she's very nice.

She's sorry it was so short

but I said not to worry

because now you're with us.

I've brought you breakfast.

I've made tea.

And coffee, and chocolate.

Not knowing what you preferred

I made tea

but I wasn't sure you liked tea,

so I made coffee and chocolate too.

Tell me what you don't like

so I can make what you want.

I'll take off the tape so you can eat

but you mustn't shout

because Violette is very tired.

So will you promise not to shout?


F*ck you! You bastard!

I'll kill you!

I'm in Clment's place!

Are you in, Mr Clment?

It's Mrs Dupr, your concierge.

What is it?

- I heard a noise when I was vacuuming.

Is everything all right?

I can make a noise if I want to.

Sorry to bother you,

but I heard screams

and thought you might have a problem.

You never know.

I can make a noise if I want to.

Yes, darling.

Yes, I know.

He didn't mean to disturb you.

Yes, my angel,

if that's what you want.

You know...

I love you.

How I love you!

You must be starving.

I've made you dinner.

The problem is

I can't take off your gag.

Violette would be upset.

She was really angry.

You woke her with your screams.

I did stick up for you

but she wouldn't listen.

Violette is very tired lately.

Do you promise

not to be angry with her?

Thank you.

I like eating early.

It makes the evening longer.

But what I really like is musicals.

You know the difference

between tragedy and comedy?

For instance,

If I cut my finger,

just a little cut on the fingertip

a prickle, a thorn, anything

that's tragedy.

But if I die before you

that's comedy because

I'm old and you're young

you have life ahead of you,

sun, the sea, girls...

I never thought about that

before I met you.

Really? Do you mean it?
