...but I think Eric lives quite near me.

Don't you, Eric?

Just a few feet away.


Your pencil.

I'm sorry, Mr. Barring,

but I don't seem to have a pencil.

If you'll excuse me.

To our host.


Our host.

May he reach heaven

before the final check arrives.


Ah, Mr. Barring.

- You enjoyed your dinner?

- I enjoyed my dinner.

Splendid. Splendid.

You see, Mr. Barring, l...

I see you no longer wish

to extend me credit.

Mr. Barring, if this were the first time,

or if it were I personally...

- You own the place, don't you?

- No, unfortunately.

I am but an employee.

Then tell your employer

that I want to find out...

...why the name of Barring

shouldn't be good...

...at a miserable after-hours roadhouse.

We are not operating this miserable

roadhouse for the benefit of names.

Even the name of Barring.

You are the proprietor?

In a way.

Excuse me. Have you something

in your eye? Might I help you?

It doesn't hurt, it's only a trick

I learned from a friend.

She had beautiful eyes too.

- Did she?

- Yes, and now just hold still.

There we are. Is that better?

This is a most generous gesture.

I never make generous gestures,

as these two will tell you.

Thank you very much, Miss Holm.

It's a name which might be

of assistance to you.


Oh, really?

In certain quarters where the name

of Barring has perhaps lost its magic.

Good night, Mr. Barring.


Good night...

...Miss Holm.

Charming lady.

Yes, isn't she?

Now I've seen everything.

- There you are.

- Thank you, sir.

- Tell me, are you married?

- Yes, Mr. Barring.

- Any children?

- A boy.

- And a girl.

- Uh-huh.

- And another on the way.

- Oh.

You love children.

I loathe them.


- Let's all go dancing.
