Larry! Jimmy!

That's very good. Good.

- How much is it?

- Two dollars.

There's 1.

There's 2.

Thank you.

- It's locked.

- He's in there again.

Pa! What are you doing in there?

Open up this door.

You better not be doing

what I think you're doing.

Hey!

I told you,

I make that for peddling.

Not for you to drink.

Hey, you show some respect.

Larry! Jimmy!

You all get on to the house.

Supper's ready.

Why did you hit him?

- He was drinking my profits.

- You can't be so ornery.

- People'll think you're crazy.

- No.

I'm just trying to make an honest buck.

- Larry.

- I'll call you back, Mama.

Give a big, big hand to Ilanis

from Ottawa, Tennessee.

Thank you, Jimmy.

You know

I don't know if you feel the way

I do right now

but we deliver the finest ladies

in southern Ohio.

Don't you think?

Thank you. And now,

please give a warm, warm welcome

to Kimberly and Melissa.

They're all the way here

from Paris and London, Kentucky.

So how are we doing?

- Bad.

- What do you mean, bad?

- I mean we're broke.

- How can we be broke, Larry?

Well, you know, these giveaways

are killing us. The limousine.

The smorgasbord was a stupid idea.

Then all your buddies are coming here

every night drinking for free.

You don't have to bring

my friends into this.

- Hey, ladies.

- Hey, Larry, we're ready to go.

You put forth some hard work.

Thank you. Thank you.

Ilanis, I'll be by in about an hour,

and I'll bring the Ping-Pong balls.

Leticia, I'll see you in two hours.

Hey, Leticia, I liked the way

you blew that candle out tonight.

There's the secret, there.

If I could just somehow let people

know what great lays these girls are

we'd have something.

Larry, you can't advertise that.

I know you can't, but

Jimmy

Mister, what kind of business is this?

Well, now,

I run the Hustler go-go clubs.

- I'm sure you've heard of them.

- No.

Yeah, well, see,

now that's why I need a newsletter.

I figured we'd run maybe,

eight, 10 pages per issue.

With nothing but nudie pictures?

Yeah, on this nice,

smooth paper like this.

- That's called "slick."

- Slick, yeah.

But I could get in trouble

printing these.

- Why?

- Because there are laws.

You gotta have some sort of text

like Playboy does.

- God will punish the sinner!

- God will punish the sinner!

Thank you all for coming

to my establishment.

And keep in mind, we welcome

Christians in here too. Thank you.

What do you think?

Well, how much did it cost?

Would you forget the money

for one second?

What do you think?

Well, what I think

depends on how much it cost.

Look, there it is,

the first Hustler newsletter.

It's all for the man on the go,

man about town.

Here it is, news service.

Larry, it's a magazine, not a newsletter.

How you gonna pay for that?

Don't interrupt me when I'm talking,

okay?

Let's hear it for Camille.

You were wonderful.

Welcome to the stage, gentlemen

Calamity Jane from Moscow, Texas.

Let's hear it for her.

Who is that?

That's the new girl.

She got the moves, don't she?

She ain't bad.

- She ain't legal either.

- Yes, she is legal. I saw her ID.

Look, you stupid briarhopper,

my dog could get an ID

from my goat.

Hey, listen

when she gets done up there,

send her on up to my office.

What ?

What's your name?

- Jane.

- Jane?

- We have a policy in this club.

- Oh, yeah?

Yeah. Oh, yeah.

Okay, and ?

Trouble is, I have a sneaking

suspicion that you're not of age.

You know, this could cost me

my liquor licence.

I could have to close up shop

and fire a lot of people.

- I'll tell you something.
