Karen: Don't look now, but you're not the only columnist in the room.
Hal: . You mean Ed Hollister? He's no columnist - he's a vulture that somehow learned to type.
Karen: Oh, he's coming over here. Now, Hal, no cracks.
Hal: Why should there be cracks? After all, Ed and I are the best of enemies.
Ed Hollister: (to Karen and Hal) Well, beauty and the beast.
Hal: Hi, Ed. What's old?
Ed Hollister: I'd don't know. I haven't been reading your column lately.
