[the judge is reading the long list of charges brought against Henry Tyroon et al]



Judge:
Mr. Vanson, this indictment seems to be a little enthusiastic!



Hector Vanson:
Well, they're a pretty slippery bunch, your honor. I had to throw the book at 'em.

Molly Thatcher:
Now, why do you suppose Mr. Bear wants me to fight off a large Texan?



Eloise Cott:
You think he's got more than business on his mind?



Molly Thatcher:
Every man has sex on the brain, like it's some sort of wonder drug... a cure-all for everything: colds, pleurisy, arthritis. I even had a guy once tell me that sex prevents cavities.



Eloise Cott:
Cavities? In your teeth?



Molly Thatcher:
Sure. When you're tense, you have more acids in your mouth; and acids eat enamel. When you get rid of the tension, you get rid of the acids. And the best way to get rid of tension...



Eloise Cott:
Don't tell me! let me guess.

[in his office, Bear is telling Whitby to fire Molly to save money - she gets up from her desk]



Bullard Bear:
Where is she going?



Whitby:
Her lunch club, I think.



Bullard Bear:
Women shouldn't be allowed to have lunch clubs. We gotta keep 'em off-balance, disorganized, clawing and scratching at each other. Otherwise they might turn on us like mad dogs!

Molly Thatcher:
I don't understand. How can you buy something when you don't even know what it is?



Ray Jay:
Well, you see, ma'am, Henry here is a real wheeler dealer. And a wheeler dealer is somebody that loves to find places for money to go. It's like hitchin' on to a star. You may zoom up to the sky on a mighty pretty ride.



Molly Thatcher:
And if the star falls?



Henry Tyroon:
Well, then I find some way for the, uh, government to take three-quarters of the loss.



Jay Ray:
You see, Miss Thatcher, that's the mark of a REAL wheeler dealer.

[they have discovered that Universal Widgets has no factory, but Molly is still supposed to sell their stock and Henry says he'll help her]



Molly Thatcher:
Henry, you're an operator; but do you know anything about the stock market?



Henry Tyroon:
Well, I know the stock market is money and emotion. There's hope when you start out, greed on the way up, fear on the way down. I know that, uh, the stock market is people... and if there's anything you can't sell people, I've yet to find out what it is. These people need a reason to buy. The beauty of it is: the reason doesn't have to make sense.



Molly Thatcher:
You're not thinking of anything illegal are you?



Henry Tyroon:
I'm never illegal. I'm just close to it.
