She was Lo. Plain Lo in the morning.
Standing four feet ten in one sock.
She was Lola in slacks.
She was Dolly at school.
She was Dolores on the dotted line.
In my arms, she was always...
Light of my life.
Fire of my loins.
My sin.
My soul.
But there might have been
no Lolita at all...

..had I not first met Annabel.
We were both 14.
Whatever happens to a boy
during the summer he's 14...

..can mark him for life.
That hotel you see, the Mirana,...
..that belonged to us.
She wanted to be a nurse.
I wanted to be a spy.
All at once we were madly,
hopelessly in love.

Four months later, she died of typhus.
The shock of her death
froze something in me.

The child I loved was gone.
But I kept looking for her...
..long after I'd left
my own childhood behind.

The poison was in the wound, you see.
And the wound wouldn't heal.
I probably should have
joined the priesthood.

Instead, I accepted a teaching post
at Beardsley College in America.

I had a summer free
before the Fall semester.

I thought I'd finish
a textbook I was working on.

A survey of French literature
for American students.

I took my advance...
..and went to live at the house of friends
of my late uncle's, the McCoos,...

..in the New England town of Ramsdale.
But on arriving, I found
that it was no longer there.

But a friend of Mrs McCoo,...
..a widow, Mrs Charlotte Haze,...
..agreed to accommodate me.
- Goddamn dog!
One minute. Something's burnin'.
Lord have mercy!
Mrs Haze'll be down in one.
ls that Professor Humbert,
Louise? Tell him I'll be down in one.

She'll be down in one!
Monsieur Humbert.
Uh, yes.
Mrs Haze, is it?
I am so pleased
to make your acquaintance.

Frank McCoo told me all about
your scholarly pursuits.

I myself just cherish the French tongue.
Um... I wonder, could l...
Mm. Come in.
Harold and l, the late Mr Haze,...
..we simply adored Mexico.
The whole idea
of a culture that sophisticated.

And we think of them as primitive.
I mean, look at us!
Indeed, yes.
I and Lo have our rooms just there.
And this is your room.
Space for a desk, anything you want.
And at $20 a month,
you can't beat the price.

And here's the bathroom.
It's a bit of a mess.

And this is the kitchen.
Now, if you have any special
food needs, you just say.

I don't know if Ramsdale can provide you
with foie gras, like you're used to.

What's that?
Uh... timetable. For when I um...
I was hoping I wouldn't have to,
but I think I've got to go back to New York.

- Oh, you're not too favourably impressed.
- No... There's a Baudelaire conference...

This is not a neat household,
but you would be very comfortable here.

Very comfortable indeed.
Don't say no until you've seen the piazza.
Well, I call it the piazza.
It's so much work
to keep it healthy and green.

It's a life's work.
That's my Lo.
And these are my lilies.
I love lilies.
- Lily's a nice name, don't you think?
- Beautiful.

How much did you say the room was?
A normal man,...
..given a group photograph
of schoolgirls...

..and asked to point out
the loveliest one,...

..will not necessarily choose
the nymphet among them.

You have to be an artist,...
..a madman, full of shame
and melancholy and despair,...

..in order to recognise
the little deadly demon among the others.

She stands...
..unrecognised by them,...
..unconscious herself
of her fantastic power.

- See you later, alligator.
- After a while, crocodile!

- Real soon, Daniel Boone.
- Get fucked, Daffy Duck.

# Don't know why...
there's no sun up in the sky

# Stormy weather
# Since my man and I ain't together...
You woke me up.
- Sorry.
I'll stop.
Have you made your bed?

No, I have not made my bed.
I asked you to make your bed, didn't l?
No. You asked me if I'd made my bed.
Make your bed.
- Now!
I long for some terrific disaster.
Spectacular explosion.
Make your bed!
Her mother instantly eliminated.
Along with everybody else
for miles around.

