Oh, no.

Much too good fish for you.

You're not going to believe this,

but I'm even hungrier than you are.


I'll give you a piece. Come!

I'll give you a bit of that.

Just a little bit.


The Rainbow Thief

A little more, my beauties.

Your favorite drink.

Drink up, my darlings. Drink up.


Thank you.

Kala. Kala. Katalaveno.

Milao liga Hellenika.

Tetragrammaton. Elevsis. Sotir.

Evil winds have finally brought

them here on time.

They calculate their every move.

They hide their greed behind

their phony smiles.

Little do they know, Holly.

Little do they know.

I hope you all like bones. Caviar

always goes to the dogs.

Spoiled, aren't they?

-You know, Rudolf, this is not funny.

Bones are for cemeteries.

God forbid.

May you stay with us for

a long time. -Amen.

Vien dopo tanta irrision

la Morte.

E poi? E poi?

La Morte il Nulla.

... vecchia fola il Ciel.

My God, what I want is some real

life flesh! Rolf!

Ring up Madame Rainbow and tell

her to send over some of her girls!

But we wanted to have a quiet

evening with you. Alone.

But Rudolf, you promised you'd

speak with us this evening.

Winter and Snow are waiting. I must

give them a decision tomorrow.

Winter and snow can wait until spring!

Get out! All of you! Out!

Madame Rainbow's girls wouldn't

like to be seen in your company.


Girls, come on! Let's go!

Now, just get this blindfold off.

Let it fall. Now lean back.

Plaisir d'amour ne dure qu' un moment.

Chagrin d'amour dure tout la vie.

Plaisir d'amour...

As you all know, Rudolf van Tanner

now lies in a coma.

Any reading of the will is not

possible until after his death.

But it is our considered belief...

...that the will favors his nephew, Meleagre.

That would be intolerable!

-Meleagre is a fumbling idiot!

-He doesn't even care about money!

After the reading, the will can be contested on the grounds of undue influence.

But that would be very difficult.

You would have to show such pressures

were brought to bear...

...that the deceased disposed of his

property contrary to his intentions.

Not much chance of that, I'm afraid.

Fortunately, we have some

other suggestions.

Ms. Fenwick...

Could you please bring in the

Meleagre von Tanner file?

Thank you, Ms. Fenwick.

We have here the complete file on

Rudolf von Tanner's nephew.

We've asked him to join us here.

But his appointments not for another

half hour. -Right...

...let's be quick about this.

It seems that Mr. von Tanner's nephew

is a rather odd case.

No bank account. No driver's license.

No medical insurance card. Nothing.

No record of ever even having

seen a dentist or a doctor.

Meleagre was very strange.

Even as a child.

He was brought up by Rudolf.

If the will does favor Meleagre,

our best hope lies... proving him irresponsible

in his affairs.

Afterwards, we can move into a

manageable position.

Which would just the same as

being named as heirs.

For a financial consideration, one

can buy any kind of consultation.

Including psychiatric. And be certain

it'll be helping our case.

I don't think we need spell

everything out, Winter!

- Ms. Fenwick.

- Ms. Fenwick!

Would you very kindly bring in

the psychiatric report?

With psychiatric evidence, a judge

might wish to challenge...

...or even adjourn his finding

...until he was fully satisfied that

such evidence was admissa...


You dropped this.

Come on. Come down here.

Some years later...

Go and put it down. That's a beauty.

Here. Take this. Keep the change.

-That's nice! -Last year's model. They

don't make 'em like that anymore.
