Clara, look. Isn't it extraordinary?

- What is it?

- Can't you read?

Wait till you hear

about our new teacher.

- I think it's romantic.

- Oh, you do?

Well, I don't. And neither will my mother

when she comes back.

- She's Mademoiselle D.

- Well, who's Mademoiselle D?

Hurry up. Miss Haines is in.

- Our teacher's name is Mademoiselle D?

- No. Her name is Desportes.

But she was known as Mademoiselle D.

Don't you understand?

Shh. Girls, be quiet.

"Jane Van Buren.

Margaret Van Rensula."

Did you hear what Emily found out

about our new teacher?

Everybody's in, Miss Haines.

Thank you, Rebecca.

This is Rebecca Jay.

"Agnes Brevoort.

Mary Simpson.

Marianna Van Horn.

Rose Stanton.

Clara Parker and Elizabeth ward.


Young ladies, you may go to your seats.

"Dora Vanderbilt.

Emily Schuyler.

Louise DeRham, Helen Lexington.

Faith DeLancy..."

- Give me the paper.

- Here. Be careful.

"Virginia Knowles."

- See the look I gave her?

I don't think she'll like it here.

You may sit down, young ladies.

And now I want to say

that it gives me great pleasure... introduce you

to your new instructress in French...

...Mademoiselle Henriette Desportes.

I'm glad to welcome her to our school.

And I trust you'll have the good sense

to profit by her teaching.

- You may take over.

- Thank you.

- Good morning, young ladies.

Good morning, Miss Haines.

Imagine, Emily...

...being involved in such a scandal

and teaching in our very class.

It's about time...

...we had some excitement in this school.

- And in your language:

Good morning, young ladies.

I've been appointed your teacher.

I hope before the end of the year I should

have deserved to become your friend.

Well, so much for that.

Will you turn in your literature books

to page one?

I will select at random from the roll.

Agnes Brevoort.

- Yes, mademoiselle?

- Will you start reading, please?

Dora. Give it to Emily.



Please, send me the paper.

Now Marianna Van Horn will translate.

Mademoiselle Van Horn,

you will translate, please.

I don't know the place.

The top of page one.

Perhaps Helen Lexington

has been paying more attention.

I, mademoiselle?

- Yes...

She'd better never jump on me

before the whole class...

...or I'll show her.

- Shh!

"What would you like to play?

No. Let us go to the woods... hunt for fraise... "

You call them strawberries.

They are the strawberries

that grow in the woods.

How did you find out?

Mother's maid kept

all the Paris papers and I read them.

- Are you sure?

- Am I sure?

She's the same person

and I think it's wicked.

Mademoiselle Schuyler.

I believe that is your name,

Emily Schuyler?

Yes, mademoiselle.

You have been doing

a good deal of talking.

- Would you like to ask a question?

- Yes, mademoiselle.

But I'm not sure

you will like to answer it.

- Well, come here, will you?


Was there something

you would like to know?

Could you tell me how

to spell "Conciergerie"?

I beg your pardon?

I'm asking you how to spell "Conciergerie."

I think it's the name of a French prison.

Why do you want to know?

I mean, that particular word?

Well, you said yourself

we were here to learn.


Of course.






...E- R...

And then you might show us

how you spell the name Praslin.


Emily, be quiet.

And now if you will

all excuse me, please.

Come in, please.

Miss Haines, l...

- You?

- Yes, it's I.

I came to welcome you

to your new home.

Oh. Then I'm afraid you've come

for nothing, Henry.

I must leave at once.
