The water's warm. Jump on in.

Yeah, right. All in.

Three kings.

- Oh, damn, I've only got three tens.|- Get in, yer dancer!

Come here, you lovely, lovely little...

Oh, look at his wee face.

I've got a pair of queens as well,|if that helps.

Oh, come on, sit down, Alex. Shock's|best absorbed with the knees bent.

Full house. Let him take it.

Don't spend it all in one pub.

I can retire to the Bahamas|like Roger Moore.

- You mean Sean Connery.|- I'm in the Roger Moore camp.

There's nothing|wrong with a little bit of camp.

That's a horrible impression.

- It isn't.|- It is.

It's not!

Alex, what is this?|Where's the Queen?

That's legal tender.|It's a Scottish tenner.

It's worse than Monopoly money.|I can't buy anything with this.

I've only got two words for you.

- Yeah, do they involve sex and travel?|- Possibly.

Well, don't say them.

That's our cue to leave.|Goodnight, everybody.

- F*ck off!|- Leave it. Goodnight!

Another round?

Look, baby, I'm sorry.|I'm pissed. It was just banter.

- Yeah. I know. But it's not very sexy.|- I'm not trying to be sexy.

Why not? You're not on a promise.

- Deal.|- Will do.

Stick with me,|we'll climb that this time next year.

The Eiger? Yeah, let's do it.|The north face.

It killed 70 people.

If you fall from the summit,|it'll take 30 seconds to hit the ground.

- That's cheery.|- 30 seconds to recall your life,

say your goodbyes,|conscious the whole way down.

Just enough time|to say the Lord's Prayer.

- If you believe that's gonna save you.|- You're really gonna need something.

- It's blowing a bastard out there.|- Yeah, I know.

It's supposed to clear up|through the night, though.

But tomorrow is gonna be tricky.


Fill her up.

- No, you can't mix gin and whisky.|- It's called a gisky.

- Is it?|- I just invented it.
