“We want four copies, honey,” says Marie.

Back at the Stephenson home, Al is mixing a bromoseltzer while Millie talks to him.

“Mr Milton certainly acted enthusiastic about your speech,” says Millie.

“Yeah, sure. That’s how he acted, the old hypocrite,” replies Al.

“Suppose he’ll fire you in the morning?” asks Millie.

“No, he’ll never do anything impetuous,” says Al. “He’ll back me up, till the next time I give a loan to some little guy. Then I’ll have to fight it out again.”

There’s a knock at the bedroom door.

“Yes?” says Millie.

“It’s me, Peggy,” says Peggy.

“Oh, come in, darling,” says Millie. “Did you have a good time?”

“Not very,” replies Peggy.

“Ah, what’s all this? Children’s Hour?” says Al. He belches. “I beg your pardon.”

“Well? What’s she like?” asks Millie.

“I’m glad I went out with them,” says Peggy. “Even though it was a disagreeable experience.”

“It took guts, honey,” says Al.
