her two daughters to Edgemont.

Are you raising two young girls

all on your own?

That is most admirable.

Sonya's records.

All A's.

Mostly all A's.

I know Valery would feel that even a year

under your influence would be...


Mr. Weiler,

why did you wait so long to apply?

Our semester has begun.

Enrollment is full.

You can't imagine...

...the pain it causes me

to be sitting here before you... this late date.

But circumstances have not

permitted me to do so sooner.

What can I say?

Except that I know that you...

...with your culture and refinement

would appreciate the burden...

...the burden of love, of course...

...but nonetheless a burden of trying

to raise two motherless children.

To try to keep a little home

together for them.

And inculcate in them

the values that you... steadfastly uphold here at Edgemont.

Miss Tate...

...if you knew what it meant to me

to be able to entrust Sonya to your care...


Miss Tate.

I am beyond words.


I appreciate your sentiment, Mr. Weiler.

And...'s most unusual...

...but I'm willing... make an exception.

Welcome to Edgemont, Miss Weiler.

Thank you.

Good. Then that's settled.

Since you're here,

you'll start school with the other girls.

You'll need to leave a deposit

My assistant will handle it this afternoon.

...dealing herself a hand of solitaire.

That's mostly what my mother did.

She smoked Lucky's, played cards...

...and read paperback mysteries.

One after the other.

I've got some big news for my gals tonight.

Everything lit up when my father

came through the door at night.


...Weiler and Atkins...

...are about to patent...
