Come on.


I'm sorry.

I mean, I...

Oh, God...

Is it me? I need to...

I just got a bad go of it from here.

That's all. Your legs

don't open as cleanly from here.

Is this something you really like,

this side-saddle thing?


You feel it's me, don't you?

Hey, honey, I bet Adam and Eve

never did it on their side.

I mean until after

they were thrown out of the Garden.

Or bored, or something.

It's just not a natural...

It's me, isn't it?

Of course it is

or you'd be talking.

We could just start again.


Because I'm still quite hard.


It's completely firmed up down there.


- We could just...

- Please, please be quiet.

- I mean, could you guys be any happier?

- No.

- I mean, it. Look at this.

- No, no. Are you kidding?

No, this is... This place is...

This is heaven. Really, it is.

It's a dream house.

- This is the one, huh?

- Absolutely. No question.

I could see us here 20 years, easy.

Wow. I would love a spot like this.

- Really?

- Hm.

Hm. Interesting.

For the lady of the house.

- I thought we decided...

- It's nothing.

- Is it your birthday?

- No. He just likes to spoil me.

Well, good man.

Oh, honey, a watch.

No, you're not supposed to do that.

It's an antique. It's beautiful.


- It's broken.

- That's OK. It's still very...

It's a bracelet, you see?

I mean, yes, it's stopped.

It's meant to.

It's for show.

You wear it as jewellery.

- Haven't you ever seen that?

- Erm... That's so sweet.

Yeah, I've seen that.

You just wear it.

You have?

- How would you know?

- What do you mean?

- Nothing.

- It's just a token.

- No. What?

- Maybe the person's watch had stopped.


So, er, what's your point?

I'm not trying to be...

Just cos it's not working...

Their motive behind having it on...
