Take highlanders for instance,how do they deal with this issue: When they talk,she won’t enter a room. That’s because they’re mountaineers.Oh. I mean, people from the mountains! Have you seen mine?

Don’t drag your feet!Spit it out!
adventure time subtitles She’s right! Don’t drag your feet!Spit it out!
She’s right! Don’t drag your feet!Spit it out! He was standing near therailway car… Who was standing? Who was standingthere? Vasiliy? A log slipped from the carand “smash” it fell to the ground! And one end banged Vasiliy on the head. Smashed your Father,Lyudka. That’s it. Vasiliy! Damn it… That condition willremain forever now. – What will remain forever?- A squint. So he’s alive? Don’t you croak, you silly goose!’course he’s alive, but his left eye now looks this wayand the other one looks that way. And what did you think? I will show you whatwe thought, oh you old fool! Oh you!Stop! Stop, stop, stop! – Not bad. Not bad indeed.- And now you. – Me?- Yes, you. – Well, announce the next act!- Me? Announce? Yes, the second act.Go and announce it. Act number two,the sad one! Hey, why are you here, you old geezer?And that you dare! Just wait until I get the broom,you’ll learn your lesson. – Please, don’t.- Please, don’t! – Forgive me, Nadya.- No way. I almost died of fear. I’ll tell Vasiliy all about it,when he returns from the hospital. That’ll teach you! – Nadya, do you have some brew?- Sure we do, but not for you! – Nadya, I feel sick.- Poor thing! Look at him! Didn’t have enough to drink? I’ll go and tell your wife how youlatch onto your neighbors for a drink. Oh, but she’s not with us anymore,my dear Sasha, she’s not! That’s it! She’s gone… Hm, I wonder, where has shegone then? I told her, let me call them.But she went, “No, it’ll pass. ” And then I sawshe started to blot. – So I decided to disobey her and ran.- Where to? What are you talking about? I ran to fetch an ambulance.And we went to the hospital on it. And then the doctorcame out and said, “Dear Grandpa,your Grandma has died. ” Uncle Mitya, what is it all about?How could this happen? He told me that she has died. I can’t. How could this be? I sawher 2 days ago. And yesterday she wanted to goharvest potatoes and, tellingly, with Filipov’s family. Then she’s gone all bad. She went,”I can’t bend over, my heart aches. ” She told us, go on your own anddig out those potatoes. Why didn’t you run to usstraight away? It’s only now thatI started to recover. Before I couldn’t bring myselfto an upright position. I was trying to walk, but mylegs wouldn’t hold me, as if they were made of cotton wool. My hands are still shaking. Have a drink, Uncle Mitya,have a drink. No, don’t bother! – Please, drink.- My dear Sasha disapproved of this. Under these circumstancesyou are allowed to, poor thing. What was wrong with her.Did the doctors tell you? Miocardinal heart attack.
Miocardinal heart attack. The scar was this big.The autopsy showed. – Eat something.- No, thanks. They’ll bring her tomorrow. In general, they are kept for 3 daysin morgue, but there ain’t no spaces. – Can I expect some neighborly help from you?- Sure, we’ll help you. – Lyudka, Aunty Sasha has died.- It can’t be. Uncle Mitya took her yesterday to thehospital, she died there. Heart failure. Miocardinal heart attack, Lyudka. – She wasn’t that old.- How old was she? How old am I? Do the math,she was 3 years younger. So how old was she, Lyudka? Lyonya! Grandma Sasha has died. – Wow.- Yesterday. And, tellingly,we loved each other. Do you know, how she used to call me?No one knows. I’d call her Sanyushka and she’dcall me Mityunyushka. I go: Sanyushka, and she goes:Mityunyushka! And such a voice, right, Nadya!Oh, how she used to sing! All those loud ‘Oh’s’ and’Ey’s in the beginning… The moment of happinessAnd moment of parting… I am ready to share with youAll the time. Let’s shakeeach other’s hands, And let’s start this long journeyFor many, many years! Are you done with the potatoes already? What are you doing? I’m telling them about my dream.Those dreams can be pretty nasty. Nadya, why have yougiven him a drink? Why do you pour him this thing?What is he doing here? What’s going on? I just leave the yard and here he is at once,getting himself plastered! Run, Uncle Mitya! – Aunty Sasha, he has buried you.- What? He says, “And tomorrow they’ll bring herfrom the morgue!” Ugly scab! Got you! Our proud battleshipnever surrenders to the foe! Act number three…A parting one. I am leaving for a resort. And thereI’ll go to a bar and will try a cocktail. The new ones will have little ones soon,take care so that cat doesn’t get them. Buy them some wheat. I know. Dad, show me your trick. – What trick?