Only to the girls, of course.

A perfect chaperone.

That is, of course, only if you find

the idea of my presence distasteful.

Oh, no. Quite the contrary.

Then may I see the room?

I, I doubt if it will be what you want.

You see. It's really most ordinary.

I like it for that.

Isn't that a beech?

And an elm?

We've crocuses in the back garden.

And daffodils.


No acacia or pimento or mango?

Why did you say that?


You're homesick.

No! Mrs. Harwood.

I hated the islands.

I loathed the exile.

I longed for England.

With a desperation you can never know.

Oh yes I can.

I hated Jamaica, too.

I thought

If I didn't come back, I should die.

And yet I don't know.

London isn't home.

Like really.

You're right.

It's changed.

Or we have.


We are alike, aren't we?

Our own special kind of loneliness.

Goodbye, Mrs. Harwood. I'm sorry to have

taken up so much of you time.

You... you don't like the room?

Oh, enormously!

It's 12 shillings a week. Bed and breakfast.

I should like to make

all arrangements in advance.

Oh, that isn't necessary.

Oh, please.

Here's a token of good faith.

I'm sure it'll be a very happy association.

We have so much in common.


Oh, don't come down. I'll let myself out.


Dee dum ta tum tum

Dee da de tem sit still!

Now Verggie, while mommy combs you.

That's a good girl.

Hold still, now!


All right. All right.

You were so long, I was worried.

Are you in trouble?

How long have they been there?

I don't know.

Yet I don't like this.

I'm afraid for you.

For yourself, you mean.

For us both! Ken.

My name is Mark, not Ken.

How many times must I tell you?

Oh, Mark's so common.

You might use a little bit more imagination.

Monty's nice.

Or Albert.

Why don't you call yourself Albert?
