Turn the Key Softly (1953) Movie Script

Follow me.
Discharge. Over there.
Yes, miss.
Yes, miss.
Three pawn tickets for 1.67...
I remember this from when I arrived here.
This is the way they took
all my own things away.
This is where we get them back again,
we hope.
You have plenty of time yet. You'll be
discharged at 8:00, not one moment before.
Not one second after.
Yes, miss.
One dress, and under this...
I do wish you'd eaten something, Monica.
It's so cold. Not even a cup of tea?
I'd rather we get out and
have a real breakfast.
I feel like a dog, really I do.
You don't look too bad.
You're fond of dogs, dear.
It's me we're talking about, not dogs.
It's important how I look today.
I'm gonna get married.
Married, you?
Yes, me. Why not?
He wrote and said he'd wait if it
was six years instead of six months.
And he has.
Now you've got to check these lists.
You'll get back everything you had
when you came in.
You first, Quilliam.
One hat, one coat, one dress,
one under vest torn...
one pair of shoes, one pair of stockings...
Are you really getting married?
I hope you'll be very happy.
I'll tell you something else too.
He's meeting me outside.
I bet he's waiting for me outside right now.
You got a boy waiting for you?
Sign here, please.
And that must be the last time, Granny.
We like you here, but not
as a permanent boarder.
I'll try. I always do try.
Next, Jarvis.
One skirt, one blouse, one jacket,
one pair of shoes...
one pair of stockings, one handbag...
Here's your jewelry.
One watch, one initial broche "S"...
two bracelets, one necklace...
two rings.
If you do, if you don't,
if you will or if you won't...
Enough, Jarvis!
Your turn, Marsden.
I'll sign that receipt right away.
You'll check the list first.
It's laid down in the regulations.
I'm saying goodbye to regulations.
My, but it's nice to feel smart again.
It isn't until you see people
in their own clothes
you realize what you've been mixing with
in this place.
Can I help, Monica?
Just a moment.
We all came in here at different times,
why do we have to go out at the same time?
Because all your sentences
happen to end today.
I'd hardly have known you.
Nice bit of stuff. Are those real pearls?
A bit small, aren't they?
Well, you can't blow up
pearls up like balloons.
That's what I mean.
They must have cost a packet of money but
nobody would hardly know you was wearing any.
I'm sorry you don't approve.
Well, I've got a thing about jewelry.
Especially earrings.
What about our money from
the Discharged Prisoners' Aid Society?
One thing at a time.
Coming to you, Marsden.
No thanks.
Independent, eh?
Do you object?
Take anything that's going, that's my motto.
Brice, lead on.
Wait there.
The day's discharges.
I know, I know.
No need to be so regimental about it.
Have you got the list?
Three. Jarvis, Quilliam, Marsden.
I hand them over to you officially.
Anyone would think we
was registered letters.
I am looking forward to tonight,
aren't you, Stella?
What are you talking about?
Well, you know as well as I do.
Going to the Monte Christo.
Some people don't get asked.
Sorry, Stella. Would you like to come?
Oh, I don't know. I can't promise.
I've got to see what arrangements
my fianc has made.
Quiet, you women.
Easy, easy. They're only a bit excited.
After all, I'm the first man they've seen
since they went inside.
This way.
There you are, ladies. London.
The biggest city in the world,
and it's all yours.
There he is! There's Bob!
She is being met.
You're as bad as I am.
You didn't really believe it.
Think he's gonna marry her?
You know what she is.
I know what she was.
Bob, why have you got your uniform on?
I've got to go on duty.
When you've had something to eat.
All right, then. Come on.
She's not going to introduce us.
I know her sort. Ashamed of him
because he's in the Salvation Army.
No. He's a bus conductor.
I wish you had a nice young man to meet you.
I don't know any nice young men.
Come on.
A copper. He's sure to know
where we've come from.
Nonsense. Anyway, we're free now.
Oh, dear, I made you miss it. Never mind.
There will be another one along any minute.
I should be all right when
I get to Shepherd's Bush.
