Daddy, where's the car?


Father Brian?

Sorry to disturb.

Yes of course.

Come in, Katherine.

Sit down.

Thank you Dawn.

Mr. Walch tells me your recital's

coming along very, very nicely.

Sorry I won't be around to see it,

But I'm sure that you'll enjoy performing for your

friends and your parents all the same, won't you?

Where are you going?

I have some personal business in Albany.

How long does it take to get to Albany?

Oh...couple of hours...by train.

So about the same exact time to

come back then, I guess...huh?


are you concerned about something?

I mean just wish you could

stay and see my performance.

That's all.

Well, I'm sorry but this time

it just can't be helped.

When do you come back?

After the break...

...with everyone else, I should imagine.

Is something funny?



Why ?

You smiled a little.

I did?

Yes you did.

I was just thinking to say I hope

you have a fun time in Albany.

Headache, you say ?

and my throat kinda hurts when I swallow.

You poor thing...

It would be a shame to be sick over the break.

I know...

Here you are, dear.

So you really think I should tell him?

Rose, of course you have to tell him!

It's like half his.

It's half his problem anyway.

No it isn't.

Not really.

Well it should be.

He's the one who got you in this

situation in the first place.

He knew exactly what he was doing.

Like I didn't ?

He was doing it to me.

And I was liking it.

Don't laugh.

It's so not funny.

Besides it's only been four days.

I could still get it.

You think you're going

to tell your parents ?

Of course, everyone is excited

to have your parents come and

tour the classrooms and share your life

here at Bramford with them.

But that doesn't mean

there's going to be any change when

when it comes to con-duct ex-pec-ta-tions.

If anything, conduct is more

important today than any other day

because today we are all here

today representing Bramford.

And that means that you are representing

all the young women who came before you

and all the women who will follow you

after you've moved on.

Sound good?

Sounds good...

And if I don't see you before you

leave, have a great week off

We'll see you on the...

Rose !

Where are you going ?

I was gonna check out some of the performance.

You okay?

Yeah, of course

Where are your parents ?

They're waiting inside

so I better go.

Okay, well...I'll see you

next week then, okay?


Have you checked your cellular phone?

Maybe they called you there.

I don't have one yet.

They said maybe for my birthday.

You know, bad weather coming in

all over the east coast an'

maybe they got caught up in that.

Planes get delayed.

And Rose, what about you?

I thought we got out on Friday so

I told my parents to come on Friday.

Guess I spaced out.

Were you able to reach them ?

Yeah...it just may take a day or so

to change their plans.

- A day?

- Yeah, 'cause they're...

planning on coming

on Friday so they'll

probably still come on Friday.

All right, well...Miss Prescott

and Miss Drake

will be here in any case.

Now do you hear that, Katherine?

It happens that parents get confused and

Worst case is they come on Friday

and everyone goes home

and has a really nice break anyway

After all...we can't let you live here.


Would you look after Kat

until her parents arrive?

I actually haven't been feeling very well.

I have a really sore throat.

I was gonna stay in bed

Uh, Miss Prescott,

You will call Mr Cornish

in a few hours, both on his home

phone and his mobile
