(Man): 'Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow airport. General opinion started to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. Seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy but it's always there. Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the

Jamie: God, I'm so late.
Kataya: It's just round the corner, you'll make it.
Jamie: You sure you don't mind me going without you?
Kataya: No, really. I'm just feeling so rotten.
Jamie: I love you.
Kataya: I know.
Jamie: I love you even when you're sick and look disgusting.
Kataya: I know. Now, go or you will actually miss it.
Jamie: Right. Did I mention that I love you?
Kataya: Yes, you did. Get out, loser.
[ Scene #4 ]
Daniel: Karen, it's me again. I'm sorry, I literally don't have anybody else to talk to.
Karen: Absolutely. Horrible moment, though. Can I call you back?
Daniel: Of course.
Karen: Doesn't mean I'm not terribly concerned that your wife just died.
Daniel: Understood. Er, bugger off, call me later.
Karen: So what's this big news?
Daisy: We've been given our parts in the nativity play and I'm the lobster.
Karen: The lobster?
Karen: In the nativity play?
Daisy: Yeah. First Lobster.
Karen: There was more than one lobster present at the birth of Jesus?

Jack: Great, Just Judy!

Peter: No surprises?
Mark: No surprises.
Peter: Not like the stag night?
Mark: Unlike the stag night.
Peter: Do you admit the Brazilian prostitutes were a mistake?
Mark: I do.

Mark: That is true. Good luck, kiddo.

Press: Prime Minister, over here!
PM: Thank you.
Annie: Welcome, Prime Minister.
PM: Woh! I must work on my wave. How are you?
Annie: How are you feeling?
PM: Erm... Cool. Powerful.
Annie: Would you like to meet your household staff?
PM: Yes, I would like that very much indeed. Anything to put off actually running the country.
Annie: This is Terence. He's in charge.
Terence: Good morning, sir.
PM: Good morning. Had an uncle called Terence - hated him - I think he was a pervert. But I very much like the look of you.
Annie: This is Pat.
PM: Hello, Pat.
Pat: Good morning, sir. I'm the housekeeper.
PM: Oh, right. I should be a lot easier with me than with the last lot. No nappies, no teenagers, no scary wife.
Annie: And this is Natalie. She's new, like you.
PM: Hello, Natalie.
Natalie: Hello, David. I mean, sir. Shit, I can't believe I've just said that. And now I've gone and said "shit". Twice. I'm so sorry, sir.
PM: It's fine, it’s fine. You could've said "fuck" and we'd have been in real trouble.
Natalie: Thank you, sir. I did have an awful a premonition I was gonna fuck up on my first day. Oh, piss it!
Annie: Right, I'll get my things and then let's fix the country, shall we?
PM: Yeah, I can't see why not.
Pat: It's all right.
Natalie: Did you see what I did?
Pat: Yes, I did.
Natalie: I just went "blurh".
PM: Hello there.
Annie: I'm right over here.
PM: Yeah, I'm in here. OK. Good. Thank you. Ah. Oh, no. That is so inconvenient.

Father: In the presence of God, Peter and Juliet have given their consent and made their marriage vows to each other. They declared their marriage by the giving and receiving of rings. I therefore proclaim that they are husband and wife.