- Give a pigeon water to drink. Oh, this isn’t any trick, this is training.OK, bring me a mug. Wow! It drinks! It isn’t afraid! There was once this Volodya,a local fool. He could make 5 of themdrink at once. – A fool?- Aha. We loved him a lot, all the villagers loved him. Anyone could ask himfor help. He’d come at onceand would work the hardest. God didn’t give him brains, but he hada big soul and a lot of strength. – He was murdered, poor thing.- Who did that? Some laborers. They were driven out ofthe city and settled in our village. In the early days they weren’t settled here,but then suddenly they were. They didn’t think twice,started to drink and fight. Volodya happened to seeone of the fights. And as little kids do, hestarted to wave a finger at them: “This isn’t a good thing to do,you mischieves, why are you fighting?” And those guys didn’t think twice,just took a knife and stabbed him. There was an abandoned church,and pigeons used to live in it. Volodya started to feed them.He used to go there and crumb a loaf of bread for them. They would fly around him, touch hisface and cheeks with their wings and he would trill with laughter.It was fun to watch. They were not afraid of him, he didn’tscare them at all, unlike all others. I remember that he had a red shirt, all covered with little holesfrom their small claws. He was buried in that shirt. While he was being buried,they flew around his little grave. And later, when everyone was gone, they circled around it for a bitand flew away. We haven’t seen them since.They are darn smart, they are. – Where is the health resort voucher?- Jeez, I put it in the suitcase. Where’s the razor? Oh, hello, Uncle Mitya.Come in. – Ah, don’t worry. I’ll stand here.- Come in, come in. Vasiliy, listen! Hide money here, inthis pocket, I’ve sewn it there. What are you staring at?Go away from here! I am sorry, I didn’t want to stand inyour way while you were hiding money. Yeah, sure! Go and tell everyonein the village about it, you windbag! So you understood, you’ll put themhere and then secure it with a pin. And if it comes undone? Oh… It’ll poke you. – So what should I do? Sew it in in this hurry?- I’ll put it in my pocket. Your pocket? Are you out of you mind?They’ll pick it out. Don’t you know those ruffians?You wouldn’t even notice! Just wear it, no further ado! I’ll do it myself! What’s happened? – What have you done?- I’ve ironed it. Who’ll tie it now? Well, I guess that’s it.No resort for me now. Maybe Nikolai Trofimovich will help? He does not wear ties! Vasiliy, do not get upset just yet.I’ll find someone in a sec! – I have a right to say goodbye to a friend.- Again here with a bottle? Customs check. Well, Vasiliy, have an easy flight. – Are you flying?- I am. I’ll see what pigeons see, when they’re up above. – What is that place called?- The resort for locomotive organs. I can’t smell, Uncle Mitya. Don’t you worry,I have bay leaves, we’ll chew on them. Are you some kind of agent provocateuror what, Uncle Mitya? Dad! Hello, Uncle Mitya! I got breadand some canned food. OK, put them there. Hey, why are you still sitting?The bus is coming! – Let us have tea before the road.- Yeah, I know this ‘tea’ of yours! Lyudka, don’t tell Mom. Vasiliy, jiggers!Jiggers! Ha, and my handsome widoweris here, of course! – So what did you find?- Nothing. I went everywhere, no one knows. I’ve had it! Unpackmy suitcase! That’s it! Vasiliy, what’s came over you?Why the hell would you need it? You’ll just unbutton your shirtlike this… – Unbutton!- It’s the South there! There’s a culture there! On TVthey say it’s a cultural stronghold. Give it to me. Oh, Lyudka, oh, you beauty! I tie it differently. Well, let’s say goodbyeto our Dad. Regards and see you later. Well, Daughter… This is nothing. I’ll be back soon. – Write us something.- I’ll write you something. – Shall we kiss?- Kiss? Those ideas of yours. Now watch out there,at those resorts… – Write to me, don’t forget.- Bring me some sea shells… and a palm. – Oh, Daughter, a palm? How would I carry it?- Just a branch! Ah, a branch!OK. Goodbye and all the best! Take care, comrade! You’ve splashedwater all over me! I am all wet now, from top to toe! I’m sorry! – Oh, hello.- What is the matter? You work in our personnel department,in administration. – Comrade Kuzkin?- Yep, Kuzyakin. – Vladimir Valentinovich?