How do crpes

with cream and truffles sound?


I will need 10 bucks

for truffle shavings, though.

I didn't know that truffles shaved.

Nice move!

Thank you.

Have you ever wondered,

"What's the meaning of life?

Why do we exist?"

The answer to this vexing question

is now within your reach!

You'll find it

in a small, amazing booklet,

which will explain

in easy to follow, simple terms

your reason for being!

Don't patronize me!

The booklet,

printed on the finest paper,

contains illuminating,

exquisite color pictures

and can be yours

for a mere $9.99.

I'm not screaming!

Yes, you are.

I'm not!

I'm just talking very loud.

I don't get it.

I said I wanted to marry you.

No, no.

You said you're willing to marry me.

It's not that I'm against it.

I just... don't think

that it's important.

Marriage isn't important.

A baby isn't important.

A career isn't important.

What goes on in the world

isn't important.

What is important?

Marriage, kids...

Listen to yourself.

You sound like an old maid.

Ron, I am an old maid.

We don't all manage to stay 15.

Are you all right?

Yes. Why?

You've been crying.

No, it's just allergies.

I know how it is.

I have a lot of those,

especially to cats.

Not the cats themselves...

their hair, actually.

Not even their hair,

but the saliva on their hair.

It's a shame, because I

would really like to have one.

They're so cuddly.

You are crying.

Here, have a cookie.

Soccer Jack

passes from the left...

Let me help you.

I'm fine, thank you.

Hi, Dave.

Would you like a cookie?

Oh, sorry, Mr. Kweller.

I have to run to the Post Office.

So, have one for the road.

They're very good.


You know, I once had a cousin

who worked for the Post Office.

- He wasn't exactly my cousin...

- I'm sorry.
