Do you understand?

I'll take good care of your suit.

I'll brush it... every day.

I have work to do.

Leave me alone.

Now, go out and play.

I want you to get it for me.


You don't mean get it,

you mean steal it.

He keeps the keys of the

house on the end of a chain.

In his pocket, I know.

And you want me

to get hold of them,

just like that, huh?

I'm not a pickpocket, am I?

If... if you don't get me the key,

I'll tell him about the noises.

You'll do nothing of the sort.

Oh, yes, I will.

You'll see.

Listen to me, you little savage.

I put up with enough from you.

Spilling your food,

dirtying your dresses,

- Screaming and shouting...

- I'll tell him if you don't get the key.

So now you're a blackmailer?

All right.

Suppose you do get the

suit and make a scarecrow,

how could you put it up without

your father seeing it?

It will be too late, then.

You're a monster. Do you know that?

What do you want a

scarecrow for, anyway?

Oh, I want it...

I want something of my own,

my Very own.


all we can do is try.

Oh, thank you, thank you!


Come, come, come.

Whey-hey! Pretty.

Oh, it will be perfect.

Come... We'd better go down.

We have to put the keys back.

Come on.

Look, all she wants is

an old moth-eaten suit.

I made her do it.

I made her take the keys.

It will need filling.

- What will you use?

- Well, I'll use straw, rags.


Agnes, wait.

For his hands.

You're very handsome.

I don't think you cared for that.

Maybe it was too sad.

But I can play any kind

of tune you like. Listen.

- Why don't you let him play it?

- Oh, he could if he wanted to.

I'm sure.

Does he... Does he dance as well?

Only with me.

Don't be so sure.

Wait till I ask him nicely.


Oh, Monsieur, pardon.

Haven't we met before?
