7 EXT. MALLORCA. CLIFF-TOP RESTAURANT. DAY. 7

And in they come. Greeted by waiters and waitresses, the

place surprisingly informal, open air to the sea, a tree

growing in the middle of the restaurant providing shade,

modernism and Hellenism combined. And costing the earth.

Other DINERS are already eating but the Roper table is the

main event. It is fourteen-strong, one giant white tablecloth

with the main view of the bay.

Champagne is already waiting in buckets. A babble of chat and

welcome as they arrive, seat themselves.

HEAD WAITER:

Mr Roper sir.

ROPER:

My dear Jorge it’s been far too

long. How is everyone?

HEAD WAITER:

You heard about Mrs Cortes of

course?

ROPER:

Yes, very sad, you got my flowers?

HEAD WAITER:

It was much appreciated.

ROPER:

You still do the shellfish soup I

hope?

HEAD WAITER:

Of course sir. The recipe lives on.

Night Manager ep 2 final

ROPER:

Good, we will all have that to

start. And then the meat dishes and

the lobster and octopus, no need

for menus, just give us the

selection. And as much salad as you

can throw at us. Keeps us young.

Danny. You sit next to Jed since

she’s so hot for you.

CORKORAN:

Boss you want to do the honours?

ROPER:

Go ahead Corky if it gives you such

a thrill.

CORKY uncorks the first bottle of champagne. Cheers on all

sides. ROPER smiles at JED looking stunning as the sun sets

behind her.

8 EXT. MALLORCA. CLIFF TOP RESTAURANT. EVENING. 8

Later. We are in the meat course. The table is awash with

conversation. The evening coming on, mosquito candles are

out, the cicadas are going crazy, it’s still warm and

DANIEL’s eyes sparkle in the lamp-light.
