BELL RINGS

0:03:090:03:13

SHOPPERS CHAT

0:03:130:03:17

-Well, Polly, another day, another dollar - to COIN a phrase!

-Another thousand dollars, if I'm in luck!

0:03:170:03:25

-You've only been here two months - even old John Merlin doesn't expect you to sell this joint out!

-Mary...

0:03:250:03:32

-Oh, I think Mr Hargraves is casing us.

-Silly! Probably wondering how I sell out the place every day.

0:03:320:03:39

-Good morning!

-May I remind you that John B Merlin & Son is now OPEN?!

0:03:390:03:45

-You don't need to! When you consider all the stuff I've unloaded...

-We don't have STUFF at John B Merlin!

0:03:450:03:52

-And...

-You don't unload. Yes, sir.

0:03:520:03:55

I'll be glad when the Christmas rush is over, won't you, Mr Hargraves?

0:03:550:04:01

-Oh, not me! If we had another week, I could sell...

-I shall be very glad when it's over!

0:04:010:04:07

-Mainly on account of Miss Parish.

-So I HAVE attracted your attention?

0:04:070:04:13

-You certainly have!

-I knew you'd be impressed by my record! Excuse me, a pigeon...

0:04:130:04:19

Customer, I mean!

0:04:190:04:22

-Morning, JB.

-Morning. In the 47th Street display window is a dummy, wearing a shirt and bow tie.

0:04:240:04:31

-Let's not have that.

-But students...

-Radicals, revolutionists!

-Good morning, JB!

0:04:310:04:38

-I saw one of your floor workers, who is making his own suits at home! Correct that!

-Yes, sir.

0:04:380:04:44

SANTA LAUGHS Merry Christmas!

0:04:440:04:49

HE CONTINUES TO LAUGH

0:04:490:04:53

LAUGHTER STOPS

0:04:540:04:57

-Too much padding. The kids like to sit on your lap and you stick out too far!

-But, sir...

-Yes?

0:04:570:05:04

-HE LAUGHS Merry Christmas!

-Merry Christmas!

0:05:040:05:09

Mr Merlin is right - too much padding!

0:05:120:05:15

But it's all ME!

0:05:150:05:18

HE LAUGHS Merry Christmas, kiddies!

0:05:180:05:23

-Good morning.

-Hello, Esther. Anything on YOUR minds?

-No.

0:05:240:05:28

-There never is!

-WE have a personnel matter in ladies' millinery, but it needn't concern you, JB!

0:05:280:05:36

-So settle it!

-We will.

0:05:360:05:38

-Good morning!

-Good morning.

-From the weekly report, I see the new recreation periods are working out.

0:05:410:05:48

Efficiency is way-y up! And speaking of efficiency, Dad - you're late!

0:05:480:05:53

-Did you stay all night at a 52nd St jam session so you could say that?!

-Dad, it's the East Side now!

0:05:530:06:01

-You can't keep going without sleep.

-I do my work!

-More than your share - that's what bothers me!

-It's youth!

0:06:010:06:08

-Remember?

-..Almost!

0:06:080:06:12

You're not too unhappy here, son?

0:06:120:06:15

-Music doesn't mean more to you?

-Mmm...no.

0:06:150:06:19

You know, back in the 1920s, my idea was to live in Paris and paint.

0:06:200:06:26

-And I did - then the store needed me, so here I am.

-And here

-I

-am. Glad to be aboard.

0:06:260:06:33

Let's have no more sentimentality!

0:06:330:06:36

-Or music!

-This is a business office!

0:06:360:06:38

-BUZZER Mr Merlin is wanted urgently in the employees' lounge.

-Wait...

0:06:380:06:45

-This must be bad news. Let me go - I could handle it best. Sounds like top-drawer stuff!

-Go and handle it!

JARRING NOTES

0:10:050:10:07

-Top-drawer stuff, eh(?)

-Right! Don't tell JB - he doesn't like music!

0:10:140:10:20

-I'll be right back.

-Good luck.

-Thanks.

0:10:220:10:26

-Hey, gorgeous, what are you getting me for Christmas?

-Freddie, you wouldn't drink it!

-Why the hurry?

0:10:270:10:34

-Personnel sent for me. I think they realise what I do for the store.

-This is business. I saw you dance.

0:10:340:10:41

-You were so with it!

-Get to the business!

-The Pink Slipper is having a dance contest tonight.

-Mmm?

0:10:410:10:48

Rock'n'roll. The band leader is my friend AND a judge, so it's fixed!

0:10:480:10:54

-You still need a girl!

-Second prize is 100 - we split it!

-Freddie, I'm poor, but still proud - no, thanks!

0:10:540:11:01

But...!

0:11:010:11:03

Looking for employment, Miller? No, I... Oh, excuse me, sir!

0:11:030:11:08

Mr Creely, the young lady from millinery is here, Miss... Parish.

0:11:080:11:14

I associate ideas to remember names. "Parish" makes me think of church. Send her in.

0:11:140:11:20

Come in, miss.

0:11:200:11:23

-Sit down, Miss Church.

-Thank you. But it's "Parish".

0:11:240:11:28

-Polly Parish.

-Yes, Parish. You are apparently a conscientious worker, so I wanted to talk to you...personally.

0:11:280:11:36

Well, I was sure you would... sooner or later.

0:11:360:11:40

Oh, were you?

0:11:400:11:42

HE CLEARS THROAT Mr Hargraves is fascinated by your efforts, Miss Ch...Parish.

0:11:420:11:49

-He's such a good man, Mr Hargraves.

-I'm glad you think so!

0:11:500:11:54

Unfortunately, he doesn't share the same high opinion of YOU.

0:11:540:12:00

-I beg your pardon?

-In fact, he wants to fire you.

0:12:000:12:04

-So do I.

-He...

0:12:050:12:07

-You what?

-As of tonight. You will receive the usual severance pay.

0:12:070:12:13

You may come to the employees' Christmas party, of course!

0:12:150:12:20

-I don't understand. I sell more than anybody in my department!

-You oversell more than anyone!

0:12:200:12:27

-Oh...

-You're just not JB Merlin & Son material. Yesterday, you sold 23 hats.

0:12:270:12:33

Today, 25 came back!

0:12:330:12:36

-25?

-Two were from the day before!

0:12:360:12:39

We can't tolerate young salespeople with buck fever,

0:12:390:12:44

-who have no idea of the book-keeping expense and bad customer relations you put us to!

-But...

-That is all!

0:12:440:12:51

Yes, sir.

0:12:560:12:58

Oh...

0:13:020:13:03

and a very merry Christmas to you, Miss Church.

0:13:030:13:07

The same to you.

0:13:070:13:10

What's the matter, gorgeous?

0:13:220:13:25

-Are, um... Are you sure we can win that money tonight?

-Baby, it's a lead-pipe cinch!

0:13:310:13:37

-Then I'll go.

-Great, I'll pick you up at 7.00 on the dot.

-OK.

0:13:390:13:44

Uh...AFTER dinner.

