  • who speaks only a little English.

  • And who does Nick like?

  • Stand by for Extra.

  • Job...stuntman.

  • Age...20. 20?

  • No. 30, more mature.

  • Age...30.

  • - Where's the fire? - It's the smoke detector.

  • I know that! Where's the broom?

  • Oh, good, it's stopped.

  • I think this was the problem.

  • Anyone for very hard- boiled eggs?

  • - Nick. - Eh?

  • - Are they your eggs? - Eh?

  • I thought so! What on earth are you doing? Are you crazy?

  • Ah. Are my eggs ready?

  • Oh... Your eggs, Hector.

  • Hector's eggs, Bridget.

  • Is he crazy?

  • Hector...the eggs are, erm, ruined.

  • Perhaps some cornflakes instead?

  • Thank you, Bridget.

  • Hm. Perhaps some cornflakes instead?

  • What are you doing on our computer anyway?

  • Nothing.

  • Let's just say, girls,

  • one day you will say,

  • 'Brad Pitt... Urgh! Pah!

  • 'Johnny Depp... Urgh! Pah!

  • 'Nick from next door... Vroom- vroom- vroom!

  • ''The coolest stuntman in the world.''

  • Well, nearly. I'm waiting for confirmation.

  • Oh, how exciting!

  • The coolest stuntman in the world.

  • On a moped, right?

  • On a Harley- Davidson, actually.

  • Oh! Oh!

  • Have you seen Carina's dress in the magazine? I'd love to have a dress like that.

  • Mm, me too.

  • It would really suit me.

  • - How much is it? - Oh, let's see. Erm...

  • How much?

  • Oh, I'm a student. It's too expensive for me.

  • I've got a job and it's too expensive for me.

  • We need more money.

  • Money?

  • Bridget, Annie, I have something to tell you.

  • Hector, don't. It's a secret.

  • ''The Romero family, one of the richest families in Argentina.''

  • Keep it a secret. Shh. Eh?

  • Shh.

  • What's a secret?

  • You have been very kind.

  • Yes, Hector.

  • I'm sure Bridget and Annie have a little money.

  • Shh, Nick.

  • So I want to...

  • I want to give you some money.

  • Yes?

  • So, I am going...

  • to look for a job.

  • Oh... That's a great idea, Hector.

  • Great!

  • Yeah, we can look for a job on the Internet, can't we?

  • - OK, here we are. Job vacancies. - Well, let's see.

  • Oh. Well, there's a job in a launderette.

  • Hector!

  • No.

  • And there's a job as a gardener.

  • No.

  • Erm, here's a job as a cook.

  • No.

  • Wait a minute. Look at this.

  • A waiter!

  • What a great idea!

  • Yes! Ooh, I love good- looking waiters!

  • Did you say good- looking? Here I am.

  • What about Hector as a waiter?

  • A waiter?

  • Yeah. You know.

  • Oh, but I don't know how.

  • Oh, don't worry. I will teach you.
