Oskar

Kitty, kitty, kitty, do you like to pet the kitty? I like to pet the kitty! Hey look! I'm petting the kitty!

Oskar

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

Kid

Can't you read, mister, can't you read?

Oskar

(to Chocolate Boy) Hey you, little kid, how would you like to do me a favor? I need someone to read me the first page of this book again and again, until I can memorize it.

Chocolate Boy

What's in it for me? (scene later shows Chocolate Boy eating malted milk balls) It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

Ernie

I'll bet you 20 bucks you can't learn to read by the end of the month.

Mr. Hyunh

And I will bet you $50.

Oskar

OK. It's a bet.

Ernie

(to Hyunh) 50 bucks huh, Mr. High Roller?! Whoa!

Oskar

So Ernie and Mr. High Roller. I think you owe me some money.

Mr. Hyunh

I cant believe it. Oskar learned to read.

Oskar

OK, so it's true. I never learned how to read. Big deal.

Arnold

That's Ok. You can still learn.

Oskar

Ah, what for? I didn't need to read to become the successful man I am today.

Arnold

But you're a paperboy.

Oskar

What's your point?

Oskar

Nah, forget it. It's not important to me. Of course we can keep this little secret between us, okay? There's no reason for anybody else to know that 'Oskar can't read'.

Ernie Potts

OSKAR CAN'T READ?!!! (laughs)

Mr. Hyunh

(laughs) It's unbelievable!

Oskar

Who said I can't read?

Ernie Potts


You did just now, Kokoschka!!! Your probably just too dumb to learn!! (chuckles)

Arnold

Arnold (Frustrated expression)
