IF YOU'VE NO RESPEC FOR THE DEAD,

AT LEAST HAVE SOME

FOR THE LIVING.

AND NOW YOUR:

SIGNATURE, PENN.

OH...

NO, NO,

JUST A MINUTE, PENN.

YOU MUST ASK THEM

TO WITNESS IT, YOU KNOW,

AT THE SAME TIME TELLING

THEM THAT THIS DOCUMENT IS

YOUR LAST WILL:

AND TESTAMENT.

OH, I... I FORGOT.

THE LAW IS MOST EXPLICIT,

ISN'T IT, MR. GAYLORD?

MR. KEITH,

MR. GIBBON...

THIS DOCUMEN IS MY WILL,

AND I WANT YOU TO

WITNESS MY SIGNATURE.

YES, SIR.

I HAVE ASKED YOU ALL

TO ASSEMBLE HERE...

NOT ONLY TO SAY:

GOOD-BYE TO YOU

BEFORE SAILING:

FOR FRANCE TONIGHT,

BUT TO TELL YOU HOW HAPPY

YOU'VE MADE MY LIFE HERE.

I SHALL NEVER FORGE YOUR KINDNESS...

YOUR LOYALTY...

YOUR DEVOTION.

MY GRANDFATHER:

BUILT THIS HOUSE.

HE BROUGHT HIS BRIDE HERE TO

LIVE IN IT, AS I DID AFTER HIM.

YOU, BENSON...

YES, SIR.

YOU WERE HERE:

IN MY FATHER'S DAY.

YES, SIR.

YOU KNOW HOW A GAYLORD

HOME IS EXPECTED TO BE RUN.

YES, SIR.

I DON'T KNOW WHEN

I SHALL COME BACK,

BUT WHEN I DO, I WAN TO WALK IN THE DOOR

AND FIND EVERYTHING

EXACTLY AS I LEFT IT.

FOR 3 GENERATIONS, A STANDARD OF

PERFECTION HAS BEEN MAINTAINED.

I EXPECT I TO CONTINUE...

INTO THE FOURTH:

GENERATION-

A GAYLORD HOUSE RUN

BY GAYLORD SERVANTS

IN THE GAYLORD:

MANNER.

THANK YOU, AND...

GOOD-BYE.

GOOD-BYE, SIR.

GOOD LUCK, SIR.

I DON'T NEED TO TELL YOU

TO BE A GOOD GIRL, SUSANNA.

YOU'RE ALWAYS A GOOD GIRL.

I SOMETIMES WONDER WHERE A

GAYLORD GOT SO MUCH GOODNESS.

EVELYN THE SECOND...

GROW UP AS BEAUTIFUL

AS YOUR MOTHER, DARLING,

AND YOU'LL BE A VERY

FORTUNATE LITTLE LADY, INDEED.

OH, SWEETHEART.

YOU MAY PUT EVELYN AND

SUSANNA TO BED, NURSE.

MISS FIONA?

SHE HAS TO STAY UP TO SEE

ME OFF AND TAKE THINGS OVER.

YES, SIR.

COME ALONG, DEAR.

YOU KNOW, FIONA, YOU'RE

THE HEAD OF THE HOUSE NOW.

THIS CALLS FOR A DRINK.

BENSON, A BOTTLE

OF PORT, PLEASE-

THE VINTAGE MY FATHER LAID

DOWN FOR ME THE DAY I WAS BORN.

YES, SIR.

AND TAKE MISS FIONA WITH

YOU TO THE WINE CELLAR.

MISS FIONA?

SHE'S THE HEAD

OF THE HOUSE NOW.

WHEN I WAS:

JUST ABOUT HER AGE,

MY FATHER WENT OFF TO

THE SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR,

AND I WENT DOWN TO

THE CELLAR WITH BENSON

FOR A BOTTLE OF PORT LAID DOWN

THE DAY MY FATHER WAS BORN...

ONLY I WAS A SON,

AND FIONA'S A DAUGHTER.

BUT SHE'S MY SON,

MR. VAN RENNSAELER.

SHE'S A GAYLORD,

THROUGH AND THROUGH.

THERE IT IS-1887.

NOW, MISS FIONA, WE'LL

LAY IT IN ITS CRADLE

AS GENTLY AS A BABY.

I'LL DO IT MYSELF.

GENTLY, NOW.

I KNOW.

IT'S A VINTAGE PORT,

AND A CRUST FORMS

INSIDE THE BOTTLE,

AND IF I SHAKE IT,

IT GETS INTO THE WINE.

SO I WON'T SHAKE IT.

A GAYLORD IF EVER

THERE WAS ONE...

AND A REDHEADED GAYLORD,

AT THAT!

IT'S NOT RED.

IT'S AUBURN.

THERE YOU ARE,

BENSON.

THANK YOU,

MISS FIONA.

TO YOU, MY DEAR,

AND TO ALL THOSE WHO DIED

SO BRAVELY WITH YOU...

AND TO ALL OF US WHO ARE

GOING TO AVENGE THOSE DEATHS.

AND TO YOU, PENN,

A SAFE VOYAGE:

AND A SAFE RETURN.

SAFETY ISN'T ENOUGH.

LET'S DRINK TO VICTORY.

EVEN THOUGH YOUR SAFETY

MEANS LITTLE TO YOU, PENN,

YOU'VE CERTAINLY LEF NO STONE UNTURNED

TO ASSURE THE SAFETY

OF YOUR LITTLE GIRLS.

THIS WILL IS AS:

INDESTRUCTIBLE AS TIME ITSELF.

GOOD NIGHT, MY DEAR.

GOOD NIGHT,

MR. VAN RENNSAELER.

I HOPE YOU'LL FIND TIME

TO CALL ON US.

IT WILL GIVE ME:

GREAT PLEASURE.

AND IF YOU SHOULD NEED ME,

YOU REMEMBER I'M TO TAKE

YOUR FATHER'S PLACE

WHILE HE'S GONE.

NO ONE COULD TAKE MY

FATHER'S PLACE... UNTIL I DO.

BUT THANK YOU JUST THE

SAME, MR. VAN RENNSAELER.

I TOLD YOU-

THIS IS MY SON.

WELL, GOOD-BYE, PENN.

GOOD-BYE, SIR,
