me. well, maybe if i had waited, i might have found another black man just as wonderful, but, uh, rodney came along first and he just happened to be white. well, i'm sorry, frances. maybe he didn't go away mad. maybe he just went down to the corner for a paper. of course. he went to buy a racing form. where would that be? down on the corner. let me go. no, i'll go. i'll be right back. hi, aunt frances. hello, lamont. 's her rush? she's rushing to try to catch the white tornado. i guess by that you mean her husband. yeah. what you doin' home anyway? well, i forgot to take money with me this morning. i couldn't buy no lunch. oh. you know, son, maybe i was a little too hard on him. i think so, too. he's not such a bad guy. nah. yeah. i guess you can learn to like somebody like that. hey, pop, it's gone. all the money is gone. wh-wh-wh-wh-- i knew it. i knew it, son. i knew he was a crook.
ked. we've been had by the kissing bandit. i knew it, son. i knew it. i knew it. you just can't trust 'em. bring 'em into your home and they rob you blind. ok, pop. that's enough already. it's is all my fault though, son. i know better. you're not supposed to tempt them. there's 2 things got to always do. that's hide all your money and lock up all of your liquor. look, let's not go accusing the man on the spot yeah. you're right, son. we have to consider the evidence. now, let's see. the cash is gone and he's gone. guilty. death by hanging. case closed. [knock on door] who could that be? could be the police. the police? don't tell me you called the police. that's right. pop, we don't even know if rodney did it or not. man, look. when they come in here,
all right? no names. no names. hey, what do you say, lamont? hey, hoppy and smitty. how you doin', sir? what's goin' on? i sure am glad they sent you two over as opposed to 2 other policemen. well, thank you very much. you know, there's very few victims of social injustice who give us police officers a warm welcome. what's the problem, fred? well-- well, see, it's kinda of a delicate situation-- now, wait just a minute. let me explain to the man. please. ames. ok. well, listen. here's what happened. now, my sister, who we call madam "x"... madam "x." yeah. sent me a telegram saying that she was married to a gentlemen who we will refer to now as... thievin' honky. yes.

what are you talkin' about? well, i don't wanna be an alarmist, you know, but after 2 years in the bunco division, well, i-- well what? well, there's such a things as a gang of unscrupulous men who go around marrying unsuspecting women and once they spuriously interject themselves into the family unit, they purloin everything they can through a series of sophisticated larcenous machinations. the guy could be a con man tryin' to rip you off. oh, no. now, this is only guesswork, however, in facts. only the facts. never in guesswork. come on, hoppy. let's go. right. see ya later. oh, and remember, gentlemen, the man is innocent until proven guilty. poor fred. he's got a brother-in-law who's guilty. he said that my sister married that guy and all he wanted to do is get his hands on my bunco. this--let's just conduct our lives as if nothin' at all happened. and sooner or later rodney and aunt frances will show up.
