THORN: When that day comes, I may change my tune.
[Enter] Hello all. [Toss hat at coat rack.]
NORA: Good day, Adam.
THORN: Hello, Talbot. What do you have to show for yourself?
I have a print, Sir. [Place photograph in front of Thorndyke.]
EVELYN: Yes, Mother. Will I see you later, Adam?
THORN: Ah, yes. It works. This is nearly perfect, Talbot. Good work!
Nearly perfect? I think it workd out even better than expected.
THORN: Oh, yes, this is good. It looks like a big potato, no dbout. Quite convincing.
THORN: But you will have to do it over.
What? Do it over? But you just said it was convincing.
THORN: It's lacking information.
What do you mean?
THORN: We shall have to do the whole thing over, but with some additions. I've given it more thought.
THORN: We shall require a sign or plackard in the photograph. Detailing the size of this massive spud. The photograph alone doesn't spell it out.
Spell what out?
THORN: Blast it, must I spell it out for you as well?
No, Sir. Or, yes, Sir. Please do.
THORN: We must label it and name its grower.
THORN: I'll get you a sign to putin the next portrait, and arrnage for Swan to meet you back here.
THORN: Put this firs photograph in his pocket when you compose the next one. It will add to the effect.
Yes, sir. Good day, sir. [Start to walk out.]
