Oh, my. That is serious Nautilus.


Thank you.

Those are fine-looking racquets

you got there, girls.

What are they, Heads?

Joe, there's a phone call for you.

Do me a favor and take it for me, will you?

I met them on separate nights.

How could I know they're sisters?

- You're in a lot of trouble, Joe.

- No way.

I got a date with the little one at 7:00

and the older one at 9:15. Plenty of time.

What about Theresa?

What about Theresa?

Doesn't she notice anything

when you go with someone for a while?

Like you used to go with that girl before.

Doesn't she think anything's up?


Theresa's got the kids to worry about.

She's too busy to notice anything.

And they're great kids.

She's 38 years old,

she's a very happily married woman.

You see. She smiles all the time.

- Does she do it?

- Does she do what?

What do you mean, "Does she do what?"

- What do you mean, "Does she do what?"

- Does she does she do it, too?

- Do what, too?

- Does she have affairs, too?

Teddy, you're my friend, and I love you.

You're a sweet, sensitive guy...

...but you're very naive.

To think that my Theresa...

...would fool around?

- I just asked a question.

Do you believe this man asking

whether my Theresa would fool around?

I find it hard to imagine

your wife sleeping with you.


What am I laughing at?

Are you sure?

All right, I'll let him know. Thank you.

- Are you staying for lunch, Doctor?

- No. Joe!

What else did the neighbor say?

Nothing. She was coming over

to return a warming tray...

...and she ran into the bunch

coming down the steps.

Theresa, the kids, and all the furniture.

There was a big van waiting for them.

What a bitch.

Come on, she was our friend, too.

Wonder if it was her furniture?

- Why do you have to talk about that?
