Good morning, kitty!

Come in here, baby!






No, Pa.

Children, children!


Time to get up!

Johnny! Johnny!

Johnny, wake up!

Alright, Ma.

Thomas! Thomas!


- Yes, Ma.

- Come on, get up.

Isaac! Isaac!


Ma, just another minute.

No, I don't want you to

be late for school.

- Just one more wink.

- Now, no, get up!

Thomas! Johnny!

Wake up!

- Isaac!

- Ma, that hurt!

But not half as much as

if I have to call your father.

Now get up!

Susan, mama's little child.

I told you not to suck your thumb.

Come on, sweetheart.

Wake up!

Suzie, darling.

Susan, wake up.

There a sweetie.

Come on now, you must get up,

'cos breakfast's ready.

Come along.

- Yes, you will.

- Yes, I will.

Yes, you won't.

Now, boys, come on,

breakfast is all ready.

Where are my pants?

Johnny, where are my pants?

How should I know?

You had them last.

- Somebody's hidden my pants.

- There are your pants.


- Get my pants away from that mutt!

- Get them yourself!

I'll break his back!

Give me that! Give me that!

Give me the bat!

- You're hurting my hand!

- Give me that! Give me it!

Don't you hit my dog!

You'll get my pants away

from that mutt!

Here are your old pants!

Pa, it wasn't me!

It wasn't me!

It wasn't me, Pa!

It wasn't!

Pa, it wasn't me!

I don't care which of the which of you

it was, if you wake me up again...

Now, I don't want to hear

another sound out of you.

- "It wasn't me, Pa! It wasn't me!".

- Shut up!

Why don't you go and tell him

where the pants were for?

Leave me alone!

Tattletale, tattletale,

hanging on a bull's tail.

When the bull...

Come here! Come here!


Mommy, tell Johnny

to leave me alone.

Johnny, you wild Indian,

you let Thomas alone.

- Just wait til I get him alone.

- Go and get washed.

Thomas, breakfast is ready, go.

And tuck this shirt tail

in your pants.

Give me that, I was here first.

Turn loose or I'll tell Ma.


Tattletale, tattletale,

mother's little baby.

"Ma, Ma!".


But Ma, the Johnson's twins wear

the bow on this side.

But Susan, you're not a twin,

and mother like it

on this side.

- Good morning, Ma.

- Good morning, Isaac.

- Breakfast is ready.

- I won't be a minute, Ma.

Did you ever learn to throw

your water out after you're through?


See your teeth, that's it.

Tie the shoes.


Johnny, look at your neck and ears.

Ma, I'm clean!

I told you, Ma,

he never half washes himself.

- That hurts, Ma!

- Hold still.

- You're getting the soap in my eyes!

- Close them.

- There's soap in my nose

- Close it.

Now, Johnny,

you can rinse it off yourself.

- Thomas!

- Isaac, go ahead!

Go on, Isaac.

I'm hungry!

Children, here you are,

nice and hot.

Why haven't you eaten your meal?

Ma, Isaac won't say grace

and I'm hungry.

- I was just waiting on you, Ma.

- Don't wait on me, son.

I've got to fix your lunch baskets

and I don't want you to be late for school.

- Are you gonna give me that egg?

- I won it fair and square, didn't I?

- Are you gonna give me that egg?

- Give it to him, Johnny.

Give him his old egg, I'm hungry.

Here's your old egg!

Heavenly father,

bless and sanctify this food

to the nourishment of our body...

Careful, Ma.

Be careful!

Johnny, will you hold still?

Get up here.

- Ma?

- Yes, dear?

- Where are my books?

- Hanging in the kitchen.

Come on, Johnny.

Please, hold still.

- Ma, where is my cap?

- Where you last left it, Thomas.

If I knew where I'd left it, I'd get it.

That's just where are

you going to find it.

- Johnny!

- You're sticking me, Ma?

I can't be sticking you, dear.


Johnny, I'm waiting for you!

- Johnny, Isabelle is waiting for you.

- I've got to go, mommy!

Hold still, Johnny. Now you

hold still here? Just a minute.

- I've got to go!

- Alright, just a minute. Go on.

Thomas and Susan are ready?

Be good boy at school, dear.

Thomas! Susan!

- Wait there.

- Oh, you, that's not fair. Wait for me!

Phil, throw me a catch!

Ma, make her hurry.

It's the first bell already.

We're coming right away.

Isaac, wait for Susan!

Come here, let me see you.

Bye, bye.

Come along.

Thomas, don't you eat any

more green aples!

Isaac, be sure you hold Susan's hand

over the railroad crossing!

- Good morning, teacher.

- Good morning, Susan.

- How are you this morning?

- Fine.

- Good morning, Miss Mary.

- Good morning, Isaac.

Come here, get a load of this.

Isaac is sweet on teacher.

- It's time to ring the bell.

- May I ring it for you, Miss Mary?


Here he comes!

Get in line, boys!

- Good morning, Mrs. Shelby.

- Good morning, Mr. Nelson.

It must have been quite an accident!


I hope no one was hurt.

I was just judging by the big

wash out on the line.

Oh, Mr. Nelson!

I have it already for you this time.

I'll get it right away.

- Who are you talking to?

- The sewing machine man.

Hello, Nelson.

Hello, Shelby.

How goes it?

- Alright. What's new?

- Nothing to speak of.

I see they're hiring men

down at the tannery this morning.

Yes, I'm just reading about it

in the paper.

They only pay 2'5 a day.

Wear more than that out in shoe leather

walking that far to work.

You must wear pretty

expensive shoes.

I don't pay any more for my shoes

than anybody else,

but I'm gonna work for nobody

unless they pay me what I'm worth.
