Is it working?

But be nice to your mother.

There's mommy. Go brush your

teeth and go to bed.

You too, Karin.

Are you still awake? Go on.

It's half past 9.

That late already?

If it was up to you, they'd stay up

all night.

Did you talk to his teacher?

-Yes, he's doing much better.

See? He's not as stupid as

you think.

What about the lift this


Nothing special. Just a

short circuit.

People almost suffocated.

They came out of the restaurant.

Maybe it was the food.

I checked everything. The customer

has to be satisfied.

Yes, they have to be happy.

Don't throw it out.


-The cap.

I'm collecting them.

What for?

When you have a 100...

you can win a trip to Hawaii.

Why do you want to go to Hawaii?

Of course. But it's a lot of money

You nor your mother will regret it.

It's a surprise for my mother.

She hardly leaves the house, because

of her wheelchair.

Shall we finalise that surprise?

Here's the contract.

Do you want to use my pen?

No, I've got my own.

Please put a signature here.

Thank you. And one here.

Another signature?

Yes, for our administration.

You'll enjoy this for the rest of

your life.

Do you know where the lift is?

Yes, don't worry about me.

Give my regards to your mother.
