I took her to Trinitys last night. There was laughing, there was dancing,

there was vodka…

Mistry.

CANDY:

Oh yes… you’re registered with Dr McGuire, aren’t you?

ROB:

Yes, but when I phoned I was told it was his day off.

CANDY:

Only, you can make an appointment to see your regular doctor on

another day if you want to.

ROB:

I know that. I’m not stupid. I want to see Dr Mistry. Alright?

[CANDY IS A LITTLE TAKEN BACK BY HIS BELLIGERENCE]

(EVER THE PEACEMAKER) Why don’t we wait over here?

ROB:

Hang on a minute Janice. (TO CANDY) There’s another thing…

CANDY:

Yes…?

ROB:

What’s your policy on illegal parking?

Yes. Some moron has parked in the disabled parking bay. A grey

Cavalier. (OR WHATEVER MAKE OF CAR CANDY DRIVES)

Anyone here got a grey Cavalier?

CANDY:

If you’d like to leave that with me Mr Overend, I’ll… er… make some
