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!

Paul... are you sure we ought to be here?



Paul DuChard:
There is nothing to worry about, my dear - we're in England now!



Marlene DuChard:
No, Paul. This is America.



Paul DuChard:
[looking around] Oh yes, America.



Marlene DuChard:
We should've gone to a doctor, Paul. I'm not sure I got all that bullet out of your head.



Paul DuChard:
Oh, chérie... It doesn't matter. It's the thought that counts.
