The aunt, visiting the little sick patient - I'm sorry I didn't bring you any gifts, Cahrlie, but I didn't see anything you might like.
Charlie - What did you see you thought I wouldn't like?

City man: At last I can breathe! No newspapers, no gambling, no one I know!
On his first day he dedicates himself to taking care of the vegetable garden.

On the second day he builds and paints a fence and enjoys himself, feeding the chickens.

On the third day he walks through the fields, in search for flowers and romance, and dedicates himself to fishing.

But during the remaining 27 days, he reads newspapers, plays the domino and goes train spotting, hoping to see a familiar face.
