George tells her if she wants the moon he’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down for her. What a bunch of nerds! I bet today they would find each other on dorkmatch.com. “I’ll give you the moon,” George says, “then you can swallow it and it’ll dissolve, see, and the moonbeams would shoot out of your fingers and your toes…” How long was George under water at the pool?
Finally some pervert who has been watching them this whole time tells George to kiss Mary instead of talking her to death. No shit. George threatens to kiss her and Mary takes off into the bushes because when she ran, George was stepping on the tie to her robe and it COMPLETELY COMES OFF. Whatever. How is she not getting scratches from those hydrangeas?
I thought Mary would have waited longer before showing her bush.
George teases Mary and walks all the way around the hydrangea bush with her robe. I must know the fertilizer they use on that plant, it’s amazingly full. Suddenly a car pulls up and Uncle Billy tells George he has to come back home because Bailey Sr. has had a stroke. Oh, great wishing, Mary! You just killed George’s dad so you could get what you wanted. That Donna Reed is such a selfish bitch!
George is at the Building and Loan wearing a black stripe on his jacket sleeve. Bailey Sr. passed a few months ago and George missed his trip to Europe to stay and help out with some paperwork. It’s called attorneys and assistants, look into them.
George is about ready to head off to college as the board chooses a successor. Potter has his Hanes in a wad and says the Building and Loan isn’t necessary and they should liquidate. Someone says, “It’s too soon after Peter Bailey’s death to talk about chloroforming the Building and Loan!” Well, when you finally do decide to do that, I bet George can point you to the right pharmacist!
I can badmouth a dead guy, I’m crippled!
And I can use the word cripple, too!
George and Uncle Billy are asked to leave so they can vote and one of the board members thanks them and says some nice things about Bailey Sr. Then Potter opens his befouled mouth and says that Bailey Sr. wasn’t a businessman and that’s what killed him. Unless he had just had a prescription delivered from Gower’s, then that’s what probably did it.
Potter even goes so far to pull out loan paperwork showing the Building and Loan provided a loan to Taxi Driver and Potter’s like, what the hell were you guys thinking? He has no money or collateral and sits around all day waiting for someone to need a ride. Yeah, you probably don’t need a taxi in a city of 200 with a central downtown.
