and the Blue Devil and all the rest.
Why couldn't you get a job?
Have you tried?
Sure. I've been all over town -
all the employment offices and the USES.
They say I ought to spend
a couple of years as an apprentice,
or go to a trade school.
A couple of years,
with you going to kindergarten.
And what would I be doing
in the meantime?
You can always help me
with my homework.
- Fred.
- Yeah?
- Are you really all right?
- Of course I'm all right. Why?
I mean, in your mind. Is anything...?
My mind?! You mean
you think I'm going goofy?
I've been wondering.
What was Gadowsky?
- Where did you hear about him?
- You talk in your sleep.
Something's on fire
and you want somebody to get out.
You keep saying "Gadowsky! Gadowsky!"
Gadorsky.
He was a friend of mine, a B-17 pilot.
He got it over Berlin.
- Can't you get it out of your system?
- Oh, sure
The war's over. You won't get anyplace
till you stop thinking about it.
- Come on, snap out of it!
- OK, honey, I'll do that
I didn't tell you, Fred,
but I got a little money saved.
Dinner's on me tonight.
You'd better keep on saving it.
It might come in handy sometime.
I appreciate the offer,
but we're eating at home.
Well, I'm hungry.
I'm going out by myself.
- You're not going. You'll eat what I cook.
- Let go of me!
When we married, the justice of the peace
said "For better, for worse". Remember?
- This is the "worse".
- When do we get the "better"?
When I get wise to myself, I guess.
When I realise I'm not an officer
and a gentleman any more,
I'm just another soda jerk out of a job.
Go and sit down and read a magazine or
listen to the radio while I cook the soup.
I'll fix you a nice meal, honey.
Just like I used to do behind
the fountain, before the war.
Perfume and Cosmetics
is our outstanding feature.
It accounts for 34% of gross intake
and an even higher proportion of profits.
As you will surmise, our customers
in this department are women.
Yes, I'd surmised that.
You must familiarise yourself with the
correct pronunciation of all the perfumes.
- Rve Romantique.
- That means Romantic Dream.
- You speak French?
- Sticky, just enough to go to Paris bars.
Let's get one thing straight, Derry.
The name "Sticky" is out.
Yes, Mr Merkel. I understand.
This week we're pushing the new
Champagne Bubble Bath. $1.98.
Down here are some special... Come here.
Down here are some
specially made-up toilet sets...
- Thank you.
- Morning, Mr Latham.
- Morning.
- Good morning, Mr Stephenson.
What have we here?
The Bretton Woods Agreement?
That's a Mr Novak, waiting over there.
He's applying for a GI loan.
- Oh, good. I'll see him.
- Mr Novak.
- Sit down, Mr Novak.
- Thank you, sir.
Don't "sir" me, Mr Novak.
I'm a sergeant.
- I see you were in the navy.
- Yes, sir.
I mean, yes, I was. In the Seabees.
Where'd you operate?
All over the Pacific.
One island after another.
What'd you do, mostly?
Go in before the landings and clear
the mines and underwater obstructions.
When they'd taken enough ground
for an airstrip we'd build it.
- Fairly interesting work, eh?
- No, it got monotonous.
Those islands all look alike.
Until Iwo Jima. That was different.
So I've heard.
I see you have quite a family.
A wife and four children.
Yes. There'd have been more
if I hadn't been away three years.
- And now you wanna buy a farm.
- Yes, sir.
Got my eye on a fine piece of property.
40 acres, out near Anton Corners.
What about collateral?
- Collateral? What's that?
- Security for your loan.
What can you put up
in the way of property?
Have you any stocks and bonds?
Real estate? Valuables of any kind?
No, Mr Stephenson. You see, the point is,
I haven't got any property.
That's why I want the loan,
so I can get the property.
I see.
No collateral.
That makes things difficult.
I'm a good farmer, Mr Stephenson.
Why, even during the war
I kept my hand in.
I used to spend my spare time down on
those
