ch knife. maude, come here. maude, will you come here? has it occurred to you that she may just be in trouble? oh, come on, walter. the child's only 16. almost 17. just because she comes from the ghetto, doesn't mean that she knows... francie, are you with child? no, i came here alone! he's been beating me! oh, no, francie! you mean he went upside your head? mrs. findlay, you'll understand better if we talk white people's talk. he's beating the hell out of me! francie! hello, everybody! better late than never. maude, i could just strangle you-- not now, vivian, please-- what's the big idea of making us rush over here like this? - vivian, please! - just look at my hair, it's a disaster.

oh, ow! honey, what's the matter? oh, it's nothing. just a little bruise. a little bruise? francie, let me look at it-- no! uh, they took care of it in the emergency ward already. ( sobs ) my father did it. that's why i'm running away from home. oh, francie, running away? honey, what about your mother? oh, she wanted to come along, too. but she's 53, she's too slow. maude... i found out what's troubling the child. she is running away from home because of her father's beatings. oh, come on, francie. why would your father beat you? poor misguided honky. walter, you know nothing about the child's environment. she's a victim of the battered child syndrome. i read all about it in mccall's. as a matter of fact, i think i may still have the article.
macaroni." maude, walter, let's go! we'll miss all the pre-show activities in the lobby. arthur harmon! francie is more important than watching doc severinsen put his mouthpiece in a time capsule. we're missing that? darn it, maudie, hurry up! look, francie, dear, you can tell me. now, your father, the one who beats you, had he been drinking? yeah...oh, h-how did you know? oh, this afternoon he came home bloodshot from head to toe. he slammed the door so hard the lights went on. that's when he hit me. but why? that's when he saw me. then he picked up my brother's little league baseball bat, the one we use to stun the roaches. oh, yes, yes, of course. maude, i wanna talk to you. come here. maude, will you come with me? i wanna talk to you.
maude, there isn't one shred of evidence that she's telling the truth! walter, francie loves me. she would not lie to me. a baseball bat to stun the roaches? yeah, that's why they're such good hitters. maude, walter, we're gonna wait in the car. arthur-- if you're not out there in five minutes, after all you've put us through, we're leaving without you, and that's that. nobody's gonna spoil my evening. uh...by the by, old buddy, since we're your guests tonight, eh, could you let me have the tickets you bought for us? sure, old buddy. thanks, chum. now, i mean it! five minutes or we're leaving without you, and that's final. i'm sorry, walter. eh--eh--it occurred to me it must have sounded very unreasonable what i said. why should i put you on a five-minute deadline?
give my regards to broadway. what do you mean, give your regards to broadway? we're going to the theatre! not as long as that child is in trouble, we're not going. all right, francie. now, you tell me, dear, what can we do - to help you-- - maude! all she's asking for is a little love and understanding! and 300 dollars. and 300 doll-- 300 dollars? aha... the money's just a loan, so i can start a new life. i wanna go live with my friend in los angeles. an adult. francie, you're only 16! almost 17! i can't go back home to my father. he'll kill me. well, you're right, you don't have much of a choice. oh...little francie potter, all grown up and starting a new life. oh...seems like only yesterday she was a little tiny baby.
how would you like to hold your breath that long? now, look, francie, we're going to give you a start, - aren't we, walter? - no. he's such a tease. look, francie, dear, why don't you help yourself? after your beating, you must be hungry. oh, good, you're calling the police. - no, the potters. - you can't do that, walter. maude! that child's running away from home is breaking up a family oh, hello mr. potter? this is walter findlay. listen, your daughter's here, and we have theatre tickets and we want-- mr. potter, you're a beast. someday, when you sober up, you'll thank me for this. his breath reeks of liquor even on the phone. you're making a big mistake! francie, dear, you are going to get your $300, and that's a promise. - maude! - oh, come on now, walter! she's going there to live with an adult. it's not like she'll be alone.
- not nearly enough! - oh, well, arthur usually has a lot of cash. possibly, between him and viv, and you and i-- we'll--we'll get you the money, dear. now, why don't you just sit down, and enjoy yourself, and we'll be back right after the theatre with the money. and if we hurry, maybe we can still catch one of johnny carson's ex-wives. hinkley, come on in! we're gonna get the $300, and we've got the whole house to ourselves! you say! what you say! how could you leave the headlights on again? this is the fourth time this year that you've killed my battery. walter, will you quit crying long enough to call the automobile club? just mention my name, they'll understand. francie and hinkley: ? california here we come! ? ? california-- ? ( laugh ) f-f-francie!
