NuggetJoe, when we get through

entertaining you,

you'll be walking on the clouds

and singing like a bluebird.

Come on. Now, let's give him the old

routine that we did at the fireman's ball.

- This'll kill ya.

- Good. I wanna die.

Oh, no, no, Joe.

Wait till you get a load of this.

Uh, George, uh,

you know my wife's an angel?

You're lucky.

Mine's living.

Mine's living.!

You know, Tom,

marriage is just like a poker game.

How come? First you hold a

pretty hand, you make a pair...

Yes. And then you get three of a kind,

and the first thing you know,

you got a full house.

Ohhh! We got him!

He's in hysterics.

As long as we got him, I'm gonna

tell him another joke. Go ahead.

Do you know I've been married for 25 years

and I'm still in love with the same woman?

How come? When my wife finds

out about it, she'll kill me.

I wish somebody

would kill me.

Open up.!

Mrs. McGillicuddy.

Come on. We've gotta hide you.

She'll charge us for

three in a room. Hurry up.

I know you're in there.!

Open up.!

I want my rent!

M... Excuse me.

Mrs. McGillicuddy. Tom and I were just

saying we haven't seen enough of you lately.

If you'd stop sneaking out the backdoor,

maybe you would! You owe me three months rent.

Why, Mrs. McGillicuddy,

how charming you look.

I know. It's your hair. You've

done something different to it.

She put it on her head. I want my

money or I'm going after the police.

Oh, it's too cold a night

to go out riding on a broom.

Here, Mrs. McGillicuddy.

There you are. That should

take care of everything.

- Why, it's real!

- Sure.

And keep the change. There's

plenty more where that come from.


Wait a minute, Tom.

What's the matter?

That gold belongs toJoe.

Isn't he our pal?

Yeah. Pals share and share alike.

Everything he's got belongs to us...
