5:01 am
- a dollar a share, that cheap? - yeah, it's a brand new company, the price hasn't had a chance to go up, yet. - what company is it? - blue hill copper corporation. now this guy burdick, he's the president and he told me that as soon as they get the mine started, in about a week the price is going to skyrocket. now, they're trying to keep the whole thing a secret, but blue hill corporation owns a whole mountain of copper ore. so, when they get going it's going to be the biggest copper mining company in the whole world! - wow. - so, you can see why i need the fifty bucks. say, what about the fifty for the stuff? - oh, i've changed my mind. - why? - i'm gonna buy some of that stock.

(audience laughs) and, i'll prove it to you. father's going to come home innocent, unaware of the $50 trap that's waiting for him.
5:03 am

5:04 am
- don't i have to spend a little to make a little? - no, i told you, you don't have to spend anything. in fact, you don't have to invest one penny. - well, it's different from past deals, i'll say that much for it. you know, that new slip cover's gonna look alright. how about putting the same thing on the chair here? - you see what this is, dad, it's a stock deal. - oh, no. - i was talking to mother. (audience laughs) - i know whenever you mention stock, everyone things there's something phony about it. - not necessarily, the stock is just as good as the company behind it. good strong company, good stock. usually a good investment. - well, that's what this is. now, a fellow named burdick, he buys gas at the gas station. he's the president of the company. (audience laughs) - [bud] drives a car a block long, wears imported suits. (audience laughs) - [jim] i thought i didn't have to buy anything in this deal.

