Christmas in Connecticut

Well, you won't in a minute.
Now get this. Some fool nurse
at a Naval hospital...

...wrote to Yardley asking him to invite a
wounded sailor to your farm for Christmas.

My farm?
Oh, oh, yes, my farm.
Oh, my farm.
And he wants to see you
to arrange it.

Are you crazy?
Where am I going to get a farm?

- I haven't even got a window box.
- We'll have to stall him off.

You know what a stickler he is
for the truth.

If he ever finds out we've been making
all this up, he'll fire the both of us.

Well, it's been nice knowing you.
It's really not as bad as it sounds, Liz.
All you have to do is to go out there and tell
him that your child has whooping cough.

Say that you couldn't possibly
entertain anyone for Christmas.

- Your husband wouldn't like it.
- Oh, yes. Yes, my husband.

Of course, simplest thing in the world.
You go out and tell him.
You're a much better liar than I am.

Oh, no, Liz. He wants to see you.
And when Yardley wants something,
he gets it or else.

I'd rather get fired
than face that old battle ax.

Yes, but what about me?
Remember, I have a wife
and a family to support.

You're not gonna let me down
after all I've done for you?

Oh, all right. I'll go.
Let's see, whooping cough
or maybe scarlet fever.

- It's a better color for Christmas.
- Anything. Only call off the sailor.

Now if you put this over,
I'll get a raise for you. I swear I will.

The things a girl will do for a mink coat.
Come in.
- Well, here I am.
- Hello, John.

An hour early,
but the early bird catches the worm.

- Thanks.
- Don't mention it.

Why are you so early?
I took an earlier train.
That much longer to be with you.

Sloan, go away. We're in conference.
Don't mind Dud today.
We're in a little trouble.

If there's anything I can do for you...
...just say the word.
You know how I feel.

No. How do you feel?
Tell us all about it. Say "ah."
Say, what is this?
Go and build those rabbit hutches
or whatever it is you build.

Multiple dwellings.
And I don't build them. I'm an architect.
Go and be it, then. All you want
to do is to propose to Liz again.
