The door bell rings. A man dressed as a highwayman goes to open it:-
Al: Stand and deliver!
Monkey: Hello Al.
Al: You’re back.
Monkey: Any chance of a cuppa?
Al: I never got a chance to thank you.
Monkey: What for?
Al: Leggin’ it when I needed a pal.
Monkey: When that TV thing went belly up I just wanted to run boy.
Al: Where’ve you been?
(Monkey has a flashback to when he was attached to someone’s car bumper.)
Al: Monkey. Right you – in. … Delicious PG.
Monkey: Al! It’s a boil wash!
Al: How long are you back for?
Monkey: I’d like to stay a while. If you’ll have me.
Monkey: I thought we could make a fresh start.
Al: Get back into the advertising game. One man and his chimp.
Monkey: Not chimp Al, monkey.
Monkey: What on earth!
Al: I let the big room out to that Carol Dekker from T’Pau.
Monkey: Does she play “the tune” often?
Al: I quite like it, actually.
Monkey: Me too.