- Yep, Vasiliy Egorovich. I have a professional memory. So you’rethe one who got the 2nd resort voucher? The world is so small!No, no, get out first. As you order. Who could have thought! To be thousandskilometers from home and to meet a work colleaguein the sea. Excuse me, have you come here aftersustaining an injury as well? God no! I was advised about thebenefits of this climate by my mentalist. – Menta who?- List. She foretells future! Haven’t you heard about it? I’m busy all the timewith my work. Strange… All the paperswrite about it all the time now. – What’s that? That’s her job?- No, she works in a different field. By the way, speaking of work.How’s your plan? Our plan? It’s alright.We’re fulfilling the plan. Your Forestry is in our good books.We’re very satisfied with your work. Thank you very much. Just one second, please!I’ll read the front page. [song] And the heart is breaking… into small parts when Irecall my home… – Hello, Ms Raisa!- Hello! So we’re neigbors on top of everything. Excuse me! She took a shoe,a regular shoe, lifted it by the laces and let it go. The shoe remained hangingin the air. Ms Raisa, how’s that possible? Telekinesis. The movement of objectswith only the help of the gaze. Presently this phenomenon is studiedby many mentalists and laboratories. Well, not officially yet. But geneticswasn’t recognized as well, you remember? But the progress is inexorable.Do you agree with me? Precisely. You see the dwarf Japanesemandarin trees… – I will introduce you to her, but please, be discrete!- I’ll be silent as the grave! Because as soon as they discovermentalists, they register them. They work on the state scale,foresee what happens abroad. If anything happens the Governmentturns to the mentalist immediately. Then mentalist sends an inquiry intospace: if this and that, then what? And the answer is transmittedvia the astral bodies. – And only after this the Governmentmakes a decision. – Really? But this is very ruinous for mentalists,their nervous system can become a wreck. Well, no wonder! To thinkfor the Government every day! 16 humanoids were foundon the site of the crash. They were short, 1 meter 20 cmon average, green and sexless. You know, their eyes werereally wise and sad. Oh, have you seenthem, Ms Raisa? Have I seen them?No one has seen them. After a minute in the sunthey melted. – Really?- Really! They turned into these 16 spots. Don’t let it pass your lips,it’s classified! – I got it! I’ll be silent as a grave!- We and the Americans conceal it, but we’ve both been communicatingwith them for a long time. – With whom?- With the aliens, the humanoids. It is a proven fact that peopledescended from them. They just agreed to write in thetextbooks that we descended from monkeys! Crazy! Silence, remedial sleep! I brought her a pictureof another person. He had disappeared,all of a sudden, somehow. She looked at the picture carefully,went to the map… And what happened, Ms Raisa? What happened next, she wentto the map, and? She pointed her finger and said:this is a hot spot, he’s there now. Excuse me, Ms Raisa.Did they find him? – Did they find that chap?- Who? I asked did they find that chap? This electrosleep, I must tell you,is as if something from the Stone Age! Not to compare with the Eastern medicine,but do you know how they do it there? Ping with the needle, squirt, andthat’s it. But this doesn’t work. Yep, true, for me, my head cracksand that’s it. Nothing more. Excuse me please… Aha… This is some strange kind of apples.How much are these? Lyonya asked to get himbatteries for the radio, And I need to get a present for Olya. Oh, I love you, I love you, Olya…Is that your wife, Olya? No, Olya is my younger daughter,and Nadya is my wifey. Nadya… That’s a beautiful name. Excuse me, and what isyour husband’s name? Who? Oh, no! I value my freedom,so that you know! – Marriage is voluntary slavery.- Really? And who bought you this tie? Oh, my wifey bought it. I recommend you to buy this one. It goeswell with your suit and with you eyes. [song] After patting little children’s heads I will say in tears… He asks, “So you can’t standit anymore?” – She says, “I can’t. “- These were her exact words? “I’ll try to help you. ” He took her to his office,took off her clothes, laid her down on the table. And then, with his bare hands,no sharp instruments, opened her body. They have theirsecrets, the skin parted on its own. “Does it hurt?” he asked.”No, I feel good. ” He took out all her inner organs… and put them in a bowl. He washed them there really well, almostscrubbed, and then rinsed. Son of a biscuit! Bang! And threw everything thatwas aching to the garbage bin! So our doctors can’t do that? Well, this is specialPhilippino medical practice. Ms Raisa, and that hussy,is she alive? But of course!And feels very well. But she doesn’t recognize people.She lost her memory for some reason. But the important thing is not theresult, but the process. Yeah, I understand you. – Did I tire you?