0:13:440:13:46

-Oh, Freddie...!

-Honey, this is real glamorous - it's like money in the bank! I'm glad you're so...so...

0:13:460:13:54

happy?!

0:13:540:13:56

Oh, Freddie!

0:13:560:13:58

Are we working you too hard, Miller(?) No, I... No, sir!

0:13:590:14:05

Sorry, sorry. Those stupid salesmen - you can't get a hold of them!

0:14:050:14:10

425...

0:14:110:14:13

427...425...

0:14:130:14:16

Oh, out to lunch. Figures.

0:14:160:14:19

Inorganic ph... Can't even SAY that one!

0:14:210:14:25

BABY CRIES

0:14:330:14:37

Oh...

0:14:390:14:41

Hello!

0:14:430:14:45

-Won't you come in?

-Oh...

0:14:450:14:48

Yes! ..There we are...

0:14:480:14:51

Right in here, Miss, uh...?

0:14:560:14:59

Take your finger out of my mouth.

0:14:590:15:03

-Your name, please?

-Hmm? Polly Parish.

0:15:030:15:06

-Are you employed?

-Hmm? JB Merlin.

0:15:060:15:10

Until tonight, that is. I just lost my job. ..He's so cute...

0:15:100:15:15

Oh...it isn't MY baby.

0:15:160:15:20

It was on the doorstep outside! I...

0:15:200:15:23

No, really! You see, there it was, about to roll off the top step, and I just ran over, and...

0:15:250:15:33

We're here to help you, my dear. We're your friends!

0:15:330:15:37

..Look, it isn't mine!

0:15:370:15:40

I wish it were!

0:15:400:15:43

Let me tell you again, so you get this straight.

0:15:430:15:47

I was outside the employment agency and I turned and saw this bundle on your steps. A baby, I thought.

0:15:470:15:55

So I ran over and scooped it up so that I could...

0:15:550:15:59

Well...

0:15:590:16:01

Honest injun!

0:16:010:16:03

Many mothers tell us the babies are not their own but, from experience, we know it's wise to admit the truth.

0:16:030:16:11

I...

0:16:110:16:13

Oh, now, look here!

0:16:130:16:15

Well, this is ridiculous!

0:16:280:16:31

Well...!

0:16:310:16:33

Oh!

0:16:330:16:35

BABY CRIES

0:16:350:16:38

For heaven's sake...

0:16:430:16:46

I...

0:16:460:16:48

Oh... Oh, no, you don't!

0:16:480:16:51

When I want a family, I'll get married and do it right! Oh, no! It's YOUR baby, not MY baby!

0:16:510:16:59

BABY CRIES

0:16:590:17:02

It's pathetic! The mothers come to us so young these days!

0:17:020:17:07

Ah, well, we know that she'll be at Merlin's until tonight.

0:17:070:17:12

And we know that the Merlins are a charitable family...don't we?

0:17:120:17:17

Go right in, Mr Appleby.

0:17:240:17:28

HE CLEARS THROAT

0:17:300:17:33

Yes?

0:17:350:17:37

-YOU'RE Mr Merlin?

-That's right.

-I thought you'd be older!

0:17:370:17:43

-I will be - it just takes time! What can I do for you, Mr...?

-Appleby.

0:17:430:17:48

I'm from the Atkins Foundling Home.

0:17:490:17:52

-Yes?

-An employee of yours, a young lady, left a baby with us today.

-Yes?

0:17:520:17:58

I checked with your Mr Creely, and she's been discharged! I believe that's why she's abandoned her baby!

0:17:580:18:05

-Mr Merlin, give her back her job.

-It's not my department!

-Mr Merlin...

0:18:050:18:10

If you saw this mother, denying the parenthood of her own child... it would have touched your heart.

0:18:100:18:17

-It was pitiful!

-Suppose you sit down and we discuss it calmly?

-Thank you.

0:18:170:18:23

Get me Mr Hargraves, please.

0:18:230:18:26

Off you go, Miss Parish - to Mr Dan Merlin himself this time!

0:18:280:18:33

-You mean he's seen the light - he wants to apologise?

-What he does is top secret!

0:18:330:18:40

At ease, Mr Hargraves!

0:18:400:18:43

What now - Merlin Junior says a few last words over the body?!

0:18:430:18:47

Here is Miss Parish, Mr Merlin.

0:18:500:18:53

Uh...sit down...MISS Parish?

0:18:560:19:00

Yes, sir. I'm Miss Parish, Mr Merlin.

0:19:000:19:03

-I believe you were discharged today, Miss Parish.

-Yes, sir. Of all the ingratitude I've ever heard of...!

0:19:030:19:11

-After the way I've worked...

-We want you back.

0:19:110:19:14

The loyalty I've...

0:19:140:19:17

-You... You...you want me back, you say?

-That's what I said.

0:19:170:19:23

Well, that's more like it!

0:19:240:19:26

-Miss Parish, don't you think you ought to thank Mr Merlin?

-Oh...thank you, Mr Merlin.

-You're welcome.

0:19:260:19:34

We thought you were trying too hard, overselling. Now we know the reason.

0:19:340:19:40

Well...I was sure SOMEBODY would understand!

0:19:420:19:46

By the way, we're raising your salary 10 a week, as of a week ago.

0:19:460:19:51

Well, thank you!

0:19:510:19:53

But getting your job back and a raise is not your REAL Xmas present.

0:19:530:19:58

N-No?

0:19:580:20:01

No, your Christmas present is the greatest gift a woman could have. It's coming to you at home tonight.

0:20:010:20:09

Perhaps you ought to thank Mr Merlin again?

0:20:090:20:12

Oh...thanks again! It was enough giving me my job back, Mr Merlin.

0:20:120:20:18

-I want you to know I forgive the store and I never hold a grudge!

-That's very big of you.

0:20:180:20:25

-Goodbye.

-Oh, goodbye, sir. Goodbye, Mr...?

0:20:250:20:29

Merely think of me as your guardian angel!

0:20:290:20:33

Well, goodbye, Santa Claus!

0:20:430:20:46

-BUZZ

-Who is it?

0:20:500:20:53

Something from John B Merlin & Son!

0:20:530:20:57

Merry Christmas!

0:20:590:21:01

Holiday greetings from John B Merlin & Son and the Atkins Foundling Home. Oh...

0:21:010:21:08

Don't thank us. We've only done our duty.

0:21:080:21:12

-Just keep doing your duty! You take that baby right out of here!

-But...!

0:21:120:21:17

Oh...you're sick!

0:21:170:21:20

Shame on you!

0:21:200:21:22

-Do you realise what you're saying?

-Yes, I do - that's not my baby!

0:21:220:21:28

-Do you realise Mr Merlin has given you your job back...

-Yes.

-..so that you can raise your child in comfort?

0:21:280:21:35

You want it to be raised as an orphan?

0:21:350:21:38

Oh, now, that's not my baby - I am not its mother!

0:21:380:21:43

-Mrs Wilkins...come!

