Angels watching over me

with smiles upon their face

- Evening.

- Hello. Thank you.

Cos I have made it through this far

In an unforgiving place

It feels sometimes

this hill's too steep

For a girl like me to climb

But I must knock

Those thoughts right down

I do it in my own time

I don't care

I'm halfway there

(Nowhere)

On a road that leads me straight

To who knows where

I tell you what

(I tell you what)

What I have found

(What I have found)

That I'm no fool

(That I'm no fool)

I'm just upside down

(Just upside down)

Ain't got no cares

(Ain't got no cares)

I ain't got no rules

(Ain't got no rules)

I think I like

(I think I like)

Living upside down

(Living upside down)

Watching people scurry by

Rushing to and fro

Oh, this world is such a crazy place

It's all about the go, go, go

Sometimes life can taste so sweet

When you slow it down

You start to see the world

a little differently

When you turn it upside down

I don't care

- I'm halfway there

- (Nowhere)

And I'm just soaking up

the magic in the air

- I tell you what

- (I tell you what...)

Come on.

- That I'm no fool

- (That I'm no fool)

- I'm just upside down

- (Just upside down)

- Ain't got no cares

- (Ain't got no cares)

I ain't got no rules

(Ain't got no rules)

I think I like

(I think I like)

Living upside down

(Living upside down)

Hi.

What?

Hello, Ryan. I'm Nancy.

What's this? Why...

Has it... What's your...

Hey...

It's too much, I think.

That's funny, look at that.

It's Ryan, right? Isn't it? It's Ryan...

I mean, not as in Ryan Wright.

Like, your name's not Ryan Wright.

Though you could be.

You could be Mr. Ryan Wright.

You could be Mr. Right.

Either way you're the right Ryan for me.

Oh, my God.

You can do this.

You just put yourself out there.

See what happens.

Just don't drink too much.

Good. And you're going.

You're going. You're gone.

- I think I like

- (I think I like)

- Living upside down

- (Living upside down)

F*ck it.

There is a very, very nice beach.

Terns nest there. It's beautiful.

Terns?

If I help you, Clarice,

it will be turns with us, too.

Quid pro quo.

I tell you things, you tell me things.

Not about this case, though;

about yourself. Quid pro quo.

Yes or no?

Yes or no, Clarice?

Poor little Catherine is waiting...

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Room service.

- Yes. Right this way.

Lovely. Yes. Great.

- There, lovely.

- Hmm...

- OK?

- So, tell me, Andrew...

- Can I call you Andy?

- Of course, yeah.

How is the party going on downstairs?

- Going pretty well, I think.

- Is it?

Yeah. Erm, you know

there's food down there?

Yeah, I know. I'm just not really

in the party mood tonight.

Do you have any ketchup, Andy, please?

Hello?

Who's Andy?

A very nice young man

who's just brought me dinner.

You're not at the party?

I'm not at the party

but I'm at a party.

Hannibal and Clarice are here. Not to

mention Andy. But he's just leaving.

No, alright. Put him on, please.

Andy. My sister

would like to speak to you.

- Sorry.

- Thank you.

Hello?

Hi, Andy. I'm Elaine. Listen.

There'll be a dress hanging up

somewhere. Can you give it to her?

Ah, yeah. OK.

No, no, no. No, no, no, no, no...

No. No. Andy.

- And tell her to put some make-up on.

- She wants you to put some make-up on.

OK. That's enough. Do you have

a napkin or something, please?

Look, Elaine, I've been ambushed.

Some setup with a guy

- that Katie worked with.

- Well, excellent. This is good.

Come on! It's just all so organised

and awkward and I can't bear it.

But how the hell else

are you gonna meet someone?
