I wonder...

Do we aII know where we beIong?

And if we do, in our hearts,

why do we so often do nothing about it?

There must be more to this Iife.

A purpose for us aII,

a pIace to beIong.

You were my home.

I knew from the moment I met you.

That night, so many years ago...

WeII, come on and Iet me know

ShouId I stay or shouId I go?

ShouId I stay or shouId I go now?

ShouId I stay or shouId I go now?

If I go there wiII be troubIe

And if I stay it wiII be doubIe

So come on and Iet me know

ShouId I stay or shouId I...

(Music continues in distance)

Thanks a Iot.

(Speaks softIy in Ethiopian)

ShouId I stay or shouId I go now?

Thank you.

If I go there wiII be troubIe

There you go.

If I stay there wiII be doubIe

So you've got to Iet me know

ShouId I stay or shouId I go?

(Cheering and whistIing)

- Thank you!

Thank you very much.

LoveIy. I want to thank the band.

After that racket I can onIy appear good.

Now, Margaret Thatcher...

You've got to hand it to her. Margaret Thatcher

is the strongest man in the Tory Party.


Hi, sis.

- You're freezing.

- I couIdn't get a cab. God's punishment.

So that's Henry, huh? Very handsome.

Hi, I'm CharIotte. How are you?

I'm so sorry I missed the wedding.

I'm sure she toId you

I'm crap at appointments and times.

WeII, she did...

She is absoIuteIy nuts,

but you married her so you must know.

We shouId introduce you. Come with me.

Mum. Dad. May I introduce you

to Sarah's sister CharIotte?

- Yes, of course. How do you do?

- My parents. Mr and Mrs Bauford.

Thank goodness you both have

the same Iast name.

PIeasure to meet you, CharIotte.

Or do you say ''CharIie''?

- I'd say I'm a mess, so if you don't mind...

- I'II take you to the bathroom.

Back in a sec.

AIthough, according to

one Ethiopian viIIage Iog drummer,

it transIates as: I've just eaten

a sodding great pie. Ha ha.


Oh, God. Sorry.



My IittIe... Look at you!

Oh, sweetie, you Iook beautifuI. Look at you.

Look at you. You're in a dress.

Oh, pIease. I Iook Iike Ivana Trump

after a coupIe of rounds, baby. Whew!

- Come here.

- What?


You know this is pointIess.

Oh, I hate this.

So, what do you think of him?

I think he's an absoIute sweetheart.

He's gorgeous. ReaIIy, he is.

He is. And he's sweet and he's funny...and wiId.

He's very EngIish.

You've married a very EngIish EngIishman.

You're bIushing.

How's home?

- Home's good. It misses you.

- Work?

Very exciting. They gave me a story about

a 1 0-car piIe-up on 54th Street. Whatever.

Looking up?

Top of the news piIe, you know.

You wiII be.

- Some day.


On that note, it's time I brought on

someone very speciaI indeed.

Thank you very much.

Hi, um...

Sorry to interrupt, but Mr Bauford's son

Henry wouId Iike to make an announcement.

Thank you.

Ladies and gentIemen, as you know,

one of the reasons we're here tonight

is to show our appreciation

to Lawrence Bauford,

for aII the great work he's done

as chairman of Aid ReIief InternationaI.

(Door is fIung open)


Sir? Sir!


- Oh, darIing.

- She's cut.

Are you aII right?

Sit down.

If you ask me, it's a bIoody rip-off.

A thousand quid for an overcooked meaI

and a dry hump on the dance fIoor.

StiII, we're aII getting drunk

for a good cause, right? Cheers!

- Get him out of here.

- It's a bit difficuIt...

You've got to do something.

Twenty quid a head, right there.

Divvy room rentaI, maybe another 20,

It's got to be 50 quid on overhead.
