was so right.

Isn't this romantic?


This bike weigh's

as much as a dead cow.

Who designed

these bikes, Hitler?

My God!

They use these

in the Tour de France?

Well, everything is old here,

it's part of the charm.

Mine's broken I think.


And I think it's going

to rain.

Why do you have to be

so pessimistic?

I'm not pessimistic.

I'm realistic.

Exact same thing for you.

Where are we?

What arrondissement is this?

Why don't you ride next to me

instead of behind me because

I may as well be

riding alone.

Suit yourself.

I'm tired anyway.

Suit yourself.





Is my husband here?

No, madam.

We were worrying

about you.

No, no harm done.

What about Jacques?


Ready and waiting!

Brace yourself, pal.

Look at that. Madam,

I'm doubling my fee.


The security man

out there, didn't let me in.

Of course not. We have the

Lord Mayor of London coming.

Really? Sexy!

Can I say hello?

- Well, he's coming with his husband.

- Too bad.

Today's mail, madam.

And this came by messenger.


I want some

chocolate milk.

And I'll have a double vodka

on the rocks.


How are you,

silly monkeys?

(KISSES) Sean.

How are you, Maria?

Mr. Stevens,

when did you get here?

Just this afternoon.

What's happening here? Is it

someone's birthday or something?

Nothing like that.

Just a small dinner

for twelve.


Thank you.

Come on Rose, you need

to eat something.


Please Mr. Steven,

tell her.

What are you doing,


starving yourself

like Mommy?

Skinny Mommy, yes!

Well, don't.

No one likes

a human toothpick.

I'm going to find our dad.

Listen to your big brother and

finish those potatoes, please.

Okay. Try that.

Aren't you

going to miss it?

Of course,

I'm going to miss it.

This was your grandfather's

greatest acquisition.

He'd cut

my balls off.

Why don't you sell

something else?

You still don't get. I'm hanging

by my fingernails here.

I need the money.

Anne's costing you

that much?

Sell her jewels.

You're not funny.

Do you want me to

lend you something?

Could you?


just for a few days,

until the sale goes through?

I'll call Mom.

Don't do that.

Don't give her

the satisfaction.

How is she, anyway?

Getting older and

heavier by the day.

Richer, too.

Middle East foggy London.

She voted Brexit.

Makes sense.

When you were born she was

nuts about Margaret Thatcher.

She said I had to

vote for Reagan.

Did you?


We were in Athens.

Our last horrible year.


How's the writing going?

Yeah, my publisher's

coming to Paris.

I've got nothing

to show him.

He knows it.

So, why is he coming?

When he writes off

the Eurostar trip,

I'm one of his best assets.




Go on, sir, take one.

In my country,

we call it mektoub.

Your future.

Tonight you will meet

someone special.

It's not very original.

No? And what if

that someone special

is a mysterious,

beautiful lady.

Zip me up.

I'd rather undress you.


you had your chance.

Ten, eleven, twelve.




Who did this?

- I did.


- Hello, Anne.

- Hmm.

Welcome to Paris,


please make yourself

at home.

Yes and invite yourself

to dinner.

No, Bob invited me.

He didn't say a word.


Well, I am not having thirteen at my table.

It is bad luck.

And what's worse,

it's me.

Sorry about that, Anne, but my
