What do you think?

Yeah, it's good. How much was it?


Top of the line.

So when are you leaving?

Tomorrow morning.

I promised the kids

I'd take them hunting in Ireland.


I gotta talk to you about something.

I've been meaning to tell you

for a while now.

I'm gonna quit. I'm gonna get out.

I'm gonna sell my shares

and start from scratch.

Besides, I don't really think

you even need me anymore.

I think you'll be all right.

It's not the best time.

Well, listen,

I thought it over quite a bit,

and there's nothing else I can do.

I'm so far in debt with these people,

it's what I have to do.

Have you found a buyer?


It's a company called Golden Eagle.

Out of Singapore.

I borrowed an awful lot

of money from these people,

and this is the best way

for me to pay back my debt.

You're still gonna be running things.

I already worked out part of the deal-out.

I know Golden Eagle.

They're not that reputable.

Well, they did me a lot of favors,

but it was not like there

was anything ever illegal.

It was nothing like that.


No. Nothing illegal.

Answer it.

It's for you.


Yeah. I'll send somebody else to get you.

Sandra's here.

You're still seeing her?

Well, not really.

- We talked once.

- Once too many.

You preferred the wife, didn't you?

I did.

I didn't.

Sandra's out in the waiting area,

so would you go get her for me?

- Sure.

- Okay.

The Golden Eagle contract just arrived.


Andre has all the information,

and he's gonna start asking questions,

so just give him answers, okay?

There's not gonna be any more

secrets around here.


Thank you.

Mr. Rennberg's waiting for you.

Will you follow me, please?

Thanks for seeing me.

Thanks for not taking my messages.

Well, I'm here.

Yeah, two months late.

I thought we broke up.

I guess we kind of did that

a couple of times.

I'd like to do it once and for all.

Whatever makes you happy.

Your cufflinks?


Is it because we're separated

that I'm allowed into your office now?

How old are they?

11 and 13.

They're good-looking kids.


I did a nice job with them, I think.

But your wife...

It's funny.

Before, it would've been painful

to see these pictures.

I'm divorced.

I don't hardly see those kids anymore.

Your divorce went through?

A month ago.


I see. That's why you

started calling again.

You know very well why

we never met in this office before.

Because of the favors I used to do for you.

When I used to play "escort girl"

for your clients.


I used to come and tell you

everything I heard.

And everything I did...


I'm sure you never asked your wife

to do such things.

Well, you were very good at what you do.

And you got paid...

quite well as I remember.

Yeah, 'cause it turned you on

to pay me for that.

You know, sometimes I made things up.

I'd rather not know.

I would never do it again.

I'm starting to get that impression.

Do you know why I did it?

No, I don't. I'm mystified.

I did it because I loved you.

Then I suppose that means

you don't anymore. Is that it?


You're lying.

Anyway, not enough

to do that shit anymore.

I didn't have a clue.

I would've done anything for you.

And you did.

Because I believed in our relationship.

You were just taking advantage of me.

Took advantage of you?

I could've picked up a $2.00 hooker

off the street

to do the same fucking thing!

Well, you wouldn't have

gotten such good info.

I didn't give a damn about the info.

You think some sweaty, drunken,

half-hard businessman

is gonna tell you anything important
