Good bye.

"Drilling a Home"

by George Harrison.

"At very close range,

c.f. intermolecular

strong repulsive forces

are not known..."

Of course. Of course!

But apples...


Why, my good man, they've

been falling down for years.

But from that to infer that...



Could it be possible?

Well, eppur si muove.

Somebody had to think of it

sooner or later. Huh!

Those Americans.

No wonder. Such budgets!

"Love Scene"

by George Harrison.

"Dream Scene"

"Cowboy Music"

by George Harrison.


Listen, he keeps inviting

you out with people.

If he wants you for a movie,

he's gonna ring up your agent, right?

What's the problem?

Oh, um... We're having

a bit of trouble at the moment.

No, she's doing great.

Yeah, we're having a party tonight.

I'd like you to come along.

It's at eight o'clock.

Ask for me

and I'll look after you, course.

Yeah, you'll be okay.

That's what I like about you.

You're much cooler than the others.


Okay. See you then.


Oh, that's the boy, Fido.

Hi there.

Remember me?

We met at the elevator.

I'm sorry to disturb you.

Could you spare us some ice?

- Ice from the fridge.

- Er... fridge?


Oh. Yes, by all means.

Excuse me.

May I?

- It seems to be stuck.

- Yes.

- There we are.

- That's a lot of ice you got there.

Well, I hope there's enough for you.

- What's that?

- Oh, that's a mantis.

A praying mantis.

It is a tropical insect.

This is the female.

A solitary creature.

She has a habit of devouring

the male of the species

after the love embrace.

- Just like birds.

- Oh, no, no... You're wrong.

Birds are essentially monogamous

and love their mates.

I mean girls.

Oh, I see.

- Well, I have to split.

- Split?

- I mean I must be going.
