Scene Text

Start: Gerry: You’re looking wonderful Chrissie. Really great. Terrific.
Christina: My hair’s like a whin-bush.
Gerry: Looks lovely to me.

End: Gerry: That’s an idea! Do the two jobs together! Make an absolute fortune. You have the most unbelievable business head, Chrissie. Never met anything like it. What are you laughing at?
