British man:
Plus six Eiffel Towers. How much did they fetch?

[Henry Holland is reading aloud to the elderly Mrs. Chalk from a book titled YOU'D LOOK SWELL IN A SHROUD]



Henry Holland:
Where did we get?



Mrs. Chalk:
Duke Milligan was about to take a gander at Mickey the Greek's hideout.



Henry Holland:
Oh yes, here we are. "I handed my fedora to a hatcheck girl with all that Venus de Milo had got and then more, and I was admiring the more when I glimpsed something in the back of this frail that set my underwear creeping up on me like it had legs."



Mrs. Chalk:
I know that feeling well.



Henry Holland:
"A guy had soft-shoed out of the door from the gaming room as quiet as a snake on tip-belly, and I didn't need my case history of Smiling Abe Montana to know that sonny boy was his number-one triggerman, Ricky the Filipino."



Mrs. Chalk:
I thought it was Little Boy Shultz who carried the rod for Mr. Montana.



Henry Holland:
It was, Mrs. Chalk, but surely you remember? Montana found Shultz taking liberties with that lady.



Mrs. Chalk:
Yes, yes, they took him for a ride. Only last night, wasn't it? Oh, I must be getting old. Read on, Mr. Holland.
