Bishops Wife The 1947 CD1
Hark! The herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconcile
Joyful, all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With th'angelic hosts proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem
Hark! The herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King
Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace
Hail the Son of Righteousness
Light and life to all He brings
Risen with healing in His wings
- This is very kind of you. - It's a privilege.
- Which way are you going? - Just over there. The Mutual building.
- My doctor's there. See, I have hopes. - Fine.
- I'm all right now. - Good luck to you.
Thank you so much. Merry Christmas to you.
Mother, please! Please lift me up!
All right. Just for a minute.
Look at that, Mom!
Look at the funny choo-choo train!
Come on, darling. We have to go.
Oh, my baby!
You saved her! Thank God, you saved my baby!
- How can I ever thank you? - Just don't let it happen again.
- I promise you, I won't. - Remember that. Now on your way.
Mostly resembles its cousin, the California red fir.
His botanical head is similar.
Pay me heed. This is a specimen of the white fir.
Surely, you being a native Roman know your Latin.
You wanna buy or not?
- If it isn't my dear, beautiful Julia. - Hello, Professor.
What are you doing in this part of town?
Buying a Christmas tree. Hello, Mr. Maggenti.
- Mrs. Brougham, how do you do? - What do you charge for this weed?
- $1.85. - For this halfhearted twig?
I'll pay you 10 cents a branch or take my trade elsewhere.
- What can I do for you? - You can save me that tree outside.
- The big one by the door. - Okay.
- Thank you. - Each Christmas for the past 18 years...
Maggenti and I have been reenacting the same argument.
I didn't know you celebrated Christmas.
- I thought you had no religion. - That's true, my dear.
But I like having a Christmas tree because it reminds me of my childhood.
I feel that this is a good time for looking backwards.
Can you imagine me ever having been a child?
How's Henry? I haven't seen him lately.
He's well, thank you.
He's terribly tired and worried.
Is he having difficulty raising money for the cathedral?
Yes. It's slow work.
- How's your book coming? - Splendidly.
Greatest history of Rome since Gibbon.
Of course, nobody will read it.
And now, my good man, I choose not to prolong this bickering any further.
All right. Ten cents a branch.
- It's $1.40. - Very well, my old friend.
Here is your blood money.
Will you send the tree up on Christmas Eve? But not until late.
- I don't want my daughter seeing it. - Don't worry.
I'll send it when the little bambino goes to bed.
There's something I'd like you to give Henry for his cathedral fund.
That's my lucky piece.
Not that it's brought me any luck, except knowing you.
It's an old Roman coin. I picked it up years ago in a junk shop.
It has little value.
- It's a wonderful contribution. - Nonsense.
It might be called the widow's might...
if it weren't for the fact that I'm not a widow.
Julia, this is no occasion for tears.
It stopped snowing.
If only we could spend Christmas here where we were so happy...
with you and our friends.
- Good night. I'll see you again soon. - It can't be soon enough.
Good night, Julia.
Professor! How fine to see you again after all these years!
- How well you look. - How are you?
- Never better. And you? - Quite well, thank you.
- I don't think you remember me. - Preposterous! Of course I do.
- Where did we meet? - Professor, after all these years.
Just a moment. It wasn't Vienna, was it?
- Beautiful, old Vienna. - The university?
- The university. - When I lectured on Roman history.
That's it. And what great lectures they were.
- And what you were with the ladies! - Fancy, you remembering that.
I must confess, I had my moments.
And still have.
- Where are you going? - That car!
I couldn't help noticing your tender parting from Julia.
- Do you know Julia? - In a way, yes.
- Poor child. - She's unhappy?
- When were you in Vienna? - I've been there many times.
I'm interested in Julia and Henry.
- What seems to be their trouble? - I never see Henry anymore.
He has no time for riffraff like me.
He now consults with the vulgar rich, like Mrs. Hamilton.
You know, she had me fired from the university here?
Said I was a radical. I, who've never taken any interest in politics...
since the death of Nero.
Look at that.
Henry's old church, perishing from neglect. "Benefit - help save St. Timothy's"
- It's such a nice, little church. - Too little, I'm afraid.
