In Paris

you must have many friends.

I want you to meet

all these charming...

May I introduce you to...

This is Mdme. Scholoscka...

What time?

Always hard to meet, gentlemen.

Dr. Curie

Good afternoon.

I had no idea that

it was going to be a party.

No... I believe you, monsieur.

They're pulling up suddenly

these parties

out of the goodness of

women's hearts.

My wife wishes the young student

of mine to make many friends.

Well, I... I'm very bad

at parties.

It's impossible for me to focus.

My mind won't follow the

most simple thought.

Oh, I beg your pardon.

You are quite alright.

Maybe I'll come back

some other day.

No... I want to talk to you

about this student of mine.

Perhaps we can find

a quiet corner

where we can talk.

Of course. Of course.

And as this student has

very little money, and is

I believe, extremely talented

I thought you might have

room available

at physics and chemistry.

Oh, I should be very glad.

Unfortunately at the moment

we are extremely

crowded ourselves.

In that case...

However, my workroom is

quite large.

I would hesitate to ask you

to share your own laboratory...

I have shared it

with students before.

You have?

Yes, and some of them were

very quiet and pleasant.

On the other hand

one fellow was most troublesome.

He used to whistle constantly.

Well, I can assure you that

this student is very serious.

Then I should be very happy.

I think you will find that

she is very sincere.


Oh, my God.

These are my granddaughters.

Excuse me.


Mademoiselle. Mademoiselle.

Bon Appetit. A coffee?

Yes, thank you. Tea.

That's coffee.

That's coffee, too.


Please sit down, everybody.

Sit down. Wait a moment.

Come along... children.

It's time for your performance.

Would you excuse them, Dr. Curie.
