without banging into something.

Who wouldn't be clumsy the way

you look at him?

Make 'im nervous.

Anyhow, we met him on the street.

Did we meet him on the street, Julie?

We met him on the street.

He said:
how is Angie?

I said, fine.

He said, maybe I'll drop by the house sometime.

I said, fine.

He said, maybe tonight.

I said, fine...

...wonderful that you'd like to see him.

- Exactly.

Is that all right with you, Ma?

For me? As long as he's Catholic.

Hey, Angie.

In the old days a young person had respect.

In the old days, you didn't have to like everything.

You did what you had to do...

...and if you didn't like it
