WITH A HARD CRICKET BALL,

CREATING A CONDITION OF

TORTICOLLIS- A STIFF NECK, TO YOU-

THEN YOU ASK ME:

WHETHER I'M HURT.

WELL, I ASSURE YOU, I WAS ENTIRELY ACCIDENTAL.

JUST A LUCKY HIT.

THAT'S ALL. I MEAN A-

BABBS, I THINK YOU'D

BETTER GO BACK TO THE GAME.

YES, BEFORE

YOU SAY ANYTHING MORE.

YES, SIR.

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN.

DON'T LET I UNNERVE YOU, OLD MAN.

SOME SIXES. YOU CAN DO IT.

VERY WELL.

LOOK. THERE ARE

THE GIRLS.

GOOD OLD TEA.

GOOD ON YOU, BABBS.

GREAT HITTING. WELL PLAYED,

BABBS. WELL PLAYED, BABBS.

CALM DOWN A BIT. HE'S OVER THERE, BABBS.

OH, YES.

THANK YOU-

I'M EXCEEDINGLY SORRY, SIR.

ANOTHER LUCKY HIT, EH?

YES, SIR.

I MEAN, NO, SIR.

OLD FIRE, I ALWAYS SAY.

OH, THAT'S INTERESTING.

PASSION FOR THEM MYSELF. REALLY?

TO BORROW MY WHITE TIE...

PLEASE, BABBS.

I'M THINKING.

I'M TRYING TO PU A SPEECH TOGETHER.

AND I'M TRYING TO PUT MYSELF

TOGETHER. WHERE'S MY TIE?

KITTY, MY DARLING.

IN ALL THIS WORLD, THERE

IS NO ONE QUITE LIKE YOU.

FLATTERY WON'T HELP YOU ANY.

I WANT MY TIE.

OH, I WASN'T SPEAKING TO

YOU. I'M REHEARSING A SPEECH.

KITTY'S COMING TO LUNCH, AND I'VE

GOT TO PROPOSE TO HER DIRECTLY AFTER.

THAT'S ALL VERY INTERESTING,

BUT I WANT MY TIE.

I'VE GOT TO WORK FAST.

OLD SPETTIGUE'S TAKING KITTY

AND AMY OFF TO SCOTLAND TONIGHT.

HE WANTS TO GET THEM

AWAY FROM CHARLEY AND ME.

WHAT'S THE MATTER? AFRAID YOU WON' MARRY THEM? NO, HE'S AFRAID THAT WE WILL.

YOU SEE, HE'S THEIR GUARDIAN.

GETS A SALARY FOR IT.

AS SOON AS THEY MARRY,

HIS INCOME STOPS.

AND THERE'S MY BAG.

I KNEW I DIDN'T PAWN IT.

IF YOU DON'T MIND, OLD MAN, I

THINK I'LL KEEP IT A LITTLE LONGER.

I'M GOING AWAY NEXT WEEKEND. SO AM I.
