Harriet the Spy

Harriet? Harriet,
what are you doing

in that contraption?
Come in here at once.
Miss Golly,
what are you doing

with my child, at this hour,
without my consent?

- Who is that?
- My name is...

- Shut up!
- I'm sorry.

We only went to dinner
and then a movie.

Harriet is not
your daughter, Miss Golly.

She is mine,
and you have no idea, none,

what it is like
to come home and find

- that your child is missing.
- We had no idea

that you'd be home this soon.
I don't care.
I don't care what you did

or where you went or why.
All I know is this
can never happen again.

Miss Golly... you are fired.
What?! No!
Just a moment.
This is my fault. Please.
Well, it seems
awfully sudden.

maybe it's not.
I think you're right,
Mrs. Welsch.

It is time for me to go.
Now, look, I admit, I lost it...
because, I just...
I was frightened.

But the thing is, the fact is
we need you, Golly.

We can't do it alone.
We all spoke out of turn,
I think.

None of this is causing...
Absolutely not.
Absolutely, no.
I mean, I think we were
talking about...

our feelings out there.
You were afraid
and-and-and now

what we should
be focusing on, right?

Is-is Harriet.
Look, I'm sorry.
- I lost my head out there.
- Look. There.

- No, no.
- I was just...

but you can't go...
I mean, we need you.

Harriet would never
stand for it.

Please, won't
you reconsider?

You know, it's not about
what happened
outside tonight.

It really isn't.
But Golly...
I just... no, I think it's time.
I really do.

Harriet can take care of herself
now, so she should.

But Harriet's just...
She's just a little girl.
You know, it's the right thing.
It's the right thing
for all of us...

for me, for you
and for Harriet.

Are you sure?
Yeah, I am.
