She was "Lo", plain "Lo" in the morning...
standing four-feet-ten in one sock.
She was "Lola" in slacks, she was "Dolly" at school...
she was "Dolores" on the dotted line.
In my arms she was always...
Light of my life...
fire of my loins.
My sin... my soul.
had I not first met Annabel.
We were both fourteen.
can mark him for life.
She wanted to be a nurse.
I wanted to be a spy.
All at once, we were madly, hopelessly in love.
Four months later, she died of typhus.
But I kept looking for her.
The poison was in the wound, you see...
and the wound wouldn't heal.
I took my advance and went to live at the house
of some old friends of my late uncle's, the McCoos...
in the New England town of Ramsdale.

One minute, something's burning.
Lord have mercy... Mrs. Haze'll be down in one.
Is that Professor Humbert, Louise? Tell him I'll be down in one.
She’ll be down in one.
Mrs. Haze, is it?
I am so pleased to make your acquaintance.
Um... I wonder, could I?
and we think of them as primitive.
I mean, look at us.
Upstairs... I and Lo have our rooms just there...
and this is your room.
Space for a desk, anything you want.
And at 20 dollars a month, you can't beat the price.
And here's the bathroom... bit of a mess.
And this is the kitchen.
Now if you have any special food needs, you just say.
A... timetable, for when I... I was hoping I wouldn't have to...
but I think I've got to go all the way back to New York.
No, it's... there's a Baudelaire conference...
This is not a neat household, I confess...
Very comfortable indeed.
Now, don't say no...
until you've seen the piazza.
Well, I call it the piazza.
It's so much work to keep it healthy and green.
A life's work.
That's my Lo.
And these are my :.
I love :
Lily's a nice name, don't you think?
How much did you say the room was?
You have to be an artist.
A madman, full of shame and melancholy, and despair...
She stands... unrecognized by them...
