When I was just a little girl

I asked my mother

what will I be

Will I be pretty

Will I be rich

Here's what she said

to me

Que sera...

- Honey? Honey, I'm home.

- Hi, honey.

- I'm here. I'm here.

- Hi.

Are we having a baby?

- Uh-oh!

- Oh, thank you.

It's okay, it's okay, we've got time.


Oh, ow, ow, pain.

Mr. Harrison Winslow? You're next.

Uh, I don't... I couldn't.

If this gentleman would like to go first,

that's, uh... I could use a moment, if...

- Would you like to?

- That's kind of you, thank you.

My pleasure.


Where is your brother? Come in the house.

Inside. Where's your brother?

- Mom, it's not late.

- Brush your teeth.

Yes, in the kitchen there.

Get your butt in. Billy!

- Mia, go home. Billy?

- Here he is, Penny.

We're just feeding these here pussycats.

We just feed these here pussycats, Mama.

You and these here pussycats

keep your mama itchin'. Come on.

- I gotta go to work.

- I'll be in to look after them.

Come on inside.

Agnes, thanks for lookin' out for him.

That's my lover boy, that one is.

- You know, you're spoilin' my kids rotten.

- Mmm-hmm.

- And them cats.

- Oh, shush about my cats.

Oh, Wilbur, I'm sorry.

And he'll be on late

at the bicycle shop all week.

All right, listen, uh,

I talked to the guys here at the office...

- Here you go.

- Thank you.

...and they're real excited about this thing.

We really think you got something.

- You're beautiful.

- Ah, he's such a flirt.

I think you'll

pretty much agree with this...


...that the only way to make any loot on it...

Oh, I've been looking all over for you.

- Not here!

- Well, I think right here is just fine.

Uh, how about up here? I'm almost done.

Well, I got a couple of questions.

Now, all the pictures we got

show either you or Wilbur...

- So?

- So?

- So?

- So?

Well, you've been up here

for five months now.

What... Five months is not so long.

It is, Julia, when you're waiting for somebody.

You know, everybody thinks I'm crazy

for letting you do this.

- Letting me do this?

- All right, all right, all right, I'm sorry.

John, I still have to be sure.

I never lived in a city before.

I don't want to end up like my mother.

She never went anywhere

and she never did anything.

Julia, you're not gonna end up like your mom.

Julia, you know, when you're not around me,

I don't care about anything.

There doesn't seem to be a reason

to do anything at all.


What I really came here to tell you was that

I made a deal with the bank.

I got the loan.

You bought the Granger place?

Yes, 75 acres, it goes across the road.

That's 300 acres, Julia, and it's all ours.

Look, maybe I'm just makin'

a fool of myself here, but...

I love you, and always have.

It just seems to me that I deserve an answer.

Yes or no?

Oh, John.

It's just that I...

Please, if you love me, can't you wait?

- Just a little while longer until...

- No, Julia, I've waited.

I've waited for years.

And I guess I got my answer.

I'm just a lonely boy

Lonely and blue

I'm all alone

With nothing to do

I have got everything

You could think of

But all I want

- Julia, table 53, come on.

- Oh, sorry.


Well, he left. He's really mad.

Don't worry, honey.

A man drives all the way in from Vacaville

just to see you, he's hooked.

You can reel him in anytime you want.

Danny, two Buds and a Pepsi.

Oh, Wanda, you're so full of it.

I love him.

I'm gonna lose him

unless I do something right now.

Wait. Wait, wait, wait, wait! Wait, wait, wait!

- Didn't you audition for the chorus last year?

- Uh, yeah. Uh, yeah.
