Transcription

Mr. Bunion: Well! I'll sit here while and rest. I am tired, fatigued and exhausted! Hum! Those are three common words! Used every day by thousands.
/
Mrs. Cruke: Oh! Mister Bunion! Do not mention that you saw me here, eh! Please don't!--
Mr. Bunion: Why, Mrs. Cruke! Why do you ask me? Why, what is the,.Ah!__
/
Mrs. Cruke: I'll tell you! Mr. Cruke and I are not mated, never will be! He's good to me, but I don't love him, I can not.__
Mr. Bunion: He is not your affinity! You were not born for each other!
/
Mrs. Cruke: I know I am not treating my husband in the way I should--
Mr. Bunion: No, I presume so! Well. I'll sneak! I don't want to be witness--
/
Mr. Bunion: Hello! Mr. Sneek! How is Mrs. Sneek! I heard she was ill!
Mr. Sneek: Um, yes! I , ah, don't tell anyone you saw me here, see? I am going to do something not exactly--
/
Mr. Bunion: I hope you are not up to some devilment Mister Sneek. Um, Ah--
Mr. Sneek: I'll tell you the truth, Bunion. Do you know what affinity means. One's affinity? My wife is not my affinity. She's a good woman, but--
/
Mr. Bunion: Ah! They've each got their affinity! Both of them married, unhappily married. So they claim. Well, I don't believe it.
/
Mr. Bunion: I believe they shun contentment and court trouble! I'll stick to old Dull Care for mine! um! Yum! Yum! This my affinity! Yum! Yum!
