you'll have to be just as brave

as brave can be,

so you can make him brave too. See?

- Spunky and I are such awfully good friends.

- I know, dear.

All right, Mary. I'll try and be brave

about Spunky and my duck.

Good for you. Look,

how'd you like to help me get lunch?

I'd love that. I like to make things to eat

and I especially like to eat them.

(? piano plays "Animal Crackers In My Soup'')

Oh, my goodness!

Singing in the dining room! Is this

the kind of manners you teach them?

Of course not, Mr Wyckoff. They've been told

they must be quiet at mealtimes.

Oh, they've been told, have they? Well, just

telling them doesn't seem to be good enough.

Perhaps a bit of real discipline

wouldn't do them any harm.

- Have you been told not to sing?

- Yes, sir.

Then why do you do it?

You're a bad and wicked child.

She isn't a bad and wicked child.

She's just a baby.

She was making the children laugh.

It wasn't her fault.

I told her to sing for the children.

And who are you, young woman?

- Are you an orphan too?

- Yes, sir.

Then what right have you to be here,

living on charity at your age?

I'll tell you what I'm doing here.

I scrub the floors, make the beds, wash,

iron and cook from morning until night.

- Quiet!

- I won't be quiet.

- You're mean and hateful to frighten children.

- Report to me after the meeting.

Yes, ma'am.

The rest of you, go to the yard and wait there

till it's time for inspection by our trustees.

(girls) Yes, Mrs Higgins.

- Aren't you going to join us, Mr Morgan?

- What?

- Yes, of course, the meeting of the trustees.

- Of course.

Would you mind beginning without me?

I'd like to look about the place.

- But we have important matters...

- I'll join you in a few minutes.

- Well, of course...

- Thank you.
