I'd prefer you to go

and stand by your apple stall.

Ladies and gentlemen,

I've been speaking to Mr. Verloc,

and since you're all regular patrons

and good friends,

he's going to let you

have your money back.

There'll be no money back, I tell you.

Go on, get off.

Please don't pay any attention to him.

I tell you, you're crazy. I had it all fixed.

- Will you mind your own business?

- Of all the obstinate people...

If you don't go away, I'll call the police.


Renee, start refunding the patrons

their money.


None of that.

You haven't been here before. Hop it.

Thank you for your trouble.

I'm sure you meant well.

Not at all. I like trouble.





How many?

Two seats, please.



Thank you.

- How many?

- MAN:
Two shillings, please.

Two shillings?


Take your change, please.

- How many?

- One.

- How many?

- None, thanks.

Vegetables is all ready for dishing up.

Please tell Mrs. Verloc, miss.

There you are, ma'am.

I've got to hurry home now

because me husband's having trouble

with his kidneys again,

and I can't leave him for long.

Your young brother's looking after them.

- What, the kidneys?

- No, the vegetables.

Oh, Stevie, have you done

all this by yourself?

Oh, come on, don't be so modest.

Well, we didn't have to pay them back

their money after all.


Always that woman, Mrs. Jones,

manages to make the cabbage brown.

I'm always telling her

you like things green.

I'll make you a salad.

Stevie, run next door

and get a nice big head of lettuce.

Long or round? I like long best.

Whichever's freshest.

Tell them to charge it.

We very nearly wouldn't have been able

Joseph Conrad

Joseph Conrad (Polish pronunciation: [ˈjuz̪ɛf ˌkɔn.rad]; born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski; 3 December 1857 – 3 August 1924) was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. Though he did not speak English fluently until his twenties, he was a master prose stylist who brought a non-English sensibility into English literature. Conrad wrote stories and novels, many with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of what he saw as an impassive, inscrutable universe.Conrad is considered an early modernist, though his works contain elements of 19th-century realism. His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced numerous authors, and many films have been adapted from, or inspired by, his works. Numerous writers and critics have commented that Conrad's fictional works, written largely in the first two decades of the 20th century, seem to have anticipated later world events.Writing near the peak of the British Empire, Conrad drew, among other things, on his native Poland's national experiences and on his own experiences in the French and British merchant navies, to create short stories and novels that reflect aspects of a European-dominated world—including imperialism and colonialism—and that profoundly explore the human psyche. more…