oh, walter, don't you see? - they are young and they're in love! - maude! mr. findlay, you heard her. she said she first got married when she was 17. that's different, she was making a career out of it. now, francie, honey, even though you're almost 17, i mean, you--you-- i don't think you know what you're doing. francie, you can't just run off, with no thought, no plan-- oh, oh! that's the part i was saving for last. hinkley planned for our future,
and we're gonna go to hollywood and record for motown. mo who? motown. it's a record company. me and hinkley's a group. the electric shortcake. - oh! - juicy. you mean you're the electric fruitcake. go to hollywood, make a million dollars overnight-- come on! we don't expect to become millionaires overnight. it's a long hard grind. it's gonna take us maybe two, three weeks. that long? well, sure. i mean, you can't just rush into these things, even when you got talent, like me and hinkley. hey, come on, hinkley. let's show' em. okay. i'm the only rock 'n' roll spoon player in the world. huh! - you ready? - yeah. a-one, a-two, a-one, two, three...
? he stuck a feather in his hat ? ? and called it macaroni ? ? yankee doodle, tweet, tweet, tweet ? ? yankee doodle ? ? tweet, tweet, tweet ? ( whistles ) hold it! maude... i like 'em! wait a second... has anybody in the record business ever heard you play? no, man, but that's what's so cool. we're total unknowns! can i see you in the kitchen? ? yankee doodle tweet, tweet, tweet ?
but, walter, who are we to say? i mean, the closest we've ever come to rock 'n' roll is the mormon tabernacle choir. maude, they don't have a chance! oh, walter, who knows? for instance, who would ever have dreamed that frankie laine would make all that money singing mule train? ? mule train, ha ? ? clippety-clop clippety-clop ? ? clippety clippety clopping along ? - ? ha, ha ? - maude... - ? ha, clop, clop ? - maude... maude! that's not frankie laine out there! that's a couple of kids caught up in a hollywood fantasy! oh, walter, wait-- no more waiting! look, i'm sorry, kids, but we're not giving you a nickel. - walter! - but mrs. findlay promised. you're right, mrs. findlay promised, and mrs. findlay is going to give you her own money. maude, i forbid it! walter, she has no alternative! she's a little child from the ghetto, she can't go home, and she's too short to play center for the harlem globetrotters. maude! walter!
- oh, yeah, ain't it cool? - yeah. maude, if you insist on giving her money, i'm warning you, as your husband, i'll have to take the proper action. oh, what are you going to do, walter? beat me, hit me, like francie's father? i'll--i-- i'll call a cop! ( doorbell rings ) i think francie is entitled to this one chance at happiness, and i am gonna make sure that she never has to meet that drunken monster father of hers again. i'm francie's father. - walter: maude, let him in! - ( banging on door ) - no. - you called my father! you called her father? listen, i'll wait in the kitchen till cooler heads prevail, okay? it's a pleasure to meet you, mr. potter. francie, you're coming home with me, right now. don't you dare lay a hand on her helpless head, you...drunken sot! what did you say? how dare you inflict your mindless cruelties on this innocent child?
woman, will you shut up?! walter... walter, did you hear what this monster actually said to me? yes, he said, "woman, will you shut up?" a very common expression frequently heard in our bedroom. i don't know where you got the idea that i drink. i've got an ulcer. have you ever heard of anybody getting drunk on maalox? and what's this about me beating up on my girl? francie, i never hit you! well, only because you was afraid you'd kill me. francie, you lied to me. i had to. the truth wouldn't have been worth $300. - now, look here! - wait a minute! me first. walter, pour mr. potter a maalox.
but you do that anyway-- that's beside the point. i trusted you, because i thought you were my friend. well, friends like you are a dime a dozen, and they're overpriced. who needs it? walter, call a cab. we're going to the theatre. i'm sorry, mrs. findlay. really, i am. i didn't want to lie to you. oh, sure you didn't. no, no, hinkley said that if i didn't get the money for him, he wouldn't marry me and take me to california. enough to let a ding-a-ling like hinkley talk you into a thing like this? hinkley's no ding-a-ling. you're right, honey. you're the ding-a-ling. i mean, letting him talk you into... doing something against your better judgment just because you were afraid that was the only way you could hang on to him? hinkley's gone. no, he's not. he wouldn't go without me.
i guess i am the ding-a-ling. um...mr. potter... would you excuse us for a minute? you know, girl talk. i'm sorry, daddy. francie, i'll wait for you out in the car. oh, francie... ( sighs ) boy, the hinkleys in our lives really hurt, don't they? ame for them... stinkers. course, i could talk to you, woman to woman, and tell you that we do get over them, but that wouldn't make you feel any better, would it? i just hope the next time you contemplate one of these whoopee trips, that you come and we talk it over first. ( sobs )
well...that's show business. well, maude...looks like she learned a lesson. oh, wrong, walter. bless her heart, she's still lying through her teeth. all that boy has to do is rattle his spoons and she'll be off like a shot. just hope hinkley's really gone for good. oh, don't worry, maude. i'm positive he's gone off to pursue his musical career. how can you be sure? when he left, he took every damn spoon in the kitchen. that's show business.
