ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- Knock knock, special delivery.

- Oh, is that my gas and air?

- Oh this is oxygen, Mrs. Schroder.

And it's for Julie.

- Oh.

- It will help her with her breathing

if she starts to feel unwell.

We'll have a practice with the mask later on, poppet.

Oops, sequent on the carpet.

One, two.

- Apologies, Mrs. Schroder.

Sister and I must've brought them in on our shoes.

- Can I see?

(light instrumental music)

Are they to do with that dance?

- Nonnatus House is becoming quite a frock factory.

- I've always wanted to go to a dance.

Twirl around under the mirror ball

like you see in the films.

Before I was ill, I was too young.

And now,

well it's just now.

(light instrumental music)

I can see another sequent.

It's lying over there like a tiny little star.

- Do you know, Julie,

there really are plenty more spangles and ferblers

where that came from.

We'll have you turning every head in the ballroom of Hope.

- I can't dance.

- I'll teach you.

I was a dab hand at the Foxtrot before I took the veil.

- Well do you think the doctor will let me?

- I think you might find it's just what the doctor ordered.

(chuckles)

(light instrumental music)
