£ FROM WHERE YOU COME FROM £

DENISE, DO YOU BELIEVE IT?

A MONTH FROM NOW

YOU AND I WILL BE
IN GLORIOUS GREECE.

RELAXING ON THE BALCONY
OF THE LUXURIOUS HOTEL EDISON.

TAKING IN YOUR PARTIAL
VIEW OF THE ACROPOLIS.

THIS TRIP IS GOING
TO BE SO GREAT.

OUR DEPOSITS ARE DUE MONDAY.

HOW MANY DRACHMAS
IS IT TO THE DOLLAR?

I THINK ABOUT 100.

THAT MAKES OUR HOTEL ROOM RATE
$3.15 EACH A NIGHT.



THAT'S GREAT.

WHAT KIND OF PLACE IS THIS?

IT LOOKS GOOD IN THE BROCHURE.

DENISE, DO YOUR PARENTS KNOW

THEY'RE GOING TO BE FORKING OVER
ALL THESE DRACHMAS?

NOT YET.

BUT I HAVE A PLAN.

MY MOM'S COMING INTO TOWN.

SO YOU'RE SETTING A TRAP.

IT'S NOT
A TRAP.

MOM'S PLANE GETS IN
AT 3:30, RIGHT?

FROM 3:3O TO 3:35,
HUGS AND KISSES.

3:35 TO 4:00

HEART-TO-HEART TALK
IN THE CAR WITH MOM.

4:00, MOM'S BACK
AT HER FAVORITE SCHOOL.

BY 4:17, SHE SHOULD BE READY
TO SAY YES TO ANYTHING.

THEN THERE'S 4:30, WHEN SHE
FINDS OUT ABOUT YOUR GRADES.

NOW, MILLIE, JUST BECAUSE
TODAY'S MY BIRTHDAY

DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE
TO THROW YOUR MONEY AROUND

LIKE A DRUNKEN SAILOR.

MATERIAL THINGS MEAN
NOTHING TO ME.

EVEN THAT LOVELY SILK SCARF

IN THE WINDOW OF
THE CARROUSEL SHOP.

WHAT SPECIAL PLANS DOES
OUR BIRTHDAY GIRL HAVE?

I THOUGHT YOU AND I
WOULD GO ON A SHOPPING SPREE.

AND THEN OFF
TO THE TWELVE OAKS INN

FOR TEA AND SCONES

WITH PLENTY OF BUTTER--

JUST THIS ONCE.

THEN I THOUGHT MAYBE
WE'D CATCH A MOVIE

LIKE LAST YEAR.

CAN RONALD
COME WITH US?

DID RONALD COME
WITH US LAST YEAR?

NO.

BUT TODAY IS
KIND OF SPECIAL.

IT'S OUR THREE MONTH
ANNIVERSARY.

OOH, THAT IS A MILESTONE
FOR YOU, MILLIE.

BUT MY BIRTHDAY ONLY
COMES ONCE A YEAR.

BUT HE WANTS TO TAKE ME
TO SEE HIS FAVORITE MOVIE.

IT'S ONLY
PLAYING TONIGHT.

COULDN'T WE
CELEBRATE TOMORROW?

I'LL BE FREE ALL DAY.

MILLIE, DO WE CELEBRATE
CHRISTMAS ON THE 26th?

OR THE GLORIOUS 4th
ON THE 5th?

NO, BUT WHITLEY...

FINE, FINE.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY.

FORGIVE ME
IF I DON'T SEND A CARD.

HI, LETTIE.

DENISE, YOU HAVE A MESSAGE

FROM YOUR CREATIVE WRITING
TEACHER, DR. TUCKSON.

I DIDN'T TURN IN MY ESSAY
ON "THE USE OF SLANG."

NO, HE CALLED ABOUT
THE POEM YOU WROTE ON COURAGE

INSTEAD OF THE PAPER
YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO WRITE.

HE WANTS A PAPER.

I GUESS HE'LL CALL ABOUT
THE ESSAY TOMORROW.

THE CLASS IS
CREATIVE WRITING.

I FELT
THE MOST CREATIVE WAY

TO EXPRESS MY FEELINGS
WAS WRITING A POEM.

NOW THAT TOOK GUTS.

DENISE, ALL THIS WILL SEEM
UNIMPORTANT VERY SOON.

