    • Esther: You hear anything from Fred?
      Grady: Well, yeah. He said he was enjoying himself with his family.
      Esther: Did he send any regards?
      Grady: Well, sort of. He said that he had visited the St. Louis Zoo.
      Esther: Watch it, Grady.
      Grady: And he was having a wonderful time.
      Esther: Yeah.
      Grady: And he wished that I was there.
      Esther: Be careful.
      Grady: And was sure you already were!
      Esther: That did it!

      Grady: Martel's? Are you crazy? Stealing a radio from Martel's when they got color televisions? You know, I dislike a thief, but I hate the dumb ones!
