Jake: ...bute not to tell our maw.



Joe: and when we told her,

she giv'd us a whuppin'.



Remus:  Lawzy, Miss

Sally, Johnny didn't mean no harm.



Remus: He was jes' trying to be like

Brer Rabbit. I tol' him a tale 'bout de



Remus: tar baby an' he just got a li'l bit too

bodacious, and outreached hisse'f, dat's all.



Sally: Uncle Remus, i'm trying my best to bring up

Johnny to be obedient and truthful. But you and your



Sally: stories are making that very difficult. I think maybe

it would be better if he didn't hear any more for awhile.



Remus: Well, Miss Sally,

de stories ain't done no....



Sally: They only confuse him. Now I know you

mean well, Uncle Remus, but Johnny's too young.



Remus: Miss Sally.....



Sally: I'll have to ask you

not to tell him any more.



Remus: Yassum, Miss Sally......



Sally: But what else could I have done, mama? I

can't just overlook it, he has to learn to mind.



Doshy: That's very true, but without

Uncle Remus and his stories,



Doshy: the child will be utterly desolate.

He needs something to hold on to.



Sally: Well, he has his

mother....and his grandmother.



Doshy: We're not enough, sally. The boy must have

friends. And if it's not Uncle Remus, or the Favers



Doshy: children, then it must be someone else....

someone of his own age. That's just good common sense.



Tempy: What you trackin' through here for anyway?

Ain't I done tol' you 'bout messin' 'roun' my kitchen?



Sally: Johnny!



Johnny: Yes, mama.



Sally: Do you know what next tuesday is?



Johnny: Uh...of course. My birthday.



Sally: That's right, dear.

And what happens then?



Johnny: I get presents.



Sally: And a birthday

party. Would you like that?



Johnny: A party? Sure!



Sally: With lots of nice

little boys and girls.



Johnny: Can i ask Ginny?



Sally: Well, there'll be so

many other children, dear...



Doshy: ...That one more

won't make any difference.



Johnny: Gee! Thanks! Will daddy come?



Sally: Well, dear...uh...I'll

write and ask him.



Johnny: Oh boy.



Johnny: Teenchy! Here Teenchy!



Johnny: Teenchy! Here Teenchy!

Teenchy! Where are you?



Johnny: Uncle Remus? A present

for Teenchy! Where's Teenchy?



Remus: He's gone.



Johnny: Gone? Then we gotta find him. Sump'n

might happen to him... if he runs around loose.



Remus: He ain't runnin' 'roun' loose.



Johnny: Then, where is he?



Remus: He's back at de Favers. Dat's

what he b'longs an' you knows it.



Johnny: But teenchy's

my dog. He's mine.



Johnny: Ginny gave him

to me, and you said...



Remus: Nemmine what I said! Yo' maw

Johnny: But...but...I...I love him. He...he

loves me. You should'na done it, Uncle Remus.



Johnny: Jake'll drown

him! I know he will.



Remus: Ain't no use o' you carryin'

on. Puppy's gone an' dat's dat.



Johnny: You don't even care! Teenchy's

gone...and you don't care at all.



Remus: Don't make no difference

whether I does or whether I



Remus: don't. I'm jes a wo' out ol'

man what ain't no good to nobody.



Johnny: But uncle remus,

you're...the best friend i have.



Remus: Mebbe so, but i'm dat pestered I

don't know whether i'm end-upperds or



Remus: end-downerds. But I does know dis...

I ain't goin' ter be tellin' you no mo' stories.



Children: Chick-a-ma, chick-a-ma,

craney crow! I went to the well to wash



Childern: my toe! When I got there, the well

was bare! What time is it, old witch!



Ginny: Hurry, maw, hurry!



Maw Favers: I'm doin' the best I can.



Ginny: Please, maw!

The party'll be over.



Maw Favers: If you don't quit bobbin' up

and down I'll never get this collar on.



Ginny: I'm just doin' like you told me.
