Penny Serenade

Synopsis: As Julie prepares to leave her husband Roger, she begins to play through a stack of recordings, each of which reminds her of events in their lives together.

Hi, Joe!

Hello, Homer!

Just off the boat!

Julie, had Jack called ?

That's none of your business!

You don't have to bite my head off!

Oh, I'm sorry!

It may have called, or something!

He said he may get out for a story.

Julie, has he ever said anything?

You know what I mean..

No, not right now.

That's what I thought.

Men never say anything,

you must drag it out of them


Let me take your things!

Put them someplace where

I can grab them faster.

I don't belong here.

Of course you belong here.

Didn't I invite you?

Come on in and meet

some of my friends.

Night's cold...

Is there a drink in the house?

Right off the boat.

That's what the bootlegger said.

- Did he say what boat?

- Well, what boat would you like?

We have all the labels.

Come on, help yourself.


- Never use it.

You know, this party

may turn out all right at that.

- Where's Roger?

-I thought maybe you'd know.

You're crazy about that reporter,

aren't you?

I'm sort of fond of him.

That's bad.

I hate seeing a nice girl like you

getting mixed up with a newspaper man.

Gosh, you never know

what they're up to.

They can get away with anything,

alibiing their work.

It's a lot of fun docking around

interviewing chorus girls

and all that sort of thing.

You think it's swell getting married...

Applejack, don't worry about me.

I don't need any advice.

I never even thought

about getting married.

- No fooling?

- No fooling.

- Well I've been worried sick.

- About what?

I've been telling him for six months

if he doesn't keep away from you

he'll find himself married.

Julie, I've got to talk to you

right away.

Hello!When dd you get here?

I wanna talk to you!

It's something important to you

Where can we be alone?

Why alone, I'm having fun.

Don't be angry, Julie.