It can't stand up against the march of progress.
I must be pushing on.
- Delighted to have seen you. - It's a pleasure.
- We must get together and have a drink. - By all means!
- Good evening, Professor. - Pat.
Have you any idea who that man is?
No. He's a stranger to me.
- Good evening, Mrs. Brougham. - Good evening, Matilda.
Hello, Queenie. Is Debby in bed yet?
Yes. Mrs. Hamilton and the committee are in there with the bishop.
The dinner's been waiting a long time. I don't know what to do about it.
We'll have dinner as soon as they leave.
- What about the chicken... - Don't worry about it, please.
Here. Thank you.
There. Thank you.
I'm very displeased with your whole attitude.
I'm terribly sorry I'm so late.
Good evening, Mrs. Hamilton. I was delayed Christmas shopping.
Good evening, Mr. Perry, Mrs. Trumbuss.
Hello, Mrs. Ward.
I hope you've been having a good meeting.
We have not. I've never encountered such fuzzy thinking.
- Do you think we've made progress? - No, Mrs. Hamilton.
Mr. Perry was about to tell us something.
Merely a suggestion. If you approve...
we can place the George B. Hamilton chapel here on the northeast.
It'd be out of sight. I won't stand for it.
This cathedral can't be designed for the glory of an individual.
It has to be created for all the people.
I'm displeased at your whole attitude.
You forget I was instrumental in having you made bishop...
although I thought you too young.
- Is that an exaggeration? - Oh, yes...
- I mean, no. - You were the guiding spirit.
- I distinctly remember... - I had every confidence in you...
when you were a poor parson in the church in the slums.
I confess, my confidence is weakened.
I regret I've been such a disappointment.
Regrets and apologies are no good.
You give the impression of being indecisive and ineffectual.
That is not the kind of leadership we expect of our bishop.
You better remember one thing: You'll build that cathedral as I want it...
or you'll not build it at all.
That's all I have to say.
Someone get this dog out of the way.
- Good evening. - Good night.
- Can we serve dinner now? - Yes.
- The chicken will be burned to a crisp. - We'll be right in.
You knew they were expected here for the meeting this afternoon.
- I know. I'm sorry I was late. - What a ghastly afternoon.
What a ghastly woman.
I trust she understood I've no intention of being strangled by her purse strings.
- She did. I was proud of you. - I had a most unchristian impulse...
to take those blueprints and give her a good whack over the...
I thought you stood up to her magnificently.
I appreciate your appreciation, but what about my cathedral?
May I make a suggestion? Postpone the cathedral.
- Forget about it until after Christmas. - A house of God can't be put off.
This cathedral must rise. There are other rich people in this town...
and if I have to enlist their financial enthusiasm...
then I'll take advantage of their yuletide spirit.
I can see it all now.
Those people, the luncheons, committee meetings and you there, flattering them.
- Kowtowing and begging them. - It's got to be done.
If you could see your poor, harassed face.
- You haven't done much to help it! - Why... Yes, Miss Cassaway? What is it?
Mr. Trevor on the phone. He says it's urgent.
- Tell him the bishop will call him back. - Yes, Mrs. Brougham.
What's happened to you? What's happened to us and our marriage?
We used to have such fun, you, Debby and I.
We used to be happy. We used to make other people happy.
That was your gift. You're no financier and you're not a promoter.
You can't see beyond your nose. I want this cathedral to stand...
like a great beacon, it's light shining...
Never mind, Henry. Keep that for your next committee meeting.
Here's a contribution I collected.
- What's that? - An old Roman coin.
Professor Wutheridge sent it to you. Wasn't it sweet of him?
Old fool. What can I do with that?
Well. It's a beginning.
- All you need is another four million. - Don't be flippant about this!
- Is dinner ready? - Yes.
Let's get it over with. I have a lot of work to do.
For what we're about to receive, may the Lord make us truly thankful. Amen.
I was just thinking...
tomorrow, maybe we could go out together.
We'll just walk around the way we used to.
We could call on the professor.
Or go to the park and watch the skaters... that sort of thing.
Maybe we could have lunch together.
