Excuse me, lieutenant.


I'm all through, John dear.

Is it okay, honey?

- Yeah, go clean the paint buckets.

After that?

I'll think of something.

- Okay.

Hiya, Tony.

Got a good thing in the fourth.

Last thing you gave me

wore snowshoes.

- But this is a sure thing.

- Then you bet it.

I, play horses?

- Any messages?

Birdie, any messages for Tony?

Oh, yes, John dear.


Are you gonna keep it a secret?

You wrote it down, honey.

That's right, it's your answering service.

I think you got a new client.

Give me the message, John.

- They said it's very urgent.

All they gave me was an address.

- No name? Just an address?

- No name.

Which one are you, Sandra or Maria?

Hey, that's funny. I like a guy

with a sense of humor.

- Hm.

- You got anything else funny to say?

Yeah, what sells best,

the frozen peas or the corn?

You gotta be kidding.

Toss it over on the chair. Easy.

That was a very gutsy thing

you just tried.

I like gutsy guys.

- You're pretty fast for a big man.

- Yeah.

It surprises folks.

It surprises some of them

right to death.

- Now, who are you?

- I'm a private detective.

Somebody called me up,

told me to meet them here.

Give me your wallet.

Yeah, you're the one.

I sent for you, Rome.

Well, you can put that cannon away.

I'm a little insecure.

Sorry about that.

Just being careful. You know how it is.


- Have a seat.

- Comfy?

- Yeah.


...that blond dame you picked up

in the drink.

What'd she look like?


Yeah, did she have a birthmark

right here?

I don't know.

I didn't get that close to her.

Yeah. Yeah, it wouldn't have been

Sandra anyway.

When she goes, it'll be in bed,

and she'll take the guy too.

- You're hired.
