[telephone ringing]

- Yes?

- Irina, my angel.

[speaking Russian]

How are you?

[sighs] What do you want?

Well, it's been such

a long time, hasn't it?

I'd been meaning to call you up and

have a nice little chat with you.

But where does time go, hmm?

Where do you think?

Sidney, I'm busy.

Well, this won't take long.

I understand that you're

looking for a certain person,

and that you're prepared

to pay a very handsome price.

Hold on.


[clears throat]

Talk to me.

[jazz music playing]


We need a hotel.

[man] We need a better

plan than drugs up my bum.

- Welcome to the Chateau Marmont.

- Thank you.

- [grunts]

- [tires screech]

Stop! Stop!

- Oh, my God! I am...

- You nearly killed him!

- I am so sorry.

- Darling, are you all right?

- He could've killed me.

- Where's the manager?

Uh, this way, please.


I only hope this suite

goes some way

towards making up

for this unfortunate accident.

It'll do.

And call a doctor.

- I need some painkillers.

- [man] Right away, sir.

Send us a personal shopper, will you?

We seem to have misplaced our clothes.

[man] Absolutely.

Chop-chop. On you go.

[music playing]


Fix us a drink, darling.

We're supposed to be going

on fuckin' holiday.

[Harry] We've gone abroad, haven't we?

It's what you wanted.

Los Angeles is not holiday.

It's a fuckin' lobotomy.

And being hunted down by Joseph Stalin

is far from relaxing. Gin and tonic?

Lovely. What do you think?

Fuckin' whore.

That's not the look

I was going for, but...

No. Not you. It's Jackie. Look.

[Harry] Oh.

Looks like she's

having trouble at home.

Perhaps we should

pay her a visit.

No, no. Don't get

distracted, darling.

You leave Jackie out of it.
