- Yes?

- How much money you got?

- 've got a quarter.

That's wonderful. Stop in on your way

up here and pick up lunch for us.

- How many?

- Three.

Okay. Just as soon

as I get something on.

There's a fine contribution to a million

dollar proposition, one whole quarter.

Maybe, but she's awful

clever with a quarter.

I just don't know how I'll ever

be able to thank you enough.

I'm still so embarrassed.

You have no reason to be. Anybody can

forget their money. I've done it myself.

I know, but...

Oh, hi, honey.

- Come on in.

- Come in.

This is a gentleman I met

at the cold cuts counter.

- What did you say your name was?

- Tom Brookman.

B- R-O-O-K-M-A-N.


Well, this is my friend,

Miss Pola Debevoise.

- How do you do?

- Oh, and this is Miss Page, isn't it?

- Mrs. Page.

- How do you do? t was very funny.

I was ordering some pastrami

and potato salad,

and I heard Miss Dempsey explaining

she only had a quarter...

You can just set that down.

We'll take it from here.

Oh, wouldn't you like me

to put them in the kitchen?

No, I don't think you'd better.

The cook's not dressed.

- Oh, really?

- Thank you very much.

Some other day.

Give us a ring next week.

- don't know your number.

- That's all right. It's in the book.

Thank you very much,

Mr. Brookman.

- But I don't know your first name.

- He was really very nice.

I thought he might

have lunch with us.

Look, the first rule of this proposition

is that gentleman callers

have got to wear a necktie.

I don't want to be snobbish,

but if we begin with characters like that,

we might just as well

throw in the towel right now

Thanks, Mick.

Keep the change.

- How do, Mr. Brookman?

- Hiya, Pete.

The next thing to remember is

a gentleman you meet among cold cuts
