Genre: Drama

- Did you take your shoes off?

- Of course I took them off.

- I'm going to keep my socks on.

- What do you want to do that for?

- Shall I put my shirt on?

- What do you want to do that for?

- Where the hell is your pillow?

- It's the wrong way round.

Hello? Who?

Tenu here. Lulu's not at home.

No idea when she's coming.

No. Bye.

Hi. Somebody just rang for you.

- Did you remember the tea?

- Yes.

You don't usually

remember anything.

"All the sick lined up,

woken up at six o'clock."

"Unnecessary running about,

time wasted queuing, poor service."

I can't find a clean cup. Wash a cup

for me, would you? And a spoon.

- Here you are.

- Thanks.

"Countless people

in hospital beds..."

- Hi!

- Hi.

You didn't miss anything

by not going to that lecture.

Have you heard

anything from my uncle?

No. Now he's ringing.

Alatalo. Yes, just a minute.

Tenu! It's for you.

I know, it's Hessu.

Hi, how are you?

No money?

I don't have any either,

no more than two or three marks.

Hang on, I'll ask Liisa.

- Liisa, got any money you can lend?

- No.

Lulu, can you lend me some money?

"Country people queuing,

feudal rights of head doctor."

There you are.

She doesn't want to help a friend.

Could you ring a bit later?

I'll try and persuade them.

Yes... Well, all right.

Bye, try and manage.

"The Central Party conservatives

have unified their ranks"-

- "but will they succeed in preventing

the modernization of their party?"


Where from? Just a minute.

Hello? Thanks.

Quiet, please! Hey, quiet there!

Tell everyone to come out of the

backroom here. Quiet, everyone!

Now let's concentrate for a minute.

Quiet, friends.

We've finally got the manuscript

we've been waiting for all this time.

I can promise you, we've got

an interesting time ahead of us.

We've already studied this

with certain people.

Some of the roles

have already been cast.

The purpose of this meeting is-

- to study

the role of the chorus in the play.

The chorus plays an important role.

All right. Let's have the girls

on the right and the boys on the left.

Come on, let's get moving.

Let's see how the chorus divides up.

Can I have a little group of

say four people up in front?

Kaj, you play something,

and I want to hear some singing, too.

O Lord bless our sovereign

- Grant him the bounty of thy grace

- Thanks.

Over there. A real fascist.

Thanks, that'll do.

I know how this one sings.

O Lord bless the Finnish nation

- Grant it the bounty of thy grace

- That'll do.

Let's take "My father was a soldier".

- Oh!

- Powerful song.

My father was a soldier

And handsome in his youth

when only...

- Thanks, that's enough.

- I'll sing the same one.

That's enough.

- Same one, please.

- I know you and how you sing.

O Lord bless the Finnish nation

Grant it the bounty of thy grace

So that at all times

As thy chosen people

Wave, red flag, wave

Rave, red priest, rave

Rage, red spleen, rage

Wave, red flag, wave

The worst of all is not to talk

about sexual matters at all.

That's what those teachers say-

- theology students

that never finished their studies.

I reckon those are

the sort of school things-

- where Little Kalle's school

is a lot better.

Little Kalle was once asked:

"What's the capital of Finland?"

Little Kalle answered: "Capital F."

- You're kidding.

- Not me.

And then

to the summer house we went

Where Cupid sits

with his thing all bent

And then the Charleston we would

dance if we only had a chance

And then a kiss of two

darling I love you

- Give me a beer.

- Get in the queue there!

Hello, it's only me.
