But I cannot permit mice in my hotel

Mr. Stringer:
I'm sorry, madam, but I cannot permit mice in my hotel.
Helga:
How dare you say that when your rotten hotel is full of rats anyway?
Mr. Stringer:
Rats? There are no rats in this hotel!
Helga:
I saw one this morning running along the corridor, into the kitchens.
Mr. Stringer:
Madam, you only arrived in the hotel this afternoon.
Helga:
[scoffs]
Morning, afternoon, I saw a rat in your hotel, and if matters do not improve, I shall have to report you to the public health authorities.
Mr. Stringer:
Look, madam, I'm not prepared...
Luke:
The cakes in the lounge are nibbled around the edges, too. I can show you.
Helga:
If you are not careful, the health people will order the whole hotel closed before everyone gets typhoid fever.
Mr. Stringer:
You can't be serious, madam!
Helga:
I have never been more serious in my life. Now - will you or will you not let my grandchild keep his hygienic and perfectly harmless pet mice?

Transcript:
Yes.
I'm sorry, madam,
but I cannot permit mice in my hotel.
How dare you say that
when your rotten hotel...
...is full of rats anyway?
Rats?
There are no rats in this hotel.
I saw one this morning running
along the corridor into the kitchen.
Madam, you only arrived in the hotel
this afternoon.
Morning, afternoon.
I saw a rat in your hotel...
...and if matters do not improve...
...I'll have to report you
to the public health authorities.
Look, madam, I'm not prepared...
The cakes in the lounge are nibbled
all around the edges. I can show you.
If you're not careful...
...the health people
will order the whole hotel closed...
...before everyone gets typhoid fever.
You can't be serious, madam.
I've never been more serious in my life.
Now, will you or will you not
let my grandchild...
...keep his hygienic
and perfectly harmless pet mice?
If they are kept in the cage,
and only in this room.
Nowhere else in the hotel!
Agreed.
Very well.
Grandma...
...I can't train my mice if they're in a cage.
Nibbled cakes, indeed.
There were,
only it was a boy called Bruno Jenkins.
I'm teaching William and Mary
how to be tightrope walkers.
I brought the circus I'm building with me.
Good. Show me.
Let's see.
Look. I'm planning them a major house.
Ramp ways here, a bathtub.
This elevator's pretty neat.
You really did this yourself?
It's good. I'm impressed.
You must train your mice...
...but you mustn't get caught
or do it in here...
...because if that hysterical maid
comes back...
Now it's teatime.
I just love English hotel teas.
Cream cakes and shortbread and...
No, Grandma.
No cream cakes.
And no shortbread, either.
It's full of sugar.
I shall end up eating the same diet
as your mice.
That's the trouble with this country:
A queue for everything.
They wouldn't think to have
two tea trolleys.
No, that'd be too convenient
for the paying guests.
They'll want two lumps of ice
in their whiskey next.
