[Harry and Marcus are distracting Mrs. Wilberforce while Louis deals with the Major on the roof]



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
It won't do any harm to tell you now that Major Courtney has gone to the police. They'll be here shortly.


[there is a loud crash from outside]



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
Oh! Whatever is that?



Harry:
I expect something fell off the roof, mum.



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
The roof?



Harry:
Probably a... chimney-pot.



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
A chimney-pot?



Professor Marcus:
See who it is, Harry


[pushes Harry out the door]

[She knocks on the door]



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
[pacing] Oh, oh dear, oh dear. Poor Mr. Robinson.


[She knocks again; the music stops and Claude opens the door]



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
I'm so sorry, Major Courtney, but I'm afraid General Gordon has bitten Mr. Robinson's finger. Now he's on the top of the cabinet and refuses to come down.



Louis:
Mr. Robinson is on top of the cabinet?



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
Oh, no Mr. Harvey. General Gordon. Mr. Lawson, you're the tallest. Do you think you could try to get him down for us?



One-Round:
Sure, I'll get 'im, mum


[he starts down the stairs]



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
Oh, I feel I'm being such a bother.



Louis:
How could you possibly think a thing like that?



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
Oh, you *are* kind.

One-Round:
[looking blankly at his cello] Are we supposed to make noises with these things? What kind o' noises?



Louis:
Who is she?



Professor Marcus:
Not "noises," One-Round, *music*!



Louis:
I said what does she mean, you...


[Professor Marcus shushes him and turns on the record, dancing a bit to the music]

Professor Marcus:
You're most kind, and if I may say so, you have a very curious and charming house. Such, um, pretty windows.



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
Oh, thank you,


[pointing to a window]



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
and I rather favour positions...



Professor Marcus:
[interrupting] I always think the windows are the eyes of a house, and didn't someone say the eyes are the windows of the soul?
