NARRATOR: What could be more symbolic of America

0:01:060:01:08

than today's schoolgirl?

0:01:080:01:10

Intelligent, restrained, dignified...

BIG BAND MUSIC PLAYS

0:01:130:01:15

Oh...

0:01:200:01:21

We still haven't gone back far enough.

0:01:210:01:25

Let's look at the girl of 1913.

0:01:250:01:27

HORN HOOTS

ENGINE BACKFIRES

0:01:310:01:33

Let's go further back, shall we? The girl of 1905.

0:01:330:01:38

Now, there WAS a girl.

0:01:380:01:40

Demure, sedate, obedient.

0:01:400:01:43

I'm sure we can do better than this if we just put our minds to it.

0:01:440:01:48

-It isn't very good, is it?

-A good artist isn't made overnight.

0:01:480:01:52

You've only been with us a short time.

0:01:520:01:55

I'll help you when we begin soup plates.

0:01:550:01:58

Miss Ingram, can't I start my REAL art classes?

0:01:580:02:01

There's no nicer accomplishment or better foundation for a woman than china painting.

0:02:010:02:07

I've got a foundation. I've been painting at home for years.

0:02:070:02:11

Let me see, now. I don't know where else I'd put you.

0:02:110:02:15

What about the life class?

0:02:150:02:17

Oh, that's too advanced. Next year, perhaps.

0:02:170:02:20

I take the girls out in the country and we all do a landscape.

0:02:200:02:25

Cows, trees, some charming sycamores not far away.

0:02:250:02:29

Miss Ingram, we don't understand each other.

0:02:290:02:33

I mean a life class. The human figure.

0:02:330:02:35

Rembrandt says it's the basis of all design.

0:02:350:02:39

That's what I need. My anatomy's terrible.

0:02:390:02:42

The human figure?

0:02:420:02:44

You mean...unclothed?

0:02:440:02:47

-Certainly.

-Uh! Miss Sheldon!

0:02:470:02:50

Oh...

0:02:510:02:53

Miss Sheldon, I want to have a talk with you.

0:02:550:02:59

Go into my office.

0:02:590:03:00

TRAIN WHISTLE HOOTS

0:03:000:03:02

-Good morning, Dr Sheldon.

-Good morning.

0:03:020:03:04

TRAIN APPROACHES

0:03:040:03:06

-Hello, Papa.

-Hello, Dinah.

0:03:170:03:19

I'm glad you're here, dear, but your telegram didn't make it clear

0:03:200:03:25

why you're home ten days before your vacation.

0:03:250:03:27

Anything wrong?

0:03:280:03:30

Well, sort of.

0:03:300:03:32

Suspended?

0:03:340:03:35

-Expelled.

-TRAIN WHISTLE BLOWS

0:03:370:03:40

How's Momma?

0:03:500:03:51

Fine.

0:03:520:03:53

And Gene?

0:03:540:03:56

He's fine, too.

0:03:560:03:58

So are Mark and Sis. So is Ada.

0:03:580:04:00

So am I.

0:04:000:04:01

How are the neighbours?

0:04:030:04:05

Tom's fine.

0:04:060:04:08

How are YOU?

0:04:090:04:10

Fine.

0:04:120:04:13

Papa, if this was the first time I'd had trouble,

0:04:150:04:18

you wouldn't think it was my fault.

0:04:180:04:20

I don't think so now, dear, unless you say it is.

0:04:200:04:24

-She called me immoral.

-Who did?

0:04:240:04:27

Miss Ingram. Merely because I wanted to paint the human figure.

0:04:270:04:30

If I can't be a good painter,

0:04:300:04:33

there's nothing in life worth going on for.

0:04:330:04:35

Any other basis for this charge of immorality?

0:04:360:04:40

Yes. I said two petticoats were enough.

0:04:400:04:43

She said no respectable woman wears less than five.

0:04:430:04:46

And that I shouldn't have gone to a political meeting.

0:04:460:04:50

I said, "How can women be intelligent if they don't know about politics and economics?"

0:04:500:04:57

She said I wasn't there to be intelligent, but to be a lady.

0:04:570:05:00

I said I didn't have to learn that...

0:05:000:05:02

SHE CONTINUES TALKING

0:05:020:05:05

HORSE NEIGHS

0:05:120:05:14

..Then she called the debate off, after I'd spent DAYS writing my speech!

0:05:140:05:19

It was about votes for women.

0:05:190:05:21

She said I was immoral,

0:05:210:05:23

merely because I went to a political meeting alone.

0:05:230:05:27

She said I was to write her a letter of apology and stay in my room on Sundays.

0:05:270:05:33

I said I wasn't immoral, and I couldn't write the apology,

0:05:330:05:36

and she said I was and I must, so...here I am.

0:05:360:05:40

I don't see how anyone could have expelled you, Di.

0:05:430:05:46

I don't see how they could have gotten a word in edgeways to do it!

0:05:460:05:49

No, Papa.

0:05:490:05:50

Dinah, I... don't like you being expelled.

0:05:530:05:57

Miss Ingram's right. Immorality takes many forms.

0:05:580:06:01

Yes, Papa.

0:06:010:06:03

But I don't believe anyone should be punished or expelled

0:06:030:06:05

because of the difference between two petticoats and five.

0:06:050:06:08

Nor for going to a political meeting.

0:06:080:06:10

But I would prefer you not to go alone to them.

0:06:120:06:14

Yes, Papa.

0:06:180:06:20

-Hello, Momma!

-Hello, dear!

0:06:250:06:27

Well, you look all right.

0:06:290:06:32

Is anything wrong at school, dear?

0:06:320:06:34

I was...expelled.

0:06:340:06:36

Expelled? Dinah...but what for?

0:06:360:06:39

For er...three petticoats, Lily.

0:06:390:06:42

-Why do you think she's home before vacation?

-Shhh!

0:06:470:06:50

Children... Andrew... Sit down.

0:06:500:06:53

Everything's ready.

0:06:530:06:55

Gene... Mark...

0:07:100:07:12

Sis...

0:07:120:07:13

In order to save you from a severe case of indigestion

0:07:150:07:18

caused by prolonged curiosity...

0:07:180:07:21

..your sister Dinah has been expelled.

0:07:220:07:25

-CHILDREN ALL TALK AT ONCE

-Grace.

0:07:250:07:26

HALTING TROMBONE PLAYING

0:07:300:07:32

TROMBONE: "My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean"

0:07:330:07:36

Gene, can't you play anything else?

0:07:490:07:53

Oh...ishkabibble.

0:07:530:07:55

SUDDEN BURST OF TROMBONE

0:07:580:08:00

Come on, Miss Dinah.

0:08:040:08:06

Your momma ain't paying me 50 cents a day to sit still.

0:08:060:08:09

-I'll be done in a minute, Ada.

-The washing won't be.

0:08:090:08:12

Do you mean to say we only pay you 50 cents a day?

0:08:120:08:15

Why, that's wage slavery.

0:08:150:08:18

Things will change when we women can vote. You'll be emancipated.

0:08:180:08:23

Been emancipated.

0:08:230:08:25

Dinah!

0:08:260:08:28

-Haven't I asked you?

-I need models and I can't afford to pay them.

0:08:300:08:33

-Can't you find someone who will sit still for nothing?

-Only if they're unconscious!

0:08:330:08:38

When I unpacked for you, I found...

0:08:390:08:41

Where did these things come from?

0:08:420:08:44

-Boxing gloves, Momma.

-Yes, I know.

0:08:440:08:48

A man on the train helped me with my case.

0:08:480:08:51

I started talking to him and he turned out to be James J Jeffries.

0:08:510:08:55

He gave me the gloves as a souvenir.

0:08:570:08:59

He even showed me his special punch he used on Bill O'Brien.

0:08:590:09:04

Dinah, nice girls don't speak to strange men.

0:09:040:09:07

Ada... I think we need more starch in these shirts.

0:09:070:09:10

Yes! >

0:09:100:09:11

Momma, didn't you hear what I said? I met James J Jeffries.

0:09:110:09:15

Yes, I heard you. And I want you to remember not to talk to strangers.

0:09:150:09:20

Momma, a man like that isn't a stranger.

0:09:200:09:23

He's the world's champion.

0:09:230:09:26

When a man reaches that eminence, he's not a stranger.

0:09:260:09:29

He belongs to his public.

0:09:290:09:30

When I'm a famous painter, I'll belong to my public.

0:09:300:09:35

Great artists never lose touch with the little people.

0:09:350:09:38

It would comfort me if you didn't lose touch

0:09:380:09:40

with the dustpan and broom.

0:09:400:09:42

Start with the back porch, dear.

0:09:420:09:44

Go and put these hideous leather paws in the hall closet.

0:09:440:09:48

Yes, Momma.

0:09:480:09:49

Oh!

0:10:270:10:28

I thought your school vacation didn't start for some time yet.

0:10:320:10:36

Well, it... It doesn't. I...

0:10:360:10:39

I came home early.

0:10:390:10:40

Any difficulties?

0:10:400:10:42

Well, er...in a way.

0:10:420:10:44

Well, er...in what way?

0:10:440:10:47

I was...expelled.

0:10:470:10:49

Hm.

0:10:490:10:51

Is there a connection between your expulsion

0:10:510:10:54

and those instruments of fisticuffs?

0:10:540:10:56

Oh, these? Oh, no. A friend of mine gave them to me.

0:10:560:11:01

Ah, a friend.

0:11:010:11:03

James J Jeffries, no doubt?

0:11:030:11:05

Why, yes. How did you know?

0:11:050:11:07

I have my ways. I hav...!

0:11:070:11:10

Di! What are you doing home?

0:11:280:11:30

Hello, Tom.

0:11:300:11:32

Did they close school early or something?