- oh, what's this, three dresses for the senior prom? - [betty] oh, i'm only keeping one. miss rogers at the fashion center sent them out on approval so i can see which one i like best. they're all about the same price, which is plenty, about $45. - oh, but you have your white chiffon. - oh mother, i've worn that to everything but the football games. you and father don't have to worry about the money. i've been saving up for this for months.
5:09 am
- sure. - [kathy] well he is, i heard him talking talking to daddy out in the garage. - well, bud, doesn't it seem a little odd to you that the president of the company would be out peddling the stock? - oh, he's not peddling it, dad. he's doing me a favor letting me buy it. - oh, come on, bud. - he told me he's only doing this for a few of his friends. - [bud] bill shepherd (loud car honk) works at the gas station, he's buying some. and mr. hofstadter, you know who owns the lumber yard? he's buying a thousand shares, so it must be good. - well, old hofstadter doesn't throw his money around. - oh, you can't really tell what this one looks like til you put it on but it's the dreamiest of all. -[kathy] oh, let me see. - [betty] oh, don't smear cookies on it! - there's no possible way you can lose, dad, so what do ya say? - all right, if you're sure you can manage it, you can have the $50. (door slams) - thanks, dad (audience laughs) - you're not giving him $50 to buy that stock? - no, i'm not giving it to him.
5:10 am
i'm borrowing $50 at six percent interest, and i'm gonna pay him back in two weeks, just like i was borrowing it from a bank. - bud, how can you pay back $50 in two weeks? you only make 15 a week at the gas station. - okay, whats two times 15? that's 30 right there. and bill shepherd's remodeling the gas station, so i know i can make another 20 in overtime. - don't you think you're just throwing the money away? - throwing it away? mother, did people throw money away when they bought stock in the first telephone company, huh? or the first railroad, or the first oil well? no, they made millions! (thump) (audience laughs) - yes, but this isn't the first copper company. - but it's the first stock in this company and it's gonna go sky high , it's got to. -really bud, if this stock were any good do you think they'd be out selling it to boys in gas stations? - well, i'm not a boy in a gas station. (audience laughs) see, that's the trouble. all you think i'm still a goofy kid with no sense at all.
5:11 am
i know what i'm doing. - [kathy] hi, daddy! - [jim] hello, kitten. you're just in time, we're going to have a fashion show. - [margaret] hello, dear. - what's this fashion show about, betty buying more dresses? - no, she's still trying to make up her mind about those formals she has out on approval from the fashion center. -for pete's sake, she's had them nearly two weeks. - i spoke to mrs. jebsen of the fashion - [kathy] hurry! - [margaret] center today, she said - [jim] all right. - [margaret] there was no hurry. - [kathy] betty, come on, we're all ready! - [bettty] be right down. - take your seats please, we're almost ready to start. - l right. - with this big crowd, we're lucky to get seats. - ladies and gentlemen, our show begins with miss betty anderson. -[margaret] (clapping) yay! - [jim] bravo! - she's wearing a delightful little number, very popular around spring for this year. very smart, don't you think? - [jim] pretty good, yeah. i vote for that one!
5:12 am
this is an important decision. it's going to take 45 of my hard-earned dollars, practically all i have. well, what's with you, mr. wall street? - you will notice that i am perfectlz calm. no visible signs of youthful enthusiasm. (audience laughs) in spite of the fact that i bring news of a most startling and joyous nature. - what did he say? - what's the news, tell us. - mr. burdick dropped by the gas station this afternoon on his way up to the mine. do you know what blue hill copper is selling for today? exactly two weeks after i bought it for one dollar a share? three dollars a share. - [betty] three dollars?
5:13 am
your brainless, impractical, immature brother with his silly stock has made himself, in two weeks, exactly $100. - i told you he was gonna be rich! - wow, that's wonderful, bud. - you're pretty excited aren't you, son? - well, haven't i a right to be? all you thought buying this stock was a real hair-brained idea. well, are you willing to admit now that i know what i'm doing? that i'm a grown up, adult human being? -[jim] i think you've made your point, bud. now, as one adult human being to another, may i make a suggestion? sell the stock. - sell it? - you know the old saying, "a bird in the hand." - take your hundred dollars and put it in the bank. - but, blue hill copper is just getting started. it might go to a hundred.
5:14 am
remember you never go broke making a profit,so why gamble? - i'm not gambling, the stock is doing just what mr. burdick said it would and it's gonna go higher. - bud, will you take my advice? - but, dad... as a favor to me, go down to the company office right now and cash in your stock. then on your way home stop at the bank, and deposit the money in your savings account. - what if next week it goes to 20? - then you can say, " i told you so." but, in the meantime you'll still have your hundred dollars in the bank. will you do it? for me? - okay. but, i think it's a big mistake.
5:15 am
5:16 am
5:17 am
- [man] looking for somebody? - [bud] yeah, is this the office of the blue hill copper company? - used to be, they moved out last night owing three months rent. didn't pay the phone bill, didn't pay the light bill. didn't even pay for this furniture. want some stock, kid? here, have a few thousand shares. (laughs) - this is dress number three. now i want you to be absolutely impartial in your selection, but i think this one is terrific! all those in favor of this one? - [margaret] aye. - [jim] aye. - opposed? - all right, it's moved and carried
5:18 am
- maybe you should have a little mink on it, now that you have a wealthy brother. - no, i'm gonna go right on being the same sweet, simple girl i was when he was poor. - well, there's that high financing bud anderson. - let's see the money, bud. - [jim] wait a minute, bud. - has something gone wrong? - yeah, i guess you could say that. - well, don't stand there looking like the picture of doom. what is it? - is it something you'd rather not tell us? - i'm not afraid to tell ya. that stock i bought, i guessed wrong. i'm wiped out, so tough luck. - i'm sorry, son.
5:19 am
i goofed and i'll take the consequences. i don't need anybody to hold my hand. and about the money, dad, you'll get it right on the day, don't worry. - i'm not worrying, bud. - well, don't. say, eddie, remember that stuff you were gonna buy from me, the radio,and the tennis racket, and all? well, i'll make you a deal. - are you kidding, i'm having no more deals with you, buddy buddy, not after that phony stock. you know i could have lost my shirt if i had bought that stuff. - yeah, but you didn't. - well, it wasn't your fault that i didn't. - listen eddie, i gotta raise some money to pay back my dad. the loan is due today, and well, i have to pay it. i mean i'm desperate. - what's desperate about owing money to your dad? supposing you don't pay it, what's he gonna do? - that's not the point.
5:20 am
in two weeks and that's today. i've gotta put $50 in his hand by six o'clock tonight. - why do you get the dough outta me? you're working after school in shepherd's gas station, aren't ya? - forget it, forget i ever mentioned it! - worried about paying back his old man. that boy is twisted. - please take'em, dad, this was a business deal. - i don't want the keys to your car, bud. if you can't pay the loan today, i'll give you more time. - i don't want that, i'll get you the money by tonight. - he can get the money from bill shepherd, he has a job at the station. - well, that's the rub right there. i happen to know that bill closed the station down for remodeling.
5:21 am
(gentle music) (knocking) - yeah? - [betty] may i come in? - yeah. all right, say "i told you so!" gimme the whole speech. how you tried to tell me i was making a big mistake buying the stock and i wouldn't listen. and, i know everything and nobody can tell me anything. go ahead, enjoy yourself. - that's not what i came up for. - well, i don't want anybody feeling sorry for me, either. - look, i didn't come up here to gloat,
5:22 am
did it ever occur to you that i might want to help simply because you're my brother, and because i'm sure that if i were in trouble, you'd do the same for me. (gentle music) - i appreciate it, but i can't take any help, not from you or anybody. - look, i know the spot you're in. about losing your job and all. it wasn't your fault. - it doesn't matter, i gotta get out of this on my own. - but, why torture yourself? look, i have a little bit of money, about $45. you can have it as a loan and pay it back whenever you want. mother and father don't even have to know about it.
5:23 am
i made such a big thing outta being old enough to know what i was doing. now that i'm in a jam, i gotta get myself out of it without running to anybody for help. that's what i gotta do. - [margaret] betty, the driver's here from the fashion center to pick up those two dresses. - yeah, i'll be right down. bud, how are you gonna do it? where are you going to get the money before six o'clock tonight? - i don't know, but i'll get it if i have to sell my shirt.