..in my arms.
I'm sleepy today.
Me too.
Have you been having trouble sleeping?
You can't imagine.
Am I getting a zit?
Do you see a pimple on my chin?
You look absolutely perfect to me.
Wanna see my chin wobble?
Is she keeping you up?
I beg your pardon?
No. No, I'm...
Well, it's probably just a 24-hour bug.
He was looking forward to meeting you.
Has anybody seen my other sneaker?!
Your breakfast, Professor Humbert.
Don't tell Mother, but I ate all your bacon.
- Dolores, that was Mrs Farlow.
- So?

Rose has a temperature
and can't go to Hourglass Lake.

- Oh, yeah?
- Do not use that tone with me!

Are you ready for church?
I'm not going to that disgusting church.
- Young lady...
- No picnic, no church.

That is fine with me.
It is your conscience.

I want your room spick-and-span
when I get home.

- And wash your hair, young lady.
- I did wash it!

- When?
- A couple of months ago.

I could be a dancer.
That's a major option.
Cos I do have a natural grace.
- You know. A kind of sad beauty.
- Sort of sad is right.

I'd like to see you dance sometime.
Little girls always want to be
ballerinas, don't they?

I know I did.
But I was - how should I put it? -
a tad too... plump?

- Is that the right word?
- Yes.

I'll get more Vouvray.
Make her take us
to Hourglass Lake tomorrow.

- Me?
- Mm-hm.

She'll do anything you say.
She's getting a thing about you.
Whisper, whisper.
What are you two so cosy about?
Um... Did I ever tell you both that...
..l was once a...
..that I was once a... um...
Uh... that l...
I was once a cook in the North Pole?

- A cook?
- Well, not exactly a cook.

I opened a few cans.
It was a weather expedition.
And I shot a polar bear.

- No!
- Well, I didn't hit it.

Why shoot a polar bear?
That's a lousy thing to do.

Because I found it...
..with its face - listen to this -
in the ice-cream mixer.

I couldn't let that pass
because we lived off ice cream.

You're out of your gourd, Humpy.
Will you stop fidgeting with the doll?
And now we all think
that Lo should go to bed.

What do you mean "we", paleface?
So, as I was saying, there I was
with my white polar-bear gun...

-..to blend in.
It's for me!
- No, I'm sorry. She's busy.
- I hope you will forgive her bad manners.

- Now what?!
Look! It's my modern dance creation!
Dolores Haze, turn that music down!
She is a pest. Just slap her hard
if she interferes with your meditations.

Hum, do you know that I have
one most ambitious dream?

To get a hold of a real trained maid...
..like that German girl
that the Talbots spoke of...

..and have her live in the house.
- No room.
- Oh, chéri, chéri.

You underestimate the possibilities
of our humble household.

We'd put her in Lo's room.
I intended to turn that hole
into a guest room anyway.

But where would Lo sleep?
Little Lo does not enter the picture at all.
Little Lo goes straight from camp
to a good boarding school...

..with strict discipline
and some sound religious training.

I won't go!
I want all of these name tags
sewn on your clothes by tomorrow.

I don't want to go.
I didn't ask your opinion!
I don't want to go and you can't make me.
Look, we all think it's a good idea.
Professor Humbert thinks it's a good idea,
I think it's a good idea, and you are going!

I asked you to put that suitcase
in the car an hour ago!

Louise, thank you so much
for helping the poor child.

Goddamn it! Dolores, I told you
to put this lunch basket in the back seat!

Why always tell me to do everything?
I'm the one that won't be eating it.
Louise! Brussels sprouts
and meat loaf for dinner.

- All right. Drive careful.
- Thank you. Let's go!

- Bye, my baby.
- Bye, Louise.

- You be good. I'm gonna miss you.
- Agh!

Let's go!
Speed it up!
Get in the car!
Now what?! That child!
- Louise, maybe tenderloin.
- That'd be good.

I'm waiting!
If I've told you once,
I've told you a thousand times...

..not to make me wait in the car.
If you weren't going to camp,
I would ground you.

Mr Humble!
These damn stairs
are gonna be the death of me.

Mr Humble!
Mr Humble!
Mr Humble?
I have something for you.
Oh, yes.
I'm leaving, but I'll be back later.
What the hell he doin' in there?
This is a confession.
I love you.
I'm a passionate and lonely woman...
..and you are the love of my life.
Now you know.
So please, destroy this letter and go.
I shall return by dinner time
and you must be gone by then.

