- What would you like to drink?

- Pernod.

Well, that's not good for little girls.

"Little girl" yourself!.

Garon? Un Pernod.

Oui, madame.


- Ca va?

- Oui. Ca va.

- You are American.

- Yes.

I hope you don't mind.

No. I've got nothing against Americans.

- You going on a party?

- I don't know.

You never know in this lousy town.

You don't like Paris?


Why dont you go somewhere else?

- There isn't anywhere else.

- You're in a fine mood.


I like your dress.

Do you?

I don't like your hat.

Well, I still like your dress.

I buy a different one every day.

How would you like to buy me dinner?

- Why not?

- Where shall we go?

Anywhere. I don't care.

Do you know, uh, Pharamond?

- No. No. Pharamond? No.

- The food's good.

Well, this is something.

Let's get a taxi.

Are we going to eat in there?

Well, maybe youd like to keep the cab

and go on to Maxim's, hmm?

Well, as long, as you say,

the food is good.

- Hi, Jake.

- Hello, Jake. You're coming to the dancing, arent you?

- Dancing?

- Yes, you must come. We're all going.

It's at the Rue Sainte Genevive.

Yes. Sure.

Of course he's coming.

- And bring your friend.

- Yes, I will.

I don't want to sit there.

I want to sit over there...

where I can see.

- Who is that Jakes got with him?

- I don't know.

- Who are your friends?

- Oh, some writers and artists.

Oh, there are a lot of them

on this side of the river.

- Too many.

- I think so.

Still, some of them make money.

I suppose so. Anyway, it's cheaper

to live here than in New York.

- Louis?

- Oui, monsieur?


Well, you were right.

The food was good.

I didn't like the coffee.

All right.

I'll admit it could be better.

- Where do we go now?

- That's up to you.

What about that dancing
