Oh, it's a beauty.

I bet it could go anywhere.

Doggone it. He would come

just when I'd holed in for the day.

Hello, Johnny. Johnny!

The name is not Johnny.

Never was Johnny.

Tie her off on the bow, sweet.

- I thought you were somebody else.

- I always seem like somebody else.

Here. Snub it off against that cleat,

will you?

The name is Brian.

I said, the name is Brian. Say it.


- Again?

- Brian.

You give it something it never had before.

Give me a hand, will you?

- One.

- Hey.



I can see where I gotta make

this stop more often.

Now, let's see if you're as practical

as you are beautiful. One.

- Hey.

- Oh, well, all right.

Come on.

There you are.

Got some money for me, Ed?


- Foster?

- Yes?

- Stuff from Hanson's.

- Hanson's?

Johnny Dutton used to bring the stuff.

- Johnny Dutton used to.

- Here, sign right there.

Say, don't you think

I ought to know my assistant?

Well, this is my daughter, Emily.

- Emily, this is, Mr...

- Brian MacLean.

I'm very pleased to meet you, I think.

The pleasure's all yours.

After meeting you,

I know she got that from her mother.

I think I like it.

Take it easy, Sam.

Johnny will be here in a few minutes.

I'll wait. I'm way behind

in my loafing anyway.

Do so many men pass through here

that you can afford to ice me?

Or maybe you're saving yourself up for

old fuzzy-face down on the pier. Is that it?

That's better.

He looks as though he'd been waiting

a long time for something.

He's waiting for my fianc.


Well, competition. I like that.

It makes me look better.

Who's the unlucky guy?

Johnny Dutton.

Johnny Dutton, the flier?

And he's a very jealous man.

And you say that old fuzzy-face

is waiting for him?

Well, darling, I'll see you a little later.
