- I know.

From December 1960 to March 1963.

- You are very well informed.

- But I am sure that

your present career

gives you more satisfaction.

Hold it!

This is the fruit, Dr. Valle.

I beg your pardon.

First course is yellow.

Second course red.

Fruit is orange,

the dessert is chestnut.

- Thank you.

In each container is

a nourishing substance

with an abundance of

all necessary nutrients.

And no danger of

indigestion or ulcers?

Those come in

special containers.

Exactly like the others.

I have created

the first example

of gastronomic socialism.

I am sure you

will appreciate that.

- May I know what I am

eating? - Of course.

Those are veal medallions

in Madeira sauce.

- I think the original taste

could be chemically preserved.

- I eliminated it on purpose.

As Freud pointed out in his time,

the gustatory or olfactory stimuli,

just like the sexual ones,

lead only to pleasure

for its own sake,

and result in a

waste of energy.

- But one cannot

evaluate pleasure

in terms of productivity.

- Why not?

Productive energy is too precious

to risk wasting it.

Excuse me, Dr. Valle.

I have some urgent

business to attend to.

But we shall meet again later.

The night is long.

If you want to stretch your legs,

I'll show you the park.

It's a good idea.

When you return,

we'll talk of important things.

- You don't like

the night, Dr. Valle?

- On the contrary.

Particularly in your company.

I was thinking about

Engineer Nosferatu.

He is a very strange man.

- Like all talented people.

- No, it's not that.

For years I've been

working for him,

and I did not even

know he existed.

While he, it seems,

knows all about me.

- He likes to make an impression.

But he loves people.

He lives for people.

- Corinna. Do you know

why he invited me here?
