‘Your mother tells me you’re going out tonight?’
    ‘Yes, we’re going to see Lady Windermere’s Fan at the Theatre Royal.’
    ‘The man who’s taking you …’
    ‘Brian, yes?’
    ‘What’s he like?”
    ‘Usual, one head, a torso, two arms, two legs, although I’ve not actually seen his legs …’
    ‘That’s not what I meant …’
    ‘Dad, I’m thirty two.’
    ‘Yes, I know but … are his intentions … honourable?’
    ‘I bloody well hope not, otherwise I’ve wasted seventy quid on a revealing, fuchsia, silk top and another fifty on slinky, black pants.’
    ‘You’re surely not going to the theatre in trousers?’
