I don't remember.

All guest are required

to sign the register.

You couldn't have gotten in unless

Mr. Brooks said it was okay...

and you signed that register.

Mr. Brooks must have said it was okay

and I must have signed, right?

Because here I am!

Here I fucking am!

- I'm not feeling too well.

- Want me to call a doctor?

It's okay.

You know, I just--

I kinda--

I keeled over there

'cause I got some bad news...

but I'm gonna shower, shave.

I'm gonna

pull myself together here.

You know how it is, Mac.

You get up on the wrong side of the bed.

- You haven't brushed you teeth.

- When will Mr. Brooks come back?

Not for a very long time.

- Really?

- Yeah. He, uh--

You see, he told me

that he was going away.

- He's gone away.

- Yeah.

And he asked me

to take care of his apartment.

- You're taking care--

- Yeah. Because--

- Because we're sisters.

- You're sisters?

I'm the sister.

I mean, I'm his half sister.

We have different mothers,

but he gave me his key...

showed me how everything works...

so I'm gonna be fine,

just fine.

- Thanks a lot.

- Sure.

How you doing there,

Mrs. Wetherspoon?


- Hello?

- Hello.

Hey, Walter.

How you doin', buddy?

Who's this?

Who is this?

Okay, look, Walter.

I'm gonna try something here.

I'm a woman.


It's me, Walter.

I'm a woman.

Is this Connie?

No, it isn't Connie.

It's me.

Okay. Forget it.

I'm a man.

I'm Amanda. I'm Steve's sister.

Wait till you get a load of me.

Steve doesn't have a sister.

Can I talk to Steve, please?

You are--

I mean, you can't.

It's after 1 0:

Steve hasn't shown up for work.

Look, it's really complicated.

Why don't you meet me for lunch

and I'll explain it to you.

Steve would have told me

if he had a sister.

No, he wouldn't.

Blake Edwards

William Blake Crump (July 26, 1922 – December 15, 2010), better known by his stage name Blake Edwards, was an American filmmaker. Edwards began his career in the 1940s as an actor, but he soon began writing screenplays and radio scripts before turning to producing and directing in television and films. His best-known films include Breakfast at Tiffany's, Days of Wine and Roses, 10, Victor/Victoria, and the hugely successful Pink Panther film series with British actor Peter Sellers. Often thought of as primarily a director of comedies, he also directed several drama, musical, and detective films. Late in his career, he transitioned to writing, producing, and directing for theater. In 2004, he received an Honorary Academy Award in recognition of his writing, directing, and producing an extraordinary body of work for the screen. more…