0:11:330:11:35

No, I...grew dissatisfied with certain things

0:11:350:11:39

at Miss Ingram's seminary and terminated my stay there.

0:11:390:11:43

Oh? What things?

0:11:430:11:44

The artistic temperament

0:11:440:11:47

doesn't need mundane reasons for decisions, Tom.

0:11:470:11:50

-No, I guess not.

-How's your aunt?

0:11:500:11:53

Fine. She doesn't like me working at Steuben's after class,

0:11:530:11:57

but I need the money.

0:11:570:11:59

I didn't think you liked working with horses.

0:11:590:12:02

Not in the stable. The garage.

0:12:020:12:04

Well, I'd better go.

0:12:040:12:07

-I'll see you at choir practice.

-Yeah.

0:12:070:12:09

I'll meet you at Steuben's.

0:12:090:12:10

No, Di. I'm walking Bernice Eckert over.

0:12:110:12:15

-Who?

-Bernice Eckert. They moved into Dean Street.

0:12:150:12:19

I'll introduce you. She's really keen. You'll like her.

0:12:190:12:24

I'm sure I will.

0:12:240:12:26

She's so...continental, sort of.

0:12:260:12:29

She's got that way, even when she just walks.

0:12:290:12:32

I'm anxious to see if you agree.

0:12:320:12:34

Well, I gotta go to work. See you later. Bye.

0:12:340:12:38

Bye, Tom.

0:12:380:12:40

Continental!

0:12:520:12:54

THEY SING A SLOW HYMN

0:12:540:12:57

# ..the lamb of God

0:12:570:13:01

# Before our father's throne... #

0:13:010:13:06

No, no, no, children. No.

0:13:060:13:08

When you sing that line, you mustn't just say words.

0:13:080:13:11

You must really stand before the throne.

0:13:110:13:14

You must be up there. Give me that up-there feel.

0:13:140:13:19

Now, then. Once again.

0:13:190:13:21

Make me feel transported to a place in the heavenly cloud.

0:13:210:13:25

# Before our father's throne

0:13:250:13:31

# We poor unite in prayer

0:13:310:13:36

# Our fears, our hopes

0:13:360:13:39

# Our aims are one

0:13:390:13:43

# Our comfort and our cares

0:13:430:13:50

# We share our mutual woes

0:13:500:13:56

# Our mutual burdens bear

0:13:560:14:01

# And offer for each other's woes

0:14:010:14:08

# A sympathising tear. #

0:14:080:14:15

Well? Don't you agree with me?

0:14:170:14:19

She's very attractive. I understand why you feel as you do.

0:14:190:14:22

You know, Bernice is very deep.

0:14:230:14:26

She has moods, I mean.

0:14:260:14:28

Sometimes I don't understand her.

0:14:280:14:31

Like not letting me walk home with her now and not telling me why.

0:14:310:14:34

If a person has anything to say, they should say it.

0:14:340:14:37

Yes, but you're different.

0:14:370:14:39

I don't see why.

0:14:410:14:43

Well, you come to the point.

0:14:430:14:44

I merely don't believe in stooping to subterfuge.

0:14:440:14:48

You always say what's on your mind.

0:14:480:14:51

-I'll bet that's what happened at school.

-Partly.

0:14:510:14:54

That's what I thought. Well, are you going to paint here?

0:14:540:14:58

Heavens, no. There's only one place to study true art Paris.

0:14:580:15:03

-Paris?

-Of course.

0:15:030:15:05

I think your family would rather have you marry a nice fella

0:15:070:15:10

and settle right down here in Baltimore.

0:15:100:15:14

I'd rather commit suicide.

0:15:140:15:16

You've certainly changed since you've been away at school.

0:15:260:15:30

You have to know what you want in this world.

0:15:300:15:33

-Yeah. Well, I think I know what

-I

-want,

0:15:330:15:35

but...I don't know how Bernice feels about it.

0:15:350:15:39

We're very lucky, really.

0:15:390:15:41

-Why?

-Knowing what we want.

0:15:410:15:44

Most people don't.

0:15:440:15:45

But I have a long, arduous road ahead of me.

0:15:450:15:49

Painting is what you want. You stick with it.

0:15:490:15:52

If I can help you, just say the word.

0:15:520:15:54

Thanks, Tom. If I can help you get what YOU want,

0:15:540:15:57

I'll be only too glad.

0:15:570:15:58

Well, thanks.

0:15:580:16:00

You know, I've always felt like you were my best friend.

0:16:060:16:09

Talking to you is just like talking to another man.

0:16:090:16:12

I'm certainly glad.

0:16:120:16:14

-Well, goodbye.

-Bye.

0:16:140:16:16

Making flutter eyes...

0:16:170:16:19

Dropping hymn books...

0:16:190:16:21

-­

-Come in.

0:16:280:16:29

Oh, you're still busy.

0:16:300:16:32

It's all right, Dan.

0:16:320:16:34

-Mr Fletcher, our senior warden. Mrs Warford.

-How do you do?

0:16:340:16:39

Joined the parish, Mrs Warford? Well, that's fine.

0:16:390:16:43

I like nothing better than to see a prosperous couple come in.

0:16:430:16:47

Yes. Mrs...

0:16:470:16:49

There's nothing finer for a family

0:16:490:16:51

than their own permanent pew with brass plate attached.

0:16:510:16:56

The contributions go to our mortgage fund,

0:16:560:16:58

which can always bear up to welcome additions.

0:16:580:17:03

Well, some day, of course, we'd like to, but...right now...

0:17:030:17:08

Aye.

0:17:080:17:10

Go ahead, Andrew. I'll sit and wait till you're finished.

0:17:110:17:15

I won't take long, Dr Sheldon.

0:17:150:17:17

They say a tale of woe is soon told.

0:17:170:17:20

Though I don't know why it falls so much harder on some than others.

0:17:200:17:24

-Didn't your husband get the job?

-Yes, but now he can't start.

0:17:240:17:29

-Why?

-The tool kit you had the machine shop lend him?

0:17:290:17:32

-Gone.

-You mean...stolen?

0:17:320:17:35

The whole box. And he can't work without them.

0:17:350:17:40

And a new set will cost 20.

0:17:400:17:42

DAN CLEARS THROAT

0:17:420:17:44

We just haven't got the money, Dr Sheldon.

0:17:440:17:46

And if he can't work, he can't get paid,

0:17:460:17:49

and then what about the children?

0:17:490:17:50

-Oh, I don't know how these things...

-Yes, yes...

-Ahem!

0:17:500:17:55

There they sat, on the porch.

0:17:550:17:58

The next morning, gone. Every hammer and saw.

0:17:580:18:02

A new set is...20.

0:18:020:18:04

We'll pay you back in no time, Dr Sheldon.

0:18:060:18:08

Ah...hem(!)

0:18:080:18:10

Out of Ed's first pay cheque.

0:18:100:18:12

We don't like to be spongers, Dr Sheldon.

0:18:120:18:15

DAN SPLUTTERS

0:18:150:18:17

You just wouldn't believe the things that happen to us.

0:18:180:18:22

First, my cousin got sick...

0:18:220:18:24

Let's pray heaven favours you more these next months.

0:18:240:18:28

Oh, thank you, Dr Sheldon.

0:18:310:18:33

< And you'll never regret it. Never.

0:18:330:18:36

And thank YOU, Mr Fletcher.

0:18:360:18:39

And er...goodbye.

0:18:390:18:42

Goodbye.

0:18:420:18:43

DAN CLEARS THROAT

0:18:430:18:46

Aye, 'tis a blessed emotion, charity.

0:18:460:18:50

But sometimes, your generosity puzzles me.

0:18:500:18:53

The cheque can't be covered.

0:18:540:18:56

It's not drawn on the charity account, Dan.

0:18:560:19:00

It's from the Van Laden Memorial Fund.

0:19:000:19:02

But Mrs Van Laden left the money

0:19:020:19:04

to buy a stained glass window to her husband's memory.

0:19:040:19:07

We'll pay it back from the Easter offerings.

0:19:070:19:10

It's practically malfeasance.

0:19:100:19:13

I doubt the vestrymen will like it.

0:19:130:19:17

These things didnae happen in Dr Reed's time here.

0:19:170:19:19

I know, Dan. I'll never be the man he was.

0:19:190:19:22

I'm not denying you've done some nice work.

0:19:220:19:26

Many's the time I said those very words to my wife.

0:19:260:19:29

"The pastor," I says to Mary, "is a good man."

0:19:310:19:34

-But with faults.

-Aye.

0:19:340:19:36

Well, now, as to the books...

0:19:380:19:39

Start here on the pew holders' reference.

0:19:410:19:44

Gift from a parishioner. Very nice.

0:19:470:19:50

No, Dinah painted it.

0:19:500:19:51

Er...she's home early, isn't she?

0:19:530:19:55

Yes, she is.

0:19:550:19:57

Hm. Well, 'tis nice to have a lass with talent and spirit.

0:19:570:20:02

Especially if the spirit's guided and restrained

0:20:020:20:05

in its proper channels.

0:20:050:20:07

-Yes.

-'Tis a matter for thought, all right, these days.

0:20:070:20:11

Young girls traipse around with all manner of people.

0:20:110:20:16

Even pugilists.

0:20:160:20:18

Now, that's a thought, all right.

0:20:180:20:19

The important thing is recognising the danger signals

0:20:210:20:24

in their changing the route of the train.

0:20:240:20:27

-Do you not agree?

-Oh, I do indeed, Dan.

0:20:290:20:31

As long as one does not derail the train

0:20:310:20:34

so it never gets to its destination.

0:20:340:20:36

Hm. Oh, aye.

0:20:360:20:38

Ahem.

0:20:380:20:40

No, no. Stand up straight. Take advantage of your height.

