[Chuckles] Don't miss the view, Mr. Gregory.

- It's the Fair.

- I'll wait and see the one in New York.

You would. I'll take California.

Hey, Mr. Essex, come over on this side...

and maybe you can see your wife from here.

Hey, Mr. Essex, wake up.

Paul. Paul?

Pop! Hey, Pop, something's wrong.


- He must be sick.

- Take your seats, please. We're landing.

Your seats, please. Something wrong?

- Is he... dead?

- [Steward] Must have been his heart.

- [Man] What's the trouble?

- Go back to your seats, please. We're about to land.

- Please be seated.

- [Woman] I don't know what happened.

L- Look, Pop. The radiogram was on the floor.

"Sign of Scorpio indicates disaster...

"if zodiac obligations ignored.

Unsigned. "

"Zodiac"? Isn't that the chart

astrologers use to tell fortunes?

And Scorpio, I believe, is the

unfortunate symbol of death.

Not correct, but thank you.

- Say, Pop, have you seen Paul's briefcase?

- No.

- [Woman] Too bad about Mr. Essex.

- It was here a minute ago.

Where's Gregory?

Perhaps will find same

holding briefcase in Customs.

Why, I'll take care of him.

Say, Pop, l- I just

thought- Paul's wife-

If she's there to meet him,

what are you gonna tell her?

Only that which comes from heart.

- [All Chattering]

- [Man] Hi, Ed!

- I don't see Paul yet. - Paul

wouldn't be in the line yet-

- Oh, there's Charlie over

there. Mr. Chan! - Who? Oh, uh-

Oh, Mr. Chan!

- I'd better go back to Customs and try to find Gregory, Pop.

- Mmm.

Hello, Charlie. It's grand to

see you again. Where's Paul?

Oh, uh, you don't know my uncle, Mr. Redley.

- I've heard a lot about you, Mr. Chan.

- Thank you.
