How are you?

I'm fine.

I just came.

I don't know anybody from here,

so it's nice to see you.

How are your friends?

I'm sorry?

You don't remember me?

- Remember you from...?

- From Istanbul.

From Istanbul?

No, I'm sorry.

I think you've mistaken me

for someone else.

- I'm sorry.

- No, that's fine.

Take some nuts for me.

And also a little bit of...

No, sorry, we have to go.

No, she's not angry.

We just have to go.

- Can I have the keys?

- I don't have them.

Here they are.

I haven't washed my hair

in three days.

Good, good.

- Let me know if you need anything.

- If I need any service?

Sorry? Can I still buy

something, very fast?


I'm glad that band

didn't come over to our table.

Yeah, thank God.

Excuse me.

Can I borrow your phone?

Where we are from?

- Can I borrow your phone?

- You need a phone?

I left my phone

and my keys up there, so...

- Have you locked yourself out?

- Yes. My friends are upstairs, though.

- They might be sleeping.

- You know their numbers?

By heart?

You know them by heart?

Yeah, they're my old friends.

- Do you know my number, August?

- Of course I know your number.

Very good.

- I even know it with a melody.

- Let's hear.

- And that's not all.

- I'll try again.

Do you know Jacob's number?


- Is that right?

- Totally.

If they don't answer, -

- you can come up to our place.

We live next door.

You can just hang at our place.

Maybe they'll call back.

If they don't, we can find some place

where you can sleep.

We're not doing anything.

We're just going to bed.

- Is this OK?

- Yeah, it's OK. Absolutely.

Because, I mean, I have...

My bed is...

It's... It's under

here somewhere.

- Do you need some help?

- No, I'm fine. It's...

- It's under there?

- It is.


- If you want, you can have this.

- No, no.

- Are you sure?

- Yes, I'm fine. I'll just...

- I can sleep here.

- You can have this.

No, I'm fine.

This is...

This is good.


- If it's OK for you?

- Sure. No problem.



It's for you.

Hi, I'm at the neighbors'.

I forgot my keys

and my cell phone.

Can you come and let me in?

- Thanks, for this.

- You're welcome.

I'll leave now.

- Say hello to your friends.

- I will.

Where have you been?

At the neighbors'.

Have you been out hunting?


Have you been on

a Turkish man-hunting operation?

They were Norwegian.


Was there more than one?


I had such a nightmare.

- What about?

- I'm not telling you.

Why do you dream about him

every night?

I feel sorry for you.

It's horrible.

- Give us some details.

- I'll tell you nothing!

I don't have much more

information than you do.

- Did you ask what she does?

- Feel anything in your heart?

I pretty much registered

what you did.

She's from Finland.

She's here on some sort of...

Aside from the facts,

what did you feel?

- What did I feel about what?

- The Finn.

Cute Finnish girl.

That's what I thought.


The ice cream truck.

A lullaby.

Are you trying to figure out

whether Nedved played in '95 or '96?

- Or whether Aunt Ada will be...

- Nedved was in '96, Ada in '46.

- Wrong. Aunt Ada was born...

- I need a break.

- In '46.

- No, she was born in '45.

Excuse me,

could I borrow a light?

- Sure. Gonna catch it?

- I'm ready.


Is that the Norwegians?

- Thank you.

- You're welcome.

- Good morning.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Hello.

Have you been here

a long time?

- Three... four days.

- Four days.

And you?

- Hi!

- A couple of days.

Good morning.

- How are you feeling?

- I'm fine.

They let you inside?

- Thank you for taking care of her.

- You're welcome.

- Are you guys from Finland as well?

- Yeah.

- Helsinki?

- Yeah.

- And you are from Oslo?

- We're all from Oslo, Norway.

- You look like it.

- We do? Thank you.

But you have oil.

Yes, we do.

That's why we're here.

We could ask them

if they want to eat with us.

Either go out or eat here.

Why don't we eat here,

on the balcony? Barbecue?

We'll have to buy a grill.

- I think there's one here.

- In one of the storerooms.

- Wouldn't that be nice?

- That would be very nice.

- Audun, why don't you go ahead...

- No, you do it.


- Do you have plans for the evening?

- No, we were just discussing that.

Do you have any plans tonight?

- Are you doing anything special?

- No.

- Do you want to do something special?

- Yes!

We were wondering -

- if you guys wanted

to barbecue with us?

- That would be really nice.

- When's a good time for you?

Around 7-8?


- Mushrooms.

- Mushrooms. Good idea.

Are there any bags?


- And what else? Peppers?

- Peppers are great.

One more.


What is this?

Is it closed?


Thank you.


- Yes...

- Yes.



- Should we take two?

- Two?

- Maybe three?

- Maybe.


Should we go for a

white wine as well?


Do we need something else?

I think this is it.

Is that the feeling

that you want to feel?

If that's the feeling

I want to feel?

- Yes.

- Who said that?

Like Duracell, you know?

Like the battery.

You know the Duracell rabbit

that jumps up and down?


- Do you know that?

- Yes.

That's the feeling I have.

Is it still there?

Because it's turkey,

it's like a turkey...

- Hello?

- Hello.

- Hi. There you are.

- Hi.

Did you go shopping

on the Asian side?

- The first shop was closed.