0:20:410:20:44

Yes, Pa.

0:20:440:20:45

Keep your guard high.

0:20:460:20:48

I wish certain people would leave my paints alone

0:20:510:20:53

and stick with the trombone.

0:20:530:20:55

-I haven't touched your paints.

-Keep your guard up.

0:20:550:20:58

Where to this morning, dear?

0:21:020:21:04

Oh, just anywhere.

0:21:040:21:07

It's wonderful going out to paint, with no problems.

0:21:070:21:10

-I hope things stay that way.

-Why shouldn't they?

0:21:120:21:15

I can't get in any problems just painting.

0:21:150:21:18

Bye.

0:21:180:21:19

Well...prepare to defend yourself, Gene.

0:21:220:21:24

Hey, hey. Stay on your feet.

0:21:280:21:30

HE SNORES

0:21:530:21:55

HE SNORES

0:22:090:22:12

Not bad. Not bad at all, for a woman.

0:22:120:22:16

Needs a mite more red, though.

0:22:160:22:19

-Thank you very much.

-No trouble at all, little lady.

0:22:190:22:22

Now, would you please go away?

0:22:220:22:24

There's no question. You need red there, in the middle, on the nose.

0:22:240:22:28

That nose is OK.

0:22:300:22:32

I don't wish to disagree, but I've seen lots of paintings,

0:22:320:22:35

and, that way, it ain't no good.

0:22:350:22:37

-Looks good to me. Ain't that right?

-That's right.

0:22:370:22:40

Looks like you're wrong.

0:22:400:22:42

When I'm wrong, I'll let you know.

0:22:420:22:45

That nose ain't no good without more red.

0:22:450:22:48

-Here. Is that enough red for you?

-MEN ALL LAUGH

0:22:520:22:56

-Gentlemen, now, please!

-Sit down, darling, will you?

0:22:590:23:03

Stop that, please, gentlemen.

0:23:030:23:06

MEN ALL SHOUT

0:23:060:23:08

Gentlemen, please!

Hello?

0:23:310:23:32

Who? Mr Wade?

0:23:320:23:35

No.

0:23:350:23:36

Oh, yeah, I'm Tom Wade.

0:23:360:23:39

Do I know a WHO?

0:23:390:23:41

A Miss Smith?

0:23:420:23:43

No, I don't.

0:23:430:23:45

Say, who's this calling?

0:23:450:23:46

Oh. Oh, I see.

0:23:470:23:50

No, Sergeant, I don't.

0:23:500:23:52

What? A painter?

0:23:520:23:53

A Miss Smith, huh?

0:23:550:23:57

No, I never heard of her before.

0:23:570:23:59

Yeah, must be some mistake.

0:24:000:24:01

Yes, sir. Bye.

0:24:030:24:05

What was it, Tom?

0:24:080:24:09

Nothing, Mr Steuben. Police station.

0:24:090:24:13

What did they want, Tom?

0:24:130:24:15

Wrong number, Mr Steuben.

0:24:150:24:16

-Who did they ask for, Tom?

-Me, Mr Steuben.

0:24:170:24:21

Then, how could it be a wrong number, Tom?

0:24:220:24:25

They must have got my name by mistake, Mr Steuben.

0:24:260:24:29

What did they say, Tom?

0:24:290:24:31

Wanted me to put up 50 bail, Mr Steuben.

0:24:320:24:35

What for, Tom?

0:24:350:24:38

Some woman they arrested, Mr Steuben.

0:24:380:24:40

What did they arrest her for, Tom?

0:24:400:24:42

For causing a riot, Mr Steuben.

0:24:430:24:46

How did she do that, Tom?

0:24:460:24:48

She was painting, Mr Steuben.

0:24:480:24:51

Fainting? Ah, women are always fainting.

0:24:510:24:55

No, not fainting. Painting.

0:24:550:24:58

She's a painter, Mr Steuben.

0:24:580:25:00

METAL CLANGS

0:25:020:25:05

What took you so long getting here?

0:25:100:25:13

I don't just go around carrying 50, you know.

0:25:130:25:15

I had to go to the bank first.

0:25:150:25:17

-Why did they fine you so much?

-They didn't. It's bail.

0:25:170:25:21

I won't appear, and the money will be forfeited.

0:25:210:25:24

As they don't have my right name, that'll be the end of it.

0:25:240:25:28

-50 bail?

-10 apiece. For five of us.

0:25:280:25:32

Good day, sir.

0:25:340:25:35

You bailed THEM out with MY money?

0:25:370:25:39

Yes. If it wasn't for my painting, they wouldn't have fought.

0:25:390:25:43

I couldn't leave them. That would be selfish.

0:25:430:25:46

My deepest gratitude, young lady.

0:25:500:25:54

Mighty nice of you to get us out.

0:25:540:25:55

-Oh, that's all right.

-Yeah. Glad to do it.

0:25:550:25:58

-It was a nice picture just the way it was.

-With a bit more red.

0:25:580:26:03

< Oh, I wouldn't say that.

0:26:030:26:05

< You wouldn't?

0:26:050:26:07

< No, I wouldn't.

0:26:070:26:08

I say it was great just the way it was.

0:26:080:26:11

< I still think it needed more red.

0:26:110:26:14

Wait a minute. There was enough red in it.

0:26:140:26:17

ALL CLAMOUR AT ONCE

0:26:170:26:20

MEN CONTINUE TO ARGUE

0:26:200:26:22

Why do you have to act as if you were my keeper?

0:26:270:26:30

Because I only have three dollars left.

0:26:300:26:33

Let us not inconvenience the law.

0:26:370:26:40

I'll pay you back the money, Tom.

0:26:430:26:46

-Yeah.

-It may not be right away, but I will.

0:26:460:26:49

Oh, sure. I know that.

0:26:490:26:51

What are you so worried about, then?

0:26:510:26:53

What am I worried about?! Work.

0:26:530:26:55

A chain, a crankshaft and a broken axle to fix by tonight.

0:26:550:27:01

Plus studying, plus writing a speech for the Forum Society.

0:27:010:27:04

And you drag me down to jail.

0:27:040:27:06

-I'm sorry.

-Doesn't help.

0:27:060:27:08

No.

0:27:080:27:09

Tom, that speech you have to write.

0:27:150:27:19

-What's it about?

-Equality.

0:27:190:27:21

Equality? What kind?

0:27:210:27:24

Any old kind of equality.

0:27:240:27:26

Oh.

0:27:260:27:27

Tom, I have a marvellous idea.

0:27:280:27:31

I have a wonderful speech on that, all written,

0:27:310:27:33

for a debate we were meant to have at school.

0:27:330:27:35

You can use it.

0:27:350:27:38

No, Di, I couldn't do that.

0:27:380:27:40

Please do. I feel so badly about the trouble I've caused you.

0:27:410:27:45

It'll make me feel I've done something to show my gratitude.

0:27:460:27:50

Please.

0:27:500:27:51

Well...

0:27:520:27:54

Well, all right, if it'll make you feel better.

0:27:540:27:56

Oh, it will.

0:27:560:27:58

If I could have it any time before tomorrow night.

0:27:580:28:02

And make it nice and logical. Bye.

0:28:020:28:05

Tom, you're going to have a speech people will never forget.

0:28:060:28:10

Bye.

0:28:100:28:11

Tom!

0:28:160:28:17

Thanks so very much for helping me.

0:28:180:28:21

Oh, that's all right, Di.

0:28:210:28:23

"Members of the Forum Society and other guests,

0:28:260:28:30

"equality is that precious state guaranteed to all citizens by the constitution.

0:28:300:28:34

"It is what we cherish above all, along with freedom."

0:28:340:28:38

Dinah...

0:28:460:28:47

Will you come here a minute, please?

0:28:490:28:50

Mr Fletcher's just told us about some...

0:29:010:29:04

happenings yesterday, that er...sound...fantastic.

0:29:040:29:10

He just wanted you to tell us what you can about them.

0:29:100:29:13

They're true.

0:29:160:29:17

But why didn't you come and tell us?

0:29:170:29:19

I just didn't want anybody to know.

0:29:190:29:22

Coming on top of all the other troubles I've caused...

0:29:220:29:25

..well, I couldn't tell you.

0:29:260:29:27

-But you know you can always talk to us about anything.

-I'm so sorry.

0:29:270:29:33

Being sorry will not help.

0:29:330:29:35

You don't realise what damage you've done to your father.

0:29:350:29:39

Just a minute. Now's not the time to mention...

0:29:390:29:42

It IS time she got a sense of responsibility.

0:29:420:29:46

-She SHOULD know.

-Know what, Momma?

0:29:460:29:48

Well, dear, the bishop's retiring.

0:29:480:29:52

And your father was mentioned to succeed him.

0:29:520:29:55

Before their meeting last night,

0:29:550:29:56

George Weil's cousin, who works at the City Clerk's Office...

0:29:560:30:00

-Well...

-She saw you and Wade come out of the police station

0:30:000:30:05

with several suspicious characters.

0:30:050:30:08

Because of something I did, you won't nominate Papa for bishop?

0:30:080:30:12

That's not within my powers.

0:30:120:30:15

The others feel it's a bad reflection on your father.

0:30:150:30:19

They postponed the nominations.

0:30:190:30:21

Oh, Papa, I feel so awful.

0:30:210:30:23

-You'd make such a wonderful bishop.

-That he would. >

0:30:230:30:27

I'm very happy just being pastor of St Edmunds.

0:30:270:30:30

-I don't know if I'm fitted to be bishop.

-You are.

0:30:300:30:33

-SOBBING:

-Oh, you are.

0:30:330:30:34

If you ask my opinion, the young lady should be punished.

0:30:390:30:42

Aye. Properly punished.

0:30:420:30:44

What would you suggest, Dan?

