- I'm fine.

Mommy, this is Creeps Binder.


- Creeps?

- Creeps. You remember.

Nick sent me up the river.

It's nice you don't feel bad about it.

Why should I?

It took a genius to outsmart me.

- You wanna touch me?

- You shouldn't run him down like that.

No, Mrs. Charles.

Nickie's doing something.

Well, I guess I won't need this anymore.

- Do you mind?

- No. Make yourself at home.

What's the matter?

What have you got?

Asta's bone.

You shouldn't leave it around.

You're older, you ought to know better.

- A baby.

- Yeah.

- Is it yours?

- Yes.

- What do you know. Is it a boy?

- Certainly.

- What is it there?

- Say hello to Mr. Binder.

- Can he talk?

- A few words.

I ought to rate one of them.

How about it? Come on, see.

What's the matter?

I was just trying to think

who he looks like.

- Anyone I know?

- I got it. It's the missus.

Why didn't you tell me you had a kid?

Well, you know.

You don't have to feel that way about him.

He's all right.

You should see some of the monkeys

I've seen.

And the fathers are taking bows.

Feel better now, Mommy?

- How old is he?

- He'll be a year next Monday.

Monday? We'll throw him a party.

I'll get the mob to bring their kids.

What do you say?

We have to go to the country.

Yes. We don't quite know how long.

It's a date then. I'll get my brother

to let me bring his kids over.

He's got two of the cutest little tricks.

- That's very kind.

- Leave it to Creepsie, Mrs. Charles.

I'll throw you a baby party

you've never seen the like of.

Your father has such lovely friends.

That's all right. Think nothing of it.

Glad to do it.

- How much further is it?

- The house is a little way up the hill.

It's about a mile around to the gates.

Stop the car.

- We'd better not, Mr. Charles.