-Now, you take that baby, or it'll be back at the foundling home before you get there!

0:21:430:21:50

I wouldn't try that, if I were you, and I wouldn't leave it elsewhere, because it'll come back to us...

0:21:500:21:57

and...we have its footprints!

0:21:570:22:00

Footprints?!

0:22:010:22:04

I'm not going to inform Mr Merlin of your attitude.

0:22:040:22:08

Gee-ee!

0:22:110:22:13

BABY GURGLES

0:22:150:22:19

Now, listen, uh...baby... It's nothing personal, I...

0:22:260:22:31

I'd love to have you around, but...

0:22:310:22:33

Take your finger out of your mouth - you want crooked teeth?

0:22:330:22:38

I really couldn't do right by you... No...

0:22:420:22:46

You see...I'm alone, too!

0:22:490:22:52

..That's a cute nose!

0:22:520:22:54

-Who is it?

-The Arthur Murray of the stock department - Frisky Freddie!

0:22:570:23:03

Oh, my!

0:23:050:23:07

Oh, uh... Just a minute, Freddie!

0:23:070:23:11

Uh... Wait just a second!

0:23:110:23:13

There. Now, no biting. Be quiet, baby! That's good.

0:23:130:23:18

-LOUD SCREAM

-Oh...!

0:23:180:23:21

That's all I need! ..Just a minute! ..There.

0:23:210:23:25

That's it, baby. Now, be quiet, baby. Shh!

0:23:250:23:29

Please, quiet, huh, baby? Quiet!

0:23:290:23:32

Oh...!

0:23:320:23:34

-Oh, uh...hello. Freddie, I can't...

-What's new and exciting, gorgeous - besides me, I mean?

0:23:360:23:43

-Well, uh, Freddie, I...

-Hey! Nice joint you've got here!

0:23:430:23:48

Freddie, I can't go out tonight...

0:23:480:23:51

-What do you mean?

-Well, I... I think I'm gonna have a headache!

0:23:510:23:56

-Are you kidding? I borrowed my brother's heap so we'd go in style!

-Gee, I'm sorry.

-Sorry?!

-Well...

0:23:560:24:03

Something's...come up!

0:24:030:24:06

Ah, don't be nervous - it's in the bag! Do you hate money?! The band leader's a pal!

0:24:060:24:12

BABY CRIES

0:24:120:24:15

I just spoke to him on the phone.

0:24:150:24:18

BABY CRIES

0:24:180:24:21

-Funny, I thought I heard a baby crying!

-H-Here?

0:24:210:24:25

Where was I? Oh, yeah, I checked with my pal again, and we can't lose!

0:24:250:24:31

BABY CRIES

0:24:310:24:34

-You talked to him, huh? What did he say?

-He says it's in the bag!

-Great!

0:24:340:24:39

I DO hear a baby crying!

0:24:390:24:42

Oh...THAT?

0:24:420:24:44

Next door. Keeps me awake.

0:24:440:24:47

-Sometimes I think I'll go out of my mind!

-That's tough.

0:24:470:24:52

Polly, this is not dishonest. It's just fixed!

0:24:520:24:56

You don't think a guy like me would do anything crooked? I'm...

0:24:560:25:01

BABY LAUGHS

0:25:010:25:04

What did it do - crawl through the wall?!

0:25:080:25:12

You mean you didn't see the stork flying through(?)

0:25:130:25:17

Oh...!

0:25:170:25:20

Come on, baby. Upsy-daisy.

0:25:210:25:24

-Is it yours?

-No, it isn't mine.

-Then where did it come from?

0:25:240:25:29

-I got it for Christmas(!)

-This Christmas or last?!

0:25:290:25:33

Freddie, question and answer period is over.

0:25:330:25:37

-I'm not going out tonight and that's that!

-It sure is!

0:25:370:25:42

-I got my troubles.

-You sure have!

0:25:420:25:45

Well, I can't win the contest without you, so I'll stay! I'm a family man!

0:25:450:25:50

-Goodnight, Freddie.

-Hey, wait a minute! Wait a minute!

0:25:500:25:55

-I just meant a nice, quiet evening in with the kiddies! That's not so bad!

-Goodnight, Freddie!

-I just...

0:25:550:26:02

Hey, I just thought... Old Man Merlin is on TV about now!

0:26:020:26:07

Getting an award - for penny-pinching in the retail business, probably!

0:26:070:26:12

- Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. - Good evening!

0:26:120:26:17

ANNOUNCER: Tonight, we meet two generations of a great family - the Merlins.

0:26:170:26:23

- Big deal(!) - May I present Mr John B Merlin and his son Dan Merlin,

0:26:230:26:30

in the library of their delightful home at 236 East 63rd Street, New York City.

0:26:300:26:36

-ANNOUNCER: Good evening, gentlemen.

-Good evening, Bill.

-Oh, hi, Mr Rand.

0:26:360:26:42

-JB, I'll bet you have some interesting...

-Yes.

-Oh, I'll bet(!)

0:26:420:26:47

-Let me first say that the magic word for success in merchandising is decentralisation.

-Absolutely, JB(!)

0:26:470:26:55

-We're going out after all.

-Yeah.

0:26:550:26:58

See you in the morning, JB!

0:26:580:27:00

You're not taking that along?!

0:27:000:27:03

-Only part-way - come on!

-You can't...

0:27:030:27:07

You can't take the baby - it's fixed!

0:27:070:27:10

Our success formula is alert merchandising - to put stores where it is easy to shop.

0:27:100:27:17

-A merchandising man who can't accept the impact of modern living is a dinosaur!

-Thank you.

0:27:170:27:24

-Suburban life and the automobile have changed...

-Yes, we all agree, JB.

0:27:240:27:30

But now the younger generation. Dan, what...?

0:27:300:27:34

-I...

-Dan is first and foremost a real merchandising executive!

-I certainly agree with that, but...

0:27:340:27:41

-let's make it personal.

-I go along...

-I know you like to sing, Dan, so why not give our audience a sample?

-OK!

0:27:410:27:49

-Keep your eye on the camera with the red light.

-What?

-The camera with the red light.

0:27:510:27:58

Dan, have you any special romantic interest you can tell us about? Any one girl?

0:27:580:28:05

Oh, I dunno...

0:28:050:28:07

HE STARTS PLAYING

0:28:070:28:10

Although the love of my life and I have never met, I guess as yet...

