And you're on speakerphone.

Oh. Right, well...

I'm quite busy

with important stuff too...

Bridget, we're waiting for that tape

about Tom, the happy hamster.

- I'll call when I've finished.

- Excellent.

And Richard wants to see you

about that crap skydiving report.

Oh, f*ck.

Oh, dear. Is this the end of my career?

No, it can't be.

I will fight this. I am a journalist of

the highest standards and integrity.

This is Bridget Jones

reporting from a big vat of excrement.

Look, I never said I could skydive

and I'm terrified of heights,

- so it was really hard to concentrate.

- Be quiet. They loved it upstairs.

Loved it. And they want us to come up

with another regular spot for you.

Oh, my God. That's...

- I won't let you down, Richard.

- Precisely. friends'motto was "When in Rome,

do as many Romans as you can. "

of a poof interior designer gone mad...

What is Daniel Cleaver

doing on the television?

It's called The Smooth Guide.

"Making culture bearable".

...equally serene and equally beautiful

Professore Giovana Dabrache.

Who is about to show me her diptych.

Same old creep.

Oh. Shame.

He always speaks very warmly of you.

- Oh, yeah?

- Yeah.

How about we go out

for a bite to eat tonight?

Oh. Can't.

I have to go out with my boyfriend.

- He's a human rights lawyer.

- I know.

I'm meeting him for a romantic supper.


- Bridget Jones.

- Bridget, it's Mark.

Oh. I was just talking about you.

I'm running late.

Do you want me to cancel?

- Oh. No, that's fine.

- Are you sure?

Be as late as you like.

Chuck him, while you're not pregnant
