Paris Can Wait

Synopsis: Anne is at a crossroads in her life.

Yeah?

No, no.

No, we're leaving Cannes now.

Hey, Budapest

could be huge for us.

They say we'll cut

production costs in half!

No, a vacation can wait.

Yeah, Annie knows.

She understands.

Oh, right, I met with Mr.

Yamamoto this morning.

He finally said yes to our deal.

Yeah. I almost threw

my back out bowing.

Okay, later.

Mmm.

You have no idea

how good this tastes

after seaweed and fish.

Why can't the Japanese distributors

just serve croissants?

I mean, we're in France,

for Christ sakes.

Can I offer you some

delicious cold coffee?

Let me see.

Oh...

I gotta keep packing.

Ooh.

You okay?

Oh, I'll be fine,

it's just my ears, you know.

Right.

Oh, come on, One hundred camels?

Where the hell are we gonna get

100 camels, for Christ sakes?

What does the script say?

Goats. I thought so. And those

Moroccan goats work cheap.

You tell the director,

no more creativity.

He's gonna use

the goddamn goats...

And he's lucky

he still has a job. Okay?

Have I mentioned that overseas

production is a bitch?

Mmm-hmm.

Seriously, Twelve Euros

for a bottle of water.

And look, they charged you for a

hamburger and a cheese sandwich.

Well, I wanted a cheeseburger,

but I couldn't order one...

So, I got both

and I made my own.

Honey, what are you

working so hard for

if your wife can't have a

cheeseburger when she wants one?

Baby, I'd buy you

a billion cheeseburgers,

but you know how much I

hate wasteful extravagance.

Ah, yes. Because your cufflinks

were such a bargain.

Have you seen that book I, uh...

Thank you.

Now let me check

those little ears.

So sweet.

Yeah. Okay.

I'll be right down.

Honey, would you

call the bellman?

Have him come up

and get my bags.

We're sorry, all lines are busy.

Ugh...

Excuse me.

Oh, sorry.

Madame, I'm so sorry.

Would you please

hold this under Lockwood?

Thank you.

You're welcome.

It was my real dream to act.

And so I went to Paris

seven years ago.

And it was

a wonderful experience.

It's a pleasure to meet you.

Oh.

I enjoyed

talking to you. Good luck.

Pleasure to meet you, too.

Hi, honey.

Bonjour, Anne.

Hello, Jacques.

You're all set. I've checked you

out and the car is waiting.

You look lovely.

She does, doesn't she?

Come on.

Mr. Lockwood,

can I have a photo?

Thank you.

Your driver is here.

I read the script.

Yes?

And I'm telling you,

it could be a little classic,

and it's commercial, too.

Classic and commercial?

Come on. Let's go produce it!

Only for a minute.

What's the matter?

What the hell?

Oh, Michael, you know I am

not a whiner, but my ears...

Oh, baby, I'm sorry.

You'll be able to rest

when we get to Budapest.

And wait till you see

where we're staying.

It's Mario.

Uh, what's my inseam?

34 inches.

86 centimeters.

Ah.

The food on the plane will not be food.

So I got you something good.

Try this sausage.

The old man in that

shop makes it himself.

Mmm.

And look at this Dijon mustard.

It's Edmond Fallot.

The best in France!

Anne, here are some

drops for your ears.

Thank you, Jacques.

Our director in Morocco

has gone completely crazy.

He's into double

overtime every day.

He seduced his leading lady but

now they're fighting on the set.

It's a nightmare.

Yes, but he's had

three straight hits.

Relax, we can trust him.

What's he doing now?

I don't know.

Mmm.

Smell that perfume!

And it's full of vitamins!

Mmm.

Thank you.

You're welcome.

Ah...

I can't believe

Laszlo sent this.

I told you he wants to

be in business with us.

Be careful, because

he's not a generous man.

Madame.

Yes?
