- Hmm.

Why don't you park your pride in the

alley and go and see your brother?

I'd rather go out and hold somebody

up, than ask my brother for a cent.

Don't be a sap. He's your twin, ain't he?

- What's that got to do with it?

Well it seems to me a twin

ought to go for twice as much ..

As what an ordinary

brother would go for.

I haven't even seen the

guy in over twelve years.

Well then it's a cinch.

You got him either way.

How do you figure?


If he's glad to see you, a few

dollars won't make any difference.

If he don't like the

color of your hair ..

Well he ought to pay you something on

account for having stayed away so long.


- What?

I'll go see him.

Now you're talking.

Here goes the prodigal.

I'll be waiting here fellah.

For half the fatted calf.

Good guess, Bronson.

Is my brother in?

- I ..

I .. I will see, sir.

You know that his daughter works here.

Oh yes.

Yes, and thank you very much.

Yes. Goodbye.

What's the matter, Bronson?

- Your brother, sir.


He's here?

- At the door, sir.

Tell him I don't want to see him.

And why not?

It's so much more convincing to

hear it from you directly, Arthur.

Well, brother .. how are you?

You don't seem very glad to see me.

Broke, I suppose?


How much?

Shouldn't I tell you a little

something about myself?

My pal and I just got in from China ..

- How much?

Yeah, I heard you the first time.

If I had fifty dollars ..

Fifty dollars?

Is this just the beginning?

Same, sweet brother.

That trick heart of

yours still a nuisance?

Don't disappoint yourself by the

hope that you benefit if it fails me.

Every cent I've got will go to the

Society for Egyptian Research.

It doesn't seem possible that two people

so physically alike as you and I ..
