Het echte leven


if he brings his own knife.

He has his own personal knife.

You definitely won't bring your own knife.

- He stands like this and goes...

He turns around a few times

and then...


- Something like this.

Not like that, of course.

- Just listen for once.

I've been listening all along.

- Listen and don't interrupt.

You won't turn it into an act.

You won't bring a knife

You come into

a fully-stocked kitchen.

You came in... You...

I don't how how to say it.

You're just cutting a cucumber.

Let's focus on that.

And then everything will be fine.

I'm going to get coffee.

- I'd like a cappuccino.

What do you want?

- Tea, please.

Are we going to do it again?

Or do you want coffee first?


It doesn't matter.

- It was fine.

Sorry, Simone.

- Again.

I saw Dirk's face again.

Concentration, please.



- Well?

Yes, I found someone.

He's really nice.



Are you in love?

Of course.

This way we'll never

see each other again.

I know it's difficult,

but I miss you too.

So come back to me.

- No, we have to persevere.

Otherwise, we're no good.

This proves it too, doesn't it?

I didn't write that letter

for nothing.

Just do as I asked.

Find someone and fall in love.

There you go.

Hey, girl.

Have a seat.

I'll be right with you.

The view makes our job so attractive.

We see them, but they can't see us.

Not like that, Fjodor.

Stand beside me

and look at me.

The view makes our job so attractive.

We see them, but they don't see us.

Who cares?

Sjon, we can talk about this forever,

but you're just here for the tidbits.

Get it?

Do you see this? And this?



Get it?

Your turn.

Damn it, Fjodor.

Stop it, asshole.

Jesus Christ. You're doing it

on purpose. Get lost.
