I know you are a busy bee, but boy busy-bees don't buzz. Only bee busy-bees buzz.
I can still hear you, Neville.
Neville!
I should think so.
He's such a musical child, and one doesn't want to discourage him.
Sidney, take that paint-brush out of your ear and give it back to Lavinia.
Yes, you do want it back, Lavinia. You like painting.
Yes, you do.
We're hoping she is going to take to it soon.
Now then, Hazel, have you tried wiggling it?
You know, Mrs Hingle, this child's finger really is caught in the keyhole... I think the Fire Brigade are the best in an emergency. Yes, there is a telephone - at the end of the passage. Would you? Oh, that is good of you. I'll stay here and hold the fort and prepare the children. Thank you so much.
Children, I don't want anyone to get excited, but kind Mrs Hingle has gone to see if we can get one of those clever men from the Fire Brigade to come and help us get Hazel's finger out...
Oh, you've got it out, Hazel. Well done. That's lovely.
IT'S ALL RIGHT, MRS HINGLE - SHE'S GOT IT OUT.

  Sidney. You are not to go near the keyhole.
SIDNEY.
Can you get it out?
I SPOKE TOO SOON, MRS HINGLE...
Oh, Sidney...
