Ye... No, no, no, my dear chap. Sink.
Sink. S-l-N-K. Sink.
No, no, no, not stink.
Yes, well, now that you mention it, it does.
Look here, what I'm trying to tell you is
it won't drain.
Yes, that's it, and I've got 50 people
popping over for cocktails.
Huh, have you ever tried to get hold of
Hang it all! If plumbing's going to
make a go of it in this country,
the spirit of the thing!
Well, there's just the ghost of a chance.
One chap half promised to be over, but that's
more than an hour ago, so there you are.
But look here, I can't just call up 50 guests.
I can't call up such people as
and tell her my sink's out of order.
Just a moment. Congratulate me, old man.
Here's the plumber now.
Come in, come in. Oh, excuse me.
Yes. He just came this moment. Goodbye.
Never been so happy to see anybody
in my life. Right this way.
Rotten of me to spoil your Sunday,
but it's sink or swim, you know.
Wait till you see the mess.
"Relieve the drain, relieve the strain."
Bit of a poet, eh?
Just too awful for words.
- Yes, but it looks interesting. Very.
than a sink out of order?
I beg your pardon?
An everyday, ordinary,
commonplace pantry sink.
Believe me, I know a lot about sinks.
Yes, naturally, I'm sure you do,
but we haven't much time.
You see, I'm giving a party.
- And you want your sink fixed?
- Then what you need is a plumber.
- Right... But I thought that you...
Oh, no, no. Unfortunately, I'm afraid
there has been a misunderstanding.
You see, I came here to see
Profe... Professor Leigh? He's in Scotland.
You see, I sublet the flat.
- Now I am in a fix.
- Well, what about me? I'm in a fix, too.
- But what am I going to do? It's 4:30.
Expecting 50 guests, including such people
and she doesn't go everywhere, you know.
- You're the most selfish man I've ever seen.
You don't even know me
Why don't you ask me
why I want to see Professor Leigh?
Why don't you ask me about my landlady?
Is she humane or does she want the rent?
Do you know or do you care? No.
Have you even said,
"A fig for Betty Cream, my dear sir.
- Well, is there?
Oh, thank heaven.
- I misjudged you. My name is Adam Belinski.
- Hilary Ames.
Ah, I'm tired, my dear Ames.
It's too bad Leigh isn't here.
By the way, do you know him?
- Not very well, no.
- Magnificent fellow.
He would have said,
And of course, I would have said,
"No, no, nothing."
Insisted, I assure you.
Ah, he had the most charming way
Made you feel you were doing him a favour.
Obviously. Well, I'm not precisely in the habit
- but if I can be of any service...
- My dear Ames, this is kind of you.
Not at all. Do have a nap.
