[picks up ringing phone] Ed Rooney's office.

[disguising his voice] This is George Peterson.

Oh! Uh, please hold. [to Mr. Rooney] What do ya know? It's Mr. Peterson. You still want his daytime number? [realizing] Oh.

Mr. Rooney:
[on the phone] Ed Rooney.

Ed. This is George Peterson.

Mr. Rooney:
How are you today, sir?

Well, we've had a bit of bad luck this morning as you may have heard.

Mr. Rooney:
Yeah, I heard, and, ooh, I'm all broken up. Boy, what a blow.

Yeah. Yeah. Well, uh, it's been a tough morning, and, uh, we got a lot of family business to take care of, so if you wouldn't mind excusing Sloane, I'd appreciate it.

Mr. Rooney:
Uh, sure. Y'know, I'd be happy to. Yeah. You, uh, you-you just produce a corpse, and, uh, I'll release Sloane. I wanna see this dead grandmother first hand.

Mr. Rooney:

Uh, uh, Ed, I-I'm sorry, did-- Did you say you wanted to see a body?

Mr. Rooney:
Yeah, that's right, just, uh, roll her old bones on over here, and I'll dig up your daughter. You know, that's school policy.


Mr. Rooney:
Uh, was this your mother?

Uh, n-no, my wife's mother.

[picks up ringing phone] Ed Rooney's office.

Hi, this is Ferris Bueller. Can I speak to Mr. Rooney, please? Thank you.

[caught off-guard] Uh... hold.

Mr. Rooney:
Tell ya what, dipshit. You don't like my policies, you can come on down here and smooch my big ol' white butt.

[loud whisper] Ed!

Mr. Rooney:
Pucker up, Buttercup. [to Grace; quietly] What?

Ferris Bueller's on line 2.
