I'll have to get off now.

Have a nice trip, young chap.

- Bye.

- Bye.

Oh dear!

You've left something.

Thank you, thank you.

All aboard!

Now you can sleep

through till Berlin.

No, I won't sleep.

All aboard!

I'm sorry.

No harm done.

Do you smoke, young man?

No, not yet.

How about some candy?



Oh my God!

The money!


Anyone else without a ticket?


Emil should arrive

any moment, grandma.

Here you are, uncle.

Where's that rascal Emil?

Excuse me, wasn't that

the train from Neustadt?

Yes, it was.

We're waiting for my cousin.

- Im pleased, I'm pleased.

- Why does that please you?

What a strange person.

I think it's time

to go home now.

Who knows what Emil's

been up to.

Like I always say:

boys nowadays...

I don't like this.

Well, I'm terribly tired.

Sit on the handlebar, grandma.

I'll get you home.

You silly girl!

Who's that honking all the time?

Me, of course.

Never heard of Gustav

and his horn?

You're not from around here, right?

I'm from Neustadt. I'm coming

straight from the station.

From Neustadt?

That explains the silly suit.

Take that back or I'll smack you

so hard your horn will burst.

Don't be offended.

It's already taken back.

Come here.

What are you doing?

I'm sure I can fix you up.

Like this.

Lower your head.

We'll have to unbutton that.

- Now you're looking proper.

- Thanks.

What are you always looking at?

I'm observing a thief.

Huh, what?

All I hear is "thief".

Come over here.

Do you see that man over there?

The one with the stiff hat.

The one that's eating the eggs?

- Yes, eggs he paid for with my money.

- Why with your money?

Look, this is what happened:

I was on my way to my grandma in Berlin,

having 140 marks in my pocket,

and that guy was sitting
