I'm tired of working.

well, I'm afraid I can't do that. Not today.

why not?

well, you see, it's Jack's anniversary.

He and Lily are having a big blowout

tonight, and I gotta be there.

Oh, yeah?

Yeah, you know how it is.

Lily's gone ahead

and cooked up a lot of stuff.

why, if I didn't show up, she'd burn up.

How about taking me with you?

Oh, no, no, I couldn't do that.

why not?

well, you see, it's this way.

Lily ain't like you and...

Yeah, I see.

I ain't good enough for Lily Kulper.

Go there yourself, and stay there.

wait a minute. You got me all wrong.

If I ain't good enough

...I wouldn't marry you

if you were the last man on Earth.

Okay, pal.

Oh, hello, Jack.

Hello, Haley.

Looks like you're gonna garden

That's about all I've got room for out there.

Yeah? Say, how's Bill White

getting along up front?

All right. why?

Keeping sober?


Not drinking a thing, huh?

Not as far as I know.

well, I'm glad to hear it.

Going to sleep in the bathtub

with the water running and all.

You ought to be ashamed of yourself.

Listen, I wa...