At Michel's. Remember that?
It's been years since we've been there.
Forgive me. I've been trying to explain to Mr. Trevor...
but he insists upon speaking to you personally, Bishop.
Excuse me, darling.
Keep the soup warm, please. The bishop's been called to the phone.
And tell Delia we'll be out for lunch tomorrow.
Of course, Mr. Trevor. Yes, but...
I appreciate your difficulties...
Very well. I'll be there. 10:30 tomorrow morning...
then we'll go on to the board meeting.
All right. Good-bye.
Put down Mr. Trevor's office at 10:30 tomorrow...
and the board meeting at the bankers' club at 11:00.
- Yes, sir. Tomorrow, Thursday. - You might as well go home now.
- There's a great deal of work to do. - You must be very tired.
Thank you. And don't forget, tomorrow you speak to the junior assembly.
- What time is that? - At lunch, 1:00.
Remember, you made the appointment over a month ago.
- Good night, Bishop. - Good night.
Oh, God. What am I to do?
Can't you help me? Can't you tell me?
Oh, God. Please help me.
- Good evening. - Good...
What can I do for you?
That isn't the question.
Well, what is?
What can I do for you?
I must ask you to telephone my secretary for an appointment.
- I'm in the middle of dinner. - I know, Henry.
Your soup will keep warm. You asked for help.
Who told you?
You're known to be a good man and you were heard.
I was instructed to come here in answer to your prayer.
- Who are you? - I'm an angel.
- I beg your pardon? - I'm an angel.
- No wings at the moment, but... - You're an angel?
I knew it. I've been working too hard.
I understand. It's hard to believe, even for you.
Of course, I'm not one of the more important angels.
I just happen to be assigned to this district temporarily.
You see, we're everywhere...
helping people who deserve to be...
to be helped.
As you walk through the streets of the city...
you may suddenly look into a strange face.
It may be the face of a murderer or it may be the face of an angel.
You're having problems with the building of this cathedral?
- Yes. - It's a fine cathedral.
It ought to look magnificent on top of Sanctuary Hill.
Well, Henry. Do you believe I am what I say I am?
Well, how can I?
- I've only got your word for it. - But you're a bishop.
You, of all people, can trust the word of an angel.
I'd like to.
What do you propose to do?
- Perform a miracle? - If necessary.
Why don't you? Why don't you create the cathedral with a wave of your hand?
You wouldn't want me to do that. How would you explain it?
- Well, I'd... - Tell the world an angel visited you?
You can't do that.
Is anything wrong? L...
I'm sorry. I didn't know that you had...
- Julia, if you don't mind. - How do you do, Julia?
I'm Dudley. Henry's engaged me to help him with his work.
You mean you're going to be his assistant?
That's it. I'm going to help Henry to rest and get some relaxation.
- That's what I've been praying for. - You too?
I'm so relieved.
Isn't it wonderful you found someone to help you.
- But... - Where do you come from?
- All around. - Yes, but where?
To tell you the truth, he says that he's an a...
I've been doing some social service work downtown.
And now you're going to be with Henry permanently?
For as long as may be necessary.
If you don't mind, I must talk to this gentleman alone.
I'll see you in a moment.
We were just having dinner. Won't you join us?
That's kind of you, but I've many things to do around town.
You understand, Henry. So many people making so many mistakes.
- Yes, I see. - Then we'll see you tomorrow?
- Oh, yes. Bright and early. - Good.
Whenever you're ready.
Good night, Dudley.
Good night, Julia.
You sure you're an angel?
I know it isn't easy, but you've got to take me on faith.
- But how long will it take? - Just long enough.
Until you can utter another prayer and say you have no further need of me.
Then I'll be gone and forgotten.
But Julia's waiting for you at the dining table.
You must go to her.
But I don't...
What's the rest of Dudley's name?
I don't know.
Are you nervous, dear?
- The bishop didn't eat his breakfast. - He took only his prune juice.
What's the matter? Is he sick?
He looked awful. He said he had a very bad, sleepless night.
Passing up a breakfast like that.
That just ain't normal.
Nobody expects him to be normal. He's a bishop.
