So I get Invlted to thls college reunlon.

It was a f*cklng crche.

Everyone married or divorced, pissed.

Crying their eyes out

about their love lives and things.

Someone's got all these

old photographs of us.

I get this one. Have a look.

Maureen Docherty, my first girlfriend.

Little Mo Docherty.

I get this huge pang.

Suddenly it becomes clear.

I still love her.

I'm off my head, which helps, but...

Very lovable.

I ask a few questions, find out

where she is. Someone says London.

Here I am. Going to find her,

phone her up and marry her.

Frankly, I'm not getting any younger, am I?

That simple, is it?

Not really, no.

I jilted her.

Sort of.

She'll be looking forward

to seeing you then.

- Turn that off. It's driving me nuts.

- That's my theme tune, man.

- Did you remember the chloroform?

- What am I?

Let's see it. Come on, let's see it.

Have a whiff of that, bastard.

What the f*ck are you doing?

Pick it up! Jesus!

It rolled under the seat.

You shoved it out of my hand, you twat.

Open your window, will you?

I can feel it. It's your side.

You got it? It's your side.

Cab to Wapping, please.

That guy'll take you in a few minutes.

If you want to take a seat.

Kismet cabs. We do.

Fine, we go there.

Telephone number?

All right, I'll send one round. Bye.

- What is a misogynist?

- You.

I know that, but what does it mean?

A man who hates women.

A misogamist is someone

who hates marriage.

A misanthrope hates everybody else.

And a malcontent is just never happy.

A man who hates women?

I don't hate women.

Who called you that?

Someone call you that?

Yeah.

- The one with the overbite?

- She's just got a big chin.

- The jowly one from Gypsy Hill?

- She ain't jowly, mate.

Funny thing is, there isn't

an equivalent word for misogynist.

There isn't a word

for women who hate men.

Not a specific word like there is for us.

Have you ever heard anyone

say that word?

No.

As if women can't be sexist.

I respect women.

Don't get me wrong, so do I.

Aye, aye.

Furry triangles. 9:00.

No, what did you say?

You didn't?

No, you didn't?

Touch. Listen, I better go.

Bye. See you.

Do we dance or what? It was your idea.

Is it like a tango?

Suzy's phone. It's salsa.

Hello, darling. How are you?

Thursday? Yeah, could do.

Who? Is he?

All right. Listen, I'd better go.

Bye. See you.

Salsa? Don't answer that.

Suzy's phone. Hello, Steve...

Here we go.

- Ray!

- Sorry, man. Where?

Go, man. Go.

Shit! Come on!

You're joking!

Ray! You little prick!

Good style.

Forwards again.

She did actually. She just rang.

Can I ring you back?

I'm on a date.

He does actually.

Switch it off.

Don't do it. Don't answer it, Suzy.

Don't answer it. Don't!

Suzy's phone.

It's Cath, you'll never guess who...

How are you doing? What's going on?

Shit.

Me? No, I'm just watching.

You'll never learn if you don't try.

- It's my neck, you see.

- Sorry.

Mo!

What are you doing later?

Must be someone here

you haven't slept with.

You're right.

I've slept with all three of you.

And you were all fantastic.

Except one.

The problem with the neck is

it directs the main sensory organs.

So you twisted your neck?

Although, having said that, we have less

need for a neck than most other animals.

We live by our hands more than our ears.

On the other hand, our highly developed

stereoscopic vision requires a mobile neck.

Did you know that

the human embryo has gills?

We start out with gills. All of us.

Thanks for the dance.

One, two, three...

So you chucked the band in just like that?

- Will this be all right here?
