I say, fellows, here they come.

Gangway for the bride and groom!

Make way for them there!

Oh, isn't she beautiful?

Dearest beloved, are you limping?

No, I'm not. It's just my funny ankle.

Your what?

I fell off a horse when I was little.

Then you didn't tell me everything.

Every time I get nervous,

I slip the shoe off my heel.

Miss Blake, you will remain after class

And copy your marriage vows 500 times.

Charmed.

Miss Blake doesn't live here anymore.

There's only a mysterious Mrs. Myles.

happy honeymoon, Professor Myles.

Best wishes, sir.

Good luck, sir.

Sorry, sir. They just

made their getaway.

Where are they headed for?

Well, do you know the number of the car?

All right.

Scotland yard extension.

Hello? Let me speak to inspector Beale.

This is the foreign

office. Peter Galt speaking.

Hello, inspector.

Pick up a car carrying

Richard Myles and his bride,

Heading for a continental honeymoon.

Should be somewhere

between here and Dover.

Don't let them leave the

country before I see them.

It's urgent.

Thanks.

But this isn't the lord Walden.

It isn't Dover, either.

What are you afraid of, Richard?

The Oxford sense of humor, dear.

It's deadly this time of the year.

They'll be waiting at the lord Walden.

Think of all the fun and games

You'll deprive them of.

Yes.

Think of it.

Well...

Good evening.

Good evening.

Careful, dear.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Ahem.

I suppose it's all right.

First door on the left,

Top of the stairs.

Mind you, draw the blinds.

What?

There's a practice blackout tonight.

Oh.

You mind?

Uh-uh.

"We always have to pay for all we have

"and what we hope to have.

"I hate to think of what the peace

"and serenity of our honeymoon,

Grabbed from a crazy

world, will cost us. "

What are you looking for?

April 2nd.

Oh, you remember that day?

"April 2nd.

"I met Richard Myles.

"He doesn't seem to have progressed

"beyond the paleolithic age...

15,000 years B.C."

"I decided to marry him. "

Oh, but I...

I haven't finished the day's doings.

You can't finish it.

Why not?

Because it isn't over yet.

Who is it?

Mr. Smith?

Smith?

You've got the wrong room.

Oh, Smith!

Yes, this is Smith.

What is it?

It's constable Jones from the village.

Can I have a word with you, sir?

Right now?

If you please.

All right.

Mr. Edward Smith?

Uh, yes.

Could I trouble you to step

downstairs with me, sir?

This is no time for practical jokes.

This is no joke, missis.

It isn't very practical, either.

That just may be,

But I must trouble you

to come down, sir...

And come quietly.

Very well.

You won't be gone long,

will you, Mr. Smith?

Five years.

That's the maximum

for false registration.

You know, I can explain all this.

I'm glad you can.

You've given us a lot of trouble.

The whole police force

has been looking for you.

Really?

Well, you know what

college undergraduates are.

A bridegroom sort of has to

protect himself in the clinches.

We'd have had you before

if you hadn't changed cars.

That's what did it.

Did what?

I have to hold you, sir,

until a certain party

From the foreign office gets here.

The foreign office?

Wait in here, if you please.

He's on his way now.

In Paris, you'll make

your first contact,

Then go right into Germany...

Have a heart, Peter.

I shouldn't even be talking to you.

My bride's upstairs wondering

what's happened to me.

We both know what it means

If the Germans go into Poland,

And our information is they will.

Yes, I know, but...

It won't be easy to find this man.

People in Germany don't talk these days.

Even our own people will
