lock yourself in the toilet...

...and don't come out.

All right...

What happened today?

- Nothing happened.

- Oh, obvious.

What happened, nothing happened.

Great day. Marvelous day.

What a I going to tell you?

I'm sick and tired of that...

...kind of life I lead.


Hey, Barb...


A friend of mine asked me if I'd ask you...

...if you knew the name of maybe a kind of

doctor or something.

He's got himself in a little trouble

with a girl.

Hey, Barb...

You want me to find you a doctor?

You want me to find you a doctor?

Now wait a minute, I didn't...




Hey, Angie, over here!

Come on.

What are you looking? We happened to pass

by you in the neighborhood... what's so terrible to give you

a ride home?

It's embarrassing the fruit truck

all the time.

Excuse me very much, your highness.

When I start hauling vegetables in a limousine...

...I'll pick you up in a limousine.

All right, I grant you that time

you went to the dance and everything... were all dressed up and everything.

I can see maybe you don't want

to ride in a truck.

But now you got on your regular clothes

in the daytime.

You're right, Dominic,

what can I tell you?

When you're right, you're right.

Go talk to her lately,

anything you say.

Drive, will you, drive!

I got a date tonight.

She won't run away, I guarantee you.

Miss skin and bones.

Going out tonight, Angie?


Why, I'm making conversation.

All right, who did you happen

to bump into today?

- What're you talking, will ya?

- Nobody?

Tell her, Julie, what happened.

Did I do anything? Tell her.

We bumped into, what's his name, Columbo.



Is that nice?

Why do you call a person names?

Clumsy, Clumsy. He can't turn around
