- Just the one, yeah.

Okay, cool.

Uh, anything else weird or

interesting you might need?

There's a warehouse sale.

This guy's selling all these Sovtek amps,

germanium resistors, Soviet tubes.

I thought I might check

it out, see if you...

No, I'm good. Thank you.

Okay.

Can I use your bathroom

before I head out?

Uh, I'm afraid it's

still out of order.

Still? I'm gonna get someone...

- Don't bother.

- It's really no bother.

No!

Look, Ian, I, uh...

I'm gonna fix it myself. I just

haven't gotten around to it yet.

Please, feel free to

piss in the garden.

Tell me, how is he, really?

My teacher is fragile,

but he has a strong spirit.

He's in such good hands.

He's my family.

And I protect...

Protect his secrets.

And yours too.

MAN:
Actually, hospital management

no longer considers it overtime.

Yes.

Mistress mine.

EVE:
There's only an

hour before sunrise.

I'm well aware of that, my dear.

Is that the really good stuff?

Yes, Eve.

From the French doctor?

Precisely.

So how is the fabulous

Christopher Marlowe tonight?

I told you a thousand times,

never call me that name in public.

Oh.

You nutcase.

I can keep a secret.

You should know that.

But I ask you,

the most outrageously delicious

literary scandal in history...

Dear Eve, that was

four centuries ago.

You've been wearing that

weskit for four centuries.

I was given this in 1586, and

it's one of my favorite garments.

Are you saying that we're never

gonna let the cat out of the bag?

Can't we drop the odd

hint here and there?

It would cause such

thrilling chaos.

I think the world has enough chaos
