Why, the very...

Watch this. Will you excuse me?

You know what you can do

with your gluteal muscle?

Give it away for Christmas.

Say, wait, wait here.

Wait a moment.

Sit down, Mrs. Pemberton,

sit down.

- What will you have to drink?

- Plenty.

- Lemonade?

- Why not?

- Right.

- Strong. Plenty of lemon.

- What do I care?

- All right. Plenty of lemon.

And another thing.

Don't call me Mrs. Pemberton.

- No?

- Pat, that's me.

Okay. I'll call you Pat.

- I want everybody to from now on.

- Why?

Friendless. That's how I feel.

I feel the whole world's against me,

and vice versa.

Did you ever feel that way, Charlie?

Every time I miss a shot.

There you are.

You've been golfing here

for quite a while.

- Quite.

- Then how come I never saw it?

Saw what?

- You're great.

- I must be.

- A natural.

- Fairly seldom.

- What's your handicap?

- My fella.

I mean on the board.

- Six.

- You ought to be two.

- I wish I were a two.

- You know what I'd like to do with you?

Enter you in the Women's National.

- Oh, no.

- Listen, if I don't know a champ...

...when I see one, what good am I?

- Oh, I haven't the time.

- We'll make it.

We'll coach hard the next 15 days.

We'll get out there, you qualify,

you play and you win.

No. I can't play golf.

I can't do anything...

- But what about out there? I saw...

- That was because I got mad. Mad.

- Well, we'll keep you mad.

- No, you see...

...I only play with Collier Weld.

And I can't do anything

when he's watching me.

- Listen, a chance like this...

- Give me Mrs. Beminger's money.

Do you mind, Charlie?

- I thought you wanted to help me.

- I tried to.

To what?

Jam me up with the biggest donor...

- I didn't mean to.

- Pat, I'm trying understand.

How could you,

when I don't myself.
