This spot is taken, Bub. Ha ha ha.
Taxi! Hey, taxi!
Coming right up, Bub.
The Ritz hotel, son. And step on it.
Taxi, Mister?
I said the Ritz hotel, dagnabbit.
Yipe!

That rube was a healthy tipper.
Taxi! Yoohoo, taxi!
I'm gettin' this fare.
23 Skidoo Street, driver.
Woops-a-daisy. A ga ga ga ga.
Why that double-crossin' fare snatcher.
Woooooo!

Uh oh. A train's comin'.
Mmm, there's something fishy going on around here.
I've had enough.
No fare is getting away from me. Oh, no.
You ain't eatin' no spinach in this picture.
