Transcription

Man: By Jove! That man is suffering! Suffering bad--
Mr. Bunion: If I could only get relief of some kind from this valise! Some kind of relief! Oh! Oh!
/
Man: Mister, Relief and I are the best of friends. I'll send him up to see you! I'll send relief up right away! Don't tie way like this, just wait! Yes!
/
Man: Wait right here and I'll send relief right up! Just wait a couple of minutes! Um!
Mr. Bunion: Oh! I'll wait, you can bet on that!
/
Mr. Bunion: Yes, sir! I'll wait! I'll surely wait if relief is coming! Um! Bleed relief from this cursed valise! I'll be so happy!--
/
Mr. Bunion: I've carried the old Jonah all my life. Now I'm to get some relief! If it ever comes!
/
Mr. Bunion: I'm beginning to get anxious! Relief was to be here in a couple of minutes! I wish he'd hurry if he's coming.
/
Mr. Bunion: I can't sit here the rest of my life! Huh! I have waited long enough! I think I'll go! Yes!--
/
Mr. Bunion: Yep! I'll go to the barber shop and get shaved! I don't think he'd coming! I'll go and get my face scraped!
