The Concorde... Airport '79 (1979) (part 5 of 6)

Later, Harrison’s jet lands and Andre is waiting with a car. They greet each other warmly. Andre apologizes for the mission’s failure, saying the rogue fighter pilot “was the best money could buy.” Harrison says something must be done. Not tonight, when he can get his girlfriend alone and make a midnight deposit in the Seine. Of course not. No, they’re going to take another crack at the Concorde. He’s remarkably persistent, I’ll give him that. Andre says, “I have already zpoke to zomeone.”

Paul, Isabelle, and Joe run down a rainy Paris street. “Paris always hated foreigners,” grumbles Joe. Inside the restaurant, Paul and Isabelle go to hang up their coats while Joe sits downs to talk with Paul’s friend at the table. She introducers herself and Joe apologizes for any awkwardness, as he’s a recent widower. She says that’s a coincidence, because her husband has just passed away also.

The actress suddenly remembers she’s supposed to be French and, with an accent this time, asks Joe if he has any kids. He proudly says his one son just started school. She says “my Phillipe” is in college as well. It’s amazing how everything about Joe has also happened to her as well. I wonder where this is going.
