Suzy is still in the FO office.

SUZY:

I’m just checking whether you put last

night’s lasagne in the fridge.

In the FO office, MICHAEL arrives. He has a small

suitcase and a paper bag. He holds this up.

MICHAEL:

(mouthing)

Croissants!

Back with Malcolm, Toby close by. Malc’s on the phone.

MALCOLM:

No. You're fine to go ahead and print

that. It's lies, you'd be lying, but

go ahead. He did not say

unforeseeable. No he did not. Oh, just

before you go -- when I tell your wife

about you and Angela Heaney at the

Blackpool conference...would email be

better? Or a phone call?

Toby is now next to Malcolm in a lift). Malcolm becomes

aware of him.

TOBY:

No, it’s fine, it’s in the fridge. I

put some clingfilm over it.

In the FO office, Michael switches on some classical

music.

SUZY:

Why did you put clingfilm on it?

TOBY:

To keep it fresh.

Malcolm starts dialling on his phone.

SUZY:

It’s in the fridge, that’ll keep it

fresh.

TOBY:

No, but it still might dry out.

MALCOLM:

(into phone)

YOU FUCKING RELAX!

Michael hands Suzie a croissant.

MICHAEL:

(knowing Toby is on the

other end of the line)

Still slightly warm. That’s how I

like my women as well.

SUZY:

Clingfilm is carcinogenic, Toby.

TOBY:

No it isn’t. That’s a myth. Clingfilm

is perfectly safe.

Malcolm now eyeing Toby with suspicion/contempt -- who

is this dick? Toby tries to smile, lowers his voice,

embarrassed.

They wouldn’t sell clingfilm if it

gave you cancer. Clingfilm doesn’t

give you cancer.
