“You know you don't have to act with me, Steve. You don't have to say anything, and you don't have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together, and blow.”
Jules Furthman (1888-1960), U.S. screenwriter, William Faulkner (1897-1962), U.S. novelist, and Howard Hawks. Marie Browning (Lauren Bacall), in To Have And To Have Not (film), spoken to Harry Morgan (Humphrey Bogart) (1944).

SUBJECT: Warbling bird whistles
I recently did some re-organization of my library card catalog cabinet. While I was doing so, StellaDella found these bird whistles in one of the drawers. I think I purchased them from the Botanical Garden gift shop last June. You just fill them with water and blow. It is amazing how much they sound like a real bird. Even the cats stop and pay attention when they hear the warbling.
