Jeffrey 'Jeff': Two years of it. Work, work, work, all day long. And at night, a nice peaceful quiet Spain. Boy, but now that I'm home and all of that lovely Brooklyn noise, baby, I'm gonna stay here. New York! What a town! Hard, cold, unfriendly, everything bad. But, baby, I love it! You know, when I got a look at that skyline today, baby, I'm telling you, I got a thrill like I've never had in my life before. The Woolworth's building. The Chrysler building. Oh, babe! Hey, taxi, taxi!
