    • Mary: I was wondering, if you're not doing anything tomorrow night, you would want to come to my place for dinner.
      Lou: Sure, I was wondering where I was going to eat.
      Mary: Oh, great. It's just going to be a small dinner party.
      Lou: I can't make it.
      Mary: Mr. Grant, when you thought it was just going to be dinner, you could make it.
      Lou: Mary, I'm going to have to be frank with you. Brutally frank. You give rotten parties. It's not that I don't have a good time at your parties, Mary. I've had some of the worst times in my life at your parties. Agony. My wife and I broke up at one of your parties. Do you remember? Not that I hold your party responsible, but it sure didn't help.
