Am I totally unknown to you?

Weve just arrived in England.

From Siberia, I presume.

That might possibly explain

your bizarre ignorance.

Mr. Wilson, I hope you'll forgive me...

but I really must get my marketing done.

I have other African heads,

small pickled ones, in my apartment.

Do drop in anytime you'd care to meet

some unsuccessful politicians.

Thank you. That would be lovely.

Now I really must go.

A Bientot, duchess.

Wave, Samantha.

Go on, wave to the nice young lady.

Theyre late.

It's absolute chaos with Miss Benton away.

I don't know.

Elvira seems to be coping manfully.

I'm not altogether sure.

Jamie lost his socks again yesterday.

Socks just don't disappear into thin air.

It's obvious she put them on

some other child who came without socks.

Not tremendously encouraging.

- Excuse me. Have you got a minute?

- A lifetime. Can I help you?

It's about my little girl.

She just entered today...

and I'd like to meet her teacher.

When theres time, of course.

Her teacher will be with the class

when it comes down.

Good afternoon.

I beg your pardon.

Could you tell me where the fours are?

The fours are packing up.

These are the babies.

What a big boy Jamie is.

And what a heartbreaker.

When we saw him this morning...

in the First Day room,

my Bunny just about fell in love with him.

She'd have fallen out soon enough.

he's got a foul temper. Bye-bye, now.

Hello, darling.

Had a nice morning?

- Excuse me, what class is your little girl in?

- The fours.

So is mine, but I can't seem to find her.

Miss Daphnes in charge of the fours.

She could tell you.

I don't see her, though.

Sort of tall, and dark, and 30-ish.

That's the classroom up there.

But I don't see Miss Daphne.

- Thank you very much.
