- You've got it.

This has no Maltese cross

on the top or on the bottom.

It can't be. The Maltese cross was on it,

I kissed it. It must have rubbed off.

It was put on with special adhesive paint.

A generation of rubbing

could not have removed it.

Mr Throckmorton,

may I present the Zoto brothers.

They take care of people I do not like.

Oh, no, let me open it.

The diamonds are in here.

Those hardly look like

the Royal Romanov diamonds.

- You may proceed, gentlemen.

- Oh!



Eight marriages wasted.

The other leg, Hannibal.

I am afraid you have to stop, I cannot

concentrate. You are wasting your time.

Mr Throckmorton is too feeble

to try to deceive me.

Revive him.

I can't understand it.

I can't understand.

- I can't understand.

- Quiet.

Who was present when you found the tin?

No one, not a soul. The door was locked.

I put it in my pocket, I...

Wait. Yes, there was someone.

A strange-looking creature,

looked more like a tramp than a truckman.

You will call the police.

Inform them that a bushy-haired shoplifter

has been at work at Herbert & Herbert's.

Give them a full description.

Offer a reward of $1, OOO for his capture.

Have all the suspects brought

to my apartment, one at a time.

Police headquarters, please.

Say kids, take five minutes.

Excuse-a me. You Mike Johnson?

- What do you want?

- I'm-a look-a for a job.

- Wrong number, I'm all cast.

- Hey, just a minute.

You're missing a big band. Somebody told

me you're putting on a show with unknowns.

You're hiring-a people

who's-a never been-a heard of.

I'm the most unheard of actor

who's never been on Broadway.

- What's your name?

- Faustino the Great.

- You never heard of me, huh?

- No.

- What did I tell you?

- What are you unknown for?
