Do you have any notebooks?

No, we have no notebooks either.

How about ink?

No ink either.

How about a geometric compass?

We don't have one, but we

do have the "goat legs" device

Here, take a look.

You stick a pencil in here,

stand it like this, and turn it

And do you have any

pencils in stock?

No. No pencils.

And what's in those

ink cartridges?

There's nothing in them.

They're just there for decoration.

And what did they

used to contain before?

Little boy, why don't

you take a hike?

You can do that yourself.


Well? Has it begun?

Saint Yakov Alekseevich

They're just going to the bath-house

Aunty-dear, do you have

any erasers?

Yes, we do have erasers.


So, are you taking them?

I'm taking.

Varya, ring him up!

Ask if they said

anything over the radio

Well, ask, go ahead.

Well...those bastards!

- Is it a coup?

- No, not that

They stole our rubber hose

Yakov Alekseevich, may I please run home?

Mom's having a heart attack.

Mom, let's not talk about that

So you don't even believe

there's happy families out there

There are... one in a thousand

And you will have one, too.

Why do you refuse it in advance?

Mom, I thought we had an agreement...

OK, I'll keep mum

...And how is Val'ka doing?

Is she still rotating her boyfriends?

She is.

Well, that's the way to go.

She'll look around for some time

and finally find someone

Whereas I'm gonna die

and you will be left all alone

But you'd better ask me:

"Is it easy to live your whole life alone?"


The majority of women have already been married,

got a divorce, and will never marry ever again.

not for anything!

But people will gossip that no one

wants to marry you

And what do you think? You think

I have no boys I know?

- I don't mean that

- Well, I have them!


A guy.

Then why are you sitting

at home all the time?

Go out with him.

Mom, where am I gonna go

if you are sick?

What do I need you for?

I'll knock on the neighbor's wall

and she'll come over

Come on, go out with him

And you know something!

Bring him here.

We could all watch TV together

And I could enjoy a bit more

Ah, here it is.


Well if you want, maybe

I will bring him here now

Sweetheart, put on my shoes

Mom, it's wet outside,

they'll get ruined

Just put them on

Shurik! Hello! How's life?

Life's normal. But who is this?

It's Nastya? Have you

forgotton me? Ay, ay, ay!

You and I met at Mymrik's

birthday party

Oh, are you Valya?

No, I am a friend of hers.

I was wearing a beige dress.

So, what are you doing right now?


And I had some free time,

so I thought, why don't I call you.

It's such nice weather,

maybe we can take a walk?

Well, I am actually busy

Shurik, I really need you.

I have a proposition for you.

We need to talk.

Alright, I'll meet you at 7

by the Engels monument.

Good. I'll be there.

Shurik! Here I am.



Well... what's up!

So, what's going on? Report.

Are we just gonna stand around here?

Let's take a walk.


Well...start talking.

Quite honestly, I don't have

any proposal for you.

I was just in the right mood,

so I decided to give you a call.

And I am glad that I called

Actually, I've got lots

of studying to do

You shouldn't study all the time. Your

whole life will pass and you won't notice

How about we go to my place.

It's better than freezing ourselves out here.

Let's go

- Young man!

- Me?

Could you please

punch me in the face?

Don't react to him

I deserve it

We're not bothering you,

and you please don't bother us

Come, come
