Jane:This is your room, and there’s a lovely view of the park.
Mary Poppins:Hmm. Well, it’s not exactly Buckingham Palace. Still, it’s clean. Yes, I think it will be quite suitable. Just needs a touch here and there. Well, first things first. I always say, the place to hang a hat is on a hat stand. Ah! This will never do! I much prefer seeing all of my face at the same time.
Michael:There– but there was nothing in it.
Mary Poppins:Never judge things by their appearance. Even carpet bags. I’m sure I never do. A thing of beauty is a joy forever. Mmm, a little more light, perhaps.
Michael:We better keep an eye on this one. She’s tricky.
Mary Poppins:Much better! Now, let me see. That’s funny. I always carry it with me. It must be here somewhere.
Mary Poppins:My tape measure.
Michael:What do you want it for?
Mary Poppins:I want to see how you two measure up. Well, that’s the funniest thing I ever saw. I know it’s down here somewhere. Ah, ha-ha, ha-ha! Here it is. Good. Come along, then. Quickly. Head up, Michael. Don’t slouch. Just as I thought. Extremely stubborn and suspicious.
Michael:I am not!
Mary Poppins:See for yourself.
Michael:”Extremely stubborn and sus–“
Mary Poppins:Suspicious. Now you, Jane. Mmm. “Rather inclined to giggle. Doesn’t put things away.”
Michael:How ’bout you?
Mary Poppins:Very well. Hold this for me. As I expected. “Mary Poppins. Practically perfect in every way.”
Jane:Mary Poppins! Is that your name? It’s lovely.
Mary Poppins:Thank you. I’ve always liked it.
