- Nice kids.

I wish they were on another island.

Come on, kids, help your mom.

Give her the best room you got.

- I got nothing left.

- I'll end up in the barracks yet.

- Put her with Mrs. Horn.

- And me?

- It's only for a week.

- Only?

I won't get in the middle

of a happy marriage.

- Anything with a roof'll do.

- Follow me.

- It's my job to look after her.

- Says who?

Son of a...

Throwing a lady in a monkey cage!

- It's the kids' pet.

- Take it out!

Sorry to put you out.

- We'll get this place squared away.

- It'll take a year.

We've cleaned up islands in minutes.

Take it away!

Careful of my record player!

It means a lot to me.

Glad it's not a radio.

Haven't heard a commercial...

...any news, nothing

since I left the States.

- Get her out of here!

- Don't rush! I'm here for a week.

- Hey, Kilroy!

- What's cooking, Pop?

Tell everyone to get home

before they get caught in the rain.

Debbie! Tommy!

- Hi!

- Hi!

Get in before you get soaked!

Got any candy? Any gum?

Hey, you people!

Come sit down!

Chow. Maybe not so good,

but not so bad.

- I'll be eating out.

- You are so wise.

Come on, kids.

It's time to hit the sack!

Come on! Go on to bed!

- I hardly feel like eating.

- The rain doesn't help much.

- How long will it last?

- Two months, off and on.

Mostly on, if I remember

the rainy season right.

My dear?

Dear Lord, we thank thee

for this gathering...

- and for the food which

thou hast provided for us this day.

- Amen.

- Amen.

I didn't know Mr. Horn

allowed radios here.

What do you say?

Hi, folks, you done eating?

That's a good-looking layout.

- Hi, frogmen.

- Here's your shoe.

- Come on in and get wrung out.

- Yeah!

It's that cheap girl who kept playing

her phonograph to attract sailors.