0:30:460:30:48

It should not be light. I warn you.

0:30:480:30:50

Mm... How about flogging in the public square?

0:30:500:30:54

Or ducking in the ducking stool?

0:30:540:30:56

Andrew, I counsel ye. Ye cannae take this matter lightly.

0:30:560:31:00

I don't, Dan.

0:31:000:31:02

But as far as I can see, she hasn't done anything to merit punishment.

0:31:020:31:05

The others will take no such-like view of it.

0:31:060:31:09

It's your future I'm concerned with, Andrew.

0:31:090:31:12

I let the Lord take care of that. He does a better job of it.

0:31:130:31:17

Well, if you'll not work for your own advancement, I cannae help you.

0:31:170:31:23

Good day, Andrew.

0:31:230:31:24

Goodbye, Dan.

0:31:240:31:26

Dinah...

0:31:390:31:41

She's on the porch.

0:31:410:31:43

Oh, Papa, I feel so awful about what I've done to you.

0:32:000:32:04

You haven't done anything to me.

0:32:040:32:06

Yes, I have. I'm always causing things like this, somehow.

0:32:060:32:10

And other people get hurt. And now you.

0:32:100:32:13

I heard what Mr Fletcher said.

0:32:170:32:19

He's right. I should be punished.

0:32:190:32:22

-For what?

-Well, for...

0:32:220:32:25

For being eager to paint?

0:32:250:32:27

Maybe it was unwise to wander into that particular district,

0:32:280:32:31

but then, art has no geography.

0:32:310:32:34

But some people think I did wrong.

0:32:340:32:36

I'm all mixed up.

0:32:380:32:40

Yes, I know you are.

0:32:400:32:41

HE CHUCKLES

0:32:440:32:46

It's a curious thing, but something like this happened to me once.

0:32:460:32:50

I didn't do anything wrong either, though many thought I did.

0:32:500:32:54

-But I learned something from it.

-What happened to you?

0:32:540:32:58

Well, when I was quite young, I had an ambition.

0:33:000:33:03

It...may sound a little odd to you now, but...

0:33:030:33:07

I was very sincere about it.

0:33:070:33:09

I wanted to be a...

0:33:090:33:11

..ballroom dancer.

0:33:120:33:14

-Papa, you didn't?!

-Yes, I did.

0:33:140:33:16

And I was pretty good, too, if I do say so.

0:33:160:33:19

Of course, your grandpa and grandma were unalterably opposed.

0:33:190:33:23

Said it was unbecoming and unconventional

0:33:230:33:27

and forbade me to do it.

0:33:270:33:29

Grandpa was running for County Recorder, but I didn't know that,

0:33:300:33:34

and I ran off to join a touring act.

0:33:340:33:36

Only the nicest hotels, of course, and an occasional theatre.

0:33:360:33:40

-How old were you?

-18.

0:33:400:33:45

I thought at the time it was my destined vocation.

0:33:450:33:48

It seemed to me that anything I wanted that badly was meant to be.

0:33:480:33:52

Then you DO understand.

0:33:520:33:54

Indeed I do.

0:33:550:33:56

Well, what happened then?

0:33:560:33:58

Oh, I lasted three weeks.

0:33:580:34:01

The act... How do they say it? ..folded up, and I went home.

0:34:010:34:05

For weeks, I was overwhelmed with guilt,

0:34:060:34:09

because Grandpa lost the election.

0:34:090:34:12

And I thought it was due to my...escapade.

0:34:120:34:16

But it wasn't.

0:34:160:34:17

He had lost it, anyway.

0:34:170:34:20

You know...

0:34:200:34:21

I don't think even your mother knows about my brief career as a dancer.

0:34:210:34:27

I think it was wonderful of you to go out and do what you wanted,

0:34:270:34:31

no matter what people thought.

0:34:310:34:34

Perhaps it explains where you get some of your...unconventionality.

0:34:340:34:38

Now, let's go inside

0:34:400:34:42

and have breakfast, shall we?

0:34:420:34:44

I only wish I were more like the kind of daughter you deserve.

0:34:440:34:48

I've never been quite sure what kind of a daughter I deserve,

0:34:500:34:54

but I do know you're exactly the kind of daughter I WANT.

0:34:540:34:57

Tom, sorry I'm late.

0:35:120:35:14

I just had an idea for another paragraph at the last minute.

0:35:140:35:17

I wish I could have read it at least once.

0:35:170:35:20

-Well, good evening, Miss Sheldon.

-Good evening.

-Hello, Beehouse.

0:35:200:35:24

-Hey, Tom, come on. You're late. You're on first.

-Coming.

0:35:260:35:30

Is my tie straight?

0:35:300:35:32

Yes.

0:35:320:35:33

-I'm sitting with my parents.

-I'll help you find them.

0:35:360:35:39

AUDIENCE MEMBERS CHATTER

0:35:390:35:42

And now our first speaker, Mr Thomas Wade of the senior class.

0:35:480:35:52

TOM CLEARS THROAT

0:35:560:35:58

"Members of the Forum Society and honoured guests,

0:35:590:36:03

"equality is that precious state guaranteed to all citizens by the constitution.

0:36:030:36:10

"But now I ask you do we have equality?

0:36:100:36:14

"And I answer we do not."

0:36:140:36:16

"I invite you, ladies and gentlemen, to look carefully at one citizen.

0:36:170:36:22

"That uncomplaining, faithful servant who gets no wage.

0:36:220:36:26

"That helpless creature without rights.

0:36:260:36:29

"The American wife."

0:36:290:36:31

-The American wife?

-LAUGHTER

0:36:310:36:33

SPORADIC LAUGHTER

0:36:370:36:40

"A-A-And...

0:36:400:36:41

"And when she is not grudging, what then?

0:36:410:36:45

" 'What then?' I say to you."

0:36:450:36:47

That mush don't sound like Tom.

0:36:470:36:49

I beg your pardon, Mr Beehouse.

0:36:490:36:51

Don't get mad. I just can't believe Tom ever thought junk like that.

0:36:510:36:56

That's merely because you don't know the real Tom.

0:36:560:36:59

"..It is her lord and master who decrees..."

0:37:000:37:03

"Members of the Forum Society and..." No.

0:37:040:37:07

LAUGHTER

0:37:070:37:10

"..how she shall spend that leisure.

0:37:110:37:14

"As his vassal. Not a human being with equal rights,

0:37:140:37:17

"but a mere plaything of man."

0:37:170:37:20

LAUGHTER

0:37:200:37:23

Shhh! Shhh!

0:37:240:37:26

Some people have no manners at all.

0:37:260:37:29

"Equality.

0:37:290:37:32

"Ladies and gentlemen...

0:37:320:37:33

"I laugh."

0:37:330:37:35

LAUGHTER

0:37:350:37:37

"Pray, do not take MY word for it.

0:37:370:37:40

"Who am I but a humble...woman?"

0:37:400:37:43

-I mean, man.

-LAUGHTER CONTINUES

0:37:440:37:46

RIPPLES OF LAUGHTER

0:37:490:37:52

"Let's go to a truly great human being.

0:37:520:37:55

"Let me give you his exact words."

0:37:550:37:58

HE CLEARS THROAT

0:37:580:38:00

"The words of the bard Alfred Lord Tennyson

0:38:010:38:05

"on the subject of woman's place in marriage.

0:38:050:38:07

" 'He will hold thee when his passion shall have spent its novel force.

0:38:070:38:12

" 'Something better than his dog. A little dearer than his horse.' "

0:38:120:38:17

Bravo! Bravo!

0:38:170:38:20

-Bravo! Bravo!

-"There are two choices open to us.

0:38:200:38:25

"Either this evil is ended, or woman herself will arise,

0:38:250:38:29

"in just wrath, to claim her rights.

0:38:290:38:31

"Another declaration of independence will be written."

0:38:310:38:35

"And... And I do not have to...

0:38:360:38:39

"to be a prophet to tell you...

0:38:390:38:40

"that the first words in that new declaration will be..."

0:38:400:38:43

SPORADIC LAUGHTER

0:38:450:38:48

" 'Until we...' "

0:38:490:38:51

" '..women...stand side by side with men in equal freedom...' "

0:38:520:38:56

LAUGHTER

0:38:560:38:57

-" '..we will not...' "

-LAUGHTER

0:38:570:39:01

" '..share his home or...

0:39:010:39:05

-" 'bear his children.' "

-GALES OF LAUGHTER

0:39:050:39:08

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:39:090:39:11

ORGANISER: Just put the chairs against the wall

0:39:140:39:17

so the old folks can sit down and you young folks can dance.

0:39:170:39:21

What did you do it for? That's all I want to know.

0:39:270:39:30

I'm sorry. I forgot to change some of the words.

0:39:300:39:34

Forgot? Well, it made me look like a jackass.

0:39:340:39:37

You heard them laughing. Everybody thinks I'm a fool.

0:39:370:39:41

-Well done, young man. Congratulations.

-Thanks.

0:39:410:39:45

I'm Helen Hatley Hamilton, chairman of the Woman's Suffrage Party.

0:39:450:39:49

We could use you. Right spirt and the right words.

0:39:490:39:53

Too bad you're not a woman.

0:39:530:39:54

-You see?

-Congratulations, Tom. Great speech.

0:39:560:40:00

-Thanks.

-Yes, sir. Right spirit and the right words.

0:40:000:40:03

Too bad you aren't a man. ..May I have this dance?

0:40:030:40:07

I'd be delighted, Mr Beehouse.

0:40:070:40:09

Hm. I suppose he thought that was funny.

0:40:130:40:15

Don't pay any attention. He's merely uncouth.

0:40:150:40:19

It's wonderful, the way you delivered it.

0:40:190:40:22

You're still angry? Doesn't it make any difference that I liked it?

