Transcription

Mr. Bunion: If I could only get rid of this old valise, um!
Mr. White: That's easy! Give it to me! I'm going to the North Pole tonight. I'll take it along and freeze it in an iceberg! I'll be here at six and get it. I will lose it for you, Mr. Bunion!
/
Man: I'll call at six for the valise!
Mr. Bunion: Oh! I'll be here with it. Yes! Huh!
Mr. Black: Hello! Mr. Bunion! How are you getting on?
/
Mr. Bunion: Mr. White is going to rid me of this valise!
Mr Black: No! He isn't!! I am! Give it to me! I'm going to the South Pole this evening I'll lose the old thing for you in the ice fields! I'll call at six and get it! You hear?
/
Mr. Black: Remember, I call at six for the valise.
Mr. Bunion: Oh! I'm so glad! I think I'll let him take it! Too many people visit the North Pole! But I must notify Mr. White, yes!
/
Mr. Bunion: Hello! Mr. White, I believe I'll let Mr. Black take the valise with him, tonight, old boy. I'm much obliged to you! Yes, you needn't call at six! Yes! Thanks!
Mr. White [phone]: All right! I am glad you are going to get rid of it! Good Bye!
/
Mr. Bunion: Well! You miserable old box! You contemptible old crate of hard luck. I'm going to get rid of you at last, ain't I?
/
Mr. Bunion: Yes! I'm Mr. Bunion! Boy: You are wanted at the telephone, sir!
/
Mr. Bunion: Yes! Sir? This is--is that you Mr. Black?
Mr. Black [phone]: Yes! Old Man! Say! I'll not be able to see you or call for your valise our boat steams at once! I'll see you next year! I'm very sorry that I can't help you but it can't be helped! Good luck to you!
