And then later on

comes the 17 th. Here.

Take a look at the date.


God, I've blown

my own anniversary.

Sorry, kiddo.


What the hell?

Hey, if you need clothes...

the Salvation Army's

over on Fourth Street.

- These will be perfect.

- Huh? Perfect for what?

Listen, will you

do me a favor?

I worked in a department store

for half of my life.

If you don't buy something,

you put it back.


happy anniversary.

- That was yesterday.

- Go ahead, open it.

"Mexico and the Yucatn.

"Witness the spectacle

of a rare solar eclipse...

from the foot of the Mayan pyramids. "

This is a cruise.

That's right.

Deluxe accommodations.

All right,

where'd you get these?

Do you remember a guy named No-Neck?

They finally busted him.

He gave me the tickets

in lieu of the cash he owed me.

Now, wait a minute.

Somebody owed you money?

How dumb

do you think I am?

What are you gonna do? Stay cooped up

in this mausoleum you call home?

- You're still alive. Hasn't anybody told you?

- Look who's talkin'.

You're damn right,

look who's talking!

- Don't you get tired of being alone?

- No. The answer's no.

- Herbie, there's gonna be gourmet food, free drinks,

- No. No.

A bevy of pretty broads.

- Sure, because you're looking for a meaningful relationship.

- Why not?

- You've never had one in your whole life.

- I got news for you.

My whole life isn't over yet, which is

why I suggest we get on that ship...

and sip champagne

with some lonely, rich broads.

Who knows? We may get lucky

during the eclipse.

Charlie, hear me.

The answer is no.

Hold it.! Hold it.!

Coming through.!

Two customers.

Made it just in time, huh?

Herbie, come this way.

- It's the wrong section.

- It looks like our seats.

Yeah, those are

first-class seats.
