Birthday Girl (2001)
John: [first lines - to the camera] Running, reading, going out, staying in, countryside, films - if they're good. Intelligent, of course, kind, pretty - I suppose, but it's not critical. Someone you can *really* talk to. I think communication is key.
John: [Asking "Nadia" a bogus question, to see if she really does understand English] Are you a giraffe?
John: Excuse me. It's two Russians are staying here. Do you know which floor they're on?
Porter: Yes, I know which floor they're on.
John: [takes a banknote out of his pocket and holds it] And which floor would that be?
Porter: [taking the banknote] We've only got one floor.
Alexei: [Disdainfully, to John] You, with your nice job and your big house, and you still have to pay for a wife.