- Oh no, not at all! I learned so much! I wouldn’t have learned about all thisin my entire life otherwise. – Do you know what question bothers me?- What is it, Ms Raisa? How did it happen that you and Iboth happened to be here together, under this charming southern sky?How did it happen, Vasiliy? Well, it’s because of health resort vouchers, we work at the same place. Oh, you are not a romantic, VasiliyEgorovich, you are not. [song] Remember those mountains,Remember those palm trees, But you should forget my addressonce and for all. But the eternity comes to an end, And the parting comes, And the time for farewell Is coming nearerand nearer. Let’s look Into each other’s eyes. Let’s dance, Let’s dance! For the last time. Swimming! Let’s go swimming,Vasiliy! – Oh, you have dropped something!- Let’s take the clothes off! Oh, the stars of the world! [inscription] Vasiliy, be careful!- They’re shining! And the moon is swinging…Yeah, swaying a lot. – Tell, me, Vasiliy, am I drunk?- You’re fine, we just had a tiny drop. Thank you a lot. You area very kind person. And everything is good with you,your family, your kids. You live in harmony, don’t you? – Well, different things happen.- You don’t look like a troublemaker. – Well, I am not.- Your wife? – Yep. – Nadya… – It’s all because of thepigeons, because of small stuff. That is sad, very sad. – You breed pigeons?- Yeah. How cute!Pigeons! Ms Raisa! Ms Raisa!What’s wrong? I do not do this for sale,I do it for the soul. Did I offend you? You know, as a kid I was a crazymischief! A real tomboy. My Dad wanted to have a son,but a girl was born. – And what was her name?- Whose? – Well, that girl’s? – Raisa.- Oh, I don’t get this… My Dad wanted a boy, but a girlwas born, I was born! Yes, I understood. My Dad… My Dad… – Do you know who was my Dad?- No. – He was in the cavalry, an officer!- Oh, yeah… Got it. We also used to chase pigeons.And I used to… I never knew how to whistle. And you know how to do it.But I was always surprised by a different thing: how tender these stupid birdiescan be! Why human beings are so different?Why, Vasiliy? Exactly! – And she says to me, “Where is the money?”- And where was the money? Oh, I’ve boughta couple of pigeons. Oh, they’re smart,the feathered tribe! You take a pigeon and let him go up,towards the clouds, to the flock, and it becomes so tiny, not biggerthan a match head, but you keep the female dove. And then youjust raise your hand and wave, and he throws himself at her likea stone and starts cooing at her. – How can you explain it?- Well, a procreation instinct most likely. It’s love.Most probably… – Oh, love, dear Vasiliy Egorovich…- Raisa Zakharovna… [inscription] Oh, Vasiliy,how could you… I think I feel well,but I’m not sure yet. I’ve gathered a lot of sea shells for Olya,they take up the whole nightstand. I’ll cut the palm branch beforeleaving, otherwise it may whither. I’ve bought a lot of batteries forLyonya’s radio. Sounds good! All in all, the things you’ve askedfor – I’ve got them all! Dear Nadya! Please excuse me that… What’s that, Lyudka? It lookslike this is someone else’s hand. Dear Nadya! Please excuse me thatI interfere, but Vasiliy is a very timidand delicate person. That’s why it is difficult forhim to make a decision. On the shores of this wonderful sea – Vasiliy and I have found each other.- What’s that? Vasiliy and them have found each other. It has happened unexpectedly,as if by obsession. We are still at a little bit of a loss. But God’s ways are mysteriousand no one knows what kind of trials await us. One thing is sure, we won’tbe able to live without each other. Lyudka, I don’t understand. Who is thatperson writing, is it his roommate? This ain’t a roommate,this is a woman. Please, don’t be afraid, I’m not againsthim communicating with his children. I believe that you, being anintelligent person, will not condemn us for this little ray of happiness in thedark sky of life. Please forgive us. Sincerely yours, Raisa Zakharovna. P. S. Thank you for Vasiliy. – What’s this, Lyudka? What does P. S. mean?