sweep me into his arms,

and carry me away!

A knight who would gaze

into my eyes

and whisper passionately

that they were green,

like priceless emeralds

that he would gladly give

his life to possess.

But they are

not green.

They are blue.

Not emeralds. Sapphires.

Sapphires --

my first love.

- And your latest?

- Diamonds. White, pure, cold.

Virginal. And men?

I haven't found one

to supplant my jewels.

But Andre will be here

at any moment

to take it

to Hollanders.

Hurry. Hurry. Hurry.

Hurry, please.

The more haste,

the less speed, madame.

May I clear out

the window, Mr. Hollander?

Is it so late?

Almost closing time.

- But so light out.

- The long summer days.

The baroness

will soon be here

to take number 239.

- Good evening.

- Good evening.

Mr. Hollander?


I have the honor

to present myself --

night watchman

Johan Christian Lenz

of the Vienna

protective agency.

I've never

seen you before.

That is why I'm presenting

my credentials.

I have been guarding

the national bank.

Hmm. That's not such

a fine recommendation.

My contract said I was

to watch out for burglars,

not directors.

Lenz is nobody's fool.

Mr. Hollander...

I don't like that aspersion

on my ability.

I am one of the agency's

best men.


That is why I was sent here

to Ringstrasse.

There's been

too many robberies lately.

We must put a stop to it.

Good, good.

I shall breathe easier

now that you are here.

Thank you.

Thank you.

The window is ready

to be locked.

The door can wait.

I'll be here until 7:00 tonight,

on a special appointment.

Don't worry. I shall look in

every half-hour.

When Lenz guards a place,

the owners

can sleep peacefully.

So long.

I say thank you.

Thank you. Thank you.

Ah, the great

baroness Horhenfels.
