- 1. After all, I'm an asshole.
- 2. After all, yes, I've got to. I've got to!
- 3. Michel...
- 4. Take me with you.
- 5. - What time is it?
- 6. No. Ciao!
- 7. Gotta make tracks, Max!
- 8. If he thinks he's gonna pass me
in his crappy Renault!
- 9. I collect the dough,
- 10. I ask Patricia if it's yes or no,
- 11. and then...
- 12. Nothing like the countryside.
- 13. I really like France.
- 14. If you don't like the shore...
- 15. if you don't like the mountains...
- 16. if you don't like the city...
- 17. then get stuffed!
- 18. Little girls hitchhiking!
- 19. I'll charge a kiss per mile.
- 20. The short one's not bad. Nice legs.
- 21. Yeah, but the other one...
- 22. Oh, hell, they're both dogs.
- 23. Nothing like sunshine.
- 24. Women drivers
are cowardice personified.
- 25. Pass him!
- 26. Oh, shit, it's the roadwork!
- 27. Never brake.
- 28. As old man Bugatti said:
"My cars are made to run, not stop."
- 29. Shit! The pigs!
- 30. Contact's gone!
- 31. This is the pits!
- 32. Hold it right there!
- 33. - Miss Franchini's room?
- She isn't here.
- 34. - She does live here?
- But she's out!
- 35. Girls never have cash.

- 180 francs.
- 38. Make it one.
- 39. Gotta get a paper. Be right back.
- 40. Can I come in?
- 41. How's it going, precious?
- 42. No jacket?
- 43. It's in my Alfa Romeo.
- 44. - Want breakfast at the Royal?
- I'm late.
- 45. Gotta be at the TV station at 9:10.
- 46. It's torn.
- 47. What've you been up to?
- 48. Nothing much. Traveling.
- 49. - What's new in the Quarter?
- Don't know.
- 50. - You don't go out?
- Dancing sometimes.
- 51. Still in the movies?
- 52. No. You gotta sleep around.
- 53. Do you recollect Enrico?
- 54. "Remember" or "recall."
But not "recollect."
- 55. I work with him at the station.
As script girl.
- 56. When I was broke in December,
I was assistant on a picture.
- 57. At Cinecittà!
- 58. - You?
- Yep, me.
- 59. Ever been a gigolo?
- 60. Why?
- 61. Just asking.
- 62. I wouldn't mind.
- 63. Call me back in a few minutes.
- 64. Is Gaby back from Spain?
- 65. - He bought the Café Pergola.
- He did?
- 66. Great.
- 67. The black paint's a stupid idea.
- 68. - What's that say?
- 69. But I switched to Luckies.
- 70. Can you lend me 5,000 francs
- 71. I should've known.
- 72. You're rotten, Michel.
- 73. I'll pay you back at noon.
- 74. Anyway, I don't have that much.
- 75. - Here's 500 if you want.
- Keep it.
- 76. - So no breakfast at the Royal?
- I'm really late.
- 77. Is Mr. Tolmachoff here?
- 78. He's here, but he's not here.
- 79. Seen Patricia?
- 80. Come with me to Rome?
- 81. It's crazy, but I love you.
- 82. I wanted to see
if I'd be glad to see you again.
- 83. Where you been? Monte Carlo?
- 84. No, Marseilles.
There was a guy I had to see.
- 85. I tried calling you Monday.
- 86. I was out of town Monday and Sunday.
- 87. - I'll take one.
- That's nice of you.
- 88. What are you doing here?
I thought you hated Paris.
- 89. No, but I've got enemies here.
- 90. So you're in danger?
- 91. Yeah. Will you come to Rome with me?
- 92. To do what?
- 93. We'll see.
- 94. No, I've got lots to do here.
- 95. You going up or down the Champs?
- 96. - What's the "Champs"?
- The Champs-Élysées.
- 97. - I gotta be on Avenue George V.
- See you, then.
- 98. Come on, walk me.
- 99. Just to the corner.
- 100. - Take it back. No horoscope!
- What's "horoscope"?
- 101. The future. I wanna know
the future. Don't you?
- 102. Sure.
- 103. - What is it?
- Nothing. Just looking at you.
- 104. You're mad I left without a good-bye.
- 105. No, I was furious
because I was sad.
- 106. It's nice to wake up next to a girl.
- 107. Are you staying in town?
- 108. Yeah, I have to see a guy
who owes me money.
- 109. Then I have to see you.
- 110. You don't have to.
- 111. Why?
- 112. There are prettier girls than me here.
- 113. No. It's weird.
