0:05 Jane:          “Jane, yes.”

0:07 Frank:        “How you doin Jane, rremember me? Frank from 81. I used to go crazy up there in the store, dance for all the customers?”

0:12 Jane:          “Oh, yes, yes, yes, yes.”

0:13 Frank:        “How you doin, everything…”

0:15Jane:           “Fine, and you?”

0:15 Frank:        “How’s business, good?”

0:17 Jane:          “Fine, yes.”

0:17 Frank:        “Ah, great, I’m glad to hear that, Janie. Listen, I’m just asking Mary there, or Sally, what was her name? Mary?

0:22 Jane:          “Sally, Sally.”

0:23 Frank:        “Ah, Sally, geez, that’s, yeah. She’s telling me that no problem, she’d get me in that 40, 40 gauge steel and make me up a set of steel shoes, because I don’t know if she briefed you on my, uh, my little cute, there, it’s like a little, you know, a humdinger. I get up there, I do a little dance on the old barbecue for the Memorial Day weekend, and I throw a few kicks into the roasting pig, you know, put on a big show, sometimes get a little hot barbecue sauce all over my foot, there, you know.

0:48 Jane:          “So, you need something with a steel sole.”

0:50 Frank:        “Yeah, right, a steel, no, no, yeah, right, but that’s where we’re goin, a steel sole, that’s right there, and if you could maybe like a special little, like a leather piece that comes up to block the old shin there, because when I hoof the old pig roast in there, the hot barbecue sauce, I don’t need that all over my legs, if you could do me that favor, please.

1:08 Jane:          “Mm-hmm.

1:08 Frank:        “You know, we’re all going to be sittin out there, we have a good time, the family, we have some meats, we’re all sittin out there you under the sun, and I’m doing a cute little skip like dance up on the old barbecue there, heh?

1:18 Jane:          “But you need that tomorrow…”

1:21 Frank:        “Don’t you remember the time I came I told you that back in 81 there, I was doing the same old gig there…”

1:26 Jane:          “Yes, I remember that.”

1:26 Frank:        “Remember that? That was awful. I told you when I slipped off the barbecue and I had the little silly bikini on me and it ripped the bikini right off and I had my ass all charred up on the barbecue there.”

1:34 Jane:          “But I don’t know if I’m going to be able to get the shoe for you in time, I don’t know.”

1:37 Frank:        “Oh, you don’t remember back when I told you that?”

1:38 Jane:          “I remember, yes, I don’t know if I can get the shoe for you in time.”

1:43 Frank:        “Remember I came in the store and I showed you how my ass had all those burns all over the side of my rear end there? Don’t you remember me?

1:49 Jane:          “But I don’t know I can get the shoe for you.”

1:49 Frank:        “Yeah, yeah, that was bad, ooh, the stink coming off me there.”

1:52 Jane:          “I don’t know if I can get the shoes for you, I don’t think so, I need a longer time than that.”

1:57 Frank:        “Oh geez, you know what I’ll do, I’ll come and show you a prototype there, because the other ones, they just weren’t holding up there, but you people always do a wonderful job there, Jane…”

2:06 Jane:          “Uh-huh.”

2:07 Frank:        “And you’ve been doin great for a long time now, and I’m very, very, very proud of you, okay? So, I’ll come in and I’ll show you my prototype, I might hoof you a little bit there so you get the feel of it, then we’ll see where we go from there.”

2:17 Jane:          “Well, I don’t think, we don’t have enough time to make it up. No use comin, because I don’t have enough time to make the shoe for you. ?

2:22 Frank:        “Alright, well then I’ll tell you what, we can make it out of wood first and then we’ll see where we go? Okay Jane? Alright, I’ll see you when I come in with my shoe.”

2:29 Jane:          “Okay then, bye now.”

2:30 Frank:        “Alright there, sweetheart, right.”
