Sorry, I am late. It's a last bit of shopping

for the kids.

I bought mine duty free

on the Concord lounge.

- Thank you

- Thank you.

Well, are congratulations in order?

I am afraid not

You better make the most of it Stephen. Its the

last trip, we will have on the company

- What do you mean?

- They are tearing the stock after you left.

We didn't get the contract.

Tired about bothering about

some other jobs that are small.

Sorry old chap! But we are broke.

Its time I retire anyway.

Knocked by the house that clinched it.

There is some money in the Geneva account

How about you?

Well, I am not ready to retire yet.

Listen Jim! I knew we were on the edge

but I thought we could hang on.

You are a bright boy Stephen.

and a damn good architect

- You will find another partnership.

- Oh I am sure.

- Cheers?

- Cheers. - That's the way.

- Will you have some more champagne Sir?

- Why not!

Don't get run in for speeding.

Welcome home Steve.

- Oh for gods sake

Oh I missed you.

- Everything went all right?

What do you reckon?

- Doesn't look like 40 grand to me.

Maybe 20 not more.

Well, lets find out.

Steve, I have got a marvelous place.

Its 59 years Pimplico, and its so cheap

Well comparatively. I dragged her about there.

She is mad about it.

He has finally agreed to roll up his sleeves

and work again.

Right David?

- Oh yes, right

Ideas unlimited. How does that sound?

- It sounds great Laura.

- What is it?

- It's a business.

Interior decorating. We are going to be

somewhat sister concern of you.

People like you and David

will put up the glass and the concrete.

We move in and make it beautiful.

- Oh, I see.

Where do you think they are going

to get the capital to start all this.

Oh, easy. From you.

Stephen, come see it. Somebody else is going to

snap it up fast, if we don't move in fast. Tomorrow?

Can we talk about it later?

- Drink? .

- Yeah! I will have a lager.

- Marty?

- No thanks. I am all right.

How do you like to plough some of it back?

International securities Bank.

- That's like taking on Fort Knox.

Other may have thought about it.

But nobody else had a go.

Sounds like a challenge.

You know about the deposit boxes.

I am told in millions.

I can get us in and I can get us out

provided we got the right team.

- How many more we need?

- Three.

- A straight man.

- Straight man?

- Specialist. Technical and very necessary.

- Don't like to work with anyone straight.

- Well we 4 were once straight Harry.

Where do we get him? Yellow pages.

We have a shortlist from the institute of architects.

and it will be fine.

- Its good bye Fairbrother, Young and Brooker.

- You mean you have been sacked?

No, not sacked. Damn it.

Will you listen to me for Gods sake?

We didn't get the Wiggly contract. They gave it to

Japan and so the partnership is dissolved.

Well darling! I am so sorry.

- Why didn't you tell me?

- I didn't want to spoil the party.

- What are you ... what are we going to do?

- I can found a new partnership eventually I guess.

In the mean time I have to try

and find a job some place.

That wont be difficult. Not for you.

- Yeah. We will see.

- Why don't you join David?

- No.

No. Listen to me... I don't want

any of my friends to know it just now.

I need some time to sort things out.

- But you can jump on it.

I will phone Leo in the morning

I will get it delayed at least.

- Delay what?

- The lease.

- What lease?

The shop. Everything that we talked about.

Poor Stephen. No wonder you look so tired.

I will phone him.

No darling. Don't call I am serious.
