Rich and Strange


Hello, Emily.

Hello, Fred.

I think you'll lik e me in

this dress when it's done.

Oh. Have you broken

your umbrella?

I made you steak and

kidney pudding for tonight.

And i was wondering

whether you'd like

to stay in and listen to the wireless

or go out

to the pictures.

Mr. Baker will give his 12th

talk on accountancy in 3 minutes.

The pictures then,


Damn the pictures and the

wireless and the office.

I want some life!

Life, i tell you!

Like that.

What you want, dear, is

some little liver pills

and some fruit torte.

I don't want any pills.

I want some of

the good things of life.


Why should you be able

to spend less on yourself

than some women do

on their rotten poodles?

Why shouldn't you have

a hairdresser

and a lady's maid?

Why, Fred, i never

expect those things.

That's just it.

The good little women

like you don't want enough.

Get out of there!

I think the best place

for us is a gas oven.


To talk about gas ovens

when we've

a roof over our heads.

Food, beds...

oh, and lots of things.

Is that the post?

Oh, let it be

the gas bill.

Serves you jolly

well right if it is,

talking about

gas ovens.

Oh, thanks.

Have you left everything ready

for me outside, mrs. Porter?

Yes, ma'am.

Thank you.

Good night. Good night,

ma'am. Good night, sir.

Good night,

mrs. Porter.

Is it the income tax?

Em! Quick, look.


See this, em?

Now you can have

some real clothes.

Oh! My new dress!

Hurry up, old james,

you'll be late for the office.

You know, em, i always

got into the sea.

I hear it's a bit

rough in the channel.

Hello. We're off.

Come on, em.

Let's take a snap.

I say, em, i think i'll pop

down and get you some sick...

i mean, magazines.

Yeah, but...

oh, my god. The curtain's gone up too soon.


They're not dresse

i mean...

Let's get out of here.

I don't like it.

Why not?


just pinched me.


You know where.

You leave it to me.

So long, folks.

See you tomorrow.

What's in that

parcel, Fred?

For you.


I couldn't wear


People will think

we aren't married.

don't feel

a bit as if we are.

One of the sailors told me

it was a bit rough outside.


i heard that, too.

I say, em...

i think i'll go do

wn to the cabin

and, um, i mean,

you know...

to see if everything's

all right.

All right, Fred.

Oh, excuse me.

Oh, hello, commander.

How do you do,

miss emory?

Are we going to have

a lot of fun and mischief?

I hope so.

We're not off yet.

Just about that much.

It's a marvelous night,

isn't it?

Yes, isn't it?

Is your husband

feeling better?

Oh, yes,

he's much better.

He's really

a very good sailor,

but he's not

used to it.


Oh, commander gordon,

aren't you coming down?

We're all waiting

for you.

Do you mind if i have

one more pipe in peace?



You know, these bright

young people

make one feel

awfully old at times.

Oh, i like to keep them

enjoying themselves.

Come in.

How do we go now, sir?

Would you like to try

a little something?

Tell my wife.

She'll get me

a grave.

Very good, sir.

Here's another.

May i draw on this?


Yes. If you want to.

You're the crazies

t person, really.

Why do you say that?

I don't know.

You're delicious.

I could sit and listen

to you all the afternoon.

You're laughing at me.

No, no, i'm not,


Funny you should say that

because i always find it

so difficult to talk

to people.

Do you?


But not to you.

I find it quite easy...

much easier than i could

to my husband.

Do you know...

i see...

i beg your pardon.