And when I do get there,
there will be somebody waiting for me.
Someone very special?
Why don't you bring him along tonight?
Do you mean it?
Oh, it would be a treat for him.
I've always wanted to see inside
one of them posh places, Johnny and me.
He's watching us.
I tell you he's watching us.
He isn't even aware of us.
Then why is he following us?
I have experience.
He'll run us in before we know where
we are... Let's move down a bit.
I'm sorry, I didn't... Won't you take my seat?
Thank you.
Very kind of you, sir.
It's a pleasure.
You'll be all right now?
What did I tell you?
Don't forget to bring Johnny tonight.
I'll be there six o'clock on the dot.
Be good.
Be careful, dear.
Oh, this rush hour. Perfectly maddening.
Do you always travel on this line
at this hour of the morning?
Terrible people one meets
in the underground.
Yes, terrible.
Oh, I say, this isn't a
habit of mine, you know.
After all, we did speak in the train,
a sort of introduction.
You're a very attractive girl.
I'd like to take you out to dinner some evening.
This evening. Dinner and a show, hm?
Get on, Archie!
You know the Belvedere on Whiteman Street.
Come right into the bar, you'll find me there.
You may be there. I shan't.
Oh, yes you will.
It's a date then. Six o'clock at the Belvedere.
Oh, I almost forgot.
The name's Jenkins. You can call me George.
Thank you.
What's your name?
Oh, I ought to have guessed it.
Suits you right down to the ground.
I was afraid I'd have to push off to the office
before you got here.
Well, let's have a look at you.
Not as bad as I expected.
Was it awful?
Don't let's talk about it.
It's over and finished. Done with.
Can't believe it yet, but I'm free.
I'm hungry, too.
I saved you an egg and some bacon.
Don't be too good to me. I'm not used to it.
I'm afraid you'll have to get your own breakfast.
I've got to fly.
Anything you want me to get you?
Shall we meet for lunch?
No, thanks. I'm going out job-hunting.
Borrow anything of mine you need.
By the way, are you all right for money?
Stop mothering me. You'll make me cry in a minute.
I can manage if you'll let me stay
for a week or two.
Of course. As long as you like.
Any messages for me?
Forget him, Monica.
I don't want to interfere, you know that.
But remember you're still young.
There are plenty of decent men in the world.
You never knew what really happened,
did you?
When I first met David I thought
he was perfectly honest.
By the time I discovered he wasn't
I was too much in love with him.
I begged him to go straight.
One night he persuaded me to go
on a job with him.
We were discovered. He ran away and left me.
I was caught.
What a fool I was.
You warned me often enough.
Well, nobody listens to anything when they're in love.
Kettle's on. Everything is ready.
I must go.
See you tonight.
Don't worry if I'm a bit late.
I may be a little bit late myself.
You're not going to look for...
That's all right.
I'm having dinner with an old lady.
Why not join us?
Sorry. Too much work to do.
Well, have a good time.
Oh, cigarettes on the table.
All for you.
Bob, look at it, look at it!
What's so special about Trafalgar Square?
Good old Nelson.
What are you going to do?
Give him a wash and a brush up?
Of course it isn't Piccadilly.
No. Come on.
Sure you don't want anything else?
No, thanks.
Bob, when do we get married?
Next Wednesday suit you?
Oh, any time you like.
You see, next Wednesday I can get the day off.
The question is where you're going
to stay until then.
Oh, but I thought...
Look, I want you to get a room on your own.
But not up here, mind.
You think I'm weak, don't you?
No, Stella, I wouldn't say weak.
Just a little wobbly at times.
Not anymore. Not since I met you.
I never met a chap like you before.
It makes a difference, you know?
I'm going to be a real good wife to you, Bob.
If anyone's lucky it's me.
Tell you where you can get a nice room.
Cheap and respectable, too.
Don't tell me you've never heard of Canonbury.
I suppose I must have.
Where is it?
Well, it's not in the jungle.
One of the most respectable parts of London.
Get an underground on Essex Road
or take the 38 bus.
Oh, I know the 38 bus.
