IV. A young man believes he's made a powerful connection to a stranger, a young woman, in the simple act of lighting her cigarette, and proceeds to convince her of the same and as such that there is a future for them from that point on, and not at some unspecified time down the road.

from your wife,

but it hasn't worked so far.

Can I get the bill?

You lost your wallet?

You lost your wallet.

Is this yours?

[laughing]

Wow.

Yeah, that's my wallet.

Merci beaucoup.

Money's gone.

I recently lost my wallet,

but I managed

to get my money back.

A young man should never

be without cash.

[chuckles]

Knock yourself out,

young man.

You lost your wallet?

Did you lose

my pictures, too?

Pictures?

How could I?

How did you get these?

I took these, like,

five minutes ago.

Aren't you full

of surprises today.

You took off your ring.

Ben, your keys.

Mm.

Ben, wait up!

[Man on speaker device

speaking Gujarati]

[speaks Gujarati]

I have come into the city

only to do this deal,

so it better be good.

My customer

wants natts, ASAP.

I'm in the middle

of my wedding arrangements,

but I came here to do

this business with you.

Who are you

getting married to?

His name's Chaim.

Chaim in the mood

For love

[snickers]

Where's my invitation

for your wedding?

Did you invite me

to your wedding?

Oh, I wish I had.

with Hasidic people.

I know nothing about them. They

know nothing about Jain peoples.

Strictly business. We don't

come to 47th Street to chitchat.

While you inspect the goods,

I'm going to eat.

Excuse me. Hmm?

You can't eat meat, right?

You Hindus?

No, we are not Hindus.

[clicking tongue] We are Jains.

Hinduism is too

materialistic for us.

No meat, no fish.

And what can't you eat?

No pig, no shrimp.

What else can't you eat?

No onion, no garlic.

No milk and meat together.

No potato, no roots.

Nothing that hasn't been

blessed. Nothing too spicy.

It is exciting the passions,

you know.

The Christians--

they eat everything.

They're like the Chinese.

They never have to

spend too much time

picking a restaurant.