You see, chéri, if l found you at home,...
..the fact of your remaining
would mean only one thing.

That you want me as much as I do you,
as a lifelong mate,...

..and that you are ready to link up
your life with mine for ever and ever...

..and be a father to my little girl.
Two weeks later,
we were married in a simple ceremony.

Big Haze made sure little Haze
was not in attendance.

Mm. This is bliss.
This is heaven on earth. Isn't it, Hump?
Are you working on your book?
Oh, a secret drawer. What's in there?
Locked-up love letters.
Where's the key?
"I'm in the Mood for Love")
During the six weeks
we'd been married,...

..l successfully avoided
most of my husbandly duties.

Throughout July, I'd been offering
Charlotte various sleeping tablets,...

..which she gobbled down happily.
She was a great taker of pills.
# I'm in the mood for love
# Simply because you're near me
# Funny, but when you're near me
# I'm in the mood for love
# Heaven is in your eyes
# Bright as the stars we're under
# Oh, is it any wonder...
The last dose I had tried
had knocked her out for four hours.

But that was not enough
to guarantee me an undisturbed night.

At last!
I think I must be immune.
Wh... What would you give me
if you wanted to uh...

..to knock out...
..say, a cow?
J- Just for... seven or eight hours.
So that...
..you know, the cow... would stay asleep?
Even if you were
tossing and turning next to it.

Why don't you...
..try these?
They're new.
My wife takes them and...
..l don't hear a peep out of her
all night long.

Sounds like just the thing.
I'm home!
"The Haze woman."
"The fat cow"?
"The obnoxious mamma"?
Well, the "old stupid Haze woman"
is no longer your dupe.

You're a monster.
- You're a despicable, criminal monster.
- Now...
- If you come near me I'll scream!

- Let me just...
- Get away from me!

I'm leaving tonight.
You can keep this house. I don't care.
But you will never see
that miserable brat ever again.

Now get out of my sight!
Charlotte, you mustn't...
You mustn't ruin our lives.
That's just... That's just a fragment of...
..a novel I'm writing.
I used your name on those...
..just for... convenience.
I'll get us a drink.
A nice stiff drink
will clear both our heads.

Charlotte, I made us a nice stiff drink!
But that's ridiculous.
There's this man on the phone
saying you've been killed, Charlotte.

I'm... I'm sorry.
Stand back, please.
Where's my wife?
- Are you Mr Humbert?
- I am.

She ran right in front of me.
I... I didn't even see her.
I'm sorry, sir.
Is this Mrs Humbert?
..is this Mrs Humbert?
Oh, God...
Oh, God... Oh, God!
She was walking to the mailbox.
She was going to mail these letters.
I'm sorry.
Thank you.
I'll go and... lie down, officer.
- Will that be all right?
- You go right ahead, sir.

I'll just be across in the house if you...
Is that the Enchanted Hunters Hotel?
Yes. This is Mr Humbert.
Tomorrow night.
Just the one night, please.
Yes, a room with twin beds.
For two.
Well, one and a half people, really.

It's just for me and my...
..my short... my small daughter.
She should be here any minute.
I sent Charlie for her over at the barn.
- Who's Charlie?
- Come on, come on.

It's such a pleasure to watch
our young people make friends.

- So uh... who is this Charlie?
- Here she is.

Hi, Dad!
# Hum and Mum, Mum and Hum
# Hum and Mum, Mum and Hum
# Hum and Mum, Mum and Hum...
- How's Mum?
- Well... The doctors aren't quite sure.

It's something abdominal.
She's in a special hospital
over in Lepingville.

So... I thought we'd... we'd...
..go over to Briceland,...
..spend the night there and...
visit the hospital tomorrow.

Or the next day.
So, did you have a good time at camp?
You know, I missed you.
I missed you a lot.
Well, I didn't miss you.
In fact, I've been
revoltingly unfaithful to you.

