A sailor's heart has to be pure, Benny.
Our hearts wasn't pure so we got punished.
Don't trouble your head,
I'm the brains of this outfit.
- It's the civilians.
They sell elephants to sailors
- And for more money.
America's secret weapon.
- Here's a letter, handsome.
- For me?
- Excuse me.
Understand you guys are in for life this time.
Well, cheer up, shouldn't be too long.
- We can wait. Hey, McGonagall.
proposition? Double your money.
Last time I fell for that,
you doubled your money.
and fight inflation.
- Holy smoke, I'm an heiress!
- You're a what?
- Says I gotta go to...
- Let me see that.
Auntie left you 1450 bucks.
- We'll sue.
- What for?
- She was a civilian, wasn't she?
- And what do civilians do?
- They sell elephants to sailors.
- And what do sailors do?
- Sell 'em back again for more money.
Probably more like a million.
As long as she left you the dough.
It says Tim has to go to the bank
to collect it.
By the time you get out of the brig, the
interest will be worth more than a million.
Man's got a point. Tell the lieutenant
we gotta see him. Show him the letter.
- Aye aye, sir. Anything else?
- Yeah, you owe me two bucks.
But, Benny, it ain't right
to sue my dead aunt.
All right, if you want to be selfish,
I'll wash my hands of the responsibility.
You're on your own.
Lose a million dollars, see if I care.
But, Benny, I don't want a million, I
just want the $1450 my Aunt Gussie left me.
- Did you say Gussie?
- That's what it said in the letter.
I used to know a girl in Brooklyn
- Is this her?
- She don't look like nobody's aunt to me.
with the man who was almost your uncle.
You used to know my Aunt Gussie?
She'd carry my schoolbooks.
Sometimes she'd carry me.
We were practically as one. Even less.
If it hadn't been for the call of the sea
and the draft board
- Yeah, but it says me in the letter.
- A mere technicality.
Not like some people.
- We're partners, aren't we?
Gonna cut you in for half.
- Gee, thanks, Benny.
Just about everything.
But don't sue Aunt Gussie.
Wouldn't be respectful, her being dead.
With my brains and 1450 bucks,
I'll run it into a million anyway.
Hear that? It's already working.
I told them not to let him
I knew somebody'd sell him an elephant.
Any idea what kind of elephant?
Search me, I only work here.
What'd they sell him, Brooklyn Bridge?
Put it back before they notice.
Benny, I didn't have enough to buy that.
- I bought a horse.
- A horse? Just what we needed.
Why a horse? Have we got a wagon?
Who's gonna feed him?
- I bet he eats like a horse too.
- He's a racing horse.
A racing horse. Not Man Of War?
We sold Man Of War
to that cluck in Honolulu.
- Had you forgotten?
