I'm not understand.

Everything happened very fast. Your father called me

the office and asked me to come get it.

He said:
"I'm having some small problems, but

nothing serious. "So do not worry.

Just eat your hamburger and drink your drink,

and then we took you back soon.

Go there.


- You have to make a phone call, Alex?

- Yes, indeed.

If anyone sees a cabin

telephone, I will call there.

Yes, she is with us

and all is well.

Ok, no problem.

We heard you, Mr. Whitehead.

Ok Thanks. Goodbye.

It was your father and he said it's all

in order. He'll call us later.

- When can I go home?

- Soon. Now drink your drink, darling.

It's hot.

If you drink this whole

then after I give you a cold.

Come on, drink it.

Where are we?

Okay, guys! It's time to take a bath!

Ok, now you undress and jump into it.

Come on, Leslie. It's just

a bath, you will not bite.

I'm also shy.

Hey, you gotta rub well

if you want to stay clean. Ok?

Nobody likes boys with dirty hair.

Leslie has already told you

a dog called Elvis?

Yellow is a farmer.

Right, honey?

Where is Trixie?

- What, Who...?

- Your dog Trixie.

The Trixie, well... Frank tried to throughout

city, but still could not find it...

so I think she must be lost.

Poor Trixie.

Walking around lost.

Excuse me.


Mr. Whitehead!

It is Alex.

Yes, she's fine.

... And for how long?

Are you sure?

Okay, wait a second, we like to have

us. We waited until you return. Ok!

They still are not back.

Hey, how is your hair?

Do not want to wash?

I do not believe you.

I do not believe you.

- What did I do wrong?

- Nothing.

I want to connect them. I want to talk to them.

They would not abandon me.

Will you, I know

phone number of your father.

You can!

It's okay, honey. We're here.
