Harriet the Spy

Frankie, you took the truck
last week.

Wasn't that enough?
Stop walking around.
Frankie, go do some homework.
I've done my homework.
Do some reading.
Watch TV.
Do something.

Grandpa, all I need
is the truck.

I know you know
that I mean.

Come on, Ma,
let me have the truck.

I got a date!
What do you take me for?
The Hong Fats have a son...

He's cool; American style.
His parents are
Chinese-style cool.

Frankie likes going out,
but they'd rather
he work in the store,

selling milk and bread
and lizards.

I mean, do I try to interfere
with your bookkeeping?!

My business is comedy!
That's what I do!
I'm funny!
I'm the funny guy!

Yes, you are.
They're the money guys.
Okay, slippery,
bath time's over.
Come out with your hands up.
But I just got in.
Oh, sure.
I believe that one.

Let's see your fingers,
prune girl.

Talk to the hand,
'cause the face

ain't gonna listen.
He asked me to come up
with something new,
something fresh.

You read it.
It was good.

- Yes.
- It was the funniest script

we've had all year!
Yes, it was. So what
was their problem?

Hey, I want to hear.
Oh, yeah?
I want to sing opera,

but I can't, so I don't.
That downstairs is...
Well, your dad
has a high-pressure job.

What's a high-pressure job?
It's when you don't
get to do what you want

and when you do,
you don't have time to do it.
Do spies have
high-pressure jobs?

Only when
they're caught.

I'm never caught.
You're right.
You never are.
Oh, look, a ugly water bug!
Caught ya.
