Written by Paul Huson; produced by Nigel McKeand; directed by Arthur Allan Seidelman.
Paul Shenar: Bob Gantry.
Marilyn Chris: Miss Grey.
Charles Hallahan: watch commander.
Louise Foley: Audrey Pfeiffer.
Ned Wilson: instructor.
Annie: A quadratic equation in two unknowns. 6x2 + 2y = 1. Therefore... Buddy: Therefore... um... x = 1/3xy. (!!) Annie: And why? Willie: Why? Because we like you! Buddy: Butt out. Willie: I'm sorry. It's just that the thought of an algebra problem brings back these dreaded memories. Buddy: Yeah, but you're not the one who has to take the exam. Willie: You'll do fine. Just remember the gazintas. Buddy: The what? Willie: The gazintas. You know -- two gazinta six three times, three gazinta nine three times... Annie: Don't you have a plane to catch? Willie: As a matter of fact, I do. Excuse me... The Dame Game goes to San Francisco. A foggy week of wine, women, and game-show questions. Buddy: I'll go with you. And we can stump 'em all with quadratic equations, huh? Willie: Oh, come on. I'll bet you anything that you pass. Buddy: Bet your car. Willie: Anything but that.
Gantry: Not a bad year... I approve. But for my next visit, I prefer Burgundy to Bordeaux. Doug: There's not gonna be a next visit, Gantry. Gantry: Sure there is. I imagine it'll take the police all of 7 minutes to get here. I'm sure your wife has called them by now. Which gives me about 5 minutes' leeway. Doug: What makes you think I'm gonna let you leave? Gantry: Because I know you, Lawrence. You're not about to use that gun on me. Doug: You sure? Gantry: Sure I'm sure. You're a reasonable man... Taking life offends you. You're like all the rest of 'em out there -- hiding behind the laws, because you're too weak to stand on your own hind legs.
