[the watch is shown sinking]

Cleopatra Pepperday: Oh, I'm so sorry... Oh, Mr. McGonigle!

The Great McGonigle: It's all right.

Cleopatra Pepperday: He has such an impulsive nature.

The Great McGonigle: Yeah, just like my own. Don't apologize. It's all right. It's just a little child... it's just a little child.

The Great McGonigle: That he does!

Cleopatra Pepperday: You should see him when no one's around.

The Great McGonigle: Oh, I'd like to catch him sometime when...

Cleopatra Pepperday: Mr. McGonigle, I hope he hasn't hurt your watch.

The Great McGonigle: [Sarcastically] Oh, no, how could you hurt a watch by dipping it in molasses?

Cleopatra Pepperday: Oh, he's never done that before.

[She titters]

The Great McGonigle: Well, I hope he doesn't do it again - not with this watch.
