*Not yet translated into the English. The title within parentheses is the Norwegian title's literal meaning."Vær så god" is a polite phrase, literally meaning "Be so good". It is used in contexts where one in English uses "Please help yourself", "Go ahead"/"Here you go", "You're welcome" or "I give you…". It is also used with a name, as in "Jacobsen, vær så god", when replying to a phone call, the way "Jacobsen speaking" could be in English.
