I could be in the hotel by now.

- Oh!

- Oh, I'm so sorry! Excuse me.

It's okay. It's okay.

Are you all right?

I lost my suitcase.

Oh. Well, you just report it

over there to Lost Luggage.

No. I... Well, it's not, it's not that.

I left it in the...

um, the airport bar in Houston.

That's... That's

where I came in from. And I, uh, I...

I'm scared to fly,

so I went in there to get...

my courage, if you

know what I mean, and...

Would you read the tags, darling?

Thank you so much.

- Hey! Don't kick it.

- Viviene?

They'll find it.

That's what they're very good at.

- And all you have to do

is just tell them, you know.

- Well, it's, it's...

it's nice of you to say that, you know.

It's nice of you to care...

because, you see, I don't speak French.

That's the thing, I don't speak French.

Well, high school. But, you know,

that doesn't really count.

And... You know, I don't even know

the French word for "baggage."

It's "bagage."

Just like baggage. Bagage.

You got the cards ready?

You ready?

We need a longer cord on this thing.

This is irritating me.

Olivier de la Fontaine.

Try to find out why he's here.

- Hello, Olivier!

- Hi, Kitty.

Oh, what a pretty tie!

And it's got kitties on it!

- And I'm Kitty!

- Funny.

Let me guess.

A Charvet or Dior?

- No, Dior, naturellement.

- Oh! Bingo!

- Your attention, please.

- Arrival of Flight...

This is Kitty Potter

at Charles de Gaulle Airport...

where what I like to

call the international

intelligentsia of fashion...

in all its many mutations

is arriving all around me.

Are we expecting someone

special here today?

- Special?

- Special.

Um, uh... Well, le tout-Paris

has been buzzin' about...

a lollapalooza called Liza...

and her definite, maybe,

appearance on the runway at Chanel.

Robert Altman

Robert Bernard Altman (February 20, 1925 – November 20, 2006) was an American film director, screenwriter, and film producer. A five-time nominee of the Academy Award for Best Director and an enduring figure from the New Hollywood era, Altman was considered a "maverick" in making films with a highly naturalistic but stylized and satirical aesthetic, unlike most Hollywood films. He is consistently ranked as one of the greatest and most influential filmmakers in American cinema. more…
