Turncoats are not necessarily weather proof. I'll check them.

Hat check girl: Hoping the weather would change did not work out. I girl's got to make a living. ...

Who, me? That's why I am working here, checking hats.

Oh that? I am not sure. The Department of Homeland Security told me I must use that machine when I check hats. Seems it is real good at killing lice. Seems no living thing can survive it... Mold, fungus... Oh but, I talk too much... Your hat please.

You ask a lot of questions. ... A girl cannot be too careful. May I check you coat as well? ... No. You may not wear it in there... I don't know. Union rules? Safety? Fire codes? ...
