I could get Wow nice all right don't

think too hard I I think I know the man

I want

of course we'll have to consult mr.

McDavid I mean about coming here every

day and putting in regular hours hej who

did you think

now look here I've got to have an answer

can I count on you or quatre

yes mr. winkel that's the boy that's the

way to talk

you know businesslike and that's the way

we've got to be oh and speaking of

business I wrote something this morning

I wrote it on the banks time it's an

advertisement we've got to put them

event in here oh you're putting the bag

the whole world needs fixing whatever it

is don't throw it away probably can be

fixed good as new your repair troubles

are over when you bring them to the

Fixit shop we fix everything

Wilbur twinkle proprietor and all right

oh I like that that's good now tomorrow

ball and I thought that we ought to put


seems mr. Wesker dropped in mrs. Winkle

doesn't know about it you rock tonight

no Barry

that is not for me well it's getting

late Barry you better be getting back

you see Amy I've never been happy at

that job I am happy when I work with my

hands making things fixing things doing

useful work bill but what didn't

heaven's name has come off of you why

Amy why Fixit shop yes I know how it

sounds but it's creative it it takes

skill well but I'd rather not hear any

more about it it's completely out of the

question for why Amy because it's not

for you well Bert why because it's

unthinkable people don't go around

turning hobbies into businesses you want

your shop very well but then have both

don't make a dreadful mistake well maybe

I am Amy but I've been set on it for so

long I'm not getting any younger and

I'll never find out being locked up in

that bag what I meant well but it's not

for us I should have a little bit to say

way of course Amy the bank is a

profession it's steady its dignified and

however else you feel about it we have

some position in this community you mean

what other people may think and say yeah

I guess you're right at me but we can't

let other people decide what seems as

though all my life it was what someone

else tells me I you mean me well Bert

breakfast waiting

feeling better dear binary that's good

overslept a little didn't you yes I

didn't wake you I thought it would do

you good to sleep late for once a raft

talk to mr. Simkins everything's all


you couldn't even show up as late as new

that's Barry Gary's going to help me

regularly I'm arranging it with mr.

macdaniel well it the Pettigrew boy at

the bank knows you've resigned so mrs.

