In Naked To The Eye, Antoine is forced to call and ask his landlord for a rent payment extension but this time she says no.
ANTOINE: Mrs. Bugley, surely, you can be kind enough to allow me to pay you in exactly three days…today is Monday, I will have your money no later than Thursday…at the latest. I promise you, on my word…I know, I know this isn’t the first time I’ve been late but this month, with all that’s going on, I find it extremely difficult to be on time. You can understand that, surely? Perhaps I should have phoned you sooner, but I really tried different ways to not have to make this call to you, so…I know I said it was personal and it is, it’s not because I won’t have your money, I assure you, it is only because I have been, I have had to make a payment for something else that was very important, crucial in fact, something out of my control…didn’t really expect this week to take such a turn, such as life does, what can we do…Anyway, please understand, I really need you to permit me to pay the rent this Thursday…there’s no other option at this point, for me at least.
