Oh, nonsense. They were born that way

and there's no use trying to change them.

Do you know, Mary...

that since I've started this experiment

I haven't had one case of backsliding?

Oh, Jerome, I don't know why

you have to be such a problem.

Mrs. Marvin's husband just collects stamps

but not you, oh, no.

You must have thieves and jailbirds

for a hobby.

And one is fourteen...

and five is twenty. Thank you.



There's a customer asking for you.

Can't somebody else take him?

The gentleman asked for you, Mr. Carter.

Says you know his feet.


What can I show you, sir?

Something in a buck.

Okay, sir.

White, tan or gray?

Did you have to come here?

What's the...

White, with rubber soles.

What's Joe gonna do?

Why don't you ask him?


I'm asking you.

Cut it out, will you?

Is white buck smart this season?

Very smart, sir.

Okay, what do you wanna know?

Is Joe going away?

That's what I hear.

What's he got on his mind?

It ain't your work, I can tell you that.

Why don't you leave him alone?

I can't stand it, Gimpy.

My conscience won't let me just

stand around

and see a guy with Joe's talents

rot in a job.

You ain't got any conscience.

Yeah, it kills me every time

I look at you, Gil Carter,

second story man turning into

a stool jockey.

Well, I gotta make...

Tie up my shoe.

I ain't gonna buy nothing.

And tell Joe I wanna see him

before he leaves.

And I don't mean maybe.

Listen, I'm telling you...

this is a good racket and I oughta know.

There isn't a racket I haven't tried.

Look at that grip.

Let me try it.

We have an instructor here...

If you wanna learn any new grips.

I'm just a salesman here.


I'm sold.


Oh, and I want some tennis shoes.

What do you think I need?

I wouldn't know anything about that.
