(The door bell rings and, a moment later, Gaston opened the door)
I can tell by just looking at you that it would suit you admirably, as you suit it.The house possesses a great many advantages. Electricity, gas, water, telephone, and drainage. The bathroom is beautifully fitted and the roof was entirely repaired last year.
Good afternoon, Madame... Monsieur...
Well I hardly know ... sixty thousand...
I believe in God and so you see ...
What do you mean by 'Oh!'? It isn't worth more than that to me.
What's the price, Madame?
Name some figures, darling .., just to please me.
You will never believe it..
I give you my word of honour, Monsieur, I cannot let it go for less than two hundred thousand.
No, thank you . . . really... I have made up my mind and I'm not very fond of climbing stairs.
One minute, darling. Before you definitely decide, I would love you to go over the upper floor with me.
I will show it to you with the greatest pleasure. This way, Madame. This way, Monsieur. . .
How much?... Well... Won't you sit down?
My wife? Oh, she's upstairs.
I? ... Oh, I'd love to!
Oh! Do you?
See here now, I tell you I'm in a hurry. How much do they want for this house?
You are an exception. Frenchmen usually have to consult about ten people before they get a move on. Listen! Do you or don't you want to sell this house?
I do things standing up.
Now let's see... In that case, entirely furnished, it belonged to my grandfather and I want to keep it. The house! Let me see.. I should say three hundred thousand francs. . . .
Oh, I see!
But you must go over the house...
No!... I want to knock it down and build a bungalow here.
Yep! I have to be near Paramount where I'm going to shoot some films.
Listen, just tell me the price.
Deal done! Keep this cheque with you.
But there are so many things to be discussed before..
We are ready to buy this villa, You said two hundred thousand, didn't you?
Thank you, Madame. Will you give me a receipt, please? Our lawyers will draw up the details of the sale. Please fill in your name
