First Monday in October

- Alice looked awful.
- Know what burns me?

Today's Star brushed
off Stanley's life

with 2 inches and printed two
full pages of smart-ass speculation

- about his replacement.
- Been a terrible ordeal for her.

I bet it's a surprise,
somebody nobody thought of.

- She doesn't have many close friends.
- It's always a surprise.

Especially to the guy
who gets tapped.

Maybe I'll plan a dinner party
for her after a week or so.

President gave me the nod, I was
so surprised I couldn't talk.

I don't think I could stand one of
those teas, with all those wives.

Could be anybody. Lot of good
men around. Lot of lousy ones too.

If I were Alice, I'd go to Europe,
the warm part.

- How was Europe?
- Wet.

- How was your mountain?
- High.

You have any idea who's
gonna be appointed?

- To what?
- The court.

I never try to second-guess
a president.

Man moves into the White House,
you have no idea what
happens to his mind.

I just hope he has an active
membership card in the human race.

- Waldo.
- Hey, Dan.

Feels like the first day
of school, doesn't it?

- Hope I never graduate.
- Don't know what we'd do without you.

Morning, Radabaugh.
Anything happen?

All that's happened is on
your desk, Mr. Justice Snow.

- Still got the same cold?
- Sinus.

Who's that?
Mason Woods, sir.
