-H'm, yes. What's her name again?

-Ludovine Jarisse.

That's not a name, it's a catastrophe.

We'll call her Divine.

Okay, she'll be fresh meat for the

slave market.

See, easy as pie!

Now you're Divine.

And now let's go home.

I give you my apartment while I'm

gone. I lose nothing. And you profit.

Here's the entrance.

The living room. I only pay 2000

francs year, nice, no?

-Yes, it's really pretty.

-I even have a piano.

And here's the bedroom.

It's big, my bed!

But your car? How can you afford it?

The car's something else.

Obviously, not from what I earn,

but I worked it out.

Right now it's a bit messy, but if one

goes away, it's like that.

fault, but I'll clean it up.

You should tell the milkman to ring.

That's elementary.

Up already?

I thought you begin work at 11.

Yes but I can't get used to not

getting up early. So I go shopping

and it gives me a walk.

-What are you doing there?

-I don't know who spilled the milk.

That develops arms and chest. You

need that, I've noticed.

Lift your chin. Throw back your

shoulders. Are you doing my


You eat all that bread? Stick to the

crust, the rest makes you swell.

But don't starve yourself. You have

to be fit to wear the fountain

costume. Want to see it?

Those are pearls. That's spun glass.

All the rest's your skin. Remember!


Ren, she's charming.

Slowly, con amore, passionately!

I've got

to do something for you!

Divine, you're stunning!

I've got

to do something for you!
