My name is Tom Goldman.

Welcome to our movie.

As you've seen in the lobby,

we have provided medical service

which is free of charge when

presenting your ticket stub.

Oxygen masks are available.

So if during the movie the guy behind

asks for your ticket,

don't give it to him.

But anyway, please don't hesitate to go

into the lobby if you feel the need.

I'm here to advise you also that our

company does not assume

any legal responsibility for anything

that may happen to you

during this screening.

Good night, folks. Enjoy the movie!

Don't forget - during the projection,

don't speak to anyone you don't know!

What's the matter?





Tommy, Tommy, Tommy!





What are you doing here?

Come to Mother.

John! One of the snails has gotten out!

Could you put it back with the others?

Okay! I'm coming, Mother.

Goddamn! One of my birds got out!

Catch him! What were you doing with

him out of the cage?

- No one likes to be caged in.

- You can't trust them for a minute!

Feed him!

Come on, come on!

Get back here!

Come here!

Be careful with the table!

Catch him! Don't let him go

into the kitchen!

Hurry! Catch him!

Hurry! Catch him!

Catch him!

Be careful with the lamp!

Now where's he going?

John! Hurry!

You're in a lot of trouble.

What are you doing? Get down from

there! You're going to fall!

The bird is stuck behind the cupboard.

I can't reach him.

You've got to force him out. You can

do it. Get down!


He's moving.

You stay here. I'll be right back.


Use this.

Be careful. Don't hurt him.

Don't force it.

Be careful!

Don't hurt him.


- I've got him, Ma! I've got him, Mother!

- Be careful! Don't hurt him.



He won't get away again. He knows

he can't hide from me.

Now, give him to me, John.

Give him to me.

Give him to me, John.

You did a good job, John.

John is a good boy.

You mustn't run off like that, Tommy.

You're very, very bad!

See what happens when

you disobey Mother.

And if Uncle John is late at the

hospital, it'll be all your fault.

What are you doing over there?

Bring me the key.

Sorry, doctor.

I can't get used to these lenses.

They hurt.

Don't worry. It's quite normal for them

to feel uncomfortable at first.

These drops will help.

Please get them out of my eyes.

I can't stand it! They're cutting into

my eyes! Take them out!

Are you deaf? I told you to take these

things out of my eye! They're hurting me!

- Take them out!

- Please, please.

Don't get upset. I promise they'll stop

hurting in a few minutes.

Take them out! Do you hear me?

You wear them! You need them

more than I do!

No. I'm not allowed. My mother would...

Excuse me.

Where are you going? Come back here!

Where is Dr. Murphy?

Get these things out of my eyes! They're

hurting. Get them out!

- Calm down please.

- How do you expect me to calm down?

- The man is a complete nut.

- I'm sorry this happened.
