Yes, you can do without them, Mary.

I told you yesterday.

Believe me, I can't do anything for you.

I believe you, sir...

but I can't walk without them, sir.

Yes, you can. Give them to me.

Don't be afraid.

Now walk, Mary. Come on. Come to me.

Yes, sir.

Walk, Mary. Come on.

All right, sir. I can walk, sir.

-Of course you can.

-I can walk, sir!

There, there, Mrs. Lucas.

-lt hurts, doesn't it?

-Yes, sir.

Sometimes a doctor must hurt you a little

to make you well.

Yes, sir.

And if a doctor thinks

a slight operation is necessary...

there's no need to be afraid, is there?

-No, sir.

-I want you to know it's going to cure you.

I believe you, sir.

Jekyll, we haven't much time, you know.

I'm sorry.

I'm afraid I must miss the dinner.

I'll come afterwards for the dancing.

-What's keeping you?

-I must operate on this patient at once.

Why not leave it

to one of the house surgeons?

They're quite competent.

Perhaps, but I prefer to do it myself.

Will you make my excuses

to General Carew and Muriel, please?

As you like.

Lanyon, you make my excuses

to the General...

and I'll make mine to Muriel myself.

All right.

Yes, Miss Muriel.

Will it be almond cakes

with coffee, Hobson?

-I'm sorry, miss. I don't think so.

-But we must have almond cakes.

-Send for them immediately.

-Very good, miss.

-What's this about almond cakes?

-Dr. Jekyll likes them, Father.

You know you'll spoil that fianc of yours.

-I like spoiling him.

-So I observe.

And what about your father?

You're already the most spoiled darling

in the world.

Dr. Lanyon.

Lanyon. Delighted to see you.

Punctual for dinner,

punctual in everything.

How do you do, sir?

-What an astonishing motto.

-How do you do?

-Where's Jekyll?

-He stayed to perform an operation.

-lsn't he coming?