But so what? Cos you don't care
about me any more anyway.

Why do you think I don't care about you?
Well, you haven't
kissed me yet, have you?

- Uh, I'm sorry, officer.
- See a blue sedan, same make as yours?

- They might have passed you at the turn.
- Blue sedan? No, I don't think... agh!

- We didn't see a blue sedan.
- No, I don't think we did.

Are you sure it was blue?
I saw one that was more purple.

Or maybe it was more red.
All right, OK. Thank you.
- Thank you!
Don't shoot, don't shoot!
Wow! Looks swank!
# No, I will never tell lies
# But still I'm called Buttercup...
Good evening. I have a reservation
in the name of Humbert.

Twin-bedded room.
I called last night.
- Two people.
- Oh!

I'm sorry, Mr Humbug.
I held the room with the twin beds for you
till 6.30, but I didn't hear from you.

We hold till 6.30. And with the flower
show and Glory of Christ convention...

My name is not Humbug. It's Herbert.
Just put us in any room. Put a cot in
for my daughter. She's very tired.

Perhaps I could put you in room 342.
It has a double bed.

I expect we'll manage.
My wife may be turning up later.

Please sign here, mister.
It's a nice dog, huh?
I love dogs.
Well, that's my dog.
He likes you.
Doesn't like everybody.
Who does he like?
He can smell when people are sweet.
He likes sweet people.
Nice young people.
Like you.
Here we are.
Thanks very much.
Wait a sec. You mean
we're sleeping in one room?

With one bed?
I've asked them to send up a cot,...
..which I'll use, if you like.
You're crazy.
Why, my darling?
Because, my darling,...
..when my darling mother finds out,
she'll divorce you and strangle me.

..listen to me a moment.
For all practical purposes,
I am your father,...

..and I'm responsible for your welfare.
Now, we're not rich.
So when we travel, we-we're sure to be...
I mean, we'll be thrown together.

Two people sharing
the same hotel room...

..are bound to... enter into a...
How can I put it? Into a kind of um...
The word is "incest".
I feel like we're grown-ups.
Me too.
We get to do whatever we want, right?
Whatever we want.
Well, now.
Who had the pie?
Whaddaya think? Are they me?
- Don't look now.
- Why?

The guy over in the corner.
Don't look! He was staring at us.
Don't you think that guy
looks exactly like Quilty?

What, the dentist?
Of course not. His brother.
The writer Quilty.
You know, he writes the plays.

The smoking guy.
He smokes the Dromes in the ad.

We saw him in the lobby with his dog.
If I tell you how naughty I was at camp,...
..you promise you won't be mad?
Tell me later.
I want you to go to bed.
I'll go downstairs while you...
When I come up, I want you to be asleep.
All right?
I've been such a disgusting girl.
Just let me tell you.
Tell me tomorrow.
I'm going to go now. All right?
Good night, Dad.
Gentlewomen of the jury,...
..if my happiness could have talked,...
..it would have filled that hotel
with a deafening roar.

My only regret...
..is that I did not immediately deposit
key number 342 at the office...

..and leave the town, the country,
the planet, that very night.

The Lord knows all,
the Lord sees all, the Lord forgives all.

Where the devil did you get her?
- I beg your pardon?
- I said the weather's getting better.

It seems so.
Who's the lassie?
It's my daughter.
You lie. She's not.
I said July was hot.
Where's her mother?
Oh. Sorry.
Why don't you two
lunch with me tomorrow?

That clerical crowd will be gone soon.
We'll be gone too, thanks.
Good night.
Sorry. I'm very drunk. Good night.
That child of yours needs a lot of sleep.
"Sleep is a rose" the Persians say.
Not just now, thanks.
Good night.
Get back in the boat with Charlie.
You don't have to do that.

Back in the boat.
I'm thirsty.
I'll bring you something.
You... You played that with Charlie?
At camp?

Don't tell me you never tried it
when you were a kid.

I guess I'm gonna have to
show you everything.

Gentlewomen of the jury,...
..l was not even her first lover.
What are you reading?
What's the matter?
You know that friend of yours
- Charlie - at camp?

