Mornin', friend

We recommend blue plate number two

Our food is the best

in the whole southwest

What can I do for you

I'll take hotcakes

and a glass of beer.

Mornin', friend

We recommend blue plate number two

Our food is the best

in the whole southwest

What can I do for you

I'll have a large glass of tomato juice

and a couple of aspirin.

Mornin', friend

We recommend blue plate number two

Our food is the best

in the whole southwest

What can I do for you

I'll have a double order of you.

- On toast.

- On white or whole wheat?

Barbara! Barbara!

Look, he's here! Come on!

- Have you got it, Joe? Have you got it?

- Now, girls, stop it.

- It's due here today!

- Stop jumping! Stop jumping!

- Oh, come on, Joe. Where is it?

- I'm not sure.

- I'm not sure now.

- We'll help you!

- Is it in there? Is it in there?

- Now, girls!

If the letter's here, it's here.

Your looking won't put it here.

- Please hurry, Joe.

- It'd be addressed to one of you sisters?

- No, probably to Aunt Susan.

- Miss Susan Latimer.

- Oh, please, please, please, please.

- Here. Here it is.

Bigelow, Bigelow, Bigelow and Bigelow!

- Yippee!

- Whoopee!

Susan! Look! It's here!

It's come!

- Joe just brought it.

- Open it! Open it!

- Oh!

- Come on, hurry, Susan.

All right. All right. Don't hurry me.

Don't get me excited.

Um, "According to the final will...

"whereas the state of lowa therewith,

therefore and whereas-"

Oh, get to the point quick, Susan.

How much is our legacy?

All right. Here it is.

"And your share of the estate...

"to be divided equally with your nieces,

Kay and Barbara Latimer is-"

Well, what is it?

$55,000! Oh!

- 55,000!

- I knew it!

- I knew it! I knew it'd be that much!

- Yes! Yes!

Well, girls, that's the end of that!

- How much is a third of 55?

- A third of-

Five, uh-

Let's see what it looks like.


- What?

- 4,000?

Oh, let me see it.

"Twelve percent federal tax, six percent

state tax, three percent probate tax...

"$2,500 administrators fees...

"4,800 to lawyers and therefore,

after these deductions...

the balance is $4,287.96."

Well, girls-

But, Aunt Sue, are you forgetting?

No, Kay. I'm afraid that idea wouldn't work.

We might even lose the 4,000.

But we agreed, didn't we, that if it was less

than 10,000, it was the only thing we could do?

Now, if we put it out in postal savings at three

percent with the good old U.S.A. behind it-

Oh, no, Susan.

We can't get rich that way.

Your idea is such an awful chance, Kay.

l-lt is sort of crazy.

Crazy? What's crazy about

marrying a millionaire?

That Southern Texas Gas and Power Corporation

is a mighty nice, safe investment.

Oh, please, Susan. Barbara.

- You still want to

go through with it, don't you?

Well, I don't know. I just don't think

you can marry a man without loving him.

But how long does love last?

Besides, it's just as easy to fall

in love with a millionaire...

as it is with a truck driver.

Truck driver, yes!

There is a 50 truck driver outside

waiting for you for service.

- You-You are all three-

- Quitting!

That's what we're all three doing, Mr. Simon

Legree. We're resigning! Walking out on you!

- We're going to Miami!

- Miami?

That's right, Miami.

Where rich men are as plentiful as grapefruit

and millionaires hang from every palm tree!

- Come on!

- And so long!


Put 'em in the bedroom.


Well, is this quite satisfactory,

Miss Latimer?

Why, yes, Miss Sears,

quite satisfactory.

I believe all this

will work out very nicely.

Yeah, this is some joint!

Susan, will you take care
