So you're Mr. Duval's grandson?

You know my granddad?

The old gentleman

on the fourth floor?

He's a dear.

I helped to clear his cellar

of the bad vibes attacking his wine.

But the cellar's flooded now,

so I can't help.

Weird tea.

The leaves are pre-masticated lightly

by Tibetan monks.

- Pre-masticated?

- Lightly.

The enzymes present in saliva

cause premature fermentation,

creating that slightly bitter taste.

I have to get back to it.

If I fail my exams, the year's wasted.

I guess I'll see you often then?


There's a thread hanging

from your shirt.

Can I remove it?

I'm itching to do it.


It's like a limpet.

- A what?

- A limpet.

A mollusk. You need dynamite

if you want to get one off a rock.

Forget the dynamite for now.


Want it as a souvenir?






What's that getup?

Like that, you look as if

a tiger mauled you.

Mom, it's grunge.

OK, so tell us.

What's grunge?

You can't understand.

Dressing like a bum?

What is "grunge"?

I looked in a dictionary.

You read now?

Hold on.

It's a word for the fungus

between your toes.

- No way.

- Charming, huh?

Your father's staying

for dinner tonight.

Can you get some wine?

He's using our cellar

to store his bottles.

Couldn't he try opening one

for once?

He'll appreciate it.

He only bothers about me

when his cellar floods.

Even if I get a really pricey wine,

he'll find it...


Dad, wait!

Drop me off. I'm late.

Have a good day, too.

Fleur, you forgot your scarf!

Didn't you forget anything today?

I don't know. What?

Forget it.

Have a good day.


You know, kiddo,

I'm in no position

to nag you about smoking.

But as your father,
