Lady Gertrude Allwyn: What is that?

Princess Olga: Why it's one of those things, you know, one of those come-to-you go-from-you things.

King Mantell: Your Highness, there's something wrong with your tub.

Princess Olga: Vat?

King Mantell: Yes, you see, the water runs in and it runs out, but the trouble is it runs out faster than it runs in. I discovered it this morning when I was trying to take a bath. It can only draw about that much water

[his fingers show an inch]

King Mantell: and you can't take a bath with that much water

[shows an inch again]

Princess Olga: Vell, if you're a ploomb-er, why don't you fix it?

King Mantell: Well, I'm not a ploomb-er, uh, I mean, a plumber, but I think I could fix it. Have you got a screwdriver?

Lady Gertrude Allwyn: A screwdriver? Her Highness is not in the habit of going around with a screwdriver on her person.

Princess Olga: [to Mantell] Please go avay.

King Mantell: Well, I was only trying to help, but may I suggest that when you want to take a bath, you should take a shower.

[walks away]

King Mantell: Of course, there's always the ocean.

[Exits]

Princess Olga: [dropping her phony Swedish accent] I'd like to smack that guy right in the kisser.
