Let's go, boys.


- Look who's here.

- Hello.

Guth, how many times

have I told you...

...I don't even wanna look

at a man before 5:00.

Out! Outside, both of you.

Oh, now, Belle, honey, all we want

is just a... All we want is...

That takes in a lot of territory, Belle.

Lieutenant Gary, I have nothing

against you or the Army.

Well, I sincerely hope not, ma'am.


- What am I, your maiden aunt?

- No, ma'am.

- Call me Mrs. Aragon.

- Mrs. Aragon.

And not too interesting either.

I can tell when a man

walks through that door...

...whether he prefers

blonds or brunettes...

...drinks whiskey or beer...

...plays blackjack or poker... a cheapskate or a high roller.

- Is that a fact?

Well, how do you peg old Jim here?

Oh, excuse me.

- Beer, blonds and solitaire.

- Solitaire, that's me.

And that'll be four bits, Guth.

He hasn't got a dime.

You called it. I haven't got a dime.

Except I'm not so sure

about blonds.

No man ever is.

- That's true.

- Well, Jim...

...what brings you to town?


Well, sure. I didn't think you'd ridden
