Imitation of Life

Thank you.
Where did they come from?

The milkman was here
a minute ago.

I told him to leave
your regular order.

Oh, no. He didn't come
to leave my order. He stopped
doing that two weeks ago.

May I?
Thank you.

He wanted to collect
something on his bill.

Didn't say anything
about a bill to me.
He was very polite.

Gave me the order and said,
looked like things
were picking up.

He thought you were my maid.
Now he thinks I'm prosperous.

No sin in lookin' prosperous.
Just a way of showin'
your trust in the lord.

Telling him you're ready
whenever he is.

I'll get it, Miss Lora.
Miss Meredith's

I'll see if it's convenient
for Miss Meredith
to come to the phone.

Is it the landlord
Mr. Berwitt?

Pretty sure he said
the A-Acme Model Agency.

Yes, this is Miss Meredith.
Yes. Yes, I can be there
by then.

Fine. Thank you.
Oh, Annie, I've got
a job modeling.

A job?
I've registered everywhere.
But this is the first call.

Now, isn't that fine?
Annie, if you have
no other plans, will you stay
with Susie until I come back?

Why, certainly.
Do you know this will be
the first money I've earned
since I came to New York?

Except for those envelopes.
I was wondering what they were.
I address them
for a mail-order house.

By hand.
It gives them a personal touch,
and I can do them at home.

They should have been
finished yesterday.
Well, can't be helped.

If I get a job modeling,
at least I'll be seen.
