Man: Well! Well! Well! My old school mate! Bunion! How are you? I'm so glad--
/
Mr. Bunion: You are looking fine. It's twenty years-- /
Man: Yes, sir! Its twenty-five years ago since we were together. My! What times we used to have! I'm glad to see you again. I've often wondered about your where-abouts--
/
Man: All us boys, if you remember, were hustlers and, I guess, all rich by this time. I am comfortable--
Mr. Bunion: I am glad to hear it, as for myself--
/
Man: You? Ha! Ha! Got wads of it, I'll bet, eh! Bunion! You always were scheming to make money, weren't you?
Mr. Bunion: Ye-Ye-Yes! I am, yet you can bet!
/
Man: Well, here's to continued prosperity! For us both and our friends.
/
Man: Eh! What! I don't, ah, quite-
Mr. Bunion: To tell you the truth this is all I possess in the world. I'm sorry I can't reciprocate--
/
Man: By George! That makes me think! I have an engagement at nine and its now six-thirty!
Mr. Bunion: Yes, sir! This is all I own in the wide world.
/
Man: Well! Old man I'll have to leave you. Yes so long!
Mr. Bunion: So long! Eh, I'm glad I met you.