THINK GREECE.

GREECE.

DENISE

IF I WERE YOU, I'D KEEP
MY MIND ON THIS CONTINENT.

IT SEEMS TO HAVE WANDERED
ENOUGH FOR ONE SEMESTER.

LETTIE, THIS HAS BEEN
A VERY TOUGH SEMESTER.

NEW ROOMMATES, NEW DORM

NEW DORM MOTHER,
ANOTHER NEW DORM MOTHER.

ALL THIS AND CLASSES...

I'M AMAZED YOU MAKE IT
OUT OF BED EVERY MORNING.

I THINK GREECE IS EXACTLY
WHAT I NEED TO REVITALIZE ME.

LETTIE

YOU ARE
A RENAISSANCE WOMAN.

YEAH, GOOD BRUSH WORK,
BUT YOU MISSED A SPOT.

WHERE?

I'LL GET IT.

RON, THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR LENDING ME YOUR CAR.

I REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

IT WASN'T MY IDEA.

DWAYNE WOULDN'T LET ME
OUT OF THE HEADLOCK.

IF YOU'RE THIS NERVOUS,
I CAN GET ANOTHER CAR.

THAT'S NOT
WHAT I HEAR.

RON, MAN,
THE TANK IS FULL.

THE POINTS AND PLUGS
HAVE BEEN CHECKED TWICE.

SHE COULDN'T BREAK THE CAR
IF SHE TRIED.

GIVE HER THE KEYS.

BE GENTLE.

I'LL TRY.

I'D BETTER STEP ON IT.

DON'T SAY THINGS
LIKE THAT!

LAST TIME WAS A FLUKE.

SHE IS RESPONSIBLE.

WHERE YOU GOING?

FORGOT MY LICENSE.

OH!!

EXCELLENT WORK,
GENTLEMEN.

ONE COAT,
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

THAT'S WHAT A PAINTER
CAN DO FOR YOU, LETTIE.

NEXT TIME,
USE A WEATHER-PROOF LATEX.

WITH THIS STUFF

WE'LL BE BACK PAINTING
IN OUR SENIOR YEAR.

THANKS, I HAVE YOUR NUMBER.

HEY, DON'T PUT
THE BRUSH SO DEEP IN THE CAN.

I SAVED YOU, MAN.

IN YOUR DREAMS.

HELLO.

HELLO.

ARE YOU LETTIE BOSTIC?

I'M SHE.

AND YOU MUST BE
MRS. HUXTABLE.

CLAIR.

LETTIE.

IT'S VERY NICE
TO MEET YOU.

I THOUGHT DENISE
WAS PICKING YOU UP.

YES, I THOUGHT SHE WAS
PICKING ME UP, TOO.

I'M SURE THERE'S
A VERY GOOD REASON.

I'M SURE THERE'S A REASON,
I DON'T KNOW HOW GOOD IT IS.

I'VE REALLY ENJOYED
YOUR DAUGHTER'S EXCUSES.

SOME OF THEM BORDER
ON SCIENCE FICTION.

I SEE YOU'VE GOTTEN TO KNOW
DENISE PRETTY WELL.

YES.

WHY DON'T WE SIT DOWN?

ALL RIGHT.

I KNOW WE'VE
JUST MET, LETTIE.

BUT TELL ME, WHAT IS
GOING ON WITH DENISE?

CLAIR, YOUR DAUGHTER
IS VERY BRIGHT

AND OCCASIONALLY,
NOT A BAD STUDENT

BUT AT TIMES, SHE REMINDS ME
OF THOSE LITTLE TOY FEET.

WHEN YOU WIND THEM UP

THEY RUN AROUND
IN EVERY DIRECTION.

WELL, I HAVE COME

TO POINT THOSE LITTLE TOY FEET
IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

DR. HUXTABLE AND
I HAVE DECIDED

THAT THIS SUMMER,
DENISE WILL GET A JOB.

IF SHE HAS TO CONTRIBUTE
TO HER EDUCATION

SHE MIGHT TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.

YOU'RE CANCELLING
HER TRIP TO GREECE?

EXCUSE ME?

WHAT TRIP?

THE ONE THAT WAS GOING
TO REVITALIZE HER.

