You requisition those Fresnel lenses?

I'll answer that tomorrow.

The working day has ceased.

Just starting for me.

Drop me at the house.

Frank, do you realise

that at this very hour...

...the Officers' Club is jam-packed

with two-legged goodies.

We owe it to our brethren at sea

to do unto others... they would

if they had our chance.

Darrell, it may come as a shock...

...but there are other things

besides girls.

Yeah, women.

Now, don't tell me

it isn't on your mind.

Any fella who has 10 children

just doesn't quit cold turkey.

And if you'd only just...

Why don't you watch where you're...

Oh, hello.


Well, old Sam the hermit gets out

of the cave once in a while, huh?

She had my Cream of Wheat

and I had her Post Toasties.

- What?

- Saw her at the commissary, that's all.

Frank, what's wrong with you?

You gonna be an old maid

the rest of your life?

You really think that's what Frances

would've wanted?

Probably not, but give me time.


You're a borderline case already.

You may only have a few more

cruises left in you.

- Come on in. I'll buy you a beer.

- I thought you'd never ask me.

You can stop worrying about me.

Things are looking up.

I finally found a housekeeper

who seems to have staying power.

Soon I'll ask you to loan me

your little black book, but right now...

Where you going, Mrs. Anderson?

Mrs. Anderson was last week.

I'm Mrs. Ferguson,

and you can mail me my check.

She left her broomstick.

All right, what happened this time?

Who did what to Mrs. Ferguson?

All right, one at a time.

One at a time.

- She and Louise had a fight.

- A bad fight.

Louise wouldn't come out

of the bathroom for an hour.

She went in, and they were yelling.

- Is that strawberry jam on your hands?

- Raspberry.
