Transcription

Mr. Bunion: That looks pretty good! I think I'll have to stroll up that road a piece!
[This Road Leads to Success]
/
Mr. Bunion: I hardly know what success means. One can be successful in putting himself on the bum as well as acquiring riches.
/
Mr. Bunion: Ah! Hum! Either prong of the road will be all right. I'll stick to the right! Yep! [To Success] [To Success]
/
Mr. Bunion: Some people become very successful drunkards, successful burglars! I'm a success as a Jonah!
/
[To Success]
/
Mr. Bunion: If medals were awarded to those who have had the worst luck I should be covered with 'em!
/
[To Success] Mr. Bunion: Aw! I am tired of this thing!
/
Mr. Bunion: Now! I'm lost! Huh!! Well, I suppose this is where the come back happens! There's always something turning up with me that is discouraging. There's no forks in the road to ruin, I'll wager!
