Girl: (turning to Caskell with bated breath) "You are Sir Philip Sidney?"

Oh, that's marvelous. I mean you're a totally different kind of specimen to Professor Kastner. Straight in your seat, erect, firm.

Well it doesn't matter, anyway. I can hit it seven times out of ten, that's the point.

It's Christmas in Heaven.
There's great films on TV:
'The Sound of Music' twice an hour
And 'Jaws' One, Two, and Three.
