Long Pants

1 
 He gained the greater 
   part of his early 
training at the Oak Grove 
    Public Library.

2
"Little boys should be
seen -- and not heard!"

3
"When he sees these, 
Mother, I bet he'll go 
        wild."

4
"That's just what's the
matter! Short pants
are keeping him off
the streets and out of
      trouble."

5
"Don't worry, Mother -
those pants will never 
   go to his head."

6
"They're a little large --
but he'll grow into them."

7
Then -- like the answer
to a maiden's prayer -
there came to Oak Grove,
Beautiful Bebe Blair.

8
"It's a flat tyre, Madam,
about fifteen minutes
        delay."

9
"Harry!"

10
"HARRY!!"

11
"Hurry Son! Priscilla's
home and is waiting
  on the phone."

12
"I'm sorry about the
 flat tyre, Madam."

13
"Oh, never mind - let's
get away before that 
 boob comes back!"

14
"- - and don't forget,
Harry - you're to be
my partner at the Egg
 Festival tomorrow."

15
"It's easy to guess what
Priscilla said to him!"

16
"Don't be surprised if
 I get married soon."

17
"Mother, our plan is
working - - Priscilla
and Harry! What a
wonderful match!"

18
The right time ---
The right place --
The right wedding --
But the wrong girl --

19
"Forget that other girl -
if you waited for her
to come back, you'd be
a grandfather before
 you were married!"

20
"You're having a wonderful
wedding. Listen to what
   the papers say."

21
"Give the people their
presents back -- I'm not
going to marry Priscilla."

22
"You've read so many 
books you think you're
Don Juan! Well, no son
of mine is going to be 
     a vampire!"

23
"Can't you see, Pa --
when your sweetheart's
in distress you can't go
around marrying other
       women!"

24
"How are you going 
to get out of it now?
You can't! It's too
      late!"

25
"Let's take a little walk 
     in the woods!"

26
"Count five hundred --
   and HOLD STILL!"

27
"Ooh! Good luck!"

28
"You go ahead with
  your counting."

29
"Four ninety seven"

30
"Four ninety eight"

31
"Four ninety nine"

32
"Five hundred"

33
"Well, didn't he tell you 
  where he was going?"

34
"Before he ran away he said
he was sorry, but he couldn't
marry me -- -- and that
his father would explain
      everything."

35
"-- and you know, Mother,
all we can get out of father
is - 'DON'T WORRY! HE'LL
       BE BACK!'"

36
When the whistle blows
over the county jail, it
is either one o'clock or
  somebody's escaped.

37
"BEBE'S ESCAPED!!"

38
"Did you get my
   telegram?"

39
"Look out for the cops.
If they get wise to us
they'll start shooting."

40
"POLICE!"

41
"You naughty girl!"

42
"Stick with me and
you'll be on Easy
     Street."

43
"Say, kid, Bebe's still out
  and she's wise that we 
  squealed on her -- you
  know what that means!"

44
"After your last number,
pack up! I'll be down
     to get you!"

45
"Not so glad to see me,
are you?  You dirty
double-crossing squealer!"

46
"Don't blame me for 
your husband leaving 
you! I had nothing 
  to do with it!"

47
"Why -- I'm surPRISED!"

48
"-- my goodness!"

49
"I'm sorry, but we must 
  part. I'm through!"
