Betty: What happened to you?
Fitzhugh: I went down to the waterfront after some real food. And it was there, too. A fine catch. Fish, shrimp, clam, lobster.
Valerie: It sounds heavenly.
Betty: Sure does.
Fitzhugh: I had the most beautiful shrimp you ever saw. A giant boy sneaked up on me, seized me, and grabbed me in his fist. Courage and self-preservation is all that saved me.
Valerie: Well, where's the shrimp? Didn't you get it?
Fitzhugh: My life was at stake, young lady. Don't you understand that?
Betty: Oh, well, Fitzhugh, we understand it. It's just that you're safe now and we're still hungry.
