- Good evening, madam.

- I'm here to meet someone, Adam Lucas.

I don't believe he has arrived.

Perhaps you'd like to look inside.

I'm afraid I don't know

what he looks like.

Ah, well, if you take a seat

at the bar or at your table,

- I'll show him in when he arrives.

- My table will be fine.

very well.

Happy birthday to Patti

Happy birthday to you

Excuse me.

Could you ask that man who's sitting alone

over there if his name is Adam Lucas?

Thank you.

- I'm sorry, ma'am, no.

- Thank you very much.


That's enough for now.

I'll get it. They're probably here

to pick up my angels.

This is incredible, isn't it?

I had a feeling

I knew you from somewhere.

- I had a feeling.

- You did?

Oh, I was bringing this

amphora in to be repaired.

You don't remember,

but I was in here about a year ago.

I brought in a mosaic,

third century from Herculanium,

portrait of a young boy.

There was another woman, dark-haired.

She worked on the piece.

Charlotte, my partner.

I remember that mosaic.

- She did a terrific job.

- Good.

I'm Jack Saunders,

curator of antiquities,

Founders Museum.

Adrienne Davis.

I don't have a title.

Well, it's nice to meet you finally.

- Same.

- Adrienne, I'm leaving.

- I'll lock up.

- See you tomorrow.

- That's her.

- Let's have a look at that.

We used to have

a house in Searsport, Maine.

I had an aunt and uncle

who had a house...

- not ten minutes from Searsport.

- You're kidding me.

Me and my cousins used to go there,

swim all summer.


You and I were probably

there at the same time.

Ever go to a place

called The Breakers?

We used to try to sneak into The Breakers

to dance and listen to the music.

- I can't believe this.

- What's your favorite song?

Earth Angel.

Earth angel, Earth angel

Say you'll be mine

My darling dear love you all the time

I'm just a fool

A fool in love with you


Good morning.

No, don't get up, please.

Go on doing whatever

it was you were doing.

Here's to Adam Lucas,

with deepest gratitude.

- Who?

- Your blind date the other night.


So, what are you doing tonight?

I don't know.

How about tomorrow night?

I don't know.

How about the rest of your life?

Am I being too presumptuous?

Well, that remains to be seen.

Mommy, can I

blow out the candles now?

- Hang on, honey.

- Let's sing Happy Birthday.

I Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday, dear Mary

Happy birthday to you

- Mommy, can I cut it now?

- Yes!

Thank you, Daddy.

My scariest purchase was $1.2 million

for an Etruscan urn.

It was in perfect condition.

It was so perfect,

they had doubts of its authenticity.

We had five authenticators on that one.

Best piece I ever purchased.

That's enough business.

We have cake here.

- Give me that! I want that.

- No, you don't!

- No more nothing!

- No more nothing!

It's me.

The day you were born,

the happiest day of my life.

Mine, too.

Where's Granny and Papa?

- Granny and Papa? You mean, mine?

- Yours.

Okay, where are they?

Is that them?

- That's not them.

- Is that them?

That's not them, either.

- That's them.

- Okay, here's a picture of me

when I was a boy in Nebraska.

Standing next to me

is Grandpapa Thomas.

Standing next to him is

your grandmother, Lorraine.

Over here is a bicycle I used to ride.

- See that bike?

- Mm-hmm.

Over here where you can't see...

is a hill where we used

to go tobogganing.

Tell me again

about granny's eyes.

Granny's eyes were beautiful,

exactly like...

- Exactly like mine.

- Right.

Okay, time to go to sleep.