0:28:100:28:15

# It wasn't meant to be

0:28:150:28:18

# I'm sure Father Time Hand in hand with destiny

0:28:180:28:24

# Is bound to get around to me

0:28:250:28:31

# From what I say, you can gather

0:28:320:28:36

# I face the future rather

0:28:360:28:42

# Optimistically

0:28:420:28:46

# Someday soon

0:28:480:28:52

# On a strange and magic street

0:28:540:28:57

# We will meet, my love, yes

0:28:570:29:00

# You will come along

0:29:000:29:03

# All the joys That were ever denied me

0:29:030:29:11

# All at once Will be walking beside me

0:29:110:29:17

# Somehow, someday soon

0:29:170:29:22

# My sad heart will change its tune

0:29:220:29:26

# From a blue lament Into a beautiful song

0:29:260:29:32

# Until then, I'll keep waiting

0:29:320:29:37

# Waiting, waiting, waiting

0:29:370:29:41

# Patiently

0:29:410:29:45

# Deep inside, this longing grows

0:29:460:29:52

# So, as the old expression goes

0:29:520:29:58

# Someday soon

0:29:580:30:02

# Can't come too soon

0:30:020:30:06

# For me

0:30:060:30:12

# Deep inside, this longing grows

0:30:140:30:20

# So, as the old expression goes

0:30:200:30:26

# Someday soon

0:30:260:30:30

# Can't come too soon

0:30:300:30:35

# For me. #

0:30:350:30:42

That was beautiful, Dan. And someone else is waiting patiently, so we'd better get back to your father.

0:30:440:30:51

This won't take any time at all!

0:31:040:31:07

Goodbye, baby. You most certainly are cute.

0:31:120:31:16

-I'd like to see Mr Merlin.

-Shh!

-The young one.

0:31:250:31:29

Would you tell me, madam, in reference to what?

0:31:290:31:33

I can't take care of this baby - it's his responsibility!

0:31:330:31:38

-< But...

-He got me into this, so he must get me out!

0:31:380:31:43

-My dear madam, the only way you could see Mr Merlin is on your television set.

-Oh, no, you don't!

0:31:430:31:50

< Madam, you cannot leave it there!

0:31:500:31:53

That baby is as much Mr Merlin's as mine! Goodbye, baby!

0:31:530:31:57

-Madam, I cannot accept...

-Come on, let's go!

0:31:570:32:01

-Yeah, let's go - here!

-All right.

0:32:010:32:05

Oh...!

0:32:050:32:07

-Oh, the keys!

-Freddie, in the car, the car!

-Oh, they're in the car!

0:32:090:32:14

ENGINE SPLUTTERS

0:32:140:32:17

Oh...!

0:32:170:32:19

And now, Mr John B Merlin, on behalf of the National Retail Merchandisers...

0:32:210:32:27

THEY MOUTH

0:32:270:32:31

-..to present you with... A baby!

-Nonsense!

0:32:310:32:34

-Are you out of your mind, Adams?

-No, sir.

-Well, why...?

-A young lady left this for you, sir.

-For me?

-Yes.

0:32:340:32:42

-I said we were not receiving guests, but...

-Where is she?

-She left.

-Left?! Come on!

0:32:420:32:48

There she goes! We can catch them!

0:32:500:32:53

There they are, sir - at the corner!

0:32:570:33:00

-Great(!) You thought you would have a headache and I got one!

-Where are you going?

-To drop you off!

0:33:000:33:07

Oh, no, you don't. You promised me some prize money and I'll need it!

0:33:070:33:12

-You think I'm mad, dancing with a friend of the boss?

-Don't be silly! I got that baby by mistake,

0:33:120:33:19

-and young Merlin is the only one who can straighten it out!

-Look, I don't wanna be SEEN with anyone he knows!

0:33:190:33:26

Well, you can take a chance he won't be dancing at The Pink Slipper!

0:33:260:33:32

That's right!

0:33:320:33:34

Oh...

0:33:340:33:37

-The young lady is a perfect stranger to me, sir.

-Not to ME, she isn't!

0:33:380:33:44

JAZZY DANCE MUSIC

0:33:480:33:52

That's their car. They're inside.

0:33:530:33:56

Here you are, sir.

0:34:010:34:04

Nobody gets in without a ticket, buster! How many?

0:34:060:34:10

-Three!

-That'll be 3.

0:34:100:34:13

Here's your change!

0:34:180:34:21

DANCE MUSIC CONTINUES

0:34:210:34:25

-How do you find anybody?

-What colour dress is your wife wearing? We'll help!

-I haven't got a wife!

0:34:420:34:50

Well, don't try and influence us judges with that baby! You dance with a dame, no babies!

0:34:500:34:56

BABY LAUGHS

0:34:560:34:59

That's her!

0:35:030:35:05

-Take this.

-Again?

0:35:240:35:27

-Would you like to enter this contest with me?

-This is very sudden... Let's go, handsome!

0:35:340:35:41

Give it all you've got, baby, but warm up slow - I've already been sick!

0:35:410:35:47

He's a troublemaker - keep an eye on him!

0:36:010:36:05

Lyle, take the gate!

0:36:060:36:09

Sorry, pal - come back again soon(!)

0:36:130:36:17

I must be crazy - I thought I saw young Merlin!

0:36:170:36:21

You didn't see Old Man Merlin too?!

0:36:210:36:24

Sister, off the floor!

0:36:290:36:32

I said you were through! Come on, out!

0:36:320:36:35

Oh...! Gee, I'm sorry!

0:36:370:36:40

-This is the worst night of my life.

-Why, you...!

0:36:400:36:44

-Take your hands off me!

-I knew this guy was gonna be trouble!

0:36:440:36:49

Coming right up, mac!

0:36:520:36:54

-Your baby, sir.

-Thanks, Adams(!)

0:36:560:36:59

-Hey, bud, we're going inside. If you describe your wife, we'd be happy to...

-Oh, shut up!

-Excuse me(!)

0:37:000:37:08

-Ah... You said it was in the bag!

-How did I know we'd be so good we'd win...

0:37:290:37:35

-first prize?

-Oh...

0:37:350:37:38

-Goodnight, Freddie.

-Goodnight!

0:37:400:37:43

-Goodnight, Freddie!

-Mm-hm...

0:37:520:37:55

-Well, goodnight, Freddie.

-How about having a drink together, gorgeous?

0:38:080:38:14

-I haven't any liquor.

-You got water!

-They...turned it off!

0:38:140:38:19

-You're not going to stand here and let a man die of thirst?

-Well...

-Water!

0:38:190:38:24

-Water!

-Shh!

0:38:240:38:26

-Shh!

-Hello, M-M-M-M...

0:38:260:38:29

-Shh!

-I'm sorry, I was dying of thirst and Polly wanted a drink!

-I...?

-I didn't...

0:38:290:38:35

No, you're right. Goodnight, boss!

0:38:350:38:38

Shh!

0:38:380:38:41

-Mr Merlin, may I ask...?

-Shh!

-(May I ask what you're doing in my...?)

0:38:410:38:46

THE... The landlady was kind enough to let me - us - in out of the cold!

0:38:460:38:52

We've been here for two hours - crying all the time!

0:38:520:38:56

-Well, I'm sorry.

-You should be.

-Listen...

-YOU listen... Come here.

0:38:560:39:01

You are going to listen to me. Your conduct is the worst I've ever seen.

0:39:020:39:07

-Would it interest you to know I'm not the mother?

-Denying your own child - that's low!

0:39:070:39:14

-All right - are you through?

-No.

0:39:160:39:19

No, I have just one small thing to add.

