That makes four thirds.


A glass only

holds three thirds.

It depends on the

size of the thirds!

Well, the... that's

not arithmetic!

And a drop on the bottleneck,

is that arithmetic, too?

Now look!

You should pour it like this.

And push the last

drop back with a cork.




Cesar, hurry!

It's time for the hunt.

I'm really for this!

Quickly, quickly!

Come on, hurry!

They always hide

it under the hat.

Ha, ha.

Look at them!

Grown men!

Hey, there is one.


We didn't hurt you, sir?


Good morning.

A lovely day.

Uh-oh, look.


Good morning.

Oh, no!

Nice to see everyone

out this morning.





Why weren't you at

the dance last night?

Well, I can live

without dancing.

I danced practically

every dance with Victor.

A very good dancer.

Very polite and clever, too.


Is he that little boy

with the large pimples?

Oh, the pimples are all gone.

I'm glad to hear it.

They've given way to boils.

Not too bad a fight.

Ha, ha.

Should I tell Victor that I

can't go with him next Sunday


Why should you tell him that?

I thought you might

want to take me.


Don't disappoint Victor.

I might ruin what's

left of his complexion.

You're dense.

Or hopeless!

Or both!

Still playing the same

imbecilic game, I see.

Why, it's Monsieur Brun.

Yes, aha!

Welcome back from

Paris, Monsieur Brun.

Thank you.

It's easy to see

you're an Englishman,

You didn't kick the hat.

Now we can have our

card games again!

Aha, ha, ha!

Sit down.

Sit down.

We'll drink to your homecoming.

Oh, thank you.

Marius, another glass!

Fanny, it's lunch time.

A plate of delicious

muscles, hm?

Ha, ha, ha.

Not for me.

Where did he go

in such a hurry?

To get dressed.

Today is Monday.
