But you just told me

that your heart is given away.

But, sweet child, you understand so little.

It is only because I love you

that I tell you the truth.

Szabuniewicz, my boots.


It is imperative that I speak to you at once.

Imperative? What makes imperative?

- I'm just about to start for the embassy.

- The embassy has been evacuated.

Run along, my dear.

Here are the papers.

- Is it everything?

- Everything.

The code, a full list of names

and addresses of our men in Warsaw.

- Our government in London is waiting for it.

- I will deliver it.

Four days from now, the British submarine

will pick you up off Saint Jean de Luz.

It will take you to England.

You must be there on the 16th.

Don't worry, Doctor.

I, Tadaeusz Boleslav Count Prokoszny,

will get to England, even if I have to swim.

Do you have transportation for me?

I have engaged a taxi. It's waiting outside.

Fools! Why don't you learn to drive?

Fools! Pigs! Fools!


Why don't you attack the Germans?

They said the government will pay.

Where is the government?

- This must be the last taxi in Paris.

- It was. I'm ruined.

I was promised 10,000 francs

to drive a gentleman out of Paris tomorrow.

- That's too bad.

- Yes, sir.

- Excuse me?

- Please.

- I will give you 10,000 for it.

- For this?

- Yes, I would like it only as a souvenir.

- 10,000 francs!

And one more.

Surely the Polish Embassy has automobiles.

- Instruct them to send one.

- I'll go immediately to the embassy.

But I fear the Consul has taken

all four automobiles with him.

Why does that pig need four automobiles?

Evidently a man who signs papers

is more important

than one who is ready to die for Poland.

- All packed.

- So now, child, get me vehicle.

Yes, sir. Vehicle?

Get me automobile, get me plane,
