The Man Without a Past (2002)
[M is renting an abandoned shipping container]
M: When can I move in?
Anttila: As soon as I turn my back.
M: And the keys?
Anttila: You see a lock anywhere?
Anttila: Don't go splitting hairs then, or I'll take the door, too.
M: I went to the moon yesterday.
Irma: I see. How was it?
Irma: Meet anyone?
M: Not really; it was a Sunday.
Anttila: But if you don't pay, I'll send my killer dog to bite your nose off.
M: It only causes trouble, shadows the way wherever I go.
Anttila: You couldn't smoke in the shower anymore.
M: What do I owe you?
Electrician: If you ever find me face down in the gutter, turn me around to my back.
Nieminen: You've got worker hands. You must have used these hands; you don't look like a reader.
M: Thank you.
Nieminen: You're welcome.
M: I take it you have space for rent?
Anttila: Does the seagull have wings? Does the wolf howl of his loneliness in the woods at night?
[M is cooking dinner]
Irma: Are you sure I can't help?
M: I think it's ruined already.
M: What do you mean?
Anttila: You haven't paid.
M: But I organized this.
Anttila: That's what you think.
M: Is that so?
M: Fancy that.
Anttila: That's outrageous!
M: It is, isn't it?
Nieminen: Rather small potatoes.
M: The weather was bad. But they will make a soup.
Nieminen: When did you plan to make it?
M: Why so interested?
Nieminen: I have an onion. You need it for the soup.
M: I've got eight potatoes. I must save three for winter and at least two as seed potatoes. We farmers must think of the coming years, too. We only eat what is left over. There is not enough for three. I want to invite Irma to dinner.
Nieminen: So none for me?
Nieminen: You're selfish.
M: I am a realist. You city people are children of the moment.