THE ONE THAT YOU OBVIOUSLY
KNOW NOTHING ABOUT.

MOM.

DENISE.

IT'S SO GOOD
TO SEE YOU.

I MUST HAVE
JUST MISSED YOU.

I DON'T THINK SO, HONEY.

I WAITED 35 MINUTES.

IT WASN'T MY FAULT.

THERE WAS SO MUCH TRAFFIC.

AND NO ONE TOLD ME

THE AIRPORT WAS
UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

I WANTED SOMETHING
INTERESTING.

WE'RE TOGETHER,
THAT'S WHAT COUNTS.

EXCUSE ME.

I HAVE TO GET BACK TO WORK.

THANK YOU.

SO, COME UPSTAIRS.

I HAVE SO MUCH
TO TELL YOU.

SO I'VE HEARD.

YOU'VE PLANNED
A TRIP TO GREECE.

WHO TOLD YOU?

I'M AFRAID I DID.

LETTIE.

DON'T BLAME LETTIE.

YOU WERE GOING
TO TELL ME YOURSELF.

OR WOULD YOU JUST
SEND ME A POSTCARD?

I WAS GOING
TO TELL YOU--

AT THE RIGHT TIME.

WHEN I WAS IN
A PROPER MOOD?

MOM

I'M ALMOST 20 AND I HAVEN'T
BEEN OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES.

GREECE IS ONE OF
THE CHEAPEST COUNTRIES--

I CHOSE IT
TO SAVE YOU MONEY.

DENISE, YOU WILL NOT
BE GOING ANYWHERE THIS SUMMER

THAT YOU CANNOT
GET TO BY SUBWAY.

BECAUSE, MY DEAR,
YOU WILL GET A JOB.

BUT GREECE IS SUCH A WONDERFUL
EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY.

YES, AND SO IS COLLEGE.

BUT YOU DON'T SEEM TO HAVE
GOTTEN VERY MUCH OUT OF IT.

LETTIE, YOU'VE BEEN TO GREECE.

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY.

YES

I KNOW.

MOM, BUT GREECE...

IS OUT OF THE QUESTION.

JUST LIKE THAT--
WITH NO DISCUSSION.

YES.

GIVE ME ONE GOOD REASON
WHY I CAN'T GO.

YOU WANT A REASON?

GREECE MAY BE THE MOST
INEXPENSIVE COUNTRY IN EUROPE

BUT YOU HAVE SPENT
ENOUGH OF OUR MONEY.

YOU HAVE BEEN HERE
FOR TWO YEARS

AND HAVE MANAGED TO BRING HOME
THE SAME PITIFUL GRADES

WITH EVERY REPORT.

AND IN THE PAST TWO YEARS

YOU HAVE MANAGED TO DO
EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN

EXCEPT DECLARE A MAJOR.

YOU HAVE HAD YOUR VACATION.

NOW IT'S OVER.

I'LL BE BETTER,
I PROMISE.

YES, YOU WILL.

AND NOT ONLY THAT

IF YOU WANT TO CONTINUE HERE,
YOU'LL HELP PAY FOR IT.

HELLO, LADIES.

DENISE, THIS MUST BE
YOUR MOTHER.

I'M WHITLEY,
WHITLEY GILBERT.

YOU TWO ARE GOING
TO HAVE A FABULOUS WEEKEND.

( phone ringing )

HELLO?

I'LL ACCEPT.

HI, DENISE.

I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE YOU.

I NEED TO TALK TO DAD.

I CAN'T.

THIS IS IMPORTANT.

JUST GO GET HIM, OKAY?

I CAN'T.
HE'LL GET IN TROUBLE.

WHAT?

MOM SAID SO.

WHEN DID HE TALK TO HER?

JUST NOW.

YOU REALLY MESSED UP, HUH?

NO, I DID NOT MESS UP.

ARE YOU SURE?

IT SOUNDS BIG.

YOU'RE FLUNKING
OUT OF SCHOOL, RIGHT?

I AM NOT FLUNKING OUT OF SCHOOL.

I HOPE NOT.

I REALLY LIKE
HAVING MY OWN ROOM.

DO YOU KNOW THOSE BEAUTIFUL
ANTIQUE BALLET SLIPPERS

THAT YOU JUST LOVE?

