Do you smell it, sir?

They certainly made

a thorough job of it.

Aye, they did that,


- You'll probably find shovels

in one of the wagons.

- Yes, sir.


No! Don't touch me!

Go away!

Please! Please go away!

- We're not going to hurt you.

- Leave me alone!

- The Indians will come back and kill me too!

- There, lassie.

- Let me go!

- There, there.

You're perfectly safe now.

We won't let anyone harm you.

They'll come back!

I know they will!

They killed my grandfather.

He's over there under that wagon.

- Shh! Shh! Come on.

- No.

- Come on now. That's it.

- Please! Please!

Everything's going

to be all right.

Everything's going

to be all right.

There now, now.

Shh. Everything's

all right.

I'm afraid.

Now, listen, Sue.

You and I are going to have a little talk.

You know, there never was

anything to be afraid of...

that couldn't be cured

by one little word.

Do you know what

that word is?

" Courage.'' It can beat the toughest

situation that ever happened.

You see,

when you're afraid of things...

the more you think of'em,

the bigger they get.

But if you just throw

your head back and say...

" I won't be scared

of anything anymore,'' then you're not.

Aren't you ever afraid

of anything?

Well, uh,

let's put it this way:

When I meet up with something

I'm not quite sure of...

I decide first of all that everything's

going to come out all right.

Whatever it is,

I'm going to lick it.

And usually it does

come out all right.

- You know what does it?

- Courage?


Now, let's forget everything

that made us unhappy.

Let's learn to smile again,

because we know everybody's...

gonna do all they can to help us,

so we'll help too.

- What do you say?

- I'll try, Mr. Monty.

That's the girl.

Now, back to sleep.

- Good night.

- Good night.


Dismissed, Mac.

- Welcome home! Praise be you're safe and-

- Shh!

- What have you got there?

- Quiet. Quiet.

- Where in heaven's name did you get her?

- You'll hear about that later.

- Is the superintendent still up?

- He is.

- And if I told you the half of it-

- I can't escape it.

Give me a quick brush.

I want to report in.

Beggin' your pardon, sir.

You can't go in them clothes.

- I've your other uniform all laid out.

- Why should I change uniforms...

- at this time of night?

- The others, sir.

Every one of'em is dressed up like a widow

at a wake. If you knew who was there-

- I wouldn't dandy up tonight to meet Lily Langtry.

- But it's the O.C. 's daughter.

- Will you stop thatjabbering and brush me off?

- I'll do it!

- I'll do it. Please let me.

- Now look what you've done with your shouting.

You're the worst old fishwife

ever came out of County Kildare.

He's otherwise known as

Patrick O'Hannegan.

- This is Miss Susannah Sheldon.

-Just call me Sue.

Now, young lady, we'll have to arrange

sleeping quarters for you.

- Where will that be, sir?

- Your room.

- My-

- Do I sleep in with him?

No. Pat can sleep

out here on the couch.

But I wouldn't wanna take

Mr. Pat's room.

That's all right. He'll be very

comfortable out here, won't you?

- Oh, yes, sir. Very.

- Give this a lick.

Let's see.

What about sleeping things?

Use one of my nightshirts.

You might have to cut it down.

- Now, young lady, off to bed with you.

- Oh, wait.

There's a hair on your shoulder

the brush didn't get.

- Good night.

- Good night, Mr. Monty.

Come on.

I'll fix the bed for ya.

I'll help you.



- Excuse me, sir.

- That's quite all right, Monty.

- Glad to see you're back.

- I didn't mean to intrude, sir.

- I've come to make my report.

- Come in, won't you?

I want you to meet my daughter.

She's come out from Toronto for a visit.

Well, I'm-

I'm hardly presentable, sir.

Perfectly all right.

Come along.

- Look who's here.

- Hello, Monty.

- Hello, fellas.

- Hi, old boy.

Vicky, this is

Inspector Montague.

- I'm very happy to know you, Mr. Montague.

- It's a pleasure, Miss Standing.

Won't you join us?

Perhaps you'd like a glass of sherry.

- Not a thing, thanks.

- You'll need something to fortify you.

- We'll probably have more singing.

- If I know Monty...

- he'll be right along with us.

- He's just the baritone we've been looking for.

- We really are having a little baritone trouble.

- I say, now,just a moment.

I'll be glad to

as soon as I make my report.

- That won't take long.

- Excuse me?


- Doctor, do you mind getting my hat for me?

- Certainly.

- You're not going?

- What's left for me?

- It's baritone or nothing.

- Good night, old boy.

It's nothing.

Pat, you old pirate, why didn't you

tell me to change uniforms?

- Why, she's a beauty!

- Tell you? I did tell you.

You didn't tell me anything of the kind.

Those are the things you should tell me.

But you said you wouldn't

dandy up for Lily Langtry.

Lily Langtry couldn't hold a candle

to her. Get off these boots...

- and get me a clean shirt.

- Yes, sir.

- Come on.

- Yes, sir.

When did she get here?

You didn't even tell me she was young.

- Two days ago, sir.

- And I had to be away on patrol.

Why, she's beautiful.

She's as pretty as a picture.

What the-

Why aren't you in bed?

I'm helping, sir.

Here's your shirt.

00, and regulations

for enlisted men are lights-out at 10:00?

- Get.

- Yes, sir.

Good night.

Good night. Run along now.