It goes down Shaftsbury Avenue and along Piccadilly.
Look. Here's the address.
31, Alcyon Road.
Of course, you have to put the money down.
How much have you got?
Oh, I'll be all right.
How much have you got?
About a quid.
Bob! Three!
Three quid!
Well, you have to feed yourself until next week
as well as pay the rent.
After that you're my official responsibility.
Oh, Bob, you are good.
No, I'm not.
Yes, you are.
Shall I come round
to your digs this evening?
Oh, you'd better not.
My landlady's pretty strict.
Tell you what.
See you when I come off duty.
Okay, what time?
Half past seven?
Outside Swan and Ekers?
Here's the first of your wedding presents.
Hello, Toots. I've missed you.
Did you have a nice time in the Riviera?
Lovely! Couldn't bear to tear meself away
from all them dukes and millionaires.
I bet you looked smashing in your bikini.
Yes, all covered in goose pimples.
Come on in.
Oh, I don't know.
Oh, come on.
When did you get out?
This morning. I'm on me way home now.
How about a little bit of something
to be going home with?
What's the price of the rabbit?
Two bob a pound. I'd be ashamed to sell it to you.
Never you mind rabbit.
What you need is feeding up.
Have you seen Johnny lately?
He's been about most days.
Looks fine to me.
I do hope he hasn't forgotten me.
Not him.
Now, how about a nice bit of stewing steak?
Here you are. Eight ounces.
Ten pence eight to you, madam.
And don't give it all to Johnny.
Oh, it's you.
I did write.
Please, can I have me old room back?
Well, some people'd say I was a fool
to have you back.
I never took anything from here.
Oh, no, I'll say that for you.
But some people'd say I was letting
the neighborhood down.
Well, you better come on in.
The humiliation! Seeing this address,
my address in the papers.
Besides, as though it was the first time.
Fifteen previous convictions and all for shoplifting.
And don't try to attempt and deny it.
I read it meself in the papers with me own eyes.
So silly too. It's not as though you'd ever taken
anything of value, like furs and jewelry.
Oh, no. That would be stealing.
Well, I'm taking you back on one condition, see?
That you keep out of trouble.
Never again. Do you understand?
This is a respectable house.
I do want to thank you for looking after Johnny.
I'll save up and pay you back.
We're all very fond of Johnny.
I suppose he isn't about anywhere?
Well, he's out, but he'll be back.
You know how he is.
Aw, here's your key.
Your stove's ready to light.
Mrs. Quilliam, he's here!
Johnny! Johnny! Come!
Oh, lovely boy.
Yes, Johnny, it's me, it's really me.
And I'm never gonna leave you again.
Never, never, never.
Oh, Johnny. Oh...
Good boy.
Oh, thinking of food already?
Oh, Johnny.
See you tonight at half past seven, okay?
Don't forget. All the way down to Essex Road.
Better get on your way.
Office work?
That's not easy in a case like yours.
It would be much simpler to fix you up in domestic work.
Or in hospitals or institutions...
I'd sooner have office work.
Shorthand and typing?
Yes. Both still pretty good, I think.
There are one or two vacancies.
Of course you've no stamps
on your insurance card.
That'll give you away, you know.
Do you think I should tell them the truth?
That's up to you.
But sooner or later they're sure to find out.
I'll have to chance it.
They'll ask questions, you know.
Awkward questions.
And you have no references?
Why not?
It's some time since I was employed.
May I see your insurance card?
Thank you.
No stamps.
No, it's been franked at the employment exchange.
So I see. Why? Have you been in hospital,
Ms. Marsden?
No, in prison.
In prison?
May I ask the reason?
I was convicted for burglary.
You mean you stole.
You've been very frank with me, Ms. Marsden.
I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed
our little chat.
I don't think anyone could accuse me
of not being a tolerant man.
But unfortunately I happen to be in business.
if there is any other way in which
I can help you...
please give me a ring.
Good morning.
One for me and one for you.
One for me and one for you.
One for me and one for...
two for you.
'Cause you need it, don't you, Johnny?
