Scene excerpts


  • Christine: Where's Judge Stone?
  • Leslie: He's, uh... out on the ledge.
  • Christine: Oh, please. You expect me to believe a municipal court judge is cowering out on a ledge?
  • Mac:: [gleefully] That's what he's doing, all right!

[out the window]

  • Mac: Good evening, sir!
  • Harry: Hi there, Mac. I suppose you're wondering why I'm naked out here on the ledge.
  • Mac: Oh, no sir, no sir. I was wondering if I needed a flash.

[he raises a camera and snaps a shot]

  • Mario: [who's been fixing Harry's suit of armor] Judge, I got your codpiece ready... whoa, just in time!
  • Mac: [offering the codpiece] Sir, you want to put on something more comfortable? Ha ha ha...
  • Harry: You don't really have to enjoy this so much.
  • Mac: Oh, yes I do, sir!

  • Dolly: Oh, Danny! This is so exciting! I've never done it in a judge's office! How did you get a key?
  • Dan: Well, when the judge wasn't looking, I "borrowed" his and made a wax impression of it.

[They are unaware that Harry is trapped on the ledge outside, and can hear every word.]

  • Dolly: Oh-ho! Would he be mad if he found out?
  • Dan: Hey, what Howdy Doody doesn't know, won't hurt me!
