    • Claire: So you’re not thirteen? Mandy: No. Nathan: (relieved) She isn’t thirteen! Mandy: I’m, I’m eighteen. Claire: That completely blows my story! Nathan: Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant! Claire: Oh, yeah. Really brilliant, lets pretend she’s thirteen! Nathan: Yeah, let’s pretend! Claire: Is this a big joke, isn’t it? Nathan: Yeah it’s great! Claire: Why? Nathan: When she gave me a bl*w job... I thought she was thirteen! (face becomes serious)

    • Reporter: Printing pictures of girls who are thirteen is illegal isn’t it. Jonatton: Would be if they were thirteen. Reporter: Well how old are they? Jonatton: Over eighteen, etc. Reporter: And can you prove that? Jonatton: Have you read it? Reporter: Of course. Jonatton: Even the bit here, that says “our models are six years older than their stated age”?
