Pretty windy out

That better not be the one

where you blow people up

It's not, Mom


Dad, look what I can do

I've been practicing

That's spectacular, kiddo


You're inside out

Oh... I knew that

Doesn't work for you?

Can't believe you taught him that

I didn't... He did it on his own

Charlie, did you brush your teeth?

- Yes

- Charlie...

I brushed them

Let me see

Look at this, Con...

Let's go. I'm serious

You're driving me bonkers, Mom...

Let's go

Con, remember when we

were gonna buy Omnidel

you said no?

You remember what

the price was?

Uh, 1.50 $

Close. 61 $

I'll do it, Mom

No, I'm gonna do it

You know what it's

going for now, Con?

- Say, "e"

- Eeeee

Guess, Con

Edward, I don't know, all right?

All right, now rinse

Really rinse. And pee

I should've bought it. Sh*t

So buy some

Too late, Con. Too late

Lift the seat, honey

Don't forget to put it down!

When you finish...

Do you really need all that stuff?

Mom... no one wears these dorky hats

Well, you do, and you're not a dork

How do I look?

Very handsome

Love you... Ok. Come on, let's go!

Whoa. Jesus!

Come on


Maybe you shouldn't go in today

I promised I'd do that

stuff for the auction...

And someone's got

a birthday coming up

Latrell Sprewell jersey, Mom

Don't forget

He's on the Yankees, right?


You're driving me bonkers

You're driving him bonkers


...it's a holiday there

Well, I'll just keep talking

No, no, that's ok.

But in order to pick up...




Taxi. Taxi!

Oh... Sh*t!

I'm so sorry!

- Oh, putanne! Mes bouquins!

- I'm so sorry

Putanne! Mes bouquins!

I'm sorry

I'll get your things

Aw, sh*t!

Taxi! Taxi!

My books! Putanne!...

I need a taxi!

Could you help me get a taxi?


I'll watch your books

- Thanks

- Thank you

Hey. Hey!


Bad day for taxis

It's this horrible wind

Yeah. You shot down

there like a bullet!

If you flapped your arms,

you'd be home by now

I'll remember that next time

That's not good

I know

Listen, that's me up there...

the flower pot

I get you a band-aid, ok?

Hold on to something.

Don't blow away

Or... you can come on

up and clean it off, no?

Come on!

I'm not an ax murderer. I promise

Oh, sh*t

F***ing elevator

Ne marche pas jamais cet ascenseur!

Ascenseur de merde!

Allez! One more!

Pardon the mess

You a writer?

I'm a book dealer


Uh... bathroom's right

down there, on the left

Go ahead

There's a medicine cabinet

You can sneak a peak

at my prescriptions


I made you some tea

Thank you

Do you box?

I used to... when I was young


This is an amazing place


Yeah, but it's not mine


The owner is a friend, a sculptor

and he's living in Paris,

so... that's cool

We can stay here, me and my books


Um, I... can I use your phone?

I have to call home

Oh, sure, sure. There's

a phone just behind you

Thank you

Gloria? Hi, it's me

Good, good

How's Charlie?

Hi, honey. How was

your day at school?

Yeah? What was the best part?

Guess what. Can you believe

that mommy missed her train?



Uh... about an hour

You should start your homework

No. I promise to tell you

all about it when I see you

I love you. Bye

That was my son Charlie

He's 8. He'll be 9 next week

I'm Paul Martel.

I'll be 28 in July

I'm Constance

And I'm late. I have to go

Before you go, take your book... no?

Oh, no, I... I couldn't. I don't...

Sure, you can

A souvenir

Go down there

You know, like before


Keep going...


Now right

No. Right

Ok, now... the second

shelf from the top...

Take the fourth one

from the left

Got it?

Think so

Open to page 23

"Drink wine

This is life eternal

"This, all that youth

will give to you

"It is the season for wine

roses, and drunken friends

"Be happy for this moment

This moment... "

is your life"

I have to go

Thank you

Can you find your way out?

I hope so

That's my bedroom

It was nice meeting you, Constance

Hey, come back if you need more

books or... medical attention

A perfect 10 there!

Oh, my! Did you see that?

Hey, Glo, hey

That wouldn't be

the TV on, would it?

I was just turning it off

Sure you were

The wind knocked me down today, Glo

Oh, yeah? You all right?

Do you need anything?


- Were you in a fight?

- No, just fell over

Does it hurt?

A little bit


Where are you going?

To get the camera!

- Try this

- Thank you

What do you need a camera for?

It's for school.

We're doing blood and stuff

Ok, now look like it really hurts

- Ready?

- Yep

This'll be great

The wind blew her down...

She bled and everything

Everybody's hats blew off

Look who's the worid photographer

You ok?

Yeah... It took me

down like an old lady

- Honey...

- It's humiliating

Dad, look at the pictures

At least we got the evidence.

Anyone we can sue?

- Whoa!

- No

There was this nice

guy who helped me

It was like this, Dad. It was a twister

Dad, look!

It was like this. This is a tornado

He lived around there. He got me

some Band-Aids and put me in a taxi

Is he good-looking?

I feel sick

Did you do your homework, Charlie?

I can't. I don't know how to do it

Well, come on. I'll help you

You can help me with mine

Did you get his name? This guy?

You can send him a bottle a wine

Cheap wine

Con, stand there a second.

Con, wait a minute...

Just stay there a second. I'm just
