angel & fox: Some kinda bestos, my housemate just said. What a roo-ay.17:30

Rush: You looked fast!17:30

Rush: $100…that’s about $1,500 today.17:31

HonoluLou: Speed…we know about him, don’t we!17:31

Frosty: The guy who starred i Thirteen Ghosts17:32

Frosty: Speed17:32

HonoluLou: I wanna go to the Hottentot Club, where is it? 17:32

Louise: Thirtenn Ghosts: so scary in 3D17:32

Nothere: Well in most of these movies he’s gonna get fired. Then rehired for a greater salary when he gets the story.17:32

Rush: Somewhere near Broadway, I figure, lou!17:33

angel & fox: Her MONEY worth $1500 today—her photo—unh.17:33

HonoluLou: Ah yes, Rush…of course!17:33

Rush: Just a guess!17:33

Rush: I like how CC took that!17:35

LibraryJim: easy come, easy go17:35

Rush: I would not be as charitable!17:35

Phil: A fur of unknown species.17:35

Louise: That jacket is icky17:35

LibraryJim: probably mink17:35

HonoluLou: Bet she couldn’t wear it in NY today!17:35

Rush: Maybe silver….17:36

angel & fox: Gams made for stares—i mean, stairs.17:36

Rush: Correct, Lou!17:36

Nothere: It’s alive. She’s sneaking the animal past customs by pretending it’s a fur.17:36

Rush: :)17:36

HonoluLou: Is there a head on that coat?17:36

LibraryJim: I didn’t see one17:36

Frosty: God one Nothere17:36

Rush: Didn’t see one, Lou…17:36

Frosty: Good17:36

Rush: “And STEP on it!”17:37

angel & fox: Frail planned to play Delilah to Lee/Samson’s LOCKS.17:37

HonoluLou: Sometimes they’d have the head hanging down, but didn’t see one either.17:37

Phil: A little matter of paying for the taxi.17:37

LibraryJim: how’s he going to pay for the cab? Oh, yeah, he has a dollar17:37

Frosty: Feet too17:37

Rush: “Flashlight” = Flashbulb.17:38

LibraryJim: creepiest place in town17:38

Rush: Candid Camera Nite….17:38

angel & fox: INIQUITY is having a Den meeting.17:38

Louise: Shooting up their skirts?17:38

angel & fox: LOOK at that SLEAZE slide!17:38

Rush: VERY candid, louise….17:38

angel & fox: HE’s been around; SHE’s been a square.17:38

Nothere: Your not gonna find a nightclub like this today. If there ever was one like this.17:38

Rush: Buzz Moran.17:39

angel & fox: Notty, if i HAD the bucks i’17:39

Rush: True, NT!17:39

Rush: Blue Washington: Doorman at Hottentot Club17:39

angel & fox: i’d be trying to open one JUST LIKE.17:39

Rush: :)17:39

HonoluLou: Is that the actor, Rush?17:39

Rush: I will try to make opening night, Angel!17:39

Rush: Yes, Lou.17:39

angel & fox: Rush, YOU and ALL will be COMPED.17:39

Rush: TYSM!17:40

Rush: Yes, Phil!17:40

Matt1: <oil can>17:40

LibraryJim: The only reference on Google to the Hotentot club takes me to this movie17:40

HonoluLou: Ah OH!17:40

angel & fox: Phil, YOU have the STEELY MIND of the True Detective.17:40

Rush: LOTS of great slang to be heard in this one!17:40

Louise: She’s terrible17:41

Frosty: There’s a hot little number17:41

angel & fox: The Search function yields SO MANY truly ABSORBING treasures.17:41

HonoluLou: LJ, there seems to be somthing in Africa on Google, too. Will have to check later.17:41

Rush: Yes, Angel?17:41

Phil: Sure takes a lot of skill to dance like that.17:41

Rush: Lee prowls…17:41

Nothere: Today this is called cell phone night.17:41

Rush: Yes!17:41

LibraryJim: today you don’t have to worry about finding someone to develop those “risqué” pictures17:42

Nothere: Lee indulging his criminal tendencies once again. 17:42

angel & fox: Thinking of ’40s movies’ “clubs”, i ALWAYS have liked the “Neptune Club” from “This Gun For Hire”. The club has a real part in the story, so its implausible decor & such get a LOTTA running time. Great.17:42

Rush: Tashia Mori: Ling Tse 17:42

Nothere: Heck today you send your own risqué pictures. So whose up for sexting:)17:42

Phil: I tried the same thing once at college. Cops didn’t believe I was a detective.17:42

angel & fox: I don’t wonder that CC worried Lee might go either way—um, let me rephrase that—17:43

HonoluLou: I lived in Taiwan for 2 year. The Chinese would build scaffolds out of Bamboo. And they’d carry bricks on each end of a stick across their back…no hands.17:43

Phil: I think she’s having a seizure.17:43

Rush: Yes, Lou?17:43

Rush: Which city?17:43

Nothere: Probably had to do with the panties in you hand Phil. Should have gone for the goldfish.17:43

