The guy's liable to get away!

That's no agent. Look at that.

- Got any dough?

- Not enough.

Suit, you're about to return

to your maker.

Wait a minute. Wait here.

- Hey, young man, you!

- Me?

- Yes. Where have you been hiding?

- Where have you been looking?

Everywhere! I, no, that isn't...

What's your name?

- King Shaw.

- King Shaw. I must remember that.

I'll be right back. Here... You...

- Come on, don't high-hat me, sister.

- Okay, brother, no hard feelings. Shake.


I once knew the cutest little

Japanese banker.

- Well?

- I just saved your life.

- I told him I was you.

- Why are you me?

Because if a guy had a summons

for King Shaw...

...and handed it to Johnny Brett,

it wouldn't be legal.

Say, why didn't we think

of that before?

If you'd stop trying to corner the market

on blonds, we might keep the suit.

Are you sneaking out again tonight?

Come on, come clean. Tell Kingsie.

Where do you go every night?

- I've told you, I take dancing lessons.

- Dancing lessons. Who is she?

Why, King, I'm surprised at you.

Would I let a girl get under my skin?

Do you think I could be charmed

by a smile or a pretty face?

Look at me.

Am I the kind of a guy...

...a woman can twist around her

little finger? Now I ask you, am I?

- I don't know, are you?

- I certainly am.

Good evening.

Oh, sorry.

So sorry, sir.

- Your hat, sir.

- Oh, no.

Thank you.

- Good night, George.

- Good night, Johnny.


Come in.

Well, well, hello.

Hello. Busy?

No, no, Casey.

We're holding open house.

- Oh, that's fine.

- Clare, darling.

I'm sorry I wasn't able

to catch the show tonight.

I'm sure that Bert saw to it

everything went all right.

- Everything didn't go all right.

- You can use good news...

...and I've got it.