One for me and one for you.
And one over.
Oh, Johnny, I'm ashamed of you.
We can't abet shocking behavior tonight.
Come on.
Oh, Johnny!
Johnny, I'm gonna take you out.
First we're gonna see Lily, my daughter Lily.
And then tonight I'm gonna take you
up to the West End.
And there's going to be a party.
Monica invited you special.
You'll like Monica, Johnny.
She's a nice kind-hearted girl.
Yes, I said by the end of the week.
Mr. Gregory will see you now.
I don't care what they say.
I must have them on time.
Come in.
Seventeen on Monday
and the rest by the end of the week, understand?
Sit down, please.
I'll stand, thank you.
Yes, I've been in prison.
I know...
I uh...
Well, it's very difficult.
Yes, of course, what did you think I meant?
I said by the end of the week.
Yes, very well.
Yes, I know all about you, Ms. Marsden.
The Welfare Office phoned me.
I'm ready to take a chance.
Can you start on Monday?
Ms. Dawson, I'm sending a Ms. Marsden
in to see you.
Fix her up to start on Monday.
How did you know I'd be here?
Just a guess, Monica.
What do you want?
To see you, of course.
I don't want to see you, David.
Can't we go inside. I have so much to talk about.
You have? But I'm not interested.
Understand once and for all,
I'm finished with you.
I know how you feel.
You know how I feel!
Take it easy.
I've taken it hard for twelve months,
thanks to you.
Do you know the police asked me
all sorts of questions?
I'd have only to open my mouth
and you would have got what I got.
I know. You were wonderful.
And you were a louse.
Let's go out. We can't talk here.
I'm going inside. There's nothing to talk about.
Don't be a stubborn idiot.
There's plenty to talk about
and you know it.
Come have lunch with me.
Very well.
Wait for me here.
Hello, Stella!
Hello, Marie!
I've just been to the pictures.
You look wonderful, chrie.
Not so good as you.
Come and see the girls?
It's their lunch hour.
Oh, no, I can't.
I have to go out to Canonbury.
Canonbury? I know what you need.
A drink.
No, I can't.
That's what I call a bargain.
Six guineas, straight from New York.
They're worth it, too.
Here you are, Stella.
Talking of value of money,
I reckon I did pretty well with these.
No offense, dear,
but isn't this a bit out of season?
Give her a chance, can't you?
She only got out this morning.
Have a cigarette, Stella.
And cheer up, Stella.
You'll be seeing the money again.
And don't ask me to give you an intro
to the guy who gave me this.
What makes you think I want an intro to anyone?
I am getting married next week.
Married? Don't make me laugh.
I am. You won't be seeing me around
any more, ladies.
Who is he?
No one you know.
Come off it, Stella. You know as well as I do.
Those fellas they kid you.
Not this one. He's on the level.
He's a man, isn't he?
Having you teach me about men.
They're all the same.
Not Bob.
What's he in? Oil or goldmines?
Transport. We're going to live in Canonbury.
Well, if he going to marry you, chrie,
then it is different.
You bet it is.
I'm going to have a home, see?
It's wonderful being with you again, darling.
Just looking at you.
Still the same, David.
What do you mean?
You still think you can twist me
around your little finger, don't you?
It came to an end twelve months ago.
Did it?
Not with me.
Charming and smooth as ever.
What a terrible thing to say?
I've learned a lot worse in the last twelve months.
By the way, what about those clothes of yours?
Do you think I've pawned them?
Or given them away to some other girl.
There is no other girl, Monica.
Like it?
Do you really think you're going to get
round me like this?
Do you like this flat?
Let me take your coat.
No, thanks, I'm not staying.
Where are my things?
In the wardrobe, in there.
I'll get them.
Remember the first time you wore that dress?
Please don't give any of that Auld Lang Syne stuff.
The past as far as you're concerned
is dead and buried.
How do you like selling cars?
It's a job.
Is it difficult to get?
Not very.
Oh, of course. You haven't been in prison.
Why are you so bitter?
Do you really want me to tell you?