IF YOU GO TELL DAD
HE HAS A PHONE CALL--

DON'T TELL HIM WHO IT IS--

THEY'RE YOURS.

YOU ALREADY GAVE THOSE TO ME.

WHEN?

YOU PICKED ME UP FROM SCHOOL

AND THE POLICEMAN STOPPED YOU
ON THE WAY HOME.

REMEMBER?

YEAH, I REMEMBER.

I MISS YOU.

TELL DWAYNE HI.

AND DON'T FORGET WHITLEY.

HOW COULD I?

BYE.

BYE.

WELL, DID YOUR MOM SAY
YOU CAN COME TO GREECE?

ONLY IF I CAN GO BY SUBWAY.

WHAT?

MY PARENTS HAVE DECIDED
I DON'T DESERVE A VACATION

OR AN EDUCATION.

THEY'RE ACTUALLY THINKING
OF MAKING ME PAY MY OWN TUITION.

SERIOUSLY?

YEAH.

I CALL THEM EVERY SUNDAY,
AND THEY'RE SO SWEET.

"WE MISS YOU.
COME HOME SOON."

NEVER ONCE HAVE THEY SAID:

"OH, BY THE WAY, NEXT SEMESTER
MAY BE ON YOU."

HOW MANY GIRLS OUR AGE
ARE IN JAIL

OR HAVE BEEN PREGNANT,
OR MARRIED, DIVORCED?

SORRY.

LOOK, DENISE, MAYBE YOUR PARENTS
ARE JUST TRYING TO SHAKE YOU UP.

THE SEMESTER'S NOT OVER YET.

THERE'S PLENTY OF TIME
TO FINISH STRONG.

RIGHT.

THEY'VE ALREADY
MADE UP THEIR MINDS

THAT I'M A TOTAL WASTE.

FOUR WEEKS OF HARD WORK
WON'T CHANGE ANYTHING.

DO YOU REMEMBER MY COUSIN ERICA?

SHE MAKES BIRD NOISES IN CHURCH?

YEAH, THAT ONE.

LAST YEAR, ALL SHE WANTED TO DO
WAS PLAY THE CLARINET

SO SHE BEGGED AUNT JALEESA,
"BUY ME ONE, BUY ME ONE."

AND I DID.

TWO WEEKS LATER

WHAT DO I FIND BURIED
IN THE HALL CLOSET?

THE SAME EXPENSIVE CLARINET
SHE BEGGED ME TO BUY FOR HER.

SO?

SO IF YOU WANT THEM
FOOTING THE BILLS

IT WOULD NOT KILL YOU
TO TRY A LITTLE HARDER.

THAT SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE
SOMETHING MY MOTHER WOULD SAY.

OHH, GREECE IS JUST NOT GOING
TO BE THE SAME WITHOUT HER.

THIS BRINGS MY HOTEL BILL
UP TO $6.30 A NIGHT.

BUT IT'S WHITLEY'S
BIRTHDAY.

WE CAN RENT
THE VIDEO ANYTIME.

MILLICENT,
A MAN AND A WOMAN

SHOULD BE SEEN
ON A BIG SCREEN.

PASSION LIKE THAT

CAN'T BE CONFINED
TO A CATHODE TUBE.

Millie:
BUT WHITLEY IS
MY DEAREST FRIEND.

COULDN'T WE
TAKE HER WITH US?

THE MOVIE IS CALLED
"A" MAN AND "A" WOMAN--

NOT A MAN, A WOMAN
AND A GOOD FRIEND OF HERS.

OH, RONALD,
DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE.

MISS MAGNOLIA...

THREE MONTHS AND STILL
COOING LIKE LOVEBIRDS.

YOU WERE MAGNIFICENT.

YOU SHOULDN'T BE
WATCHING THE MOVIE.

YOU SHOULD BE IN IT.

HI, DENISE.

TODAY'S MY BIRTHDAY...

NOT THAT YOU CARE.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WHITLEY.

WELL, THANK YOU FOR
THOSE HEARTFELT WISHES.

WHO RAINED ON YOUR PARADE?

I'M SORRY.

I JUST GOT IN A REALLY
BIG FIGHT WITH MY MOTHER.

ABOUT MONEY?

HOW DID YOU KNOW?