I've slept with two girls since you.
- 114. We didn't jive at all.
- 115. You didn't "jive"?
- 116. They were pretty,
but we didn't jive. It was sad.
- 117. So will you come to Rome?
I'm fed up with France.
- 118. I can't, Michel.
- 119. I have to enroll at the Sorbonne
or my parents will stop sending money.
- 120. - I've got money.
- We only had three nights together.
- 121. No, five.
- 122. - Why don't you wear a bra?
- That's no way to talk.
- 123. Okay, sorry!
- 124. What time is it? See you later?
- 125. Not later. Tonight. Okay?
- 126. - Where?
- 127. Live dangerously until the end!
- 128. Have you anything against youth?
- 129. Sure do. I prefer old people.
- 130. Police Killer Identified

- 133. - Hey, amigo.
- Hey, sonny.
- 134. You the one who came by at 10:00?
- 135. Yeah, for my money.
- 136. It's ready for you.
- 137. - How's life?
- I got bored down south.
- 138. I came up to see a girl. And you?
- 139. I'm getting out of here.
I'm rusting away.
- 140. Better rusted than busted.
- 141. Over here.
- 142. Have the envelope I gave you?
- 143. Why'd the jerk cross it?
- 144. Sign it over to someone else.
- 145. Not to me.
I blew my last cent at the races.
- 146. And your pal, Bob Montagné?
- 147. - He's in the pen, the idiot.
- No kidding.
- 148. There's Berruti, but I don't trust him.
- 149. I thought he was your pal.
- 150. Is he back?
- 151. Yes, I saw him
in Montparnasse last night.
- 152. What's his number?
- 153. Élysées 9984.
- 154. Can I call from here?
- 155. Who's the girl you came for?

- 162. He's out. I'll try somewhere else.
- 163. - Bye, sonny.
- Ciao, amigo.

- 167. Know a certain Michel Poiccard?
- 168. Also goes by the name
of László Kovács.
- 169. Ask the gentleman over there.
- 170. If it isn't Tolmachoff!
- 171. Hello, Inspector.
- 172. In the travel business now?
- 173. As you can see.
- 174. Remember how you ratted
on your friend Bob?
- 175. What if I did?
- 176. You're going to do it again.
- 177. Michel Poiccard, 5'9".
- 178. Brown hair.
Former Air France steward.
- 179. Has his mail sent here.
- 180. Yes, I know him.
- 181. He been around lately?
- 182. Has anyone been to see
Mr. Tolmachoff recently?
- 183. Yes, just five minutes ago.
A fairly tall man.
- 184. Christ Almighty!
- 185. "Accessory to murder"-
mean anything to you?
- 186. The Harder They Fall
- 187. Bogey...
- 188. - I saw a man die.
- How'd he die?
- 189. In an accident.
- 190. Take me out to dinner?
- 191. Let me make another call first.
Wait for me?
- 192. Call from the restaurant.
- 193. I'll just be a second.
- 194. The French always say one second
when they mean five minutes.
- 195. Where we going?
- 196. Anywhere. The Latin Quarter.
- 197. - Sleep with me tonight?
- I don't know.
- 198. - Don't you like it with me?
- Sure, I do.
- 199. I just read something neat.
About a bus conductor.
- 200. He stole five million to seduce a girl,
posing as a rich impresario.
- 201. He took her to the Riviera.
They blew the wad in three days.
- 202. The guy didn't cop out.
He told her,
- 203. "It's stolen money, I'm a hood,
but I like you."
- 204. What's great is that she stuck by him.
She said, "I like you, too."
- 205. They came back to Paris
- 206. and were nabbed trying to rob
some fancy villas.
- 207. She stood lookout.
That was sweet of her.
- 208. Excuse me, got a light?
- 209. Here! Go buy yourself a matchbook.
- 210. I totally forgot!
- 211. - I have an appointment.
- Who with?
- 212. A journalist on the Champs-Élysées.
We're going to a press conference.
- 213. Where? Now?
- 214. None of your business.
You can really be annoying.
- 215. So you're leaving me?
- 216. But I'll see you tomorrow.
- 217. Not tomorrow.
- 218. I told you I can't.
- 219. Why are you so mean?
- 220. Any taxis around?
- 221. I'm parked by the Opera. Want a lift?
- 222. What happened to the Ford?
- 223. It's in the garage.
- 224. Let me stay with you.
- 225. I've got a headache.
- 226. We won't have sex.
I just want to be with you.
- 227. That's not it, Michel.
- 228. - Why are you so sad?
- Because I am.
