John, where's your host?
First door to the right.
- Well, he had it coming to him.
Well, I didn't say anything.
I only said your last book was stellar,
first time you wrote it.
But it was kind of dull the last three times.
- Well, I can get it published, at any rate.
- Stop it, you two.
You're just green with envy, Gilly,
Well, all I know is what everybody says.
You're through, and you don't know it.
Do you want the other one black, too?
Hey, call off your pet author, Heywood.
He's mutilating me.
Well, what's the trouble, Gilly?
Hello, Dora, Tony.
Nothing's the trouble. Here, you.
Better let Dora put a beefsteak
on that eye.
Well, can't a man even have
one opinion in this land of liberty?
Well, you can get your book...
This is the only place you can
hear yourself talk. Have a seat.
- Well, here.
Don't tell me you read that so soon.
Well, you seemed in a hurry
for the advance.
Listen, I owe so much that
Mind if I ask you for a thousand?
Five-hundred would just about
pay the liquor bills.
You haven't asked me
what I think of the book.
I don't wanna hear it. I know it's tripe.
I can't accept your book, Tony.
It's not up to our stuff.
Well, you're entitled to your opinion,
It's a good thing for me you're not
the only publisher in the business.
when your first book was a success.
I told you what this life would do to you.
- Why, I've seen it happen to a lot of you...
- Seen what happen?
- I see. You think I'm through, too.
- I didn't say that.
- Well, why don't you? You want to.
I've published your books, Tony,
for five years,
when no one else would've touched them.
Don't do me any more favors.
I'll dispose of this myself.
If I were you, I'd get out of town and get
some of the liquor out of my system.
- Take a look at yourself.
- Lf I were you, I'd mind my own business.
- Remember that.
- This is a good book.
I said, when you write a good book,
I'll publish it.
What was the matter with Leland?
He went out like a streak.
- We just had a little argument.
- Tony, you didn't.
to rewrite it and I didn't like it, that's all.
- But you got the advance?
- I'll get it. It may take a little time, but...
- Wouldn't he give you an advance now?
- I couldn't let him know I needed it.
- I don't see why not. He's your publisher.
- I'll do it over in a few weeks.
But, Tony, we've got to have some money.
We can't go on like this.
Well, we'll go back to the old homestead
Won't have to pay any rent there.
Now, Tony, don't bring that up again.
I won't go to that awful place.
We may have to.
Say, Mr. Barrett.
You know, it don't seem natural,
me calling you mister,
recollecting the names I used to call you
when I chased you out the depot.
- Well, call me what you did then.
- Couldn't do that now.
They tell me you're a pretty big writer.
If I did, I wouldn't be coming back here.
Tobacco, in Connecticut?
Sure, that's tobacco. That's all tobacco.
- I thought that was cabbage.
- Cabbage? Why, that's tobacco!
- They're women, aren't they?
