- Good night Capel.

- Good night Biale.

- What time is it?

- You ask me that every day.

My watch is always stopping

to look at the scenery.

And it's my way of saying hello to you.

Who put pepper in my coffee?

I know you can count on

another coffee.

I could really give you one!

- Just try it! Pass me the sugar...

- Careful!

- Anouk, how old are you?

- You already asked her.

You really know how to talk

to a person!

It's boiling!

You drink like a kid does.

You know that Terretot girl

had the effrontery to come back!

None of your business!

She makes me feel ashamed.

So think about something else.

Look the other way.

I'd like to be able to.

Hello everybody!

'Evening sweetheart...

a weak coffee for me.

- That's your eighth!

- So what if it is...

I deserve it tonight...

I'm going down tomorrow.

Going back to

what I do best.

- You say that every night.

- You can laugh!

Tomorrow I'll be in my uniform

and hard-hat.

You'll see a real diver.

You go down a mine,'ll see what's at

the bottom of the sea!

You're too old!

Good night.

You sure can go on!

One more!

- Tell me Lucien...

- What?

The house.

Are you carrying on

about a house?

Think if we had our own place.

I'm right about the choir?

- I spoke to Quoniam.

- You won't get it

You better think of home.

The house... the choir...

It's all nonsense.

Think about us.

So how's your love life

Mrs Terretot?

I'm in no mood for jokes today.

- Why?

- Never mind.

That old Mrs Terretot

is hard to get on with!

Her daughter's back.

So how's YOUR love life?!

That Lucien of yours

is a lucky guy.

If he gets tired of you,

let me know.

- Mind your tongue!

- I'm just teasing you.

That's a sensitive subject.


Just listen to

that endless coughing!

You'll end up

making yourself sick!

Quieten down, both of you!

I knocked back the Hochenot boy

who's joined

...the police force...

in Berckville!

Over 3,000 people.

I would have been a seamstress,

like my mother.

No!... I settled for a miner.

On and on it goes...

and the children have to hear it!

- I'm hungry!

- It's coming!

- You OK this morning?

- I'll survive the day...

There's already been

a centenarian in the family.

I've got a nice house, haven't I?

When it falls down,

I'll still be standing!

- I'll be back with the laundry.

- You act like you're not listening!

Hi Mr Maresquier!

Good morning, Mayor.

Hello Flore, my sweet.

My favorite Mayor...

is that how you treat me?

- I don't like nuisances.

- I just wanted to give you...

my ideas on navigation.

You might be able to repair

this little file for me.

Where did I put it?

The mayor has never

held a tool in his life.

His white hands give him away.

I'll have you arrested!

Come on now... Captain,

calm down... this is my house.

Until the day your daughter-in-law

kicks you out!

That's not right...

we want to buy a house.

- What with?

- What with?

It's the mayor's, actually.

Yes... At the bottom of the lane

in the dell.

Another one of your ideas...

Like sending my son

down the mine.

There was no more work

for two here.

I'll give credit terms on half.

You like to make a profit

out of your wife's money.

- All about money!

- Let's talk business!

And the other half?

Capel! Don't get upset!

We're asking you

not to get upset.

I'm not upset,

but I'm not paying a penny!

Capel, without putting up

any of your own funds,

...I'd be happy if you

just went guarantor.

Alright... we'll discuss it further.

Goodbye Flore, my sweet.

Are you eating?

It IS something I do!

I didn't want to set an example.
