Who might be

interrupting me prayers?

Oh, it's you patty.

Well, why would you

be talkin' to me?

You know, i'm just

a poor cobbler.

What can i do?

Ahh, i see.

But, why me?

Well, i'll do me best.

Aye. Well, i've always had

a lot of faith in you, too.

[Music blaring

from headphones]

Knock it off!

Excuse me, sir.

How much farther?

You're going to

erinville, right?

Yes, sir.

Oh, not

too much further,

i'd say erinville

is right at the end

of that rainbow.

Got a pot of

gold waiting there

for you, do you?

Pot of gold?

Well sure!

Leprechauns hide

their gold

at the end

of rainbows.

What's a leprechaun?

Why, i thought everybody

knew about leprechauns.

A leprechaun is an elf

from ireland with special

powers of his own.

If you capture one

he's got to take you

to his pot of gold,

and grant

you three wishes.

But be careful,

if you let him out of

your sight for one moment

he's gone

and owes you nothing.

Do you think there's

leprechauns in erinville?

I recall a rumor

that there's a leprechaun

around erinville.

But mind you,

it was just a rumor.

Where did it go?

The rainbow?

Don't be worryin'

yourself none, laddie.

I know where

we're goin'.

You don't think

you're being a little

too obvious, do you?

No. As a matter

of fact, i don't.

It's part

of the plan.

Seems to me

the last thing sam

needs is a dreamer.

Why don't

you just help me

with the ladder?

Why don't you just

ask her to marry you

and get it over with?

Cause she'll say no!

You two boys need

to have some faith.

Learn to believe.

She needs someone

who has at least one

foot on the ground.

What she needs

is me,

and fortunately

i'm available.

Right on time.

See ya, boys.


Good morning,

good morning!


The usual?

Yes, indeed.

So Alex, what

kind of scientist

are we studying

to be today?

An epidemiologist.

A what?



Somebody who studies epidemics-

you know, like the black plague?

Sounds pretty

serious to me.

It is.

Your niece and

nephew coming today?


How long

since the

plane crash?

Almost 6 months.

Well, if anybody

can help them face

reality, you can.

I hope so.

Ta, ta!

See ya.

Come in.

Getting settled okay?

I'm glad you decided

to come up here

for the summer.

Mom said being here was

like being in heaven.

So i figured maybe

that will make it easier

for him to find me.

Hey, you're going

to have a great time.

And i'm sure you'll have

all sorts of adventures.


Well sure.

Hey, just look out there.

Who knows what adventures

are waiting for you out there.

Why don't you

come downstairs

for a bite to eat?


Are you coming?

Be right there.

[Loud music from headphones]



We were just about

to have some lunch.


I said

we were just about

to have lunch.

No thanks.

Are you sure?

I made some


i'm not hungry.


star gazing?


Did you ever

see so many stars?

There's the

big dipper.

See it?


And there's

the north star,

it's helped many

a lost soul find

their way home.


Alex has

a telescope.

Maybe tomorrow

she can show you

how to use it.



Time for bed.


aunt sam.





I sure hope dad knows

about the north star.


ready for landing?


Okay, here we go!

Again! Again!

Sorry, Tommy. It's

time for me to go.

Tell me what it's

like up there, again.

It's beautiful.

You feel like you're

floating over and

through the clouds

and the earth's
