Come on, boy!

Get in there, Polo.

Get in there!

Atta boy! Atta boy!

All right there, Polo.

Step right up, kid.

Hey. Hey,

look at that hole, will you?

Will you look at that hole?

I'm looking, I'm looking.

So what do you want me to do?

You ought to buy me a new suit.

There's a reweaving place

on Sixth Avenue.

Reweaving? Look,

the only thing I can do

is save the hole and have

a suit weaved around it.

All right, folks,

let's quit shoving now.

Take it easy, you two.

Take it easy.

Chief, there's my son

standing right there.

He works here.

- Okay.

- Thanks.

No, I'm with him.

He's my brother.

The guy's my brother.

All right, folks,

break it up.

Pop.

Oh, Pop. Hey,

when did you get in?

This is some dive you got here.

What are all these bimbos

doing hanging on the bar?

Well, it's cold outside, Pop.

Where do you want them to go?

Looking great, Pop.

You got a real Florida suntan.

That right, Johnny?

That's right.

He looks just like a kid.

Hey, Mike. Mike, I want you

to meet my old man, Mr. Pope.

- Hi.

- Glad to know you.

Three beers.

I don't like your job, Polo.

Well, what are you

going to do, Pop?

It's, uh, it's

a living, you know?

Uh, listen, Pop, I've got

off all day tomorrow.

We're gonna take in

that ballgame, huh?

Oh, yeah. Yeah, you see,

I figured I'd kill

three birds with one stone.

First see you guys,

then take in a ballgame--

No, make mine Scotch, will you?

Then--

Hey, can't we go some place

where we can talk?

Only the yard.

Let's get out of here.

Yeah, this way, Pop.

You better get

under this shed, Pop.

Boy.

Well, what happened, Pop?

What's been going on, huh?

- Well, I finally did it.

- What?

You know that place I've been

telling you about in Palm Beach?

I took an option on it.

Oh, that's great.
