Just a little butterfly.

You know, Mary,

I half expect

it to flutter its wings

and fly straight out

of the window.

The Stahl Papillon,

in my own hands.


It doesn't look

strong enough

to carry

the weight of the stones.

In a piece like this

the materials are,

in a way, irrelevant.

It's what he was trying

to achieve,

the, the overall effect.

What would she

have said?

Have you bought your

tickets yet?


I've got six weeks to go.

Your mind's made up then?

Yes, Charlie.

Better see to that


# Ooh, look at that

# Look at her walking

# Turning my head

Good afternoon, sir.

Where would you like me to

put this?

Don't worry, I got it.

That's the Leoville-Barton

'87 you ordered, sir.

Would you like me to open

that for you, sir?

Let it breathe?


Mr. Morgan wonders whether

this may be appropriate

for your friend?


Oh, for Mr. Morgan.

Tell him everything

is, um...

... awesome.

Appreciate it.

Thank you, sir.

Have a nice day, sir.

I've got a job for you.

Right, Mr. Morgan.

Mr. O'Sullivan in the Hyde

Park Suite

asked me to give you this,

Mr. Morgan, sir.

Got a guest in room 417.

Bought her son a watch for

his 21st birthday.

Now it's a little big, so

we need one link

taken out of the bracelet.

I need you to take it to

Clara's Antique Jewelers

on Bury Street

and ask for Charlie.

And you

tell him that I sent you.

Yes, Mr. Morgan.

Good afternoon,


Good afternoon, Mrs. Lieberman.

I hope you're looking

after Sam, Mr. Morgan.

You know

he's my favorite.

He's mine

too, Mrs. Lieberman.


Ah Mr. Giles, do you mind

holding for just a moment?

You make sure that they do

it while you wait.

The guest needs

it back in her suite at 5:00.

So you get straight back

here, no delays.

Yes, Mr. Morgan.

Oh, and Smith...

I'm watching you.

Yes, Mr. Morgan.

Get going.

Smith... Straighten that

name badge.

Mr. Giles, thanks

for holding.

Yeah, I'm sure the house

doctor has informed you

that the guest had a fatal heart

attack earlier this afternoon.

How dare he die

in my hotel?

# Look at her walking

# Turning my head

# Taking my breath away


Eight million of us all

with our own dreams.

A city

full of opportunity.

And for those whose dreams

come true,

there's no

better place to be.

Every whim can be indulged,

itch scratched

and desire catered for.

A few streets

where the wealthiest magpies

swoop for the brightest

and shiniest objects.

And, man, do I wish

I was part of that world.

Very nice.

What keeps me going on

days like today

is the thought that

when my dream comes true,

it'll be me ordering

room service

from my swanky hotel suite...

Me getting the girl.

Oh yeah, and me

remembering to tip properly.

I just need that one

piece of luck,

the shot at the title.

To know when opportunity

is knocking

and make sure I answer

the bloody door.

Just when I thought today

couldn't get any worse...

Radio London FM, 4:30,

cold and wet outside...

It's all there.

Cheers, pal.

It's 320 now, innit?

What are

you talking about?

We had a price,

You can't just slap on an

extra 33% just like that.

What do you mean

I can't?

I just did, didn't I?

Yesterday it was 240,

today it's 320.

Do you want them or what?

You know I can't leave

empty handed.


What you got there?

Two, four, six, eight...

We had a deal.

Yeah, well, that's the way

it goes innit?

Here ya

go, enjoy the show.

It's a blinder...

Good luck.


All right?

Yeah, great.

You're a sh*t negotiator.

Mm-hmm, it's lovely

to see you too.

Found us an investor yet?

The business plan is

nearly ready.

Did you call him?


You know who, I gave you

his card last week.

Did you call him?

I left a message.

Oh, okay.

That's why he asked me

today why you hadn't called.

Well I-- I'll call him

tomorrow... I've been busy.

No, I'm gonna call

him tomorrow.

He loves my food

and he's got money.

I can't wait for you

anymore, Sam.

It's like you're

scared to ask, take a chance.

Go and see some people

and ask them

to invest

in our restaurant.

But the business plan, it

needs to be rock solid,

it needs to be bulletproof.

You know how much work

I've done.

It's no good if no one

sees it.

I've got to make this

happen, with or without you.

We've been talking about this

since we were at school.

I know, I know...

It will happen.



"Vici," a name for

the restaurant.



Right, I'd better get

my skates on.

You eating?

Yeah I'll have

the special to go.

Hi, Elliot.

How are you?

Yeah, I'm cool.


I'm starving.

Starving I can do.

The special is very good.

Wild mushroom risotto.

I've got one portion left.

Yes, please

I'll have that.

Oh well I just

ordered that.

Oh, sorry,

I didn't hear you.

You need to speak up.

Ask a bit louder.


Oh, sorry,

do you want that?

Not, it's okay,

you go ahead.

Thanks, mate.

Are you sure?



That's a great watch.

Thanks... yeah, I mean,

I like it, it's...

We sold one just like

that yesterday.

Oh, really?

Can I have two double

espressos to go as well,

'cause Charlie's getting


I need to caffeinate him.

You like this?

Yeah, love it.

Sorry, Mary, er, this

is my friend:

Hi, Sam.

How are you?

I'm okay... you?

They're playing in

town next week.

The band.