(hawaiian drumming)
5:40 am

5:46 am
and the other one is-- - [margaret] that's strange, well maybe betty put it some place for safekeeping. all i can do now is to wait until she comes home from school and ask her. i'm sorry. - oh, that's all right. i wouldn't even bother if it wasn't for the kids. - [margaret] i hate to have you make another trip, but could you come back late this afternoon. of course, it would be too late to mail it in, but you could take it straight to the chamber of commerce. - oh sure, i'll come back and thanks an awful lot mrs. anderson. - [margaret] hello dear. - [jim] hello darling. - [jim] hello princess. - [margaret] betty, did you put the henslee's family picture anywhere? - [betty] henslee' family picture, no i didn't put it anywhere. last i remember it was on the coffee table. - oh dear, i was so sure that you had. i told mr. henslee to come back later this afternoon and pick it up. now i don't even know what to say. - [jim] well we'll just have to find it, that's all. bud you sure you didn't put it someplace? - [bud] no dad, i didn't touch it. - what about kathy? - she couldn't have done anything with it. she hasn't come home from school yet.

to borrow some more hawaiian clothes. - [jim] well the darn thing couldn't just walk away by itself. wait a minute betty. can't you develop another print? - oh i could, but i don't have the negative. - why? - well i clipped that to the picture. i figured they'd want the negatives too. - say, maybe this is faith. - [betty] huh? - maybe this is the way it was meant to be. - [jim] meant to be? - oh you know, we were nice guys, helped our competitors, and now their picture has disappeared through no fault of our own so we get our reward and win, huh? - [jim] oh cut it out, just get up and help us hunt. henslee will be showing any minute. - bud, are you sure you didn't do anything with that picture? - [bud] no mom, honest, cross my heart. - well if someone's playing a joke, it's a very bad joke, it's gone far enough. - [betty] now mother, we're not that diabolical. actually it's father's fault getting to this in the first place. - now don't start that again. - maybe we better try to track kathy down just in case she might know something
5:48 am
(doorbell ringing) - oh-oh, that's probably mr. henslee. - [margaret] oh dear, i feel so bad. - [jim] well you tell him we'll find that thing if we have to turn the whole place upside down. - [mr. henslee] well, here i am again. - [margaret] mr. henslee, i'm ashamed to tell you we haven't found your picture. - oh, you haven't. - no, but we're still hunting. oh please come in. we have one more source to check, kathy. - oh. - that is if we can find her, come along. - now look, if this is too much bother. - [margaret] oh, not at all. this is our fault. now from here is getting it so that you can get it down to the chamber of commerce before they close. - [mr. henslee] yeah.
5:49 am
- hey, you kathy, i toby, you shake hands, okay. - sure. - hey toby got something for you kathy.

