Island in the Sun

Aren't you drinking?
You do drink champagne,
don't you?

I mean, it's- it's not forbidden
to union officials, is it?

No, I don't think so.
All right then.
Come along then.

Champagne goes
awfully quickly at parties.

- [Ends]
- [Applause]

Excuse me, ladies.
Excuse me.

Of course, sir.
- Mr. Boyeur is having champagne too.
- [Resumes]

I was asking
the police about you.

- The police?
- Mmm. Colonel Whittingham.

We were sitting
at the same table.

What'd the colonel
have to say?

Young chap, no background,
fighting his way-

no idea where he wants to go, except up.
The colonel also seems to think
you like the idea of your own importance.

The colonel seems to think.
- What do you think?
- I don't know.

Then why are you
trying to find out?

I don't know that either.

Does it make any difference,
having an aim in life?

- An aim?
- Not just floating about-

tea at 5:00, dinner at 8:00,
Tuesdays at the hairdresser's.

Having- Oh, I used to
know the word for it-

a- a cause.
That should depend a great deal
on the person, I should imagine.

You think I'm rather useless, don't you?
Parasitic- that all women of my kind are.

Oh, no, it's true
that we don't know anything-

oh, the ground rules for tennis
or a recipe for shrimp curry...

a- a little charity nursing-
but nothing very important.

I wish there were
something worthwhile...

I could learn
about people, about-

There's a great deal to learn
right here on this island...
