[kwlug-disc] dumb debian question: install local package, get deps from net?

   possibly the first in a series of silly debian questions since i've  
never been a heavy debian user but am about to start.

   i have a local .deb file, which has uninstalled dependencies.  i  
would like the variation of

   # dpkg -i blah.deb

that would install that local file, but wander off to the net for any  
deps.  i've tried a number of dpkg and apt-get variations, but haven't  
found the right one.