5:53 am
to say to you mr. henslee. that thing just disappeared into thin air and we can't find kathy, but she probably doesn't know anything anyway. - if there was only time to take another picture. - well don't worry about it. you've done more than you should anyway and actually as i said even if we would have won we couldn't have left the bakery. foolish of us even to consider it. - [bud] you know i ought to be happy the henslee's are out of the running, i don't think i am. i'm not sure i could enjoy a trip now even if we did get it. - [betty] me either. - well, nothing we can do about it now i guess.
5:54 am
- hey, we've been searching all over for you. do you know where that picture is? - [kathy] shh, not so loud. betty, i've done an awful thing. i never felt so miserable in my whole life. - [betty] what did you do? - i hid it. - kathy anderson, is the print in there too? - i tore that up. - oh no. - don't ball me out. it's just that i didn't want anybody to keep us from going on that wonderful trip. and well i saw toby out in the backyard and he tried to give me some cake
5:55 am
- don't cry kathy. listen, listen, bud and i are just as much to blame as you are of joking around the way we did. hey look i could still make a print from this negative. you run out and catch mr. henslee before he leaves, okay. and tell him that we found the negative and i'll make him another print in five minutes. - betty, thank you. - oh run, hurry. - is it gonna work?
5:56 am
of course, you realize this practically rules out your chances to get to hawaii. - i don't care, all i want is to feel good again that's all. betty, i'd just die if anybody ever found out what an awful thing i did especially toby. - well, maybe they won't have to know. oh look kathy. - [jim] well they finally made it. and look at old toby,
5:57 am
- [kathy] let's see. - [margaret] oh, they certainly look as if they're having a wonderful time. - did they say anything on the card? - [jim] oh wouldn't you know it. "having a wonderful time wish you were here." - [kathy] i wish we were too. - oh, so do i. - gee, if this was only us. - oh don't look so sad kathy. we'll get there some day. - but when? - well, we'll start saving toward it right now. - we'd never be able to get away. you always have to work. - well look the henslee's thought that same thing, and they made it. - sure, they found a good pastry cook to take over for mrs. henslee. (whistle blowing) - and a new delivery man. - get your red hot prune filled bear claws here. man this job is killing me. - oh bud, it isn't that hard. - all you have to do is drive around in a comfortable truck and carry that little tray. - [bud] no it isn't that.
5:58 am
and i'm getting sick. - bud, you're not supposed to eat any of that. - of course not, we want them to show a profit. - that's right, we may want to borrow some money from them for our trip. - [bud] what trip? - didn't you hear? we plan to go to this little island ourselves some day. come on kath. - oh come on i just washed the floor.

6:02 am
honestly? well... how nice for me. yes. i'm holding it in my hand right now. it has your name and address and phone number. i'm looking forward to the party, aren't you? yes. i'll see you tomorrow. good-bye, zelda. zelda. oh. still trying to get the right time? mm-hmm. oh, boy. we sure live a split-second life in this house, don't we? huh? i was just in your room, harold, and i noticed that something was missing. oh, no. no. there's nothing missing. what about that football i gave you? it ain't on your dresser where you usually keep it. it isn't? and i looked every place. i better go look. no, i already looked.
6:03 am
that's a professional football, just like the bulldogs use. and with those signatures i got from the bulldogs on it, it ought to be worth five or six dollars in the open market. and if the bulldogs ever win a game, it'll be worth even more. now, where is it? i lost it. oh, come on. you can't lose anything as big as a football, unless you booted it through somebody's window. is that what you did? no. i... i...lost it over in the park. oh, so that's why you're in here telephoning for the time instead of over there looking for it. well, i'm gonna go over there and look, and if i don't find it, believe me, it's gonna be the last christmas present you ever get from me. zelda. boy: come on!

