Zee and Co.


(He laughs)

Ha, ha! I won.


to 19.

Three games out of four.

What do I get?

The boot?

That's right.






(Loud rock music)

Turn it down.

Christ! It's bloody freezing!

It's bloody Arctic!

If you insist on going around naked...

What are you wearing tonight?

Cloak and dagger?

What would you suggest?

Ooh, something that will last

until four in the morning.

I'm not staying out till four in

the morning. I have to work tomorrow.

Oh, then wear something

orthodox like a suit.


Could you answer me just one question?

Is it black tie or isn't it?

- How should I know?

- Well, could you ring and find out?

She'll say some are wearing black tie

and some are not. All very democratic.

And all a big waste of time.

Oh, don't be so stuffy!

And don't wear that shirt.

Ah, pussycat, I want you to wear

the one I gave you.

Too small.

You must have had a dwarf in mind.

I love you in bright colors!

A peacock.

I love you anyway.

Let's go somewhere on our own tonight.

Gladys will have a fit.

(Sitar music)

(Lively Indian music)

Oh, my darling, wherever you got it,

it's divine!

And I'm so glad to see you.

It was sweet of you to come.

Forgive me, will you?

I must get a drink. I'm parched.

I'll see you later.

Zee, my angel!

- Hello, darling.

- How pretty you look.

- Thank you.

- You, too, darling.

You're such a wonderful color.

Robert told me you'd been to Spain

for a week.

When did you get here?

I didn't see you come in.

- About two drinks ago.

- Only two?

Where's Robert?

Oh, out there someplace.

I'm mad about those earrings.

Oh, thanks. They're fake.


Yes, well, you know, Robert insisted I leave

the real ones in the shop. Insurance, you know.

So sad.

Listen, if you're really looking for him,

the last time I saw him, he was lurking

behind a potted palm over there.

Well, I must go and find him.

I've something I have to tell him about.


I bet you don't know

what the word "byssus" means?

No, I don't, actually, and I don't care.


Having long, silky byssus, or beard.

Oh, how exciting.

Now, I wanted your advice.

There's some very interesting African

sculptures come up for auction at Sotheby's.

They're Nigerian, in point of fact.

But I think they'd be divine

for the rose garden.

Yes. Well, we'll go and have a look

one morning next week.

And afterwards,

we'll have a very smart lunch at Burke's.

Are you sure now?

Because last week when you said that,

you forgot and didn't call.

There is a lady behind you

in a silver dress.

Who is she?

No, the other side, the other side.

Oh. That's darling Stella.

Darling Stella?

Can you effect an introduction?

Of course.

But who told me you'd settled down

and were getting eight hours sleep now?

- That was during one of my fits

of depression. - You're a naughty boy.

Very naughty.

Is she a lady of leisure?

No, no, no.

She owns a boutique.

You know, Oriental tat,

but some rather nice frocks.

Er... Stella, dear!

There's someone who doesn't know you.

I thought you said

this was going to be a small gathering?

No, no, darling, not a small gathering,

just small people.

This is Robert.

Robert Blakeley.

Do you need a bodyguard?

No, I don't think so.

Well, now that I've broken the ice,

I'll circulate.

And don't forget your promise to call.

Yes, Gladys.

What is this?

It's a Koran case.

It's got a dent in it.

I believe I bit it.

Oh, really?

- Do you bite everything?

- No.

Usually, no.

Are you a lady of leisure?

I'm afraid not.

- Well, what, then?

- I have a shop where I design dresses.
