The palace,

we stay open very late.

Sonya, are you sure this

is the right stuff?

He's a heart surgeon, right?

He'd be a healthy eater.

I've got this.

Aren't they harder to cook?

You boil and drain, 8 minutes.

I'll do everything else,

you just stuff it in the microwave.

Are you sure he's not married

or something?

No, I've checked him out.

So what is it that you like

about this man?

He doesn't treat me

like a princess.

It's almost as if

he doesn't know who I am.

Maybe he doesn't.

He might be very badly informed.

Can we be of an assistance, sir?



Are you working tomorrow?

Not at the hospital.

I'm writing a paper from Monday

morning, it's part of my thesis.

I have to be home by midnight.

How do you relax?

Doing such a stressful job?

I listen to jazz.

I'm not sure I like jazz.

You should go to Ronny Scott's.

I can't just go places,

you know.

It's not the same

listening to records.

Jazz is in the moment.

You have to be there, it's improvise.

Just like life.

My life is completely


You mean you're told where to go

and who to shake hands with?


But within that framework,

you improvise.

You look at someone for a clue

as how to start a conversation.

And you let it flow from there.

You improvise all the time.

And if you can improvise...

You like jazz.

I've got to check

on the supper.

- Pretty hot stuff, eh?

- What?

You in the kitchen.

Yes, hot stuff.

You can say that.

Hot stuff...

So hearts can't actually

be broken?

A heart can receive a shock

so violence it never recovers.

Yes, but can they actually break?

My colleagues might disagree...

But I believe for instance that

Maria Carlos died of a broken heart.

You don't like my food.


No, it's lovely.

You're obviously very good.
