Careful miss.

You nearly went in the gutter.

Hey Mike look, ain't she a beauty.

Expensive though I bet.

Not that one, this one.

Ah, you couldn't afford either.

I'll get that deposit by Monday,

I've made up my mind.

Yeah and I'm gonna be

queen of the May.

I'll get it...

no matter what it costs,

what it is I'm gonna get it.

Mike, I'm gonna get it.

185, 190, 200, correct?

Thank you very much Mr...

Hadril, yes yes. By

Monday she'll be all mine.

You should see her,

she's a beauty.

Anyone'd think it

was a pretty girl.

More important than a

pretty girl for the moment.

I don't think you

quite understand.

This is a taxi, it's

the beginning of a...

a whole fleet of taxis. I don't

know, maybe 5 years from now...

Repayments on the first

of the month, alright?

Oh sure.

Thank you very much Mr Hadril.

And listen, if you want a free

ride you know where to get me.

United Loan Company

Who?

Oh yes

How long?

Alright.

He's only a kid mister and he's sick.

I'm sorry, no security, no loan.

But I've absolutely no security.

Don't worry about security, your

signature is perfectly good

I assure you, as long

as we can help you.

It's terribly kind of you,

I been so worried.

You look quite happy now.

Thank you.

Paris called. There's a 5 minute delay on

the line but they might come through sooner.

She looked a good prospect.

She'll never be able to pay.

Anything from Vienna?

No, but Zurich have got two girls for us

and there's still Paris.

United Loan Company.

Oh yes, hold on a moment.

Your Paris call.

Hello Aggie, how's tricks?

You have? Good.

Yes.

Yes.

Hold on a second.

Paris have a girl for us.

Got a husband ready?

Cab driver, just been

in here. Dead broke.

What's she like?

Here name's Malou.

I think you'll agree with me.

We're fixing it now.

Malou, watch the till for a moment?

31,740 ok.

Yes.

May I have another coffee please.

Did you get throught

to London alright?

Yes thank you.

You we're very lucky. Sometimes

it's very difficult to hear.

I would never make a call

from here. It's too noisy.

This was business

that couldn't wait.

I hope it was successful.

Very.

Malou.

Yes.

I left for a second and

5,000 francs is missing.

What do you mean?

Where's the money?

I didn't take any money.

And what's this?

1, 2, 3, 4... 5,000 francs.

I didn't take any money.

You little thief.

I'm calling the police.

No, please don't.

He says I took money from him.

Oh nonsense. You didn't touch a penny.

Don't shout at me you... foreigner.

What's the French word for liar?

Menteur.

Vous menteur.

Alright how much, how much,

how much are you short?

Combien?

Well come on, combien?

Don't you understand French?

Cinq milles francs madam.

5000 francs, but don't madam,

I didn't take any.

A donnez-moi...

What the hell's the word for change?

The money yes, and quick, vite vite.

You shouldn't madam, I didn't.

Get your things dear.

You're coming with me.

I don't understand a word you're talking

about and perhaps it's just as well.

Ready dear?

Hey it's Johnny.

So he did get his new car.

He's like a kid with a new toy.

Hey watch out, this man's crazy.

Poor Johnny, it's your new cab.

Disgraceful.

I saw the whole thing.

Did you get the number?

No i'm afraid not.

I could give a description of the

lorry to the police and they might...

Alot of good that'll do.

Well, it's better than nothing.

I don't think we should let these people

get away with this kind of thing.

Come, let me give you

my name and address.

Let's slip in there.

I had her three days.

Three days.

Well here's my name and