0:39:190:39:22

You're fired! And when you look for another job, don't give us as a reference, because if you do...

0:39:220:39:30

I'll explain your charming character to them personally!

0:39:300:39:35

-Why, that's...that's persecution!

-Call it whatever you want!

0:39:350:39:40

-HE CLEARS THROAT

-Miss Parish?

0:39:450:39:49

Have you decided to ask for your job back?

0:39:510:39:55

Or will you let that baby starve?

0:39:550:39:58

Hmm?

0:39:580:39:59

BABY GURGLES

0:40:050:40:09

-I'd like my job back, Mr Merlin.

-Well, that's better!

0:40:150:40:20

Miss Parish, I want you to know I'm only doing this for your own good.

0:40:200:40:26

I'm...not as bad as you think.

0:40:280:40:30

Isn't there some legal way to make the father support the baby?

0:40:300:40:36

-I don't want to have anything to do with him.

-You don't?

0:40:380:40:42

He used to beat me!

0:40:430:40:46

-He didn't?!

-He did.

0:40:460:40:49

See that?

0:40:500:40:53

Coffee pot!

0:40:550:40:58

-Why, that...!

-Ah...

0:40:580:41:00

Don't you worry about a thing. The store is behind you...and the baby.

0:41:010:41:07

-Oh, Mr Merlin... The baby didn't do THAT to you!

-Oh...no.

0:41:070:41:12

You see, uh...I went dancing, too.

0:41:120:41:15

-Goodnight.

-Oh, goodnight!

0:41:150:41:18

-Thank you. Goodnight!

-Goodnight.

0:41:180:41:21

Gee-ee!

0:41:230:41:25

Well, thanks for the job, anyway. Listen, we'd better get undressed.

0:41:350:41:41

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:41:410:41:44

Oh, my.

0:41:440:41:46

BABY GURGLES

0:41:460:41:49

-I wanna talk to you.

-I was just going to bed.

-About the baby.

-The baby...

0:41:490:41:55

You see, I was fired from my job today, and... You won't believe it.

0:41:550:42:00

Then I got my job back, but the reason... Oh, you won't go for it!

0:42:000:42:06

Then I lost my job, and... The baby came, he was delivered...

0:42:060:42:11

Oh, it's just getting worse!

0:42:110:42:14

Mrs Dugan, what am I going to do?

0:42:140:42:17

Oh, uh...

0:42:240:42:27

Well...

0:42:280:42:30

-you got to take care of your little baby.

-Oh, Mrs Dugan!

0:42:300:42:35

Oh... Oh! Mrs Dugan!

0:42:350:42:38

-Mrs Dugan, that's not my little baby!

-He looks just like you!

0:42:380:42:43

Hey, you're a cutie! Your mother and me are going to have a lot of fun taking care of you!

0:42:430:42:50

-You seem kinda damp. Seems kinda damp!

-Damp?

0:42:500:42:54

-Oh...

-What's its name?

0:42:550:42:58

Joan!

0:42:590:43:01

JOHN? That's a nice name!

0:43:060:43:09

Polly. Psst!

0:43:230:43:25

-Oh...

-How about putting in a good word for me - to you-know-who?

0:43:250:43:30

-Don't talk so loud - you'll wake me.

-Polly, the assistant floor-walker's job is open in this section!

0:43:300:43:37

A word from you to you-know-who and I could stop pushing this stupid truck.

0:43:370:43:42

Miller? Get that truck out of the aisle. Yes, sir!

0:43:420:43:47

That's it, Miss Parish. Don't try too hard. Don't oversell.

0:43:490:43:54

Oh...

0:43:560:43:58

-Crowded today, Dan.

-Oh, pardon me for a moment.

0:43:590:44:03

How are you?

0:44:060:44:08

Mmm...I...

0:44:080:44:11

I can hear you all right, but I can't see you.

0:44:110:44:15

Haven't been asleep for two nights.

0:44:160:44:19

Other people have babies. They manage.

0:44:220:44:25

-But I got mine so suddenly!

-The world is full of surprises.

0:44:250:44:30

-Oh, Dan?

-Yes?

-Mother and child doing well, I take it?

-As well as can be expected.

0:44:330:44:39

-Good morning, Mr Dan!

-Good morning.

-How is our little mother?

0:44:390:44:44

Beat, Mr Hargraves. Very beat.

0:44:440:44:47

Hargraves. Yes?

0:44:470:44:49

Aren't you short an assistant floor-walker here? Yes.

0:44:530:44:57

On a seniority basis, Fred Miller is entitled to the promotion.

0:45:000:45:05

He's an idiot, but he's been here a long time! Inform the idiot of his good luck.

0:45:050:45:11

But...

0:45:110:45:13

Miller! Yes, sir? I've been watching your work.

0:45:180:45:22

It's...adequate. Thank you, sir.

0:45:220:45:26

Tomorrow, report to me in a blue suit and take a carnation. You follow? Yes, sir! Thank you, sir!

0:45:260:45:34

A SMALL carnation. Yes, sir!

0:45:340:45:37

Go-o-orgeous! That's what I call service!

0:45:410:45:44

What...?

0:45:470:45:49

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:46:030:46:04

One more bite. Hup, hup, here we go. ..In!

0:46:040:46:08

R-R-R-Rup!

0:46:080:46:10

Isn't that the most disgusting stuff you've ever tasted? Nobody can cook it like me!

0:46:100:46:17

-KNOCK ON DOOR

-Come in!

0:46:170:46:20

-Good evening!

-Hi!

0:46:200:46:24

Come on in.

0:46:240:46:26

I was walking through the book department and saw this.

0:46:260:46:31

"How To Bring Up Your Baby Scientifically" by Dr Ernest Egelman. I couldn't put it down!

0:46:310:46:38

I'll probably be too busy taking care of the baby to read it!

0:46:380:46:43

W-Want to sit down?

0:46:430:46:45

OK, let's have a big one.

0:46:470:46:49

-Come on, a big one.

-How do you know you're doing that right?

0:46:490:46:54

Uh...

0:46:540:46:56

Well, baby opens his mouth, I put the food in and he swallows it!

0:46:560:47:01

From there on, he's on his own.

0:47:010:47:04

-Come on, now.

-Here we are - "Feeding", with a capital F!

0:47:040:47:09

That figures!

0:47:090:47:11

There you go.

0:47:110:47:14

"Now, after the food is prepared,

0:47:140:47:17

"the mother will - A - get a spoon..."

0:47:170:47:20

Could THIS be one(?) Hmm!

0:47:210:47:24

"B - take a spoonful of food and...

0:47:240:47:27

"..place on a piece of gauze."

0:47:280:47:30

-What?

-Place on a piece of gauze!

0:47:320:47:35

What for?

0:47:380:47:41

Miss Parish... will you please do as the book says?

0:47:410:47:45

-A doctor with 20 years' experience should know what he's talking about - believe me!

-Oh...

0:47:450:47:52

Well...

0:47:520:47:55

Oh...

0:47:550:47:57

Next?