- george. - huh? george, i was just coming back from mrs. nolls, and i saw-- well, come here. saw what? well, it's hazel. she's been over in the park, and i've never seen her acting so depressed. george, that isn't like hazel. she never drags her feet. you're right. she's walking as though she's going to the gallows. hazel, what on earth...
6:08 am
- well, you look like-- - the expression on your face. - no, i'm all right. - well, something's wrong. it's harold. he isn't hurt? i've lost him. - what about harold? - where? he's going to a party tomorrow afternoon. a party? yeah. he's going with a girl named zelda. i know. it's a class party at school. you knew? yes. he told me. he told you and he never told me. you see? i've lost him. hazel, he didn't tell me either, but i'm not going to start blubbering about it. i'm sorry, darling. i forgot to tell you. it's a class party. the teacher wrote the girls' names on a slip of paper, and the boys drew them out of a hat to see who would take whom. that's sensible. that way no girl gets slighted. oh, you don't know the half of it. harold didn't draw zelda's name. his friend did. and he traded the autographed football i gave him for christmas for zelda's name. my own christmas present.
6:09 am
don't you understand? harold's interested in girls. well, what did you expect him to get interested in? hem-snitching? soon he'll be getting married, and i'll be babying harold jr., and then i'll lose him, and then it'll be the same with harold iii and harold iv and harold v. oh, how time flies. already i have great-grandchildren. hazel, harold loves you just as much. [sniffling] oh, that's all right, missy. i'm all right now. of course you are. hazel, he hasn't changed that much. you don't grow into a man overnight. let's just say that he has started moving in that direction. yes. i just got to get the right attitude. i just should not try to hold on to him. that's right. just let nature take its course. well, within reason. his father intends to keep his eye on nature. he's getting to be a young man now,
6:10 am
maybe he'll grow into a wonderful, mature man like his father. thank you, hazel. hey, dad! dad! - yes, son? - how much money do i have in my savings account? well, offhand, i don't know. i'd have to check your passbook. why? well, i'd like to draw out enough money to buy a corsage for a girl who likes violets. [sobs] i'll get your corsage, harold. it's in the refrigerator. i'll bet you're the most considerate boy in your class. i try to be thoughtful of other people. well, you ain't very thoughtful if you think i'm gonna swallow that. but i ain't gonna kid you, sport. i know. you're growing up now. it's only natural you wanna take a girl to a party. here you are. you're all set. now i'll see if your father's ready to go. he's going along?
6:11 am
oh, no, harold. but he has to deliver some contracts to a client, and he has to pass the school anyway, so he'll drive you and your friend there. but he doesn't have to, mother. i mean, i know how busy he is. oh, he's not too busy for you, harold. what'd you wanna do, take a taxicab? no, but zelda and i could walk. walk? walk a girl to a party? barney tried that with me once. just once. and i ain't been out with him since. boy, walking a girl to a party is one way to make a smash hit with her, i don't think. dad! yes, son? oh, you're all ready to go. good. you don't have to drive us to the school. it's only a few blocks. we can walk. oh, that's all right, son. i'm glad to do it. [phone rings] i'll get it! - dad? - just a second, son. this is probably my client calling me. hello. hello, mr. morgan.
6:12 am
and ready for your signature. as a matter of fact, i was just ready to leave the house and bring them to you. fine. i'll see you in a few minutes. good-bye. harold, we'll have to hurry-- harold. harold! i'll never forget the first party i went to when i was-- darling, i'll have to leave now. oh, i wanted to tell harold-- - harold has gone. - huh? but i thought you were going to drive him, george. i was, but i just got a call from my client, and i guess harold thought it was gonna be one of those long-winded conversations. - so he went on. - but i told him-- darling, i have to get these papers to my client. - bye. - bye. - hazel. - huh? do you know where this zelda girl lives? sure. she lives right across the park. harold's got her address on that little slip of paper. well, he can't have gone too far.
6:13 am
i can't. i'm expecting a woman any minute to discuss some decoration ideas. could you drive him? oh, could i?
6:14 am
6:15 am
harold, i think they're absolutely beautiful. so do i. i mean, i knew they'd look beautiful. violets are my favorite flowers, too. - they are? - mm-hmm. that's very interesting. most boys would say roses are their favorite flower. they hear everybody else say roses are beautiful, so they say roses, too. they don't think for themselves. they sure don't. you know, harold, you're not like all the other boys. i'm not? you don't roughhouse. the others act like such children. yes, isn't it disgusting?
6:16 am
i'm hazel burke. i'm the housekeeper for the baxters. i raised harold ever since he was a pup. how do you do? i'm zelda warren. well, i'm very glad to know you. harold's father was gonna drive you to the party, but he's a big lawyer and he had to deliver some contracts. so i'm gonna be your chauffeur. you wanna sit up front? most kids do. come on, harold. come on. get in.
6:17 am
come on, sport. don't you want some ice cream? it's real good for store-bought ice cream. 'course it ain't as good as the kind i make. where's zelda? dancing. oh, well, why ain't you dancing with her? oh. oh, sport. look what you did. oh, for pete's sake. here.
6:18 am
hazel. oh, hi, miss tilcy. may i see you for a moment? oh, sure. get you some ice cream. hazel, it was really very kind of you to offer to help, but-- oh, the pleasure's all mine. yes, i'm sure you honestly mean that, but-- i'm just glad to do this, and i'll do the dishes, too. i don't mind the work. i think it's fun. i'm just crazy about kids. well, that's the point i was trying to make. they're at an age when they no longer regard themselves as kids. oh, you're so right. get a load of that dancing. i was telling zelda i taught harold how to dance, but i ain't got the spine for these dances. what i was trying to say is that, uh, some of the mothers offered to come today to help out, but i declined. oh, good. 'cause i got a system for dishwashing, and some people, although they got the best intentions, they just get in the way.
6:19 am
well, i feel i know these students better than some parents. parents often have such a strong mental image of them as children that... well, they fail to see that they've reached an age of self-discovery, where they're beginning to discover themselves as young men and women. oh, you're so right. you know, until yesterday, i looked on harold as my baby. and here he is, taking a girl to a party. did he take her? oh, sure. they're here. well, didn't you bring harold? well, i drove them here, if that's what you mean. just now when you, uh... when you served harold ice cream and he spilled some on his suit-- oh, but i got it right off. i got him all cleaned up. did you see the expression on his face? yeah. he looked kind of peculiar. he could see that the, uh... that the other students were snickering. snickering? at him. why? i think he was humiliated.
6:20 am
you got to get it off quick. it was humiliating to have you treat him as though you were his nursemaid. harold. sport, i'm--
6:21 am
oh, missy, wait till you see what i got. a terrific hat and shoes and a purse to go with it. hazel, i didn't even hear you drive in the driveway. oh, for pete's sake. i got so interested in the hats, i forgot the car. i walked home. it's us, mom! hi, grandma. hi, honey. go finish your homework before practice, okay? yup, okay ... groceries ... prescription ... and your books are back at the library. i don't know how you do all this for me with everything you have on your plate. mom, just because you can't drive these days doesn't mean you've stopped needing things. please know how much i appreciate it. i know, mom, and it's okay. look, i know how much of a burden i've become-

