And Vincent? What does he do?
-He has an accounting firm.
Fantastic! That's boring as hell! Believe me, nobody;s an accountant by vocation.
Aren't you dying to quit that job?
-No. Sure, I get bored, like everybody, but...
Stop! You're just like me - on the verge of imploding.

They're almost all over 60. It's the Early Bird Special Club! I thought you understood the plan. The plan is young, pretty and hip. Not a bunch of old bags!

That was my son.
-I can't believe you have such a grown son.
Me either. I mean. Yesterday he was begging not to go to camp. Now he wants to go far away, for a very long time.

-Why not "observant"?
-You can see that you undervalue your abilities. I'm sure Le Moulin Blanc owes as much to you as to your husband.
You're so encouraging!
