  • Welch: You're a nice girl and you're about to make the biggest mistake of your life.

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: That's my business.

    Larry Scott: Sure it is, and don't let him tell you any different!

  • Eddie Ellison: Well, if it isn't my old pal Welch, big as life and twice as natural.

    Larry Scott: He's still got it in for you! He's been giving the one-two the whole way up here, trying to promote himself.

    Welch: I was just trying to give Kay here a little friendly advice. I know a lot more about crooks than she does.

    Larry Scott: Why, you!

    [he tries to punch Welch, but Larry stops him]

    Larry Scott: If you slug him, you'll get in trouble. You're on your way out. Keep going. I'm on my way in. I got nothing to lose.

    [he punches Welch]

  • Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Did you tell her about her present?

    Eddie Ellison: Who, me? Gee, won't she look cute in that?

    Jane Scott: Oh, it's darling.

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: It cost an awful lot.

    Eddie Ellison: It's for Shirley, isn't it? She only has a birthday once a year.

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Every day is her birthday with you.

    Eddie Ellison: Well, why shouldn't it be? Say, here's another littl gadget I bought for Shirley.

    Larry Scott: What is it?

    Eddie Ellison: Take a look.

    [He hands Larry a small telescope. When Larry looks into it, it leaves a black ring around his eye]

    Larry Scott: I don't see anything.

    Eddie Ellison: No, but we do!

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Oh, Eddie, you and your tricks. You're not going to give that to the baby. You're making her as bad as you are.

  • Larry Scott: Top of the morning to you.

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: And the heat of the evening to you.

  • Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Sit down and have some coffee.

    Larry Scott: Aren't you going to wait for Eddie?

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: I should wait and eat a cold breakfast? Not for any husband. Sometimes I get so mad I could give him poison.

    Eddie Ellison: And sometimes I get so mad I could take it. What do you know about that?

    Larry Scott: To hear you two in the morning, you'd think you were ready to jump at each other's throats.

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: In the morning? What about the rest of the day?

    Larry Scott: Well, I just hope Jane and me get along as well as you two.

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Eddie, Larry and Jane got engaged last night!

    Eddie Ellison: Well, I don't see why a fine girl like Jane would want to marry a mug like you.

  • Larry Scott: Sometimes I wonder if going straight really pays.

    Eddie Ellison: Hey, cut out that kind of talk, will you?

    Larry Scott: But what will Jane think?

    Eddie Ellison: She's a hundred percent for you. She wouldn't think anything bad about you any more than Kay would me. We won't tell them anything tonight, though.

    Larry Scott: Why not?

    Eddie Ellison: I don't want anything to spoil Shirley's birthday party!

  • Eddie Ellison: Well, if it isn't my old pal, Welch. As big as life and twice as natural.

    Larry Scott: He's no pal of yours, fella. He's still got it in for you.

    Eddie Ellison: What do you mean?

    Larry Scott: He's been throwing hooks into you all the way up on the train. Trying to promote himself.

    Welch: Yeah. I was just trying to give her a little friendly advice, that's all. I happen to know a lot more about crooks than she does.

    Eddie Ellison: Why, you -

    [moves as if to hit Welch]

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: [restraining him] Eddie, Eddie!

    Larry Scott: If you sock him, you'll get into trouble. You're on the way out. Keep going. I'm on the way in, so I've got nothing to lose.

    [punches Welch in the nose]

    Eddie Ellison: Thanks, fella. I'll be seeing you when you get out.

    Larry Scott: Good luck. I wish I could be your best man.

  • Larry Scott: Say, how 'bout going to the movies with us tonight?

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Oh, thanks, but we can't leave Shirley.

    Larry Scott: They're showing 10,000 years in Sing-Sing at the Cameo.

    Eddie Ellison: Gee, what a long stretch!

    Jane Scott: They say it's awful funny.

    Eddie Ellison: Not for my dough.

    Larry Scott: Well, come on, Jane. We'll be late.

    Eddie Ellison: Say, Larry, what's your hurry? If you miss three or four years, it don't make any difference.

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Have a good time.

    Larry Scott: Thanks. Sorry you won't come with us. So long.

    Kay 'Funny Face' EllisonEddie EllisonJane Scott: Good-bye.

    Eddie Ellison: Oh. Hey, Larry.

    Larry Scott: Yeah?

    Eddie Ellison: We've got to be on the job early in the morning. Stop by for me, and we'll dunk a couple of doughnuts.

    Larry Scott: Right.

    Eddie Ellison: And say, let me know what the guy did to get 10,000 years.

  • Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: What's happened?

    Eddie Ellison: Well, the breadwinners have stopped winning.

    Larry Scott: Yeah, looks like we're in for a little vacation.

    Jane Scott: You mean you were discharged.

    Eddie Ellison: Well, not exactly. We were canned.

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: But they can't let you off for nothing.

    Eddie Ellison: No. I know they can't. But they did. Welch saw to that.

    Jane Scott: Who's Welch?

    Larry Scott: Well, he's an old friend of ours.

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Will you excuse us for a minute? I want to talk to Eddie alone.

    [Eddie and Kay go into the next room]

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Now listen, Eddie. When we were married we said we'd go 50-50 on everything, didn't we?

    Eddie Ellison: Uh-huh.

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Well, that meant joy and trouble, too. You always let me in on the joy, now. Why not the trouble?

    Eddie Ellison: There's nothing more to tell.

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Eddie, look at me. Did Larry have anything to do with this?

    Eddie Ellison: No.

    Kay 'Funny Face' Ellison: Well, then. We haven't a thing to worry about.

  • Welch: [Welch is searching Eddie's apartment for a stolen pearl necklace] What kind of a sap do you think I am?

    Eddie Ellison: I don't know. What kind of a sap are you?

    Welch: Now, let's see. If I was in your spot, I wonder where I'd hide that necklace.

    Eddie Ellison: Let me see. Maybe you'd swallow it.

    Larry Scott: I read in Popular Mechanics where Zulus hide jewels by sewing them under their skin.

    Eddie Ellison: That'd be all right if we were Zulus.
