What's that one?
Oh, it's called an anchor bend, surprisingly.
Hello. Manage to find your way around?
- 嗨! - 查理!
-Ahoy there! -Charlie!
Poirot, you've arrived!
My guess is you're in the entertainment business, too?
不 不 不 先生 我只是个访客
Non, non. Non, monsieur, l am a spectator merely.
Been down here before?
No. No, l was introduced to Sir Charles at a bridge party.
Oh, it is now many years.
你呢 先生 你和他认识很久了吗?
And you, monsieur, you have known him for a long time also?
哦 是的 我们一起上的牛津大学
Ah, yes. We were at Oxford together.
Tell me, why do you think he has retired?
额 "寻找生命中的女人" 老家伙
Well, cherchez la femme, old fruit.
That's all l'll say.
托里! 欢迎! 真高兴见到你!
Tollie, welcome. Good to see you.
- 波洛 - 亲爱的查尔斯
-Poirot. -My dear Charles.
l'm so glad you two have finally met --
my two best friends in all the world.
Good afternoon, Sir Charles.
Here is the menu for dinner.
Before sailing, it was racing cars, remember?
- 接下来是什么? 热气球?
What next? Hot-air balloons?
lf you will excuse me, Sir Charles,
it might be a good idea were l to dine with you tonight.
Well, that would be lovely.
Otherwise, we shall havean odd number of males and females at table.
l'm glad you agree.
Remarkable specimen. How long have you had her?
Six years. First in London, then here.
Runs the place like clockwork.
But now the bloody woman wants to leave.
She's leaving? Why?
She says she has an invalid mother.
Sounds unlikely to me.
l'd be very surprised if Miss Milray had biological parents at all.
Je te remercie for your invitation.
This is a spot most beautiful.
So, tell to me, if you please, who are to be the other guests?
是啊 查理 这出戏里都有谁啊?
Yes, come on, Charlie. Who are the figures in this drama?
The dramatis personae? Very well.
Down from London are Captain and Mrs. Dacres.
Cynthia is, in fact, Ambrosine of Bond Street.
Not the dressmaker that is so celebrated?
Whilst Dacres, once a jockey himself,
is now something of a flat-racing fanatic.
Also from London
is the up-and-coming playwright Anthony Astor.
Does this London lot know the others who are coming?
No. Why should they?
My ingenue tonight will be... Miss Lytton Gore.
Egg Lytton Gore?
Accompanied by her mother, lady Mary.
The genuine article. Long on breeding, short on cash.
Then there are the Babbingtons.
Nothing very notable there, but protocol demands, et cetera.
Best to have the parson along.
Then, last and in every way least,
the young squib Oliver Manders.
The villain of the piece?
Let's just say he's a little bit devious.
Accompanied by... the chip on his shoulder.
Never goes anywhere without it.
And that is my cast.
Ah, but we must not forget Mlle. Milray,
for she is also to join us.
How could one forget Miss Milray? The specter at the feast.
This is Captain Dacres
and the very beautiful Cynthia Dacres.
For many years, madame, l have admired your creations formidable.
How penetrating of you.
Any chance of a drink, old boy?
l'm just about to mix some cocktails.
As soon as the others arrive.
Any tips for Goodwood, Dacres?
You're a man of the turf, l hear.
What else do you know?
l beg your pardon?
What else has she told you?
Well, l'm not ashamed of my profession. Not one bit.
There may well be miners and stevedores and so forth
whose budget does not stretch to couture,
but if any woman is misguided enough to marry one of them,
that, as they say, is her lookout.
Mademoiselle, who is that lady?
哦 那是安东尼·埃斯特 是个剧作家
Oh, that's Anthony Astor, the playwright.
Her real name is Muriel Wills.
Oh, here come the locals.
Oh. You're here.
Come in, come in.
Aye, aye, Skipper.
This is Mlle. Lytton Gore
who calls herself something amusante?
Don't ask me why.
Have a cocktail, Egg.
I say, Sir Charles, you do know some very reactionary people.
People are people. l'm not political.
Oliver's not political either.
He just went to the East End once, by mistake,
and had a "Road to Damascus" Moment.
You of all people, Egg, should know how degrading poverty is.
Oh, l say, steady on.
lt's all right. I can fend for myself.
- 夫人? - 哦 我能喝吗?
-Madam? -Oh, do l dare?
Go on, Mums.
Show Mr. Manders we're not
completely ground down by the iron heel of capitalism.
l think l might have one, too, if my wife permits.
May l have my annual drink, dear?
He'll do exactly as he likes, as usual.
Do come and meet a friend of mine
