on account of comic books.

You know I've decided to do, pal?

- Be pals with me?

- Yeah, we'll be pallies.

I'm gonna write you a letter

at least once every month.

- And I'll answer you.

- Good. Now go get supper.

Write to me?

Look, junior,

a divorce is the only way out.

We've been together too long.

Ever since we were Tenderfeet

in the Kangaroo Patrol.

You can have the whole apartment,

full custody of the beans

and the Bat Lady.


Not so hard.

Thank you.

I hope the bubbles

didn't tickle your nosey.

No, just my nose-tril.

- Your nose-tril?

- Yes, just a little tickle.

Hey, you think you have enough there

if I want a little slug?

Oh, sure, Rick.

I have everything when I'm pretending.

You see, I'm just making believe

that we're both very rich,

wealthy millionaires with money.

And you're a very, very famous artist,

and I'm a very famous writer, see?

And I'm just making believe

that we're not even eating beans,

just a big, juicy steak.

Would you like a piece

of my big, juicy steak?

Oh, no. No, no. I'm up to here.

I think I had too much vichyssoise.

That's the idea, Rick.

You have to pretend.

See? 'Cause when you pretend,

then your dreams come true.

It's just like wishing. Watch.



Do that once more.

You see, you're not concentrating, Rick.

You must pretend

and concentrate. Watch.

Although you're stuck beans

There's money in your jeans

When you pretend

The wolf that's at your door

Is not there anymore

When you pretend

There's nothing you can't be

Just wish and see

The world's your cup of tea

Some dish, says me

The happiness you find

Is all a state of mind

That's true, my friend

And life is filled with happy endings

When you pretend

You sold me, junior.

Tomorrow I'm gonna pretend

I don't have to tour

Herbert Baker

Sir Herbert Baker (9 June 1862 – 4 February 1946) was an English architect remembered as the dominant force in South African architecture for two decades, and a major designer of some of New Delhi's most notable government structures. He was born and died at Owletts in Cobham, Kent. Among the many churches, schools and houses he designed in South Africa are the Union Buildings in Pretoria, St. Andrew's College, Grahamstown, St. John's College, Johannesburg, the Wynberg Boys' High School, Groote Schuur in Cape Town, and the Champagne Homestead and Rhodes Cottage on Boschendal, between Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. With Edwin Lutyens he was instrumental in designing, among other buildings, the Rashtrapati Bhavan, Parliament and North and South Blocks of the Secretariat, all in New Delhi, which in 1931 became the capital of the British Raj and later of the Republic of India. He also designed the administration building at the then Prince of Wales School in Nairobi, Kenya now known as Nairobi School. His tomb is in Westminster Abbey. more…