Jamie: Hello! What the hell are you doing here?
Brother: Oh, I just popped over to borrow some old CDs.
Jamie: The lady of the house let you in, did she?
Jamie: Lovely, o-o-obliging girl.
Jamie: Just thought I'd pop back and see if she was better. This is good.
Jamie: Listen, erm, I've been thinking. I think we ought to take Mum out for her birthday on Friday. What do you think? I just feel we've been bad sons this year.
Brother: Okay, Sounds fine. A bit, you know,boring, but fine.
(girl): Hurry up, big boy! I'm naked and I want you at least twice before Jamie gets home.
[ Scene #11 ]
(Juliet): I am so happy to see you!
Colin: Delicious delicacy?
Mark: Er, no, thanks.
Colin: Taste explosion?
Colin: Yeah, a bit dodgy, isn't it? Looks like a dead baby's finger. Oooh. Oh. Tastes like it, too. I'm Colin, by the way.
Colin: What do you do,
Colin: Ever do weddings?
Colin: They should've asked you to do this one.
Colin: God, I wish you hadn't have turned it down.
[ Scene #12 ]
Colin: I've just worked out why I can't find true love.
Tony: Why is that?
Colin: English girls. They're stuck up, you see. And I am primarily attractive to girls, you know, who are cooler, game for a laugh. Like American girls. So I should just go to
Tony: I think it's crap, Colin.
Colin: That's where you're wrong. American girls would dig me with my cute British accent.
Tony: You don't have a cute British accent.
Colin: Yes, I do! I'm going to
Tony: Colin, you're a lonely, ugly arsehole. Accept it.
Colin: Never. I am Colin, God of Sex. I'm just on the wrong continent, that's all.

man: Bit of quiet while we finish the lighting, guys!
Jack: I turn a thought wouldn’t make it. The traffic today was just...
AD: Judy, could you take the top off this time? Lighting and camera need to know when we're gonna see the, erm, nipples and when we're not.
Judy: Yes, OK. Right. At least it's nice and warm in here.
Jack: Not always the case, is it? I was standing in for Brad Pitt once on Seven Years In
Judy: Yes, yeah.
Jack: Bloody freezing...
AD: Sorry, Guys, time's tight and we have to get the actors in.
Jack: I promise I won't look.
(Director): Right, let's have another look at that, please.
AD: And Jerry says, if you could just put your hands on her breasts?
Jack: Oh, right, okay. Is that all right?
Judy: Yes. Yeah-fine.
Jack: I'll warm them up!
AD: And massage them, please.
Jack: Right. It's junction 13 that's just murder, isn't it? Total gridlock this morning.

Daniel: Jo and I had a lot of time to prepare for this moment. Some of her requests, for instance, that I should bring Claudia Schiffer as my date to the funeral, I was confident she expected me to ignore. But others she was pretty damn clear about. When she first mentioned what's about to happen, I said, "Over my dead body." And she said, "No, Daniel, over mine." And as usual, my darling girl... and Sam's darling mum was right. So she's going to say her final farewell to you not through me but, inevitably, ever so coolly, through the immortal genius of the

Sarah: No, l-I just thought I'd ask the blunt question in case it was the right one and you needed someone to talk to about it and no one had ever asked you so you never been able to talk about it even though you might have wanted to
Mark: No. No. No is the answer. Absolutely not.
Sarah: So that's a no, then?
Mark: Yes. Erm...This DJ, what do you reckon? The worst in history?
Sarah: Probably. I think it all hangs on the next song.
DJ: Now here's one for the lovers. That's quite a few of you, I shouldn't be surprised and a half.

Mia: Sarah's waiting for you.
Harry: Oh, yes, of course, erm...Great, er, good, good. How are you doing, Mia? Settling in fine? Learning who to avoid?
Harry: Sarah, switch off your phone and tell me exactly how long it is that you've been working here.
Sarah: Two years, seven months, three days and, I suppose, what, two hours?
Harry: And how long have you been in love with Karl, our enigmatic chief designer?
Sarah: Um... Two years, seven months, three days and, I suppose, an hour and 30 minutes.
Harry: Thought as much.
Sarah: Do you think everybody knows?
Sarah: Do you think Karl knows?
Sarah: Oh, that is... that is bad news.
Harry: Why is it so.. thought that maybe the time had come to do something about it.
Sarah: Like what?
Harry: Invite him out for a drink then after about 20 minutes, casually drop in to the conversation the fact that you'd like to marry him and have lots of sex and babies.
Sarah: You know that?
Harry: Yes. And so does Karl. Think about it, for all our sakes. It's Christmas.
Sarah: Certainly. Excellent. Will do. Thanks, boss.
Karl: Hi, Sarah.
Sarah: Hi, Karl.
Kark: Excuse me.
Sarah: Babe. Absolutely, fire away. Mia, Mia, would you turn that down? What is that?

