- Thank you.

Is there a private bathroom?

Certainly, Monsieur. Madame

Ashenden has insisted on that.


- Madame.

Your wife, Monsieur.

She arrived yesterday. You were

What about a nice private picnic

Sure. That means in 48 you'll

You're looking for anybody

around here?

I'm looking for my wife.
