I have entered the wrong bathroom

there was no sign, I think.

But now the door is locked.

- Locked? - Yes.

Let me try ...

Yes, it's locked.

My God!


Hey, we are locked in the bathroom!

- That's terrible. - I'm really sorry.

They killed an army.

Are you listening to me? We are in the bathroom!

It's terrible.

I do not feel well, maybe the fish, I have a fever.

Not only fever.

I ...


Listen, I have to ...

It's an emergency, I have to go back there ...

- No, please! - Sorry ...

Oh my God.

You can connect it.

Open up! It is locked, open!



It's embarrassing!

Still going to arrest you.

I was fine until a few minutes ago.

Now you said you were sick.

True, I do not know what I'm saying.

- Oh my god! - Sorry.

No, please do not open!

Okay, sorry.

- Is there a window? - I do not know.

Take a look, please.

Can not.



- What? - Locked.

- Locked. - It's locked?


- Hey, open up! - Oh my God.

I do not know how to say "open" in Chinese.

- Phone! - Yes that's right.

You have a cell phone? I left my coat on.

What is the name of the restaurant?

- Oh, you do not know? - No I do not know.

You were eating here.

Yes, and what did you do here?

Sorry, I was going through and ...

- The Golden Source! - The Golden Fountain.

No, wait, the Golden Stream.

- The Golden Stream? - Yes, it's the name.

No, the Golden Garden.

- The Golden Garden? - Yes I'm sure.

- The Pomegranate Garden? - That.

The Pomegranate Garden, the address is here.

The Golden Garden, the pomegranate garden. It is almost ...


See, we're locked in your bathroom in the basement.

No, I do not want to place an order.

We are stuck in the bathroom of his restaurant.

I do not know ...

Arriving, I do not ...

I do not know if understood, they may be coming ...

Sorry about before.

I think it's already better.

- Yes, that's better. - It was just too much.

- And now? - I do not know.

- Someone will use the bathroom. - Are you alone?

No, I mean ...

If your friends do not see you coming ...

Are co-workers, had been drinking before arriving.

- What are you doing? - Work with embassies.


- So you're not here? - No, I'm Italian.

Oh, Italian?

speaks Italian?

That's all I know.

Hopefully it does not end in a dispersed group.


Dispersed range when temporary phases are exchanged.

A silly joke. If we move ...

in different dimensions space-time.

- Is scientist? - No, engineer.


Hm, do not know.

- Best call again. - It is better!

Wonder no more of me?

Hi, I spoke to you before, we're stuck in your bathroom.

He hung up.

He hung up.

I hope you have no plans for the rest of your life.

We will spend the rest of my life here.

I hope not. I want your friends to come find us.

And you? Does anyone know you're here?


Now we open the door carefully.

Now kicked the door.

My god.

All right.

Better stand back. Sorry, I did not mean ...

They came to save us.

Thank God.

How am I?


- The door is open. - I see, thank you.

- I am Jude. - Hi.

- This is ... - Mine.


I'm awake, what is it?

No, I do not believe!

Yes, I got it.

Yes, I'll call you later, then. Bye.

They transferred me.

You quits his job and finds one here.

What are you saying? I live from my work.

You keep saying you do not care, you can do whatever you want,

it's all the same.

Now suddenly it's the most important thing in your life!

When you have to go?

In a 2 months.

More or less.

Try it!

Spend out!

Spend out!

No no!

It's blue.

What do we do with a child?