Was he the first one?
Can we please get off the subject?
I felt more and more uncomfortable.
It was something quite special,
that feeling.

An oppressive, hideous constraint,...
..as if l were sitting with the small ghost
of somebody I had just killed.

Can we stop at a gas station?
We can go anywhere you like.
Well, I need a gas station.
I hurt inside.
Well, what do you expect?
I was a daisy-fresh girl,
and look what you've done to me.

I should call the police and tell them
that you raped me, you dirty old man.

- Just wash the windscreen, would you?
- Yes, sir.

Got some cookies.
I want to call Mother in hospital.
What's the number?

Get in. You can't call the hospital.
Why not?
Just get in the car.
Slam the door.
Why can't I call my own mother
if I want to?

Because your mother's dead.
Shh... Shh...
We made up very gently that night.
You see, she had nowhere else to go.
It was then that we began
our extensive travels...

..all over the United States.
# Now the native population
and civilisation is fine

# That civilisation
is the thing for me to see

# Whoa, bongo, bongo, bongo
# I don't wanna leave the Congo,
no, no, no, no, no, no

- When's the best time to buy a bird?
- I don't know. When's the best time?

When it's going "cheep!"
Don't say I never gave you anything.
Ow! Don't! I'm trying to drive!
Don't do that! Oh, no!
If it goes out the window, I won't stop.
Don't! What are these? Hair grips?
# Civilisation
# No, no, no, no
# I'll stay right here
Look! They have Magic Fingers.
I need to shower.
Give me a quarter and a dime.
What for?
For the Magic Fingers.
My magic fingers aren't enough?
# Amor-r-r, amor-r-r, amor-r-r-r-r
# This w-word s-so s-sweet that I r-repeat
# Means I adore you-u-u-u-u
# Amor-r-r-r-r, amor-r-r-r-r, amor-r-r-r-r...
Good shower for once, Lo!
First-rate temperature control!
Ow! Argh!
- Agh! Lo!
- Hmm?

My God, Lo! Don't flush when I'm in here!
What is that?
What's what?
That thing in your mouth.
It's a jawbreaker.
It's supposed to break your jaw.
Want one?

Just give it to me.
I've had it with that noise.

- Come on, spit it out. I've got a headache.
- It's good!

Look, just give it to me, will you?
Spit it out.

You look a hundred per cent better
when I can't see you.

We took a circuitous route -
to put it mildly.

In the back of my mind
was our eventual destination.

Beardsley College, where I would finally
take up my teaching position.

But in the front of my mind was
the need to keep going, keep driving.

Lo, that's the last time
I let you drive this car.

Serve into this square.
And, despite our tiffs,...
In the square, Lo.
Try and get it in the square.

..despite the fuss she made, and
the danger and hopelessness of it all,...

Aim for my head.
..despite all that, I was in paradise.
A paradise whose skies
were the colour of hell flames,...

..but a paradise still.
I know you have accepted a post
at Beardsley College,...

..and I know that there,
academics are first, last and always.

Well, that's not us, Mr Himmler.
Uh... Here at Beardsley Prep,...
..what we stress are the three Ds.
Dramatics, dancing and dating.
Now, I know that the Reverend Rigger is
behind us on this. Aren't you, Reverend?

- All the way, Miss Pratt. Every inch.
- So you see, Mr Humper,...

..for the modern preadolescent, medieval
dates are less vital than weekend ones.

- What? Weekend what?
- Dates, Mr Humping.

Uh... boys.
# By myself alone at home
# Feelin' blue
I was not quite prepared
for the reality of my dual role.

On the one hand,
the willing corrupter of an innocent,...

..and on the other,
Humbert the happy housewife.

Where's the river Rhine?
I don't know.
You should know that.
- Why?
- Big battles there in the Great War.

Where's the river Seine?
I don't know.
I thought you were supposed
to have learnt these.

It's not what I'm on.
It seems to be pretty relaxed,
this school of yours.

