Man: It's close by. Yes, I'll show you and carry your valise for a dime, Mister Bunion.

Mr. Bunion: Carry my valise for a dime? Well you bet you can, at any price, go ahead!
Man: All Right, sir. I'll carry it.

Mr. Bunion: Ha! Ha! He can have the blame thing. I don't want it!
Man: Just follow me. I'll take you to the Ave.
