Transcription

[This Way to All Trains] Mr. Bunion: By George! I've only got three minutes to catch that 4:20 Restville train. I've got to hustle if I want to get it.
/
[RESTVILLE On the Smiling Mountains is Reached by the J.O.N.A.H R.R.] Mr. Bunion: Check this quick! My trains waiting. I go to Restville, eh? Yes Hurry! I don't want to miss it. [Baggage Room]
/
Mr. Bunion: Gosh! There goes my valise kersmash. It's busted into a million pieces. Oh, Well!
/
Mr. Bunion: Well, I'll never bother this rail road about my valise. They need not worry, nope.
/
Mr. Bunion: Isn't - Oh! Isn't it nice and cool on these mountains? This beats all the places I have ever visited. Aw, say!
/
Mr. Bunion: This is simply the acme of real relaxation. I think I'll just have to resign myself to this kind of a life forever.
/
Mr. Bunion: Well, I've got to go home tomorrow and I shall look at life, from now on, differently. Life is so pleasant after all, if we look at it in the right way, it's fine, it's elegant. Life is worth living.
/
Mr. Bunion: What? On arriving home I find this, "Dear Mr. Bunion. Through an unavoidable accident, our baggageman smashed your valise. We hope the new one which we herewith deliver to your address will adjust all further inconvenience. Yours- J.O.N.A.H. R.R" [For Mr. Bunion, Rocky Road]
