I made my chance, and this is it. 222 00:14:29,115 --> 00:14:33,232 Either I handle the megaphone on her first picture, or I walk her right over to Pathé. 223 00:14:33,252 --> 00:14:35,301 Why, you're talking like a lunatic. 224 00:14:35,321 --> 00:14:37,937 You can't take her to another studio.

You've made promises to me before. 232 00:15:01,180 --> 00:15:03,963 Either I direct Molly in her first picture, or we walk right over to Pathé. 233 00:15:03,983 --> 00:15:05,086 - Don't we, honey? - Yeah. 234 00:15:05,106 --> 00:15:08,692 Well, all right.
