Where's the paper? Suppose

he called our number and we muffed it?

- What number did he say?

- Number 36.


Boys, get ready with the introduction.

(jolly tune)

- Here you are, number 36. Where is it?

- Right here.

(music falters / flat bass note)

- 36? That must be her chest measurement.

- Give me that.

I said I'd take a child, I didn't say I'd take a...

Well, she's too big for her age.

Is that your signature?

She's a refugee like the rest,

and here you guarantee to take care of her

and that she'll not become a public charge.

She's your responsibility now, mister.

Young lady.

She's your responsibility now, mister.

Young lady.

This gentleman is your sponsor.

- How are you?

- How do you do?

I am so happy to be here.

Words cannot express how much I appreciate

your kind and noble act... noble act...

I thank you.

That was beautiful. You know...

- Now look, Miss...

- Karen Benson.

You didn't get your number mixed up,

Number mixed? Oh, no. Why?

You see, I was expecting kind of a...

Well, sort of a... About that size.

Oh, I see. But the refugees' numbers

are selected as the applications come in.

You never know who you'll get.

You got me. Don't you like me?

- It's not that...

- We're crazy about you.

We got the nursery all set, with dolls and

prunes and spinach... What am I saying?