- If I could get you something, sir? - No, thank you.
- Maybe just a cup of tea? - Nothing, thank you.
- Good morning. - Good morning, Bishop.
Did anything come in for the cathedral fund?
Mr. And Mrs. Ward, no contribution.
- Mrs. Wilmark, $15.00. - We had her down for $10,000.
There's a letter from her explaining that this year...
I know. Same letter they all write.
I put your personal mail on the desk. The rest I'm taking to the office.
I'll be there after the meetings.
I think there's someone at the door.
Good morning. I'm Dudley, the bishop's new assistant.
Good morning. It's a wonderful morning.
I'm a little late, but I stopped to chat...
with a traffic policeman who was worried about his wife.
Oh, thank you, dear.
So I directed traffic while he telephoned the hospital.
- I see. - She's doing fine. So is the baby.
Why, you must be Mildred Cassaway. How do you do?
- We're going to be working together. - That's very nice.
- Thank you very much. - See you later.
Well, ready for duty.
Completely at your service.
- I feel that... - No.
Good morning, Julia.
Good morning, Dudley.
A lovely day, isn't it?
- Lovely. - Henry and I are going out together.
- I'm sorry, but I have appointments. - You what?
I'm seeing Mr. Trevor, then the board meeting and the junior assembly.
- But you promised. - I know I did.
Couldn't Dudley represent you at those meetings?
Out of the question. They expect me. It'd never do if I sent an a...
- The trouble is, I can't explain! - You needn't try to explain.
This is the way it is and the way it will always be.
We've just got to get used to it, that's all.
I'll tell Matilda to take the day off, and I'll take care of Debby.
Mrs. George Hamilton has pledged one million dollars but hasn't sent a check.
Never mind those cards. That's work for a bookkeeper, not an a...
- It's work for a bookkeeper. - So, you're beginning to believe in me.
I don't know who you are or who it was that sent you.
I'd just wish you'd make haste. There's no time to lose.
Because the cathedral must be built?
Obviously. That's the most important thing.
Or because Julia must be happy?
It's going to be difficult to help you...
until I'm sure what it is you really want.
I've got the... Then the...
Would you mind telling me what you intend to do now?
This card index file is an awful mess. I think I'll reorganize it.
I think you're wasting time on unimportant details.
Nothing's unimportant. Remember, we're interested even in the lowliest sparrow.
- Hello, Debby. - Are you Dudley?
Yes. How did you know?
Mummy told me. She said you came to help Daddy.
Mummy said you were very nice.
Well, that's extremely kind of Mummy.
Mummy said that maybe with you here, we'll get to see Daddy sometimes.
- Maybe we will. - That'll be enough out of you, Debby.
I asked Matilda to put your lunch on a tray for you.
Thank you. I'll get along very well.
I'm sure you will. Come on, dear.
- Good-bye, Dudley. - Bye-bye, Debby.
- Thank you, Matilda. - Aren't you going to wear a hat?
- I never use one. - It's very cold outside.
- The cold never effects me. - I think you should wear this anyway.
I bought it for the bishop last Christmas.
- But he's never worn it. - It's a lovely scarf.
I'm sure the bishop will appreciate it when he sees it on me.
Well, thank you. Good-bye.
- What's the matter, honey? - They don't want me.
- Why not? - I guess I'm too little or something.
Why, that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.
Come on. We'll show them how wrong they are.
- Who's the head man around here? - I am!
- What's this game you're playing? - This isn't a game. This is a battle!
We attack the fort and they try to defend it. See?
I see. Well, this young lady would like to get into it.
- Her? - She can't fight. Her father's a bishop.
What difference does it make? Are you high-hat?
- How'd you like her on your team? - She couldn't throw a snowball...
as far as I could spit!
Oh, couldn't she? Come on.
- You show them what you can do. - But it's true. I can't throw.
Nonsense. Of course you can. Here. Pack it tight.
Put it in that hand, throw the arm back...
aim it right at him and let it go!
She pitched a curve!
Did you see that?
Come on, kid! You're in our army. We've broken their moral.
- You think she'll get hurt? - Probably, but she'll love it.
