Passengers traveling to Paris

are asked to board at gate 12.

Didier shhh. Where did I put my boarding pass?

- Plus I forgot my sleeping pills.

- Have a drink it's the same.

- Will you be OK Jean-Pierre?

- Yes. Take your magazines.

Mmmmm. Kevin Deer.

Which do you prefer?

- He's not bad, eh?

- Sure, you're going to be late.

I can't wait to meet him.

For his last film he did 6 months

of Tae Bo. It's magnificent.

What moves!

I've been learning.

Did you see the cover of of "Cahiers du Cinma"

What about in "Crash". Wasn't he sublime?

And "I'm No Angel" with Jonathan Swyke?

When he finds his brother at the

end, I was in tears.

He does have the nicest

butt in Hollywood.

You're right. Come on Annabelle,

we should board.

Didier, mommy has to go work now.

But she's coming home very soon.

So be a good dog for 10 days.

- Don't tell him how long.

- Dogs have no notion of time.

1 year is 7 for a dog. Do the math,

10 days is going to make him sick.

Well Didier...Jean Pierre is daddy now.

- You're sure you don't mind?

- Of course not. I don't mind at all.

I almost forgot...

His squeek-squeek

He sleeps with it in his basket.

Ok go now because he's

getting riled up.

It's fine...mommy just went to

do some shopping.

For now it's daddy who is taking

care of you. Good dog.

Nice dog, just what I needed

right now.

What's wrong? Come one.

Stupid dog.

Ok here we go, we're off.

We're leaving.

We're gone.

Now Jean, for the game Wednesday,

it's going to be a doozy.

If the boys lose that game,

they're down to division 2...

Especially now with their

striker limping around.

He's not limping!

You don't know anything.

Oh shut up.

Time for a commercial break.

The yellow is too yellow.

I tried with a less yellow yellow.

Jean-Pierre is here for you.

What's with the dog?

This is Didier. He's Annabelle's dog.

He's nice, eh?

I wanted to ask, could you keep it

for 3 or 4 days?

Because it's really hard for

me to do it right now...

I don't have...euh...

Plus he's really really nice.

I'm sure he would get along

great with your kitty.

- She's a cat.

- You're cat.

And how is your blond tramp?

My blond tramp?

The blond tramp I saw you

with on Monday.

What does she do in life

besides people?

That was Barbara, Fabrice's girlfriend.

Jean-Pierre I'm sick of you only

calling me when you need something.

So you keep the dog and I'm giving

back your keys. Do what you want.

- That's not nice.

- No it's not nice.

But I have work to do so

please leave me alone.


Yes of course.

Why did I take this tunnel?

I know there's always construction.

Why did I take the tunnel?

I'm so stupid.

Go, move it.


Super. I can tell this

is going to be fun.


Come on, you can kick harder.

Wait 2 seconds!!

Fabrice, Mendes, go with the others,

Stupid, stupid why?

No, not stupid...I just think that it's

a little stupid Didier for a dog's name

Calling a dog Didier, that's weird.

I don't see what's weird.

Jean-Pierre I'm telling you it's weird.

I don't see why Didier is

weirder than Mdor.

Or Pompon

I find it funny but weird....

You could also put a feather in his

butt. Is that funny?

Putting a feather in his butt

would just be degrading.

And the other is not degrading.

Is there a law that forbids calling a dog Didier?

So you have something

against dogs named Didier?

No, not that!

I think it's on the limit of weird...

to call a dog by a human name.

I don't know why I care. It's

Annabelle who named him, not me.

Oh no!

Richard? It's Coco.

It is a sprain, Fabrice.

That means 3 weeks