Pettigrew must know about a tool no you

want to make sure the whole neighborhood

knows it by leaving the house this

morning and those clothes going around

the entire block to that shop back there

well Amy I have asked you many times I

wouldn't have to walk around the block I

could go right through here if you let

me cut a door in the back fence and make

this house a part of that shop never you

leave me no choice

I just won't stand for it I won't be

mrs. Fixit I won't be humiliated if you

walk out of that front door like that

then you can just stay in that shop and

live there too Amy

morning Amy can I come in oh oh of

course my sit down should you breakfast

well then it is true mr. Winkle in the


oh no it's just a little

misunderstanding perfectly silly oh

nothing to it at all mr. Simkins himself

just called in the phone

be right out Barry

excuse me miss pettigrew he hasn't been

at all well lately I see you know what

used to linkle what now that you're

gonna be here all the time

you all have to walk there on the block

to get to work you ought to make that

door in the fence

remember you said you would someday yeah

well let's do it today huh one thing at

a time Barry first we've got to get the

shot Norris I got an idea if you mark it

out on the fence just the way you want

it I bet you I could do it myself I can

get some of the kids to help well I'm

not just yet for a while oh why not

got a telephone we'll install this where

it goes the telephone yes yes right in

here come in Ralph I tell you I'm sure

it'll be back at the bank by noon well

I'm sure because because I told him that

if he made up his mind for the shop he

could just stay there I said he could

stay there and live there too now that's

enough we'll call it a day time for

dinner I don't wash your hands before

you leave just my hands though just the

hands oh oh good evening mr. Palmer

evening mrs. Winkle registered letter

from mr. Winkle registered Selective

Service local board number 49 right

induction notice that's what it is

I just dropped on all four Jack Teddy

grew induction oh yeah one big one I'm

calling up all the available manpower

around here mr. Winkle Ian no not right


well you can sign for him yes Jack

Pettigrew mr. Winkle we'll be going down

together yes thank you mr. Palmer

good evening yeah good night battery

good night mr. Winkle

why aren't you going to well uh not just

yet mr. Winkle paint you go home

can't you certainly I can go home Barry

except that I

well not everybody understands the shop

like we do I got to think things over

you go ahead Barry you go along Barry be

here tomorrow do you think well I think

I can promise that much

good night mr. Winkle the army will not

take Wilbur twinkle if they bothered to

examine him what do you think will

happen he'll be home in an hour

then what you'll be back to the real

issue is at the bank or the shop right

where you were to start with if you go

to pieces on account of this notice

you'll lose everything you've gained so

far is that clear Amy yes it is Ralph

then show no concern don't even bother

to discuss it the thing to do is just

push this on to the door of the shop

that's all

Letta foyer registered I had to give it

to you personally

notice of induction there must have been

other notices before this one I suppose

yes examination to pre induction

seems I never hear of anything until

after it happens but I didn't want you

worried Amy there are some things you

might need I hear Amy says I'm the

report that's just routine I imagine Amy


remember that June


we've always liked about the same things

haven't we

we couldn't really be angry with each

other angry why should anyone be angry

that's it that that's just what I mean

you can love someone very much and still

no matter how important something maybe

two people ought to be able to decide

very calmly exactly if they try to

understand Amy well there's no sense in

going through the whole thing again well

but we both understand perfectly

we'll just have to wait calmly for

someone to decide

mr. Winkle good morning barri who you

gotta stop it I can't look sergeant I

don't want you to get upset what I'm

fine to change wants to make trouble on

good morning hmm I think good morning


what I was trying to tell you up the USO

it that's that's what got me in here

really break any rules didn't I

how wasn't it tough I never imagined

myself behind bars mm-hmm it's just that

if I can make you understand go ahead

may I go ahead well it's it's this right

here in the handbook

it says about having an individual sense

of pride and responsibility yeah right


yeah well now tinkerers got it Betty

Gru's got it you've you've got it all

the others are getting it too that's

what I want sergeant that's what I was

trying to tell you and it's pretty hard

to get while keeping books where no

don't don't misunderstand me I know

that's important too but it seems to me

that it ought to be done by men who

can't do anything else and you mean you

can yes I'd like to do things with my

hands mechanical things that makes me

feel useful you see in civilian life of

14 years it was the same thing books and

it seemed a waste well I never really

cared for it so I finally gave it up got

me in trouble there too but I just can't

see not doing the right thing if one can

do it yeah but this is the army Winkle

yeah I know that sergeant except that

how old you are makes a little

difference in this case I don't think it


you don't huh no sir and you want

mechanics yes do you know what you're

asking to get what you want means taking

a lot of training that's right a lot of

training here's I'm not talking about

primary training no no no nothing is

easier as simple as that

no I'm talking about advanced trained

combat training never let up that's a

tough outfit I know that

just doing the right job is only one yes

admit that but in the end even the

United States Army had to agree with me

I said they couldn't possibly keep him

in they won't hear army releases men

over 38 yes sir

men over 38 but especially Robert Winkle

beginning to think

please yeah I like a married real much

you're like they never act as if they

want to slug you

oh that you'd never never what oh that's


why would you call who me that's

I had you figured out right from the

start but the subtle type what's that

still waters you know still waters that

still waters run deep that's it that you

careful too you wouldn't say anything to

a girl you didn't mean would you no no I

wouldn't real cute when you smile do you

care for my type yes I do

you fellas were down there helping him

tonight and I thought you might know

where he is I'll look boys you know I

wouldn't ask you to tell me any secrets

all I want you to do is to answer one

question if it's a fair question when

you'll answer it it's important Barry's

gone what direction did he take

Barry's on his way to camp to mr. Winkle

camp what happened I don't know I'm

going to look for him oh where how will

you find him well I know he's

hitchhiking south on the main highway

I'll take that route and then head

toward camp I don't think he could have

gotten very far by now I wish you'd come

with me boy yes yes of course

want to lift mister

you were on your way to camp to see mr.

Winkle where to bury

you know mr. Winkle is coming home now

he is it he isn't know mr. Aiello is off

told me on the telephone

what what did he tell you he's not

coming home he's going away he's going

somewhere where the war is for that is

impossible they can't send him into the

fighting he's not a soldier isn't a

young man he's over 44 don't link I

don't care

now listen Barrett you just don't

understand the Army is releasing all men

over 38 all he had to do was ask to get

out especially with him going overseas

were all out there to do what they still

are doing every day

so all these seems sort of well anyway

thank you very much mr. Winkle I have

the further pleasure to it just a moment

my boy please I have the further

pleasure to announce that there will be

a banquet in your honor this evening oh

I wouldn't go to all that trouble if I

were you trouble so the entire country

may know how we value our hero the

debtor National Bank takes the first

step in honoring him permanently its

board of directors have elected will

Bert Winkle or a second vice presidency

in that organization Thank You mr.

Simkins but I don't see after just being

a clerk in the bank what I did in the

army would make me a competent vice

president come come Robert the directors

insists that you accept in fact it's

your duty mr. mosz Cindy I don't follow

your duty to take a leading part in the

affairs of the community from this time


well that doesn't take vice president I

think it can be anybody in the community

and still take a leading part Oh No well

Bert and I've had a lot of time to think

about that

I believe the important thing is to feel

that it's your community and see to it

that it it runs well and always a little

better than it did yes yes Barry thank

you mr. Simpkins but I have some other

plans for the present if you'll excuse


Wilbur you want to go out of the Fixit

shop don't you well bit yes Gary wants

me to of course buy other plans did you

mean opening your Fixit shop as a

permanent business will betray me well

because if you did you may as well get

used to using the shortcut through the

back fence

Barry and the boys did a nice job he

helped too much to Winkle
