Baby's Day Out

Synopsis: Baby Bink couldn't ask for more; he has adoring (if somewhat sickly-sweet) parents, he lives in a huge mansion, and he's just about to appear in the social pages of the paper. Unfortunately, not everyone in the world is as nice as Baby Bink's parents; especially the three enterprising kidnappers who pretend to be photographers from the newspaper. Successfully kidnapping Baby Bink, they have a harder time keeping hold of the rascal, who not only keeps one step ahead of them, but seems to be more than a little bit smarter than the three bumbling criminals.

Whatever you wish, however you wish.

You photographed

the children of many of my friends.

Those pictures are forever appearing

in newspapers and magazines.

It is true.

- His picture's never been published.

- That cannot be.

It's true.

I am sure in the not-so-distant future

this little fellow will be very well known.

I want your very best. I want art.

I want you to set a new standard

for beauty in baby photography.

I so welcome the challenge, madame.

And, to that end, may I ask one small favor?

May I have some time alone with the child?

Oh, I need his complete attention.

The great bond between you and your son,

his love for you, will distract him.

I need to study his marvelous little features,

to learn how best to photograph him.

He does well with persons

he is not intimate with?

Does he?

He's a friendly boy, but he may not like...


Madame, if I might make a suggestion.

Your garment du jour, while

extremely magnificent, is so colorful,

I am afraid it will dominate the photograph

and detract from your natural beauty.

I knew this outfit was wrong.

I'll be back in 15 minutes.

Take all the time you need.

If he gets cranky,

read him his book.

How invaluable.

Thank you.

Mr Andrews, get the winter wardrobe.

- But, madam...

- Hurry, Gilbertine.

There you go.

Take the book.

Bink really deserves this moment

in the spotlight.

It's too bad the baby pictures

don't go on the front page.

- Ma'am?

- Yeah?

We gotta make this fast.

I'm sorry it took so long.

Where's Bink?


You're a smart guy. How do you tell

the front from the back on these diapers?

Are there pockets in the front?

- Very funny. The front and back are the same.

- Then it probably don't make no difference.

Put him in them regular baby clothes. That
