Weekend in Paradise

congratulations on your promotion

congratulations on your promotion,

Upper Inspector

very funny

all the files for Executive Councilor Dittchen

but again, it wasn't enough for a promotion

everybody except myself

after all that toiling,

again I didn't make it to Upper Executive Councilor

everybody except myself

- Executive Councilor

- Get out!

closing time, Executive Councilor

one works oneself to death

to death

to death

adieu, Wuttke

Executive Councilor

good day

Madame has called from Wiesbaden

she'll be back tomorrow

and she'd like to know

if Monsieur has been promoted

I'd like to ask,

may I go out tonight?

my fianc got promoted and we...

[I don't understand]

what they have against me, Hedwig

I do all the work

and the others have a career


This is Mller. Will you be coming

to our bowling game tonight, Dittchen?

we want to "douse" your promotion


wrong number!

"douse" my promotion

a douse!

in fact,

that's the only thing to do

here you are

your mail, Ministerial Director

here you are

Ministerial Councilor Dr. Grimmeisen

has been promoted to Ministerial Director


where's some entertainment around here?

where can one have a bit of fun around here?

for the "weekend" I recommend

the Schnaken lake

you don't understand,

I'm a bachelor

- I see

- I want to have some fun tonight

why don't you go over to the

"Merry Cockatoo"?

The Merry Cockatoo


# little uncle, you're so sympathetic to me

# little uncle,

I love you fanatically

# in your eyes lies

a sunbeam of happiness

# that's why one yearns for you,

for your sweet baby glance

# little uncle, you're so sympathetic to me

# little uncle,

I love you fanatically

# and if there are thousands of men to chose from...

# then, little uncle,

I chose only you!

# try one's luck,

that's understandable

# the longing stays eternally in the heart, so

# everybody wants to feel love a bit for once

# and often one says to a nice gentleman:

# little uncle, you're so sympathetic to me

# little uncle,

I love you fanatically

# in your eyes lies

a sunbeam of happiness

# that's why one yearns for you,

for your sweet baby glance

# little uncle, you're so sympathetic to me

# little uncle,

I love you fanatically

# and if there are thousands of men to chose from...

# little uncle,

then I only chose you!

may I sit down?

my sister too?

sure, they're all here

kids, I want to become "Upper", Upper Executive

Councilor, but that's none of your business

ladies and gentlemen,

all my life, all my life...

all my life is...

oh well

- can my sister join us?

- your sister? sure

cheers, Lola

there seem to be a lot of siblings

in your family

- good bye

- good bye

come on kids, little Lola,

ah, there you are...

why did you keep me waiting for so long,


another glass, waiter!

["Ober" = upper]

I want to be "upper" too

what do you want to be?

I want to be Upper Executive Councilor

I see, Upper Executive Councilor

you'll become it soon

- yes you will

- I won't, they're all against me

little uncle, don't drink any more

but you're all soaked up

like a bathing sponge

like a bathing sponge?

cheers, my darling

ain't I sitting pretty here

cheers, my darling

what's going on there?

somebody hit me or something

- where?

- I don't know

you! I won't tolerate this!

I forbid you to... forbid... forbid

Excuse me, I was mistaken

once I'm Upper Executive Councilor

then everything'll be alright

then I'll... ouch,

right in the eye

into the pupilla...

where is the...

there he is

you see the guy over there,

looking like a cockatoo

he hit me,

right into the pupillas

I'll give the boy a good dressing down

I'll give the boy a good dressing down

you!... excuse me

you! how dare you act like that!

- are you referring to me?

- of course I am

what do you want?

- I forbid you such behaviour!

- you have nothing forbid in here

gentlemen, I...

gentlemen, I...

that lout has continuously

taken shots at me

- but this is absurd

- you've taken a shot at me three times

how dare you...

what did you mean by this?

# that's why one yearns for you,

your sweet baby glance

# little uncle, you're so sympathetic to me

I want to be "upper"

I want to be "upper"

I want to be "upper"

sure you will,

of course you will, fatty

here you go

- I want to be "upper"

- you will

- here you are

- I want to be "upper"

as soon as a husband is

a grass widower

he get's himself sloshed

he even told me his real name

what an amateur

Dr. Breitenbach Ministerial

Councilor telephone B717

a generous reward to the finder

morning, Executive Councilor

morning, Executive Councilor

- hey!

- quarter past 9

but this has never happened before!

I only hope he hasn't done himself some harm

since they again omitted him

at the promotions

no way!

good morning, Assessor

good morning, Miss Lore

- today is Saturday, how about a little weekend trip?

- out of the question

when I want to take you out

you're always engaged otherwise

I must confess I'm a bit afraid of you

is that so?

you see, I'm just a small steno-typist

and I can bring to my future husband nothing by myself

that's all the dowry I have


in fact, you're a swell girl

what a pity

when I think of my motorcycle

behind me there's a nice empty seat

at every curve,

you press yourself against me

and I...

I know a road...

that consists of nothing but curves

all right, reserve the seat for me

I want to file a complaint

you do hear! where can I do this?

how can I do this?

when can I do this?

come back in an hour

in an hour?

very well

morning, Upper Executive Councilor


Executive Councilor Dittchen

hasn't arrived at the office yet

he behaved so strangely yesterday

maybe one should inform

the Emergency Aid Force

thank you

so I'll send for you later


good morning, Herr von Giersdorf

belated congratulations on your promotion,

Upper Executive Councilor

thank you, thank you, thank you

he's smelling a rat?

I think I know what it is

of course, evil tongues will say:

"just patronage, his uncle the Minister"

but that's ridiculous

I'm telling you:

a real talent will always assert itself

the modern state demands brains


- here you are

- excuse me

hallo! pass it on

to the resort Dittchen

lots of work [I plan to leave]

punctually for the weekend


or with?



I beg your pardon, I was right

something must have happened at Dittchen's

Frau Dittchen is on the phone

she can't get into her apartment

excuse me a moment


this is Upper Executive Councilor

von Giersdorf

forgive me,

but I don't have the keys to my apartment

maybe Madame can trouble herself

and come over here

thank you very much,

Upper Executive Councilor

I'll be in the office in an hour

my deepest regards, Madame,

even though we haven't met yet

I only hope he hasn't done himself some harm

stop those gloomy prophecies,
