I think that’s good. I think that’s right. We can still be romantic, though, can’t we? Yes, of course. As long as it’s not actually… Minnie. Is that me? Yes. You’re my Minnie Mouse and I’m your bubbalub. Okay. If that’s what you want to do. Minnie. Yes, David? Bubbalub. Bubbalub. May I have a look? Just a peek. You just want to see them? Thank you. I think there’s a house for sale around here. Really? Might be worth a look. Mmm-hmm. Right. Do you want… No. Jenny! Aren’t you coming? We don’t go in. What are you talking about? Why don’t you go and get a nice cup of tea somewhere? Helen will look after you. I don’t need looking after, thank you very much. David… I’m not going to tell you a second time. Run along. Well, they won’t be long, either way. Either way? Well, sometimes they find something and sometimes they don’t. And when they do find something, we often have to leave quite quickly. They can be quite naughty sometimes. Thank you! Bye! Cheerio! Catch! Careful. Careful. Come on. Helen! Pass it back. Good! Jenny! What? You can stand there if you like, but I wouldn’t recommend it.

And if you don’t like it, I’ll understand, and you can go back to Twickenham and listen to the Home Service and do your Latin homework, but these weekends, and the restaurants and the concerts, they don’t grow on trees.

And I never did anything before I met you. And sometimes I think no one’s ever done anything in this whole country, apart from you. Okay. Right. There you are. Night.
