Is Mimino your name

or your surname?

- Mimino is "falcon" in Georgian.

- I can see the resemblance.

- See you, old man.

- Bye!

- Valiko! What's your shoe size?

- 42

Natella bought me some shoes,

size 41, but they don't fit me.

Give them to Anzor, he's size 41

Falcon and Hawk! Stop littering

the airwaves immediately!

By the way, Hawk, it's not Anzor

that's size 41, it's me.

- Got that? Over.

- Got it.

If you chain a big plane and your

helicopter together, which one would win?

The chain.

Look, she's gotten changed already.

- You should say hello

- Hello

When you're not here, she doesn't play.

She's a good girl, Lali.

In Europe nobody plays pianos any more.

They play electricity now.

You can't play electricity,

you'd get electrocuted.

- Electrocuted?

- No, they wear rubber gloves.

In rubber gloves it'd

be all right. Got it?

Keep playing, Lali.

Valiko, Zarbazan is here.

Zarbazan, what took you so long?

- Can't you see, the pass is closed.

- And what if it opens?

The cow won't fit.

Sell it here.

Who's going to buy it here?

Here everyone knows it.

- Valiko, take this.

- No, I said!

It's not a plane,

it's a butterfly, damn it!

May you be eaten

by wolves! Let's go.

Boss, maybe this colour?

This one?

An official reprimand,

loss of bonuses and a ticket!

What are you looking at?

Go work!

- Write me a reference.

- What reference?

I want to return to big aviation.

Isn't it a bit late for you?

Think about it.

I have thought.

I'm sorry, Ivanych.

- How many years have you been

working for us? - Eight.

Boss, how about this colour?

Why are you coming in

without knocking?

Go out in the corridor and

wait until you're called in.

Then choose your own colour

and paint it yourself.

I'm leaving.

Aristofan, I was joking.
