Episode 73 scene 3.

     Dialog between Rodney and Allison.

     Allison is locking the Book Gallery and preparing to leave.
     Rodney drives up in his convertible and honks.

RH:  Hello, Allison.
AM:  Hello.
RH:  Had you right in my sights, too.
AM:  10 points off for hitting a pedestrian on the sidewalk.  Better

RH:  Your chariot awaits without.
AM:  Without me, I'm afraid.  I need the air.

     That's quite a situation.  But it doesn't have to be a problem, not 
     for us, Allison.  Oh, come to the party. 
AM:  What party?
RH:  The paint party.
AM:  Oh, you're painting out the Hanleys?

     partying than painting.  But . . . 
AM:  I'm sorry.  I'd like to.  I really would.  I can't.

     [Allison does a 180 and heads toward the Chandlery.]
