Geoffrey Tennant: The bow tie is a disaster, the whole thing is a disaster. Andrew McTeague: Well, maybe you should just call the whole thing off then. Geoffrey Tennant: What are you talking about? I already said yes.

    • Geoffrey Tennant: And as for Charles ... well, I imagine that you know all about him and thanks for all that. And as for you, I wanna thank you and I wanna curse you and I have to say goodbye now, Oliver, I love you, I wish you could be here today.

Well, apparently there's some kind of counter-revolution going on but I'm told that Anna has taken up with the leader of the revolutionaries, so ... . Richard? Oh God.

I don't fire friends, I don't! Please! Please ... Anna Conroy: Okay, you're not firing me ... Richard Smith-Jones: Yeah, good. (Anna starts to cry.) Richard Smith-Jones: Oh, Anna, don't cry.
