The Talk of the Town

to hit me on the skull.

You fool, the whole police force
must be looking for you.

The whole country.
I'd like to stay here.
You can't. I'm fixing this house up
for rent. It'll be occupied tomorrow.

- Yes. It's raining, isn't it?
- Definitely.

We're having an early summer.
Could we talk inside?
It's rather damp out here.
