your lovebird story...

- I really wanted the lovebirds.

You knew I didn't work here.

You deliberately...

I recognized you when I came in.

I thought you might like

to know what it's like to be

on the other end of a gag.

What do you think

of that?

I think you're a louse.

I am. Good day,

Miss Daniels. Madam.

And I'm glad you didn't get

your lovebirds.

I'll find something else.

See you in court.

Who was that man?

I have no idea.

[Cable Car Bell Dinging]

They said the mynah bird would

be here later this afternoon,

if you care to come back.

No, you'd better send him.

May I use this phone?

Why, certainly.

Daily News?

It's Melanie Daniels.

Could you get me the City Desk?

Just a minute,

Mrs. MacGruder.

Hello, Charlie.


I want you to do

a favor for me.

No, this is a small one.

Pressure you?

Why, Charlie, darling,

would I try to pressure you?

Would you call the Department

of Motor Vehicles for me?

Find out who owns

this license plate:

W- J-H-0-0-3.

Yes, a California plate.

No. I'll stop off

in a little while.

Is Daddy in his office?

No, I don't want

to break in on a meeting.

Tell him I'll see him later.

Thank you, Charlie.

Do you have any lovebirds?

Well, no, not in the shop,

but I can order them for you.

How soon?

Well... Well, when

would you want them?


Well, I could probably have them

here by tomorrow morning.

Would that be

all right?

That would be just fine.


[Door Slides Closed,

Elevator Hums]

[Door Slides Closed]

Miss, is that

for Mitch Brenner?


He's not home.

That's all right.

He won't be back

until Monday... I mean,

if those birds are for him.



I don't think you should leave

them in the hall, do you?

Well... Where did he go?

Bodega Bay.