- 229. That's silly.
- 230. Why are you so sad?
- 231. Should I use "vous" or "tu"?
- 232. No difference.
But I can't do without you.
- 233. Yes, you can.
- 234. Maybe. But I don't want to.
- 235. Just look at that swell Talbot.
A 2.5 liter.
- 236. - You're a guy who...
- 237. Oh, I don't know.
- 238. Look at me.
I forbid you to meet this guy.
- 239. Woe is me!
- 240. I love a girl with a pretty neck,
- 241. pretty breasts, a pretty voice,
- 242. pretty wrists,
- 243. a pretty forehead,
- 244. and pretty knees...
- 245. But she's such a coward.
- 246. - It's right here. Stop.
- Let me park first.
- 247. Don't bother.
- 248. Get lost!
- 249. I never want to see you again.
- 250. Get lost!
- 251. You make me want to puke.
- 252. It'd be a shame
if that happened to you.
- 253. We'll see.
- 254. What's wrong?
- 255. If I could dig a hole
to hide in, I would.
- 256. Do like elephants do.
When they're sad...
- 257. Let me tell you a story.
- 258. It'll take your mind off things.
- 259. There's this girl I know.
- 260. The other day, I figured,
"I'll ask her to sleep with me."
- 261. It had never occurred to me before.
We met for lunch.
- 262. I wanted to say,
"We're friends. Let's sleep together."
- 263. I don't know why,
but it completely slipped my mind!
- 264. Later I suddenly remembered
and sent her a telegram saying:
- 265. "I forgot to suggest
that we sleep together."
- 266. Three hours later I get
a message back, saying:
- 267. "What an amazing coincidence!
- 268. I was thinking exactly the same thing!"
- 269. - This the late edition?
- Yes, sir.
- 270. Where's my key?
- 271. You must've left it in the door.
- 272. What the heck!
- 273. What are you doing here?
- 274. The Claridge was booked up.
- 275. So I came here.
I took the key downstairs.
- 276. There are other places
than the Claridge.
- 277. I always stay at the Claridge.
- 278. You're crazy.
- 279. Don't make such a face.
- 280. It doesn't suit you.
- 281. - What's "making a face"?
- Going like this.
- 282. It suits me just fine.
- 283. You're even crazier than me.
- 284. Goddammit.
- 285. I always fall for girls
who aren't my type.
- 286. Did you notice I followed you
last night? Answer me.
- 287. What's wrong?
- 288. Leave me alone. I'm thinking.
- 289. What about?
- 290. What's horrible is, I don't even know.
- 291. Well, I do.
- 292. No, nobody does.
- 293. You're thinking about last night.
Yes, you are.
- 294. Last night I was furious,
but now I couldn't care less.
- 295. I'm not thinking about anything.
- 296. I'd like to think about something,
but I can't seem to.
- 297. Well, I'm tired, very tired,
- 298. and I'm going back to sleep.
- 299. - Why are you looking at me?
- Because I am.
- 300. - You should've stayed with me.
- I couldn't.
- 301. You should've told the guy
you couldn't see him.
- 302. I had to.
He's getting me articles to write.
- 303. It's really important for me.
- 304. What's important
is going to Rome with me.
- 305. Maybe. I don't know.
- 306. Did you sleep with him?
- 307. I bet you did.
- 308. No. He's really sweet.
- 309. He said we'd sleep together
someday, but not now.
- 310. But he doesn't even know me.
- 311. Not you. Him and me.
- 312. We had a drink in Montparnasse.
- 313. I was there, too. At what time?
- 314. I don't know. We didn't stay long.
- 315. Why'd you come here, Michel?
- 316. Because I want to sleep
with you again.
- 317. That's hardly a reason.
- 318. Sure it is. It means I love you.
- 319. But I don't know if I love you yet.
- 320. When will you know?
- 321. Soon.
- 322. What's that mean, "soon"?
In a month, a year?
- 323. Soon means soon.
- 324. A woman will never do in eight seconds
- 325. what she'll gladly do eight days later.
- 326. It's all the same,
eight seconds or eight days.
- 327. Why not eight centuries?
- 328. No, eight days is fine.
- 329. Women always do things halfway.
- 330. It gets me down.
- 331. Why won't you sleep with me?
- 332. Because I'm trying to find out
- 333. what it is that I like about you.
- 334. I want us to be
like Romeo and Juliet.
- 335. That's just like a girl!
- 336. See? You said last night you couldn't
live without me, but you can.
- 337. Romeo couldn't live without Juliet,
but you can.
- 338. No, I can't live without you.