HonoluLou: Taipei17:43

angel & fox: The things they’d do for—well, the things they’d do.17:44

Rush: I know when they had the big earthquake some years ago, some of those buildings came down!17:44

angel & fox: Your office is legally Europe.17:44

HonoluLou: Love that sneak around the floor!17:44

Rush: I went through there in 1998.17:44

HonoluLou: WoW! I didn’t know that, Rush. I was there ’74-76 and while there General Chang Kei Shek (sic) died.17:45

Phil: I think I’m going to get a tuxedo.17:45

Rush: Also saw Kaoshiung.17:45

angel & fox: Fox here haaaates her mink.17:45

Rush: Yes, Lou?17:45

Rush: Interesting time!17:45

Cdirus: I think it17:46

angel & fox: I’m imagining Mae West in this role.17:46

Phil: Oh Oh.17:46

Rush: yes, Angel!17:46

Nothere: Well I can loan you my top hat Phil.17:46

Cdirus: is too long furred to be a mink, fox probably17:46

Louise: good joke17:46

Rush: wouldn’t THAT have been interesting!17:46

HonoluLou: Yes, Rush. They only had one American TV show on, once a week…Kojak! And they’d cut it off in the middle…haha.17:46

Rush: Chan at the dinner!17:46

Phil: I’m going to wear it every Monday while watching Chan movies.17:46

Nothere: Charlie at a fancy dinner. Notice how his wife never attends. Guess they don’t want to spring for an extra thirteen plates.17:47

Frosty: Why do people tell bad guys they’re going to spill the beans.17:47

Rush: “…and, though almost 24 hours have elapsed since Billie Bronson
and Thomas Mitchell were murdered, the police have discovered
nothing tangible enough to justify an arrest. All they have is a torn
diary page found by Charlie Chan, which they consider an excellent
clue, but in the opinion of this observer, it only indicates the work
of a perfect criminal, so clever and daring, that he has deliberately
planted it to obtain free publicity for a terrific blackmailing scheme.
This may be a subtle way of warning certain people in New York
that he has this dynamite diary and that he is ready to light the fuse.
I wonder if Johnny Burke is the only racketeer whose blood pressure
will remain high as long as the Bronson diary and its unknown possessor
are in circulation.”17:47

Rush: (Text of Chan’s speech)17:48

Nothere: Well then the only question is do you need a monocle, or is that going too over the top?17:48

LibraryJim: They have a dark room on the premises. That takes care of the problem of where to get it developed17:48

Rush: Plus something else…!17:48

Phil: Wow Rush, you type REALLY fast.17:48

Nothere: Tin can17:48

angel & fox: WOW!! I don’t see how ANYBODY can stop the Chan For Prez 1940 bandwagon!17:48

angel & fox: NT, you’17:49

Rush: Well…he was world-renouned!17:49

Louise: Chan for Prez indeed17:49

angel & fox: you’re RIGHT. I’d already donated my cans for the war effort.17:49

Rush: Hard to beat FDR, though!17:49

HonoluLou: Nice Vest!17:49

Phil: TYSM NT.17:49

Phil: Dang, I missed cuing the can.17:50

Rush: Did we get the can?17:50

Phil: NT got it Rush17:50

Rush: Very good!17:50

angel & fox: NOT to stray from territory carefully congenial, but i DO think CC would exercise a STRONG pull. At this point in history nobody knew Eisenhower’s affiliation…17:50

Nothere: Child abandoner, always hanging out with crooks, uses position of power to cover for kids. Oh I’m sure the media could find something to complain abiout his presidency run.17:50

Rush: more than 30 minutes before the first murder! Probably the Chan series record!17:51

angel & fox: PUT ON A WRAP, sister!17:51

LibraryJim: Get rid of Hoover and put him in charge of the FBI17:51

Louise: yelling yellin17:51

Phil: Johnny was in CC at Treasure Island17:51

Rush: Yes, Phil!17:51

angel & fox: NT, you’re—sadly—probly right.17:51

Nothere: Confess. I’m not going to stop pointing at things until someone confesses.17:51

LibraryJim: I was looking in ALL the keyholes. Yeah, that’s not creepy.17:52

angel & fox: I’m feeling a little corduroy myself.17:52

HonoluLou: Ah, the ole missing napkin!17:52

Louise: LIGHTS!17:53

Rush: Lights out!17:53

Phil: The Old Light Switch Trick.17:53

HonoluLou: Poor Lee!17:53

LibraryJim: worthy of the Three Stooges17:53

Rush: (“cuckoo…”)17:53

Rush: Yes, LJ!17:53

angel & fox: “One moment please”: THAT line i use ALMOST DAILY, occasionally TRYING to explain—but These Kids Just Don’t Get It.17:53

danventure: Indeed, LJ!17:54

Nothere: You’d think at some point the police would station people in front of all light switches in a room.17:54

