- Why?

- I just think you're so sweet.

- Uh-oh... did you hurt yourself?

- Ah, just a little. No problem.

Masl, go inside for a bit.

There's... it's snack time.

- Hello, hello.

- Good morning.

- Do you know Masl at all?

- That one? No, not really.

- No, just ogling children.

- What?

As if you didn't hear...

Don't you need to be somewhere?

- Can't I be here?

- I'm asking if you have somewhere else?

No, I'm just on my way home.

Right then. Wouldn't it be nice,

if you just pissed off there then?


- What?

- Is everything right?

Yes, I just don't

feel like going in.

No, I know. But shouldn't we

just make the most of this?

I mean, if it's dreadful,

we just go home.

- Promise?

- Of course.

Let's just enjoy being together, Ok?

Hey! See that one there

in the snakeskin boots.

- That's Hannes.

- No way!

Breathe in, breathe out...

Feel my lips, then head

straight for me...

- Aren't you gonna leave some for me?

- Yes, this is, well, my boss.

- Siggi.

- Hello, Agnes.

Agnes, I know all about that...

Nice to meet you.

- Yes, you too.

- How are you? How do you like it?

- It's just fine.

- Isn't it?

- It's just...

- Are you happy?

- Yes I am.

- And how's the set of wheels?

- Well, it's just...

Isn't it? I told you so...

Hey Slvi, I should introduce

you to Hannes...'s about time he met our star...

Hannes, Slvi.

- This is so good for the baby's blood.

- What did you say?

This is so good for the baby's blood.

See, she kicks.

Just what the doctor ordered.


Cheers, everyone now...

You're wonderful.... cheers!

And if this keeps going so well,

the guy in the snakeskin boots

will have to dish out higher bonuses...

Just so that's clear...

But we have another

reason to celebrate...
