The Grand Hotel Budapest – Lobby Boy Interview

 

– Who are you?
– I’m Zero, sir. The new Lobby Boy.
– Zero, you say?
– Yes, sir.
– I’ve never heard of you, never laid eyes on you. Who hired you?
– Mr. Mosher, sir.
– Mr. Mosher!
-Yes, Monsieur Gustave?
– Am I to understand you’ve surreptitiously hired this young man in the position of a Lobby Boy?
– He’s been engaged for a trial period, pending your approval, of course.

– Perhaps, yes. Thank you, Mr. Mosher
– You’re most welcome, Monsieur Gustave.
– You’re now going to be officially interviewed.
– Should I go and light the candle first, sir?
– What? No. Experience?
– Hotel Kinski, Kitchen Boy, six months. Hotel Berlitz, Mop and Broom Boy, three months. Before that I was a Skillet Scrubber
– Experience, zero.
– Thank you again, Monsieur Gustave.
Straighten that cap, Anatole. The pleasure’s mine, Herr Schneider.

– These are not acceptable.
– I fully agree.
– Education?
– I studied reading and spelling. I started my primary school. I almost…
– Education, zero.
– Now it’s exploded.
– Good morning, Cicero. Call the goddamn plumber!
– This afternoon, Monsieur Gustave?
– Without fail, Frau Liebling.
– What in hell is this?
– Not now. Family?
– Zero.
– Six, Igor.
