I thought I wouldn't make it.

Your briefcase.

You left it on your desk.

- Are Renol's papers here?

- Yes.

Don't forget tonight's dinner party.

The class at the University

is tomorrow at 11.

The lecture's in the afternoon.

Please keep warm, and rest.

If there's anything you need...

I'm okay.


I wanted to tell you that...

you have nothing to worry about.

I know you don't like to

leave your office unattended.

It's not unattended.

Can I help you?

- Do I know you?

- I don't think so.

All old passengers look alike.

Are you going to the convention?

You too?

I'm going to a party!

Where were you?

In the cafeteria.

Were you drinking?

You stink!

Would you hold this?

I'm going to the bathroom.

I'll be right back.

Are you sure there's no one else?

I'm sure.

She couldn't leave without her case.

I've checked each and every car.

And the washrooms?

- Maybe something happened to her.

- Check the cafeteria.

Your mother may be

waiting for you there.

- No, she's not my mother.

- Then why worry so much?

I'm sorry.


Dr. Fausto?

Do I know you?

Dr. Fausto, it's you.

What a pleasure!

You don't remember?

You don't remember me?

Well, you should.

You removed my stomach.


Santos Vella.

At El Provincial, 8 years ago.

Pancreatic cancer.

A mixed tumor, with complications.


Without the oxygen mask...

- Did I attend to you?

- You said I was terminal.

We had a rather intense relationship.

But you operated 5 times first.

The last time, to show some

students an irreversible process.

- It seems I was wrong.

- It seems.

You said 3 months,

and it's been 8 years.

Don't apologize.

These things happen.

- I'm not.

- As I said, these things happen.

My stomach?

- What?

- My stomach.

- Your stomach?

- Yes. Did you keep it?

- What for?

- What became of it?

They threw it away, I guess.

In the garbage?

That's not too cool.

You want us to keep it after 8 years?

Of course not.

I'd like to have seen it.

I'm sure it didn't look too good.

How'd you do it?

- What?

- This.


Staying away from hospitals.

When I see one,

I cross the street.

I forgot my card.

Santos, Santos Vella.

- It's pronounced with one "I".

- Vel-la.

No, Vella, like mozzarella.

- Vella.

- Vella.



Where are you staying?

Don't tell me.

At the National.

- You're here for the convention.

- Of course.

- I'll drive you.

- No, I'll take a cab.

No problem.

I have to go somewhere else first.

I'll drive you.

It's nice to see you, doctor.

- My stomach...

- F***, no!

I'd rather go alone.



When I get to a new city,

I like to discover it alone too.

We're grown-ups.

Anything you need,

you've got my card.

You got a problem,

you call me. Okay?


You swear?

No, I believe you.

It's a pleasure to see you,


And thanks for everything.

He's a great guy, lady.

No sweat!


- To the National Hotel, please.

- Right away.

Doesn't that sound strange?


The car.

Not at all.

It's as strong as a bull.

Over 20 years without

a breakdown.

Son of a b*tch!

Damn son of a b*tch!

Got a problem?

A bull?

It's more like a cow!

What's it about?

The convention.

- Terminal medicine.

- Terminal medicine?

That's going to be fun.

I'm gonna f*** your father,

and I'm late!

Well, what then?

You have to go somewhere first?

- I'll go later.

- You sure?


It was a lie, right?

You say that to get rid of me.

Admit it.

Admit it.

- All right, I admit it.

- Great.


I catch on to everything.

I've gotten smart.
