years, jack next against his 10.

What, then?

Make it look phony?

I always told you, I don't want

it that close to the big pot.

One card slipped in there wrong,

and you'd throw the whole thing out.

I think Charlie has

a blonde on the brain.

Yeah, that adenoid dame on the

boat's got him by the tonsils.

Oh, you leave my tonsils

out of it.

And another thing. Do I have

to tell you at this late date

that when I sneeze and pull the

cold deck out of my handkerchief,

that's a signal for you

to gab with a come-on?

Take his eyes away?

Well, I did.

You didn't grab his eyes for

10 seconds after the sneeze.

Do I have to send you

to sneezing school?

All right, boss,

if you wanna break up...

Sure. Break that

bottle up three ways.

What do I get, the cork?

Now, you boys

aren't leaving, are you?

Wasn't even thinking about it.

Well, you are.

Babe and I

have some business.

All right, niecey,

business before pleasure.

Never mind the wisecracks.

And next time you play uncle,

cut out those wet kisses. Here.

Your checks, bozos.

You're sure Morton's

check won't bounce back?

I lined up Morton, didn't I?

I told you he's President

of the Riverside Bank.

There you go. It'll bounce

back sure, a bank president.

Endorse it over to you

so he can't stop payment.

Cash it in the morning.

You know, you could raise that

check by just adding a "Y".

Now, don't start anything

crooked, Charlie. Let's shove off.

You're sticking around, Babe.

Oh, I haven't seen you in a month.

Listen, kid, that thing

you've got on is pretty thin,

but I've got tough skin,

see, and I don't feel it.

All right, let's have it.

Who did you meet on that boat?

The steward's grandmother,

and did she have it.

Some woman with you. That's why

you wouldn't let me cross with you.

Maurine Dallas Watkins

Maurine Dallas Watkins (July 27, 1896 – August 10, 1969) was an American journalist and playwright. In the 1920s she wrote the stage play Chicago (1926), about women accused of murder, the press, celebrity criminals, and the corruption of justice. Her play had a successful run on Broadway, during the roaring twenties — the play was then adapted twice for film. Watkins went on to write screen-plays in Hollywood, eventually retiring to Florida. After her death in 1969, Chicago was adapted in 1977 as a successful Broadway stage musical, which developed into an award winning 2002 film version. more…
