hello. nice talking to you. goodbye. -wilbur, are you home? -right with you rog. i'd like my lunch now dear, please. yes, your highness. wilbur. hey, i've been calling you all morning. your phone's been tied up. tied up? it's been strangled. carol's been gabbing away on the phone, but i really laid the law down. i said from now on, those calls are going to be short and to the point. you really told your wife to cut down on the telephone calls? that's right. an act of raw courage. in england, you'd be knighted for that. oh, it's nothing roger. i happen to have a very understanding wife. one thing about carol. when she's wrong, she's the first one to admit it. carol: wilbur, you can sit down. your lunch is ready. thanks, hon. see rog? no hard feelings. she's a great old sport.
my, that looks yummy. no, she's just kidding rog. i mean we're always making little jokes like that. you know? i mean... a sense of humor, it's the oil on the troubled waters of matrimony. -then why aren't you laughing? -because it's not funny! excuse me, rog. honey, i think it's time we had a little chat. hello. nice talking to you. goodbye! that's all i'm allowed to say. carol, i don't think i'm being unreasonable about this telephone. hmph! honey, i think i know what your problem is.
i mean if you had to go out and work and earn money to pay these bills, you might show a little more consideration. oh, you want me to go to work. is that it? i didn't say that. very well, i'll pay my way. i don't want to be a burden here. i'll earn my keep. carol, nobody is asking you to go to work. i mean, even if you wanted to go to work, there's nothing you could do. oh, you think not? why, there are a dozen jobs i could handle. maybe it would be a good idea if i got a job. then we wouldn't have these money arguments. i think i'll start job hunting today. okay, honey. -what? -i'm very proud of you dear. good luck. oh, sorry rog. i didn't know you were listening. my boy, i'm proud of you! you handled her beautifully. you got to call that bluff. i mean can you imagine carol, a dolling in the beauty shops, going to work?
oh yeah, yeah. -hi sweetie. -hi kay. -what are you doing? looking for a sale? -no, for a job. a job? doesn't wilbur like what he's doing? it's a job for me kay. i've decided to go to work. for you? bite your tongue sweetie. marriage is a partnership composed of a team. the worker and the shirker. and you know what team we're on. no kay. wilbur made an issue of the telephone bills, so i've decided to pay my own way. carol, a husband wants to support his darling little wife. because, well if he doesn't, we throw him in jail. now, eh. throw away those wanteds they're making me nervous. no, kay. if i give up now. i'll never hear the end of it. there must be some job i can handle. well, if you've made up your mind, let's be logical. now, what are the things you do well? well, i'm a good cook. fair cook?
good enough to eat out. next. -well, i'm a real good dancer. -why that's right, you are. why, i bet a dance studio would hire you in a minute. yes, i could teach dancing, couldn't i? well, you taught addison how to cha cha. and the only step he knew before that was the minuet. i wonder what wilbur will say if i do get a job. oh well, i don't think he really wants you to work. he'll make you quit after the first day. that's what i'm counting on. -hey ed. -get my tv set? you know, a colored tv set would be wasted on you. everybody knows, all animals are color blind. a rumor. spread by the makers of black and white sets. no. it is an established fact. we learn in zoology that all animals are color blind. -unable to distinguish... -you shouldn't wear that green sweater with those blue slacks. don't interrupt. animals can only distinguish shades of grey.
that was just a wild guess. you get a load of that maroon shirt. you look like the scarlet pimpernel. according to everything i've read, horses aren't supposed to see color. a horse isn't supposed to talk either. anyway, you can't have a colored tv set. it's too expensive. honey, i'm off to work now. oh, i left some cold cuts and potato salad in the refrigerator for you. okay, carol. wait a minute. what's this about work? well dear, i told you i was getting a job. i've got to run now. i'll tell you all about it when i get home tonight. if you're still awake. how. hold it. what kind of a job do you have? guess. a welder?
