Robert: [calculatingly] We have dinner late and then decide to motor on. The car will conveniently break down - there.

Princess Mironoff: That's original!

Robert: We... we then, walk, three kilometres.

Princess Mironoff: Now don't get too original, darling.

Robert: Well, what's three kilometres on a nice moonlight night? At the end of that walk, by chance, we will arrive at an inn, which, by a strange coincidence I know well. I shall telephone the "patron" and make some interesting reservations.
