Mr. Bunion: I'll have to crawl over into the net year, I guess, if I want to exist!

Mr. Bunion: I hope nineteen hundred and nine will be a little brighter for me!
/
Mr. Bunion: Resolved that I leave that old valise right where it is laying! Yep! I'll leave it!

Mr. Bunion: On this side of the wall I shall live easier! I'll consign the old thing to the old year and begin to live once more!
/
1908: What did that old fellow do? Go over into the next year leaving this old valise with me?
