I was walking down Madison Avenue and I saw a very good-looking tie in a
shop window. So I went in. Before I could say anything the manager said,
"Oh, Tony Randall! In my store! Please, just a minute, wait, wait, I gotta
call my wife--she'll never believe me!"

He calls her up and says to me, "Here, say hello, anything, talk to my
wife. Say anything!" He flattered me so much I bought the tie, bought six
shirts. I didn't have enough money. I said, "Will you accept my check?" He
said, "Do you have any identification?"
