get me motorcycle, get me donkey,

but get me.

Yes, sir.

Pardon me, Colonel,

may I make a suggestion?

I tell you, Monsieur, Monsieur...

- Jacobowsky. S.L. Jacobowsky.

- I thought so.

My suggestion is

that you mind your own business.

But strangely enough

we're in the same business.

- The business of escaping.

- This fellow gets on my nerves.

First thing in the morning, Szabuniewicz,

I want waiting here vehicle.

You will see to it, Doctor.

Double vodka, please.

Cosette! Never here when I need her.

Cosette, a double vodka for monsieur.

Our guests have a right to some service.

I want to go with you.

I'll make you forget the other girl.

- Impossible. She's waiting for me.

- Where? Here in Paris?

In Reims. I promised I'd come back for her.

- Good evening, Cosette.

- Good evening.

Since this is my last night in Paris,

I will start with the onion soup.

- Are you leaving us, too?

- Yes, I'm afraid so.

I'm going to try to reach the Spanish border.

- Cosette! Please.

- Yes?

Suppose you were travelling

from Paris to Hendaye,

what would be the best way to go?

I would take the road south to Orleans.

Orleans... Orleans... Orleans.

After that, what course would you suggest?

After the soup? The chicken a la casserole.

Cosette, thank you.

- Cosette, triple vodka, please.

- Yes, sir.

- For you, too, Monsieur Jacobowsky?

- No, no, thank you, Cosette.

You see, the Colonel and I have a problem,

and I must concentrate on it.

Cosette, will you explain

to Monsieur Grabowsky, he has a problem?

- I have no problem.

- The problem of transportation.


My orderly takes care of transportation.

You might explain to the Colonel that

his orderly may encounter some difficulty.

But together we can arrange...

Cosette, will you ask Monsieur Grabowsky
