When he kicks off his shoes, one lands on the floor by the couch while the other appears to bounce off the table onto the floor on the far side of the table. We see Nicole walk in.

Daddy, can I talk to you about something?
Of course. You can talk to me about anything.
Anything at all. What is it? Tell me.
Promise not to yell.
I promise. Now tell me.
It's really not that bad.
You said you wouldn't yell.
That was not yelling, trust me.

This is a great comedy and I recommend it to many viewers. The most hilarious scene in my opinion is when Depardieu is playing the piano in a bar; he doesn't know that his daughter is trying to pass him off as her boyfriend, and he's singing "Thank Heaven for Little Girls" ... all the patrons except for one woman walk out in disgust, thinking he's a child molester! That scene is absolutely priceless and will leave you splitting your sides, guaranteed.
