He'll have to find another time to propose. Gallantly, he puts aside his romantic problems and prepares to leave on the rescue mission.

Answer: Morningside Orphanage

Penny is an orphan from the Morningside orphanage. It isn't much to go on, but if she addressed her message to the orphanage, there must be someone there who cares about her. And whoever that is might have some idea of what happened to her. So, Miss Bianca and Bernard set out on the first stage of their investigation.

Answer: A load of snow falls off the building and buries him.

He is, though, just as kind, and as smitten with the beautiful and sweet-natured Bianca. Despite Bernard's misgivings, they start on their long journey that very night. A little thing like a blizzard isn't going to keep Albatross Air grounded when a child has been kidnapped and Miss Bianca has been directed to rescue him!
