    • George: Boy, Kate. New York City. This is exciting.
      Kate: Uh-huh. Ever been there? New York City, I mean?
      George: Oh, sure.
      Kate: I haven't. What's it like?
      George: It's my kinda town, New York is.
      Kate: That's Chicago, George.
      George: Oh. I thought Chicago was a toddlin' town.
      Kate: I don't think you've been in New York.
      George: Well, maybe not in it. But I flew over it once.
      Kate: I see.
      George: I couldn't. It was cloudy. But I do know the Bronx is up and the battery's down, and people ride in a hole in the ground. (laughs)
      Kate: Uh-huh. It's a wonderful town.
      George: You know, Kate, I was wondering. What do you suppose ever happened to Sybil Divine?
      Captain Tierney: From the flight deck again, this is the captain, John Talespin Tierney.
      (cut to Divine's mugshot)
      Captain Tierney: Sybil Divine was tried in a criminal court in Los Angeles, in and for the state of California. She was found guilty of a 401.13: Fraud, and a 517.3: Attempted extortion, and tucked snugly away from society for a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of 12 years. Miss Divine predicted she would be out sooner than that. She was wrong again.