DJ: That was the Christmas effort from the once great Billy Mack. Oh, dear me, how are the mighty fallen. I can safely put my hand up my arse and say that is the worst record I've heard this century... Oh, and coincidentally, I believe Billy will be a guest on my friend Mike's show in a few minutes' time. Welcome back, Bill.
Mikey: So Billy, welcome back to the airwaves. New Christmas single, cover of Love Is All Around.
Billy: Except we've changed the word "love" to "Christmas".
Mikey: Yes, is that an important message to you, Bill?
Billy: Not really, Mike. Christmas is a time for people with someone they love in their lives.
Mikey: And that's not you?
Billy: That's not me, Michael. When I was young and successful, I was greedy and foolish and now I'm left with no one, wrinkled and alone.
Mikey: Wow. Thanks for that, Bill.
Billy: For what?
Mikey: For actually giving a real answer to a question. It doesn't often happen here at Radio
Billy: Ask me anything, I'll tell you the truth.
Mikey: Best shag you ever had?
Billy: Britney Spears.
Billy: No, only kidding! She was rubbish.
Mikey: OK, here's one. How do you think the new record compares to your old, classic stuff?
Billy: Come on, Mikey, you know as well as I do the record's crap. But wouldn't it be great if number one this Christmas wasn't some smug teenager but an old ex-heroin addict searching for a comeback at any price? Those young popsters come Christmas will be stretched out naked with a cute bird balancing on their balls and I'll be stuck in some dingy flat with me manager Joe, ugliest man in the world, fucking miserable because our fucking gamble didn't pay off. So if you believe in Father Christmas, children, like your Uncle Billy does, buy my festering turd of a record. And particularly enjoy the incredible crassness of the moment we try to squeeze an extra syllable into the fourth line.
Mikey: I think you're referring to "If you really love Christmas..."
Billy: " Come on and let it snow." Ouch.
Mikey: So, here it is one more time, the dark horse for this year's Christmas number one, Christmas Is All Around. Thank you, Billy. After this, the news. Is the new prime minister in trouble already?
[ Scene #18 ]
PM: OK. What's next?
Alex: The President's visit.
PM: Ah, yes, yes. I fear this is going to be a difficult one to play. Alex.
Alex: There's a very strong feeling in the party we mustn't allow ourselves to be bullied from pillar to posts, like the last government.
All: Here, here.
Jeremy: This is our first really important test, let's take a stand.
PM: Right. Right. I understand that but I have decided... not to. Not this time. We will, of course, try to be clever… But, Let's not forget that
Right -now who do you have to screw around here to get a cup of tea and a chocolate biscuit? Right.
[ Scene #19 ]
PM: Yup - come in.
Natalie: These have just come through from the Treasury...
Natalie:.. and these are for you.
PM: Excellent. Thanks a lot.
Natalie: I was hoping you'd win, not that I wouldn't have been nice to the other bloke too. Just always given him the boring biscuits with no chocolate.
PM: Ha! Thanks very much. Thanks... Natalie. Oh God, come on, get a grip. You're the Prime Minister, for God's sake.
[ Scene #20 ]
Jack: So what do you reckon to our new prime minister?
Judy: Oh, I like him. I can't understand why he's not married, though.
Jack: You know the type, he's married to his job. Either that or gay as a picnic basket.
AD: Excuse me, Judy, if you could just lower the nipples and cheat them a bit to the left?
Jack: I have to say, Judy, this is a real pleasure, it's lovely to find someone I can actually chat to.
Judy: Thank you!
Jack: Oh, well, you know.
Judy: And ditto.
Jack: Thank you.

Judy: Ooh, sorry.

Colin: Ja, darling!

