Prof. Calculus: Reporters! They know about my rose.
Reporter: Tell me, Professor... off the record, of course, is there something going on Between la Castafiore and Captain Haddock?
Prof. Calculus: The Captain told you, didn't he?
Reporter: Well... yes and no.
Prof. Calculus: He promised not to tell. It's a secret!
Reporter: Oh naturally! But how soon will it be?
Prof. Calculus: It depends on the weather, of course. But they could be ready in three weeks or so.
