Where is Polly Cameron's room?
- I'm sorry, sir. No visitors are allowed.
- I'm her uncle.
[Girl] Don't touch my feet! Please!
She's in room 362.
[Girl Screams] Don't touch my feet!
- [Whimpering Continues]
- It's awful. She's in such terrible pain.
- What's wrong with her?
They don't know yet. Dr. Stevenson,
this is my brother-in-law, Whitney Cameron.
How do you do, Doctor?
I'm calling in a specialist, Mrs.
Cameron. It looks like tetany.
Mrs. Cameron, I think our worries are over.
- Oh, thank heaven.
- She was a mighty sick girl.
We're very fortunate.
- You still don't know what was wrong?
- Not for sure.
The tetany test was negative.
You know how grateful I am, Doctor.
I've got to call Doug.
Better phone outside.
Besides, I need a smoke.
Cam, now that you're here, how
about spending a few days with us?
I'd really like to, Lynne,
but I should get back tomorrow.
We're opening a new field in Venezuela.
You're always roaming all over the world.
Did it ever occur to you that we
might like to see you once in a while?
It's important for the kids.
- I should spend more time with them.
- You should.
Especially Doug. He never quite
got over his father's death.
I know. Hit him pretty hard.
He's at an age now when a boy needs a father.
You're the closest answer to that.
Let me see what I can do. Maybe
I can stay over for a few days.
- I dropped everything to get down here.
- And I deeply appreciate it.
I didn't mean that. Here's your phone.
It's just that I must find a public
stenographer and get some letters off.
- All right. You run along,
and we'll expect you for dinner.
One, two, three, four, five,
six, seven, eight. Chance.
Eh... Uh... oh.
Go to jail.
[Laughs] That's too bad, Uncle Cam.
I know a young man who's got
to go hopping right off to bed.
- Can't we play a little longer?
- It's way past your bedtime now,
and tomorrow's a school day.
- But Uncle Cam's only going
to be here a few more days.
- We're going to have fun too.
- How about our taking in the ice show tomorrow?
- Oh, boy! That's super!
- I'll pick you up at school.
- Gosh, I wish Polly could go too.
It was awful last night, the way she
kept yelling, "Don't touch my feet!"
Yes, I know. I heard her.
to get that out of our minds.
- Dad was just like that when he died.
- What do you mean?
imagination run away with him.
But his feet were turned in like hers,
and he was all stiff and funny too.
- He was?
- Sure, same as Polly.
Is that right?
Well, there was some similarity, I suppose.
But the doctors all agreed
Bill had virus encephalitis.
- Anyway, there must be a lot of things
with those same symptoms.
- I suppose so.
- Did you tell your Uncle Cam
about your baseball team?
- Boy, have we got a team.
I knocked two home runs so far.
Course, our field's not very big.
If we were only up in Boston, we could
see a lot of the Red Sox together.
spend the summer with me?
- Oh, would you, Lynne?
Why not? Sounds wonderful.
- Well, that's settled.
I've got an old sailboat. We could
have a lot of fun on weekends.
Lynne took us to Lake George last summer.
- I learned a lot about boats.
- He's quite a sailor.
- Seems to me Lynne's been mighty good to you.
- She sure has.
- Night, boy.
- Night, Uncle Cam.
- Night, Lynne.
- Good night, Doug.
You know, you've been wonderful, the way youRate this script:4.0 / 2 votes
