by using that tone of voice...

...to this young lady?

Why, you ought to be

ashamed of yourself.

Besides, you have no right...

...leaving your car parked here

in other people's way.

Now, listen,

if this happens again...

I'm going to see to it


Why don't you get a shave?

It's too bad

that this had to happen, Miss.

If he annoys you again,

you just let me know.

Thank you very much.

Oh, oh, the pleasure's

really all mine.

- Good-bye.

- Good-bye.

- Oh.

- Oh.

Oh, I-I'll get it.

I don't know how I can ever

thank you, Mister...

- Harold.

- Mr. Harold.



Uh, now,

let that be a lesson to you.

Listen, Kramer,

you're an incompetent idiot.

You haven't got any more

backbone than a steamed clam.

Now, you get busy

and get some results...

...or you're discharged,

understand me?

D- i-s... You're fired!

Get me that number back again.

I know, I know.

Hello? Hello.

Is this you, Kramer?

Did I call you an idiot?

I did. OK.

Mr. Tanner,

is there something wrong?

Something? Everything.

If the rest of the people

I have working for me...

...were half as efficient

as you are...

I'd be happy as a schoolboy.

There's no such thing

as a perfect man.

Oh, Mr. Tanner,

I think you're mistaken.

There is.

- There is what?

- A perfect man.

Have you been

holding out on me, young lady?

I met him this afternoon.

She is beautiful.

You know, Mr. Carson...

I... I've always dreamed

of meeting the one girl.

Today I... I went around

the corner, and there she was.

You've got it bad,

haven't you, my son?

Say, are you gonna talk

about that girl all night...

...or are you going

to thread my needle for me?

Huh? Oh, I almost forgot.

I'll get it right away,

Mr. Carson.

When are you gonna

see her again?
