Audio problem: When Lester (Jack Warden) comes downstairs, his daughter Lorna (Carrie Fisher) is talking on the telephone. We hear what she says, but she is not saying those words. (00:31:15)

Felicia: Oh god, Lester you are a miserable human being. You're not helping anybody! You're just twisting arms here for a lot of silly sons of bitches who are all out for themselves. You're kidding yourself if you think your new business partner is going to keep his hands off your girl. Or if she's going to keep her hands off him.