Harry: Right, the Christmas party, not my favourite night of the year and your unhappy job to organise.
Mia: Tell me.
Harry: It's basic, really. Find a venue, over-order on the drinks, bulk buy the guacamole and advise the girls to avoid Kevin if they want their breasts unfondled.
Mia: Wives and family and stuff?
Harry: Yes. I mean, not children. But their wives and girlfriends, etc… Oh, Christ, you haven't got some horrible six-foot, tight-T-shirt-wearing boyfriend you’ll be bringing, have you??
Mia: No. I'll just be hanging around the mistletoe, hoping to be kissed.
Harry: Really? Right.

Daniel: He now spends all the time in his room. I mean, he'll be up there now.
Karen: There’s nothing unusual about that My horrid son...
Karen: Bernard. Stays in his room all the time. Thank goodness.
Daniel: No, but Karen, this is all the time. I'm afraid that there's something really wrong, you know? I mean, clearly it's about his mum, but Christ, he might be injecting heroin into his eyeballs for all I know.
Karen: At the age of eleven?
Daniel: Well, maybe not his eyeballs, then. Maybe just his veins.
The problem is his mum always used to talk to him, you know, and... I don't know, this whole stepfather thing seems suddenly to somehow matter like it never did before.
Karen: Listen, it was always going to be a totally shit time. Just be patient. And maybe check the room for needles.
Daniel: And then when he sometimes does come out, it's obvious he's been crying. It was such a ridiculous waste. And if it's now going to ruin Sam's life as well... I just don't know.
Karen: Get a grip. People hate sissies. No one's ever gonna shag you if you cry all the time.
Daniel: Yeah. Absolutely. Helpful.
[ Scene #24 ]
Daniel: So, what's the problem, Samuel? Is it just Mum or is it something else, huh? Maybe school? Are you being bullied? Or is it something worse? Can you give me any clues at all?
Sam: You really want to know?
Daniel: I really want to know.
Sam: Even though you won't be able to do anything to help?
Daniel: Even if that's the case, yeah.
Sam: OK. Well... truth is, actually... I'm in love.
Sam: I know I should be thinking about Mum all the time and I am but the truth is, I'm in love. I was before she died and there's nothing I can do about it.
Daniel: Aren't you a bit young to be in love?
Daniel: Ah, well. OK, well... I'm a little relieved.
Daniel: Because l... thought it'd be something worse.
Sam: Worse than the total agony of being in love?
Daniel: Er... No, you're right. Total agony.

man: I'll deal with it.
PM: Ah. Natalie.
PM: Thanks. Natalie. Erm, I'm starting to feel... uncomfortable about us working in such close proximity every day and me knowing so little about you, it seems elitist and wrong.
Natalie: Well, there's not much to know.
PM: Well, erm, where do you live, for instance?
Natalie: Wandsworth. The dodgy end.
PM: Ah, my sister lives in Wandsworth.
PM: So which exactly is the dodgy end?
Natalie: Right at the end of the high street,
PM: Right, yes, that is dodgy.
PM: Erm, and you live with your husband? Boyfriend? - Three illegitimate but charming children?
Natalie: No. I've just split up with my boyfriend actually, so I'm back with my mum and dad for a while.
PM: Ah. Sorry.
Natalie: No, it's fine. I'm well shot of him. - He said I was getting fat.
PM: I beg your pardon?
Natalie: He said no one'd fancy a girl with thighs the size of tree trunks. Not a nice guy, actually, in the end.
PM: Right... You know, erm... being Prime Minister, I could just have him murdered.
Natalie: Thank you, sir. I'll think about it.
PM: Do. The SAS are absolutely charming. Ruthless, trained killers are just a phone call away. Oh, God. Did you have this kind of problem? Yeah, course you did, you saucy minx.
[ Scene #28 ]
Daniel: So, let's go. We can definitely crack this. Remember, I was a kid once, too. So, come on, it's someone at school. Right?
Daniel: Uh-huh. Good, good. And what does she, he, feel about you?
Sam: SHE doesn't even know my name. And even if she did, she'd despise me. She's the coolest girl in school. And everyone worships her because she's heaven.
Daniel: Good. Good. Well, basically you're fucked, aren't you?

