Stop! Stop that infernal coughing.
Every morning alike. Clear your throats
on the way to school, not here.

Sounds more like a dirt track
than an assembly hall.


Come out! Come out, that boy!
Who coughed? Mr Hesketh,
somewhere near you, I think.

Fetch that boy out!
MacDowall, it was you.
You were coughing.

- lt weren't.
- Yes, it was. I heard you.

- lt weren't, sir.
- Don't argue.

- lt weren't me, honest.
- Headmaster's study.

MacDowall! I might have known!
Get to my office!

- lt weren't me, sir.
- And heaven help you.

We will now say the Lord's Prayer.
Hands together, eyes closed.
Our Father...
Our Father
which art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done...
- Does he bite yer?
- He's had a little kid's hand off nearly.

Has it? My, my, my!
What's it fastened on? A wire?

Aye. It's broke this off an' all.
Just darted at t'kid and got him.

Well, I don't know, I'm sure.
ls that what you've got t'glove on for?

- Yeah. Just in case it gets me.
- Aye. Aye.

- What d'yer call it?
- Kes.

Kes? Aye. He is a nice bird.
I shouldn't like to handle him.
Casper! Casper! Up, lad! On yer feet!
- You were asleep, weren't you, Casper?
- I don't know, sir.

I know! You were. You were asleep.
Why were you asleep,
you irreverent scoundrel?

- Don't know, sir.
- I know why!

You were roaming the streets at night
instead of being home in bed.

See me in my office afterwards! I'll give
you something to sleep about! Sit!
