Andre Desormeaux: [already seated outside café as Polo sits down]

[Looking intently at Polo's feet]

Andre Desormeaux: No luck huh? You have tramped all over Paris from the Port de la Villette to Montrouge and found no trace of her.

Polo: Yes, that's right. Oh, I've covered all the ballet schools. But how did you know?

Andre Desormeaux: Your feet! Those ugly, tired peasant feet. They tell me the story. You see, I studied hands and feet. I can read them like you can read a book... if you could read.

Polo: Oh, but I can read.

Andre Desormeaux: Of course, you can. You can read words but you can't read between them. Now, for instance

[gestures towards the feet of a passing woman]

Andre Desormeaux: To you, those are just a woman's feet. But I can tell you she's a vendeuse in one of the department stores; stood on her feet all day but she's not tired now. She's going to meet her sweetheart on some corner...

Polo: Amazing!

Andre Desormeaux: [indicating another woman] Woman with the bunions...

Polo: Yes?

Andre Desormeaux: She has given up hope of meeting anyone.

Polo: Remarkable!

Andre Desormeaux: [indicating a passing man] Tan Brogans... American tourist. Big corn on the left little toe... See?