- May I? - Surely.
What are you doing out here?
- Just admiring the scenery. - Aren't you supposed to be working?
I always take a walk before lunch. Good idea... relaxing.
- I wish you'd persuade Henry to do that. - I'll try.
By the way, I told Miss Cassaway to go home...
and I told Delia not to bring me anything on the tray.
What will you do about lunch?
I thought I'd go to Michel's. Ever heard of it?
Michel's? It's a lovely place.
We used to go there years ago.
How about you and I going there today?
You and... To Mich... No, I couldn't.
Why not? Surely, you don't think Henry would mind?
- I'd explain to him it'd be just... - No, it isn't that.
Matilda's off Christmas shopping so I have to look after Debby.
Here's Matilda now.
- If you wish... Oh, hello. - Hello.
If you wish, I'll take Debby home.
- But your shopping. - I finished it.
I finished it so quick, it was just like miracle.
- We won! - That's wonderful!
Come on! We're giving out the medals!
Put up your hood, dear.
- Oh, Michel. - It's been a long time.
Much too long. But you know my husban´s work.
Yes, your husband. He doesn't come to see us anymore.
But we understand. We understand.
This way please.
Is this satisfactory?
Fine, thank you.
- Friends of yours? - Yes.
That is, they're members of the cathedral committee.
- Madame. - Thank you.
- Monsieur? - No, thank you.
Julia, don't bother with that.
Michel, you just bring us the best lunch you can think of.
I can see monsieur is a gourmet. Perhaps you'd be interested in...
Guinea Hen a lß Michel?
Please. Let's leave heaven out of this.
You speak French beautifully.
I've had quite a bit of work to do in Paris.
I've been wondering about you.
- Wondering about me? Why? - You know so much.
- It makes me feel uncomfortable. - Then I'm sorry I learned anything.
I'm glad you knew about Michel.
Oh, it's so nice to be back here again.
- So nice. - You have memories of this place?
Did you and Henry come here often?
As a matter of fact, this is where we became engaged to be married.
Then I can understand why you love it.
- Pardon me. - Thank you.
Well, what about that?
My. Would you care to have your palm read?
No, thank you. Would you?
No, thanks. I know too much about myself as it is.
You are different. I know so little about myself.
Really? May I look at your hand?
- Can you do that too? - It's not too difficult.
- I suppose you can read the future. - Within limits.
He's holding her hand.
What do you see?
I never noticed. Your eyes are green.
I see a great deal of happiness. I see a woman who's adored.
I see a rich, full life.
- Do you see Henry's new cathedral? - It's not very clear.
There's kind of a fuzziness about that.
- And Debby? - No need to worry about her.
Just think. The world changes, but two things remain constant.
- What? - Youth and beauty.
Though they're really one in the same thing.
- Yes. The trouble is, people grow old. - Not everybody.
The only people who grow old were born old to begin with.
You were born young. You'll remain that way.
- I wish I could believe. - You may.
You haven't looked at my hand once.
I never know what to think. I never know if you're joking or serious.
I'm at my most serious when I'm joking.
Excuse me. I've gotta do something about that.
Forgive me coming to your table, ladies. I'm Dudley.
I believe you're friends of Julia's. Would you care to join us for lunch?
- No, thank you. - Why don't you join us for some coffee?
Do come over. Julia will be delighted.
Just over there.
How are you? Nice to see you.
Michel, bring us three Benedictines.
No. Make it three Stingers.
Stingers? Oui, monsieur.
- Is lunch ready? - We thought you were out for lunch.
I cancelled my appointment. Are my wife and Debby home?
- Debby's here, sir. - Where is Mrs. Brougham?
She went out to lunch with Mr. Dudley.
- With Dudley? - Why, yes, sir.
I thought you knew, sir.
Yes. Of course.
That's awful. Merry Christmas, Santa.
Santa Claus doesn't really look like that.
- You know Santa Claus? - I've known him for years.
- Nice chap. - You must tell Debby about him.
She's just beginning to be a little bit doubtful.
- You like that hat. - Yes. I'm crazy about it.
- Let's go in and buy it. - No, I couldn't.