I've been locked up for twelve months.
You were free.
It wasn't the judge or the jury
who did that to me, it was you.
You didn't care what happened to me
as long as you saved your own skin.
That's not fair and it's not true.
Of course I cared.
How much? Not even enough to stand by me.
Supposing I had stood by you?
Supposing the police had got me too...
Would you have been better off?
I'm a jailbird.
I've got a record, thanks to you.
Now I've got to live that down and start again.
Before I met you I never did anything
against the law.
So I'm a corruptor of innocents.
I had no idea what you were
when I let myself get fond of you.
Now I look at you and I wonder why.
There must have been a reason.
There was. My own stupidity.
I believed in you.
Believed in the look in your eyes
when you were being nice.
And believed it meant
that you really loved me.
That's what it did mean.
No, it was just a give-me look...
like a greedy little boy saying give me
what I want and give it quick.
We had some good times together.
You did.
And you?
Don't tell me you didn't get any pleasure out of it.
You didn't complain at the time.
Always the perfect gentleman.
I'm sorry, Monica.
Don't let's quarrel.
Call me a cad, if you like.
But I did love you.
And I do.
Not enough to visit me in prison.
For a whole year, not a word.
Not a letter, nothing.
Just because I did love you.
Because I wanted us to have a fresh start
when you came out.
That's why I got a job.
That's why I didn't come
and see you outright.
I knew if I did the police might get
a line on me too and if they did...
there wouldn't be a chance for either of us.
Now, of course, you hate me.
You wanted something?
Yes, how much are these?
One and six a bunch.
The prices nowadays.
I'm afraid we have nothing cheaper.
I remember when they
wouldn't have had the nerve...
...to ask more than two-pence
for a bunch like this.
The good old days.
Yes, and they was good old days, too.
Looks a bit measly.
You wouldn't let me have
two for two and six?
Only fixed prices here, madam.
Oh, all right.
Here we are, Johnny.
Nice, isn't it?
Lily's done all right for herself.
Ma, look who's here!
Come and see!
Hello, Granny.
Hello, Norma.
My, I shouldn't have known you.
You have grown.
Hello, Johnny. Hello, boy.
It's a long time
since you came to see us, Granny.
Yes, I suppose it is.
Have you been to the seaside all this time?
Yes, what is it?
Hello, Lily.
Oh, you didn't tell me you were coming.
Well, I only come out this morning.
You ought to have written first.
I know, I'm sorry.
I brought these for you.
Oh, thanks.
Pity you had your journey for nothing.
We're just going out, as you can see.
Can't put it off. It's a tea party.
Very important.
Oh, mom, can't Granny come
to the pictures with us?
No, dear, you see, I've got Johnny with me.
Norma, that dog's feet are
all covered with mud!
Brush your coat down.
Don't let him come near you again.
Oh, Granny, it's the nameplate on
Johnny's collar. It's come off.
Oh, never mind, dear.
I'll let you know when it's convenient
for you to call.
Or better still. Are you back
at the same place? Yes.
All right. I'll look you up there.
I'll send you a postcard to tell you when.
Goodbye for now.
Come on, Norma.
Mama, I want to say goodbye to Granny!
Come on, we're late!
Goodbye, dear.
Happy, darling?
What were you thinking about?
An old girl I made friends with in prison.
I'd forget all about prison if I were you.
It's easy to say.
I know.
But take my advice. Forget the past.
We're together again now.
The bad times are over.
For a whole year, day and night,
all I could think of...
was warmth, and food...
and love.
Did you ever doubt that I loved you?
Now we're together again for good.
No, David, I love you but it won't work.
I've had a year of nights to think it out.
I've got to be on my own.
You're not serious, darling.
I know how you must have felt.
But you're back now a very different woman.
Getting the color back on your cheeks.
If you like, we'll leave London for a bit.
No, David, you go where you want,
but leave me out of it.
Darling, I love you.
You do?
What's the time?
About five o'clock
I must go.
I've got a date.
Who with?
The old girl.
I'm meeting her at the Monte Christo at six.
Cancel it.
