Well, I wondered what

you'd do if he weren't.

I will wait.

But you don't even

know when he'll be here!

Why don't you come and

have dinner with us

while you're waiting?

We only live

over there.

I may miss him.

I thank you

but I may miss him.

You can keep trying

his number from our house.

You'd be more comfortable

than standing out here.

You might

starve to death.

That's too much

trouble for you.

Oh, no!

We always have

plenty of food.

And it would make my mother

and father very happy

to meet someone who's

just come from Greece.

I think it must be terrible

to be in a strange city...

Guess my mother

must be in the kitchen.


We have company.


How do you do?

This is

Yianni Martakis.

He's just come

from Greece.

He's here to visit Mr. Coupas

who lives down the street.

Oh, you

just arrived?

Yes, I did.

Did you know Mr. Coupas

lives so near us?

Mr. Coupas?

You know him,


He's on the

church council and his office

is just across the street from

Uncle George's store.

Oh, yes,

Mr. Coupas.

Well, when Yianni

went to his apartment

he found he wasn't there

so I invited him

to have dinner

with us while he waits.

Good. Very nice.

Sit down,


I'll go make

some coffee.

Thank you.

Here are the things

from the store.

Uncle George says the lamb

is ready for the oven.

Will three pounds of

chopped meat be enough?

What do you mean,


You know

what I mean.

Who is this man?

I told you.

Yianni Martakis.

It isn't right for a young girl

to pick up strange men

and bring them

into her father's house.

Should I have taken him to

somebody else's house?

Stop laughing at me.

It isn't right

to do such things.

Mama, he's a relative

of a neighbor.

A neighbor we

don't even know.

And he's a sailor just
