A SMASH.

AND YOU?

AT MY BEST.

I'M SO GLAD.

THANK YOU.

OH, YOU WILL?

CERTAINLY.

AS WE PLANNED.

YOU LITTLE:

TWO-FACED LIAR.

PAUL, YOU'RE MAD.

TOMORROW, EH?

NO. YOU WILL NOT SEE ME

TOMORROW OR EVER AGAIN-

UNLESS YOU BUY A TICKE TO THE BOX OFFICE.

I'M SAYING GOODBYE FOREVER.

YOU CAME OUT HERE

TO SAY GOODBYE TO ME?

NO. I CAME OUT HERE

TO PLEAD WITH YOU,

TO HOLD YOU, KISS YOU,

FALL AT YOUR FEET.

YOU'VE EVIDENTLY

CHANGED YOUR MIND.

YES,

WHEN YOU LIED AGAIN.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS

TO LOOK INTO A WOMAN'S EYES

WHEN SHE IS LYING?

FORGIVE ME.

I SHOULD BE MORE TOLERANT WITH A LIAR.

I HAVE BEEN:

ONE MYSELF SO OFTEN.

WE'LL PART WITHOU ANY FURTHER ARGUMENT-

QUIETLY AND CALMLY.

I KNOW EVERYTHING.

YOU'RE GOING WITH HIM

TOMORROW AT 9:
00

ON A PLANE TO CANADA...

TO HUNT MOOSE.

OH. SO

THAT'S THE POINT.

YOU DIDN'T TELL HIM

YOU WERE THROUGH WITH HIM.

YOU DIDN'T TELL HIM

YOU LOVE ME.

INSTEAD, YOU HELD

YOUR HUSBAND AND SAID,

"YES, DARLING,

I'LL GO WITH YOU ANYWHERE.

"I AM YOUR GOOD

AND LOYAL WIFE.

I LOVE ONLY YOU.

NOBODY ELSE."

HAH.

PAUL, PLEASE.

YOU MUST GO-

JOHN.

LOOK WHO DROPPED IN.

HELLO, MR. ORMAN.

GLAD TO SEE YOU.

HOW ARE YOU,

SIR?

I DIDN'T KNOW

YOU WERE EXPECTING

THE CELEBRATED:

MR. ORMAN TONIGHT.

I DIDN'T TELL YOU,

BUT I WAS.

PAUL OPENED:

IN A NEW SHOW TONIGHT.

OH, YES. SO THE NEW SHOW WAS A FLOP, EH?

NO. ON THE CONTRARY, I WAS A MAGNIFICENT SUCCESS.

I'M SPENDING THE WEEKEND

A FEW MILES FROM HERE.

I DROPPED IN TO WISH YOU

HAPPY HUNTING...

IN CANADA, ISN'T IT?

YES. I DO ALL

MY HUNTING IN CANADA.

OH, WHOA THERE.

NOT SO FAST.

A DRINK, MR. ORMAN?

NO, THANKS.

ETHEL?

NO. DON'T YOU THINK YOU'RE

HAVING TOO MANY, DEAR?