0:40:230:40:28

Of course. All the difference in the world.

0:40:290:40:32

THE BAND PLAYS A ONE-STEP

0:40:320:40:34

-Would you like some punch?

-Yes.

0:41:020:41:04

I've got to say good night to Aunt Lou and Uncle Emery. I'll be right back.

0:41:040:41:09

Can't be too soon for me.

0:41:090:41:10

Would you care for a glass of punch?

0:41:160:41:19

-Thanks.

-I'll get you one.

0:41:190:41:21

Di, I'd like to speak to you.

0:41:240:41:26

-Why, of course, Tom.

-Privately. Let's go outside for a minute.

0:41:270:41:31

Isn't it beautiful out here tonight?

0:41:470:41:50

As a matter of fact, it's rather chilly.

0:41:500:41:52

We'll skip that.

0:41:520:41:53

Right here's as good a place to talk as any.

0:41:540:41:56

Yes, Tom.

0:41:580:41:59

What is it?

0:42:020:42:03

It's about you and me, Di.

0:42:040:42:05

Yes, Tom?

0:42:070:42:09

I'm not satisfied with this relationship.

0:42:100:42:13

It's got to change.

0:42:130:42:15

How, Tom?

0:42:160:42:17

I just don't want to be seen with you any more.

0:42:200:42:22

It isn't only tonight's speech. It's everything.

0:42:240:42:28

The time in grammar school and I got in a fight and lost two teeth.

0:42:280:42:33

The time I lost my chance to be on the football team when you got me into a row with the coach's sister.

0:42:330:42:39

-The time you talked me into buying a course...

-But, Tom, I...

0:42:390:42:43

And the time you lost me my job.

0:42:430:42:46

And all your other ideas.

0:42:460:42:47

Let's just call it quits,

0:42:470:42:49

because I don't want anything more to happen.

0:42:490:42:53

Especially now, with Bernice and everything.

0:42:530:42:56

Please remember that, will you?

0:42:560:42:58

Yes, Tom.

0:42:590:43:00

Thank you.

0:43:000:43:02

-Excuse me.

-Certainly, Tom.

0:43:050:43:08

MUSIC: "Artist's Life" by Johann Strauss

0:43:080:43:11

Di.

0:43:350:43:36

Hello, Papa.

0:43:380:43:40

Isn't it a little cold out here, dear?

0:43:400:43:42

Yes. That's what Tom said.

0:43:440:43:46

The moon's certainly pretty, shining on the water.

0:43:500:43:52

It only hides the sadness underneath.

0:43:530:43:56

Life can be like that sometimes.

0:43:560:43:59

Beautiful and bright on the surface, still and cold underneath.

0:43:590:44:03

Yes, it can.

0:44:050:44:06

That's a lovely waltz they're playing. So gay.

0:44:080:44:11

Yes, gay if one's gay... sad if one's sad.

0:44:120:44:15

Strauss, isn't it?

0:44:180:44:19

That's why it's sad.

0:44:210:44:22

Why is that, dear?

0:44:240:44:26

It was written long ago, about something that's lost for ever.

0:44:260:44:30

Something rare and beautiful, that can never be again.

0:44:300:44:33

Just a deep pain at the memory of the lost past.

0:44:340:44:38

We should never mourn for the past.

0:44:390:44:42

Sometimes, it's more beautiful than the future.

0:44:420:44:45

ORGANISER: Ladies and gentlemen, the Grand Waltz Contest!

0:44:450:44:50

WALTZ BEGINS

0:44:530:44:55

You know, I haven't danced in ten years.

0:44:550:44:58

But I'll bet I can still manage to stay off my partner's toes.

0:45:000:45:03

Would you come inside and dance this one with me?

0:45:050:45:08

Of course, Papa.

0:45:110:45:12

Papa, how do you get to be a missionary?

0:45:180:45:20

I, er...

0:45:230:45:24

I'll tell you inside.

0:45:240:45:26

MUSIC: "Gold And Silver Waltz" by Lehar

0:45:440:45:47

Gee, Pa's a good dancer!

0:46:290:46:31

Yes. Oh, yes!

0:46:310:46:34

Papa, we've won!

0:47:450:47:47

What I wonder is, why would Tom be mad at me?

0:48:010:48:04

-I

-can't explain the vagaries of Mr Wade's disposition.

0:48:040:48:08

Gee whiz, don't get your dander up!

0:48:080:48:10

I'm not perturbed, if that's what you mean by that vulgar slang.

0:48:100:48:14

-No! Put him here! He'll choke!

-That's just silly.

0:48:150:48:19

You want to kill the guppy?

0:48:190:48:21

-He's my guppy.

-He is not!

0:48:210:48:23

-You don't know beans about guppies.

-I do! I'll hold him if I want.

0:48:230:48:28

He'll die if you hold him.

0:48:280:48:30

-There! See?

-He will not.

0:48:300:48:32

He knows me... >

0:48:320:48:34

He will so! >

0:48:340:48:35

-Children, please.

-FABRIC RIPS

0:48:350:48:37

< He's different from a fish.

0:48:380:48:40

-A guppy IS a fish.

-I told you...

-Let go of my guppy!

0:48:400:48:44

All right.

0:48:440:48:46

< All right. But you wait. Just you wait.

0:48:460:48:50

Sorry. Is my working on my sermon in any way disturbing any of you?

0:48:510:48:57

-LILY:

-We're sorry, Andrew, dear.

0:48:570:48:58

What's the sermon about, Pa?

0:49:000:49:02

The power of silence.

0:49:020:49:04

Proverbs 17, verse 28.

0:49:060:49:08

"Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise

0:49:090:49:14

"and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding."

0:49:140:49:19

TROMBONE BURPS

0:49:220:49:24

Momma, I'm going out for a little walk.

0:49:270:49:30

Fresh air's good for a person before bedtime. I'll sleep better.

0:49:300:49:33

Get your hands off that...

0:49:460:49:48

-LILY:

-Let's please have no more talking.

0:49:480:49:50

Quiet in the court! The monkey's going to speak!

0:49:500:49:53

Speak, monkey! Speak!

0:49:530:49:55

-ANDREW:

-Ahem.

-BOTH CHILDREN:

-You're the monkey!

0:49:580:50:01

I was clearing my throat!

0:50:010:50:04

Oh, it's you.

0:50:120:50:14

Mr Wade, it's very important that I speak with you privately.

0:50:140:50:17

Look, Dinah, I'm very busy.

0:50:190:50:21

There's nothing to stop you from talking.

0:50:210:50:23

Mr Steuben doesn't allow employees to talk during working hours.

0:50:250:50:29

Mr Steuben, may I talk to Tom? It's very urgent.

0:50:310:50:34

-Why, sure. Oh, Tom?

-Yes, Mr Steuben?

0:50:340:50:38

This young lady wants to talk to you.

0:50:380:50:41

I won't get this automobile done if I do, Mr Steuben.

0:50:410:50:44

You let me worry about that, Tom.

0:50:440:50:46

-Yes, Mr Steuben.

-Thank you.

0:50:460:50:49

-Well?

-Mr Wade, since you desire to terminate our relationship,

0:50:520:50:56

I feel the need to clear up the 50 I owe you.

0:50:560:51:00

I don't have to have that.

0:51:000:51:01

I feel the sooner it's settled, the happier we'll be.

0:51:010:51:05

After all, 50 is a lot of money.

0:51:050:51:08

Well, now that you mention it, I could use it.

0:51:080:51:12

Say, I...I certainly could.

0:51:120:51:14

Bernice's birthday is coming up, you know.

0:51:140:51:16

You'll certainly have your money.

0:51:160:51:19

-Have you got it?

-I...have a way to get it.

0:51:190:51:22

Unfortunately, I need your co-operation.

0:51:220:51:25

But you will have funds to lavish gifts upon your continental friend.

0:51:250:51:30

-Where are you going to get 50?

-Painting.

0:51:300:51:34

-Huh!

-If you'll deign to read it, you'll see it's a competition.

0:51:340:51:38

There are three prizes of 50.

0:51:380:51:41

I intend to win one of them with a portrait of you

0:51:410:51:44

as The Spirit Of Labor.

0:51:440:51:46

Are you bats?!

0:51:470:51:48

You want to get Bernice that gift, don't you?

0:51:500:51:52

Not that way, I don't.

0:51:520:51:54

I think that's foolish, Tom, since I'm doing this for you.

0:51:540:51:58

-You can forget it. I won't be a laughing stock again.

-All I need you for is to pose.

0:51:580:52:03

The face won't look like you, if that's what you're afraid of.

0:52:030:52:06

It won't?

0:52:080:52:09

Heavens, no!

0:52:090:52:10

A person would be vain to imagine their face personifying all labour!

0:52:100:52:15

I'm going to paint in the face of an ideal man

0:52:150:52:17

half angel, half Hercules.

0:52:170:52:21

No.

0:52:220:52:23

Oh, Tom...

0:52:230:52:25

Papa's lending me the greenhouse as a studio. It's completely secluded.

0:52:250:52:29

-So nobody would see me pose?

-No! You can put on your costume...

0:52:310:52:35

Costume?

0:52:350:52:37

..and go right over without a soul seeing.

0:52:370:52:39

What kind of a costume?

0:52:390:52:41

Well, I... I haven't decided exactly what.

0:52:410:52:45

After all, you have to typify labour in an idealised way.

0:52:450:52:50

Atlas holding the world up... Giants trampling wine from grapes...

0:52:500:52:54

Gulliver... Goliath...

0:52:540:52:56

It has to be filled with strength.

0:52:560:52:59

HEN CLUCKS

0:53:010:53:03

"Velocity of a point is the...

0:53:090:53:11

"time arc at which it is traversing distance."

