START: (The doorbell rings)

(She opens the door to the bedroom and calls in)
If you don't come out, I'll tell the waiter you wear dentures.
(She crosses and opens the front door. JEAN MCCORMACK stands there. She is SAM'S secretary. She is a trim, attractive woman about twenty-eight. She is neatly dressed, bright, cheerful and smilingly efficient)
... Oh! Hello, Miss McCormack.
END: JEAN It's all right. I'm used to it now. Best wishes again, Mrs. Nash.
KAREN (As JEAN starts out) Thanks, dear. And see that he buys me a nice gift.
JEAN (Smiles) I definitely will.
