The wind changes, so Mary Poppins leaves, to the upset of the children. However, their father calls them, having mended the kite. They go and fly it, not even stopping to say goodbye to Mary Poppins, who quietly returns to the sky. Mr. Banks gets his job back and gets promoted to partner at the bank. Mr. Dawes Sr. liked Mr. Banks' joke so well, he "died laughing" (literally, apparently).
