Oh, come along, Emily.

Why must we live opposite a decrepit eyesore

we all complain about?

- Very true.

- So, all I need you to do

is to write some letters of support

to the council.

- Drinks on Sunday?

- Ooh, lovely.

- Johnny's back from New York.

- Oh, hurrah.

Bye, darling. Speak later.

Oh, Emily, how are you?

Well, I'm fine. Why?

Well, I just like to know, that's all.

Listen, could you be an absolute star

and come back tonight?

There's something I need to talk about.

Oh, well, I'm sorry,

but I'm having dinner with Philip tonight.

Oh! You can cancel him. He's only your son.

- I'll be sure to send him your love.

- Well, tomorrow night, then.

It would mean a lot to me.


I really don't want to meet anyone

else over one of your dinners.

Emily, listen. Shh.

Charles has been gone for a year now.

I mean, you miss him, I miss him.

We all miss him.

I mean, Rory still doesn't know what to do

without his best friend.

come on, you at least need a good time.

Well, you know me. I just... Mediocre times,

that's about all I can handle right now.

You need to break out of this, Emily.

No, you know what I'm saying?

If you wait too long,

we shrivel up like some imported apricot

sitting on the shelf in Waitrose.

(LAUGHS) Oh, well...

I shall carry that image with me all day.




Hello? Hello? Anyone here?

Oh! Greetings. I'm Leon Rolands.

You must be Donald Horner.

Apologies for the fright. Um...

So this. This deed is a title of ownership

from Brevon International Limited.

And this, of course, is an eviction notice.

Er, right, I mean,

seeing as we, meaning Brevon,

have received no response

from you regarding our orders to vacate,

over the last two months, well...
