- Pops.

- Great to see you, love.


Right, shall we get you off to bed, then?

You should have given me some warning.

I'd have put the electric blanket on.

- I'm sorry. All right, Da?

- It's freezing up there.

Do you want your PJs?

- Yeah.

- Yeah.

- There you go.

- Thank you.

- You kept it.

- Oh, of course.

It's beautiful.

I'll call your family, let 'em know you're here.

Oh, no, no.

Please don't.

They'll just gossip and worry and...

And I'm gonna be fine,

seriously, so please don't bother anyone.

- Are you sure?

- Yeah.

Do you remember when we bought these on Bond Street?

Yeah, they're my ruby-red slippers.

Primrose Hill.

We had fun, right?

Yeah, we did.

You all right?

I just can't... it's just the gas. I...

Oh, I can't...

Would you burp me, Peter, please?

- Could I have some milk, please?

- Yeah.

You know I love milk.

I'll get you some milk.

Fluffy, floppy puppy.

Fluffy, floppy puppy.

Here, that's my new tenant.

Ah. Fluffy, floppy puppy.

Fluffy, floppy puppy.

Look at her.

Ah, it's like My Fair bleedin' Lady.

- Who is she?

- She's an actress, a famous one, too,

or was.

- What's her name?

- Gloria Grahame.

- Always played the tart.

- Never heard of her.

Big name in black and white films.

- Not doing so well in colour, obviously.

- What makes you say that?

Well, she ain't swanning about Sunset Boulevard now,

is she, Peter, love?

No. She's renting a room in my house and talking a load of bollocks.

Sally saw Sylvester.

I've been on tenterhooks

Ending in dirty looks

Listening to the musak, thinking about this and that

She'll say that's that

I don't wanna chitter-chat.

Turn it down a little bit or turn it down flat

Pump it up when you don't really need it

Pump it up until you can feel it

Mrs Weston's up there.
