- Does your face hurt?

- No, sir.

- Jack Wells should take a look at it.

I came to see you play.

- Goodbye.

- Goodbye, sir.

- Give my best to Mother.

- Yes, I will.

Briggs Hall. Sandy Davidson.

Jennifer Cavilleri.

You have a call.

She's in the downstairs phone booth.

- Where is that?

- Around the corner.

Would you please...

For God's sake, Phil!

Yes. Yeah, yeah,

for the million-and-oneth time, yeah!
