- Hi, sailor. Want a ride?

- Freddie, you're a godsend.

I've been telling you

that for years.

- Your sunroof work?

- Benjamin, it's raining!

You must have noticed.

You're all pruney.

That's not the half of it.

I can't get my umbrella closed.

- My God! How awful.

- I'm learning to live with it.

Yeah, I bet it's not easy.

People can be so cruel.

[Benjamin] How would you know?

Your umbrella folds up.

Umbrellas aren't the only

prejudices people have, you know?

- Uh, Freddie.

- Sorry.

I was just reaching

for the gearshift.

[Tires Screeching]

Are you sure?

It wouldn't take a minute to whip around

the block and get ya right to the door.

Freddie, somewhere out there

the angel of death's just been cheated...

and I have a feeling

he's really pissed, and I'm not

gonna give him a second chance.

Wait a minute!

You're not driving

with an amateur, Benjamin.

I'm a professional racer,

for God's sake.

Hey, I got a good idea. Why don't you

and I go into business together...

selling off shares

of your life insurance


Benjamin, your taste

is in your navel.

- How about a grand's won'th, just for me?

- Kiss off!

- [Woman Gasps]

- [Grunts]


Anybody hurt?

I guess not.

I'm sorry.

- [Tires Screeching]

- No, it was my fault.

- I was running far too fast.

- No, I shouldn't have stepped

back without looking that way.

Oh, is this your...

Uh, it's okay.

I won't need it

when it stops raining.

- Could you give me a...

- Oh.



Thanks for saving this.

It's a crystal wine decanter.

It's the least I could do after

dumping you in that puddle.

- You're an American.

- You're not.

Well, thanks for everything.

Say, uh...

If you're not doing

anything tonight...

Oh, uh, I'll be in Paris.

How 'bout

when you get back?

Why not?

My name's Jackie Howard.

L... I work for Time Europe.

Call me on Friday.

I'll call ya Friday.

Oh, Mr. Browning.

Just look at you!

Oh, Mr. Browning.

Just look at you!

You're wet from head to toe.

- You're bound to catch pneumonia.

- [Sneezes]

I already have pneumonia, Margaret.

What about the phone call?

Well, if it hadrt sounded

terribly important, you know

I wouldn't have called you.

- I know.

- He insisted that he see you

today, but he wouldn't say why.

I tried desperately to find out,

but he wouldn't even tell me his name...

only that the meeting

was important and terribly urgent.

Mm-hmm. Okay,

why don't you go on to lunch.

Oh, here.

It's raining.

Do you want to have it

re-covered again?

No, I think it's all over.

Take it out and shoot it.

Orthodox funeral?

[Chuckles] Not bad, Margaret.

Orthodox funeral.

Pretty good.

Benjamin Browning?

My name is Quimby-Charles.

I spoke with your secretary.

Have a...

Have a seat.

Have a rather bad cold

I'm nursing.

I'm not doing

a very good job at it.

What can I do for you?

I want to buy protection

for someone.

I see.


The primary complication,

as I see it, Mr. Charles, is that I'm

not in the protection business.

I'm an investigator.

Perhaps I can recommend

a good security, uh, service for you.

I want you, Mr. Browning...

because I know you'll do it right,
