Thank you, Whity.

I don't want one after all.

Very well, madam.

You called?

I'd like a candy too, Whity.

Thanks, Whity.

I love you, I love you.

Oh, I'm sorry.

I knocked the bell over.

I don't understand you.

You don't want to be free.

You like it when they beat you.

You swine.


and dependent.

You don't deserve any better.

Come and lie down with me.

I can pay if you like.

Get dressed and get out.


do I appeal to you?

Come here, my boy.

Comb my hair.

But you mustn't hurt me.

Don't I have soft hands?

Why haven't you killed my father?

Stay where you are,

you damned n*gger!

Stop that.

You must be crazy.

Letting a Nicholson peel potatoes.

He likes doing it.

Don't forget...

you're a Nicholson, too.

I'm a n*gger.

You called?

Frank was just here.

You insulted him.

Since when may a black...

insult a white man?

You're the curse of this family.

You know you have to be punished.

Yes, I deserve it.

My God, he's crying.

He's really crying.

A human emotion.

And I always thought

you blacks weren't human beings.

You're right.

We're not human beings.

Why haven't you killed Frank?

I implored you to.

Didn't I implore you?

We wanted to share the property.

Just think it over.

Who else would give

the likes of you...

a chance like that?

I can't do it, milady.

She'll be down at once, mister.

Hello, Ben.

- Hello. Dave.

Can I bring you a sherry?

That'd be nice.

Take a seat!

- Thanks.

How are things

with your young wife?

Everything still OK?

I... I'm getting a divorce soon.


I knew it.

That woman's a she-devil.

You can go now.

Tell me all about it.


believes I'm about to die.

She's just waiting

to inherit the estate.

We'll keep her in suspense

a bit longer.

Then wham.

She'll be out on her ear.
