Hi, Leo.

Say, kid, if these flowers ain't | any fresher than they were yesterday,

we're gonna switch, see? Okay.


Hey, Blainey. | Put these on ice.

Here you are, kid.

Hiya, Leo.

What time is it? | Quarter after three.

What's new? We had a | big night last night.

What's new about that?

Well, we took in plenty | of dough!

Are you readin' where Walker | knocked out Red Nolan in the fourth?

Yeah. Got a great left hand, that kid.

When he lands, | they can all go home.

What's that? From your | shirtmaker. Fifteen bucks apiece!

Why, that dumb cluck!

Look at the size of | those initials!

Why, they're great. I told | 'im to make 'em smaller.

And the last time they | wasn't big enough. I know.

But I found out | the big ones were bad taste.

Oh, so they made a mistake | for fifteen bucks apiece, huh?

Well, don't get sarcastic. | They're silk, ain't they?

Well, this ain't tin. | Only cost me a buck apiece.

I call that silk. Why, ya mug, | don't ya know ya got stung?

Boy, ya wanna fight, do you? I love it!

Gee, ya ain't forgot | a thing, have ya, kid?

That's for nothin'. | Now, start somethin'.

Now cut it out,Joe, cut | it out, will ya? All right.

You're feelin' pretty good, | ain't ya?

Yeah, I feel great | after that workout.

I wonder if she'll | be here tonight?

Who, Iris? Sure.

No, not Iris. | The lady.

The lady? Yeah, the | lady that sits alone.

Why, ya don't | even know her!

That's it. She's got me guessing. | Just the way she sits there.

Well, how does | she sit there?

The way she sits, | she stands out.

Oh, I get it. She's one of those | standin' and sittin' ladies.


Well, wait a minute. | I'll ask him.

Say, McFadden wants the | Beach Room tonight. Who?

Tim McFadden, the promoter. No.

Well, McFadden'll spend a | couple of grand. Can't have it.

Buy a lot of shirts.

I said he can't have it.

He can't have it. | Two thousand bucks.

Good-bye, glad | to have met you.

Money means everything | to you, don't it?

Well, what are you | in the racket for?

I don't know.

Say, what do you think I could | get for this joint if I sold it?

Listen,Joe. What's gettin' into you?

I can't stand it no more. | I'm sick of the smell of booze.

I'm sick of noise, of being | a pal to a lot of drunks.

I'm not getting anyplace! | What are you talkin' about?

Ain't you the owner of the | ''swellest'' speak in New York?

How long ago was it when you was a | third-rate pug, takin' it on the chin?

You don't call that travelin'?

No. I'm only wearin' | a tuxedo instead of tights.

I'd give the joint away.

See who that is, | will you?

Oh. Did he cut off | the fat?

Okay, | put it over there.

Come on,Joe. | Your breakfast's getting cold.

Oh, how do you do, | Miss Dawn? Hello,Jimmie.

Well, good afternoon, | bright eyes. Had your bath?

Hello, Iris.

Well, smile, | it's me.

How are ya?

What's the idea of | the bad mood?

Did you | dream of me?

What are you so cheerful | about? Three cocktails, dearie.

You're drinkin' too much. | Oh, yeah?

What'd you want to do, | end up just bein' a souse?

Hmph. Where do you | lecture tomorrow night?

You think you're gonna keep that | face all your life. Uh-huh, I hope so.

You know what you're gonna | look like in ten years?

You'll still love me, | won't ya,Joe?

What for, your brains?

Now, don't you worry | about my brains.

Well, that's a help.

Say, I can take care | of myself, see?

Sure you can.

Joe, what's the matter? Nothin'.

Yes, there is. I feel like | I'm losin' out in some way.


Beat it, dear, | I gotta get dressed.

What of it? You heard me. I gotta dress.
