She likes you.
You see, Melanie...
..she's every bit as pretty.
You've been very nice.
Now you can have what you want.
Mrs. Angelucci said them feathers can give you asthma.
I've got a great idea.
Kids got to play, honey.
Go tell that to your son.
Are you all right?
Switch shifts on Thursday?
How come they didn't change the bandages?
No, ma'am. He's unavailable right now.
Can I have him call you?
That's Doctor Moore.
How long do I wear these things?
We'll take them off when you get back from seeing your friend.
Then I'll see if you got everything back in the right place.
Should be okay, give or take an ear or two.
I think the graft is going to be just fine, Al.
After a while it'll start itching, but you can't scratch it.
- Okay? - Okay.
This ought to hold you.
How do you feel?
Like the Invisible Man.
Come see me when you get back, okay?
Don't stare, honey. It's rude.
The things you put me through.
They always said you were weird. Even my kid brother.
Do you remember the time with the knife?
Jesus Christ! These damn kids!
Way to go! Now we'll never get it back. The lady's a witch.
Stay out of my yard!
We don't have another ball. How else we going to play?
By not hitting it here. Go somewhere else and play.
This ain't no ballpark. This is my yard.
Why don't you do something about it?
Kids got to play, honey.
You tell that to your own boy.
Uh-uh. I don't want to.
Come on, why not?
- I just don't feel like it. - Sure you feel like it.
Well, if I let you...
...can I wear your letter jacket?
- Al! - What?
He's down the street. The weird kid.
Later, Mario. Get lost.
- Come on, you promised. - Shit.
What's your name?
This is like talking to the air.
Got a knife I can borrow, kid? Got a splinter.
This it, Mario?
Yeah, that's my knife.
You thief! My brother says it's his.
Back off! Don't mess with me!
Don't mess with my brother!
He's a wrestling champion!
Now you're in trouble! This really better be your knife.
It is. Ziegenfuss stole it from me.
I thought you said he stole it!
No! I just said he had it.
I bought it from Ziegenfuss. But if he stole it, you can have it.
Don't touch it.
- It's mine. - We'll get you another.
Where'd you learn all that stuff? You wrestle or something?
You like pigeons?
What's to like?
They fly. So what?
Come on, Al. Are we going, or what?
I'm training these to be carrier pigeons.
Ha, ha. You mean with the notes, like in a war?
I got a class. I've got to go.
Pretty ugly birds.
You know, if he really can train them to carry notes, I'd buy one.
- You would? - Sure. A lot of kids would.
Wait a minute!
How about if I help you catch some?
It's funny how they do that.
If it hadn't happened every 5 minutes for the last 50 years...
They always come back to the same place.
Same exact spot every time and just carry on with their business.
- Come on. - Where you going?
- We got to get up to talk to them. - Are you kidding?
- Are we allowed up here? - No.
Looks awful high to me.
- Fuck you! - Ha, ha.
Birdy, where are you?
Very funny. Now where the fuck are you?
Come the hell out. I know you're in here, birdbrain.
A pigeon suit I'm making for you.
This way, they'll think you're one of them.
I don't want them to think I'm one of them.
Come on, just try it.
No way would I be caught dead in that.
I feel ridiculous.
You look terrific.
Come on. It's over here.
I want to go change. I look stupid!
Not to a bird, Al.