0:47:570:47:59

"And gently rub into the navel."

0:47:590:48:02

"And gently rub into the...

0:48:110:48:14

"navel"!

0:48:140:48:16

Oh, this is ridiculous!

0:48:180:48:21

Miss Parish, you see, it's probably to adjust the temperature of the baby's stomach to the food!

0:48:210:48:28

I think it's very logical!

0:48:280:48:30

Well...

0:48:310:48:33

Well, I'll see...

0:48:350:48:37

Oh, I never heard of such a thing!

0:48:400:48:43

-This book...

-Let me see that book!

-I read very well - I've done it for years!

-I read too, Mr Merlin!

0:48:430:48:50

"Take a spoonful of food and...place on a piece of gauze and gently rub into the navel"!

0:48:510:48:58

THAT is exactly what I said!

0:48:580:49:01

Well, I am not rubbing any food into this baby's navel!

0:49:020:49:07

SHE CLEARS THROAT

0:49:160:49:19

"To relieve gas on a child's stomach,

0:49:190:49:23

"take a spoonful of warm oil and...

0:49:230:49:26

"place on a piece of gauze and gently rub into the navel"!

0:49:260:49:31

-A few Christmas presents from John B Merlin & Son.

-Thank you, John B Merlin & Son!

0:49:360:49:43

-I'll put them under the tree.

-Come on, I'll put you to sleep. Come on.

0:49:430:49:48

-Oh!

-Excuse me.

-Pardon me.

0:53:290:53:35

Yes, sir!

0:53:350:53:37

Break it up, Mary. Sure, JB(!)

Polly, can I talk to you alone? No.

0:53:430:53:46

I'm talking to Polly!

0:53:460:53:49

Listen, I'm going to a costume party. You come as what you OUGHT to be.

0:53:490:53:55

- Will you take a rock and crawl out from under it? - Keep out of this!

0:53:550:54:00

Do you want to come and kick up your heels? Speaking of heels...

0:54:000:54:06

I told you to keep out of this!

0:54:060:54:09

-How about it, baby? You'd be going first-class, it's all free!

-Talk to my lawyer! ..Lawyer?

0:54:090:54:16

Have you thought of dropping dead? We would step over you.

0:54:160:54:21

-I ought to report you.

-Report us both!

-Oh...!

Nothing, dear. Absolutely nothing. But are you under the impression that we have a date tonight?!

0:54:460:54:53

Yes, uh...I'm afraid I am!

0:54:530:54:56

Well, the last thing you said to me, ten days ago, was that you'd call!

0:54:560:55:02

-I should apologise...the usual rush at the store...

-I'm very sorry(!)

0:55:020:55:07

You'll just have to go stag tonight!

0:55:070:55:11

-Well, thanks anyway, Louise. I'll find someone.

-Oh, of course, darling(!)

-I'm not alone... No...

-I sort of hoped, uh...

-What?

0:55:390:55:42

-That Dan might give you a buzz.

-On New Year's Eve?

0:55:420:55:46

Imagine where he's going - and all the girls who'd like to go with him.

0:55:460:55:51

-Polly, why not tell him the truth about Johnny?

-Much too complicated!

0:55:510:55:56

Besides, he'd never believe me.

0:55:560:55:59

-You know, it's funny...

-Hmm?

-Well, at first I was afraid they wouldn't take Johnny back.

0:55:590:56:06

Now I'm afraid they might!

0:56:060:56:09

-You're really serious about keeping Johnny, aren't you?

-He looks like me.

0:56:100:56:16

Come on, you'll be late for the party.

0:56:160:56:19

-You're wasting valuable time.

-Oh, they'll wait!

-Oh... but I had a wonderful time, Dan.

1:08:071:08:12

The best night of my life.

1:08:121:08:15

So did I, Polly.

1:08:151:08:17

Except I didn't dance one dance or get a single New Year's kiss!

1:08:341:08:37

Miss Parish...

1:08:371:08:39

you're fired.

1:08:391:08:42

Mr Merlin!

1:08:571:08:59

You're...rehired.

1:09:001:09:03

On second thought...you're fired!

1:09:041:09:07

I think I'd better have my...job back...right away!

1:09:261:09:31

You're hired!

1:09:311:09:33

I...I feel kind of strange!

1:09:361:09:39

You know something?

1:09:391:09:42

I feel the same way!

1:09:421:09:44

# I never felt

1:09:441:09:48

# This way before

1:09:481:09:51

# I never dreamed

1:09:531:09:55

# That this would happen

1:09:551:10:00

# A warm caress

1:10:011:10:03

# From more or less a stranger

1:10:031:10:08

# And oh, so suddenly

1:10:081:10:11

# You mean oh, so much to me

1:10:111:10:18

# I never felt

1:10:181:10:21

# I could melt this way before

1:10:211:10:26

# Or that a kiss

1:10:261:10:29

# Could take my heart for granted

1:10:291:10:35

# Night after night

1:10:351:10:38

# I've waited and I've wondered Darling, where you are

1:10:381:10:44

# And there you are

1:10:451:10:47

# What a breathless love affair you are

1:10:471:10:52

# I may not know how real Or how unreal

1:10:521:10:58

# This may be

1:10:581:11:01

# I only know I never felt this way

1:11:021:11:09

# Before. #

1:11:091:11:12

Goodnight.

1:11:221:11:24

-Goodnight.

-And "Smorgas", for the start of a perfect new year.

1:11:251:11:30

Smorgas to you!

1:11:301:11:33

Well...

1:11:331:11:35

goodnight!

1:11:351:11:37

Goodnight.

1:11:371:11:40

1:12:511:12:56

Oh, I'm...

1:12:561:12:58

Happy New Year! No...

1:13:081:13:11

Smorgas?

1:13:111:13:13

Watch our property!

1:13:281:13:31

This head is worth more than yours is!

1:13:311:13:34

Don't just stand here - back to...

1:13:361:13:39

You lost your head! Right, stupid, clean it up!

1:13:431:13:47

Hold your breath!

1:13:471:13:49

I've said it before and I'll say it again - he is an idiot!

1:13:501:13:55

Remember, he is YOUR idiot!

1:13:551:13:58

Hiya, gorgeous, did you miss a ball on New Year's Eve!

1:13:581:14:03

-A miss is as good as a mile, they say!

-Agh!

1:14:031:14:06

-That's OK, honey - no hard feelings! I still go for the domestic type! I thought this weekend...

-Freddie...

1:14:061:14:14

You have the lowest mind and the highest hopes. And if you don't stop bothering me, I'll report you.

1:14:141:14:21

-Hey, now, wait a minute!

-Uh-oh, Dan Merlin!

-The number one boy, eh?

1:14:211:14:26

We don't want to lose our connections!

1:14:261:14:29

-How's the baby?

-Fine, thank you! He sleeps on his stomach all the time.

-And you?

1:14:291:14:35

-Well, not on my stomach...but all the time!

-In that case, would you like to go for a drive on Sunday?

1:14:351:14:43

I'd love to, but your car may be a little cool for the baby.

