Wallace and Gromit in A Close Shave


(Deep rumbling)

Ba-a-a-a! Ba-a-a-a!


(Brrrrp! Brrrrp! Brrrrp!)

(Click! Click! Click!)

Porridge today, Gromit! Tuesday.






Huh? Oh!

Oh! Ow!

Calm dow... Turn it off!

(Splat! Splat! Splat!)

Aah! Ooh!

(Splurge! Splurge! Splurge!)

Mmmmff! Mmmm!


Um... Mice, do you think?


I think I'll make my own porridge.


Well, I'll be...!

Have you been peckish

during the night?

Only someone's been at me cheese.



(Wallace) Well, I don't know.

There's something

very fishy going on.


Huh?! Do you think we should

get the pest control people in?

(Phone rings)

Hello. Wallace and Gromit's

Wash'n'Go Window Cleaning Service.

May we be of assistance?

(Woman) 'Yes.

My windows need a jolly good clean.

'The wool shop in the High Street.

As soon as you can.'

On our way, madam!




Need wool, don't you, lad?

Thank you for coming so quickly.

Oh, dear!

Oh, allow me. Please.

(Wallace) Oh, I'm sorry!

I'll soon have these cleared up.

It's no trouble.

Oh, how embarrassing.

This is Preston, my dog.

All right, pooch?

(Wallace) Won't take a minute.

Well... I...

What was it you wanted?




Ramsbottom, Wendolene Ramsbottom.

Oh, charming.

I'm Wallace...the windows.

Is this place yours?

Mmm, my father left it to me.

Along with his debts...

and a few other things.

- He was an inventor.

- Never!

Well, I do a bit of that myself.


(Wallace) I see they still haven't

caught those sheep rustlers yet.

Still, you've got plenty of wool.

Your dog's waiting.

Aye, I'd better see to him.

The bounce has gone from his bungee.

Oh, they're spanking!

You've done a grand job.

Windows are our speciality.

(Front door opens)

(Wallace) Let's get that kettle on.

Good grief! What's all this?!

(Wallace) Burglars? Thieves?


Oh. What a mess!


I've never seen anything like it.

Heavens above, Gromit! Look at this!

The little chap

must be really hungry.

Come over here, lad.

No need to be sheepish.

We'll have to get you cleaned up.

There. Nothing to fret over.

Just a quick shampoo.

We've tested this on Gromit,

haven't we, lad?

Right! Off we go, then.

Baa! Baa! Baa! Baa!

(Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!)

(Wallace) Oh, 'eck!



Oh! Do something, Gromit!

(Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!)

Oh, it's too late now!

(Wallace) Oh!

Turn it off, Gromit! Oh! OH!

Oh! Oh, dear!

Oh, brilliant, Gromit!

Smashing, this!

A bit tight here and there.

(Muffled bleating)


Ah, he looks OK to me.

We'll call him "shorn", eh?

Come on, Sean!

(Grate squeaks)


Gromit? You know

we're doing the clock tomorrow?


Sorry, Gromit! That was a bit thick!

Back in a tick, Gromit.

Won't be long.

(Wallace) Just thought I'd pop in...

(Sean) Ba-a-a-a!

Tell me about windows.

Well, it's only temporary,

you understand.

Oh, really?

Oh, yes. I'm inventing, mostly.


What sort of inventions?

Well, sort of...

Daddy would love to have met you.

(Sighs) Poor Daddy.


Ba-a-a-a! Ba-a-a-a!

Of all the women I've met...

Not that there have been many,

you understand...



What I'm trying to say,

in a manner of speaking, is...


..of all the LADIES I've met.... Ooh!

(Wallace) Oh! Oo-ow!

Same time next week?





Ba-a-a-a! Ba-a-a-a!

Caught bang to rights you were.

You've really let us down

this time, lad.

- Hey, give over!

- (Doorbell rings)

Shoo! Shoo! Go on with you!
