Frantic

Do you know where you are?

No.

It's changed too much.

So, change the tire.

I'll help you change the tire.

- Are we at the hotel?

- A flat tire.

Now do you know where you are?

In Paris.

- Good morning.

- Good morning.

- Reservations for Walker.

- Walker?

Please sign.

May I have your passports?

Would you be kind enough

to hold the doctor's calls?

Certainly, madam.

- May I?

- Please.

"Please confirm luncheon at the Jules

Verne in the Eiffel Tower today at 1:00."

"Regards, Dr. Maurice Alembert. "

"Numero:
45-84-32-53."

This way, please.

The mini-bar.

Light switch for the bedroom.

The bathroom.

Television controls.

Radio. Message light.

Have a pleasant stay.

Nice.

Nice fruits.

I would have preferred flowers.

Nice view.

It's magnificent.

It should look very lovely

from the Eiffel Tower...

...where you and Dr. Alembert

can share it together.

I want to take a hot shower.

But first I'll confirm your luncheon.

What for?

You can't speak French or use the phones.

I'm not going. Don't confirm the luncheon.

You told Alembert you were arriving

a day early, didn't you?

You obviously want to see him.

Give me the note.

I didn't tell him when I was coming.

Maurice Alembert...

...happens to be the chairman

of the convention.

Richard, give me the note.

Don't swallow it. You'll choke.

Now she says...

Let me get you some water

to wash it down.

Alembert doesn't give a rat's ass about me.

Not since he saw you

at the Berkeley seminar.

"Be sure to bring your lovely wife to Paris. "

Was he the one with the long legs

who took his shoes off?

Never mind.

How do you feel?

Do you want some breakfast?

I've already eaten, thanks.

Want some "caf au lait" and croissants?

Hello. Room service?

Over here, please.

Let's call the kids.

You can dial direct.

I know.

Zero.

One, nine.

One.

- Four, one, five.

- Got it.

Walker's residence.

Hey, buddy.

Hi, Dad.

How're you doing?

All right.

It's 11:
00 at night.

Why are you up?

You woke me up.

I know. Just testing.

Sure, Dad.

Before that, somebody else called

from Paris for Mom.

Somebody called for you from Paris.

I don't know anybody in Paris.

Hold on. Mom wants to say hello.

Can you make these keys work?

I can't get my suitcase open.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- How are you?

- I'm all right.

Were you sleeping?

Who called me?

- I don't know. Casey talked to him.

- Him?

Put Casey on.

She's not here.

She left you alone?

Casey's out?

She's on a date.

When did she go out?

I don't know. She left around...

You're not scared, are you?

You can call us anytime, okay?

We'll call you tomorrow.

No wonder you can't get the keys to work.

It's not your suitcase.

Not my suitcase?

It doesn't have your nametag.

There's no name at all.

The keys don't work.

It's not your suitcase, dummy.

You did this on purpose 'cause

you want me to go shopping in Paris.

I'll get on TWA and straighten it out.

Please get me TWA.

Besides...

The lost luggage department.

Besides, for the next 24 hours...

...you won't need anything to wear.

Promises, promises.

Yes, I was on Flight 862 this morning

from San Francisco.

My wife apparently picked up

the wrong bag.

Samsonite?

Yes. You have it?

It's always Samsonite. They look alike.

What's the tag number?

"I love Paris"

"Why, oh, why do I love Paris?"

The Grand Hotel Intercontinental.

How about it?

They'll send someone to pick this one up...

...and we'll fill out a form for yours.

We'll hope whoever's got your stuff

doesn't like it better than their own.

I was talking about breakfast in bed.

Be with you in a minute.