- 339. That's just like a guy!
- 340. Give me a smile.
- 341. I'll count to eight.
- 342. If by eight you haven't smiled,
I'll strangle you.
- 343. Two...
- 344. Three...
- 345. Four, five, six...
- 346. Seven...
- 347. Seven and a half...
- 348. Seven and three quarters.
- 349. You're such a coward.
I bet you're gonna smile.
- 350. Enough games for today.
- 351. You're a coward. Too bad.
- 352. Why do you say that?
- 353. You get on my nerves.
- 354. You do, too.
- 355. I'm not a coward.
- 356. What makes you think I'm scared?
- 357. If a girl says everything's fine
then can't even light her cigarette,
- 358. it means she's scared of something.
- 359. I don't know of what, but she's scared.
- 360. Have one.
- 361. None of those Chesterfields.
- 362. Hand me my jacket.
- 363. - This pocket?
- 364. This your passport?
- 365. No, my brother's. Mine's in the car.
- 366. But it says Kovács here.
- 367. Oh, yeah? He's not my real brother.
- 368. My mom was divorced
by the time he was born.
- 369. See? I'm not scared.
- 370. - I never said you were.
- You bet, pet.
- 371. But you wish you'd said it.
And now you're annoyed. You can't.
- 372. I'm not talking to you anymore.
- 373. Do you ever think about death?
- 374. I do, all the time.
- 375. What?
- 376. Say something nice.
- 377. Like what?
- 378. I don't know.
- 379. Then neither do I.
- 380. I like your ashtray.
- 381. It's Swiss.
- 382. My granddad had a Rolls-Royce.
- 383. Never had to raise the hood
in 15 years!
- 384. Seen my new poster?
- 385. Come here!
- 386. Come here, for chrissake!
- 387. It won't do here. Where can I hang it?
- 388. Why'd you slap me
when I looked at your legs?
- 389. It wasn't my legs.
- 390. It's exactly the same thing.
- 391. The French always say things
are the same when they're not at all.
- 392. I've thought of something nice.
- 393. What?
- 394. I want to sleep with you again
because you're beautiful.
- 395. I'm not.
- 396. Then because you're ugly.
- 397. Is it the same?
- 398. Yeah, kid, it's the same.
- 399. You're a liar, Michel.
- 400. No, lying's stupid.
- 401. It's like with poker.
It's better to tell the truth.
- 402. The others think you're bluffing,
and that's how you win.
- 403. What's wrong?
- 404. I'll stare at you
until you stop staring at me.
- 405. Me, too.
- 406. I'll hang my poster in the bathroom.
- 407. Can I make a call?
- 408. It's not bad here.
- 409. Just fine.
- 410. You like this poster?
- 411. It's okay.
- 412. Renoir's a really great painter.
- 413. I said, it's okay!
- 414. Think she's prettier than me?
- 415. When you're scared or surprised,
or both at once,
- 416. there's a funny glint in your eyes.
- 417. So what?
- 418. I wanna sleep with you again,
because of that glint.
- 419. Mind if I piss in the sink?
- 420. Guess what I'm going to say.
- 421. No idea.
- 422. I'm pregnant, Michel.
- 423. You heard me.
- 424. Whose is it? Mine?
- 425. I think so.
- 426. Have you seen a doctor?
- 427. Yesterday.
- 428. I have to go back Thursday
for the tests.
- 429. You should've been more careful!
- 430. Get me Élysées 9984.
- 431. Is Antonio there?
- 432. You don't know if he's coming back?
- 433. I'll call again.
- 434. Élysées 2532.
- 435. I'm calling the guy
who owes me money.
- 436. Mr. Tolmachoff, please.
- 437. Hey, sonny.
- 438. I couldn't find Berruti.
- 439. I wandered
around Montparnasse all night.
- 440. The police?
- 441. Thanks. Ciao, sonny.
- 442. Shit!
- 443. - What?
- I slipped.
- 444. Heard the one
about the condemned man?
- 445. As he's climbing the scaffold,
he slips and says, "That figures!"
- 446. Up close, you look like a Martian.
- 447. Because my head's in the clouds.
- 448. Some idea, having a kid!
- 449. But it's not sure.
- 450. I wanted to see what you'd say.
- 451. - Take your clothes off.
- What for?
- 452. You Americans are so dumb.
- 453. I don't see why.
- 454. You adore La Fayette
and Maurice Chevalier.
- 455. And they're the dumbest French!
- 456. I'm making another call.
- 457. Belle Épine 3526.
- 458. Patricia, come here!
