Lou: Well I was watching the girls admiring Lana Turner's new necklace
Bud: Lana Turner has a new necklace?
Lou: Yes, made out of her old wedding rings! (Audience laughs)
Bud: Hey, who was that girl you was with last night?
Lou: ooooohhh. That's my new girl!
Bud: What's she like Lou?
Lou: What's she like? She likes bourbon, scotch, gin, rye, wine, bourbon
Bud: Where did you meet this girl?
Lou: oohh, at the Paladium. I asked her for a dance
Bud: Did you dance the foxtrot, the tango or the waltz?
Lou: The one step!
Bud: The one step?
Lou: One step and I changed my mind about dancing with her!
Bud: Why? wasn't she a good dancer?
Lou: No, but she makes you forget about dancing during the intermision (can't
make out this word, neither can the audience and no one laughs) (whistles)
Lou: When I took her home, I kissed her goodnight and got a real good kick out
Bud: Her kisses are that good?
Lou: No her father caught us! (loads of laughter here)
Bud: Instead of running around every night with a different girl, why don't you
settle down and get married Lou?
Lou: Not me Abbott, getting married is like going to a cafeteria
Bud: Like a cafeteria?
Lou: yeah, you grab what you want and pay for it later! (loads more laughs -
