( bell rings )

( indistinct chatter )

Something the matter, Pauline?

l'm done.

Are you quite sure?


Some of these equations here,

they don't seem to be completed.

That's probably because my ability

to soIve these equations

has absolutely no bearing

on my future as a surgeon.

Ah, a surgeon, of course.

You know, mathematics and surgery,

they go hand in hand.

l mean, if a patient's life

is at stake,

there's no room for error.

Get it done.

lt's such a lovely lapel pin.

You must tell me

where you came across it.


don't be confusing.

You know l can't

understand a thing

when you start waving

your hands around like that.



What a wonderful surprise.

What the f*ck

are you doing here?

Don't make me wash

your mouth out with soap.

Why do you have this?

We were just talking

about Cotillion.

You're trying to ruin my life.

( bell rings )


Mother, l'd like to talk to you about

why you were at school today.

What about it?

You do realize l'm too old

for CotiIIion cIass?

Mrs. Guthrie has decided

to open her doors

to a wider age range this year.

She's a dear friend

in dire need of assistance.

So I've decided to take

on a position as chaperone.

You can't be serious.

No daughter of mine

is going off to college

without knowing the ins and outs

of what it's like to be a proper lady.

l can't wait for Cotillion.

And what do you have to say

about all this?

l think what your mother

is trying to do is--

Your mother?

Excuse me.

This was our decision.

l knew Dad had nothing

to do with it.

You don't even have enough backbone

to stand up for your own wife?

You're repulsive.

Make sure Grace takes her pills.

Un-fucking believable.