? donny hathaway: ? lady godiva was a freedom rider ? women: ? ooh ooh ooh... ? ? she didn't care if the whole world looked ? ? joan of arc with the lord to guide her ? ? ooh ooh ooh... ? ? she was a sister who really cooked ? ? ooh ooh... ? ? isadora was the first bra burner ? ? ain't you glad she showed up? ? ? oh, yeah ? was fallin' apart ? ? betsy ross got it all sewed up ? ? and then there's maude ? ? and then there's maude ? ? and then there's maude ? ? and then there's maude ? ? and then there's maude ? ? and then there's maude ? ? and then there's ? ? that uncompromisin', enterprisin' ? ? anything but tranquilizin' ? all: ? right on maude! ? ( motor whirring ) well, walter, did you ask arthur
when he mowed it at 2:00 last night? yes, maude, i asked him. ( whirring stops ) and what did he say? he said, "it's grown since then." now i know what he was doing between two and eight-- fertilizing. well, i'm worried about him. he's been acting jittery all week. it's like he's been trying to tell me something. something's been gnawing at him. maybe it's vivian. her front teeth have been looking sharper lately. maudie, walter... about last night. there's something i gotta tell you. what is it, arthur? nothing. good-bye. arthur! now, come on. what's on your mind? on my mind? nothing, forget it. there's never anything on my mind. ugh. that is the worst coffee i have ever tasted. that's because it's orange juice. this one's my coffee.
arthur, will you please tell me what's bothering you? all right! maudie, you'll have to leave the room. arthur, when i have to leave the room, i will raise my hand. arthur, what's your problem?! well, it's--it's-- it's--it's--it's--it's-- it's--it's--it's-- it's--it's--it's what? i can't tell you. of course you can! arthur, you know you can tell us anything. all right. now, promise you won't laugh. we won't laugh. of course not. it's john wayne. john wayne? john wayne. he's coming to my house this afternoon. ( both laughing ) ? ?
their faces in the morning when i wake them up. the first thing you think about is your wife and your kids and your family. you think about what life would be like for them, without you. so i had surgery locally, and it came back after my follow up that i needed a second surgery. and that's when i said i need a second opinion. from the moment i walked through the doors, they greet you, they're smiling and i love the fact that they included me in the whole it makes you feel like you're part of the family. rod came in with ah, pretty advanced cancer and i remember thinking, he's just like me, he's like my twin. we're almost the same age, the same height- he's much more athletic- but almost the same life circumstances as far as having kids and raising a family, he just happens to have cancer. for rod, we combined chemotherapy, radiation and surgery in order to shrink the tumor,
i feel like this was the right way for me, and the right treatment for me, and the right process for me to go through. the diagnosis of cancer is one of those things that you want an answer now. we can do now here, and that is something that they appreciate because we match the sense of urgency that they have. if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with cancer, start your treatment with a team of experts who only treat cancer, every stage, every day. it's not one thing we do, it's the only thing we do. call or visit cancercenter.com for more information. it's a new normal for me right now, makes you appreciate the little things in life. every moment counts. the evolution of cancer care is here. cancer treatment centers of america.
what is the matter with you people? ( coughs) i cross my heart. john wayne, hollywood's biggest star, is gonna be in my home. okay, arthur, i believe you. but why would he possibly be coming to your house? well... we're good friends, me and duke. yeah, that's what all his friends call him--"duke." you and john wayne are friends? uh, tell me, arthur, take a herd to abilene? i knew it. i knew it the second that you heard that that acid tongue of yours would start flapping. arthur, in the 35 years that i've known you, never once have you mentioned being friends with john wayne. well, he doesn't run around hollywood saying he's a friend of mine either. the man belongs in a home, walter. arthur...
not "the duke," just plain "duke." all right, arthur. when was the last time you saw just plain duke? well, actually, uh, it was, uh... ( mumbles ) never. never. never. you've never met john wayne? no wonder you're such good friends. he's gone, walter, gone. how could john wayne be a friend of yours if you never met? well, i wrote him a letter once. it's not important. actually, we're pen pals. arthur, you mean a fan letter! it wasn't a fan letter. i just told him how wonderful i thought he was. arthur, i don't believe this. no wonder you're too embarrassed to tell us. you're nothing but a star-struck, adolescent, john wayne groupie. how long have you been writing to john wayne? just once a week. for how long, arthur? well...
