- Uh, you're with the library?

- Yes, that's right.

- And, uh, where have you sung before?

- Um...

Um, well, I haven't

ever really sung professionally.

- Um, I've studied a lot.

- Oh, well, good luck.

Thank you.

Harrison Winslow. He's our last one.

What did you sing for us last year?


I didn't actually sing. I was, uh...

I was taken ill.

Let's get on with it.


I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Excuse me, I'm sorry.

I'm sorry. I can't.

Excuse me.

I'm not gonna be your friend anymore.

Well, that's fine. Night-night. Sleep tight.

Your mama has got to go to work tonight.

Why do you always

have to work in the nighttime?

Because I'm on the night switchboard.

I'm sorry, sweetie.

I'm trying to get back on days.

But now, until then,

you know Agnes is lookin' in on you, so...

- No worries!

- Hugabug. Mr. Hugabug!

- Hurry, hurry, hurry, come on.

- Hugabug. Mr. Hugabug!

Yeah. Yeah.

Mr. Hug-a-bug


Hug-a-bug Bear

If you try to find him

Well, he won't be there

But if you're feelin' blue

And a little bit scared

He'll be right beside you

Mr. Hug-a-bug Bear

- Night-night, angel faces.

- Good night, Mom.

- Good night.

- No worries.

Hey, Mr. Marco.

- How was dinner?

- Dinner was great, Milo.

You lousy, double-crossing son of a bitch.

We should never have swiped these.

You got paid.

You want your 50 bucks back? Here.

What do you care? You got plenty

of stamps now. Let me give these back, okay?

- Put 'em down!

- I'll tell you what.

I'm just gonna walk outta here.

That way, nobody has to get hurt,

if you catch my drift.

- You lousy punk!

- Ow!



Ow, okay.


- Just... You made your point.

- No, that wasn't my point.

This is my point.


Hey, you!

Where are you going now, smart guy? Huh?
