Transcription

Man #1: Talk about Dull Care! I'll give you a bunch of bills, if you can collect anything on them you can have it. How's that?
Mr. Bunion: Give 'em to me! I will collect the coin! Of course, they're all honest debts? Give 'em to me.
/
Mr. Bunion: I came to see about Mister Gotstung's bill. Heht has been standing for some time, you know.
Mr. Gotstung: Why, I've paid that!!! Yes! Paid it long ago! That's funny, huh! God tell him to look it up! I've paid it, yes!
/
Butler: Mr. Justout is not in' he's away on business will be gone for a long time.
Mr. Bunion: Why, I just saw his mug at the window a second ago, but he saw me first, I guess!
/
Mr. Bunion: Mr. Gotstung's bill. Yes, I came to see if you can do something toward settling it up. Its been standing a long time.
Banker: Yes! Well, you may leave it here and we'll look it over. Leave it here!
/
Man #2: I know that bill should have been paid long ago. I've overlooked it 'till now. I find myself quite short of money myself. I'm sorry--
Mr. Bunion: I'll come in again later and remind you of it!
/
Mr. Bunion: Ah! Eh! Mr. Swift! Can you do anything toward settling this account--
Mr. Swift: Who me? No! No! No! Not now! I can't stop now! Bring it around some other time! I'm too busy now! No!
/
Man #3: I will not pay that bill! I've said so before! Please do not bother me with it!
Mr. Bunion: Bother you? I'll bother you until [sic] you pay it do you understand? Yes I'll
/
Mr. Bunion: Oh! I don't know! I don't think I'll bother any of them! I'll try some easier way of seeing a livelihood.