AFTER A CERTAIN AGE

MOTHERS AND DAUGHTER
FIGHT ABOUT TWO THINGS:

MONEY AND MEN.

AND SOMETIMES THEY FIGHT OVER
HOW MUCH MONEY THE MEN HAVE.

MY PARENTS THINK JUST BECAUSE
THEY'RE PAYING MY BILLS

THEY CAN RUN MY LIFE.

WELL, DENISE, LET ME ASK YOU
A PERSONAL QUESTION.

DO YOU HAVE A TRUST FUND?

ARE YOU SERIOUS?

NO TRUST FUND.

HOW ABOUT STOCKS?

YEAH, I HAVE STOCKS.

NOW WE'RE TALKING.

WHAT, AND
HOW MANY SHARES?

TWO AND A HALF SHARES
OF BROOKLYN ELECTRICAL.

NO STOCKS.

WHAT ABOUT BONDS?

WHITLEY, I HAVE $475
IN A SAVINGS ACCOUNT.

ALL RIGHT, LET'S FORGET
ABOUT YOUR FINANCIAL PICTURE

AND THINK ABOUT
YOUR OTHER OPTIONS.

LIKE WHAT?

WELL, YOU COULD EAT HUMBLE PIE
WITH YOUR PARENTS.

OR YOU COULD MARRY WELL.

AND FRANKLY, I THINK
YOU'LL HAVE MORE SUCCESS

WITH THAT SLICE OF HUMBLE PIE.

HELLO?

HI.

YOU MUST BE MRS. HUXTABLE.

IT IS LOVELY AND
BEAUTIFUL TO MEET YOU.

LOVELY.

YOU MUST BE DWAYNE WAYNE.

IT SHOWS,
DOESN'T IT?

HI, MRS. HUXTABLE.

OH, JALEESA.

MAGGIE?

HI.

HI.

DENISE WILL BE
RIGHT DOWN.

IT'S SO GREAT

ROOMING WITH HER.

YEAH.

UH... UH...

I CAN'T SPEAK
AS A ROOMMATE

BUT AS SOMEONE WHO
GOT A PERFECT SCORE

ON HIS MATH S.A.T.s

SHE ENHANCES THE ACADEMIC
ENVIRONMENT OF THIS UNIVERSITY.

I HAVE NEVER
HEARD THAT BEFORE.

UH, MRS. HUXTABLE

I GUESS WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE
ISN'T EXACTLY SUBTLE.

MAYBE DENISE HASN'T GOTTEN
ALL SHE CAN OUT OF HILLMAN YET

BUT SHE'S GIVEN A LOT.

SHE'S CERTAINLY HELPED
MAKE HILLMAN HOME FOR ME.

ME, TOO.

SHE MADE IT
PARADISE FOR ME.

I WOULD BE WILLING TO TUTOR HER
ALL SUMMER LONG FREE OF CHARGE.

I'LL EVEN MOVE IN...

NOT IN HER ROOM.

OF COURSE.

YOU'RE RIGHT.

YOU ARE THE LEAST SUBTLE PEOPLE
I'VE EVER MET.

BUT YOU'RE ALSO
THE MOST SINCERE

AND I REALLY DO
APPRECIATE THAT.

DID I MENTION THE TUTORING
WOULD BE FREE OF CHARGE?

YES, DEAR, YOU DID.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

( chuckling )

WHAT'S SO FUNNY?

I JUST REMEMBERED

THE FIRST TIME WE TOOK YOU
TO A CHINESE RESTAURANT.

YOU WERE THREE.

YOU WERE DETERMINED TO EAT
YOUR FOOD WITH CHOPSTICKS

LIKE THE ADULTS

SO WE SAT THERE FOR HOURS.

THEY STARTED CLOSING UP.

THE OWNER ASKED US TO LEAVE

BUT I SAID, "NO, MY DAUGHTER
HAS NOT FINISHED HER RICE YET."

I GUESS I'VE ALWAYS BEEN SLOW.

OH, I WASN'T
SAYING THAT.

I WAS JUST LOOKING
AT HOW FAR YOU'VE COME

WITH THOSE CHOPSTICKS.

WHY ARE YOU BEING SO NICE TO ME?

SHOULD I SIT HERE
AND GRUNT OCCASIONALLY

WHILE I STAB MY FOOD?

