They left on their honeymoon.

- How long did she have to wait?

- Only 33 years.

- Some honeymoon.

- Can't have everything.

- I think that's a beautiful story, Emil.

Thank you, Mildred.

Incidentally, Johnny,

may I talk to you alone?

No. You still haven't paid me back

the 5 I loaned you last week.

Don't be too hasty. This is a sure thing.

I've got a horse going in the third so fast

that he'll win the second.

- No.

- He doesn't trust me.

I don't approve of betting on horses.

You don't approve of lots of things,

but lots of people do them.

We don't have much time.

Would you snap it up

and get me the merchant's lunch?

Typical bank clerk. No real merchant

ever ordered the merchant's lunch.

I've been telling you for years,

you've gotta learn to enjoy life.

Live dangerously.

I'll get you the pickled pig's feet.

I hate pickled pig feet.

- These have all had pedicures.

- The merchant's lunch.

No daring.

No imagination.

Typical bank clerk.

Mildred here, she's an adventurer.

- She loves pickled pigs' feet.

- The merchant's lunch.

- What's the matter? The wedding off again?

- Will you please get us the lunch?

- You're not getting any younger, you know.

- Our lunch, Emil.

And neither are you.

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may

Old time is still a-flying:

And this same flower that smiles today

Tomorrow will be dying.

Then be not coy, but use your time

And while ye may, go marry.

For having lost but once your prime

You may for ever tarry.

Robert Herrick, 1583.

Do we have to have poetry?

Why not? It goes with the lunch.

- What a character.

- He makes sense, though.

- Johnny?

- Yeah?

Have you ever thought about

what's gonna happen to you? To us?

- Are we just gonna go on and on and on?

- Who said we're just gonna go on and on?
