Pirovitch, did you ever get a bonus?

In the kitchen. You get a nice big kitchen.

Klara Novak (Miss Novak):
All my knowledge came from books, and I'd just finished a novel about a glamorous French actress from the Comedie Francaise. That's the theater in France. When she wanted to arouse a man's interest, she treated him like a dog.



Alfred Kralik:
Yes, well, you treated me like a dog.



Klara Novak (Miss Novak):
Yes, but instead of licking my hand, you barked.
