Shack Out on 101

Oh, you, what a-

Don't you-

I got a good mind to drop these

dishes. You got a good mind?

It's 6:
00 already, and the tomato's

still out there paradin' for the seagulls.

Puttin' dishes away

is her job.

Ain't it enough that I do

the cookin' and the cleanin'?

Every time I talk about

the tomato, you get busy.

The tomato's got a name!

Kotty! Everybody's got a name.

Yeah? Then how come you call me

Slob when my name's really Leo?

Because you look

like a slob.

Even when you're clean,

you look dirty.

That, to me, is not a Leo.

That is a slob.

Gee. Oh, that's funny.

Yeah, funny.


You're laughing me

into bankruptcy.

Why did you do it? Look

what he did! He's crazy!

You're not gonna get away with

it. You're gonna get me a new one!

I'm gonna get you nothin'!

All right. Lay off!

You do that again,

and I'll whack you good.

You raise a hand to her, I'll make

you eat it. I'd like to see that.

I was only havin' fun.

So am I!

I'm gonna

teach you a lesson.

Next time I'm in San Diego,

I'm goin' into the best store.

And I'm gonna get

the best petticoat.

And you're gonna pay for

it. You got a fat chance.

You wanna bet? I'll let

you in on a little secret.

I'm gonna take it out of your

salary. How do you like that?

I'll go to the labor

board. Well, I'm for that!

And when you're there, ask

'em to get you a new job!

Well, it's easy to see who you got eyes

for, huh? Too bad I wasn't born a tomato.

Too bad you were born,


Hi, George.

Here, catch.

Oh, is this the one

about the seashells?

You'll find it interesting. Book

better have a lot of pictures in it.

I can read as good as you.

You can't do nothin' good.



What brought on this chain

reaction? Kotty's petticoat.

Look at what

Slob did to it.

What'd you do this for?

I don't know.

I- I just felt like it.

That's a stupid answer.

Figures. It's comin' from a

stupid place. Oh, you shut up!

What's everybody making such a big thing

for? You'd think the tomato was a queen.

As far as you're concerned,

she is.

You're looking for trouble,

I can give it to you.

Anything you start with Kotty,

you're gonna have to finish with me.

Now you go back

to your greasy griddle.

Well, I hope you're happy,

you troublemaker, you.

There's only one thing could make me

happy. I'll outlive you two to one.

Never mind the odds.

Buy her a new petticoat.

And behave yourself.

Who is it?

What do you want?

Oh, Sam, I thought it was-

Come on in.

How's my girl? Fine. Don't I look it?

You look just great. Slob's

gonna buy you a new petticoat.

If I told you what

he did to me on the beach-

I heard all about it out there.

No sense going through it again.

Slob's got an eight-cylinder

body and a two-cylinder mind.

You gotta consider the source. Good.

He's not gonna

bother you anymore.

Now let's talk about something

worthwhile. I'm all for that.

I think I know the first

two chapters by heart.

Well, you're really serious about

taking this civil service exam.

I don't want to be a

waitress all my life.

I want you

to be proud of me.

I am, and you don't have to be

anything but exactly what you are.

Just you wait until

I pass that examination.

Instead of coming to see me

in this broken-down beanery,

you'll-you'll walk into a great

big beautiful government building,

and I'll be sitting

behind a big desk doing-

Doing something important? Uh-huh.

Something important.

You know, the longer I know

you, the more you amaze me.

Will you tell me something?

Anything, Sam.


What are the first Ten Amendments

to the Constitution called?