- It's much too... - Too what? Attractive?
Nothing could be... Why! My old friend, the professor.
- Are you with this man? - Of course. It's Dudley.
The professor knows me from the University of Vienna.
I've been thinking about that.
I don't believe you've ever been to Vienna.
It's a game we play. He pretends he's never seen me before.
I don't know who he is, but I don't trust him.
He's Henry's new assistant.
- You mean, you know this fella? - Of course, I do.
In that case, how about dropping by for some yuletide cheer?
No. I have to go home. L...
- Well, perhaps just for a few minutes. - Good! Come along.
There's a little sherry left... a rather inferior grade, but potable.
- I see you're quite a religious man. - What makes you think that?
- You have an angel on your tree. - Julia gave me that years ago.
- Your tree is beautiful. - It's disgraceful.
But it gives me the illusion of peace on earth, goodwill toward men.
- To a charming lady. - Lovely.
- You've noticed? - It's more remarkable that you have.
When you want to know about a woman, ask the old men. They know.
Will you show us the manuscript of your book?
- My book? - Please.
- Oh, no. - You're writing one?
- You didn't know? - You didn't tell me.
I described that book in detail at the University of Vienna.
All my pupils knew.
Now I'm certain this fellow's an impostor.
Oh, that book. I thought you finished that years ago.
I'll tell you...
I'll tell you about my book.
For 20 years I've talked about it.
I promised publishers that it would be delivered next spring.
Funny part is, in all that time, I haven't written one word.
- Not one word. - Why not?
I couldn't think of anything original to say.
The same, old, monotonous history, dry as dust.
That's the whole story of my life.
Frustration. It's a chronic disease...
and it's incurable.
Once, I was madly...
Once, I was madly in love with a girl.
My friends, she was a vision of delight. A pure enchantress.
- You never told me about that. - That's just the trouble.
I never told her about it either.
I couldn't find the words.
So, she married an athlete.
A great hulky oaf who never even reached the eighth grade.
But he knew how to say I love you.
Same trouble as my book. Can't find the words.
Even when you had this coin to inspire you?
Why, that's the one you gave to Henry.
Yes. I stole it off the table.
You wasted your time. It's worthless.
On the contrary. This is one of the rarest of all antiquities.
Only 100 of these were minted by Julius Caesar 2,000 years ago.
That was when Cleopatra visited Rome.
Presumably, these were used to pay her hotel bill.
- I never knew that. - Nobody did, except Caesar's wife.
- And she was suspicious. - Definitely.
She didn't share her husban´s admiration for Cleopatra.
So she had these coins destroyed... melted into ornaments for herself.
This is the one she missed.
It's a unwritten chapter in history.
And you will write it.
Do you know any more stories like that?
Any number of them.
You're a curious fellow.
Have you just begun to notice that?
What's your background?
- My background? - Well, where do you come from?
- Well... - Don't tell me any more about Vienna.
- Because I won't believe it. - All right.
Would you believe me if I told you I came from another planet?
I don't know.
I'd believe you.
And you'd be right, Julia, as always.
We all come from our own little planets.
That's why we're all different. That's what makes life interesting.
We don't seem to be making any headway.
First star I see tonight...
You must make a wish.
It's getting dark. It must be late.
Henry will be worried. We must be leaving.
- Oh, no. - I'm sorry, but we must.
- Yes, my friend. - There's one thing that troubles me.
- One thing I wish I knew. - What's that?
I'm an old man and that history's a tremendous task.
I wonder. Will I have time to finish it?
You'll finish your history. You'll have time.
I believe you.
For a while now, every time I passed a cemetery...
I felt as if I were apartment hunting.
You've given an old man a very happy afternoon.
- Thank you. - God bless you both.
Thank you. I'll pass that recommendation along.
Oh, my. That's pretty.
Why don't you take some of that pink stuff and make curly-cues with it?
- I hope the dinner won't be spoiled. - No, sir.
I had a feeling that they might be late.
Very considerate of you. Who's that cake for?
- What cake? - The cake behind you.
That cake? Oh, for anybody who might like cake.
But you know very well we don't like these elaborate desserts.
