The Small Back Room


Accidents do happen in wartime.

- It's hardly in our line.

- We don't think this was an accident.

It's the fourth this week.

And always afterJerry planes

have been over.

You mean they're dropping booby traps?

- Looks like it.

- And always kids?

Three kids and a man.


That's odd it should have been kids

three times out of four.

I expect the blasted things are

mocked up as teddy bears or candy bars.

- More?

- No, thanks.

Jerry has a lovely mind.

- No witnesses or survivors?

- No.

- What, nothing at all?

- Well, we did find something.

Oh, come on. Spill it.

After the last incident.

It was in the area of the explosion.


- Sammy!

- What?

- Who knows what's in it?

- I do.

Soup. Or coffee.

It's a thermos.

- That's right.

- Oh! I need some coffee.

It fooled a lot of people.

Not you.

It's a Jerry type thermos.

Probably fell out of the aircraft when they

jettisoned the other thing, whatever that is.

- Well, there's only one thing to do if you want me in on this.

- I do.

Get me in early. Next time it happens,

send me a wire. I'll come, wherever it is.


I'll take you up on that.

Well, I better be moving.

Come back to the local

and have a drink.

No, I must go.

I'm sorry. I don't keep any stuff here.

We're keeping this one for, uh...

V- day.

- No, really, I've got to get back.

- All right. I'll get your coat.

- Can I take you home?

- You have.


I live across the hall.

I could put you up

on the settee if you like.

Thanks. I'd sooner get out of town.

- The raids get me down.

- Oh, you get used to 'em, like toothache.

I hate toothaches.

Well, there's nothing like taking a nice

quiet bomb apart to steady the nerves.

- Good-bye.

- Good-bye.

- Mind how you go down the stairs.