0:53:110:53:15

Phew. This hammer isn't exactly made of feathers, Di.

0:53:170:53:21

I'll be done in a few minutes.

0:53:210:53:23

HENS CLUCK

0:53:230:53:25

Shoo! Go away! Get off there! Go on!

0:53:250:53:29

All you need is a little patience.

0:53:310:53:33

Patience? In this pose and costume?

0:53:330:53:36

-Why, if anybody saw me like this...

-Oh, Tom, don't be a prude.

0:53:360:53:40

An artist is above that. I'm not aware of you as a person.

0:53:400:53:45

To me, you're merely light and shadow.

0:53:450:53:47

-How does a swimsuit fit in with Hercules?

-Wait till it's finished.

0:53:470:53:52

MR STEUBEN: Tom! Oh, Tom!

0:53:520:53:55

I have to go, Di. Mr Steuben wants me in the garage.

0:53:550:53:57

Tom, two more minutes and I'll be finished for the day. Please, Tom.

0:53:570:54:01

-I haven't got all day to waste.

-He'll be here in a minute. TOM!

0:54:030:54:08

Coming. I've got to go, Di.

0:54:090:54:11

Just one more minute.

0:54:110:54:12

-Hello, Mrs Sheldon!

-Bernice, dear! How are you?

0:54:140:54:17

Is that the new frock your mother told me about?

0:54:170:54:20

Just a little thing Momma made up.

0:54:200:54:23

It's darling. Did you come to show Dinah? She's in the greenhouse.

0:54:230:54:28

I know she'll be pleased you came to show it to her.

0:54:280:54:32

When do I get to see the painting?

0:54:340:54:36

It would be very bad luck for you to see it before I exhibit it.

0:54:360:54:39

-< Dinah?

-It's Bernice!

0:54:400:54:43

If she sees me in here like this...

0:54:430:54:46

-< Dinah?

-Uh...just a minute, Bernice.

0:54:460:54:48

Hide! Not there. Over there.

0:54:480:54:51

-< Dinah?

-HENS CLUCK

0:54:520:54:55

What are you doing in this...? Oh, painting!

0:54:550:55:00

Just dabbing. Papa lets me use it for a studio. It's so secluded.

0:55:000:55:04

Who can paint with all that racket?

0:55:040:55:07

-WILD CLUCKING

-Oh, my mind's on higher things. Isn't that a new dress?

0:55:070:55:11

Yes! Don't you love the neckline? They're two inches lower in Paris.

0:55:110:55:16

-You know Paris. Tout a la mode.

-Oh, yes.

0:55:160:55:21

Tom will like it.

0:55:210:55:22

A girl shouldn't wear anything her fiance doesn't care for.

0:55:220:55:26

Tom has very decided ideas. But I don't mind him being strait-laced.

0:55:260:55:31

No... I mean, yes. Why should you?

0:55:310:55:35

Bernice, I've been wanting to ask,

0:55:350:55:38

can you show me how you do that French hairstyle?

0:55:380:55:41

-I don't mind.

-There's a double mirror upstairs.

0:55:410:55:44

-I'm not sure you've got the face.

-It's awfully sweet of you, anyway.

0:55:440:55:49

All right. Now you can squawk.

0:55:500:55:52

OFFENDED CLUCKING

0:55:520:55:55

..in a French roll. Then you take the sides...

0:55:570:56:00

Oh, you've finished already? How did the painting go?

0:56:010:56:05

Oh, er...just splendidly, Momma.

0:56:060:56:09

Lily? May I see you a moment?

0:56:100:56:13

­ DOOR CLOSES

0:56:130:56:15

Of course, Andrew.

0:56:160:56:18

Lily, Mr Fletcher was just here...

0:56:300:56:31

..on a matter of great importance.

0:56:330:56:35

-Has Dinah done something again?

-No.

0:56:350:56:37

Oh, thank goodness.

0:56:370:56:39

No, it's... more important than that.

0:56:400:56:44

What is it?

0:56:440:56:46

It's something...as you know, Lily...I've never sought.

0:56:460:56:51

Andrew!

0:56:510:56:52

Dan told me I'm to be nominated for bishop.

0:56:520:56:56

That's wonderful!

0:56:560:56:58

Oh, I'm so glad, Andrew dear!

0:56:580:57:00

I know I should be very happy, but...

0:57:020:57:04

Aren't you?

0:57:060:57:07

-Yes, of course, but...

-But what, dear?

0:57:070:57:10

I...

0:57:110:57:12

I'm not sure I'm worthy of it.

0:57:140:57:17

Why, of course you are!

0:57:170:57:19

I feel very humble, Lily, touched,

0:57:200:57:23

that the people of St Edmunds think I am.

0:57:230:57:25

But I'm not sure that my calling is to be a bishop.

0:57:260:57:29

Before I told you, I went over to the church to pray.

0:57:300:57:34

I wanted guidance

0:57:340:57:36

to be told whether I had a right to be nominated.

0:57:360:57:38

I knew, of course, that as in all things,

0:57:400:57:43

that guidance would come from above.

0:57:430:57:44

It's because you do think this that you're right for it.

0:57:460:57:50

Oh, there'll be other nominees. Dr Bristow, for one.

0:57:500:57:54

I have great affection and respect for him. He's a truly fine man.

0:57:540:57:58

And so are YOU, Andrew.

0:57:580:58:00

And I'm a very lucky man. I know that.

0:58:020:58:05

-May I tell the children?

-I'm not elected yet.

0:58:050:58:08

Oh, nonsense!

0:58:080:58:10

Children! Oh, children?

0:58:110:58:15

Come downstairs! Your father's got news for you!

0:58:150:58:18

What's up, Momma?

0:58:180:58:21

Momma, what is it?

0:58:220:58:23

Your father's been nominated for bishop of the diocese of Maryland!

0:58:230:58:27

Pa, this is a very important day to us. Congratulations, sir.

0:58:340:58:39

I'm sure we'll all behave as a bishop's family should behave.

0:58:400:58:43

And I know the Bishop of Maryland will have the best left hook in the US.

0:58:450:58:49

Now, wait a minute...

0:58:490:58:50

I'm not even nominated, let alone elected.

0:58:500:58:54

-There are other candidates.

-Oh, Papa. They can't elect anyone but you.

0:58:540:58:58

I'm not so sure. Lily, are ice cream and cake in order?

0:58:580:59:03

-Definitely!

-Let's go get them!

0:59:030:59:04

-MARK:

-Pa, I'd like to ask a question.

0:59:040:59:07

What is it?

0:59:070:59:09

-Does a bishop make more money?

-Mark!

0:59:090:59:11

ALL LAUGH

0:59:110:59:13

-Yes?

-I'd like to enter a painting in the exhibition.

0:59:260:59:30

-For whom are you delivering? Mr...?

-Not Mister. Miss.

0:59:300:59:33

-Miss?

-Yes. Miss Dinah Sheldon. I'm not delivering it. I'm entering it.

0:59:330:59:39

Entering it? We've never had a female entrant.

0:59:390:59:43

-The rules don't say women can't enter.

-My dear young lady,

0:59:430:59:47

no woman wrote a great opera,

0:59:470:59:49

built a great building or painted a great painting.

0:59:490:59:53

No woman ever voted, but we will.

0:59:530:59:55

You have no right to bar my work.

0:59:550:59:57

The rules admit everybody. As you'd know if you'd read them.

0:59:571:00:00

Page seven.

1:00:081:00:09

Thank you.

1:00:091:00:11

You're right!

1:00:131:00:15

Then, here's my entry.

1:00:151:00:17

Well! Quite good!

1:00:321:00:35

Thank you. There's just one thing.

1:00:351:00:38

-The painter's name is secret, isn't it?

-Oh, yes, indeed.

1:00:381:00:41

Each painting is unsigned, with a number fixed to the frame.

1:00:411:00:45

We keep the names separately, so the judges aren't influenced.

1:00:451:00:50

Your number is 87. Your name will be undisclosed.

1:00:501:00:54

I'd like to remain anonymous after judging, too.

1:00:541:00:57

-Even if you should win?

-Yes, even if I should win.

1:00:571:01:00

Yes, I...think I see what you mean, Miss Sheldon.

1:01:031:01:07

87!

1:01:141:01:15

-Bernice! Come and see 87!

-What for?

1:01:191:01:22

I hate to say anything,

1:01:221:01:24

but it may change your mind about some things.

1:01:241:01:28

What things, child?

1:01:281:01:29

Come and see, Mrs Eckert! If you have smelling salts, lend them to Bernice!

1:01:291:01:35

SHE GASPS

1:01:391:01:41

-It's Tom! Your Tom!

-Yes, it's Tom!

1:01:411:01:44

He must have posed for it.

1:01:441:01:46

-WOMAN:

-Why, that's Tom Wade!

1:01:461:01:48

In THAT costume!

1:01:481:01:50

-I wonder who painted it.

-I'll tell you! Dinah Sheldon!

1:01:501:01:55

-Dr Sheldon's daughter!

-Oh, how dreadful!

1:01:551:01:59

Your fiance posed like that before a woman?

1:01:591:02:02

So that's what she was doing in that secret studio!

1:02:021:02:06

That's why she was so odd about it.

1:02:061:02:08

She liked it because it was SECLUDED, she said.

1:02:081:02:11

Too secluded, I'd say.

1:02:111:02:14

I wonder what else went on.

1:02:141:02:16

-I've heard about artists.

-I knew one once.

1:02:161:02:19

Where did you know an artist? You never told me.

1:02:191:02:22

I must get this poor child home. You speak to Tom Wade.

1:02:221:02:26

Dinah Sheldon, the hussy!

1:02:261:02:28

HECTIC MUSIC

1:02:311:02:34

-Hello.

-Good afternoon, Dinah.