But we baked you an egg custard, sir.
Hello, dear. I'm sorry we're late for dinner.
- Good evening. - We've had the most marvelous time.
- I wish you'd been with us. - I wish I had.
- Debby told me about the snow fights. - Did she?
We sent to see Professor Wutheridge and then had lunch at Michel's.
- Is Debby in bed yet? - She's waiting to see you.
Good. I'll go up and say good night.
I won't be long. I'll just see if she's all right.
I trust you spent a profitable afternoon?
Oh, yes. Did you have a profitable afternoon?
Not very. I'd like to see you...
for a moment.
Can you prove to me that you are an angel?
Proof? You mean an document?
You, of all people should know that an angel needs no passport.
I want to see you perform a miracle.
- What kind? - Make the desk fly around the room.
Please! I didn't come down here to do silly tricks.
- I'm surprised at you. - I don't believe you're an angel.
I think you're a demon right out of...
Oh, Henry! Don't say that.
Well, anyway. You know how I feel.
Wait a minute. There's another thing.
Dinner is served, Bishop.
For what we are about to receive, may the Lord make us truly thankful. Amen.
Pass the celery, Henry. Please.
What's that you're humming?
I don't know, dear. Is it anything?
- It's rather gay. - I feel gay.
I like to watch you brushing your hair.
Thank you, dear. Is that a compliment?
Yes. You do it so capably.
Well, thank you.
In fact, now that I think of it...
everything you do is capable.
The one thing I pride myself on is that we lead a well-ordered life.
The family, I mean.
Of course, that's due to you much more than me.
- I think you're an excellent wife. - Thank you.
- Do you think I'm an excellent husband? - Of course.
We're having supper early so we can get to St. Timothy's on time.
- St. Timothy's? - Choir rehearsal for the benefit.
- Oh, yes. - You've been looking very tired lately.
I hope you'll take it easier now that Dudley's here.
- I think that he's very able. - You do?
- He knows so many things. - What, for instance?
You should have seen him with Professor Wutheridge.
He knows more about history than the professor.
He'd been at it longer.
- Let's do that again. - No! Tell me a story.
- Now? - Don't you know any stories?
- I know hundreds of stories. - Tell me one. Please!
All right. Let me think.
Now this happened many, many years ago.
That's not the way to begin.
Stories start, "Once upon a time."
Yes, that's true. Well, once upon a time...
there was a little boy who lived in a little town.
- What was his name? - His name was David.
He was a shepherd and the town where he lived was called Bethlehem.
I know Bethlehem. That's where the star was.
That's right. Only, David lived long before the star.
One night, he was out in the hills tending his sheep.
- He was playing the harp and singing. - Was he singing "Jingle Bells"?
"Jingle Bells" hadn't been written then.
He was singing songs he wrote himself.
Suddenly, an angel came down and spoke to David.
- How did David know it was an angel? - He didn't know.
You know, that's the way it always is.
Angels come and put ideas into peoples' heads.
Then people feel proud of themselves...
because they think it was all their own idea.
This angel said to David...
"One of your lambs has strayed."
David put aside his harp and went into the darkness to find his lamb.
Of course, the angel guided him.
When David found the lamb, he saw a great, big, ferocious lion.
David said to the lion, "You get away from that lamb!"
And the lion said, "Get away from me or I'll eat you too!"
- Did David run away? - No. You know why?
Because the angel put another idea into his head.
David took out his sling and he hurled his stone...
and hit the lion right between the eyes.
I bet that lion was surprised!
And so was David. Because he didn't know an angel had helped him.
Well, he picked up the lamb and took it back to the fold.
He felt so happy, he made up another song.
It started out, "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
"He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
"He leadeth me beside the still waters.
"He restoreth my soul."
- You can tell the rest of this, Henry. - Some other time.
Miss Cassaway, please get Mrs. Hamilton on the telephone.
- Get Mrs. Hamilton on the phone, please! - Yes, Bishop.
- Good morning, Julia. - Good morning.
I'll see you in a minute. I have to see Matilda now.
- Bye, Debby. - Good-bye, Dudley.
