in your eye.

Don't you try

fooling with-

stop nudging me,

you wicked old woman.

I'm not a child.

I'll go when i please.

I see him, that big lug

leaning there, that texas.

You going to

the cathedral,

and it should be

for confession.

Of course, angelique. Cupidon,

take the marketing home.

Stay with us

until we're safe.

Do whatever will please

the old crow.

Oh, what a lovely

chou- fleur.

Still there.

Who, angelique? Who?

"Who, angelique?

Who, angelique!"

You and your cauliflower head

- you're two of a kind.

We'll now go

to the cathedral.

Cupidon, go home

with your basket

and meet us later

at begue's.

We'll ride.

I'm tired. It's hot.

I'm hungry.

Yes, ma'am.

Nice time for a ride

out to the lake.


I hate to see anybody

as plum beautiful as you

riding in a moth-eaten

old basket like this,

let alone those two nags

a- pullin' it.

If you'll do me the honor

of riding in my carriage...

i'm driving a pair of

long-tailed bays to the runabout.

Brought them

all the way from texas,

and they're beauties, and

they're thoroughbreds, just like-

well, that sounds terrible,

but i don't mean to

compare you, ma'am, to a-

but if you'll allow me,

ma'am, l-

this cup of coffee.

I ain't gonna let you

do it. Do you hear me?

I ain't gonna

let you do it.


I think he's beautiful.

Ah! I'll

punish him.

Allez. Vite, vite.

I'll take him and lock

him up with the savages.

I'll lock him up

on bread and water.

So madame la comtesse

enjoys talking

to loutish cowboys?

I didn't talk to him.

He talked to me.

Even your aunt bess-

shut up! Do you

right here

on the street?

I wish

i could die now.

Your mama made me promise
