Mr. Bunion: Who is that, staring at me? It must be an old friend, or thinks he is. I can't place him. He seems to know me.
/
Mr. Bunion: It's a wonder they wouldn't speak to me. I'll get they are two crooks and are spotting me out for a "come on." There comes--
/
Mr. Bunion: --another one. I believe they are detectives and have got me sized up for a crook. Huh, they are--
/
Mr. Bunion: snap-shotting me! I'm going to sneak away. They'll try to arrest me if I don't.
/
Man: Would you object to my boldness in begging an interview with you? I represent the press--
Mr. Bunion: Interview with me? Why certainly! What do you want?
/
Man: How'd you enjoy yourself while abroad, and did you inquire into the financial situation in Europe?
Mr. Bunion: Europe! Abroad! I've never been abroad farther than Squeedonk. No. I'm not much on finance.
/
Man: Oh! Ah! Eh! Ah, are you not, ah, isn't this John D. Rockefeller I am addressing?
Mr. Bunion: It is certainly not. I am no kin of anyone with money. We are all poor.
/
Mr. Bunion: Rockefeller! Me looking into the financial situation. Huh! That's the first time I've even been suspected of having anything. Well, that's something, anyway.

Notes

Mr. Bunion's comment on never having travelled is curious since earlier episodes have him at Niagra Falls, the Washington Monument, the Grand Canyon and Italy.
