Very good!

Look straight at me.

Okay, let's take five.

Five minutes everyone!

See you back in 10.

I'm so hungry!

Let's switch to 12.

Ready? All right, let's go.

Very good!


Remember, your chin...

Yeah! Very nice!

Yeah, that's perfect!

One, two, three!

The other side, again!

Very good. Let's go!

You're going to be a dad.

That should be fun.

That's great.

So it'll be in... July?

Well... I don't really know.

I'll have to check my calendar.

I'll call you and we can decide.

I'm busy with the party.

The girls are coming home. I guess

it's time to get this show on the road.

- Or when she's in heat. She's lovely.

- A bit low-set.

- It's never perfect.

- That's true. Nobody's perfect.

Have you seen my purse?

The small one?


- Where are you going?

- I'm going home.

Elsa! Lovisa!

Come on, you two. Time to go!

Do we take it easy

or do we go for it? Take it!

- I'll stay up here.

- Are you ready, or what?

- Huh? Hello!

- You're not dressed.

- Grandma...

- So should I get the food?

Get dressed!

Sweden is so clean;

That's something you forget.

- Hello, mom!

- My little sweetheart...

It's great to see you.

- It's so great to see you.

- Move your bag over there.

- It's in the way where it is now.

- Oh, sorry.

How's the party coming?

Hello? Oh my...

- Hey, sweetie!

- Hello! Darling little sister...

- Good to see you.

- We'll put this away with you here.

- You look great. What happened?

- Nothing. Why?

- Did Janne finally go down on you?

- Cut it out...

- You can feel great without good sex.

- Really? I didn't know that.

- Mommy's tiny little sweetheart!

- Yes...

God, that's a lot of luggage.

Katarina, you'll have to help out.

I don't know what to grab.

I guess I'll take...

- How nice! I've missed this house.

- Everything is the same here.

Great. This place is so calming.

I guess so...

Well, nothing ever happens here.

You'd go nuts here,

you're used to the big city.

That's true, but this is nice

for a while.

Oh, stop it! Turn that off.

- I'm not kidding. I'll beat you!

- Oh, I'm so scared...

Oh my!


- This one is so beautiful.

- I think it's cheesy.

- It's lovely. Don't you have dreams?

- What?

- She hears poorly. Don't mention it.

- What, does she need a hearing aid?

Oh God, you put this on? Come here.

- Whoops...

- You OK?

- Hello?

- Oh good, the food. Let's eat!

Great... Got it.

- Hello!

- Hey, Janne. It's been a while.

- Here, have some wine.

- Thanks.

Will you get some napkins

in the kitchen? This will be messy.

- You want me to go?

- Yes, please.

- I can't believe...

- Elin!

I'm so out of it... Lova,

will you bring the punsch glasses?

- What?

- The punsch glasses, please.

- I don't recall mom ever cooking.

- No, it was rare.

What on earth? I was slaving away

in the kitchen all the time.

- Don't you remember?

- No!

- So what did you make?

- Well, all sorts of things.

- Such as?

- Regular meals. Lova, where are you?

Don't be childish. That's enough.

I'll have a piece of bread.

- Shake a paw!

- Shake a paw. Paw!

- Sit.

- Stay! Look at this!

- One, two, three, four, five.

- Mom?

Why did you turn my room

into an office?

The office?

That was never your room, was it?

- Yes, it was.

- The little ones are asleep now.

What are you doing?

- Did you forget that it was my room?

- You lived in the servant's room.

- Lova stayed in the office a while.

- No.

- Sure. You usually stayed away.

- No, I didn't.

- Didn't Lova stay in the office?

- I stayed in the servant's room...

...for a month before Milan - true.

But my entire childhood...

...was spent in the office.

- I'm sure you're right.

Check out the dork's room.

Look, everything is still here.

- What are you looking for?

- Nothing.

My equestrian prizes!

I was pretty damn good.

I was!

Tomorrow is the big day.

Nothing can go wrong.

Carelessness, laziness, and disorder

will not be accepted.

- Katti, you know what to do?

- Yes.

Janne can get some infrared heaters

in case it gets cold.

- Really? OK, fine.

- Sure thing.

- What did you say?

- Sure.

- I never hear what he's saying.

- Mom!

I can do the seating arrangement

and set the table.

That won't work, darling. You know

you can't keep track of who's who.

- Just make a list!

- I don't want to do a goddamn list.

Lists are pretty good, actually.

I just know that I can...

- I can't be bothered.

- Well, can I finish?

- You're always going on and on.

- No, I don't.

- Elin can't do just one thing.

- You f***ing b*tch!

- Don't fight. I can't stand it.

- Neither can I.

I'll take the dogs out.

Come on, boy. Come here, Saga.

Come, come!

Where are the leashes?

Come here, everybody!

There, there. Let's go outside.


- Are you mad now?

- Yes, I am.

We just got here, and you're already

nagging about lists and crap.

- She just leaves when it gets tough.

- F***ing whore, f***ing whore...

- Yes, I'm mad. You're all idiots.

- Well, excuse me!

- When did you ever fix anything?

- I fixed these cookies.

- You didn't fix them!

- I put them out, didn't I?

- ass-f***, thank you very much.

- Janne!

- What is he talking about?

- He gets weird when he's drunk.

- Hello.

- Hello...

Give me a hand here.

Why do you drink like this?

- F*** you, f*** you.

- I'll pretend I didn't hear that.

Jesus! Goddamn it!

No, no...

- Try to help out, Janne.
