It's a little bit depraved.

I'm very anxious to meet your cousin,

cos I tried to read both his books.

I couldn't get through the first one

or the second one.

Is Maxwell going to come up alone

or will he bring a guest?

Maxwell appear without

female companionship?

You know better than that.

You look adorable.

Oh, Andrew. Um...

I don't know where he comes up

with some of these women.

He's a doctor. These poor women in

the tubercular ward show him gratitude.

Don't think I don't notice you leering

at his buxom weekend guests.

I leer. I admit it.

I look. I leer. I salivate.

I salivated the day that I met you.

Andrew, what are you doing?

- Come on, Adrian.

- It's high noon!

This'll give you an appetite.

Oh, Maxwell.

Sweetheart, listen.

We can't go on like this.

Why not?

Because my husband is beginning to

realise there's nothing wrong with me.

It's medically sound

to have periodic checkups.

Yes, but not so many. The president

doesn't have this kind of healthcare.

- Come away with me this weekend.

- Oh, I can't!

- Why? You know how I feel about you.

- You know how much I wanna come,

but it's just not possible.

This is the best weekend

of the whole summer.

- Oh, Maxwell!

- What?

If there are other guests,

we'll have to have separate rooms...

That's OK. You can always

leave your door unlocked.

- I can't.

- We'd have fun.

It's impossible! Stop asking me.


Another time, I promise.

- You swear?

- I swear. Now I have to go out.

Thank you, Doctor.

It's all right, Charles.

It's only a muscle spasm.

Come in next Tuesday at three.

I'd like to take one more look.

What are you smiling at, Miss Ford?

I was thinking about something

I read in The Katzenjammer Kids.

- What are you doing this weekend?

- Me? Oh...

I'll probably go to Coney Island. Why?
