things would different

But you're the man

of the family now.

I don't want to be the man

of the family.

I want to go to Coney Island

with the fellas.

You don't want. You want.

You think I'm going to work every day

in a department store,

and stand on my feet behind a counter

at Polancer and Keethouse.

But I got to do it

or we don't eat.

And you got to stay home

with Joey tomorrow.

Don't look like that.

It's not such a big sacrifice.

You go to Coney Island some other time.

Come on have your lunch Lennie.

Oh Lennie!

See that Joey gets to bed on time tonight.

And you stay in with him.

Lennie. I am leaving you a

shopping list with six dollars

A five and a one.

Make sure you get the right

change for the five now.

Don't forget. Promise.

And remember Mrs. Carlson is always

home, in case anything happens.

Roses are red,

violets are blue,

I can't go to Coney Island

and you can't too.


If it's nice tomorrow,

I think Joey to get some air.

I don't want you both cooped

up in the house all day long.

I know you think you take care of

your brother. Your a good boy Lennie.

I'm glad I have two wonderful boys.


Oh, Joey!

Oh gosh, what I put out and you

haven't touched a thing

I'm not hungry.

I don't know how you live.

Come on. Drink your milk.

I'm leaving money and the shopping list

right here under the telephone.

Bye, Joey.

Get out of here!

Happy birthday.
