WAITER SETS DOWN DRINKS

in front of the SS officer who took the money. A lieutenant,

he’s at a table with his girlfriend and a lower-ranking

officer.

WAITER:

From the gentleman.

The waiter is gesturing to a table across the room where

Schindler, seemingly unaware of the SS men, drinks with the

best-looking woman in the place.

LIEUTENANT:

Do I know him?

His sergeant doesn’t. His girlfriend doesn't.

LIEUTENANT:

Find out who he is.

The sergeant makes his way over to Schindler's table.

There's a handshake and introductions before -- and the

lieutenant, watching, can't believe it -- his guy accepts

the chair Schindler's dragging over.

The lieutenant waits, but his man doesn't come back; he's

forgotten already he went there for a reason. Finally, and

it irritates the SS man, he has to get up and go over there.

LIEUTENANT:

Stay here.

His girlfriend watches him cross toward Schindler's table.

Before he even arrives, Schindler is up and berating him for

leaving his date way over there across the room, waving at

the girl to come join them, motioning to waiter to slide

some tables together.
