You don't wanna wake the babies.

Next, please!

You tell me when you're ready, okay?

Don't bark, darling.

How's it going, honey? Looks like

everything's under control in here.

- You look...

- Overworked.

Just because I'm the shop steward,

you're trying to overwork me.

I know, it's the basic anti-union

tendencies coming to the fore... that you're management.

- I'm not anti-union.

All bosses are.

Goes with the territory.

Don't you bedroom-eye me,

boss-man. I work here, remember.

I remember a lot of things.

Well, you get A for remembering.

But what is starting is finished.

Because we are on the opposite sides

of the bargaining table, buster.

I swear to you, if you don't get me

some help here fast...

...I'm gonna wire Chicago and you'll be...

- Honey, you know me.

- Before you can say "Daddy Warbucks."

- I'll take care of everything.

My, she sings with such emotion,

doesn't she?

Now, would you like

to hear her recite "Rosa"?

Do you know, there isn't a dry eye in our

parlor when she does her "Rosa."

No, that's fine. Thank you.

- You're next.

- My hubby's in the committee.

And Lily-Jeanne's met your Mr. Hale.

He said she was something.

Well, thank you very much.

What would you two like to do?

Can you play "Darktown Strutters Ball"?

We just do the chorus.

Would you mind repeating the last

eight bars? That's what we'd get off on.

Her mother used to be a dancer.



Where's your mother?

What's the matter with you?

Where you going?

Well, I have to pick up Carol

at the Chautauqua, Harry.


- Well, I have tickets.

- You got tickets and everything.

Look, what about later?

Why don't you come back later? My wife

thinks I'm at a committee meeting.

Well, I don't know.

But I'll see.

Did Nita leave?
