Two Old-Timers Summary

Pat Hobby runs into Phil Macedon on the street. Phil was a star at the studio at the same time Pat was a successful writer. Unfortunately, Phil does not remember Pat. Pat makes a scene, trying to get Phil to remember him, causing a cop to come along and arrest them both for public intoxication. While they are waiting in the jail for the police supervisor to arrive, the arresting cop mentions how he saw Phil in a war picture and how a particular scene helped the cop's wife understand his experiences in the war. Pat announces that he was on set the day that scene was shot and that the director had simply dropped Phil into a hole and filmed him attempting to get out, giving the scene its realistic feel. Pat insists that Phil is just another old-timer, just like him.
