C.C. Baxter:
Sorry, Mr. Sheldrake.



J.D. Sheldrake:
What do you mean, sorry?



C.C. Baxter:
You're not going to bring anybody to my apartment.



J.D. Sheldrake:
I'm not just bringing anybody; I'm bringing Miss Kubelik.



C.C. Baxter:
Especially not Miss Kubelik.



J.D. Sheldrake:
How's that again?



C.C. Baxter:
[firmly] No key.



J.D. Sheldrake:
Baxter, I picked you for my team because I thought you were a very bright young man. Do you realize what you're doing? Not to me, but to yourself? Normally, it takes years to work your way up to the twenty-seventh floor. But it only takes thirty seconds to be out on the street again. You dig?



C.C. Baxter:
I dig.



J.D. Sheldrake:
So what's it going to be?


[Baxter slowly reaches into his pocket for a key and drops it on Sheldrake's desk]



J.D. Sheldrake:
Now you're being bright.



C.C. Baxter:
Thank you, sir.


[Baxter goes back into his office, looks around, then reaches into his closet for his coat and hat. Sheldrake comes in moments later]



J.D. Sheldrake:
Say, Baxter, you gave me the wrong key.



C.C. Baxter:
No, I didn't.



J.D. Sheldrake:
But this is the key to the executive washroom.



C.C. Baxter:
That's right, Mr. Sheldrake. I won't be needing it because I'm all washed up around here.



J.D. Sheldrake:
What's gotten into you, Baxter?



C.C. Baxter:
Just following doctor's orders. I've decided to become a "mensch". You know what that means? A human being.



J.D. Sheldrake:
Now, hold on, Baxter -



C.C. Baxter:
Save it. The old payola won't work anymore. Goodbye, Mr. Sheldrake.

Fran Kubelik:
What's a tennis racket doing in the kitchen?



C.C. Baxter:
Tennis racket? Oh, I remember, I was cooking myself an Italian dinner.


[Fran looks confused]



C.C. Baxter:
I use it to strain the spaghetti.