6:26 am
stupid? full grown men, kicking, punching, and knocking each other down. it's stupid, isn't it? well, i, uh... i guess it is. and baseball. hitting a ball with a club and then running around in a circle. that's even more stupid, isn't it? yes, i suppose it is. i'm studying toe dancing. harold, have you ever thought of being a ballet dancer? oh, well, no. not lately. you should. you have the figure for it. why don't you join my class? right now, we're rehearsing for a performance of sleeping beauty. you'd look wonderful in tights as one of the fairies. now, i'm telling you that the papa bear is taking a firm stand on this. and when i talk to harold-- hazel! oh, hazel. hazel, hazel. sport, i'm awful sorry.
6:27 am
football? harold: right away. harold... well, we ain't got any football. you traded it, remember? then can we go play some baseball right away? well, i got to fix dinner, sport. mother, dad, is it okay if dinner's a little late? can hazel and i practice a little baseball? well, son, we wanted to talk to you about zelda. but, unfortunately, hazel-- zelda. but i thought you and she-- she wanted me to join her ballet class. she wanted me to wear tights and be a fairy in sleeping beauty. now that i've been on a date with her, she doesn't seem nearly as pretty as i thought. well, i'll get my baseball and glove. hazel and i have to get in shape for spring season. tights? sleeping beauty? well, it looks like i got him back again, but i ain't kidding myself that it's for long. no. the world is full of zeldas. if you don't mind dinner being a little late,
6:28 am
i'm gonna hold on to him as long as i can. you go right ahead, hazel. well, i don't know where this leaves me. that's okay, mr. b. papa bear just came out of his cave too soon. you better go back in and hibernate a little bit longer. your time's coming. [chuckling]
6:29 am
[instruments tuning] i think a symphony orchestra spends more time tuning up than it does playing. i appreciate your coming by, george. you, uh, sounded worried. i am. tell me. um, what's worrying you? mm. bianca bellina, one of the world's great prima donnas. correction. the world's greatest prima donna, by her own admission. she's appearing with the symphony? her next concert. she's singing soprano part in mahler's 4th. i thought she was strictly an opera singer. most of the opera companies in the world are suing her, so she's available. so, uh, you're expecting trouble?
6:30 am
since you're the symphony association's attorney, i felt i should alert you. - you want me to stand by. - well, more than that, george. i want you to meet bellina when she arrives. i thought if you could make our position clear from the outset, maybe we might avoid the usual trouble. well, uh, won't she resent that? well, you have to be tactful, george. firm, but friendly. and i should warn you that according to reports, there is no in-between with bellina. at first sight, she either hates you or she falls in love with you. [chuckling] great. either i have trouble with a prima donna or with my wife. hazel, would you add toothpaste and bobby pins to your shopping list, please? oh, this ain't my shopping list. this is a list of my candidates. playing politics? well, you know i ain't picked an escort to the bowling league ball yet.
6:31 am
yeah. they're all nice, but, you know, they ain't nothing special. [chuckling] well, i know you, hazel. and after you've made your mind up, you'll have a lovely time whomever it is. [chuckling] oh. two out of three. [knocking] buon sera, hazel. come sta? enzo martelli. i just can't believe it. hazel. hazel.

