In less than 24 hours,

I'll be dead.

I don't know it yet.

That's why I'm talking

like this.

I'm the only one

standing behind a fence,

watching the parade race by.

Then it's gone.

I don't believe in love.


Baby, can you

zip me up?

I... I talked to

the travel agent this morning.

Bora Bora, one week.

You and me.

I don't need that.

No. Come on.

I don't want that.

You're mine.

You're mine.

I know you're trying hard

to hold it all together.


It takes time.

This is... It's a process.

Doesn't happen overnight.

Just don't do anything


I gotta go.

The company can't lend you

anything else right now.

We need to keep

our current staff afloat.

I don't wanna lose anyone.

I'll manage, Laz.

I always do.

Hell, you can tell Lucy,

in reality

it's her father

that's pressing this.

I'm sure she can

help you sort it out.

Let's talk tomorrow.

You know, I've never worked

in all my life.

In all my life,

I've never worked.

I've been thinking about that.

What did you say?

I didn't say anything.

You did too.

You said I was very fond

of expensive things...

Furs and jewels and things.

Did I say that?

I guess you and I have been,

more or less, used to...

a life of pink champagne.

Could you?


You all right?


I'm fine.

My father says

he's been trying


Get a hold of you.

Says you haven't

returned his calls.

You know, I hate talking

business with you two.

I'll call him.

Thank you.

Talked to Nathan today.

He's excited about tomorrow.

Dance with me.

-We have to go.

-No, no.

We have to go.

I'm gonna take my own car.

I'm gonna have drinks

with Valerie after.

F***ing dick!


Is, this seat taken?

Well, it's fate.

I don't believe in that,

but I'll take the seat.


Scotch, please.


You can't smoke in here.


Come on.

What's your name?

I'm called Kat.



You don't look

like a Ben.

It's a middle name.

I will not release this

into your custody...

until you tell me.

It's just gonna go out.

Then I'll just wait

until you light another one.


Now, that...

That sounds

like a middle name.

It doesn't sound

like any kind of name.

Well, I smell a story.

Letholdus was the

first knight

over the wall

of Jerusalem

in the first crusade.

So it's noble.

No one calls me that.

Why not?

I don't know.

Why are you so interested?

You know, it's strange.

We're out here listening

to the world go by,

and we know

there's people out there,

even though we can't see them.

I always wonder

what their story is.

I'm still curious

why no one calls you that.

Fine. I'll find out

sooner or later.


You've got an eyelash.

Make a wish.


Guys, you can't smoke

out here either.

I'm not...

We're not smoking.


I used to dance to this

when I was little.

It always used to

make me feel so free.

I don't feel that way anymore.

So, what are you then?

What would you find

more enticing...

The answer

or the mystery?

To mystery.


Another one?

Yeah, please.

I'm gonna start

charging you for those.

I don't pay for things.

Another piece

of the puzzle.

I wouldn't try

to solve me.

Come on. Everybody

wants someone

to solve them,

don't they?

Not me.

Why not?

'Cause everything important

gets taken away.

Good evening, sir.

Ma'am? Could I

get something started

for the two of you?

Gin with tonic

and your driest Pinot Noir.

Right away, sir.


You know him?

You remember Bailey Steinfeld.

It's her cousin, Ben.

From Kentucky.

She wanted me

to show him around the city,