- Post scriptum. Afterword. – Thank you for Vasiliy.- Thank who? – You! For Vasiliy! Oh, wait! Here he wrote again! Nadya, we fly backhome on the 4th. – What day is it today?- 11th. Well, they must have arrived by now. So do not write to this address. I wouldn’t be able to tell thisto you, a letter is better. And Ms Raisa a is a good woman.She even helped to chose the presents. Goodbye, Vasiliy. Oh, woe is me!Oh, what have I done to deserve this! Lyonya, what is that?! Isn’t he ashamed,the pig? What a stud! Do you see what kind ofa stud your Dad is! – Why do you cry?!- I don’t know what to do! Oh, woe is me! – Lyonya, have you fed the piglets?- Yes. I will tear away the heads of hispigeons! Lyudka, where is our axe? I will definitely do it,you damn stud! But what do pigeonshave to do with this? So it is alright to tortureyour Mom? Is it? We brought you up!Do you think it was easy? If I meet him, I’ll kill him,but pigeons have nothing to do with it. – What do you mean, you’ll kill him?- What an idiot. Hey, Lyonya! Are you insane?Don’t even think about it! Grabbing him by the back ofhis neck and shaking him well will do! – Hey, sit down! Where are you going?- I’m going to the outhouse. – I’ll go with you!- Are you out of your mind? – Well, I’ll just guard you.- I am going to the outhouse! I know this story!If you do what you think of you’ll end up in jail andyour life will never be right again! My dear Lyonya, please be patient, maybehe will come back! Are you all out of your minds? Hello! Hello! – Are you Nadya? – Yes.- I came to talk to you. – And where are you from?- I am from the administration. Good afternoon, please, come in. Oh, a samovar! How cute. – Such a grief has befallen us!- Mother, cut it out! – Excuse me!- Thank you. – Oh, I’ll go get tea ready.- Please don’t bother! – And who are you in the administration?- I work in the personnel department. Why do you look after yourpersonnel so badly? They run wherever they want!And you don’t care! Well, you know, in general wedo not have any personnel turnover. But we do! A horrible turnoverhappened to us! You should reprimand him real good,ream that fool out. Mom, maybe she’s here ona different issue? Ah no, precisely becauseof this very issue. Don’t you have anythingelse to do? Go! Excuse us. Lyonya, hey, come back! Where are you going? – To feed the piglets.- Well, listen here, don’t you even think about it! – Oh, he says that he’s gonna kill him!- Whom? – His Father! He’s very quiet, but then he gets athing into his stupid head, and I worry. Well, this is certainly not a way out. – How can one think this way!- Sure! – He’s his Father! He found some other woman, that bastard,and that’s the last we saw of him! I was told about the thingsthat happen at those resorts. How those loose women get there?Why do you give them resort vouchers? Nadya, we bothare women. Yep. – I want us to understand each other.- Yes, yes. – It is not that bad.- How come? It is really bad. Please, calm yourself down. – Do you love him?- Huh? Do you love this man? He ain’t no man! If he were a man,he wouldn’t have done this! This bitch set the trap for him,and that fool let himself be tricked. Why do you think that he was tricked,maybe he tricked her? Oh, don’t talk nonsense! A goodwoman would never do such a thing. You’ll see, it will come back to haunt her! God has a lot on his mind,but God is not blind! She will repent a thousand times… … this snake for takinghusbands from their families! Why do you say she hashundreds of them?! Well, you ain’t saying he’sher 1st one and that she’s 16? No, she’ not 16!And he’s not her 1st. What if this is love, Nadya? – How do you mean, love?- I mean, real love! This is what you should have thoughtabout in the 1st place, dear Nadya! Oh, I don’t know… We have lived so many years withhim without fighting and all was good. – What if it was all a habit?- What do you mean, a habit? – Just simply a habit. That is why I ask you:do you love this man? Oh, I don’t know.You say all these different words… What love can I talk about,when I don’t have enough air, I can’t breathe,it burns in my chest, as if I swallowed hot coalsfrom the oven. Nadya, dear, do not hold anything against Vasiliy.If you love him, you won’t hurt him. I understand that it is difficultfor the heart to accept it. But we are people and we haverea… son. What’s the matter? – Why are you looking at me in this way?- So it is you, huh? It is me, Nadya,what is your patronymic? Oh, what’s this world coming to? – Lyudka, aye, Lyudka!