- Shhh!

Children... Andrew... Sit down.

Everything's ready.

Gene... Mark...

Sis...

In order to save you from a severe case of indigestion

caused by prolonged curiosity...

..your sister Dinah has been expelled.

- CHILDREN ALL TALK AT ONCE

- Grace.

HALTING TROMBONE PLAYING

TROMBONE:
"My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean"

Gene, can't you play anything else?

Oh...ishkabibble.

SUDDEN BURST OF TROMBONE

Come on, Miss Dinah.

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

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

- The washing won't be.

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

Why, that's wage slavery.

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

Been emancipated.

Dinah!

- Haven't I asked you?

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

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

- Only if they're unconscious!

When I unpacked for you, I found...

Where did these things come from?

- Boxing gloves, Momma.

- Yes, I know.

A man on the train helped me with my case.

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

He gave me the gloves as a souvenir.

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

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

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

Yes!

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

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

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

He's the world's champion.

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

He belongs to his public.

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

Great artists never lose touch with the little people.

It would comfort me if you didn't lose touch

with the dustpan and broom.

Start with the back porch, dear.