1:02:451:02:48

YELLING: Dinah!

1:02:521:02:54

How's Tom Wade?

1:02:541:02:56

-Shhh! Stop it!

-Poor Dr Sheldon.

1:02:561:02:59

Why did you do it? That's all I want to know.

1:03:091:03:12

-Why did you put my face on it? You said you wouldn't.

-I know.

1:03:121:03:16

I tried all kinds of things, but they were wrong.

1:03:161:03:20

I painted and painted, and suddenly I saw that without meaning to,

1:03:201:03:25

I'd put in your face.

1:03:251:03:27

And then it WAS right.

1:03:271:03:29

-I didn't try to do it. It just happened.

-It sure did.

1:03:291:03:33

They...gave me a prize. I can pay you back the 50 now.

1:03:331:03:39

Thanks.

1:03:411:03:42

I'll need it.

1:03:431:03:45

I just lost my job on account of...things.

1:03:451:03:48

-Oh, Tom!

-Bernice is mad at me. So's my Aunt Ella.

1:03:481:03:52

I wish I could change things.

1:03:521:03:54

It's too late now.

1:03:541:03:55

I don't know why, but taking this makes me feel like Benedict Arnold or somebody.

1:03:571:04:03

-If you'd disciplined her, it wouldn't have happened.

-Perhaps, Dan.

1:04:091:04:13

But the damage is done. Good day.

1:04:131:04:17

-Afternoon, Miss Wade.

-Afternoon, Mr Fletcher.

1:04:171:04:19

Glad to see you, Ella. Come on in.

1:04:191:04:21

-Dr Sheldon, this whole thing is just terrible.

-Let's sit down and talk about it.

1:04:221:04:27

Talking won't do a smidgen of good.

1:04:281:04:31

I feel something just has to be done about it, that's all.

1:04:311:04:34

Goodness knows what.

1:04:341:04:35

-How's Tom?

-He's very upset. You know what they're saying.

1:04:381:04:42

-Yes.

-He had to hit two of his friends this afternoon.

1:04:431:04:48

Oh, yes, it's come to that.

1:04:481:04:49

Breaking up his friendships, on top of everything.

1:04:491:04:52

I'm sorry to hear that.

1:04:531:04:55

You'd be a mite sorrier to hear what they say about YOU.

1:04:551:04:58

And your wife. And how Dinah was raised.

1:04:581:05:01

Not that I'd listen, but I could tell you who's saying those mean things.

1:05:011:05:06

Ella, I don't want to know. They don't know what they're doing.

1:05:061:05:11

KNOCK AT DOOR Andrew, dear... Excuse me, Ella. ..may I see you a moment?

1:05:111:05:16

Certainly, dear. I'll be right back, Ella.

1:05:161:05:18

Come in here a minute, dear.

1:05:201:05:22

Andrew, there are two more people to see you.

1:05:281:05:31

-Same thing?

-Yes, Mr Eckert and a man from the Post for a picture of Dinah.

1:05:311:05:36

-That's out of the question.

-You'll have to talk to him.

1:05:361:05:39

It's a tempest in a teapot.

1:05:391:05:42

-I'll get rid of them.

-DOORBELL

1:05:421:05:45

Now there's someone else.

1:05:451:05:47

Andrew, she can go to your sister Carrie in Pittsburgh for a few months.

1:05:471:05:52

-What good would it do?

-She'd have a chance to think, and we can sort things out.

1:05:521:05:57

If anything's to be sorted out, the place is here.

1:05:571:06:01

They'll be dreadful to her.

1:06:011:06:03

I'm afraid you're right, Lily.

1:06:031:06:06

But what affects Dinah affects us too.

1:06:061:06:09

-I'd rather face it here than send her away. It isn't Dinah's fault.

-I don't know, Andrew.

1:06:091:06:15

I can't help feeling it must be partly her fault.

1:06:151:06:18

-Ordinary well-mannered people don't get into things like this.

-Lily.

1:06:181:06:24

Ordinary well-mannered people get into all kinds of trouble.

1:06:241:06:27

Oh!

1:06:311:06:33

Bernice? I've been looking for you.

1:06:351:06:38

You'd no need to hang up the phone.

1:06:381:06:40

There's no point you talking to me, Tom Wade.

1:06:401:06:43

-Won't you let me explain?

-Some things explain themselves, Mr Wade.

1:06:431:06:48

I love this new flavour, Fred.

1:06:481:06:50

Have another! Two sodas, please. Pistachio.

1:06:501:06:54

Bernice, you're mistaken about this.

1:06:541:06:57

If that's so, you wouldn't be seen talking with Dinah Sheldon.

1:06:571:07:01

Mrs Weir told Momma she was hanging out washing,

1:07:011:07:04

and you walked right back into that greenhouse

1:07:041:07:08

and talked to her, as big as life!

1:07:081:07:11

What's wrong with that?

1:07:111:07:12

After what she did?! That creature!

1:07:121:07:14

She is not a creature. You're taking a wrong attitude.

1:07:141:07:18

Mr Wade, to whom do you think you're speaking to?

1:07:181:07:22

-I'm telling you, Di did nothing wrong.

-She's nothing but a...a...

1:07:221:07:27

things everybody's saying.

1:07:271:07:29

-Do you believe them?

-Where there's smoke there's fire, Mother says.

1:07:291:07:32

-That's the most unfair thing I ever heard.

-Everyone can't be wrong.

1:07:331:07:38

If I were willing not to ask questions,

1:07:381:07:41

the least you can do is promise not to speak to that hussy again.

1:07:411:07:46

Bernice, if you were a man I'd punch you in the nose.

1:07:461:07:50

Fred!

1:07:501:07:51

Uh...I'M a man.

1:07:521:07:54

Man, huh?

1:07:571:07:59

He's fainted!

1:08:011:08:03

-Lily?

-Yes?

1:08:031:08:05

Lily, where are you?

1:08:071:08:09

I'm up here, dear. What is it?

1:08:091:08:12

You'll have to change your Young People's Meeting to another day.

1:08:121:08:16

The furnace man's working in the hall on Tuesday.

1:08:171:08:20

Monday, then.

1:08:201:08:21

Hey, what's going on here?

1:08:231:08:25

Dinah's going to visit your sister Carrie till summer.

1:08:251:08:29

-I told you how I feel about that.

-Papa, please.

1:08:291:08:32

We talked it over, and Momma's right.

1:08:321:08:35

It's best for me to go away for a few months.

1:08:351:08:38

I've done nothing but cause trouble for you.

1:08:381:08:40

I said before, it's a family responsibility. We'll fight it out.

1:08:441:08:48

There's nothing to fight.

1:08:481:08:50

It's a matter of getting people to forget. They won't if Dinah's here.

1:08:501:08:55

-Forget what? The evil their own minds invented?

-No, dear.

1:08:551:08:58

The situation that could affect your whole future.

1:08:581:09:02

Lily dear, if God wants me to be bishop, I will be.

1:09:051:09:08

It's more urgent to recognise gossip for what it is.

1:09:081:09:12

Andrew, dear, you know how much good you could do.

1:09:121:09:15

It means so much to everyone.

1:09:151:09:18

PHONE RINGS

1:09:181:09:20

I talked with Mr Fletcher and some of the vestrymen.

1:09:211:09:24

We agree it's the wisest thing.

1:09:241:09:26

-GENE:

-Call for Pa, about the job for Hank Miller.

1:09:261:09:29

Right, Gene.

1:09:291:09:31

-Lily...

-Answer that and leave this to me, dear.

1:09:311:09:34

I know I'm right, Andrew.

1:09:341:09:36

I won't stand still while you lose the chance to be bishop of this diocese.

1:09:361:09:42

-­

-Pa, are you coming?

-Please, dear.

1:09:421:09:45

-­

-Shall I hang up, Pa?

1:09:451:09:47

No, I'm coming.

1:09:471:09:48

HE CLEARS THROAT

1:09:531:09:55

-MARK: I wish

-I

-was going away!

1:09:591:10:01

-SIS:

-I don't.

1:10:011:10:03

Tom?

1:10:111:10:13

I just want to say goodbye.

1:10:231:10:24

I thought it all over, Di, and I know it wasn't your fault.

1:10:271:10:30

Thank you.

1:10:301:10:32

I'm sorry they're sending you away.

1:10:321:10:35

Perhaps it's as well if we don't see each other. I've caused you enough grief.

1:10:351:10:40

I don't hold anything against you, Di.

1:10:411:10:44

-Dinah! Come on, dear. We're ready.

-All right, Momma. I'm coming.

1:10:441:10:48

Perhaps we should say goodbye here...

1:10:501:10:52

..in the darkness.

1:10:531:10:55

It would be best for you not to be seen with me now.

1:10:551:10:58

I don't feel that way. I'm not ashamed to be seen with you.

1:10:581:11:03

No, it...it's better this way.

1:11:031:11:06

You know what they're saying.

1:11:061:11:08

The world can be very unkind to a woman alone.

1:11:101:11:13

Well, we'll just show them.

1:11:131:11:15

I'll ride to the station with you. We'll let everybody see us.

1:11:151:11:19

You behave, and mind your father.

1:11:201:11:23

-Yes, Momma.

-MARK: Yes, Momma.

1:11:231:11:24

Tom's going to see me off.

1:11:261:11:28

Oh? Well, dear, I wonder if...

1:11:281:11:32

Mrs Sheldon, I want you to know, I'd be proud to ride in your buggy.

1:11:321:11:36

-Well, yes, but it might not...

-Good idea, Lily. Go along, Tom.

1:11:361:11:41

Yes, sir. I'll put your bag in the buggy.

1:11:411:11:43

-Take care, dear. I'll be back tomorrow.

-I don't like you travelling alone.

1:11:451:11:50

-You can't leave, with a service tomorrow and meetings tonight.

