Blood and Wine

Synopsis: Bob Rafelson has stated that this is the final part of an informal trilogy he started with "Five Easy Pieces" and continued with "The King Of Marvin Gardens". In the three, Nicholson has now played son, brother and father. In this one, Nicholson is a wealthy wine dealer who has distanced himself from his wife with his philandering and from his son with his negligence. After he steals a diamond necklace with the help of a safecracker partner, Victor, things start coming apart. His wife sets out to interrupt what she thinks is another one of his weekend dalliances, but is really his trip to pawn the jewels.

How do you do?

Is Frank around?

They are down at the boat, Mr. Gates.

- Where do you want this?

- These are for the voyage.

Show him to the boat.

I'm going to put this in the wine cellar.

Sure. Come on.

- You don't look like a maid.

- I'm not. I'm the nanny.

Do I look like a nanny?


Good, Mr. Reese. Much better.

- Much better?

- You're swinging too fast.

- Try to rotate your wrist a little bit.

- What's wrong with my wrist?

I never see anybody

to fish in the grass before.

- Well!

- See?

- Why can't you just buy bait and then fish?

- Fishing begins with bait.

Everything does.

- Where you off to?

- Me?

I'm not going.

They hire an American nurse for the trip.

They go to Jamaica,

Bermuda, St. Barts.

- What are you gonna do?

- I house-sit.

Anyway, he's fine.

Ay, but I miss the baby.

I like babies.

From the shoulder this time.

That one needs a pacifier.

Is that heavy?

You want to rest?

- You know how much a shark weighs?

- A shark? No.

- How much a shark weigh?

- About three times as much as you.

- You don't know that, because you don't know how much I weigh.

- Ah.

Where's the boss?

He's up in the house.

- He'd open a bottle for me.

- I don't have a corkscrew.

What was that?

The baby's kicking inside of the crib.

You don't know that.

She could have fallen out.

- She's not crying.

- That's because she's dead on the floor.

Go check her.

That's why we have a monitor.

She's smart, but she's got

that cubano temperament.

Good for her.


Frank ever come on to you?

He has a beautiful wife.


She ever come on to you?


Uh, you ready?


I can see you

tomorrow night after class.

Hope I didn't interrupt

your beauty sleep.

Well, I'm spared your type of day job.