Ant: Hi there and welcome back. So, three weeks till Christmas, looks like the real competition is gonna be Blue.
Billy: I saw them on the show last week. They weren't very nice about my record.
Dec: No. Little scamps.
Billy: But very, very talented musicians.
Ant: Yeah. Billy, I understand you've got a prize for our competition winners.
Billy: Yes, I have, Ant or Dec. It's a personalised felt-tip pen.
Dec: Oh, great.
Billy: It's brilliant. It even writes on glass, so if you've got a framed picture, like, for instance, this one of Blue, you can just write on it.
Dec: Er, a lot of kids watching, Billy.
Billy: Oh, yes.
Billy: Hiya, kids. Here's an important message from your Uncle Bill - don't buy drugs. Become a pop star and they give you them for free.
Dec: And I do believe it's a commercial break. Thanks goodness. We'll see you soon. Bye!

girls: Look at him! Eurh!
Mark: Just a minute. Actually, they're not funny. They're art.
Mark: OK, let's say, er, Thursday, my place.
Peter: Great. …but for now, I've got Juliet on the other line. Can I patch you through? she wants to ask you a favour.
Mark: OK, fine.
Peter: Thanks and, er, be nice.
Mark: I'm always nice.
Peter: 'You know what I mean, Marky, be friendly.'
Mark: I'm always...
Mark: Hi. How was the honeymoon?
Juliet: oh It was great. Thanks for the gorgeous sendoff.
Mark: So, what can I do for you?
Juliet: It's only a tiny favour. I've just tried the wedding video and it's a complete disaster. It's come out all blue and wibbly.'
Mark: I'm sorry.
Juliet: And I remember you filming a lot on the day - and I just wondered if I could look at your stuff.
Mark: Oh no – look - To be honest, I didn't really...
Juliet: Please. All I want is just one shot of me in a wedding dress that isn't bright turquoise.
Mark: Okay , - I'll have a look - but to be honest I'm pretty sure I wiped it, so don't get any hopes up. 'Must go.'

Harry: Any progress with our matchmaking plans?
Sarah: No. I've done fuck-all and never will because he's too good for me.
Harry: How true.
Harry: And of course, your mobile goes.
Sarah: Hello. Hi. How you doing?
Harry: So, how's the Christmas party going?
Mia: Good. Think I've found a venue. Friend of mine works there.
Harry: What's it like?
Mia: Good. Good. It's an art gallery. Full of dark corners for doing dark deeds.
Harry: Oh. Right. Good. Well, I suppose I should take a look at it or something.
Mia: You should.

woman: Bonjour, Monsieur Bennett. Welcome back. And this year you bring a lady guest?

woman: And you stay here till Christmas?

woman: I think she's ten years too young to remember a footballer called Eusebio. And "molto bueno" is Spanish.

woman: And perhaps you can drive her home after her work?

PM: Mr President, welcome.
US Pr: It's a pleasure to meet you.
PM: Come on through. I'm sorry your wife couldn't make it by the way.
US Pr: So is she. Although she would have been kind of lonely, I;m sure…
PM: Yes. Pathetic, isn't it? Just never been able to tie a girl down. I’m not sure politics and dating really go together.
US Pr: Really? I've never found that.
PM: Yes, well, the difference is that you're sickeningly handsome, whereas I look increasingly like my Aunt Mildred. I’m very jealous of your plane, by the way.
US Pr: Thank you. We love that thing. I’ll tell you.
PM: Ah, Natalie. Hi.
US Pr: Morning, ma'am. How's your day so far?
US Pr: Excellent. My goodness, that's a pretty little son of a bitch. Did you see those pipes?
PM: Yes, she's terrific… at her job.
minister1: No, absolutely not. We cannot and will not consult on that either.
Alex: That is unexpected.
US Pr: Well, it shouldn't be. The last administration made it perfectly clear. We are just being consistent with their policies.
Alex: But, with all respect, they were bad policies.
PM: Right, Thanks, Alex. I don't think we're making progress here. Let's, erm... move on, shall we?
PM: Well, now, that was an interesting day.
US Pr: I’m sorry if our line was firm - there's no point tiptoeing around today, and then just disappointing you for four years. I have plans and I plan to see them through.
PM: Absolutely. There is one final thing I think we should look at - very close to my heart. If you could just give me a second.
US Pr: I'll give you anything you ask for. As long as it's not something I don't wanna give.
US Pr: It's great Scotch.
Natalie: I'll, erm... I'll be going, then.

