Bad news sir? Miss Beatrix and her father are going to Aix-Les-Bains. Oh, I’m sorry sir. Sir Charles’ health, no doubt. Yes, yes. Yes, sir Charles’ health, no doubt. If you’ll forgive me sir, it upsets me to see you like this. It isn’t right. All work, as the saying goes sir. They say there’s a very interesting musical show at the vanity fair sir. Very comical, you know sir. And very daring if you follow my meaning. Yeah, I follow your meaning Poole. But I don’t think it would be wise, even though it is comical. Quite so sir. I’ll fetch you another glass sir. Oh, never mind. Thanks for the pay sir. Hey, hey, hey. Here, what’s the idea guvnor? Oh, I beg your pardon sir. Yes, sir? Box F sir, right this way. Now, all together, boys. Two pints. A tip, a tip of course. Seven shillings sir? Why… Why not? You work hard, don’t you? Yes sir, bless you sir. You have a family, no doubt. Yes, yes sir, thanks. Did you hurt yourself friend? Hey, what the…? Oh, what a pity. You were thinking of the children no doubt, eh? Now, have that girl in the barmaid bring me some champagne. Ivy ain’t allowed to leave the bar. I don’t think you understood what I said. What’s all this here? This gent here wants champagne sir. Champagne? All right, then, bring it, bring it. But he wants Ivy to serve it. Of course Ivy will serve it. Go on. Look lively. A gent in box F would want you to serve him and Old Prouty says you’re to do it. He does, eh? I’ll tell him it ain’t my business. But he wants a bottle of the boil. Oh bubbly, why didn’t you get say so? Hey Ivy, Ivy me love, how about some fish and chips after the show? How about a dozen oysters, a pint of stout? No. Oh, what about a glass of champagne? Oh, hello, Marcia. Hello, Ivy. Watch out Ivy. How’s about it Ivy? Over there Ivy. Ain’t she a bit of horseflesh? Well then, that be half a quid sir. Half a quid? Yes, sir. Half a quid. Here. Here’s a sovereign my dear, keep the change. Thank you sir. Oh, but you’re not going? No, no, no. After all, you brought two glasses. Two minds with but a single thought. My, what a nice beginning. Sit down there, sit right down. Well I… Well I, I’ll just take a sip. Of course, I shouldn’t stay too long. Oh, nonsense. Nonsense. You can stay as long as you like. After all, we have all evening, haven’t we? Of course we have, here. There are you. Oh, I like your singing. Yes, you must sing again for me sometime. Where did you get such a pretty voice? Well I, I don’t know. I just… Perhaps it’s the pretty place it comes from? Well… Very lovely, where it comes from. Well, here’s health so good luck. I make my own luck my dear. Yes, and tonight, tonight I’d follow the rainbow. Oh, you don’t half talk, do you? Perhaps we could follow it together, eh? I’ll follow it right home mister. To that rat trap? Hey, what are you calling names? Well, I think you deserve something better. How do you know where I live? Well I, I can imagine. Surely your wages here don’t, don’t earn you a place in Barkley Square. Well, I think I’ll be off. Why? I don’t confuse you, do I Ivy? I believe I do confuse you, don’t I? I ain’t confused by nobody. Let go, you hear? Let go. Let go, you hear? What’s he doing Ivy? Oh, you let go too. What happened Ivy? Hear, hear., what’s this all about? It’s him, he, he insulted her. He’s lying, I tell you. He tried to break her arm. He did, did he? Yes, yes, tried to break her arm. You will, eh? You want another one? No, no, stop it, stop it. I’ll stop it sir. Hey boys, now boys, boys, will you…? Oh, I can’t understand what happened, never a rumpus here. Most orderly. It’s that girl… Ivy, that barmaid, pretty girls always cause trouble, I’d throw her out if I were you. What, Ivy? I can’t do that to Ivy. A great man can always change his mind… for a reason. Yes sir, why certainly sir, yes sir. A troublemaker, that’s what she is, out she go. Yes, but now, now while the evening is still young. Yes sir, certainly sir. Yes certainly. What happened? I ain’t done nothing. Just minding my own business, that’s all. That’s my decision my girl. Oh, stop pushing. Don’t hang about here. Who’s hanging about? Go on, don’t argue the point, good riddance. What’s happened in there? Is there some trouble Ivy? Trouble? I was sacked, that’s what. How fortunate I’m here, I’d like to help you. Oh, just let me back in there so I can bash him on the nose, that’s all. Quite the little Tartar, aren’t you? Always ready to flare up. Oh, I like that. Here, here, this, this is just to prove that, that I want to help you. The rainbow is wide and long, Ivy. Oh now wait I, I better get home. No, no, no. Ivy, my darling, you belong with the immortals. Come with me to Mount Olympus, drink nectar with the gods. Sing the ancient songs of pleasure and put Athena and Diana to shame. Oh, you aren’t half of one with the words, aren’t you? And don’t be frightened of me, will you Ivy? When a botanist finds a rare flower, he shouts his triumph, doesn’t he? Are you one of them? You, you like a man who sees a girl and makes up his mind, don’t you? I don’t know what you’re talking about. Oh, she does know what I’m talking about.