- 459. Mr. Mansard?
- 460. Will he be in this afternoon?
Tell him I'll come by.
- 461. I'm a friend of Tony's.
- 462. I've got an American.
- 463. An American?
- 464. László Kovács.
- 465. Not you. My American car.
- 466. I can't reach the guy
who owes me. What a drag!
- 467. Do you prefer records or the radio?
- 468. Quiet, I'm thinking.
- 469. I know them all by heart.
- 470. - How old are you?
- I'll put the radio on.
- 471. I'm 20.
- 472. You don't look it.
- 473. Why don't you like music?
- 474. It depends what kind.
- 475. Come on, Patricia, come to Italy.
- 476. What's the point of studying
at the Sorbonne?
- 477. You never took any exams.
- 478. Sure, the baccalaureate.
Then I packed it in.
- 479. What's "packed it in"?
- 480. I did other stuff.
- 481. Like what?
- 482. I sold cars.
- 483. Here, in Paris?
- 484. In New York.
- 485. You slept with a lot of guys?
- 486. Not all that many.
- 487. How many?
- 488. How about you?
- 489. Not so many either.
- 490. Know where I'd like to live? Mexico.
- 491. I hear it's really great.
- 492. When I was a kid my dad would say,
"We'll go next Saturday."
- 493. But he'd always forget.
- 494. No, Mexico doesn't grab me.
- 495. I bet it's not all that great.
- 496. People are such liars.
- 497. It's like Stockholm. You keep hearing,
- 498. "Swedish girls are terrific.
I laid three a day. Go."
- 499. I went. It's not true.
- 500. Swedish girls don't act
the way they do here.
- 501. And most of them are dogs
like Parisian girls.
- 502. No, Swedish girls are very pretty.
- 503. It's a myth.
- 504. One or two maybe, just like in Paris
or London, but not all of them.
- 505. The cities where the girls are pretty,
- 506. not gorgeous,
but like you, charming,
- 507. girls who rate eight on a scale of 10,
- 508. because they have a certain something...
- 509. aren't Rome or Paris or Rio,
but Lausanne and Geneva.
- 510. Say something nice, too.
- 511. I don't know what, either.
- 512. Would you let another guy caress you?
- 513. You know, you said I'm scared.
It's true, I'm scared.
- 514. Because I want you to love me.
- 515. But at the same time,
I want you to stop loving me.
- 516. I'm very independent, you know.
- 517. I love you, but not the way you think.
- 518. Then how?
- 519. Not the way you think.
- 520. But you don't know what I think.
You don't know.
- 521. - Sure I do.
- No. You can't.
- 522. I want to know what's behind your face.
- 523. I've looked at it for 10 minutes now,
and I still know nothing, nothing.
- 524. I'm not sad, but I'm scared.
- 525. Sweet, gentle Patricia.
- 526. Then mean, stupid, heartless,
pathetic, cowardly, despicable.
- 527. You don't even know
how to put on your lipstick.
- 528. Now you're hideous.
- 529. Say what you like, I don't care.
- 530. I'll put all this in my book.
- 531. - What book?
- I'm writing a novel.
- 532. - You?
- Why shouldn't I?
- 533. What are you doing?
- 534. Taking off your top.
- 535. Not now.
- 536. You're a pain! What is all this?
- 537. You know William Faulkner?
- 538. No, who's he?
Someone you slept with?
- 539. Hardly, sweetie pie.
- 540. Then he can go to hell!
- 541. Take off your top.
- 542. He's one of my favorite writers.
Have you read The Wild Palms?
- 543. I said no! Take off your top.
- 544. Listen. The last sentence is beautiful.
- 545. Which would you choose?
- 546. Let me see your toes.
- 547. Toes are important in a woman.
- 548. Which would you choose?
- 549. Grief's stupid.
- 550. I'd choose nothing.
- 551. It's not better...
- 552. but grief's a compromise.
- 553. I want all or nothing.
- 554. And now I know.
- 555. That's it.
Why are you shutting your eyes?
- 556. I'm shutting them tight
so everything goes black.
- 557. But I can't do it.
It's never entirely black.
- 558. Your smile...
- 559. seen in profile,
is the nicest thing about you.
- 560. That's you.
- 561. That's me!
- 562. We look each other in the eyes,
but what for?
- 563. I hate that name.
I'd like to be called Ingrid.
- 564. Sit on your haunches.
- 565. What's wrong?
- 566. I'm looking at you.
- 567. The French are stupid too.
- 568. I want you to stay with me.
- 569. We interrupt our programming
to synchronize our transceivers.
