Carpenter Foreman: On them second floor lintels between the lally columns, do you want we should rabbet them or not?
[Long pause as Jim and Muriel look at him with puzzled frowns on their faces]
Jim Blandings: The, uh, second floor lallies?
Carpenter Foreman: Second floor lintels between the lallies.
Jim Blandings: Oh, the lintels between the lallies?
Carpenter Foreman: Yeah, from the blueprints you can't tell. You want they should be rabbeted?
Jim Blandings: No, no. I guess not.
Carpenter Foreman: Okay. You're the doctor.
[He calls out to his workers]
Carpenter Foreman: Hey fellas. If you got any of them rabbeted lintels set, rip 'em out.
[Sound of nails being pried out, and scene of pieces of wood dropping onto the floor around Jim and Muriel]
