    1. Henry Williams: You're starved? I want to tell you something Sally Morgan, I've had a piece of toast, two pieces of asparagus, and a bottle of Bromiseltzer since Easter Sunday. Would you believe that?

    1. Mary Custer: Aw, poor Henry, let me hold your hand.
    2. Henry Williams: It's not heavy, I can manage, hold your own hand.

    1. Sheriff Bob Wells: Say, is that guy Henry Williams really as sick as he thinks he is?
    2. Mary Custer: He's so full of pills they can't operate on him, he keeps rolling off the table.
