Bad Day at Black Rock

I'd like to ask you a few questions
while you're around.

I'm around, all right.
I guess probably you've heard...
that Miss Wirth is no longer
in the car rental business.

Good. I wouldn't want to see that girl
get into trouble.

- Wouldn't you?
- What with rental permits...

gas rationing, you know what I mean.
Yeah, I certainly admire
your sturdy sense of responsibility.

It's just that, that girl has a future.
Let's talk about my future.
- Do you think you have the time?
- I don't seem to be going anywhere.

I hear you handle a jeep real well.
Yes, I do have a way with jeeps.
A certain familiarity.

I think I understand. You're an army man.
- Where'd you get it?
- Italy.

That's tough.
I tried to enlist myself the day after
those rats bombed Pearl Harbor.

What stopped you?
