"I am exhausted"

It flatters your ego", she retorts. Hocine, facing them, seems to revel in their amusing game. For his part, he hopes to be able to draw 3,000 euros from it. But Julien Cohen finally gives his last price: 2,950 euros. Diane Chatelet abdicates, and the glass vase returns to its neighbor. The two stooges end the sale with a smile, no hard feelings.
