Yes, you.

What are you doing here?

Dad, I found a restaurant.

You said you were starving.

It went away

Ignore him, Dad.

He's as stubborn as a mule.

Thank you.

Ivan, you have two minutes to eat.

I'm not hungry.

Your time's running out.

Eat that bread.

It's dirty.

Who do you think is going to eat it?

Nobody. We'll just throw it away.

You've got thirty seconds left.

Eat your soup and bread.

I'll be waiting in the car.

Sit down and eat your bread and soup.

Got it?

Yes.

"Yes, Dad."

Alright, sit down.

Lady!

Lady!

Andrei! "Excuse me."

- Just a moment.

Wait for me outside!

Hello? Hi, it's me.

What was that fit about the food?

Trying to be funny?

Get lost.
