Boys Town

- just on circumstantial evidence.
- Well, what do you want me to do?

There's the salami,
and there's Mr. Calatieri.

They can have my salami.
I give it to them, free for present.

But next time, please, not the imported.
- There won't be any next time.
- You should have studied law, Father.

Thank you, Your Honor.
Well, I guess that's...

Unless my good friend wants to identify
the boy who threw the rock.

My window was smashed.
$80 gone to someplace...

But I...
Well, I can't say who did it, positively.
Father Flanagan, what's in your mind?
I'll assume full responsibility for these
boys if you'll place them in my charge.

I'll give them a home,
I'll see to their schooling...

and I'll guarantee their good conduct.
Well, I think you're letting yourself in
for a lot of trouble, but I'll give it a chance.

I release these boys into your custody.
- Thank you, Your Honor.
- And good luck to you.

Thank you. Come on, boys.
You're one of the finest fellows in town.
Why in the name of all that's holy
don't you want to meet nice people?

- Well, Dave, I know you.
- You...

- Father, do you want this?
- What is it, son?

It's a puzzle. You have to jiggle it around
till you get the eyes in the sockets.

Isn't that wonderful.
Thank you very much, Skinny.
I'll have a lot of fun with this.

Dave. Come on, boys.
Could you take the boys to your place
and keep them there a little while?

Sure. What?
I've got an important call to make.
All right, gentlemen, get in.
Oh, boy. A car ride.
Tommy, you better sit up here
in the front seat.

On second thought, you better all sit up
in the front seat. I feel safer.

Hold on, boys. Be careful.
- Dave, I'll see you a little later.
- Could you make it a little sooner?

Do you want me to drive, Mr. Morris?
I gave you permission three years ago
for your refuge.

You thought you could do a lot of good.
