Superman 3


Next, please.

Come on, come on.



Gus Gorman.

Ah, yes. August Gorman.

Have you looked for work this week?

- Yes.

- What kind?

- Kitchen technician.

- Dishwasher. Any luck?

No, but...

According to our records,

you have been unemployed for 36 weeks.

No, it's 35.

Not counting this week.

You secured employment in June as a

messenger and were discharged after... day for...

- No, they said I lost it.

I did not lose it!

It was stolen by a pickpocket.

A television set?

It was a teeny tiny, teeny weensy

Japanese television set.

The other employment you found was

in a fast-food joint, which lasted...

...28 minutes?

That's some kind of record.

Talk about fast.

Those people are crazy. They expect

you to learn that stuff in one day.

"Hold the lettuce. Hold the ketchup.

Can I have some sauce, please?"

- Mr. Gorman...

- "Two buns. No buns. Some cheese."

Mr. Gorman, the city of Metropolis

is generous to a fault but...

- I'm not the fault!

- 36 weeks of chronic unemployment.

of hard-working citizens.

- You know what you are?

- Don't call me a bum, I'm not a bum!

You are, I was about to say,

no longer eligible.

- Well, look...

- Next.

What about this week?

I need this week!


You mean, that's it?

"Finished," like "over"?


"Next" as in "bye."



Excuse me, brother,

can I have a light?

- How you doing, Alex?

- Hi, Jimmy.

Excuse me.

Say thank you.

Way to go, Superman!

Your drink is on its way.


Excuse me...

...but what if you want to program two

bilateral coordinates at once?

You can't do that. It's impossible.

- But if you can't...

- Oh, no.

Computer technology is very advanced,

young lady, but it can't do that.

But if you think we can't

do it that way...

Good Lord.

How did you do that?

I don't know. I just did it.

- Who's this?

- That's him, Ross Webster.

They presented him with

the Humanitarian of the Year award.

He is good-looking.

Because I gave him f.2 at a 50th.

One thing I don't understand...

...the point of the story Lois wrote

is how Ross got this great honor...

...and you bring me one picture of him

and 15 pictures of her.

- Who is she?

- Lorelei Ambrosia. She's Webster's...

She's just Webster's.

Let's leave it at that.

- Who's this other woman?

- His sister, Vera Webster.

- Picture looks fuzzy.

- What?

The picture's fine, Chief.

She looks like that in real life.

- She's VP of WEBSCOE Industries.

- I really don't understand you.

A boring banquet and you bring me

Yet Superman saves a man from

drowning on Third Avenue...

...while you just stand there and

you don't bring me one picture!

Chief, I didn't have

my camera with me.

A photographer eats with his camera.

A photographer sleeps with his camera.

- I'm glad I'm a writer.

- Mr. White, please.

It's time for you to draw this month's

winning JINGO number.

Prize is an all-expenses trip

to South America.

- Why the idiot in circulation...

- Good morning.

- Hi, Clark.

- Hi, Lois. Morning, Jimmy.

You've got mustard on your lapel.

Mr. White, I hate to interrupt...

I'm busy.

I got a paper to get out here.

It'll never replace

the printing press.

- What's the number, Mr. White?

- 53.

- Mr. White...

- 53!

- Mr. White...

- You need to pull three more numbers.

I promised I'd call them back today.

What do you think?

- Well, I don't know, Kent...

- I think it'd make a terrific story.

What's a terrific story?

Kent's been invited

to his high school reunion.

- Say.

- Yeah.

Could we have the next number?

It's practically an American ritual.