1:14:431:14:47

Yes, I...I suppose it would.

1:14:471:14:51

-I'll be in the park Sunday - with all the other mothers.

-Oh...

1:14:541:15:00

I'll try to get over.

1:15:001:15:02

Well... Oh...

1:15:021:15:05

-Creely, do you have a personnel problem?

-Yes, young Miller.

1:15:071:15:12

His carnation has gone to his head!

1:15:151:15:18

-If it's OK, I'll put him back in stock.

-That's up to Mr Hargraves. He's head of the flower brigade!

1:15:181:15:25

Take the controls, Hargraves. Yes, sir!

1:15:251:15:29

Good morning, Mr Hargraves! I trust young Dan didn't have anything troublesome on his mind?

1:15:321:15:39

Do you follow me?

1:15:471:15:49

Miller, we've decided you're an idio...you're inadequate. Report back to the stockroom!

1:15:491:15:56

But...

1:15:561:15:58

I see you got your flower picked. Put this away until summer, BOY! They can't do this!

1:16:041:16:11

I know where the body's buried! So crawl in with it! Grr-r!

1:16:111:16:16

I'll talk to Mr Creely.

1:16:171:16:19

"Mr John...B..."

1:16:301:16:33

HUSKY VOICE: This is for JB Merlin, personally.

1:16:451:16:50

Very good, sir. Will you wait for a reply? Wait? Reply? No! No!

1:16:501:16:56

-Letter for you, sir.

-Where's Mr Dan?

-He went for a walk in the park, sir.

1:16:591:17:05

"This is to let you know that you're a grandfather."

1:17:081:17:12

"This is to let you know that you're a grandfather." Grandfather?! No-o!

1:17:201:17:25

"If you don't believe me, ask your son and a girl whose name I shan't mention! Yours truly, a friend."

1:17:251:17:33

Grandfather!

1:17:331:17:35

GRANDfather!

1:17:351:17:38

Oh... ADAMS!

1:17:381:17:41

-ADAMS!

-Sir?

-What park?

-I'm sorry?

-What park did Mr Dan go to?

1:17:411:17:45

-One downtown, sir.

-Downtown is full of parks!

-Yes, sir.

-Get my hat!

-Yes.

1:17:451:17:51

Coat! Tie! Vest! Shirt! Overcoat! Scarf!

1:17:511:17:54

-There we go!

-Hi!

-Oh, hello, Dan!

-Morning, Johnny!

1:17:571:18:03

-HE GURGLES

-What does that mean?

-Good morning!

1:18:031:18:08

Oh...I beg your pardon, John.

1:18:081:18:10

Well, thank you!

1:18:101:18:13

Oh...the news of my raise came through yesterday. Do I deserve two in a row? How can I ever thank you?

1:18:151:18:22

Answer number one - yes.

1:18:221:18:24

-Answer number two - you needn't try. I had selfish reasons for giving you more pay.

-Nothing personal, I hope?

1:18:241:18:32

-Well, sort of. Old John Parish here is involved.

-I don't understand.

1:18:321:18:37

Now you can afford a part-time nurse. Hire Mrs Dugan.

1:18:371:18:41

-Johnny won't be on your hands so much.

-But I want him on my hands!

1:18:411:18:46

-You seem to have come a long way for a girl who wouldn't admit he was yours.

-Well, I...

1:18:461:18:53

He looks like me!

1:18:541:18:57

Doesn't he look like the coffee pot thrower?!

1:18:571:19:00

Yes, I... I suppose he looks like him.

1:19:041:19:08

-Maybe that'll bring him back. He may want...

-No, he won't.

1:19:081:19:13

-That baby's mine, Dan, and he'll stay mine.

-Yours and the coffee pot thrower's!

1:19:131:19:19

We'd better stop this discussion. I'm not experienced enough to take care of TWO babies!

1:19:191:19:26

-Well... Nice, bright day! Perfect day for the park!

-Mr Merlin!

-Dad!

1:19:271:19:33

-Polly, this is my father.

-How do you do?

-How do you do? And who is this?

1:19:331:19:38

This is Miss Parish's little boy.

1:19:381:19:41

A boy!

1:19:431:19:46

Would you mind - if I were careful -

1:19:471:19:50

would you let me hold him, just a minute?

1:19:501:19:54

Of course, Mr Merlin.

1:19:551:19:58

MR MERLIN CHUCKLES

1:19:581:20:01

BABY GURGLES

1:20:011:20:04

I know that chin!

1:20:041:20:06

-What's his name?

-Uh...

1:20:091:20:11

John!

1:20:111:20:13

Thanks for that, anyway.

1:20:131:20:16

Is there something I can do for you, sir?

1:20:181:20:22

Oh, you've done it!

1:20:221:20:24

-I wouldn't keep John out much longer. It's chilly.

-Dad? You're acting strangely.

1:20:241:20:31

-What's the matter?

-I will discuss this with you at home.

1:20:311:20:35

Good day, uh...MISS Parish.

1:20:351:20:39

Oh, no! Excuse me!

1:20:441:20:46

Dad!

1:20:461:20:48

Dad! Wait a minute! Wait! Wait!

1:20:481:20:52

Oh-h-h!

1:20:571:21:00

Oh, Johnny!

1:21:031:21:05

You trap everybody!

1:21:051:21:08

-Look here...!

-Now...!

1:21:121:21:14

-Morning, sir.

-Good morning, Adams.

1:21:141:21:17

BOTH TOGETHER: Now...!

1:21:241:21:27

-I

-do the talking. 20 years I've been waiting. What for? A grandson!

1:21:271:21:33

But, Dad...

1:21:331:21:35

Oh, excuse me, sir.

1:21:361:21:38

-Dad...

-My grandson needs a decent home! Respectable married parents!

-Listen...

-Not until you're honest!

1:21:461:21:53

Just listen...

1:21:531:21:55

Oh...excuse me, sir.

1:21:571:22:00

-Now...

-Dan, you're going to marry that girl and bring my grandson into this house!

-You haven't any grandson!

1:22:091:22:17

-Can't you understand?

-Do you think I'm in my dotage?! I saw the baby, the girl and you!

1:22:171:22:24

And I have other information - a letter! I'd know that baby anywhere. He looks exactly like me!

1:22:241:22:31

I don't know if you need a psychiatrist - you may - but you certainly need glasses!

1:22:311:22:38

Oh, do I? Let me tell you what I'm going to do, with or without glasses.

1:22:381:22:43

I'm going to have my grandchild, in spite of you or his mother! Even if I have to go to the Supreme Court!

1:22:431:22:51

-You are the stubbornest man I ever saw!

-Don't you dare leave without my permission!

1:22:511:22:57

Haven't we any spoons in this house?!

1:23:011:23:04

Oh... Excuse me, sir.

1:23:041:23:06

KNOCK ON DOOR

1:23:081:23:11

(Just a minute!)

1:23:111:23:13

-Hi!

-Hi.

1:23:161:23:19

Oh...

