The Flying Scotsman -
  always crowded with
thrifty Scots -- bent on
     saving time.

3
"You made a splendid
 run, driver - here's a
  bar of chocolate."

4
"Give it to him, lady
 - it's not my kind of 
         bar."

5
"Crow -- drinking on
 duty is an offence I
 cannot overlook. You 
   are discharged."

6
"I'll get even with you 
       for this!"

7
"Don't worry, Bob -
 you did quite right in
 reporting the matter."

8
"That picture was taken
 the day I made my first
 run on the Flying Scots-
 man, thirty years ago,
         sir."

9
"I remember, Bob -
 I was just a kid in
  the office, then."

10
"And now you're retiring.
 The last run to-morrow
 -- then a well-earned 
        pension."

11
"Thirty years on the road,
 and never an accident
 - that's a record to be 
        proud of."

12
"Trust me to pick
 the Fannies from
    the flops."

13
"Take my advice, Jim,
 girls will get you into
 trouble - I've had some."

14
"I've been sacked."

15
"Well, you asked for 
 all you got - ain't you
      satisfied?"

16
"Here comes old Bob,
 the globe-trotter - been
 travelling all his life and
 never got farther than
      Scotland."

17
"Anyhow, my boy, I've
  always got there."

18
"I'm sorry for what 
  happened, Crow."

19
"You'll have a lot to
 be sorry for - when
 I'm through with you."

20
"Another victory for
 prohibition - they've
 given me your run."

21
"Cheer up, Bob - -
 to-morrow you and 
 I'll go roamin' in the
     gloamin'!"

22
"It's an honour to get
 the run - make the
 best of your chance."

23
"Never play with fire,
       my girl."

24
"Seven years bad luck."

25
"I'm not superstitious, 
        but - "

26
"My fireman, Crow, was
 sacked to-day because I
 reported him for drinking
 - and I'm afraid he means
         trouble."

27
"Have you ever seen a
 shooting star misfire?"

28
"Do you suppose I paid
 to come in here just
 to decorate the place?"

29
"Your face wouldn't
 decorate the back of
      a bus!"

30
"My husband!"

31
"Do you wear him in 
  your button hole?"

32
"Did I see you dancing
    with my wife?"

33
"He's been dancing with
   me all the evening."

34
"Why did you say that?"

35
"I felt sorry for you -
 I saw you were afraid."

36
"Fetch the police."

37
"Where is your partner?"

38
"He's not my partner
 - I've never met him
       before."

39
"I'm a man of honour
 - and I'm ready to fight
        for it."

40
"Two ham sandwiches
    - one each."

41
"One brown ale and
 one stone ginger --
 the brown ale for me."

42
"If I were to ask you 
 nicely, do you think
 you could forgive me?"

43
"This is a cheap looking
 outfit - I hope the food's
        all right."

44
"I've never found a place
 yet that comes up to the
 New Grande in Piccadilly."

45
"Do you go there?"

46
"I drop in there some-
 times with the heads
   of our railway."

47
"Are you on the railway?"

48
"I'll say I am! Chief
 Engineer - I travel all
    over the place."

49
"We look like being friends.
 Won't you tell me your 
          name?"

50
"Joan."

51
"Joan? Joan what?"

52
"Joan Gilbey."

53
"I guessed you'd have a
 pretty name like that."

54
"Mine's Jim - Joan and
 Jim go well together."

55
Fate takes a hand 
when boy meets girl

56
"So this is where you
 live - looks a cosy little
         place."

57
"We'd better say 'Good-
        night'."

58
"I didn't mean that.
 Besides - Dad might
      see us."

59
"But he can't see through
        the door."

60
"He's not in. He's gone
     to his Lodge."

61
"Then let's go inside for
        a minute."

62
"It's early yet - and
 I know those Lodge
      meetings."

63
"I'd better put the light
           on."

64
"Be quiet. All the neigh-
    bours will hear."

65
"That's a good photo
       of you."

66
"Can I have it? I'm an
   expert on photos."

67
"You really must go. I'm
 so afraid Dad will come
          home."

68
"Tell me, Joan - where
 have you been all my 
        life?"

69
"How many other girls
 have you said that to?"

70
"I didn't know you smoked, 
          Joan."

71
"I don't, Dad."

72
"Oh, I forgot. I had one
 given to me at the dance
        to-night."

73
"Are you hiding something
        from me?"

74
"Why didn't you tell me
  you had a man here?"

75
"Because I know what
 you are - you'd only
 have made a scene."

76
"And quite right, too -
 a man who would sneak
 in and out of my house
 like that is not worthy
        of you."

77
"And if ever I set eyes
     on him, I'll -"