Peter(press): Mr President, has it been a good visit?
US Pr: Very satisfactory indeed. We got what we came for and our special relationship is still very special.
press2: Prime Minister?
PM: I love that word "relationship". Covers all manner of sins, doesn't it? I fear that this has become a bad relationship. A relationship based on the President taking what he wants and casually ignoring all those things that really matter to, erm...
Press: Mr. President!

woman: It's your sister on line four.
PM: All right. Er, yes, I'm very busy and important, how can I help you?
Karen: Have you gone completely insane?
PM: You can't be sensible all the time.
Karen: You can if you're Prime Minister.
PM: It's the Chancellor on the other line.
Karan: It isn't!
PM: I'll call you back.
Karen: No, you won't! The trouble with being the Prime Minister's sister is it puts your life into rather harsh perspective. What did my brother do today? He stood up and fought for his country. And what did I do? I made a papier - mache lobster head.
Harry: What is this we're listening to?
Karen: Joni Mitchell.
Harry: I can't believe you still listen to Joni Mitchell.
Karen: I love her and true love lasts a lifetime. Joni Mitchell is the woman who taught your cold English wife how to feel.
Harry: Did she? Oh, well, that's good, I must write to her sometime and say thanks.

Juliet: Thank God. You would've broken my heart if you'd said ‘yes’.
Mark: Oh right, well, lucky you.
Juliet: Can I come in?
Mark: Er, yeah, well, I'm a bit busy but...
Juliet: I was just passing and I thought we might check that video thing out. I thought I might be able to swap it for some pie, or maybe Munchies?
Mark: Actually, I was serious I don't know where it is. I'll have a poke around tonight, and then…
Juliet: Mark, can I say something?
Juliet: I know you're Peter's best friend and I know you've never particularly warmed to me. Look, don't, don't argue. We've never got… friendly. But I just wanted to say, I hope that can change. I'm nice. I really am. Apart from my terrible taste in pie and... It would be great if we could be friends.
Mark: Absolutely. Absolutely.
Mark: Doesn't mean we'll be able to find the video, though. I had a real search when you first called and couldn't find any trace of it, so...
Juliet: There’s one here that says "Peter and Juliet's Wedding". Do you think we might be on the right track?
Mark: Er, yeah, well... Wow. That-that could be it.
Juliet: Do you mind if l just...?
Mark: I've probably taped over it. Almost everything has episodes of West Wing on it now…
Juliet: Oh, bingo. That's lovely. Well done, you. Oh, that's gorgeous. Thank you so much, Mark, this is exactly what I was hoping for. I look quite pretty. You've stayed rather close, haven’t you… They're all of me.
Mark: Yeah. Yeah... Yes.
Juliet: But... you never talk to me. You always talk to Peter. You don't like me.
Mark: Hope it's useful. Don't show it around too much. It needs a bit of editing. Look, I've got to get to a...Iunch. Early lunch. You can just show yourself out, can't you? It's a...self-preservation thing, you see.

Sam: Whatever. There's this big concert at the end of term and Joanna's in it. And I thought if I was in the band and played absolutely superbly, there’s a chance that she might fall in love with me. What do you think?

