You were just

a little freckled cocoon.

And now,

now you are a butterfly!

A beautiful

white and golden butterfly!

If our butterfly could manage it,

I wish she would serve us tea

in the sitting room.

You'll want to wash first, Dmitri.

You'll find your old room

upstairs ready for you.

I can't get over it!

She's become a raving beauty!

She's a very sweet girl.

She's a servant.

You're not forgetting that.

- What difference does that make?

- With the cow!

What a book!

What marvelous thoughts

He's a great thinker.

The police are after him.

Is it an immoral book?

It's the most moral book

ever written.

It says that all people are equal

and that the land

should belong to everybody.

- Is there a love story?

- No, no, of course not.

- Love stories are for children.

- I like them.

They're all right in their place,

but before love comes humanity.


But if people didn't fall in love,
