Songwriter/agent Albert Peterson and his secretary/girlfriend Rosie
"Don’t But-Albert me, Rose! You are merely woman. I am man! Woman’s job is to obey and keep the house clean! And speak only when is spake to! And my first command, woman, is for you to get our bags and be down at the station by six-thirty tomorrow morning…when I intend to be there with Conrad! And I further command you to bring whatever legal documents are necessary because I intend on making you Mrs. Albert Peterson by 2400 hours tomorrow! Roger, over, and out!…Rose, did I mention I loved you?"