-No, I can't.

1:11:501:11:54

-Goodbye, dear.

-Goodbye.

1:11:561:11:57

Papa, I've been thinking.

1:12:041:12:08

It's my ambition that's caused all the trouble for everybody.

1:12:081:12:12

So I've come to a decision. I'm giving up painting.

1:12:121:12:16

Odd you should say that.

1:12:191:12:21

Why, Papa?

1:12:211:12:22

I wondered, when you're in Pittsburgh,

1:12:231:12:26

I've never had a picture of your Aunt Carrie.

1:12:261:12:29

I, er... had Jean put your paints in the buggy.

1:12:291:12:33

I thought if you didn't mind, you could do that for me.

1:12:331:12:38

If YOU want me to.

1:12:381:12:40

-Just see that it's a good one.

-Oh, I will!

1:12:401:12:43

Goodbye, dear.

1:12:441:12:45

Bye, Papa.

1:12:481:12:49

-Bye, Momma! Bye!

-Bye, Dinah!

-Bye, Momma! Bye!

SHOUTING

1:13:271:13:29

Out of our way! Out of our way!

1:13:291:13:31

-Ha, ha! You're not going anywhere!

-On to City Hall! Teddy Roosevelt's speaking tonight! We'll tell him!

1:13:311:13:39

-You'll never get to City Hall.

-Go on home, you silly hens.

1:13:391:13:44

-Why don't they let them through? They can see the President.

-It's not our business.

1:13:441:13:49

Some among you must want to hear the voice of justice for women.

1:13:491:13:53

To you I say... DERISIVE SHOUTS

1:13:531:13:57

Oh, that's mean! They SHOULD let them through!

1:13:571:14:00

Momma, you're right.

1:14:001:14:02

Somebody's got to make a path for them. Giddy-up, George.

HORSE NEIGHS

1:14:531:14:56

CRASH!

1:15:001:15:02

I'm sick and tired of submitting to this gossip,

1:15:061:15:10

allowing it to grow and disrupt my parish, my work and my family.

1:15:101:15:15

I don't intend to let it go on happening.

1:15:151:15:18

I should never have allowed Lily and Dinah to leave.

1:15:181:15:20

I'm not going to let this break up my family.

1:15:211:15:24

I'm going down to the station, and pray they haven't left.

1:15:251:15:29

No daughter of mine is being sent away because of lying tongues.

PHONE RINGS

1:15:331:15:35

Hello?

1:15:401:15:41

Yes. Yes.

1:15:411:15:43

It...

1:15:451:15:46

Yes! Yes, I'll be right down!

1:15:481:15:50

Fortunately, they...haven't left yet.

1:15:521:15:54

-Andrew...your family?

-Yes, Dan. They were arrested.

1:15:561:15:59

Over there, Reverend. If they're yours, we'll release them.

1:15:591:16:03

Yes, they're mine.

1:16:051:16:07

-Lily, dear, are you all right?

-Yes, dear. Perfectly. We all are.

1:16:101:16:15

Er...what about your eye?

1:16:161:16:18

It's nothing.

1:16:181:16:20

Someone hit me, that's all.

1:16:201:16:22

It's a beauty, isn't it? Well, let's go home.

1:16:221:16:26

We'll want to get something on these bruises.

1:16:261:16:28

Keep your guard up?

1:16:321:16:35

Andrew, I want you to know we did nothing wrong. It wasn't our fault.

1:16:351:16:40

Yes, I know, dear. Ordinary, well-mannered people just...

1:16:401:16:44

don't get into things like this.

1:16:441:16:46

ORGAN PLAYS

1:16:571:17:00

Andrew, I know you've changed your subject for the sermon.

1:17:461:17:50

Have you prepared another?

1:17:501:17:51

No. But...

1:17:531:17:56

I HAVE been thinking about it for quite a while.

1:17:561:17:59

Andrew, concerning your, er, ruminations,

1:17:591:18:02

my advice would be to make no mention of the matter last week.

1:18:021:18:06

You're all very certain that if I forget it, everyone will.

1:18:061:18:10

Time takes care of everything.

1:18:101:18:13

-The less I make of this, the more I protect my opportunity to be bishop.

-Aye!

1:18:131:18:18

Let's not be ashamed of mentioning

1:18:181:18:21

that it's something of concern to you and to your friends here.

1:18:211:18:25

I appreciate that, too.

1:18:251:18:27

Perhaps, Andrew, you'd give us some information

1:18:301:18:33

concerning your, er...ruminations?

1:18:331:18:36

Well, of course, if I weren't concerned about becoming bishop...

1:18:381:18:44

and if I weren't willing to just forget the whole thing...

1:18:441:18:48

..I would have a few things to say. A few points to make.

1:18:491:18:53

To begin with, I would proudly contend

1:18:531:18:56

that my family fought for the rights of individuals.

1:18:561:19:00

I'd point out that with elections...

1:19:001:19:02

I might add it's shameful for members of my own congregation to indulge in petty gossip...

1:19:021:19:09

about my daughter and the young man, both of whom are above reproach.

1:19:091:19:15

Andrew, I implore you ...

1:19:151:19:16

Just a moment. I am not finished...

1:19:161:19:19

with my ruminations.

1:19:191:19:21

I would also say that I, too, am in error.

1:19:221:19:25

I have not taught my people well

1:19:261:19:29

if this sort of thing can happen in my parish.

1:19:291:19:31

I would also confess I was willing to submit to this gossip

1:19:321:19:36

by agreeing to let my daughter leave town.

1:19:361:19:38

I was willing to submit because I was concerned about my possible election as bishop.

1:19:401:19:47

Andrew, you cannae dare say such things!

1:19:471:19:49

You know, as I divulge these ruminations to you,

1:19:491:19:55

I am more and more convinced that I shall speak of these things.

1:19:551:19:59

-Don't you realise...?

-If what my family and I did is wrong,

1:19:591:20:03

I do not deserve to be bishop.

1:20:031:20:06

The only important thing is, I must serve my congregation.

1:20:061:20:10

The first obligation of a minister is to serve.

1:20:101:20:14

I can only serve by speaking the truth.

1:20:141:20:16

You cannae mean to say this in the pulpit?!

1:20:161:20:19

-Yes, Dan.

-< You can't possibly!

1:20:191:20:20

I may even think of more.

1:20:201:20:23

I shall probably say something about how we use words

1:20:231:20:27

like meanness, intolerance and bigotry,

1:20:271:20:30

but somehow always in connection with others, never with ourselves.

1:20:301:20:34

What's happened in the last few days, this gossip,

1:20:341:20:38

is mean, intolerant and bigoted.

1:20:381:20:41

If it isn't pointed out and recognised for what it is,

1:20:411:20:45

who can say what cruel thing it may lead to tomorrow?

1:20:451:20:48

There's no measure of a lie.

1:20:491:20:51

It's...neither little nor big.

1:20:511:20:54

It's always a lie.

1:20:541:20:56

I don't want to see any man judge his neighbour.

1:20:561:21:00

That we must always leave to God.

1:21:001:21:02

You may be more comfortable, Dan, in here.

1:21:051:21:08

No. I'll go. Right or wrong, Andrew,

1:21:081:21:11

I want to be in wi' you at the finish.

1:21:111:21:13

Instead of starting with hymn 127, which was posted for today,

1:21:241:21:28

we will sing hymn 493.

1:21:281:21:31

It begins, "O brother man,

1:21:321:21:35

"hold to thy heart thy brother."

1:21:351:21:37

ORGAN PLAYS

1:21:371:21:40

Well, has no-one in this family anything to say?

1:21:551:21:58

Why the unusual silence?

1:21:581:22:00

It's your sermon, Andrew.

1:22:001:22:02

It made us so proud.

1:22:021:22:04

I want you to know that I...

1:22:051:22:07

I...

1:22:071:22:08

SHE SOBS

1:22:091:22:11

Papa?

1:22:151:22:16

That was the finest...

1:22:161:22:17

That really was the finest...

1:22:191:22:21

SHE SOBS

1:22:231:22:25

What they wanted to tell you, Father, was...

1:22:281:22:30

Well, you were so...

1:22:301:22:32

So... I mean...

1:22:321:22:35

What have you got to say?

1:22:411:22:43

-I'm hungry.

-And so am I.

1:22:431:22:45

Sensible people.

1:22:451:22:47

Can I help?

1:23:041:23:06

No.

1:23:061:23:08

Oh, Tom, thanks for everything you've done. You've been wonderful.

1:23:091:23:14

No. YOU'RE wonderful.

1:23:151:23:19

I didn't have sense enough to see it till now, but, Di...

1:23:191:23:23

Yes, Tom?

1:23:231:23:25

I do know it now. You are.

1:23:251:23:28

I...

1:23:311:23:32

I...I guess I'd better go back.

1:23:341:23:37

Please come in with me.

1:23:371:23:39

-Sure, Di.

-Let me help you.

1:23:401:23:43

Oh, no.

1:23:511:23:53

Di, there's just one thing I want to ask of you.

1:23:531:23:56

Please, don't ever help me!

1:23:561:23:58

< WILD CRY

1:24:031:24:06

Andrew! I've got something...

1:24:091:24:12

Tom, do you suppose...?

1:24:121:24:14

Must a man wait all the day when he has important news?

1:24:141:24:17

Andrew, they've elected you bishop.

1:24:191:24:22

ALL GASP I'm very proud and very happy to be the first to congratulate you.

1:24:221:24:27

Hae you no word for us, Andrew, when I bring you such good tidings?

1:24:291:24:32

Hae you nothing to say?

1:24:381:24:40

Will ye hae white meat or dark, Dan?

1:24:441:24:47

Sit down. Sit down. Bring up another chair.

1:24:471:24:51