r had an answer. see, here it is, right here. see? take a gander at that! ( chuckles ) it's real, maude. it's a real letter from john wayne. and not only that-- but because i am his number-one fan-- tonight, he's taking vivian and me to the premiere of his new movie brannigan. ( chuckles ) oh, arthur, honey, i don't want your feelings to be hurt, but, don't you see, john wayne isn't coming here to visit you. this is a publicity gimmick for his new movie. i don't care. if old john boy wants me to help send his movie over the top, i'm only too proud to serve. what is it, arthur, a war movie? no, i doubt that, walter. john wayne's already won all the wars. you're darn tootin.' in brannigan, he's a policeman from chicago who goes to london to catch a crook, and they're trying to kill him. who? the screen actors guild?
lter over to my place for lunch so that you could meet john wayne in person. but now you'll just have to stand outside on the curb and wave a flag like the rest of the neighborhood! walter: wait a minute, arthur, i didn't say anything! arthur! i still can't believe the whole thing, but, of course, i want to meet john wayne! i'd love to meet john wayne! john wayne? carol, i know it's gonna sound a little crazy to you, too, but john wayne's coming to arthur's for lunch today! really? arthur: yeah. oh, arthur, can i come over and meet him? and phillip! phillip will flip out meeting john wayne. you hear that, maudie, you hear that?! the rest of your family is dying to meet john wayne. at least they recognize a great actor. great actor? arthur, i know four people who show more emotion than john wayne, and they're all on mount rushmore. let me tell you something, maudie--
i will never forget him in allegheny uprising. you remember? remember? when he came through the swinging doors into the saloon? go ahead, arthur, what'd he say?! he didn't say anything! that is great acting. laurence olivier would've had to say something. something like, "why isn't john wayne doing this lousy picture?" come on, maude, you should jump at the chance to meet john wayne! oh, now, wait a minute! walter, i can understand this of arthur, but you-- you can't expect me to have lunch with a man
that is mr. conservative himself. oh, come on, maude, i don't care anything about his politics. he's a tradition! do you know how many saturday mornings i spent with that man? i grew up with john wayne. i spent thousands of hours in dark theaters loving that man! so what? i spent thousands of hours in dark theaters loving lots of men. for crying out loud. i did a lot of that in dark theaters, too. the least you could do, maude, is come to arthur's... ( explosion ) oh! holy jumping-- that was a bad one. enough with those sonic booms. boy, it's a wonder that all the windows in the place didn't get shattered! are you okay, maude? i'm fine, darling. arthur, arthur. arthur, our ceiling just fell! arthur, there's plaster all over the living room! oh, and, arthur, all your toby mugs got broken. oh, no! oh, arthur. this is terrible, terrible! well, it's just a miracle that i'm here. luckily, i was standing under the archway at the time.
two little steps to the left-- vivian, i can hear that story another time! how am i gonna entertain duke? good gravy, i've alerted the local press, the tuckahoe drum and bugle corps is coming! where am i gonna find another place on such short notice? maudie, did i ever mention to you that you're a marvelously beautiful woman? oh, no, you don't! then, i take it back! half this house is mine! you got the house, arthur. no, no, no, no, no! now, wait-- wait a minute, wait a minute! you know that john wayne and i are as different as night and day! how can you expect me to let anybody that conservative walk through that door? horse feathers! i'm much more conservative than john wayne, and i walk in this house all the time. by the way, reminds me-- get out!!! arthur, the house is yours! ( whistle blows )
would you say no to a lot more money?

( gasps ) oh, maude, i left the turkey salad in your fridge. isn't this exciting?! oh, and i left a note on our door telling duke where we are. what's the matter, couldn't he pick up your trail? and, luckily, i remembered to bring this. it's arthur's prized possession.
"an american duke on a london bridge." ( giggles ) it's--it's beautiful, viv, but that's not the right place for it. i have the perfect spot. oh! ( doorbell rings ) this way, gang! ( all yelling at once ) wait! wait! i'll sign something. i'll sign something. hold it, everybody, hold it! that's not john wayne. can't you see he's too short? don't look at me! walter, listen... walter, what happened to your bald spot? walter, your bald spot is covered with black fuzz. it's the latest thing in hairpieces, maude! ben, my barber, loaned it to me so i'd look good for duke. walter, it's the year of kojak. bald is beautiful. arthur: hey, it's just about time, everybody!

( cheering ) i don't believe this! i do not believe it. have you all lost your sense of values? ( stutters ) a movie star is a movie star. john wayne is no different from donald duck, except he's not quite as good an actor.

( giggles ) you see, phillip, there's nothing to talk about. i loved what you had to say against women in that speech at harvard, duke. oh, well, i didn't say anything against women. all i said was that i thought they had a right to work anyplace they wanted to as long as they had dinner on the table when i got home.
