- We do understand each other, don't we?

- Yes, we do, don't we?

- Good.

Now, I've got a little plan.

I'm sorry.

- Hello?

- Mrs. Cortland is on her way in.

Thank you, Cummings.

- I'm terribly sorry about this.

- I quite understand.

- Where did you get that?

- Out of your pocket.

- My dear, there has been a mistake.

- I see. Who is "dear, sweet Sheila"?