Oh, I can't. I promised her and she is so
looking forward to it.
I thought this was going to be our night.
I got a couple of seats for the theater.
On the circle, it's all I could get.
My party won't take long.
Give me my ticket and I'll meet you there.
If I take you to the theater, I take you.
I'll pick you up at twenty past seven.
From Paris.
Back from Canonbury?
Hello, Marie.
How do you like my new earrings?
Did your boyfriend give them to you?
What's the matter, chrie?
Something wrong?
I've just done something awful.
Why must you worry from character?
Lend me three quid, Marie.
No, Stella. I work for my old age.
And you, you get off to Canonbury
before it's too late.
Oh, there you are, Stella.
Is Monica not here yet?
She won't be late. This is Johnny.
She is standing treat, isn't she?
She invited us.
I'm sure she won't expect you to pay.
Well, I'm a bit short of cash at the moment.
I suppose you could lend...
Ah, there's Monica.
Hope I haven't kept you waiting.
You do look nice.
I'm glad you could come.
I managed to make it after all.
Didn't want to disappoint you.
You didn't say we were dressing. I'm sorry.
I didn't know I'd be going on to the theater.
You won't be cold, dear, will you, now?
I've heard a lot about you.
Oh, you're lovely.
I thought you two'd take a shine
for each other.
I hate to interrupt a love scene,
but I'm hungry.
Well, let's go in then, shall we?
May I?
Yes, he'll be all right with you.
Come on, Johnny.
Thank you.
It's all right.
Is everything all right?
Oh, it's gorgeous.
It's the one word for it: gorgeous.
I ordered chicken.
Do eat, or it will get cold.
It looks lovely.
Such a lot, too.
Shall I bring the wine now, madam?
Please, yes.
Monica, you shouldn't.
It'll cost you ever so much.
What does it matter for once?
What lovely earrings, Stella.
Blue hearts.
Yes, they're real sapphires.
Quite a novelty.
Unique in fact.
Did you fix yourself up, dear?
Everything's wonderful. I've a roof over
my head and I start work on Monday.
There. Oh, I am glad.
Johnny, manners!
Would he like some veal?
No, he's not hungry.
He might like a drink, though.
It wouldn't be right to use the crockery.
Though I daresay Johnny
is cleaner than some...
Champagne, madam?
Thank you.
Oh, bubbly!
Champagne. is it? Is it really?
It's all right, Johnny. Quiet, boy.
Here's to the old school.
I'm going to drink to your health, Monica.
And I want to thank you for giving us
this lovely evening.
I shall never forget it, never.
Ever since I've known you
you've been a good friend to me.
And that's something a lot of people
don't bother about with old folks like me.
Thank you, dear.
And I want to wish you every happiness,
Now and always.
And I hope you find
somebody to look after you.
'Cause you deserve it.
See you again soon.
I hope so too, dear.
I've had the best time of my life.
Bye, Johnny.
Come on, darling. I've got the taxi waiting.
Sorry to break out the party, ladies.
Goodbye, Stella.
What a nice young man.
A souvenir.
Look after yourself.
Stella! Wait a minute!
What's biting you?
Oh, go away. You're not Stella.
Yes, I am!
Aren't I?
Now what do you mean by bawling my name out
right in the middle of the street?
But I made a date with her at the Belvedere
and she didn't turn up.
I waited an hour. Had a few drinks...
and then who do I see
but Stella in the taxi.
I tell you, I'm Stella.
Well, if you are, then why didn't
you show up at the Belvedere?
Come along and I'll tell you.
Well, I never.
This is no place for us, Johnny.
A small gin, please.
And a ginger ale in a separate glass,
if you don't mind.
Come on, lad!
Good boy, Johnny.
There! Run along, then.
Come on, come on.
Come along, you lonesome fellow.
Do me a favor. Drink that gin up.
I haven't the face to march in
and ask for ginger ale and nothing else.
There's plenty as would.
Not me.
I've been to a party. Champagne.
Champagne's very nice
but it leaves you as thirsty as ever.
That's why I only want this now.
