- Ah, right on time.
- Oh, Count Rossi (laughs),
this is a surprise.
We weren't expecting to see you today.
- I always have time for Lady Margaret.
I'm almost afraid to ask, but um,
have you given any more thought to our conversation?
- Oh, there's so very much to think about.
- Well, if you would like to show us in,
I'm sure Lady Margaret would be pleased.
- Well first, I did promise the press
you'd answer just a few questions.
- I really don't know if I'm up to it.
- It's just one or two.
It's good for your image.
I'll keep it brief, I promise.
- Lady Margaret, what's your take
on the economic challenges
that face the people of Montenaro?
- As Shakespeare one said,
"Neither a borrower nor a lender be,
"as pennies do not fall from heaven.
"Rather, it is mercy that droppeth
"like a gentle rain from heaven."
Which is why I firmly believe
that a penny saved is a penny earned.
- Can you elaborate on the statement
you made last week on international relations?
- At the time I stated my statement,
I stated what I meant,
and I stand by what I stated,
absolutely, completely, and definitively.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I-
- Is it true that you and Princess Stacy of Belgravia
have remained friends over the past two years?
- Jolly good friends.
- Any plans for another switch?
- (nervous laugh)
If we do, you'll be the first to know.
Now, I really must find my seat.
Thank you all so very much.
- Aren't you supposed to be making hot chocolate?
- (scoffs) Got in a fight with a bag of flour.
- I take it the bag won?
- Kevin, you all right?
Is there something the matter?
- I came here as Margaret's friend, right,
which is fine. I mean,
I'm the one who broke things off in the first place.
But, now that I'm here,
(sigh) I don't know.
- Unlike my wife, I hesitate
to give advice on matters of the heart.
But, if you care for Margaret,
you need to tell her.
- The Christmas Ball's tomorrow.
It's the perfect time to let her how you feel.
- Come on (scoffs).
I mean, it's easy for you to say.
You're a prince.
- Faint heart never won fair maiden, my friend.
- (scoffs) Say what now?
- Go for it.
- Ooh, uh, paper beats rock.
- You're welcome.
- If I might make a small suggestion,
it's probably best if you both enter the palace separately.
- Mm, excellent idea Mr. DeLuca.
We wouldn't want to start any rumors
about you and Stacy.
It would break poor Edward's heart.
- And he would break my face.
- And it's such a lovely face.
- I'll give you some privacy.
- Thank you.
Well now Stacy and I switch back.
- And then I speak to Tony and
let him down gently.
- And then?
- And then I happen to be free for dinner.
- How about that?
So am I.