- 570. Funny... I can see myself in your eyes.
- 571. This is Franco-American
- 572. We hide like happy elephants.
- 573. A woman's hips are touching.
- 574. It's hot under here.
- 575. If it was another man caressing you,
would you mind?
- 576. You asked me that.
- 577. And now it's time for
Music While You Work...
- 578. So that's that.
- 579. Do you know a book by Dylan Thomas,
Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog?
- 580. On Sunday morning,
It's most satisfyin '
- 581. To enjoy a long lie-in
- 582. I'm getting dressed.
- 583. What time is it?
- 584. Noon.
- 585. Was it good?
- 586. Let's stay in bed.
- 587. Nope, I have to buy a dress.
- 588. Got your car?
- 589. My car? Sure.
- 590. Élysées 9984.
- 591. Did Antonio come by?
- 592. This is maddening!
- 593. You don't know where he is?
- 594. No, never mind.
- 595. Michel Poiccard again.
- 596. Want me to wear a bra?
- 597. Do you prefer my eyes,
my mouth or my shoulders?
- 598. If you had to choose?
- 599. There is no press conference?
- 600. There is. At Orly airport.
- 601. I'm not much of a looker,
but I'm quite a boxer.
- 602. Going to your press conference?
- 603. I have to drop by the office first.
- 604. I'll come with you.
- 605. President Eisenhower,
with General De Gaulle,
- 606. will lay a wreath
on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
- 607. Were you in the army?
- 608. What did you do?
- 609. I bumped off sentries.
- 610. "Bumped off"?
- 611. I laid them out like this.
- 612. Don't, Michel!
- 613. I'm exhausted. I'm gonna die.
- 614. You're crazy.
- 615. Yeah, totally bonkers.
- 616. What's "bonkers"?
- 617. That's me.
- 618. Your car's not here?
- 619. It's at the garage.
I'll go pick it up now.
- 620. Swell, a Ford!
- 621. - What floor?
- 622. I got the wrong floor.
- 623. - Are you scared of aging? I am.
- You dope!
- 624. I told you,
the worst flaw is cowardice.
- 625. Buy me a dress at Dior?
- 626. No way! There are
nicer ones at the five-and-ten.
- 627. You don't buy dresses at Dior,
you make calls.
- 628. It's the only place
where you can call for free.
- 629. There are 12 phone booths.
- 630. France-soir!
- 631. Thank you, sir.
- 632. How long will it last?
- 633. Half an hour or so.
- 634. I'll go see my man, then.
- 635. Why did you call your novel Candida?
- 636. I'm convinced that the French
will give my book
- 637. a cool reception
because of their prudishness.
- 638. Mr. Parvulesco!
- 639. Can one still believe in love in our time?
- 640. Of course, especially in our time.
- 641. Was Rilke right to say, "Modern life will
increasingly separate men and women"?

so he was probably right.
- 643. Out of my way!
- 644. You and your Pathé-Journal!
- 645. Are French women romantically
different from American women?

few women indulge in.

and vice versa.

love in a lifetime?
- 666. Physically, I mean.
- 667. More than that.
- 668. Miss, you're in the frame.
- 669. Two things matter in life. For men,
it's women, and for women, money.

- 687. So?
- 688. So it's this one.
- 689. 800,000.
- 690. But I can't pay you till next week.
- 691. You're a bastard!
- 692. And you, Mr. Kovács? What are you?
- 693. So what?
- 694. So you don't get the money now.
- 695. - Tough. Is it 3:00 yet?
- Quarter past.
- 696. Can I use your phone?
- 697. - Is Antonio there?

Me, not a scratch!

They ruin the block.

- 718. Go through Chatelet.
It's your fault if we're late.
- 719. No, it isn't.
- 720. Pass that Peugeot!
- 721. Don't shift gears!
- 722. Braking for a 4CV!
That scooter just passed you!
- 723. Take the next left.
- 724. Stop here. Be right back.
- 725. He left five minutes ago.
- 726. The friend who owes you money?
- 727. Antonio Berruti, yeah. It's your fault.
- 728. Now it's double or nothing.
- 729. - Why?
- 730. Pass that 2CV, pops.
- 731. - Where you going?
- To the Herald.
- 732. Eyes on the road!
- 733. Why bother writing?
- 734. To have money and not rely on men.
- 735. Parisians look like tarts
in those short dresses.
- 736. Makes me wanna run up behind them
and do like this...
- 737. Don't mind me!
- 738. Stop here!
- 739. - Be right back.
- 740. - Not paying?
