Chances are cos

I wear a silly grin.

The moment you come into view.

Chances are you think that

I'm in love with you.

Just because my

composure sorta slips.

The moment that your

lips meet mine.

Chances are you think my

heart's your valentine.

In the magic of moonlight.

When sigh hold me close, dear.

Chances are you believe the

stars that fill the skies.

Are in my eyes.

Guess you feel you'll always be.

The one and only one for me.

And if you think you could.

Well, chances are Your chances are.

Awfully good


There's something

I have to tell you.


I'm in love with Corinne.

I know.

Dearly beloved, we are gathered

together here in the sight of God

and in the face of this company

to join together this man and

this woman in holy matrimony,

which is an honourable

state, instituted of God...

Washington DC Enactment of the Civil

Rights Bill by July 4th was assured today

when Representative Howard Smith

announced a meeting of the

House Rules Committee.

Mr Smith a Virginia Democrat

made his announcement only 24 hours

before the majority of Congress



Happy anniversary!

- You're dressed.

- Yeah, but I don't have to be.

Well, get undressed and get back

in bed. I have something for you.

- Well, can't you give it to me here?

- No, I want to give it to you there.

Come on!


No, Louie. That's not

the way I planned it.

So this is a planned thing.

Yes. I wanted to be here in bed when I

gave you your anniversary present, because

this is where it was made.

We're having a baby?

A baby?!


To be happy for the rest of your life

Never make a pretty woman your wife.

Though from my

personal point of view


I started without you.

Happy anniversary!

What is this?

A cherry tree. And it

promises to bear fruit.

- Which is more than I can say for you two!

- You shouldn't have.

To my two favourite people.


We're having a baby.

How are we going to break

the news to Louie?


- Are you working today?

- Lady Bird's launching a new petunia bed.

I'm the lucky stiff who gets to

cover it. Not to be missed!

- Big interview? - Yes, I'm

interviewing Lady Bird's gardener.

Philip, I think we'll

call the tree George.


- Philip!

- Hey, now don't forget. 8 o'clock.

Remember my cousin Ann?

She was at our wedding?

- The one with the overbite?

- She's having them worked on!

She's coming up from

Charlottesville for the weekend.

- Maybe the four of us could get together.

- Louie...!

- Well, OK. Just thought I'd ask.

- Don't ask.

Good time...


Mr Jeffries! Come in.

Come in, come in!

She is going to love these.

An excellent choice.

Give my regards to your wife.

And happy anniversary!

In view of the testimony of the

witness and the arguments of counsel,

I have decided to grant the defendant's

motion to suppress the evidence.

Permission to approach the

bench, Judge Fenwick.


Your Honour, I won't have a case.

Without that evidence, the counts

against Tony Bonino are out the window.

I have to follow the rules

of evidence, Louie.

In my judgement a search

warrant was required,

therefore the evidence

is inadmissible.

But he'll be back on the streets.

We know Bonino is one of the most

cunning and powerful individuals

in organised crime.

Are you quite through?

Court is adjourned.


Listen, I've got something here.

- It's a tip or something.

- Yeah? What is it?

- Something on Bonino.

- Bonino?

- Interested huh?

- Oh, yes, I'm interested!

The beach, Roosevelt Island. 6.30.

Judge Fenwick! My God!