# When I was a kid about half past three
# My ma said
"Daughter, come here to me"

# Says "Things may come
and things may go"

# "But this is one thing
you ought to know"

# "Oh, t'ain't what you do,
it's the way that you do it"

# "T'ain't what you do,
it's the way that you do it"

# "T'ain't what you do,
it's the way that you do it"

# "That's what...
I'm supposed to be in a play.
- What play?
- I don't know.

Some play.
At school.
With the boys from Butler's Academy?
I don't know.
I don't think it's a good idea.
You're depriving me of my civil rights.
Where did you learn that language?
I'm intelligent.
I have a right to be in a play if I want.
Not if I say you don't.
D'you like that?
You want more, don't you?
I want things, too.
You know how my allowance
is a dollar a week?

Yes, I know.
Well, I think it should be two dollars.
I said, I think it should be two dollars.
A dollar fifty.
I really do think it should be two dollars.
Am I right?
Am I right?
God, yes.
Two dollars.
And I get to be in the play.
Oh, rosy mistress of the night.
You have enchanted
many a hunter's heart.

But this time, my temptress,...
..you have met your match.
For far more than a hunter,...
..am a poet.
- The night has fallen, Rodrigo.
- The...

Hold it! Hold it! Mona...
Give us a moment.
I'd like a word with Dolores.

When you say "your larking charms",
use your charms for the hunter.

Because you're the witch.
You're bringing the hunter to your lair.
- Hi, Mr Humbert.
- Hello, Mona.

Some play, huh?
You're nymphs.
Use your nymph's charms.

Seduce the hunter.
Look. See right there?
That's the actual playwright, Clare Quilty.
Can you believe it?

Let the music transform you.
You'll feel that you've become a witch.
- You're a witch!
- This play any good, Mona?
- Yeah. It's very political.

Witch! Witch!
More wind! More wind!
You're a witch!
Aren't you?
More wind! I need more wind!
The witches now! The witches' dance!
In the wind!
As she grew cooler
towards my advances,...

..l became accustomed
to purchasing her favours.

Where she hid the money, I never knew.
Stop it!
I was convinced she was storing it away
in order to finance her escape from me.

You can't expect me to pay extra
in the middle!

Ow! Argh!
She's a lovely child, Mr Haze,...
..but the onset of sexual maturing
seems to be giving her trouble.

- Isn't that your observation, Reverend?
- To the tee, Miss Pratt.

So, you see, it is the general impression
that 14-year-old Dolores...

..is morbidly disinterested
in sexual matters.

Does she never speak
about these... matters?

That's just it.
What's just it?
That's... just it.
She hasn't said anything.
She hasn't breathed a word.
Uh... But who has?
Are... Are you saying that I've...
This is a very serious matter.
What we're trying to say to you...
..is that someone in the family,...
..maybe you,...
This is very difficult for me.
Well, let me put it this way.
Someone in the family
ought to instruct that dear child...

..in the process of human reproduction.
I'm so sorry.
- I'm so sorry.
- I see that I've embarrassed you.

Yet you, as her father,
ought to take the matter well in hand.

Yes. Worry not, Miss Pratt.
I... um... I have... this matter in hand.
Oh, well,...
..that's all I need to say.
Oh, yes?
She missed?
How are the piano lessons going?
Great. Excellent. Wonderful.
Terrif. Perfect.
Especially since you missed the last two.
Where were you?
Where was l?
I should have told you before.
I was in the park.
I was rehearsing the play with Mona.

That's your story?
That's what I was doing.
OK. Give me Mona's phone number.
- Mona's phone number?
- Just give me Mona's phone number.

Klausen 57241.
Is Mona there, please?
- Mona, this is Dolores's father.
- Oh, hello, sir.

Mona, were you and Dolores...
..rehearsing the play in the park
for the past two Tuesday afternoons?

Um... Let's see.
The last two Tuesdays?
One of them, Mona, was yesterday.
You know, sir, that's... absolutely right.
I feel awfully bad about it.
I alone am to blame, sir.
The whole rehearsing in the park thing
was my idea.

We did it cos we didn't want
to get on your nerves.

Did she confirm?
She did.
And I've no doubt
she'd been well instructed by you.