- 741. - Where are we going?
- The Champs-Élysées.
- 742. I hate cabbies who worry
about scratching the bodywork.
- 743. The Gestapo put up a wall here
- 744. so nobody could get away.
- 745. I've been thinking about that girl.
- 746. What girl?
- 747. The one with that guy on the Riviera.
- 748. You said you admired her.
- 749. Yeah, a normal girl. That's rare.
- 750. Come with me to the paper?
- 751. No, I have a call to make.
- 752. I'm going to see my tailor.
I'll pick you up later.
- 753. Ciao, kiddo!
- 754. You're late. They're waiting.
- 755. Over there.
- 756. You speak French?
- 757. You know this man?
- 758. Careful, kid.
You can't fool the Paris police.
- 759. Yes, it's Michel.
- 760. I didn't recognize him.
It's an old photo.
- 761. You were seen with him
this morning just outside.
- 762. Who saw me?
- 763. He was driving
a Ford Thunderbird 3382 GM75.
- 764. Where is he now?
- 765. I don't know.
- 766. Watch what you say, kid.
- 767. I've seen him five or six times.
- 768. I found him nice. I don't know
where he lives or what he does.
- 769. Known him long?
- 770. I met him in Nice last month.
I was on vacation.
- 771. He came to Paris to see someone
who owes him money.
- 772. Who?
- 773. I don't know.
He had an Italian name.
- 774. Think you'll see him again?
- 775. Maybe. Sometimes he calls me
and asks me out. Like this morning.
- 776. Got a work permit?
- 777. You don't want any passport problems?
- 778. No, I don't.
- 779. So if you see him, here's my number.
- 780. Danton 0100.

- 785. Yeah, better wait till dark.
- 786. Beware, Jessica
- 787. On the kiss's beveled edge
Time is a void
- 788. A void, a void
Memory's broken pledge
- 789. You're wrong, sheriff
- 790. Your tale is noble and tragic
Like the mask of a tyrant
- 791. No drama so perilous or magnetic
No detail can make our love pathetic
- 792. Hey, cutie!
- 793. POLICE CLOSING IN ON MICHEL POICCARD...
- 794. - What's it say?
- I'm reading it.
- 795. The cops are stupid to be after me.
- 796. I'm one of the few people
who likes cops.
- 797. Let me caress you.
- 798. Say something!
- 799. - Wow!
- 800. - So you're married.
- Show me.
- 801. That was ages ago.
- 802. She was a wacko. She dumped me.
- 803. Or I dumped her. Don't remember.
- 804. I'm really fond of you.
- 805. What's it feel like,
riding in a stolen car?
- 806. - And killing a policeman?
- I was scared.
- 807. How did they know I knew you?
- 808. Someone must've seen us together
and informed on us.
- 809. - That's horrible.
- What is?
- 810. Informing on people.
- 811. No, it's normal. Informers inform,
- 812. burglars burgle,
- 813. murderers murder, lovers love.
- 814. Look, isn't the Concorde gorgeous!
- 815. Yes, mysterious, with all the lights.
- 816. I was a fool to keep this car.
- 817. - What?
- Switch cars.
- 818. Let's steal the Cadillac?
- 819. What about the keys?
- 820. You drive, I hide.
They leave the keys in the car here.
- 821. - What do I tell the man?
- Say good night, in English.
- 822. That'll shut him up.
The French are yellow-bellied.
- 823. "Yellow-bellied"?
- 824. Scared stiff. You scared?
- 825. It's too late to be scared.
- 826. I just gotta find Antonio.
- 827. Once you look for someone,
you never find him.
- 828. Who was that?
- 829. - Step on it, poppet.
- What's "poppet"?
- 830. Have you seen Antonio?
- 831. I'll tell you if I can kiss her.
- 832. It's not up to me.
- 833. It's up to her.
- 834. He's with Zumbach.
- 835. Carl!
- 836. - How's life?
- The same. Antonio here?
- 837. There he is.
- 838. - Who is he?
- 839. No, the other one.
- 840. Let's see those socks.
- 841. Silk socks with a tweed jacket!
- 842. - I like silk.
- Not with tweed!
- 843. - Hey, amigo.
- Hey, sonny.
- 844. I'll be off.
- 845. You been looking for me?
You called several times.
- 846. Yeah, I'm in the shit. Goddammit!
- 847. Got a minute?
- 848. - See that guy?
- What do I say?
- 849. Anything you want.
- 850. I'll just be a sec.
- 851. - What will they do?
- Take photos of her kissing the guy.
- 852. - What for?
- Blackmail, probably.
