Yes. I know how it is when you're

both working. It's just the same for us.

How much is that one?

Same as the others,

- Hello.

- Hi, Martina.

Hey, may I give you something?

My mother's cat has

run off. We're afraid...

the traffic will scare her

and she'll lose her way.

She's never been outside.

- My mum's a nervous wreck.

- How long has she been gone?

Three days.

But she won't find any food in this weather.

For Mum it's worse

than if a child had died.

Sounds stupid, but you know how it is.

I'll keep my eyes open.

Give my regards to your mum.

Thanks, and the same to yours,

and Merry Christmas if I don't see you.

You too.

What's up with you?

Can't you say bye?

- See you.

- Bye.

More than he usually says!

He's at a difficult age.

Why don't you fetch the decorations

for once? The boxes are in the hallway.

What's up?

What are you doing?

Who's that supposed to be? You?

What have you got in your hand?

The other one.

Give it to me.

Do you think you have a chance?

Give it to me.

What's this?

Sleep in heavenly peace

- Merry Christmas.

- Thank you.

It's Part 5.

Merry Christmas.

Thank you.

Mr. Mitterbauer,

please come to the service center.

A customer's waiting.

Dear customers,

the furniture department has...

One's missing.

Then go and look for it.

- Have you already had a go?

- I've never raced.

- Never.

- No.

My friend just invited me along.

And there's another bit of track

and a cart,

you can drive absolutely ace there.


I drive really loads when I'm in Macedonia.

My dad said I can drive by myself

when I'm bigger.

Yes, but you have to be five foot tall here.

My dad said maybe in two years' time.

I know a place

where you can drive before that.

I have a radio-controlled car at home.
