Ready, roll 'em!

If anyone knows by heart

a few gentle words and notes

that murmur

in the trees like the wind...

Tell them to me.

They will suit me.

When I find a composer

who can write me

a love song - I don't want a hit -

I will ask him politely

to hurry up with it.

I will describe in detail

how it should be.

Call me later.

This one doesn't even open.

The song should be as clean

as the red sky...

As transparent as a daze...

As light as a stork,

about to take flight...

And as neat as a back yard.

That song should sound

like a guitar

with a nightingale's nest in it.

Be quiet as a gold mine

where nobody digs anymore,

and as cosy as a bar by day.

What kind of weather can we expect

tomorrow and the day after?

I know a hundred songs

and when I just look,

one is similar to the other.

No one knows I'm singing today...

For you, for me

and for both of us.

When I find a composer

who can write me

a love song,

as quiet as breath,

I will ask him politely

to hurry up with it.

It's late. Get on with it.

Everything's cool. You have

a red one. I've got a green one.

You first.


Bon appetit.

Are you going to the zoo

with your mom today?


-Are you looking forward to it?


-What's up?


-What are you looking at?


Daytime temperature +2 to -2,

in the mountains - minus four.

Mild winds from the southwest,

The bio forecast is two,

medium pressure.

We wish you all a nice day.

We're talking about the accuracy

of average forecasting.


-Average ones though.

But forecasts, not forecasting.

-Oskar, don't be pedantic.

-We need some fresh air.

I'm an ex-teacher too, you know?

So tell the meteorologists here,

about the accuracy rates

of their long terms forecasting.

-Forty percent.


A lousy forty-two percent.

Hang on.

Let's put it the other way around.

Hey, that's a good idea.

Okay, down?


Unhook it.

Hold on.

I'll be right back, okay?

-Hi, it's your order.

-Thank you. Keep it.

Thanks, goodbye.

We expecting someone?

I ordered dinner.

Robert and Marie are coming over.

-Don't you think it should be fixed?


Yeah. Marie's double chin.

What? You always said

she was a pretty woman.

She is. I just wonder why she won't

do something about her double chin.

Or why Robert doesn't tell her.

You don't want to have dinner with

Marie because she has a double chin?

No, I'm just wondering

about Robert.

Why doesn't he tell her?

Maybe he has some kind of a mental

block, some inhibition. Or he just...

Why doesn't he tell her?

Robert, I mean.

Hang on.

It's something about me, right?

What do you mean?

Something obvious

and you've never told me

because you don't wanna hurt

my feelings, right?

My nose.


Put the lizard to sleep.

You think I haven't noticed

you staring?

You think you're perfect?

With your TV smile?

Your ever bigger belly?

You think I haven't noticed

how distant you've been lately?

That we don't have sex?

That you're always

getting text messages?

I mind, you know.

I didn't say anything.

You know why?

I'm not a shit like you.

I love you.


So what did you decide

about the mountains?

What d'you think...?

What? You've cancelled again?

Can you imagine me on a ski lift?

Me and mountains?

Sure, why not?

And they say

lawyers don't have imagination!

Hey, that au-pair of yours,

she's Hungarian, isn't she?


What's she like?


-The au-pair.

Why do you always drag

that animal round with you?


You want me to pee on you?

Wait. Not here.

Not on the double sheets.
