Rita, what was that

you were saying about Al?

When that guy

takes you to dinner,

first thing you know,

you're shadow-boxing.

Oh, so he's no shadow.

He says, " Listen, baby, if you're a good

girl, I'll put you in a Broadway show. "

I suppose he thinks

that's a new angle.

Millie, the guy writes me a letter

and says he wants to marry me,

'cause two can live as cheaply as

one, so long as one of us is working.

Well, what's

the matter with that?

Nothing. Only I'm

the one that's working.

So I said, " Listen, wise guy. I don't

like anybody driving with one hand. "

So the schmo takes his

other hand, off the wheel

and we crash into a tree.

I wonder why my girdle's

getting so small.

Dearie, maybe you're

crowding too much into it.

My dogs are killing me.

Mine are, too.

I got a date

with a cab driver.

Yeah?

Where are you going?

Who's going?

We're parking.

There's no business

like show business.

Ah, shut up.

Would you help me, honey?

Well, look who's here.

The star herself.

The queen of the quivers.

Hi, Bubbles.

Slumming, Bubbles?

It's so seldom we're

honoured by a visit from the star.

Ain't you off

the reservation, dearie?

Maybe she's getting

material for a book.

Oh, can she write?

Turn blue!

Hi, Peg.

Hello, Bubbles.

Want to go on a date?

Oh, he's a swell guy.

Crazy to meet you.

Oh, when are you going to stop being

tied to your old lady's apron strings?

Why don't you let the kid

go out and have some fun,

before her hair turns

as grey as yours.

I don't mind her going out, Bubbles,

but not with your particular

kind of friends.

Course, if she wants to

go, it's all right with me,

but I don't think she wants to go.

Okay, Mother.

I'll just get one of

the others to go along.

Now, which one of you ladies

wants to go on a blind date?

Wait a minute. Wait a minute!

I'm going to make some coffee.

Would you like some?

No, thanks.

How about some crackers and milk?

I don't think so.

What's the matter, honey?

When are you going to

let me feel grown up?

Letting you go out with Bubbles LaRue

and her men friends,

will that make you

feel grown up?

No. I don't mean those kind,

but I never go out with anyone.

Do you feel bitter about that?

Not bitter, Mother.

Why should you want to go out on a

blind date with some middle-aged guy

who's probably married,

has a family?

There you go judging people,

criticising them

when you don't even know them.

You always do that, Mother.

Look, darling, I...

I'm sick of the idea of not

being able to go anywhere

or do anything without

the written consent of my mother.

I'm tired of being treated

like a child. I'm going to bed.

If I've got to do one more

show, I'm going to drop dead.

I can't make it.

15 minutes. 15.

Ah, shut up.

So I went out, and that

cab driver forgot to park.

He says, " I'd like

to see your show, baby.

"How about a couple of passes?"