-a dance instructor? -that's right, honey. every evening from 5 to 10. monday through friday. one-two, cha cha cha. one-two, cha cha cha. i'll make more than enough to pay for the phone bills. one-two, cha cha cha. one-two, cha cha cha. one-two, cha cha cha. one-two, cha cha cha. one-two, cha cha cha. one-two, cha cha cha. hasta la vista. cha cha cha. one-two, cha cha cha. one-two. maybe, i can get a job too. buy my own color set. now let's see. help wanted - women. help wanted - men. and no help wanted - horses. discrimination. here's one. sell real estate by phone.
was it really that tough carol? it was awful. six beginners. i was pushed, stepped on, bumped and dragged around. i feel like i've just survived a buffalo stampede. well, remember sweetie. wilbur is suffering much more than you are. oh sure. right now, he's bowling his little heart out. when i got home a few minutes ago, all i found was a note and some corn plasters. oh kay, i think i'll quit my job. you can't quit! i was against this, honey. but. well if you give up now, wilbur will never let you hear the end of it. i know, but i... here they come. remember what a nasty laugh wilbur has. put these on. quick! rog, come on in. help me carry my exhausted little breadwinner up to bed. all right.
oh kay, i wish you'd been there. it would have been so much fun with you. you would have loved it! oh addison hasn't taken me dancing in a thousand years. she doesn't look like she needs to be carried to bed, does she? no. but you do. don't look so worried. smile. one-two, cha cha cha. one-two, cha cha cha. honey, we home. oh, hi boys. oh, what a night! -you are worn out, uh? -oh no! oh, no, i never knew work could be so much fun! imagine being paid for doing something you just love. isn't that swell? one-two, cha cha cha. one-two, cha cha cha. one-two, cha cha cha. carol tells me, she's been booked for the next five weeks. -five weeks? -that's right honey. you won't have to worry about that telephone bill anymore. honey, about the phone and this job... a great little wife you've got there wilbur. not many women would be willing to share the expenses.
come on doll. let's fix some coffee for the boys. they look tired. come on kay. one-two-three la congo one-two-three la congo one-two-three la congo one-two-three la congo one-two-three la congo one-two-three la congo one-two-three la congo rog, a $40 phone bill, isn't too bad. wilbur, if you give in now, she'll never let you forget it. she'll laugh at you for the rest of your life. yeah. and her laugh's nearly as nasty as mine is. you mark my words. in two weeks she'll come begging. two weeks? before you said two days! but remember my boy. the longer the fight, the sweeter the victory. oh fine. i'm fighting and she's dancing.
i represent the golden acres real estate company. the breathtaking beauty of death valley can now be yours. get in on the newest and most exciting land offering in the west. i'll have to call you back sir. hello, blue eyes. say, i like that yellow sweater with the turquoise shirt. okay, so you're not colorblind. you're still not going to get that tv set. and this is not turquoise. it happens to be baby blue. well, snap my rompers. you're right. look. i've been having trouble with carol the last few days. one nag in the family's enough. what if i paid for the set with my own money? you wanna go to work too? like carol? i might. maybe, i should call miss irene's and see if they need another dance instructor.
maybe you'd like to be a waiter at the turf club. just don't be surprised if i earn that money. i wouldn't be surprised at anything anymore. well, i've got to get some of my own work done. where are those winslow sketches? wilbur, i just saw carol. she told me to tell you that she was going to that dance studio in just a few minutes and she left a turkey in the ice-box. oh fine. while she's dancing with some hot latin, i'll be snuggling up with a cold turkey. -i'm going to make her quit. -don't. don't weaken my boy. don't weaken. as i told you, it's just a matter of two or three months. months? wilbur, when have i ever advised you wrong? when? well, let's see. we moved next door to you on the 12th of april. i'd say, since the 12th of april. all right, fine. don't listen to me. go in there on your hands and knees. beg her to quit. give her free reign on the phone. humble yourself. wave the white flag.
that is the worst thing he could possibly do. now he's got me talking to this dumb animal. some day i'm going to answer him and he'll drop dead. honey, i feel that one worker in the family is enough. oh well, darling, if you want to quit your job, go ahead. -excuse me honey. -(phone ringing) hello. yes, this is mrs. post. oh, how much is our telephone bill up to yesterday? what? $148? oh, but there must be some mistake. hello, this is mr. post. what was that amount again? $148? so the telephone's been in constant use, eh? thank you very much.
of course. that big bill. that was me making phone calls in my sleep. oh, you never take my word for anything.
