Richard Miller is in love with his neighbor, Muriel McComber.
Start: BELLE You shouldn't be so generous, dearie. Gets him in bad habits. A dime would have been plenty. RICHARD. Ah, that's all right. I'm no tightwad. BELLE. That's the talk I like to hear.
Ending: BELLE. What's the matter, Honey Boy? Haven't you ever kissed like that before? RICHARD. Sure. Lots of times.
