Honey, it's just the foghorn.


Put 1 on my hook.


A crab.

You're scared!

Fishing's fun with women!


I got one!

A real champ!

Take it off the hook!


Let's make love.


What of it?

What if someone comes?

He'll get an eyeful!

Nobody will come.

I really want you!


We'll come back.

Yes, we'll go there again.

We'll come again.

Where you going, Papa?

For some logs.

Can I go with you?

Time for bed. It's 9.

Just this once!

Just once!

I know that old song.

She's 6 years old.

Her playmates go to bed later now.

It's not...

Next thing, she'll spend her

nights at Castel's club!

Put your things away and go to bed.

Sleep well, honey.

Tell me a story.

- Lights out!

- Won't you go to sleep?

A fairy tale!

Nixon or Brezhnev?

What, then?

You know!

You mean, the...

You guessed!


You guessed it!

Riding hood? What color?



Not at all! Why?

- It's improper to cut salad.

- I don't care.

Still love me?


After 8 years?

You're crazy!

And you?

You'd be hurt if I cheated on you?

How should I know?

You mean I should try?

You already have?



It's unimportant.

That's what you say!

Everyone says so!

Yes, all the men.

Forgive the comparison but it's like...

having a cigarette or a drink.

- And you?

- Have you?

You know I haven't.

How can you ask such a thing?

Many strange things do exist.

They'd bowl us over if we only knew.

Look me in the eyes.

I wouldn't mind.

I wouldn't mention it again.

You really haven't?


What's wrong with you?

It merely crossed my mind.

Tell me now. If I found out later...

I'd wish you dead.


You should.


Sleep with another guy.

To some,

sleeping around means cheating.

Let's prove it's not.

Who's coming?

Katkof, Isabel, Michel, Fernand...

Ow! A thorn!

Who else?

Annie, Francois and a pal.


I forget his name.

The thin one, back from Tokyo.

He gets on my nerves.

He's always "with it".

I don't like him.

Neither do I.

That kind of guy's always playing games...

paranoiac... flipping out...

What's for dinner?

Veal Blanquette.

I love it!

With lemon!

Yes, I know!


It's too juicy.

Use a low flame or the meat will be tough.

Before serving, warm the sauce.

- Lf it sticks...

- I know, I know!

Don't chop it so fine!

- I finish what I begin!

- They're here.

Keep your apron on.

Don't be fancy!

Tequila and triple sec.


I'll make some real Margaritas!

How are you?

Everyone's here?

This is Habib.

Just back from Tokyo?

We've met before.

Maybe at Castel's.

Sure, I always forget who's there.

He's got his guitar.

Big deal!

Where's the juicer?

- Wait will you see this!

- Margaritas!


Under the sink.

Annie, a plate, please!

Can I help you?

Wash that... clean!

Can I go with you?

Has she eaten?

Hamburger and a yogurt and...

she ate it all.

Time for bed now!

You'll come, too?

I've got work to do.

Say goodnight.

To Papa, too.

Come say goodnight.

Tell me a story.

I can't tell you stories all the time.

Tomorrow, I promise.

Lucky kid! Off to bed!

This'll shake you up!

Thou Shalt Not Be Naked...

The Wrong Love Story... Wild Sex...

How about that!

Garbo... That's not bad.

Plow girls... Summer Camps...

A Lifetime... and The Longest Day.

That remind you of anything?

Hey, guys!

Wait! A Modern Wife's Sex Life...

Plow girls...

The Broad Jumpers... and...

Miss Innocence Among the Plow girls...

I'd like that!

The Irony of Chance...

and 2 Girls In 1 Pair of Pajamas!

My darling angel.
