Robbed! Cleaned out!

Nine thousand nine hundred

and sixty-seven dollars.

Precisely as I told you

over the telephone.

And that girl did it. Marion Holland!

That's the girl. Marion Holland!

- Can you describe her, Mr Strutt?

- Certainly I can.

Five feet five.

A hundred and ten pounds.

Size eight dress.

Blue eyes. Black, wavy hair.

Even features. Good teeth.

- (Chuckling)

- What's so damn funny?

There's been a grand larceny

committed on these premises!

Yes, sir. You were saying,

ah, black hair,

wavy, even features, good teeth.

- She was in your employ 4 months?

- Mmm.

What were her references, sir?

Well, as a matter of fact -

Yes, uh,

she had references, I'm sure.

Oh, Mr Strutt, don't you remember?

She didn't have any references at all.

Well, she worked the

copying and adding machines.

No confidential duties.

(Strutt) Mr Rutland.

I didn't know you were in town.

Just had a robbery. Almost $10,000.

So I gathered. By a pretty girl

with no references.

You remember her. I pointed her out to

you last time you were here.

You said something about how I was

improving the looks of the place.

Oh, that one!

The brunette with the legs.

Excuse me. Mr Rutland's a client.

I don't think you've got time

to discuss business today, Mr Strutt,

what with your crime wave

on your hands.

Oh, no, no. Always time for

Rutland business. You know that.

How are things in Philadelphia?

The little witch! I'll have her

put away for 20 years!

I knew she was too good to be true.

Always so eager to work

overtime, never made a mistake.

Always pulling her skirt

down over her knees

as though they were

a national treasure.

She seemed so nice, so efficient.

- So -

- Resourceful?

Hello, Mrs Maitland.

Oh, so nice to have you back,

Miss Edgar.

- We put you in your same room.

- Thank you, Mrs Maitland.

Can someone drive me over

to Garrod's right away?

- Of course. Anytime you're ready.

- Soon as I change.

How do, Miss Edgar?

Good to have you back.

Hello, Mr Garrod.

Ah, there's my darling!

(Garrod) That big spoiled baby

of yours knew something was up.

Tried to bite me twice

already this morning.

Forio, if you want

to bite somebody, bite me.

Thanks.

(Girls) # Mother, Mother, I am ill.

# Send for the doctor over the hill.

# Call for the doctor.

Call for the nurse.

# Call for the lady

with the alligator purse.

# Mumps said the doctor.

Measles said the nurse.

# Nothing said the lady

with the alligator purse. #

Thank you.

(Girls) One, two, three,

four, five, six -

Oh, it's you. Where's my mother?

She's makin' a pecan pie... for me!

That figures.

(Woman) Who is it, Jessie?

- Hello, Mama.

- Well, I just swan. Marnie!

If you're not the very limit.

I can't take in the way you jump

all over the place like you do.

(Mama) Boston, Massachusetts.

Elizabeth, New Jersey.

I brought you

some chrysanthemums.

Those gladiolas are brand fresh.

Miss Cotton brought 'em last night.

I never could stand gladiolas.

I ' ll get rid of these.

For land's sake - Marnie,

now watch the dripping.

Here, Jessica, why don't you

take these home to your mother?

She don't get home from work till 6::00.

I'm supposed to stay here till 6::00.

Take them to the kitchen then.

Just get rid of them.

Take 'em to the kitchen

before they drip all over.

We could stand gladiolas!

I send you plenty of money.
