[They kiss passionately again]

Capt. Jim Fitzpatrick: Hey, I wanna' talk to you. Heard about Belmonte last night, didn't you?

[Toasting]
Det. Ed Fitzpatrick: Down the boobie hatch.
Daisy Stevens, aka Mildred Beaumont: It's pretty hot tonight.
Det. Ed Fitzpatrick: You're telling me!
Daisy Stevens, aka Mildred Beaumont: No, I mean the orchestra. It's not as good as that one at Purple Lodge. Remember? Say, let's go up there this weekend. We never go any place anymore, except come to this dump!

Det. Ed Fitzpatrick: Oh, listen, baby, it's you and me all alone and nobody around. That's a real part of the act, isn't it?