6:32 am
there is no time. at the very last moment, my brother giorgio, he decides to come with me, and there is much to be done. and then i remember. you like surprises. tell me, hazel. is it a good surprise for you that i am back? oh, bono. molto bono. so your brother came with you, huh? yes, and you will like giorgio. at the present time, he speaks no english. well, if he's like you, he'll learn soon enough. well, sit down and tell me all about your trip. i would like to hear very much what you have been doing, but today... [speaking italian]... i cannot stay. i only wanted to see you and let you know i am here. well, i'm glad it wasn't a day later because our bowling league is giving a ball a week from today. and it's in honor of the city champions. that's my team. [speaking italian] well, maybe you'll escort me to the dance, huh? an honor and a pleasure. oh. swell.
6:33 am
you're perhaps free tuesday night? well, sure, if you don't make it too early. say about 7:30? bene. and now i must go. oh, enzo, how do you say, "glad to have you back" in italian? [speaking italian] [speaking italian], enzo. grazie. arrivederci. till tuesday night.

6:37 am
signorina, you remember mr. baxter. si, i remember. you are a lawyer, no? all of my worst enemies are lawyers. but also some of your best friends. ah, well... but you're not. you side with those who persecute me. no one is persecuting you, signorina. everyone is persecuting me. - but-- - everyone. i am alone. a poor, lonely, abandoned woman without a friend in the whole world. - well, surely-- - no. signorina, you have lots of friends in this town. thousands devoted fans who stood in line to buy tickets to hear you sing. - we are sold out? - completely. [gasps] [speaking italian] those poor, unhappy people who long for the music that only bellina can make. i weep for them. i weep for myself.
6:38 am

6:50 am
thanks. and if he'll do it, tell him to stop by mr. sutherland's office in symphony hall. all right, i will. mr. b says the prima donna has lost her voice and he wants you to come down to symphony hall and help her find it. but why me? well, it seems she only feels like singing when you're around. i don't know, hazel. well, it really would help, mr. b. but if you don't wanna do it... when you ask, how can i refuse? you're gonna spoil me, enzo. he said to come right down and to ask for mr. sutherland. si. oh, as your escort for the dance friday night, what should i wear? you best suit and your dancing shoes. arrivederci. arrivederci. i will only be a moment, enzo, then when we go. bene.
