- Galt in?
- He's in the building someplace.
He'll be right back. May I help you?
Maybe you can help me,
if you know anything I want to know.
I don't know anything
you couldn't find out by asking Mr Galt.
Nice quality, loyalty.
- How long have you been working for him?
- Several weeks.
- What do you know about him?
- I like him.
Keep you busy?
I sharpen pencils, do the typing,
answer the phone,
and mind my own business.
Well, look who's here.
- What are you working on?
- My income tax.
Get to the point, Reeves. What do you want?
Why didn't you let me know
you were moving offices?
Why should I?
to see you didn't get into mischief.
You're an impulsive youth, you know.
Look. I got a fast shuffle out West.
Now all I'm asking is a fair chance
to work up a legitimate business.
I'm playing this by the book,
and I won't even trip over a comma.
I hope not. You got a nice setup.
Good view... and a good-looking secretary.
You'd be smart to keep it clean.
if there's nothing else.
Have dinner with me.
Is this part of the job?
It is tonight.
I'll make a note of it.
(man) Watch the lady hit the ball.
There she comes. It's a foul ball.
All right, she doesn't know her own strength.
You're out, lady!
How about it?
Come on, step up. Who wants
to hit the ball next? Right this way.
Say, that was OK.
- How do you do that after all that chop suey?
- My father was a major-league umpire.
- Well, what else can I beat you at?
- What kind of games do you like to play?
You know, we got some great playgrounds
around 52nd Street.
- Among them your apartment?
- Just a coincidence.
I haven't worked for you long,
but I know when you're pitching a curve,
- No offence. A guy's got to try to score.
Not in my league. "I don't play for score,
I play for keeps," said she with a smile.
Say, you wanna give me some change?
(man) Win something
every time you pull a string.
- Hey. Let's take a look at the competition.
- All right.
You won't like 'em,
Aren't any of these for women?
Hey, now here's a nice secretary.
- Mr Galt?
- Don't worry, I'm not gonna fire you.
Yeah, I know. Guy in a white suit.
About five foot ten, brown hair.
Sports shoes. Ring on his left pinkie.
Don't stare back.
- Why is he following us?
I'll put you in a cab. Go round the block
and park across from our office.
- What then?
- What have you been doing?
- What do you think I've been doing?
You could've been doing a lot of things.
You're stubborn and impulsive
and you think you're tough.
Yeah? Name one.
Sentiment about women, for instance.
You're afraid of emotion.