YOU'D BE MORE HONEST
ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS.

AND HOW AM I FEELING?

DO I HATE YOU?

I DON'T KNOW, MOM.

YOU TELL ME.

YOU WANT THE TRUTH?

I HATE YOU.

I'VE ALWAYS
HATED YOU.

IF IT WEREN'T FOR YOUR FATHER

I WOULD HAVE THROWN YOU AWAY
YEARS AGO.

WELL, THAT'S HOW I FELT
THIS AFTERNOON.

I TALKED WITH YOUR CREATIVE
WRITING TEACHER THIS AFTERNOON.

I WILL HAND IN MY PAPER.

HE DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING
ABOUT YOUR PAPER.

BUT HE DID SAY THAT YOU ARE LAZY

THAT YOUR WORK HABITS
ARE ATROCIOUS

AND THAT YOU ARE ONE
OF THE MOST GIFTED STUDENTS

HE'S COME ACROSS IN A LONG TIME.

HE DID?

YES, HE DID

AND HE SHOWED ME
YOUR POEM.

THE ONE HE GAVE ME
A "C" ON?

HE SAYS IT SHOWS
THE GIFT OF EXPRESSION.

AND I SAID

SINCE NEITHER I NOR DR. HUXTABLE
HAVE THAT SKILL--

ESPECIALLY DR. HUXTABLE--

THIS MUST BE
YOUR OWN UNIQUE GIFT.

DID YOU LIKE THE POEM?

IT WAS BEAUTIFUL.

THANK YOU.

BUT WHEN HE SAID YOU WERE LAZY,
I HAD TO AGREE.

YOU ARE ONE LAZY CHILD.

YOU DO NOT WANT TO WORK.

AND IT'S NOT BECAUSE
YOU'RE AFRAID TO FAIL.

I THINK IT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE
AFRAID YOU'RE GOING TO SUCCEED.

THEN PEOPLE WILL EXPECT YOU
TO DO WELL ALL THE TIME

AND YOU'LL HAVE TO WORK.

I DO WORK HARD.

SOMETIMES.

IF YOU COULD SCHEDULE
THOSE "SOMETIMES"

A LITTLE CLOSER TOGETHER

YOU COULD ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING.

I PLAN TO.

I DO.

WHEN, IN GREECE?

NO.

MOM, I WILL
GET A JOB, OKAY?

MAYBE AS
A WAITRESS...

OH, NO.

WITH SALARY AND TIPS

I COULD PROBABLY
PAY ROOM AND BOARD.

OH, NO!

AND MAYBE PART OF MY TUITION,
IF I SAVE UP.

( gasp )

OKAY?

FOR NOW, HONEY, WHY DON'T YOU
JUST PAY FOR DINNER?

MOM, I LOVE YOU.

BUT I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH
TO PAY FOR DINNER.

SHE SPENT DINNER ON HER KNEES
CRYING LIKE A BABY.

IS THAT WHAT YOU'D DO?

HECK, YEAH.

WE WERE GOING TO HAVE
SUCH A GOOD TIME IN GREECE.

HOW MUCH WAS THAT HOTEL WITH THE
PARTIAL VIEW OF THE ACROPOLIS?

$6.30 A NIGHT.

I THINK I CAN SWING THAT.

AT LEAST FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS
AT THE END OF THE SUMMER.

OH, JALEESA!

IT WILL BE LIKE GILBERT HALL
ALL OVER AGAIN.

IF DENISE HAD SENSE

I THINK I'LL GO, ANYWAY.

HELLO, GIRLS AND BOY.

HI.
HI.

MOM, WE HAVE TO STOP
HERE FOR ONE SECOND

AND THEN I'LL START
ON MY PAPER RIGHT AWAY.

DON'T MAKE PROMISES

YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T KEEP.

OKAY, MAYBE NOT TONIGHT

BUT FIRST THING
TOMORROW MORNING.

OKAY.

EXCUSE ME.

I JUST OVERHEARD.

DOES THIS MEAN

YOU'RE NOT GIVING DENISE
THE BOOT?

NOT YET.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU,
THANK YOU!

YOU WON'T REGRET THIS.

I KNOW I WON'T REGRET IT.

£ HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME £

SURPRISE!

OH, NO!
