Dry old conversation, Flo!


Dry old conversation!

Oh, sorry!

We don't get very many visitors!

Hm, would a sherry do?

Any port in the storm...!

Any port in the storm...

I can see right down

your dress, Flo.

God, you've got great tits!

They were big before,

but now they're great

big whoppers of things!

You're just being nice!

No, seriously, Flo.

They're the sort of tits

a man can really lose himself in.

Bury his face and forget

about the troubles of-

What troubles, Harold?

What troubles can a man forget?

Let go, Bubby, let go!

Jesus...! He's mad!

The fucking bastard!

Harold! Harold, it's...

- He was trying to kill me! - He was not!

- You mad, you bastard!

He didn't mean you any harm,

he was just trying to see

whether you breathed or not.


It's not his fault, he's got

some strange ideas.

You can't blame the kid.

He can't help it.

He never had a father.

Nearly killed the

only one he's got.

Christ, kid! You're a weirdo!


Christ, kid. You're a weirdo.

Christ, kid.

You're a weirdo!

You've got lovely skin, Flo.

Soft, and sexy.

You're a sexy woman.

You make it hard

for a red-blooded man

to keep his hands off you.

You have lovely hands, Harold.

Be a pity not to

be using them.

What's that you've found, then?

Don't know.

Don't know what this could be.

It's me dress that's

what you've found.


But what's this,

under the dress?

You have already

had your look at it.

Is it...?

Is it?

You'll have to wait and see!

Gates of Paradise...

One of the seven

wonders of the world!

Do you really think so?


It's not too big?

It's perfection, Flo.

Oh, that's lovely...

Hey, you see...?

Oh yeah, do that again...

Oh, that's nice...

HEY! Get the f*ck out of here!

You pervert!

Give your mother some privacy!
