Meanwhile, make yourself at home.

Thanks a lot.

Oh, I'm sorry!

Here you are.

Where'd you get the men's pajamas?

Oh, they're my husband's,

but we're separated.

Here, put this on. It'll

help keep you warm, I think.

Oh, thank you. Thank you.

Boy oh boy oh boy,

what a night that was.

Go on.

Let's wet our whistles

first. Here's looking at you!

Sorry pal. Go on with your story.

Well, there we were in the living room

waiting for my suit to

come back from the cleaners.

She was fond of music

and I was playing the piano and singing.

I was trying to impersonate

that guy with the candelabra.

Home, home on the farm!

In Georgia, our farm had such charm.

And mama's so sweet,

cooks good things to eat.

In Georgia, down on the farm.

How was that?

Oh, that's wonderful.

You're quite a musician.

Just fair. I play that in four sharps.

I used to play in five flats

but I got kicked out of the last one.

Oh, what a lovely ring! May I see it?


- Thank you very much!

- Oh no! No no no!

Now wait a minute. Give

me that now, give me that!

Oh, it went down that hole.

Excuse me. I'm expecting

an important phone call.

I can't get my hands under.

Gosh, it went down further!

Oh, you cock-eyed thing.

What happened?

I feel like a pretzel.

If she sees this mess, she'll kill me.

I better get rid of it.

In here! Never saw a piano

with so much junk in it.

She'll kill me if she sees this.

She'll never know the difference. Hello!

You wrecker! Oh! Your ring!

That will pay for the

damage to my piano.

There must be a way to get that ring

without getting into

trouble with the censor.

Sweetheart! Open the

door. I forgot my key.

Oh, it's my husband.

But I thought you were separated.

We were. He was on a trip.

That's separated, isn't it?
