"I don't remember. I should know it if I heard it, though. Perhaps you'll just play me some." She settled ... stool. "We have hundreds of records in stock," Joan pointed out. "It would take ... to play you ... each. Could you hum it to me?" The woman giggled. "I can't sing ... tune. We should get into a worse muddle if I started humming." She looked ... brightened. "I've just remembered something," she said. "It comes from a play. There's a woman who speaks ... but after a time she learns to talk

beautifully." "Would it be from My Fair Lady?" Joan asked. "That's it, dear. I wish you'd thought ... sooner, instead of questions. I suppose you're new to the job."

63. When I saw the bulge at Claud's waistline I asked him what was under there. He pulled ... belly. It was to carry the stuff, he said darkly. I indicated that I understood. When he suggested we go I said I still thought we ought to take the car. He replied that this was too risky; they'd see it parked. I pointed out that it was over three miles up to the wood. Claud agreed but asked if I realized that we could get six months in the clink if they caught us. I protested that he'd never told me that. Claud's response implied that he thought he had. I then announced that I wasn't going. It wasn't worth it. Claud replied quite simply that the walk would do me good

First she said she didn't know, then she said she thought it would. When I asked her why, her answer was that children didn't do any harm. I agreed that perhaps they didn't directly, but indirectly ... She interjected that perhaps I didn't have any children. I said I had three, two boys and a girl. She wanted to know their ages, and I told her: 16, 14, 10. She asked if I liked them and I said I did, most of the time. Her response was that her answer was the same she liked hers most of the time

Will it put you out terribly?" Michael asked. "Yes, it will," Jean replied angrily. "You might have let me know earlier, and I wouldn't have needed to make such elaborate preparations."

6. "I'm going to leave England early next year to take up a job abroad," Margaret said. "Good heavens! Are you really serious?" I asked 7. "Would you please open your suitcase, Madam?" the Customs Officer said. "Well, really! Is that necessary?" said the woman. "Yes, Madam, I'm afraid it is. Would you please open it?" 8. "Why didn't you look where you're going," said the bus driver to the motorist. "What do you mean?" said the motorist. "If you hadn't been driving so fast, I'd have had a chance of stopping in time."