In fact, I've no doubt
you've told her all about us.

Look, Lo, this has got to stop.
I don't know what you're up to,
but whatever it is,...

..I'll yank you out of Beardsley as fast as
I can pack a suitcase unless this stops!

Unless what stops?
- You know what!
- Take it easy, mister!

- Show me every penny...
- Leave me alone, you pervert!

- You're running away from me, I know.
- Yes, I am! Anyone'd run away from you!

- Show me what you hid!
- I earned that money!

Go ahead, murder me.
Like you murdered my mother.

I'm sorry.
Murder me like you murdered my mother!
Shut up. Shut up!
Murder me like you murdered my mother!
- Stop that!
- Go ahead! Murder me!

Go on, murder me!
I'm asking you to murder me!

- Shut up!
- Murder me! Murder me!

- Dolores, shut up!
- I hate you! I hate you!

Calm down.
- Calm down!
- Come back, Lo!
I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
I'm sorry! I'm sorry! I'm sorry!
I do not know who you people think
you are, screaming and carrying on!

My daughter's friend.
I'm sorry. I really can't stay.

Oh, good. I was just trying
to reach you at home.

- I've come to a decision.
- You have?

So buy me a drink.
What would you like?
Um... I'd like, uh, ice-cream soda...
..with extra chocolate syrup.
Nothing for me, thanks.
So tell me.
What's the rush?
Pay her and let's blow this joint.
And do you know what she said,...
..this girl who had been spurning me,
mocking me,...

..plotting her escape from me
only hours before?

She said she wanted
to leave Beardsley then and there.

She wanted to take another trip,...
..only this time she would choose
where we would go.

- OK? I choose? OK?
- Yes.

Did Humbert hum his assent?
Oh, yes.
I sealed my fate gratefully.
Take me to bed.
Look out for cigarette hangover.
Hi. I'm Clare Quilty.
Remember, over a million smokers...
So we have to be in...
..Wace in exactly one week.
But why Wace in a week?
Cos we gotta see the... ceremonial dances
when they open the Magic Caves.

And... exactly two weeks
and four days later,...

..we have to arrive in Elphinstone. See?
That's where we climb the Red Rock.
We have to climb this rock
exactly two weeks and four days later?

Oh, I'm so excited.
I cannot tell you the exact day I first knew
for certain that we were being followed.

Lo, reach into the glove compartment
and get the pad and pencil.

Got it? Now write this down.
How do you spell that?
C- O-N-N.
Is that it?
No. Now write down...
All right, give it to me.
All right.
Put it in the glove box.
Don't put gum on it cos it'll get...

Why have you got your gum everywhere?
Put that in the glove box.
There's a detective following us.
He looks rather like my Uncle Gustave.
He was clever, our pursuer.
He kept changing cars.
But his presence was as real to me...
..as my own breath.
Then suddenly he would disappear
and I'd wonder if I'd imagined everything.

Lo! What did that man say to you?
# Bags around your eyeballs
which is red instead of white

- What did he say to you?
- The guy I was talking to?

- Yeah. Look...
- # Shucks, I shoulda known...

Just tell me what he said to you.
He asked me if I had a map.
He must've been lost.

# My heart's plumb gone
# Cos you used temptation
# It'd be thrilling... if'n you're willing
Look, I've told you about
talking to strangers. You've no idea...

Lo, listen to me.
You're very young
and people can take advantage of you.

Very hard to imagine.
That man was the cop
who's been following us.

You have to tell me
exactly what you told him.

If he really is a cop, the worst thing
we can do is let him know we're scared.

Then he'll know that we're guilty.
Or rather, that you're guilty.
# Don't sit under the apple tree
with anyone else but me...

# With anyone else but me
# With anyone else but me, no, no, no
# With anyone else but me, no, no, no
# Anyone else but you
# No, no, don't go under the apple tree
There's something wrong
with the steering.

Oh, whoa!
Ow! Watch it!
What are you doing?!
You got a flat, mister.
# Open the door, and let me in
# Richard, why don't you open the door?
