This is Hollywood,

land of stars and stories.

But our story does not take place here.

So we will now leave Hollywood

and go to Beverly Hills...

...where the stars live.

But our story

does not take place here either.

The people in our story

live not far away... a small town called Los Angeles.

It`s a nice little place

with plenty of climate...

...many fine public parks...

...full of playgrounds

and swimming pools.

And in one of these parks

is a pool with a very pretty teacher.

-Are you all ready?

Yes, Miss Glenn.

All right, let`s go then.

Come on.

Johnny, Michael, Lois...

...Jimmy, Billy, Julio.

What`s the matter, Julio?.

Don`t you want to dive?.

No, senorita, I do not like to do it.

But for you, I do it.


Oh, now, don`t laugh at Julio.

He did his best. Come on, Julio.

I`m sorry, senorita.

I wanna be good like you,

but I am bad like me.

You`ll be a good diver some day,

off the high board too.

I do not think so.

Won`t you try to learn?.

It`d make me very happy.

Then I will try.

It`s not very hard if you practice.

I`ll show you.

-Now, you watch me.

-Do you mind if I watch too?.

Not at all.

-l`d like to see you do a swan dive.

-All right.


There, Julio. See how easy it is

if you practice?.


Thank you.

-Now what are you going to do?.

-Go home.

-Class dismissed.

Goodbye, senorita.







-How would you like to have a dollar?. Hmm?.

-A dollar?. I do not know. I never had one.

Well, here`s the deal, Julio.

I want to find out some things

about your teacher.

She is very pretty.

She is very nice.

Once she takes us to her house on picnic

with ice cream.

She show us her cups,

she has many cups for loving.

-For loving?.

-Big silver cups with ears.

She win them

in swimming and diving.

-Uh, what`s her name?.

-Senorita Cynthia Glenn.


-Do you know where she lives?.

-Si, senor, with her uncle and aunt.

Well, where do they live?.

-Are you a policeman?.


-Are you a villain?.

-No. I`m a businessman.

Uh, where does Miss Glenn live?.

-Are you gonna do any badness to her?.


Then I will tell you.

She live 1 4422 Mariposa Avenue.



-Hello, Aunt Nona.

-Hello, dear.

Oh, dear.

Oh, I forgot it was so late.

I sat down to play Chopin,

one piece led to another.

But, darling,

dinner will be ready in just a jiffy.

Thank you, dear.

-Oh, Cynthia.

-Something`s happened.


Oh, I wanted you to have

such a nice, hot dinner.

You need one

after a day of such damp work...

...but something went wrong

with the gas range.


-The gas. It stopped coming out.

It was on, and then, pfft... was off.

-Aunt Nona, did you pay the bills?.

-Of course, I did-- Why, didn`t l?.

Oh, l`m sure I did.

Well, almost sure.

I know I deposited my annuity check.

So I must have plenty of money in the bank.

And anyway, dear, if I haven`t,

they always tell me.

Oh, that`s where that was.

I know I wrote checks for all the bills

and sent them off.

Yes, I distinctly remember

licking the stamps.


Oh, darling, l`ll go see

about dinner right away.

-lt`ll be cold, l`m afraid.

-Oh, that`s all right.

Oh, by the way, I think I found

a rather interesting headline...

...for Uncle Hoby`s collection.

Is he home?.

Uh-huh. In the study. He`s pasting away.

-Hello, mermaid. Have a good day?.


Got a pretty good headline for you.

-Yeah?. Ha, ha.
