- Paddington: [narrating] Dear Aunt Lucy, yesterday evening the Browns told me I would be attending my very first charity ball. All I needed to do was find something to wear. And of course, learn how to dance. [Paddington picks up a clothes rack and attempts to dance] It is easier said than done. [Paddington falls.]
Windsor Gardens - Master Bedroom
- Mary Brown: Was that the door Harry?
- Harry Brown: No Mary, that was Paddington. Only a bear would do the tango at half past six on a Saturday morning.
- Mary Brown: Don't be cross with him, dear. He was having trouble with his terms last night. [Mr. Brown walks out of the room]
- Harry Brown: And I'm having trouble with my sleep this morning!
Windsor Gardens - Paddington's Room
- [Mr. Brown walks in]
- Paddington: [hanging on the clothes rack] Yes? Good morning Mr. Brown! Dancing is harder than it looks. My legs keep getting tangled up.
- Harry Brown: Yes, hm. I see what you mean, Paddington. [gets Paddington off of the rack]
- Paddington: I think I better ask Mr. Gruber for some help.
- Harry Brown: That's a very good idea.
- Paddington: [narrating] Over the years Mr. Gruber has advised me on lots of topics. And I was sure he would be able to offer a word or two on the subject of dancing. [Paddington looks in the window, Mr. Gruber is working] [walks in]
- Paddington: I didn't know you could dance, Mr. Gruber!
- Mr. Gruber: Everyone is doing it, Mr. Brown. Why, anyone who is anyone is going to tonight's ballroom.
- Paddington: I'm afraid they don't have many ballrooms in Darkest, Peru, Mr. Gruber. So I don't know how to d-d-d-dance! [falls]
