Don't let Haley see you.

Ah, Haley can kiss my hand

if he don't like it.

How are you, Davenport?

You stop calling me that. Honest to

goodness, you getting something fierce.

Hog-wild, baby, no fooling.

Scramble three and a cup of jamocha.

Scramble three in a hurry. It's Bill White.

Bread or toast? Or maybe you'd like a bun.

No, had one last night.

I bet you did, you devil.

Say, who was your bun with?

You got me jealous and everything.

Seventeen, 18, 19

Step on them eggs, gal

When I go, I gotta go fast

Shoot three and take up the brakes


Coming right up.

Say, listen, you didn't tell me

who you was out with, smarty.

She wouldn't have been no nice girl,

drinking and all that.

Says which? You're ahead of me, babe.

A way ahead.

Oh, you know what I mean.

Pick it up.

Thirty-one, 32, 33...


You got more nerve, honestly.

How do you get away with it?


You know it's against the rules

to leave the cab when the train's going.

Somebody's been stringing you.

Haley thinks it's good exercise for us guys.

Baloney. You do it every time you pass.

Oh, well, darling, I'd break every rule

in the world for you, Tootsie.

Give us a little butter,

and leave it off the check.

I bet you say that

to every dame you meet, don't you?

Forty-five, 46, 47...

I know darn well you do.

Lookit, you're a nice kid.

why don't you cut out the fly-by-night stuff

and settle down?

Because I can't seem to get

all my women together in one place.


Hey, you're a dime short.

Have a little chew on me, baby.


What's up?

MAN 1:
Darned if I know.

What's up?

MAN 2:
Hot box on 912.

Oh, yeah?


Hey. How'd you like to go

for a chicken dinner tonight?

Boy, now you're talking pretty. where?

Out to my shack.

It's our second anniversary,

and Lily's fixed up a swell feed.

It's too far out just for dinner.

If it included a couple of bottles of booze,

everything would be okay, huh?

Boy, that ain't a bad idea.


It wouldn't be a bad idea

if you'd spend Sunday there...

...and get yourself a good night's sleep

and some fresh air.

Too quiet out of town.

Yeah, I guess it is.

You'd rather hang

around Fishback's Dance Hall...

...with that dizzy dame, Marie,

and the rest of them popeyed hash slingers.

Hey, listen,

don't be panning my lady friend.

well, keep it up

and you'll wind up behind the eight ball.

And what'll I be doing? working hard,

getting promoted to superintendent.

I'll end up in the front office as GM

as sure as you're born.

You're also gonna break your arm if you

don't quit patting yourself on the back.

Here, pal, have a little chew on me.

And let's go.

Hi, gang.

well, if it ain't the old kid himself.

Hi, Ed.

Come on down.

I can't.

Don't wanna get the glad rags all dirty.

Come up here and get a breath of fresh air.

Okay, boy, coming up.

How are you, Ed? when did you get back?

Now, on 912.

Did you get much rest?

Did I?

Never slept a wink

all the while I was gone.

Going to the fight tonight? Nelson's gonna

kick the pants off that ape from Memphis.


what a fighter that guy is.

He's got a left like nobody in the world.

He shoots that left first straight, okay?

And he jabs with his right.


Left again, right again.


And keep that right hand high.

Yeah, right cross.

what an infighter. what an infighter.

Starts slow.

And one, two, three, four, five, see?

Keeps aiming right for the chest, you know?

Then he brings it up, shoots it left,

brings it right down. Finished.

Oh, boy, I'm going

if I can get rid of Marie.
