the rest of our lives with someone.

Why can't it be the person I want?

Why do I have to settle for less?

Well, I'll tell you why.

Because guys like us...

Look, guys like us don't end

up with girls like that.

Why not? Is that written down somewhere?

Is that a rule?

Why not? Tell me, why not?

You know what you need?

You know what you need?

You need someone you can trust.

You need somebody who's dependable.

If I want dependable, I'll marry a Volvo.

That's funny.

10 minutes ago,

I had two tickets to paradise.

Now I got nothing.

I'm sorry.

What the hell?

What do you want me to do?

You want me to hold ya?

You're scaring me, Marty. Go home.

Well, what are you gonna do?

Look, you have a wife and a

beautiful daughter waiting for you.

It's Christmas Eve,

go on home. I'll be fine.

- What are you gonna do?

- I'll be fine.

All right.

Merry Christmas.


Merry Christmas.


- Hello, fat man.

- Merry Christmas.

We're in a hurry.

I'm sorry, could you hold, please?

It'll be just another minute, Mrs. Stein.

Excuse me, who can I see

about getting a refund

- on some tickets, please?

- I'm sorry, could you hold?

I'll be right with you.

All right, everything's okay, Mrs. Stein.

Your seats are confirmed.

The kosher meal is a veal chop.

Meat gives Walter gas.

- Okay.

- Is there someone else here I could see?

I'm sorry, it's just me.

I'll be with you in a minute.

How about the vegetarian plate?

Vegetarian plate.

But no broccoli.

Sunray Tours. How may I put a

sunray smile on your face?

- Broccoli gives Walter diarrhea.

- I'm sorry.

And he likes the window seat.

That's nice. If I could just

get a quick credit here.

I'm sorry, could you hold, please?

I'll be right with you just as soon as

I've finished with these people.
