Bianca Castafiore: You have bad news?
Captain Haddock: Yes, l must leave tomorrow. They're clamouring for me at La Scala in Milan to do a Rossini opera.
Captain Haddock: (Grins widely) l'm terribly upset. (Giggles) Shattered! Are you sure you can't stay?
Bianca Castafiore: l know you'd like me to stay, Captain, but alas, l've made my reservations.
Captain Haddock: Yipee! Oh, happy day! (Dances)
Bianca Castafiore: What was that, Captain?
Captain Haddock: Oh happy day! My wheelchair's gone away!
