Hazel Quits [1.29] (script by Keith Fowler and Phil Leslie)Edit

[Attorney George Baxter's (Mr. B's) client Mr. Wheeler threatened to remove George from a major project if George didn't get rid of the Baxter's family maid Hazel who had publicly opposed the project. So Hazel and George's wife Dorothy pretended Hazel quit and went to work for their neighbors the Johnsons.]
Hazel: Oh sure, and then I'll fix your dinner over at the Johnsons.
Dorothy: Now wait a minute. Now why do we have to go to all the trouble of keeping it a secret from George. Why don't we just tell him?
Hazel: Oh no. He's got to believe I'm really working for the Johnsons otherwise he won't tell Mr. Wheeler that I quit, unless he believes it. You know, Mr. B's a lawyer he's very ethical.
Dorothy: Oh yes, that's true.
Hazel: But we're women (chuckles); we don't have to worry about stuff like that, do we?

[Hazel takes another piece of the pie she made.]
Hazel: It's a shame to have terrific homemade pie go to waste.
George: You always have been modest, Hazel.
Hazel: Oh, what's so good about being modest? If your horn has a good tone, blow it.
