Jasper Blubber:
The murderer is a Rumanian sailor by the name of Vladimir Tserijemiwtz.



Lou Peckinpaugh:
Can you say that again?



Jasper Blubber:
Not without spitting. - Well, sir, I have spent sixteen years, and every penny I have, sir, tracking this man down, and at last I have found him! He is here in San Francisco, just as sure as you're sitting there. He's changed his name by making an anagram out of his original name. Seven years I've tried to unscramble it, to no avail.

Bess:
Hold onto your hat. Vladimir Tserijemiwtz is Ezra C.V. Mildew Dezire Jr.!



Lou Peckinpaugh:
Wait a minute. Tserijemiwtz has two T's. The name you come up with don't have none.



Bess:
That was the whole key. Some people spell the Czar of Russia T-S-A-R. But in America we spell it C-Z-A-R.



Lou Peckinpaugh:
Any fool knows that.



Bess:
So when I tried the American spelling, I came up with Ezra...



Bess, Lou Peckinpaugh:
...C.V. Mildew Dezire Jr.!



Lou Peckinpaugh:
Of course! - Who the hell is he?



Bess:
The owner of the Golden Gate Bridge.



Lou Peckinpaugh:
Right. You did fine, angel. Now forget you ever heard that name. Don't ever repeat it to anyone.


[the phone rings]



Bess:
[into phone] Hello? - Yes, he is. Who's calling, please?


[to Lou]



Bess:
It's him! Ezra C.V. Mildew Dezire Jr.!



Lou Peckinpaugh:
I told you not to repeat it!

I tried it that way. It's not as much fun alone.
