JANE:

Then how about you arrange the undertaker?

CLINT:

Which one?

JANE:

(THE FIRST THAT SPRINGS TO MIND) Try Prince’s; they’re reliable.

CLINT:

Sure.

JANE:

And do me a favour – don’t talk to the press guy on the way up. I don’t want

our office passing comment. I’ve got a nine AM with the Devonshire

Undertaker’s Association so hopefully this’ll be the last but the papers’ll be

all over it.

CLINT:

Think this is another botched sea-burial?

JANE:

Lightning doesn’t strike thrice.
