- Ouch!

- Shh.

I bumped my knee.

Who cares about your dumb old knee?

Now be quiet and stay down. OK?

What are you doing that for?

- 'Cause thas what they always do.

- Who?

The Indians.

Now you stay here.

I'll tell you when to come, OK?

- [Dog barks]

- Ah, Boots.

Stay down, OK?


Quiet, Boots.


No. Shh.

[Gutteridge] Boots, hush up out there.

[Continues barking]

Oh, Boots!

- [Gutteridge] You hear me, Boots?

- Get away.

[Gutteridge] Hush up out there.

Here. This oughta shut you up.

Oh, for Pete's sake.

How did he do that?


Quick, take these. Hurry.

Well, if it isn't

Big Chief Red Top himself.

Don't see you since your ma's

bargain hunting at the supermarket.

Yes, sir.

I mean, no, sir.

Everybody's squeezing out

the small businessman,

and those empties don't help.

It does seem to me I get more

of these things back than I sell.

How's that grandpa of yours doing?

I haven't been to see him for awhile.

He's OK.

Well, thas six bottles. Be 12 cents.

- You want the usual?

- Yes, sir.

You should ask the lady

what she wants.

She wants the same as me.


Thas right.

I want the same as him.

OK. Two suckers on the house,

and the bottles and jelly beans.

But you better watch out, Napoleon.

When a woman agrees

with everything you say,

she's really got her eye out for you.

I don't think is right.

Is not stealing.

We gave him his bottles back.

But they were his bottles.

I don't eat the jelly beans myself.

They're for Charley.

Who's Charley?

Who's Charley?

Want to meet him?


OK. I'll take you.

But you gotta promise to help me

on exams tomorrow.

I'm not supposed to.

Well, OK.

Good. Come on.

Here, Charley!

Over here, Charley.

Come on.

Over here, Charley.

Come on.

- Charley's a horse.

- Yeah.

- [Napoleon] Here, Charley.

- [Sam] He knows you.

Of course he does.

Here, Charley.

- What are you trying to do?

- I'm gonna get on him.

He's teaching me to ride so I can be

a cowboy like my grandpa was.

Your grandpa was a cowboy?

Yep, and he's part Indian too.

I don't believe you.

You can't be an Indian and a cowboy.

My grandpa can.

Here, Charley. Come on.

[Napoleon] Here's your candy, Charley.

Come on.

He can carry the two of us.

- I can't ride.

- Just hold on, OK?

Come on.

Quick, before he finishes the candy.

Hurry. He's almost finished.

- Hold on tight. He's gonna go now.

- Where to?

Across the field to the water.

The candies make him thirsty.

Come on.

[Napoleon] Giddyup. Come on.

Giddyup, Charley.

Giddyup. Come on.

- [Napoleon] See, isn't it fun?

- [Sam] Yeah.

Aren't you supposed to have

a saddle and a bridle?

No. Thas only for people

who don't know how to ride.

- Giddyup.

- Come on, Charley!

[Napoleon] Thas it!

- He likes it.

- Yeah.

Come on.

- Thanks for the ride.

- Thanks a lot, Charley.

- You're the best horse.

- Goodbye.

- [Sam] Can you see her?

- There's nobody there.

- Good. She's probably still out.

- She ever hit you for being late?

No. I don't think

housekeepers are allowed to.

She justjabbers at me a lot.

I better make a run for it, Napo...

Oh, hi, Gertrude.

So, you finally decided to come home.

Do you know what time it is?

- No, ma'am.

- [Gertrude] Is six o'clock.

I don't know what you've been

doing, but les get one thing straight.

While your mother and father are away,

and I'm responsible for you,

I expect to see you home by five.

Now, is that understood?


Go to your room and get changed.

You look like something

the cat dragged in.

See you, Napoleon.

[Gertrude] What have you got
