your dress?

I hung up my dress, put away my shoes,

brushed my teeth...

- washed my neck, face, hands and ears.

- Nice work.

?[Jazz ]

I used to have curls

all over my head once.

- Ooh, that must've been lovely.

- Yes, but they were lots of trouble.

? [ Humming ]

Now, don't you sit up

and listen to that music.

You just shut your eyes

and go right to sleep.

- I'll shut my eyes, but it'll

probably come in through my ears.

- [ Laughs ]

? [ Continues ]

?[ Up-tempo ]

Hiya, Butch!


- Willoughby.

- Yes, sister?

Close that window.

Hand me the telephone book.

Yes, Sister.

You seem to be enjoying

that horrible racket.

Hmm? [ Clears Throat ]

Well, I-I was carried away

for the moment.


Yes, Miss Wendling, this is

Mr. Shea's daughter. My father--

I'm awfully sorry. The boys

are rehearsing, but I'd be glad to--

I'm tired of warning

you people.

I won't have my nights disturbed

by a lot of noisy riffraff.

I won't put up with it

any longer.

I'm sorry, Miss Wendling.

I'll go right up and--

?[ Continues ]

- What's the matter?

- She called us a lot of riffraff.

- Who?

- Our landlady.

- I didn't know we had one.

- Well, if you ever see a pumpkin...

in one of the windows next door and it

isn't Halloween, that's our landlady.

[ Sighs ]


I can't look out my window without

seeing a lot of acrobats, Jugglers...

midgets and actors.

How much rent does

the Hotel Variety owe?

$2,500 past due

since the 1 2th.

Write a letter...

to what's-his-name-- Shea.

- Sarah!

- Ah!

Tell him unless his rent is paid

within five days, in full, out he goes.

- Come on. In you go.

- Oh, boy. Oh, boy. Oh, boy.

I've gotta go up there and

see about stopping that music.

- Oh, no. I like it.

- You do?

- Yes, especially that song.