I can see you've been celebrating.
Your orchid.
Oh, is that what it is?
Johnny, I've got an orchid.
Popular, ain't he?
Always was.
Pour me one, Betty.
Excuse me.
Johnny, where are you?
Thought you'd gone.
Has anyone seen Johnny?
The dog's just gone out.
Yes, just as I was coming in.
But he doesn't know his way around here.
He'll be lost.
He's got no name on his collar.
Johnny! Johnny!
What are you up to?
You're on a job!
Shut up!
Open the door.
If you don't open this door,
I'll bang it until somebody comes.
Go ahead. Bang on the door,
scream and shout, and then what?
Don't forget you only came out of prison
this morning.
You're not going to bang on the door,
so why discuss it?
Do you want to give the whole show away?
You had it all planned, didn't you?
Even to making love to me this afternoon.
No one can say you were slow
in making up for lost time.
Please, David, let me go.
I've got a chance now. I've got a job.
I've got something to look forward to.
Don't be silly.
Please. You have to put this on you.
You can be seen from the street.
You would dress, wouldn't you?
See that window? It's over the restaurant.
There's money there. Lots of it.
Enough to clear out of the country
and make a fresh start.
The two of us.
That's what you want, isn't it?
I love you, Monica, and I need you.
And you need me too.
I hate you.
As soon as I'm on that catwalk,
pull this ladder up.
I don't want it hanging there
while I'm working on the safe.
As soon as you see me coming back again,
let it down.
Standard, yes.
Have you seen a little dog anywhere?
The night is full of dogs, mam,
most of them stray.
No, mam. Sorry.
I haven't seen your dog.
Have another one.
No, no, no.
Oh, go on, just one more.
Come on!
I shouldn't have had that last drink.
I'll be all right when
I've had a little sleep.
Come on!
There's one thing I don't
like about you, Stella. Oh?
What's that?
Those earrings.
The Stella I met this morning wasn't wearing
terrible things like that.
Get yourself another pair.
What's the price of a pair of earrings?
Decent earrings, hm?
Three quid.
Here, what you call a little present.
Good night.
Bob, I am glad you waited.
Why, what's the matter?
You fixed a room?
I haven't been down to Canonbury yet.
You've been up here all day?
Oh, Bob, it's all right.
I haven't done anything wrong.
I've still got that money you gave me.
Bob, let's go out to Canonbury now.
You really sure you want to come, Stella?
Yes, I do. Honest I do.
Oh, Johnny, Johnny.
Please, may I ask you a question?
It's your right, madam.
My privilege to answer.
Have you seen a little dog anywhere?
I've lost him.
I don't think so, madam. What's he like?
He's black and white, not very big.
I've lost him and I've
searched everywhere for him.
He'll be so tired and so frightened.
It's all my fault.
He's such a beautiful little dog.
His name's...
Look out!
...Three, discharged...
Jarvis, Quilliam, Marsden...
There you are, ladies, London.
The biggest city in the world
and it's all yours.
I'm gonna get married.
Have you got a boy waiting for you?
Marsden, Marsden... And now I want to
wish you every happiness, Monica...
and I hope you find someone
to look after you.
Did you ever doubt that I loved you?
Up here! There's a man up here!
Up here!
Dial 999.
Tell them there's a man on the roof.
What's going on?
Up there, on the roof.
Beats me how he got up there.
Oh, it's done. I bet they're advertising
the show. Oh, yeah, all the coppers?
Cover the restaurant entrance.
He'll never make it.
What do you bet?
All right, down you come.
Can you put me on the roof?
Come on, break it up.
Put me on this canopy.
Get him out.
Tell him to get into that door.
Put me up onto the roof.
All right, take him down.
Poor devil.
He'll get what's coming to him, all right.
Serves him right, too.
How do you know?
Have you never done anything wrong?
Yeah, must have been killed outright.
She just started talking about her dog.
Said it was lost.
Suddenly she calls out "Johnny" and darts
across the road.
Couldn't stop her.
Johnny, come here.
Come on, Johnny.
