Lady St. Edmund: So, after you left, we examined the fireplace. There was a loose stone...

Casey Brown: You're kiddin'?

Lady St. Edmund: And there was something hidden in the canopy behind it.

[takes out a small, shiny box from behind her back]

Lady St. Edmund: Do you recognize this?

Casey Brown: No.

Lady St. Edmund: Look closer, dear. Are you sure you've never seen it? It's very important!

Casey Brown: No. No. Although...

[begins to whistle the first notes of a tune, then opens the box, which turns out to be a music box that completes the melody]

Lady St. Edmund: Oh, my dear. Oh, my dear!... Welcome to Candleshoe!

[embraces Casey, crying]

Casey Brown: [Casey has told everyone at Candleshoe the real reason for her arrival and what she has discovered thus far. They are all at the graveyard looking at the headstone] ... And this was the last clue. He followed the Eclipse for riches and fame...

Priory: And if ye would prosper, do ye the same. What does it mean?

Lady St. Edmund: Why, it's very simple. The Eclipse was a ship. Captain Joshua's ship. There's a picture of it in the house, of Captain Joshua accepting the surrender of a Spanish vessel on the Spanish main. Dear Lord, well, that's the clue! Come on everyone! It's hanging in the hall!

Priory: Um, my Lady!

Lady St. Edmund: [remembers] It's not hanging in the hall...

Lady St. Edmund: [Lady St. Edmund has called an emergency meeting with Mr. Thresher] You sold it, Mr. Thresher, you sold my painting?

Mr. Thresher: Well, my lady, it was my painting. You sold to me, that is, well, Mr. Priory sold it to me, that is...

Priory: Mr. Thresher, we certaintly have no quams with the sale, but we must get a look at it. So if you would, please tell us who you sold it to,and where is it now?

Mr. Thresher: Ah, I sold it to an elderly woman only yesterday. She said, that Captain Joshua reminded her of her father...

Lady St. Edmund: Another pirate, no doubt.

Mr. Thresher: I packaged it up, myself. It's leaving on the 12:20 for London!

Priory: 12:20. Thank you Mr. Thresher. Come along, everyone. We must get to the station!

Casey Brown: But, it's 12:15 now!

Priory: That train never leaves on time, if we hurry we should just make it.

Casey Brown: [Jenkins has caught Casey as she is trying to flee the apartment] Let go of me! I'm a minor!

Casey Brown: You creeps! You lousy creeps! Sold me out to the cops, huh?

Mrs. McCress: Shut up!

[to Jenkins]

Mrs. McCress: Well, this is her!

Casey Brown: [Casey is again grabbed by Jenkins, who examines her shoulderblade and forehead, looking at the scars. Satisfied that Casey is the one he is looking for, he tosses a large envelope of money on the table. Mr. McCress greedily opens the envelope and begins counting]

Mrs. McCress: [hands a suitcase to Jenkins] Here's the rest of her stuff.

Lady St. Edmund: I don't suppose your experience with family life has been a happy one.

Casey Brown: What family life? Tell ya, the only thing i remember about family life is nothing. Zero. One foster dump to another. I mean who really cares about a kid you take in just for the welfare money and the food stamps? I mean who really cares? It's a racket, just like anything else. The whole world's a racket. First thing i ever learned. you get up out of bed in the morning with your dukes up. You got 'em up, first punch is yours.

Lady St. Edmund: I see.

Casey Brown: Yeah, well, maybe you do and maybe you don't.

Lady St. Edmund: But you can't go through life alone.

Casey Brown: I ain't alone. I got me. Listen, if you don't hand it out you don't have to worry about not getting it back.

Lady St. Edmund: Priory!

Lady St. Edmund: My Lady?

Casey Brown: Gagh!

[puts down the spoon]

Harry Bundage: Eat it!

Casey Brown: I can't! I've had enough! Uh...

[looks for a place to dump the rice pudding out]

Lady St. Edmund: Strawberries, shortbread, rice pudding? I must say, that was very unscrupulous of you, Priory.

Priory: Quite right, My Lady. Most unscrupulous.

Lady St. Edmund: We'll just let things take their course, shall we, Priory?

Priory: [bows] Very good.

[both men stare at Casey]

Casey Brown: Who's this joker?

Harry Bundage: [walks up to Casey, roughly looks at her scars on her forehead and shoulderblade]

Jenkins: The markings are just the way you described them!

Harry Bundage: Yes!

