Bob Hope speaking: 'I'm very thrilled at this naturally and I just want to say it couldn't have happened to a nicer fellow. Also very thrilled that you included the lovely Dolores in this particular presentation, Mr Symington. Thank you very, very much. If you have a couple of little ones for the kids. (Laughter). They'll never let us get back into the house without a little something, so cook up something. We hate to rush but we have to go over to the navy. They have a little something for us too'.
