It's heaven. It's Wormwood Scrubs.
Two pillow cases.
And, Goldie, you'd better get him
a hot water bottle.
Oh, yes, mum. It'll be a real dip for him
after what he's been used to.
You've laid a fire in his room, Goldie?
That's good, that's good.
And Goldie, this time do remember to screw
Oh, yes, mum.
Hello, dear. Where have you been?
I hope you haven't been extravagant.
Darling, even a K.C. can afford muffins.
Uncle Jim's favorite food, don't you remember?
No, my brother's coming home
after a long stay in...
How much are the roses?
Lovely day, isn't it?
Not so nice as it was yesterday.
That's where you're wrong.
It's a much nicer day that yesterday
and nicer than the day before.
In fact, it's the nicest day in four years.
Hey, you gave me half a crown.
What is it now?
Don't worry, mother.
The police are very thoughtful.
Oh, do you think so, dear?
There he is.
It isn't he at all. It's Gilbert.
In a taxi.
Taxi? I'd take a bus.
I'd stay at home.
Gilbert, darling, where have you been?
I've been quite worried, dear.
What do you mean by disappearing like this
without a word?
I, er... I've been hard at work.
Painting isn't work.
Now let me tell you...
Will you lend me five bob, father?
The taxi, I've only got a pound.
Better change it.
As a matter of fact I haven't got a pound.
Broke? Why you had a year's allowance
Yes, I know. But it's very expensive in Paris.
Paris? What were you doing in Paris?
Improving my technique.
How's the Follies Bergre?
Not very folly, but still very bare.
How dare you joke about your expenses!
Now, dear, dear, please!
It's all very well to say that, but...
I'm sure you are both hungry,
What about my five bob?
Oh, well, there.
There's four and six.
Come along, darling.
Excuse me, officer, but can you tell me
what bus will take me to Kensington?
27, 14 or 59, sir.
And they all go to Kensington, do they?
If I like, I can get on to one.
If I don't like, I don't have to, eh?
I beg your pardon?
If I like, I can go to... Richmond.
Or Edmond, or China.
If you like, you can go to...
Look Here, we may as well get one thing straight.
I'm not going into your office.
Gilbert, darling, I wish
you'd keep off that subject.
Not too late, my dear. I'm here.
Uncle Jim, darling, how lovely to see you.
Are you really tired, Jim?
Not when I see you, Emily.
Well, Jim, I hope you've had a pleasant er...
Oh, Jim, dear, I...
Yes, I'm out. Like the leprechauns.
What did you expect?
After all, you've been away...
Yes, four years.
Less six months for good conduct.
Dear, you must be starving.
Now come along. What will you start with?
Nonsense, I know what the food's like in those places.