- 853. Be right back.
- 854. Who's the chick?
- 855. - To make things worse, I love her.
- 856. 1.3 million. Can do.
- 857. What's the bank?
- 858. - B.N.C.I.
- Let me see.
- 859. What do we do?
- 860. Don't know.
- 861. - Where can I reach you tomorrow?
- Don't know.
- 862. The hotels are crawling with
- 863. My friend in Montmartre
has a big place.
- 864. - Not Montmartre.
- Not Montmartre, he says.
- 865. Why not?
- 866. Too many enemies in Montmartre.
- 867. Try Zumbach's Swedish girl.
- 868. Rue Campagne-Première?
- 869. Call me there tomorrow.
- 870. Antonio said we could sleep here.
- 871. Sure. Sit down.
I'll be right with you.
- 872. Smile!
- 873. Why not pose? Pay's good.
- 874. You have to sleep around.
- 875. I was just thinking...
- 876. - What?
- I'm not sure.
- 877. About?
- 878. I don't know. Otherwise I'd be sure.
- 879. You dump your journalist?
- 880. Why'd you say hello?
- 881. To make sure
I didn't love him anymore.
- 882. You complicate your life.
- 883. That's it.
Drop me on the Champs-Élysées?
- 884. What are you playing?
- 885. The "Clarinet Concerto" by Mozart.
Do you mind?
- 886. No, I like that one.
- 887. I thought you didn't like music.
- 888. This one's okay.
My dad was a clarinetist.
- 889. My dad was a great clarinet player.
- 890. Want to go to bed?
- 891. Sleeping's so sad.
- 892. We have to separ.
- 893. - ... ate.
- 894. You say "sleep together," but you don't.
- 895. What is it?
- 896. Nothing.
- 897. Come here.
- 898. Go buy a France-soir
and a bottle of milk.
- 899. What time is it?
- 900. Five o'clock.
- 901. Still busy.
- 902. - What?
- 903. France-soir!
- 904. I'm looking at you.
- 905. It's your lucky day. Buy a ticket.
- 906. - A Scotch.
- Don't have any.
- 907. Make it coffee.
- 908. Danton 0100?
- 909. Inspector Vital, please.
- 910. Patricia Franchini.
- 911. I've just seen the man
you've been looking for.
- 912. He's at 11, rue Première-Campagne.
- 913. Yes. 11, rue Campagne-Première.
- 914. Thirsty?
- 915. Antonio's coming. He just called.
- 916. We're going to Italy, kid.
- 917. I can't go.
- 918. Sure you can. I'm taking you.
- 919. Berruti's lending me his Simca Sport.
- 920. - A Gordini engine.
- Michel, I called the police.
- 921. I said you were here.
- 922. What! Are you crazy?
- 923. No, I'm fine.
- 924. No, I'm not fine.
- 925. I don't want to go away
with you now.
- 926. I knew it.
- 927. I don't know.
- 928. I just talked about myself,
and you, yourself.
- 929. I'm so stupid.
- 930. You should've talked about me,
and me, about you.
- 931. I don't want to be in love with you.
- 932. That's why I called the police.
- 933. I stayed with you
to make sure I was in love with you.
- 934. Or that I wasn't.
- 935. And since I'm being mean to you,
- 936. it proves I'm not in love with you.
- 937. Say that again!
- 938. And since I'm being mean to you,
- 939. it proves I'm not in love with you.
- 940. They say there's no happy love.
- 941. If I loved you...
- 942. It's too complicated!
- 943. On the contrary, there's no unhappy love.
- 944. I want people to let me be.
- 945. I'm independent.
- 946. - Maybe you love me.
- You think you are. You're not.
- 947. That's why I turned you in.
- 948. I'm better than you are.
- 949. Now you have no choice but to go.
- 950. You're crazy!
- 951. That's a pathetic argument.
- 952. You're like the girl
who sleeps with everyone...
- 953. except the one man who loves her...
- 954. saying it's because she sleeps
- 955. Why don't you go?
- 956. I've slept with lots of men.
Don't count on me.
- 957. What are you waiting for?
- 958. No, I'm staying. I'm in bad shape.
- 959. I prefer prison.
- 960. You're mad!
- 961. Nobody'll talk to me.
- 962. I can look at the walls.
- 963. Damn, Berruti!
- 964. Hey, amigo! I'll just park.
- 965. - The cops are coming.
- Your money!
- 966. The American girl turned me in.
- 967. - Get in!
- No, you go!
- 968. - Get in!
- No, I'm staying.
- 969. I'm fed up.
