-- What a quite place!

- Indeed, yes, very quiet.

There is your bathroom,


I see that we have

the same bathroom.

I think I'd better introduce myself

I am Vera Claythorne.

Mrs. Owen's new secretary.

My name is Emily Brent.

Is there anyting you want,


I would like to see

Mrs. Owen.

I'm Mrs. Owen's new secretary.

I expect you know that.

No, Miss, I don't

know anything.

Just the list of the gentlemen and the ladies

who are invited for the weekend.

Didn't Mrs. Owen

mention me?

I haven't seen Mrs. Owen yet. We

only came here a few days ago.

This is a large house.

What staff have you here?

Just me and Rogers,


- Does Mr Owen know we have arrived?

- He is not here yet, Sir.

-- And where is Mrs Owen?

- She was delayed in London.

I got a letter.

They'll be here for dinner, eight o'clock, sir.

We tell the story, in Ireland, about the 2

Englishmen ...

... who was cast away in an

uninhabited island for 3 years.

and never spoke to each other because

they had not been introduced.

I'm not English!

My name is Prince

Nikita Starloff.

Call me Nicky.

Well, that breaks the ice, gentlemen.

I am judge Quinncannon.

How do you do, sir? I'm

Dr. Armstrong.

My name is Lombard.

Philip Lombard.

I am General Mandrake.

- Sir John Mandrake, isn't it General?

Some years ago, I was called in for consultation.

Your wife was ill.

My wife is dead!

If you, gentlemen, would be good enough

to follow me, I'll show you to your rooms.

- I'm afraid I didn't catch your name.

- Blore.

-- Blore?

- William Henry Blore.

- Oh, Philip Lombard.

-- I'm afraid you got the wrong bag!

You are very observing, Mr


C.M., Charles Morley, an

old friend of mine.

I like his taste.

I even borrow his clothes.

Oh, excuse me, doctor. I thought

this was a closet.

- it seems we are sharing the bathroom.

- Oh, I did not know.

The only time

I was batchelor ...

... is when I

get dressed for dinner.

- Oh, let me help you.

- Thank you.

-- Do you know this part of the English coast?

- No I can't care do.

Something magical

about the island.

Yes, like a

little world, that's all.

How do you like spend

last days here?

No thanks, I think

the weekend will be enough.

We all build islands

in imagination.

represent the escape.

Half of my patients

are sick ...

... because the are trying to

escape reality.

-- And what is your answer?

- Oh, I tell a fairytales.

I build an island of

imagined security.

Don't you even give them

medicine, doctor?

Do you believe in

justice, judge?

-- Mr Blore?

-- Yes?

The bathroom is yours.

-- Do you think they are done?

- Done enough for them.


Don't stay there

gowking, get it up.

Did you wash the floor this morning?

Do you suppose I have

time for everything?

It is not right to go inviting

a house full of guests.

I'll talk to Mr.

Owen when he comes.

You tell him we're quitting.

The agency did not say a

house was so big ...

... and so lonely.

- You knew it was an island.

- With only one house.

I'm extremely nervous.


What they do not know

won't hurt them.

Never to pick a

bird before it dies.

Ladies and Gentlemen..,

may I propose a toast ...

... to our gracious

Hostess, Mrs. Owen.

A, a, Doctor. I saw you! You drink water.

That's bad luck.

Water never hurts

anyone, sir.

Especially in

my profession.

Don't forget the old

proverb, doctor.

Never trust

a man who does not drink.

Sounds like the Bible.

Great book.

And now I'm giving to you, our

charming host. Mr. Owen.

Jolly good fellow!

And I hope that would conclude

all possible toasts.
