Transcription

Mr. Bunion: Oh, shucks!! Huh. I'm so tired, this old valise is getting heavier and heavier every day. I'll sit here and rest while I ache, as well.
/
Man: Ha! You're still here, I see. Why don't you brace up! Jolly yourself up?
Mr. Bunion: Jolly myself up, eh? Brace up, yes!
/
Man: You borrow too much trouble.
Mr. Bunion: If I've borrowed it, I'll gladly return it, sir!
/
Man: Don't borrow trouble! Don't look for it. It's too easy to find. Drink laughing soup and-- Mr. Bunion: Laughing soup? Eh! What is that, sir?
/
Mr. Bunion: I have not borrowed anything that I have not promptly returned --
Man: You worry too much. Let the other fellow worry!
/
Mr. Bunion: Let the other fellow do the worrying? Who is the other fellow? Where is he? Man: Just let the other fellow do the worrying.
/
Mr. Bunion: Am I overlooking something? Is there an other fellow who will worry for me? Where, oh, where is he, who is --
/
Mr. Bunion: --he. I wish I could find him. The other fellow is, I presume, on the ground first. I think I'm the party, I'm doing the worrying for the whole universe.--
