- Hello.

- Hi, Ange!

- Hello, Beverly.

- Oh, what a lovely dress!

- Thanks.

- Were we meant to wear long?

- No, no, it's just informal.

This is my husband, Tony.

- How do you do? Pleased to meet you.

- How do you do?

He's got a firm handshake, hasn't he? Fantastic.

- Like to come through?

- Mmm.

Angela... Tony.

This is the suite I was telling you about.

- It's nice, isn't it?

- Lovely.

- Drink?

- Yes, please.

- Laurence, would you take Angela's coat?

- Surely.

- Thanks.

- Pleasure.

It's funny, he's a lot bigger than I thought he was.

I've seen him across the road and thought he was

the same size as Laurence, but he's a lot bigger.

- Like a drink?

- Yes, please.

- What would you like?

- Bacardi, please.

- Ice and lemon?

- Please.

- Angela?

- Gin?

- Gin and tonic?

- Please.

- Ice and lemon?

- Yes, please.

Laurence, would you get the drinks?

Tony would like Bacardi with ice and lemon.

Angela would like gin and tonic,

ice and lemon and I'd like a fill up. OK?

- Fine.

- Thanks.

- Like lager, Tony?

- I'm OK with Bacardi, thanks.

No, as a chaser, a bit later.

Laurence is going to get some.

- OK, thank you.

- Or a light ale. Which do you prefer?

- Light ale.

- Light ale? Laurence, get some light ales too.


Ange, it's going to be really nice tonight.

I've invited Sue from Number 9.

- Oh, lovely.

- I thought it would be nice for you to meet her.

Her daughter's having a party. So I said,

"Pop down and spend the evening with us."

That'll be really nice,

'cause I want to meet all the neighbours.

Just say hello, Ange, and break the ice.

That was what was so nice when you came over,

'cause it really made me feel at home.

Yeah, it's funny Ange, as soon as we met

I knew we were gonna get on.

Mmm. Well, we're alike, aren't we?
