The Perfect Host

Synopsis: Injured after committing a bank robbery, John Taylor is desperate to find a place to hide out and approaches the home of Warick Wilson. John manages to get himself invited into the house by posing as a friend of a friend and spinning a sob story of lost luggage and a violent mugging. Inside, Warick, a consummate host, is making the final preparations for an impeccable dinner party. He insists John stay for the party, but as the evening begins it becomes obvious Warick may not be what he first appears.

No, I could not.

Hey, I need to keep an eye

the dinner would you ...?

Yeah, right.

- Have you lived here a long time?

- A while.

Do you live alone?


In case you need to use the phone.

You said you had to fix things.

Thank you.


I'll call you later.

- No luck?

- No.

- Carrots?

- No, I'm fine, thanks.

I hate to ask, could you pass here

another half hour ...

... Until my cousin again


I know I'm teasing,

but it is one of those days.

Yeah, right. Sit back, relax,

solve this.

Tell you what, call the airport

and see if I can locate your luggage.

I would not worry about it.

I left my cousin's information

and said they would call.

- But your cousin is not home, do you?

- Prima.

Your cousin is not.

If you press these people,

will be the last to receive anything.

- What airline was it?

- Quantus.

Hello. I communicate with luggage

Quantus lost at LAX, please.

Yeah, hi. Looking for a luggage ...


- Do you have the receipt for the suitcase?

- No, I was in my wallet.

No, it does not.

What is your name?


Did John Jones?

My parents ...

- It's Jones.

- ... Not very creative.

If, Sydney.


I see.

They have no name Jones.


- What?

- Your luggage, describe.

Wait a minute.

Black suitcase, medium, a ribbon

red on the handle.

Well, if I describe the luggage ...

When will it return?

- This person does not want to deal with me.

- Do not worry, hang up.

Do not worry.

He says the supervisor will return in

an hour, how your cousin is already at home?

I do not know, she did not expect

going to surprise her.

This gets very complicated.

What if you stay for dinner?

You can call the supervisor

in an hour. What do you think?

I think it's a great idea. Thank you.

Okay, I'll call you.
