- No, no clues.

I watched all through dinner.

I didn't see anyone who looked

the white orchid type.

I'll be back in a minute.

Scissors should not be under.

They should be over

So I can put

my hands on them.

- Good evening, madam.

- Good evening.

This corsage was delivered

to me without a card.

Can you tell me

who sent it?

No card? No card.

- If madam would tell me

her room number.

- Seventeen.

Seventeen. We have a standing

order to send white orchids

every night to the lady in 17.

- It's in the book.

- It was in the book.

It isn't in the book anymore.

Why don't you read

the book every day?

The lady left us last night.

Yes, she left last night.

Oh, I see.

Then I'll return the flowers

to the gentleman who sent them.

It is quite impossible.

Very much impossible.

You see, he left months ago.

Yes, months ago.

Six months ago.

What does the number matter?

I think you'd better

stop sending them.

Very well, madam.

What happened?

Didn't you like your admirer?

- I found out who sent them.

- Who?

A man who died months ago

to a woman who died yesterday.

- What?

- Who died yesterday

in my room.

Now they're both gone.

All that's left of them

is a standing order

for white orchids.

Now you mustn't jump

to conclusions.

The woman was Portuguese

and very charming.

Left to join a gentleman.

They were both cured.

Do you always lie

so considerately?

I'm not lying.

No, of course not.

You call it therapy.

Protect the patients

from fear.

Keep away all

bad associations.

But I'm not fooled,


I know death

is a guest here.

He sent me his compliments


No, he didn't.

But somebody else did.

That was Professor Linnaker

on the phone.

Professor Linnaker?

He wanted to make sure

that you'd arrived all right.
