- [Sneezes]

It's a wonder I have any appetite left.

First Grandpa gets fired,

then you sneeze, then the piccolo.

All we need around here

is a great big, shiny pipe organ.

[Sniffles]

## [Humming]

Oh, good morning, Grandpa.

- Good morning, Della.

- Whatcha doin' up so early?

- I thought you'd sleep till 10:00.

- I'm not sleepy.

Take my advice.

Sleep when you can.

- You want some coffee?

- Yes. Thanks.

Only do me a favor, Grandpa.

Don't sleep too late.

Yours is the first room I clean.

I assure you, Della, I have

no intention of sleeping late.

Thanks. Say, by the way...

what are you gonna do with

yourself all day now that you're 65?

I don't know.

Oh, go to the movies, I suppose.

There's a swell double bill at the Rialto.

Or maybe you could go up to the park and

play checkers with those other old men.

- [Scoffs]

- What's so bad about that?

Personally, when I think of

the drudgery I go through day by day...

I can't wait to get to be your age...

so I can live out

my life with dignity.

Dignity can be a very

empty feeling, Della.

Yeah, well, you can get used to it,

like me with the cooking.

Hey, I just thought of somethin'.

With you not workin',

you won't be bringin' any money in.

I'm afraid not.

Well, if you'll pardon

my saying so, Grandpa...

that's gonna be quite a blow.

- Financially speaking, I mean.

- I expect so.

Yeah, especially with the way prices

are going up these days.

Yesterday I went in to buy a soup bone...

just a common, ordinary soup bone.

"Seventy-eight cents," he says.

"Seventy-eight cents," I says to him.

"You used to throw 'em in for nothin'."

"Not no more," he says.

"Seventy-eight cents."

That'll give you a faint idea. Soup bones!

Seventy-eight cents!

[Scoffs, Sighs]

- So what happened then?
