Jerry: Do you understand English? Take your things and go!
Rupert: All right, all right, I can take a hint, Jerry. I just want to ask you to listen to my stuff for fifteen minutes, that’s all. Is that asking too much?
Jerry: Yes it is. I have a life, ok?
Rupert: Well, I have a life too.
Jerry: That’s not my responsibility.
Rupert: Well it is when you tell me to call you and then you don’t…
Jerry: I told you to call to get rid o’ ya!
Rupert: (pause) To get rid of me?
Jerry: That’s right.
Rupert: Ok. All right. I can take a hint.
Jerry: If I didn’t tell you that, we’d still be standing on the steps at my apartment.
Rupert: Yeah, all right. So I made a mistake.
Jerry: So did Hitler!