Rush: You referred to the “Five fingers” comment, LJ?17:54

angel & fox: Powder….mmmm…17:54

HonoluLou: Hmmm, watercrest sandwiches, yum!17:54

Louise: photos are magical17:54

Rush: Or…the woozy cop?17:54

HonoluLou: Time to burn one!17:55

angel & fox: NICE grain-focus!!17:55

Rush: Running gag…asking for a cigarette.17:55

LibraryJim: This guy sure wants a cigarette17:55

Rush: ready the can…17:55

Phil: CUE THE CAN17:55

HonoluLou: I hate it, when you can’t get into your hotel because of a dead body!17:55

angel & fox: Tin can, huh?17:55

Rush: (Tincan…)17:55

Frosty: ?17:56

Phil: TYSM Rush17:56

angel & fox: He’s steamed NOW.17:56

LibraryJim: A New York City problem, Lou17:56

Rush: You are welcome…!17:56

Nothere: Do you call the bellhop or manager in these cases?17:56

HonoluLou: Haha, LJ, so true.17:56

LibraryJim: housekeeping17:56

Rush: :)17:56

Phil: We’re having total confusion of roles here tonight! 17:57

Rush: “Hit tack on cranium.”17:57

angel & fox: Not a SINGLE Show Tune yet, though!!17:57

Rush: Just for the dance scene earlier.17:57

Louise: stop shaking her fur17:57

angel & fox: Confusion ain’t confusion if it ain’t total. Good obs, Phil.17:57

Rush: yes, Angel!17:58

HonoluLou: PLEASE, you’ll damage the muychandise!17:58

Frosty: Lee changed plan by being there. Good for him17:58

angel & fox: HluluLu: 17:58

HonoluLou: More poison… Love it!17:58

Rush: Not a wise way to enter a room full of people!17:59

angel & fox: “No poison more deadly than ink”!!17:59

Phil: Keep your finger OFF THE TRIGGER17:59

Phil: You too Harold.17:59

angel & fox: So close you could hear the mice dance.17:59

Phil: I believe that guy (the editor) was in a Thin Man movie.17:59

LibraryJim: Gun in back pocket often prove to be pain in the a…..17:59

HonoluLou: Phil, I think you are right!18:00

Rush: I would not doubt that, phil.18:00

angel & fox: Which Thin Man, Phil? I’m a fan.18:00

Rush: we see our Chan actors pop up in so many films! I get a kick out of catching them on screen outside of the Chan pictures!18:00

HonoluLou: Rush, who is the actor (the editor)?18:01

angel & fox: I’ll sell him MY diary!18:01

LibraryJim: don’t call me ‘chief’.18:01

Rush: :)18:01

angel & fox: WHO’S BILLIE BRONSON? ask 8 million Yew Norkers.18:01

angel & fox: “Murdoch”!18:02

Rush: Probably so, Angel!18:02

HonoluLou: SWELL!18:02

angel & fox: They’ve got phones that jingle jangle jingle.18:02

Phil: “Another Thin Man”18:02

Phil: Sorry, Angel, took awhile to find.18:03

Rush: “Murder case like revolving door – when one side close, other side open.’18:03

angel & fox: How many different BATHROBES appear in The Canon?18:03

LibraryJim: J. Edward Bromberg = Murdock18:03

Rush: MANY, Angel!18:03

angel & fox: PREWAR PILLOWS look sumptuous.18:03

Rush: Yes, LJ.18:03

Phil: And comb your hair again Lee, before you go to bed.18:04

LibraryJim: Blacklisted by the House UnAmerican activities commission for taking the 5th instead of answering quesitons18:04

Nothere: Another Thin man? Just follow Jimmy Stweart.18:04

Louise: punch shoot18:04

angel & fox: J. “EDWARD”? COULDN’T have been a certain J. EDGAR, could it? Often nearby Hwood, at Santa Anita—? It’s POSSIBLE—18:04

Rush: Headlines!18:04

angel & fox: —and this OTHER J.E. DID like to wear, well, many outfits.18:05

Rush: I still recall newpaper sellers on the street.18:05

Frosty: Nothing tangible18:05

HonoluLou: “Speed never misses”18:06

angel & fox: I think THIS guy has REACHED his (Peter Principle) LEVEL OF INCOMPETENCE.18:06

angel & fox: I wanna shoot him MORE than anybody else does.18:06

Rush: So he says, lou!18:06

angel & fox: Light up a Lucky.18:07

HonoluLou: The ole Paraffin test! 18:07

Nothere: Sorry Angel can’t give you an alibi. I’m not here.18:07

Phil: Parafin test? After such a long amount of time?18:07

angel & fox: Let’s see if he’s got any paraffin.18:07

Rush: paraffin test – A chemical test that is used to indicate the presence of nitrates, which are found in gunpowder. 18:07

HonoluLou: The things you know, Rush!18:08

Phil: Not if he worked in a fertilizer plant.18:08

HonoluLou: Ah, that’s how you knew :)18:08
