Man: No! No! He's a man anyone can see. I'm his brother. I have a nervous disorder or I'd go with you! But--
/
Mr. Bunion: I have no card, my boy. Just tell him his brother sent me here. It will be all right, wan in, boy!
Boy: I can take you in as far as the door man.
/
Mr. Bunion: I wonder if this brother is dippy or not!
Boy: His bother never comes around here. He is not well!

Mr. Bunion: I just want ed to see him a moment about a valise I have here!
