Elisabeth claims that I snore.

Ridiculous.|I'll show her!

Saturday, January 7. Geir and I just|moved in with a guy called Stig Inge.

And this place is incredibly tidy.

It's like moving in|to some old lady's place.

February 2. Geir and I just found|a perfect new roommate.

- Welcome, John Goodman!|- He looks just like Stig Inge.

- This other bakery is better.|- No one's there!

Here's the subway entrance.

Look out for the baby carriage!

One more time.

Don't do that!

You have to sweep it out, like this.

Ticket inspection!

He called my bluff.

April 3.|My first kebab at the Tyen Center.

- Just try a different one.|- But I always buy this type.

- There's no difference.|- Of course there is!

April 6. We forgot our key again,|but Geir has a solution.

How's it going, Geir?

Watch this.

Stig Inge,|where is the Raga Rockers CD?

Will they make you work this early|every day?

I think it's about time|I gave you my spare keys.

Want them?


I'll call you later.|Bye.

- What do I do now?|- Just give them back to her.

Say, "Sorry,|things are happening too fast."

Everything's perfect,|so why does she have to change it?

Is she looking this way?

Nobody's driving the car, Geir.

- Who was that?|- Some chick I...

And I ask for your advice?

- Give me another sheet.|- Maybe I could just lose those keys.

- So are we moving in together now?|- Just tell her you need some space.

That's what you need.

- You like her, right?|- Sure.

But do I need keys to prove that?

It isn't that high.

It seems high from here.

Go ahead.

I leave you my stereo, Kristoffer.


One, two...


How awesome was that?

- What's going on?|- Uh... I just dropped something.


What happened?


- What kind of place is this?|- A PR agency, I think.

Go inside|and tell her who wears the pants.

Hi, I just...

Excuse me a second.|I'll be right back.

- I'm in the middle of a meeting.|- I need to talk to you.

We called about that clogged toilet|two hours ago.

Nikolai, this is Kristoffer.

- Oh, so that's you.|- Nikolai is my boss.

Come with me.

- Nice place.|- What did you want?

I like you a lot.|You know that.

I just feel we're rushing things|a little bit.

Maybe it's a little early|for spare keys -

- and all that|"moving in together" stuff.

It just seems like a lot of|responsibility, with keys and...

What do you think?


You agree?

Things are great the way they are,|so why mess with that?

I guess I left the keys in the car.|Want me to get them?

- I'll come by after work.|- Great. We could go see a movie.

They're waiting for me.|I have to go.

I'll check what movies are running.


Jesus Christ!

Look at this cheap bag.

Kristoffer leads 9-8.

- Could you get that, Stig Inge?|- I'm doing the dishes.

Please?|We're in the middle of a game.

Just a minute.

- Did you check the movies?|- No.

We can get a paper on the way.

I think we should break up.

- Break up?|- Our relationship is going nowhere.

- Does it have to go anywhere?|- I don't see a future in this.

No future?|But I love you!

I have to go.|Sorry.


Thursday, August 23.

I just discovered you can't commit|suicide by holding your breath.

Roadside Urban Analysis.|Helene speaking.

This is... Jarle Hansen.|Is Elisabeth there?

Uh... One moment.

Hi.|Where should I put my stuff?

- Henriette?|- Hi!

- I'm Stig Inge. Welcome.|- Could you keep it down?

Here's your room.

I'm on the phone!

Kristoffer? This is Nikolai.|Call here again, and you'll be sorry!

- Clean apartment.|- We like it like that.

You'd think three girls lived here.
