I know.

Once a lawyer always a lawyer,

don't you think?

Like defrocked priests or retired generals.

Like thieves or sons of whores.

Shut up, crow.

- It's an Indian blackbird.

- Shut it up anyway.

I don't know how, and it cost me

two parrots and a peacock.

Join us.

I like you, I mean it.

You've got style, you can tell

you're well-educated.

The world needs people like you.

Positive men, who know how to impress

with words.

Like you and Sapo.


That "voice off" again?

You can always tell me what you're thinking.

Do you like this country?

Not particularly, too many people

in summer...

.and too windy in winter.

But wind clears away the rubbish.

And it carries off the old people.

I know what we need here because

I know what I need.

I've got plans.

I'm hungry.

It's lunchtime, let me invite you to eat

in my restaurant.

Fine, it's lunchtime.

A great moment:
20 July 1969.

- The day I was born.

- I wasn't around then.

Out of circulation: personal reasons.

In prison, after a bungled attempt at fraud...

"Signe hunch diem albo lapillo"

Come, Mr Lawyer.

Nearly there.

Fish risotto, sea bream, chips,

coffee and liqueurs...

They work for me.

- Greetings!

- Let me introduce Mr Lawyer.

I'm Curvy.


How are you?


Carla, we've already met.

- Mr He-Man, if I remember correctly

- All your doing.

Really? Next time it's my turn then.

He pays nothing from now on.


The Dream.

Lots of Champagne...

lawyer this, lawyer that,

but nothing really grabbed me...

Let's go to the beach.

Show the lawyer your hands.

Amazing isn't it!

Apparently Buddha had hands like that.

To the beach!

It's stirred.

Do you know who he is?

- Who?

- The waiter.

Your father.

Wow, you're something else.

You have to shell out if you want to reap
