You may remember that just before Christmas Cagney hurt his leg. To help him recover I temporarily put him & Bezukhov into the folding cage as there would not be so far to fall if he lost his footing.
Naturally, those Toyboys had other ideas. They did NOT want to be in that cage & wanted their Manor back. Tout suite!
How did they indicate that? Panic. They are good at showing different levels of panic when things are not as they should be. Here they are involuntarily doing the Do-si-do on the platform perch:
Yes, the Manor was returned to them the very next day!
And yes, this is a good example of a bird hiding its injury as you barely notice a limp with Cagney’s need to get the steps right!
