    • Prince Tuesday: I like to be in school. Harriet: And we like to have you, too, don't we, Daniel and Ana? Daniel and Ana: I'll say. Ana: That day when Prince Tuesday wasn't here, we were all sad. Prince Tuesday: I like it here, better than home. (Lady Elaine emerges) Lady Elaine: Well, then you'd better come and live with me, Tuesday. Prince Tuesday: Auntie Lady Elaine, you scared us. Lady Elaine: I just think you'd better come and live with me at the Museum-Go-Round. Prince Tuesday: Why? Lady Elaine: Well, you know yourself. Things are awfully upset at your place. I mean, if your mom and dad get a divorce, you can come to live-- Harriet: Now, now, Lady Elaine, how could you say such a thing? Lady Elaine: Well, it's the truth, isn't it? Harriet: Nobody has said that the King and Queen are getting a divorce, have they? Prince Tuesday: If they do, it'll be all my fault. Harriet: I think we've talked about this enough. We just have to ask the King and Queen. Prince Tuesday: I'm afraid to. Harriet: Well, I'm your teacher, dear, so I can help you. Prince Tuesday: You mean right now? Harriet: Right now. Ana: May we go along? Harriet: I know you're worried about it, too, dear. Daniel: And so am I, Miss Cow. Harriet: Well, then we should all go. People shouldn't have to guess about important things. Lady Elaine: I'm for that. (she leaves) Harriet: Now, remember, Lady Elaine. The King and Queen and Prince Tuesday are Prince Tuesday's mother and father. Ana: And they always will be, no matter what. Prince Tuesday: They will? Ana: Sure. If they get a divorce, or if they don't get a divorce, they'll still be your mom and dad. Nothing changes that. Prince Tuesday: Oh, I didn't know that.
