LABORER 1
Now that's what I call a wall!

LABORER 2
It's a masterpiece!

ALEX
It's Picasso!

JENNY
Except it's straight...

GEORGE
Hugo, we should call you Samson!

JENNY
He has many talents.

GEORGE (to ALEX)
How you didn't break your back I'll never know!

ALEX
No, nor will I!

HUGO
Thank God for Sundays!

ALEX (appraising their work)
Not bad for one day's work.

ALL
Our wall will be the talk of Pau!

ROSE
Two more days, then off to Paris.

ALEX
And a school for Jenny.

HUGO
Didn't Jenny look a picture in that dress?

ALEX
Indeed she did.

GEORGE
So like her mother...
Shades of another time...
Of vintage nights --

But I digress...

Good Lord, the time!
Ah well, God bless...

ROSE
Alex, this has gone on long enough --
What I mean is you and Jenny.

HUGO (leaving)
I'll be off now...
See you both tomorrow...

ROSE
Since you came, she's truly blossomed --
But, my friend, a flower is fragile...
Heaven help you if you hurt her...

ALEX
Why all this concern?
God, you're hardly ever here!
Your whole life is your career,
And nothing else matters.

ROSE
My career?
We wouldn't eat if I had no career.
You know that George lost everything.
I do it all for George and Jenny.
I thought you knew that.

ALEX
All right, I'm sorry.

ROSE
Can't you see?
What we three have is something very rare.
In a word, it's happiness.
Nothing in the world will ever
Tear apart the sweet existence
We have spent a lifetime building!

ALEX
Rose, let me explain to you...
Yes, I can't deny the feelings that I have...
But what's wrong with that?

Rose, I'd never harm the girl...

ROSE
You were once prepared to do
A lot of harm to me...

ALEX
You cannot compare
This with our insane affair...
What I wanted from you
Was both body and soul...

ROSE
Aren't you trying to play
An identical role?

ALEX (face to face)
This is one thing that I will control.
