The most mysterious mystery is people...

and, in particular, those of them

that do not at all seem mysterious.

Take, for example, Miss Norris.

Here it is - an American middle-aged...

walking along London Street

on the eve of the New Year.

Put the damn lantern down!

- Sorry, mother.

- Mother!


Taxi! Area of Harcot.

This is my taxi.

"Give it to us, lady."

We're late for a New Year's party.

Sorry, but I'm also late.

I called this taxi first,

I'm on it and I'll go.

Keep yourself in hand. Do you think everything

is allowed to you? And us that, to go on foot.

And you think, no? Just because it's a

holiday? Keep your self in your hands!

And I do not need anyone here...

I'm going somewhere and I'll go there.

- Now get out of my taxi.

- Okay, your took.

Church of St. Andrews, Harcot Square.

- Good evening.

- Good evening.

"We did not expect you at all, sir."

I replaced Miss Ellenby.

- Can I go now?

- Good luck.

- Holiday greetings.

- Holiday greetings.

"Mr. Grave must be on duty

tonight, and I have more to do."

You do not know whether

he will come, or not?

- No idea.

- This is bad.

- Maybe, what happened to him?

- Sorry if I'm late.

And here is our American. I thought

today was the duty of Mr. Grave.

I replace it.

Do you two know each other?

It seems that we already

were on duty together once.

May be.

Well, I ran. Holiday greetings.

Holiday greetings.

And you, too, with the Coming, sir.

I remembered where we had met before.

And where?

A year ago, at 12 o'clock I

"Happy New Year,"...

and you said:


- Let's start from the roof.

- What do we start?

Inspection of our route.

Nonsense, I know this route.

Every volunteer on his route must

perform a full inspection...

check the equipment and everything else.

Do you think I'll climb the roof, which I

know just like the contents of my pockets?

I think that you must do the

work that you undertook.

Come along.

It's one thing to just watch, and climbing

the roofs - it's completely different.

The right way to move on the roof...

it's always hold on to the rope.

- Caution.

- I'll go here, and you go there.

- You dropped the flashlight last year.

- I never dropped a lantern.

If you want to wear it on a belt,

then at least tighten it better.

I do not want to be

reproached for incompetence.

I had to manage a military

plant with 150 employees.

- True? In America?

- Of course, why?

It was transformed from a cosmetic

plant by order of the government.

Your flashlight does not work at all.

Has earned.

An intolerable bore!

Where can I fall?

There's a roof edge somewhere.

I'll figure it out myself.

He wants to make me an idiot.

Who are you talking to?

Itself with itself.

I guess you never do that.

Only not on duty.

And I do not go further

than 3 feet from the rope.

Are you going to teach me?

No, the presence of women is

unacceptable on such routes.

There's only one dangerous place,

and next to him I'll take the rope.

It is better not to take chances.

Follow me, slowly.

It's just impossible!

I do not need any incidents
