Boys Town

Well, how do you like the place, Whitey?
The more I see of it,
the more I don't like it.

Well, you will like it.
I'm clearing out of here
the first chance I get.

There's a chance for that
any hour of the day or night.

My hunch is, though, you won't take it.
I'll give you odds on that.
If I was a betting man,
I'd take you up on that.

- Is that all?
- That's all.

I like Whitey, Father.
You and I, we like everybody,
don't we, Pee Wee?

- He give me this.
- He gave you that.

Yes, he gived it to me.
Goodbye, Father.
- Hello, Mr. Morris.
- Hello, Pee Wee.

- What you got, the mumps?
- No, candy.

- Say, what's your name?
- This is Mr. Burton, Pee Wee.

Hiya, Burt... Mr. Burton.
He's the chairman
of Father Flanagan's board.

I'm gonna be Mayor someday.
Eddie, there's a little matter of red ink
in the financial statement.

In other words, a deficit.
You have a rather bad situation here.
Yes, we have a boy in trouble.
Something new?
There's always a boy in trouble.
If we don't attend to this,
there'll be a lot of boys in trouble.

Have all that stuff laid out
in the gymnasium, and...

Hey, look.
Hello, kitchen?
Mr. Brown, how soon will lunch be ready?

Well, ring the bell right away,
will you, please?

And give it two or three extra rings. Right.
