The Far East.

- Far East?

- Yeah. That's the hot spot.

Burma, Indochina, Hong Kong,

just the place for the old Pete Garvey

and his sizzling typewriter.

- Far East, huh?

- Yeah!

Now you're beginning to reach me.

You're getting through to me.

- This is for Mr. Garvey.

- Oh, a letter for Mr. Garvey.

Who wants to take it to him?

Mr. Garvey told me

to bring his mail today!

Pete Garvey is my friend! Anybody

don't like it, gets a sock in the nose!

Sock in the nose!


- That's he, that's Bobby.

- That's Bobby.

Come here a moment. I want to

introduce you to Mr. and Mrs. Godfrey.

- Come on let's go!

- Bobby! Bobby, come here!

- Come on let's go!

- Bobby! Bobby, come here!

Now, Bobby!

- That was Bobby.

- He's just a little shy.

We might as well adopt a rabbit.

Mr. Garvey. A very nice couple

are here from America,

- they want to adopt Bobby!

- Good!

- But he...

- I know, you can't catch him, huh?

- Every time, he runs!

- He's a shifty little sprout, all right.

- You are leaving us?

- Yep, paper called me back.

It will break Bobby's heart.

He adores you.

What are we gonna do with him?

Please, we must place him

before you go. Come!

Oh, this is a wonderful little guy.

I can vouch for his honesty,

his intelligence,

and his sunny disposition.

He's practically a combination of

Joe DiMaggio and Monsieur Beaucaire.

Make with the manners, Bobby.

Oh, Bobby!

He just does this every once in a while.

It's a nervous habit from the bomb

shock. A little care, attention...

Personally, I do not care for children,

it is just that my wife...

Quiet, Walter. We'll come

some other time, Mr. Garvey.

Mr. Walter Godfrey... Aren't you with

the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra?

The Boston Philharmonic Orchestra

is with me.

Oh, you'll excuse my unfortunate
