- If you don't, I will. Officer-

- I'm sorry, but you know how these things happen.

I picked it up in a restaurant this morning,

by mistake, of course.

If you recognize it as your umbrella,

l hope you'll excuse me.

Dirty crook.

There are other ways, my friend, one of these

being first to satisfy the inner man.

Shall we go?

No, no, no. Ah.

What are you gonna order,


How 'bout some, uh, roast mallard duck

to begin with...

accompanied by a bottle of Chablis wine,

provided the year and vintage are right.

- Duck for breakfast?

- Breakfast, by all means.

After which, perhaps, uh, a Camembert,

coffee and, unquestionably, a cigar.

Under the circumstances, I would think

a dollar cigar would be just about right.

A whole dollar

for one cigar?

My dear fellow, upon such occasions as this,

one cannot afford to be niggardly.

Wait for me there

on the curb.

- Yes, sir?

- Cigar, please.

- Yes, sir. Any particular brand, sir?

- Your best.

Yes, sir.

- Enjoy your breakfast, sir?

- The duck was slightly overdone.

I do suggest you speak

to your chef about that.

- Oh, yes, sir. Certainly, sir.

- It's inferior. Is this your choice brand?

- Yes, sir.

- It is?

- Allow me, sir.

- Will there be anything else, sir?

- Just my check, please.

- Yes, sir. The check.

Yes, sir.

Check coming up.

It may interest you

to know, my good man...

that I and the minutest

coin of the realm are total strangers.

- Uh, how's that?

- I said I was broke.

Don't just stand there with your adenoids

showing. Go and call a cop.

- What's the matter?

- He says he isn't going to pay for it.

- He hasn't got any money.

- No money?

No money.

- Come on, you-

- Come on, you thief!

- What do you think, coming in here-

Oh! What are you

doing to that man?