[turns back to Casey]

Harry Bundage: Where did you get those scars?

Casey Brown: [sarcastically] Rudolph Valentino beat me 'cuz I wouldn't marry 'em!

Harry Bundage: [slaps Casey across the face] That's the last time you sass me! Now! Where did those scars come from?

Casey Brown: I don't remember.

[Harry raises his hand to slap Casey again, Casey flinches]

Harry Bundage: Just keep on, not remembering!

[throws a box on the table next to the sink]

Harry Bundage: Put those on!

[turns to Jenkins]

Harry Bundage: Excellent work, Mr. Jenkins! I'm very pleased!

Jenkins: Good, good! Will there be anything else, Mr. Bundage?

Lady St. Edmund: [Lady St. Edmund and Casey have gone into the garden to look for the gardener, Mr. Gidding] Gidding? Gidding?

[see the gardener bent over a rose bush, trimming it]

Lady St. Edmund: Mr. Gidding! I would have a word with you. I thought I made it quite clear that there were to be fresh roses on the landing every morning!

Priory: [disguised as Mr. Gidding, the gardener] Your orders? I don't give a hoot en hoot about your orders, the roses come first!

Lady St. Edmund: Oh, do they indeed? You know, you used to be a good, pleasant gardener. But in recent years, you have become fairly tiresome and crotchety!

Priory: Oh, that's the way, is it? Crotchety, am I? If I known we going to thoroughly examine my character, I would have washed my hands and put on my Sunday best!

Lady St. Edmund: Gidding! We are discussing the roses!

Priory: Now, that's enough of that! You two go off and toodle over the property and I'll take care of what I do best!

Lady St. Edmund: Mr. Gidding!

Priory: Here here! Now see here, I'll trim my roses as I see fit!

Lady St. Edmund: Your roses? Very well. If that is your attitude, you are dismissed!

[nods for effect, and her and Casey walk away]

Lady St. Edmund: Priory? Priory!

Priory: [rushes back into the house through the back entrance. The kids are there waiting] Quick, help!

[the children help Priory to get out of his disguise and back into his butler uniform]

Priory: Get the boots, get the boots!

Peter: [Priory has his butler uniform back on and is about to answer Lady St. Edmund] Psst! Psst!

[Priory looks back, Peter points to his eyebrows and mouths the word Eyebrows, meaning Priory still has the fake ones on]

Peter: .

Priory: [Priory quickly takes them off and stuffs them in his pocket, then puts the stale bread bag on the tray he is carrying] Yes, My Lady?

Lady St. Edmund: [breathing heavily] Oh Priory! I have dismissed Gidding. I wish him packed and out of here by this evening!

Priory: I see. Do you think that decision might have been a little rash, My Lady?

Lady St. Edmund: Certaintly not! He was impertanant!

Priory: Oh, that's just his way, My Lady. And may I say, he would be very hard, for me to replace.

Lady St. Edmund: He would?

Priory: Very hard. And I would ensure that he had fresh roses on the landing, every morning.

Lady St. Edmund: You would? Well, I suppose I, might give him one more chance. But you may tell him, that this is positively his last!

Priory: Yes, My Lady. Oh, My Lady, the stale bread.

[hands Lady St. Edmund the bag]

Lady St. Edmund: Oh, thank you, Priory.

Cluny: Listen, you're up to something.

[steps closer]

Cluny: I want to know what it is.

Lady St. Edmund: Please play the gramophone record, Priory, and you and I will waltz.

Priory: Oh no, my lady, absolutely not.

Lady St. Edmund: I insist.

Priory: Oh no, my lady, it wouldn't be appropriate.

Lady St. Edmund: Would it be appropriate if I were to dance with Col. Dennis? I'm sure he dances better than he rides.

[pause]

Lady St. Edmund: You did him very well Priory.

Priory: You knew?

Lady St. Edmund: We were playing games with time, you and I. And I thank you for it.

Priory: My lady, I'm terribly embarrassed.

Lady St. Edmund: You needn't be. I'm very grateful. For your splendid talent, and even more for your compasssion. And now if you please, the gramophone record.

Lady St. Edmund: I don't mind in the least that you lied to me when you first came to Candleshoe. But I would be very hurt if you lied to me now. Do you really want to go back to Los Angeles?

Casey Brown: [Casey begins to cry and is embarassed] I've never cried in my life.

Lady St. Edmund: Then I think it's time that you did. Come on, my dear. We're going home.
