...there was an old castle, and

in the castle lived a Princess,

a lovely, lonely Princess.

Now, far, far away

from her castle,

in another country

across the sea,

was a city-

a big, busy city,

and here there was

a very grand hotel,

and in this hotel,

there was a bellboy.

Madam, your dog.

Ahh... mama's

little angel.

Him was a nice doggy, him was.

Uh, did him have a nice walk?

Oh, him did.

Uh, he did.

Hmm. Well, tomorrow, take Romeo

for his walk an hour earlier.

I'm sorry, Mrs. chettester, I have

an appointment then with a dachshund.

Oh, well, make it

the same time tomorrow.

Yes, ma'am.


Oh, thank you very much.


How did you make out today?

Oh, I did ok.

Me, too. I had one of

them rich south Americans.

A guy gave me a couple of tickets

to the fight tonight

ringside seats.

Say, would you like

to go with me, Jimmy?

Oh, I'd like to, dick. Thanks

a lot, but I'm going to be busy.

Oh, you always say

that. Busy doing what?

Is it a girl?

Come on, Jimmy. Tell

us what you do nights.

You really want to know?

Well, I'll tell you.

Every night I go home,

and I Washington the Delaware with Miami

and Toledo the Chicago

till Detroit is Cincinnati.

Oh, Albert.

Hello, Jimmy.

Come on.


Why, it's time to go home.


Hiya, babe.


Hiya, babe.


Hey, Jimmy, you know, I

just thought of something.

It's a lucky thing

for me my name is Albert.

Yeah, why?

That's what everybody

calls me-Albert.


Well, there it is.

Yeah, ain't

it? What an instrument.

Gee, won't Leslie be surprised

when we give it to her?

She will if you

don't spill the beans.

Huh? I ain't gonna spill

no beans. Not even a bean.

Hey, Jimmy, how soon

we have it all paid for?

Not very soon. Not with

the tips I've been getting.

They had me walking dogs again today.

Yeah, I seen you with a

pomeranian and then a spitz-

very fine animals.

Very bad tippers.



Hey, Jimmy, how many

more bucks we got to pay?


8, Mr. berger. I'm going to

pay you another buck right now.

Uh, 25, 35,

50, 55, 75, 90, a buck.

Thank you.

What's the matter with you?

I've a...


Something I ate, no doubt.

No doubt. What

have you got in there?

Huh? What? Where? In?

Oh, nothing, Jimmy.

Just my abdomen.

Take it back.

It's only a little one.

I said take it back.

Oh, Albert, you're

such a trial to me.

Yeah, ain't I?

Why do you do things like that?

I don't know. I guess

I'm just a weakling.

Aw, Jimmy, don't be mad at me.

It was only petty larceny.

It wasn't no felony.

It was only a misdemeanor.

Why, the rap

is only-

you've been hanging out

with hack and his gang again.


What do they want you to do?

Well, nothing bad.

Just drive a car.

Whose car?

I don't know whose car. They

ain't picked one out yet.

When are you going to get some

sense? Would you like to go to jail?

Not very well.

Well, then, stop hanging

around with hack and his gang

or stop hanging around with me.

Which will it be?

I'll stick with you, Jimmy.

Attaboy! I'll be

right with you.

Hey, al.

Hey, al!

What's the matter?

Getting independent?

So you're not interested in

quick and easy dough, huh?

Listen. The job's all

set, if you want a cut.


I want you to stop

propositioning Albert.

Oh, you do, huh?

Yeah, I do, huh.

And what he does

is your business?

I'm making it my business.

I'm not going to let you get him

into trouble, so lay off. Understand?

Why don't you take

a long walk, flunky?


Stay out of this!

Jimmy, can I come in now?

Yes, Albert!

Uh! Here come the cops!
