Don't tell me you want straws, too?

- Yes, I do!

- You do? Okay, here you are!

- Me, too.

- Yep.

Okay, let's say like this:

Welcome to Avalon, our special guests!

- Cheers!

- Cheers!

My baby brother Janne's

back where he started!

Can you say "Laholmsbukten"?

- It'll be like a boarding school.

- A boarding school...?

Yes, for adults. With seminars,

leadership development, coaching...

How boring! Why do they always

have to make fun things boring?

- Are you coming?

- We'll meet you at the car.

Tommy, you know you can't

smoke in the kitchen!

- Damn it, I need that delivery!

- I told you, it's coming!

Coming?! How can I be ready

by Friday? There's too much to do!

You two have obviously worked

together before.

Then we'll need some backup!

I can't let the health inspectors

find you smoking in here!

They can eat my ass!

This kitchen's closed!

Cut the crap

and get me my supplies!

You're coming to Mallorca with me!

You can't stay here.

It's totally crazy!

- Sometimes you have to make cuts.

- Hah hah hah hah!

And the results? Lousy!

Think of your guests!

Sweet dreams!

Try to at least get to bed!

- To hell with it!

- Aren't you in a great mood!

How'd you like standing in this damned

kitchen for twelve, thirteen hours?

Do you miss all this?

- No.

- I'd like you to stay on a little longer.

I could find other things for you

to do besides club work.

There are jobs galore down here.

It's not that.

I have to move on.

I need time.


You'll get your money.

I promised.

On Friday at the opening, alright?

Now let's drop the subject.

A bit more nose there.

Sit down, Janne!

I can't concentrate with

you roaming around like that!

Melon? Here!

Not in the food...

What are you thinking about?



There's a lot to do right now,

with the club opening and everything.

How's your mom?

She's doing great, as always.

But then, quite suddenly

he had contracts and staff all lined up!

So I said to myself: "Okay".

So I'm here for the opening.

That's how it is.

In other words,

you're down here for the money.


I suppose so.

And then?


Cut it out!

Don't be silly!

This is quite interesting.

But, boy, has it become expensive!

"With terrace and sea view"

and even a pool...

What more could you ask for?

Yes, it sounds great.

How do you wish to travel, Sir?

What would suit you?

- Time for me to go.

- Why not sleep on the sofa instead?

- I have sleeping pills, if you need them.

- No.

So tonight I thought I'd have you

meet the staff

to give you an introduction

into our activities.

It makes it easier

if you're someone they know

rather than some stranger.

They're extremely professional.

They are real pros, very competent.

- Hi there!

- See you on Friday?

- Howdy there!

- Hi there, Klas!

- Nice eh?

- Absolutely wonderful!

Heavenly! It's fantastic!

- Just incredible!

- Hi there!

"Donatas" is his name?

Sounds like an ice cream...

He's from Lithuania.

What a clever guy!

He can do everything.

Roofing, masonry, painting, cars...

You know... you can't just

go through your whole life...

letting things happen and hoping

that everything will work out.

I already told them not

to throw them like this...

There are no short cuts to success.

It's a matter of hard work.

You know, you're a real man,

Klas. I'm impressed.

Cut it out!

Stick to the subject instead

of acting silly.

- Okay, what was the subject?

- Your lifestyle.

Would you call it

"rock'n roll" - or what?

I don't know what I call mine.

What do you call yours?

Good question...
