How would I manage it?
Have myself carried out while asleep?
I get into a state and end up putting everything off again and again.
You have all the time in the world to make up your mind, Miss lbbetson.
Well, I mean until the catalogue is printed.
Don't torment yourself.
Think of yourself your future...
That's the biggest torment of all.
When I think about it I can't even work.
I didn't know you were working.
我写作 写小说 故事…
I write. I write novels, stories...
things like that...
I'd like to read them,I'll buy some.
Luckily for both you and me you'll never manage too.
Because I write under a pseudonym and I loathe what I write.
Artists always loathe what they produce Miss lbbetson.
Yesterday you called me Claire.
我没意识到 我当时很惊慌 抱歉
I wasn't aware I was in a state of alarm. Sorry.
I'd like you to continue.
"I'd like you to continue".
She said it to him just like that.
What did he say?
He was taken aback but he went along with what she wanted.
What else could he do?
Well, I'd have asked her to do the same to call me by my first name.
That's not his style.
Besides, I don't think my friend intends to court her.
Well then he'll never get her out of there.
Besides, I don't think my friend intends to court her...
What a horrible voice.
I'd have thought he would have least desired to see her face.
Desired is probably not the right word.
Curious to see her, perhaps.
Yes I could understand that.
But the chances of it happening seem to me really remote.
Well, there might be a way.
Just depends on how brave your friend is.
有报时钟的法国写字台？ - 有
The French bureau with the chiming clock? - Yes.
The table inlaid with briar on elm? The one with the roll top?
No, I'd like to keep that.
Well, that's it. Next time we'll do the paintings.
One last thing, Claire.
You'll have to decide whether we do the photography here or in a studio.
Better in a studio, I don't want too many people around the house.
That's the best solution.
Well,I'm off now. Anything you need?
No thank you, Mr. Oldman.
When do we next see each other?
You mean when do you see me? Since I am not given that privilege.
Have a good day.
I can't believe it.
I couldn't sleep at night, Virgil.
I had to do something to make you forgive me.
But how did you get it?
I heard that Mrs. Derain had fallen on hard times
so I persuaded her to sell it to me for 250,000 pounds.
Not exactly cheap.
I thought it was a reasonable price.
You were talking about eight million. This way everyone's got a good deal.
How much do you want, Billy?
I don't want a penny more than I gave the old girl.
Now you're really losing your grip.
I just want to get back to where we were.
继续当你的朋友 你的共犯 你可靠的皮条客
When I was your friend, your accomplice your trusty procurer of women.
If you're doing all this to win back my trust
Billy, it's been a bad deal for you
because you never lost it in the first place.
This is great! This is great!
You've found some really important stuff here!
But the best bit is this.
A big step forward, wouldn't you say?
I'd say we're at a turning point
The pieces are beginning to attract each other.
how did things go with your friend?
How many seconds did it take you to realise
I was talking about myself?
Quite a few, to be honest.
Let me confess: I didn't follow your advice.
There was something too contorted about it, to imprudent.
Okay, I see your point.
The mathematical set of a six-day week.
The mathematical set of a fifty-one minute hour.
What will you have, sir?
Have you thought of anything else?
The length of a point.
The direction of a circle.
Your tea's ready, sir.
The edge of a circumference. The centre of space
the area of a segment.
Amazing! Well done.
The vertical position of a sphere.
I've brought you the valuations of the furniture and paintings.
Cast your eye over them carefully because you'll have to authorise them.
I don't know a thing about this.
I know, you'll have to trust me Miss lbbetson.
I notice you've been spending time in the cellars recently.
Is that why you had the locks changed?
I have them changed every six months.
而我则再三确认 比对 更正
And I take care to double check compare and correct
especially when dealing with discarded odds and ends in cellars.
It's how I work. If it upsets you, speak now.
You'll find the new keys on the table. Please take them.
Thank you for your trust.
Were you offended at being locked out?
No, but I was worried.
You're right, I should have told you.
Claire, you're ruining your life for reasons which are beyond me.
This illness of yours is so absurd it almost seems unreal.
Even my mother thought I was faking it the first time.
We were abroad.
I was so afraid of walking at the foot of the Eiffel Tower
that it paralysed me.
I started screaming and fell to the ground. I was just a little girl.
But it kept on happening more and more often
and she had to believe me.
