Turks & Caicos

When one of them falls in the sea, then it's their financial PR who seems to know more than she's letting on. But will she help Johnny come to an understanding of what these men do and why they're here?

OK. Here we are.

What a great evening. Thank you.

If you want, I could come in,

pour you a drink.

Tell you the problem.

I'm not thirsty.

But I had a great time. Thank you.

Good night.

PHONE BEEPS:

DIALLING TONE:

'Yeah?' No luck.

'Why? What happened?'

I don't know why.

I have to try something else.

What's this?

It's lobster. I've never had it.

OK.

I don't think my mom

wants me to eat it.

Well, then leave it.

Yeah...

Good, huh?

Brave man!

CHATTER AND LAUGHTER

WOMAN:
Don't touch me!

No, I don't want to hear it.

Stay away from me, leave me alone!

DISTANT CONVERSATION

Would you like another beer?

No, thanks.

Incredible.

We have to go see your mum.

How is he?

He's fine. Did you get a job?

Only two kinds of job on the island,

hotel or bank.

Give rich people their lunch,

or give rich people their money.

Which?

Lunch.

How was your lobster?

Rubbery.

It was kind of you.

Forget it. I'd rather be with

Aldous than be on my own.

I enjoy his company.

You saved my bacon.

If I can return the favour.

Don't worry.

I'll think of something.

Bye, Aldous. Nice day.

Let's do it again.

Don't you have a car?

I left it in Cambridge.

Good night.

Hey! Hey! We know each other?

Who are you?

If you know me, you don't need

to ask. I know you, don't I?

No, I don't think so.

You're bluffing, aren't you?

I live nearby. Is that it?

I'd bet a lot of money

you and I have met.

I'm sorry. I wish I could help.

MOBILE PHONE RINGS

Yeah?

'I found your number.'

So that means you must know my name.

'Come and have a drink this evening.

'There are some people

I'd like you to meet.'

Are you still there?

'I'm still here.

'If you don't, you'll spend the

evening worrying, "What did I miss?"'

I don't worry. I never worry.

I'm at the Shelter,

you must know it.

PHONE RINGS:

PHONE CONTINUES TO RING

'You have reached a machine.

'Please leave your message

and we'll get back to you.'

ANSWER MACHINE BEEPS

'You said to get in touch

if ever I was in trouble.'

Well, that's it. I'm in trouble.

Bell me.

PHONE BEEPS:

Morning.

TV:
'..closing price of $233...'

You're looking cheerful.

I just had a good workout.

You should try it.

I don't think the Prime Minister

wants to play squash with me.

He would if he met you. No.

My game's not good enough.

Do you ever win?

Almost never.

He'll play with anyone as long as

they give him a good game

and he can beat them.

That's Alec. What are you up to?

Nothing special.

Fishing for clients.

You?

Oh. Planning the future.

Anything urgent? Nothing. OK.

Tom, great you could make it.

Why wouldn't I?

Only problem with paradise,

nothing to do!

You must find it boring

after such an eventful life.

How do you know about my life?

Please,

don't insult my intelligence.

Keep cool, keep calm,

don't say too much, OK?

And now, introductions.

No. You go first.

Gary, Frank, Dido,

this is Tom Eliot.

He's English. British.

Well, we can spend the next hour

debating the difference.

In my book you're English.

Englishman!

LAUGHTER:

So now perhaps you'll tell me,

what's your name?

Who is this guy? Are you serious?

He comes for a drink,

he doesn't know who you are?

I'm Curtis Pelissier.

Of course you are.

I'm the host. Gary, remember,

I can ask who I want.

I fall in love too easily

I fall in love too fast...

At the end of the day, go private,

because you want to know something?

It works out cheaper.

Across the Atlantic, say.

By the time you buy tickets for your

kids and the nanny and the wife...

Oh, Christ, just pay the 50
