- Is Loulou here?

- Get lost!

You look terrible

Where have you been?

Any beer left?

I don't know. I doubt it

Do you have five francs on you?

- You're joking

- I am

See you later, pal

There he is. He'll kiss it better

He isn't a brute, you know

Come on, let's go

Come on, then. Move!

Oh, hell. Stop crying, will you?

All right, kiss me

Come on, let's go somewhere.

Let's go dancing

Do we have to go with the others?

How was dinner?

You enjoy this music? You like

wiggling your arse, right?

Randy as hell, isn't he?

- Fancy him, don't you?

- Oh, stop it. He's drunk

That never stopped you, women.

You go for filth

Oh, lay off, will you?

Are you doing it on purpose?

- Tell me. Is it on purpose?

- Stop it, Andr

May I dance with your wife?

No, thanks. I'm tired

I'll come back later

- You're doing it on purpose!

- Leave me alone

You think I didn't see

what you were doing?

Don't you laugh!

Damn it. You think it's funny?

- Yes, I do

- You want another one?

You hurt me!

I hardly touched you!

Oh, I'm fed up, Andr

- What is it now?

- Nothing

He's getting on my nerves

Come on. You know he's harmless

Serves him right if I slept with that

bloke. To get even for that slap

Oh, that's enough

I can't stand him any more.

He makes me sick!

You make me sick!

You know he'll forget it by tomorrow.

Can't you control yourself?

I'm not going home tonight

Let's go. I've had enough

I don't want to. You go if you like.

I'm staying

Come on, let's dance

Stop it!

Hell, the bed's collapsed

Wait, stay there. I'll try to fix it

Come on, help me

What do you want me to do?

Can't you fix it?

Oh, listen. It can't fall any lower

What a drag

Will you stop that?

Some people sleep at night!

I don't know what to do

Come back to bed. Quickly

Don't howl, you silly cow

- Did I hurt you?

- You crushed my tit

Never mind. I'll crush something else

Don't scream. You want them

to hear us?

That's the first time

I've stayed out all night

Do you want to go home?

No, but I'm scared

Will you tell him?

Hello. Having lunch already?

- Want some?

- No

All right, then. I slept at Annie's

I didn't say anything

I want you out of here!

Pack your things and get out!

- Did you hear me?

- Of course

- Get out of here!

- Come off it

You're taking all your stuff with you!

Don't leave anything behind!

Not a single pair of knickers.

Go on, start packing!

You want me to carry it on my back?

Oh, I'll help you

That's it. You do the rest

I can't stuff all my things

into two suitcases!

Do like your ancestors. Take a sheet

and make a bundle

You put it all in here. It's easy.

Just like your ancestors did

Don't forget your little boots

You pig! Even dogs aren't

treated like that

- Let me go now!

- Not without your clothes!

I don't want my clothes.

You can throw them out, if you like

I'm fed up!

Get out of here!

Get out! Did you hear me?

Damn you!

Leave me alone!

- All right, calm down

- No!

Get out of here!

Come on, let's forget it

Have some rest now, all right?

Do you want to rest?

I didn't mean it

Do you forgive me?

Get some rest now. It's all over

- I came for my tomatoes

- You cooked it yourself?

- No, my Grandma did

- I was tempted to eat it myself

What are you doing here?

'Morning, Madame

What the hell are you doing here?

Where are you going?

What's this?

Stuffed tomatoes.

My Grandma made it

You're nice but you'll have to

eat it without me

You said when your brothers left

we'd spend the night together

Spend the night with you?

Oh no, I'm going out tonight

But I want to go out with you