- What? – Just look what’s happening! It’s her!- How do you do, Lyuda. Do you intend to make a scandal? I came to you, Madame, because Ideemed you to be an intelligent woman. – Oh you little bleached bitch!- What do you mean, bleached? This is my natural hair color! As far as I understand, our meetinghas come to an end. Thank you for your attention. We’ll discuss this situationwith Vasiliy and we’ll inform you about theresults in written form. Goodbye, Lyuda.goodbye, Nadya. No need to see me off.Live happily. Oh you, I’ll show you… Girls, restrain your Mother! Calm down, stay calm.Oh what a pest! “Lyudka, aye, Lyudka!”Pooh, what a boor! What was that? What is happening? I tell her everything from thebottom of my heart… And she turns out to be…her… If I get to know that any of yousee your Dad, I’ll curse you. Good afternoon! – Good afternoon!- Hello!… Miss. Hello, my friend. Will you have some lunch…Ma’am? Grated cheese, beetroot… A little bit more. Like this. Oh Jesus… – I see that!- I wanted to add a little bit of salt. Otherwise it isn’t possibleto swallow it. By no means! Salt isa white poison. – Isn’t sugar a white poison?- Sugar is a sweet poison. – Ms Raisa, maybe some bread?- Bread is a poison! Oh, I wouldn’t mind getting poisonedby a good slice of bread! It’s true. I wouldn’t mindgetting stuffed real good! – Getting stuffed? What’s wrong with ‘eat’?- Eh? – Not ‘eh’, but ‘excuse me’! Ms Raisa! Don’t be so tragic about it! Raisa, really! Please, stop! Excuse me, my dear.I was really hurt today. – Well… Eat, eh?- Elegy. Massenet? Come here, my beloved one, sitdown and give me your hand. Like this… And let us be silent. – Why are people so cruel?- Who? Why, oh why,oh why? But people are different, Raisa. Oh my, I haven’t doneanything bad to her! – Raisa, please, eat.- Honey, you’re hungry? – Let’s eat.- Let’s eat. Oh, the barrier is insurmountable. No understanding for our love!Moreover, I almost got killed. Those people just stood there, watched.Vasiliy, those were your children! Such aloofness! – Raisa, you didn’t go to Nadya, did you?- Yes I did. I stumbled upon a wall of egotism,hate and lack of understanding. – Why did you go there?- I wanted to establish contact. You’re a shy person… but you’llhave to deal with it on your own. Careful, honey, or you’ll spoil boththe needle and Massenet. – Alright then, I’m leaving.- No, wait, we have to decide. No, there is nothing to decide.I am leaving. – Where to?- Some place. I have packed already. – You mean you are leaving altogether?- Yep. – What about me?- Why do you need me, Raisa? I don’t know how to washsocks and shirts. But you’ve learned. – I curse!- I like it! It is risque. I got used to it. If you want…Doodle-poodle! I will start too! No, please, don’t. I can’t, Ms Raisa!I am drawn to them. – Drawn to whom?- To Nadya, to the kids. – So you’re going to that Gorgon?- Ah no, I’m going to my wife. – What about me?- Ms Raisa, I really can’t… I will not let you go, Vasiliy!I will not let you go! What is this, really,Miss, what’s going on? I wanted it all to be good,good for people. What’s the matter? Vasiliy, Vasiliy! You are my happiness, my destiny,you are my love! If you want, I can learn how to bakepies, I like them myself. I will wash everything by myself,do you want that? Tell me what you want meto become! I’ll be that! Raisa, really, why are youacting like in the movies? Vasiliy, don’t you believe me? Ms Raisa, please, let me go! Dear Vasiliy, please, do not kill me.We are from different social strata, – but destiny brought us together.- Destiny? What are you talking about? One night at the bar barred my way back! What do you mean, at the bar?!Oh, what a foolish woman I am! Calm down. What do you wantfrom me, for God’s sake? – You’ve thrown yourself upon me out of boredom!- Me? On you? Well, who else? Being all alone allthe time… It ain’t no fun, for sure! – Leave us alone!- Oh, yeah, this is the right decision! – Get out of my house!- Oh, this is the real thing now! – Please leave us alone!- I just wanted a better life! – Get out from my house! Leave us alone!- Sure, all right! So what do the cards say? Vasiliy will come, he will for sure! The road is for Nadya, not for him.Nadya will go somewhere. But this anger here… – Well, anger, sure! Is there a reason to rejoice?- Oh, go away! Mom, maybe you shouldget out of bed? Yeah, Nadya, come on,stretch your legs. Just do one small thing,then the other. Just switch your mind to the chores!

