- I agree.

Your... military friends,... they belong to

your mysterious project?

- Yes.

- How is it going?

- Very well.

- Very well.

Top secret.

You know, someone once told me that...

...when a bureaucrat

wants to keep his job...

...he stamps everything top secret.

Is that true?

It's probably true, sometimes.

I er, hate your secrets, Bernard.


...if I were to tell you...

...even a little bit about

what you call 'my secrets'...

...I might be condemning you to death.

Please trust my judgement.

Now, would you like a drink before

dinner? Or would you like to go out ...

in search of that Italian...

[ Loud music starts ]

How's that then?

Not bad. Let's have

a go then. More magic

How about that?

How about that one over there, Denny?

- Yea, but...

- Do you mind, I want to speak to my sister.

What's the matter, Joan?

Makes you feel big, paying

with the American's money?

Money 's money, innit?

- I wonder what kind of man he is?

- Looking for pick ups.


- Maybe.

Look, Joan. It's you and me against the

world. It's been this way since we were kids.

He offered me his arm

to cross the street.


Yeah! Real boy scout.

...Black leather, black

leather, crash, crash, crash...

...Black leather, black

leather, coo, coo...

[ She shouts something to the boys ]

[ Motor engine starts ]

Never seen a boat before?

You've got to find someone else

today, I haven't got a penny on me.

What do you want, this time?

You couldn't be talking to me.

Why are you doing it?

There couldn't be any money

in it. Is it for kicks?

Huh ?

- I'm gonna have a private yacht any day now.

I am very happy for you.

Now look, if you have anything

to say, please say it, ...

...otherwise move along.

Or I'll call the cops.
