HAVE FUN WATCHING :)

- MAY HAVE SOME ERRORS

& MISSING PARTS (...) DUE TO BAD AUDIO -

- Town Hall please.

- Very good, sir.

(CHURCH BELLS RINGING)

(OFFICE DISCUSSION)

- Yes, sir.

- My name is Lampton, Joe Lampton.

Ohh, yes you are coming to work here, aren't you ?

... One moment please.

Mr.Hoylake will see you right away.

Come in.

We didn't expect you till Monday.

Sit down.

We are not accustomed to such an excess of zeal.

But it's not exactly that Mr.Hoylake.

I'm not surprised that you wanted to leave Dufton as soon as possible.

You'll find big differences here, you know.

Not only work,

You'll meet a different class of people.

We pride ourselves on being civilized here in Warnley.

Dufton is not much of a place but ... we're not exactly savages there you know Mr.Hoylake.

You think not? ...Well, what did you come to see me about?

Well, I thought perhaps... you see I have to get fixed up in digs ...

You shouldn't have any difficulty.

- Soames,

- Yes, sir - You might come in. - Right, Mr. Hoylake.

You'll be working with Mr. Soames, Internal audit.

He's got dig somewhere near Top. Top's the fashionable district.

He's very comfortable, I beleive.

Come in.

Charles Soames, Joe Lampton. Lampton is the new man.

- How do you do?

- How do you do?

He hasn't got anywhere to live. Can you help him?

- I think so.

- I'll leave it to you then.

We'll have a longer session later on. I'll keep an hour on Monday morning for you.

This is it. And that's your desk.

Well, he didn't keep you long in the firing line.

Joe this is Mrs. Samson, better known as June.

This is Joe Lampton, greatest addition to Treasuries Department chain gang.

I think I'm going to enjoy my sentence.

I don't mind you enjoying, but you don't have to smack your lips so vigorously.

Hot tip Charles, dog in 2nd race tonight, interested?

No, but hold on a minute. Meet new boy Joe Lampton, Teddy Merrick.

God may help you. I got to run.

- Well Charles how about those reports ?

- Well...those Stampton reports now where did I put them?

Somewhere in ...

- Have you tried looking under your skirt?

- What do you mean?

You're sitting on them, love.

Ohh, really? (...) Seeing you.

- She belong to us?

- Where did you get that proprietorial plural?

I meant the Teasuries Department.

No, she's h. typist.

We have our own talent.

Now digs, Mabel would you get me an outside line.

No dear, it's not a personal call.

Look Mabel I don't wanna argue with you, just get me an outside line

or I will put a tuppence in your moral little slot next time I'm passing.

Constipated bitch, she think's she had shares in corporation.

Warnley 4-3-1-5

It's not for you lad.

But I can look, can't I ?

I guess there is no law against looking at women on street.

Hello, is that you Mrs.Thompson?

Charles Soames here. I was wondering if I might bring Mr.Lampton to see you?

Yeah, we'll be at the house long before that, thank you Mrs. Thompson.

That is as good as fixed and one of the best digs in Warnley too.

Is that what you really want ?

A clerk's dream; a girl with a Riviera tan and a Lagonda?

That's what I'm going to have.

Ha,ha... Come on, let's go.

Nobody ever goes to Dufton, they just pass trough it.

A sunday treat of fish and chips, wrapped in a greasy "News Of The World".

And chaps like me; prospect appetizing is yesterday's fish paste sandwich.

You know, I was a POW at least there was a limit to the time that you serve, but Dufton
