Forty-four. They're on special this week from
the Canary Islands. A real bargain.
I think I'll take them.
(Takes wallet from his pocket
hands to AUGGIE)
A good choice. You wouldn't want to celebrate
It'll keep them fresh. If they get too dry,
they'll break. And you don't want that to
happen, do you?
(Putting cigar box into a bag,
ringing up sale on the cash register)
Tobacco is a plant, and it needs the same
loving care you'd give an orchid.
Thanks for the tip.
Any time. And congratulations to you and your
wife. Just remember, though, in the immortal
woman, but a cigar is a smoke.
What does that mean?
Damned if I know. But it has a nice ring to it,
Hey, Auggie. How's it going?
Hey, man. Good to see you. What'll it be today?
Two tins of Schimmelpennincks. And throw in a
lighter while you're at it.
(Reaching for cigars and lighter)
The boys and I were just having a philosophical
interesting connections there, don't you think?