He was silent. – He’ll wait for you the day after tomorrow.- I won’t go! What? Nothing. Look at him, went to a resort andturned into a lover-boy! I felt sorry in the beginning,stupid me. But now not anymore! He’ll findhimself another one, now he knows how. Nadya, what is this?You’ll be like that at odds forever? Nadya, he’s a good man, he doesn’t drinkand works hard! Will you find someone like him? No! Oh, damn them all!I don’t need anyone! When Mitya starts badgering me,I can’t hold it! I feel such pity for him! And you, you’re young, whyshould you suffer? I won’t go! So just sit here! From now on I’malso at odds with you. You have no pity neither for thechildren, nor for him, nor for yourself. After I die I’ll invite Vasiliy to thefuneral banquet, but I won’t let you in! I won’t go! So, Vasiliy, here I am. You’re here! So what will you tell me now? – How’s Lyonya?- He’s alright! Says, he’ll kill you. He’ll kill me? Well, alright. – Nadya, dear, maybe let’s sit down?- Let’s sit down. Sit down, Nadya, dear. Sit down. Wait! Just a moment!I have a newspaper. Like so. Yeah, sit down. It’s getting chilly. You’ve broughtsome vodka with you or what? I did! Just a second. – All armed and prepared, ha?- No… If you don’t… I… Oh, alright, pour it! – Are we to look at it now?- Just a second. Wait… Just a sec.Some snacks. Go on! – What’s that? Have a bite!- Don’t drink too much. Just a tiny bit. – Oh, son of a gun!- What? Nadya, dear, I feel mightyshitty without you. I’m a fool… Well, if you don’t need pigeons,to hell with them, I’ll chase them away. Fiddle sticks! I’m as restless as an insomniac bear, my mind is wonderingsomewhere all the time. – Life is such a…- Oh, stop complaining! Why did I muck aboutwith those pigeons… It has rushed into your head,so you were mucking about. – What are you talking about!- Nothing! Such a shame! All men are like real men and this oneraces over the roofs with the teenagers. I was so ashamed I couldn’t lookpeople in the eyes! You’d like it more if I wasted my timeplaying cards? I didn’t say that. Those guys play pokerlike crazy every evening after work, you race over the roofs, what’s thedifference? Both are addictions! Why are you blabbering,if you don’t know? Oh, but you understand all the knowledge! Your brain is so big that itsticks out from your ears! Go to that resort girlie and tell her,I do not need to be taught! What does this have to do with it? What’s it got to do? They were healingtheir locomotive system! My ass! If only someone cut off thoselimbs of yours, so that you couldn’t do allthose stupid things you did! You’ve made a mess and nowyou regret it, I see that. I go home from the market,all shivering. I come near gates and thinkthat you’re not there, so what is there for me to do? Nadya, I wasn’t thinking! I’ll die, Nadya. Nadya, I’ll die for you, not for myself.Let them cut me into pieces… as long as you live. I hurt you. I am ready to pay for it,with anything. With my life, if you want! Nadya, forgive me, please,forgive me! – Vasiliy, dear!- Nadya, dear! Vasiliy, dear, what are you doing?Right here, right now? People will see us! I woke up in the morning and cookedthis for you while the kids were asleep! Eating at the canteenisn’t much fun. I almost bumped into Lyonya.I think he hasn’t noticed. Jeez… I met Aunt Sasha in the street.She was smiling. I asked her why and she saidthat if I were happy, she was happy too. – Maybe she has learned that we see each other?- But how? – Maybe somebody told her?- But who knows about it? – Maybe she read it from your face?- My face? You now, I really try to frownwhen I am with other people. Well, you can try as hard as you like,but your eyes, they’re sparkling! Eat up, eat! – Finish your food first.- Well, I did. You behave as if we were on a honeymoonagain. Where does this energy come from? Calm down, you crazy! I’ll scream! Oh, you crazy!Get off me! – Ah, maybe it was good that she was in our life.