Do him some good?

I'm glad Mom and Dad aren't here

to see the good you're doing yourself.

Can that Sunday-school talk.

Think I'm gonna ride to heaven

on 30 a week from a sweatshop?

Be a working stiff all my life,

like you?

- Times have changed.

- You bet times have changed.

The people are against

you monkeys now.

The people ain't doing so good either.

I don't know what's so hot about you.

Crazy in love with a swell gal

and can't make enough to get married.

- Leave Katherine out of it!

- Leave me out. Stop living my life.

I wouldn't live your life

for all the money in the world.

Okay, Reverend. Okay.

"Memento," darling. "Memento."


Come in.

It's a special delivery

this time, Miss Grant.

- I hope nothing's happened.

- Oh, no.

They come faster than when I was a girl,

but I guess the insides don't change.

- He's coming, Mrs. Whipple!

- No.

Wedding, marriage license.

He's bought a car.


- Be sure and kiss Katherine for me.

- Happy landings, fella.

Don't let the Indians

get you out there.

You keep your chin clean.

Look after the kid.

You can trust me.

Rainbow, take care of Joe.

- Goodbye, boys.

- So long, Joe.

- Is there gas in it? Bye-bye.

- All right.

War and crime.

Strikes, taxes.

And some weenies for his dog

and an avocado for him.

They call them alligator pears back East,

cost a fortune. Think he'll like them?

He won't know what he's eating

for being with you again.

What time will I make lunch for?

I'm leaving for Sycamore Corners

by bus on the main road.

I wrote him to meet me there

at 11:
00 at that hot dog stand.

We'll be back by noon sure.

Golly, Mrs. Whipple,

I can hardly stand it.

Over a year now.

Stop your motor, buddy.

Get both hands up

on that wheel there.

What is this, a holdup?