Natalie: Erm, this is my mum and my dad and my Uncle Tony and my Auntie Glynne.
PM: Very nice to meet you.
Natalie: And, erm...this is the Prime Minister.
Mom: Yes, we can see that, darling.
Natalie: And erm, unfortunately, we're very late.
Mom: **It's the school Christmas concert, you see, David. And it’s the first time all the local schools have joined together, even St Basil's, which is most…
Natalie: Too much detail, Mum.
Dad: Anyway, how can we help, sir?
PM: Well, I...just needed Natalie... on some state business.
Dad: Right, yes. Of course. Right, er... Well, perhaps you should come on later, Plumpy.
PM: I don't want to make you late for the concert.
Natalie: No, it's nothing, really.
Mom: Keith'll be very disappointed.
Natalie: No, really, it doesn't matter.
Mom: The octopus costume's taken me months. Eight is a lot of legs, David.
PM: Mm. Erm... Listen, why don't I give you a lift and then we can talk about this state business business in the car.
Dad: Lovely, yes.
Mom: Thank you.
Man: Hold tight, everybody.
PM: How far is this place?
Natalie: Just round the corner.
PM: Ah, right. Well, er... I just wanted to say... thank you for the Christmas card.
Natalie: You're welcome. Look, I'm so sorry about that day. I came in and he slinked towards me and there was a fire and he's the President of the United States and nothing happened, I promise. I just felt like such a fool because... I think about you all the time, actually. And I think you're the man that I really...
Kid: We're here.
PM: Oh, wow. That really was just round the corner.
Well, look, l... I think I'd better not come in, you know? The last thing anyone wants is some sleazy politician stealing the kids' thunder.
Natalie: No, please come. It'll be great.
PM: No, I...I better not. But I will be very sorry to drive away from you.
Natalie: Just give me one second…

PM: Ah! Oh, how are you? Hi, guys. Hey, hey, hey. Are you all right?
Karen: What the hell are you doing here?
PM: Well, you know...I…
Karen: I always tell your secretary’s secretary’s secretary these things are going on - but it never occurred to me you'd actually turn up…
PM: Well, I thought it was time I did. I didn't want anyone to see, so I'm gonna hide somewhere. Good luck, Daisy, good luck, Bernie.
Karen: I've never been gladder to see my stupid big brother. Thank you.
PM: All right.
Karen: Oh, now. We haven't been introduced.
PM: Right. Well, this is Gavin.
Karen: Hello, Gavin.
PM: My copper. And this is Natalie, who's my, erm... who's my, erm, catering manager.
Karen: Catering manager. Watch he keeps his hands off you. 20 years ago, you'd have been his type.
Natalie: I'll be very careful. Don't try something, sir, just because it's Christmas.
Karen: No, seriously.
Karen: Come on. Showtime. Quickly. Look, see you after, yeah?
Karen: Thank you, Prime Minister.
PM: It's all right.
Natalie: Come on.

Tell me, if you were in my position, what would you do?
Harry: What position is that?
Karen: Imagine your husband bought a gold necklace and, come Christmas, gave it to somebody else.
Harry: Oh, Karen...
Karen: Would you wait around to find out...
Woman: Good night.
Karen: Night, darling. Happy Christmas. Would you wait around to find out if it's just a necklace or if it's sex and a necklace or if, worst of all, it's a necklace and love? Would you stay? Knowing life would always be a little bit worse? - Or would you cut and run?
Harry: Oh, God. I am so in the wrong. A classic fool.
Karen: Yes, but you've also made a fool out of me. You've made the life I lead foolish, too. Darling. Ooh, darlings! Oh, you were wonderful. My little lobster, you were so... What is that word? Orange. Come on, I've got treats at home. Dad's coming.

Daniel: Even better. Sam, you've got nothing to lose and you'll always regret it if you don't. I never told your mom enough. I should have told her every day because she was perfect every day. You've seen the films, kiddo. It ain't over till it's over.
Sam: OK, Dad. Let's do it. Let's go get the shit kicked out of us by love.
Sam: Just give me one sec.