- Who? That marriage-wrecker,that ratty Raisa of yours! Why do you have to start again? We lived and worked,while misfortune was lurking behind our gates like a dog. But maybe it wasn’t misfortune,if it has shown me the truth. What has it shown you? How much I love you,how much you love me, what wonderful kids we have. But our kids are really wonderful,for sure! You’re right, Vasiliy. I hadn’t thought before that you canjust disappear! I have never thought about it! And now I think about everything:about war, about those rotten capitalists. Oh, Vasiliy, what do theywant from us? Well, as if there’s nothingbetter to think about. – The war is… – What is it?- It’s a marriage-wrecker too! One gives birth and doesn’tknow what awaits that child! What kind of life will they have? How will their fate be decided? – Giving birth is not our concern anymore!- Don’t be so sure! Whoa! Yeah! In the beginning I couldn’t understand.Then I got scared. And now I don’t know what to think. Holy Moly, dear mother… . – What a thing to do!- Well, it was you who did it. Well, we both did it, Nadya! Oh, Nadya, my dove! This is what it does!This is what love does! Nadya, let me kiss you! Oh, get off, Vasiliy! Vasiliy, I am afraid. What will peoplesay? That I went crazy in my old age… Oh, let them talk! You are youngerthan those youngsters nowadays! Let those youngsters try!They will bloody fail! – Vasiliy, dear, it is 2 months!- How do you know? What do you mean? We’ve been hiding herefor 2 months already. Enough! We’ve been underground enough,we need to come out! – People will laugh at us!- No they won’t! My wife is pregnant! Stop running to those dates, you’llcatch a cold and what am I to do then? Nadya, quit it and go home! – You’ll be cold.- Nah, don’t worry, it’s warmer now. – Is the smoke OK?- Just exhale sideways. What, you can’t hold anymore?Go and coo to them. Oh, Nadya… Let mefinish this cigaret first. Well, go, I tell you! – Well, well. – It drinks! It remembers!- Interesting! Will it drink from me? Let’s try! Get some water. But don’t laugh, Nadya,don’t laugh. – Why are you laughing?- And why did you say not to laugh? Get some water. Move closerto the pigeon and coo a bit. Push water, push it! Nadya, what? A bird and yet not afraid. Amazing! – Mom, where are you?- Could it be Lyonya? Why is he so early?What should we do now? – Quiet! I’ll slip through the backyard.- Backyard? Without your pants? Fiddle sticks! I told you, get dressed, but no!”It’s warm now, it’s warm!” But it really is warmer, Nadya! – Stay put.- Yep. Lyonya, aye, Lyonya! I’m here. You’ve come already?Go get me some water, if you’re here. Well, there is a whole tub fullin the bathhouse. – Where?- I filled it yesterday. I wanted to do the washing today. – Well, use it.- Lyonya… Mom, go and fetch Dad.Stop hiding! Who’s hiding, I wonder!If I only met him… – It’s OK, I saw him!- Where? – Near the river. And you were kissing!- You and your imagination. – I’m being conscripted into the army.- Who? – Take a guess. – When?- Tomorrow at 7 am. – What about health examination?- I passed. – Why didn’t you tell me? When could I? You’re too busybeing in love. – What branch of service will you go to, Sonny?- Border guards. It’s quiet there right now! Sure, quiet! – Well, tell her?- What should I tell her, Sonny? To stop crying! Stop crying! Get the tableready, quick. Oh, my Sonny! Let her get over it a bit. – We probably should call Mitya and Aunt Sasha.- I’ll do that! Dad! Put on your trousers. Oh, fiddle sticks! Bah! Well, I wanted to geta bathhouse going… – Who else is conscripted with you?- Sashka Buldanov, Vitka Roisen, Vovka. – Filimonov?- We’ll all be on the same team!

Dad, there is a broom,behind the bathhouse on the wall. And you were afraid.One has to understand! See, what a fine lad we’ve brought up! And now look at me.And look at you! Buttons!

What are you doing, crazy heads?You’ll fall! – I don’t see them! Where are they, Olya?- Above your head. Look right above you. – Show her to him ’cause he won’t see.- Nah, let them rise a little bit higher He lost us. You’ve waitedtoo long. Oh, my neck! – That’s enough.
