- Alan Garroway.

Not Garroway.

I bet he comes in riding piggyback

on Henry Kaiser.

Not Kaiser. Just Garroway,

flying in from San Francisco.

Dink, you're joking. Not Garroway.

Why does everyone say, "Not Garroway"?

What's wrong with him?

You mean you don't know?

The young captain of industry.

The inventor of the famous

distance controller?

Ask a foolish question, get a foolish...

Is he married?

For full details on Mr. Garroway,

read practically any issue...

...of practically any magazine.

"Read your monograph on tetradite.

Taking this liberty.

Stopping by.

See you early this afternoon."

If I didn't know it before, I know it now:

I've got a famous father.

People come from all over the world

just to see you.


he's strictly big business, you know.

Smooth as patent leather.

Met him in Washington. Didn't like him.

You won't either.

Don't be too sure. Eggs are getting cold.


Pray for me.

Go to it, Rummy. Get going,

get going fast. Get go... And then...

...believe it or not,

he scooped up that fumble...

...and he ran 29 yards with it

before he was called back.

Lucy, I bet you wonder what I'm doing.

It's 6:

Good gosh.

- Where does the time go?

- Oh, don't worry. He's still here.

He must be long-winded.

What does he look like?

There's nothing wrong with him.

Dinner's been ready for half an hour.

I've got to rescue Dink.

His stomach always begins to growl

before 6 and your lovely dinner.

I'm not worrying about my dinner

or your father's stomach.

Why hasn't your father

had you in there to meet him?

- What do I know about tetradite?

- Quit talking silly.

That's got nothing to do with it.

It certainly is taking Dink a long time

to brush him off.

- Okay.

- That's all you're gonna do to yourself?

- You're a mess.