1:23:201:23:22

Don't laugh - the joke may be on you!

1:23:241:23:27

-What?

-My father wants the baby. He's probably sending for lawyers.

-He can't! Johnny belongs to me!

1:23:271:23:35

-Then dig up that coffee pot thrower to testify...

-I... I can't.

1:23:351:23:40

You must take me to see your father!

1:23:401:23:43

You don't understand. He's gone off the reservation and he's doing war whoops! ..He wanted me to marry you.

1:23:431:23:51

He wanted to set up a ready-made family just so he'd have a grandson.

1:23:511:23:57

He's gone crazy!

1:23:571:24:00

Well...

1:24:011:24:03

he must be... if he thought I'D marry you!

1:24:031:24:07

-Oh, Polly...I didn't mean it that way!

-Please go!

1:24:071:24:11

-I didn't realise how that sounded!

-The baby's taking... Please go!

1:24:111:24:17

-Polly...

-Please!

1:24:171:24:19

Mrs Dugan, I'm in terrible trouble!

1:24:511:24:54

-I think I'll have to leave town. He's getting lawyers. He's going to take Johnny!

-Who, young Mr Merlin?

1:24:561:25:03

No, old Mr Merlin. He thinks Johnny's his grandson!

1:25:031:25:08

-Ain't he?

-No!

1:25:081:25:11

You see, that day on my lunch hour, I just happened to be going...

1:25:111:25:16

Oh, I wish I could explain, Mrs Dugan, but I...

1:25:161:25:20

-Oh...

-That's Mike, my sister's son, down from Harvard for the weekend.

1:25:201:25:25

Miss Parish is the one with Johnny. ..Harvard - they all look that way!

1:25:251:25:31

-Hi.

-Hi!

-He'll send someone to ask me questions and I won't be able to answer them!

1:25:311:25:37

Miss Parish, this situation suggests that if your infant had a father, there would be no need for concern!

1:25:371:25:45

-They generally do, you know.

-I kn...

1:25:451:25:49

Yes...that's right!

1:25:511:25:54

Yeah... we just need an old man for Johnny!

1:25:541:25:58

No, I'm too young and innocent! Hey, Daddy, where's the cigars? What cigars?!

1:26:011:26:07

HE WHISTLES

1:26:071:26:11

-Miller! I want to talk to you.

-Yes, sir?

1:26:111:26:14

-You know Miss Parish well, don't you?

-Polly? I hardly know her name!

-Who's the father of her baby?

1:26:141:26:22

-Not me!

-Did you ever meet the father?

-No, sir. I don't think there is one!

1:26:221:26:28

-What?!

-I think she got it like... winning a raffle!

1:26:281:26:33

-Miller?

-Yes, sir?

-Would you like your carnation back?

-Would I?!

-All right, come with me.

-Yes, sir.

1:26:331:26:40

-We have Mr Wharton on the phone, sir.

-Wharton? Hold this. Don't drop it.

1:26:481:26:53

-Hello.

-Mr and Mrs Clancy are here.

-Never heard of them. Throw them out! ..Wharton, where are you? Skiing?!

1:26:551:27:02

-A lawyer, your age?

-It's about the baby.

-I need you here. Something...

1:27:021:27:07

MY baby? Well, show them in! ..No, Wharton, I wasn't talking to you. I haven't had a baby!

1:27:071:27:14

Please be seated.

1:27:151:27:18

Mrs Clancy? I thought you were Miss Parish.

1:27:231:27:27

Oh, that's the name I go by at the store. Mr Clancy - Mike - and I have been married for two years.

1:27:271:27:35

Y-Yes, sir. Two years. Give or take a few weeks.

1:27:351:27:39

-Your son told us there seems to be some misunderstanding about...our baby.

-YOUR baby?

1:27:391:27:46

Yes, sir. Mrs Clancy is the mother and I, of course...

1:27:461:27:50

I hope that clears up any wrong ideas you may have had.

1:27:501:27:55

It's as though there had been a death in the family.

1:27:571:28:01

Now, then, Dad, here is the father!

1:28:061:28:09

Uh, Mr Merlin, my wife - Miss Parish - is a...is...is...

1:28:091:28:15

is a very nervous woman, and...and your son told me...

1:28:151:28:20

that you...you want to take our son away from us.

1:28:201:28:24

Uh...

1:28:241:28:26

You scared Miss Parish!

1:28:261:28:29

Mr Merlin, just how much, I ask you, are we supposed to give up for the store?

1:28:291:28:36

-Hmm?

-See him?

1:28:361:28:39

That's the father SHE brought round! You two have slipped up - you've got one too many!

1:28:391:28:45

-So...you finally showed up?

-I was unable to arrive more promptly - I am at university!

1:28:471:28:53

-That was charming, running out on her, so you could go to school(!)

-Dan, it's all over. The jig is up!

1:28:531:29:00

Come here.

1:29:021:29:04

You know what this is?

1:29:041:29:07

-As an assumption, I'd say a coffee pot!

-That's a good assumption from you!

1:29:071:29:13

-Ow!

-You can't do that!

-Who's going to stop me?

-You're not impressing me!

1:29:131:29:18

-As for you, I'm going to prosecute you for...something!

-Mr Merlin, your son made me do it - HE'S the father!

1:29:181:29:26

-HE'S the father!

-I'm not, I'm a Harvard man!

1:29:261:29:30

Wait...I don't care who the father is - I'M the grandfather!

1:29:301:29:34

Sir, "Mother" just left.

1:29:371:29:39

-Left?!

-She'll take the baby!

1:29:391:29:42

THEY ALL SHOUT

1:29:421:29:46

You're a Harvard man?!

1:29:471:29:49

-Which tenant do you want?

-You know!

-She's gone!

-Where's my grandson?

-Gone too!

-She hasn't had time to go!

1:30:151:30:23

-Hasn't had time!

-Go ahead - I've got the key!

1:30:231:30:26

-Mr Dugan, I must see her.

-I'm not going to bandy words with you - where's that child?

1:30:261:30:33

-Where is my grandchild? Answer me, woman! I am John B Merlin, chairman of the company!

-Mrs Dugan...

1:30:331:30:40

I have money, lawyers and a vindictive personality!

1:30:401:30:45

-Mrs...

-Now I've explained to a woman of limited brains, what do you say?

1:30:451:30:50

Where did you get that hat, John?!

1:30:501:30:53

BABY GURGLES

1:30:551:30:58

Polly? Mrs Dugan, please, she must be...

1:31:011:31:05

Hello, darling, coochy-coochy-coochy!

1:31:051:31:09

-You're old enough for a grandfather, anyway!

-Thank you! ..Coochy-coochy!

1:31:091:31:14

Why don't you leave me alone?

1:31:211:31:23

-I can't.

-Well, you'll have to from now on! Go away!

-I can't.

1:31:231:31:29

You're not going to get Johnny - you, your father or anybody! I love him! He looks like me!

1:31:291:31:35

-My father says Johnny looks like HIM.

-Let me tell you something...
