“I just found my new all-time-favourite Winston Churchill quotation. Did you ever hear this one, he said: ‘The first quality needed is audacity.'”

TONY
“Nothing to argue with from me.”

PHILIP
“Believe it or not, he said it about painting.”

TONY
“Now that’s why they loved him, you know, because he could say those things like that. That’s how we won the war because of him. But I didn’t know he was a painter.”

PHILIP
“You know, this is our fourth birthday.”

TONY
“You mean the blog?”

PHILIP
“Yup. We’ve made nearly five hundred posts and we’re closing in on 250,000 visitors. Pretty good, eh.”

TONY
“You know, I didn’t expect it to last this long. But I’m glad people like it, that’s for sure. Now all I gotta do is get myself somewhere to live and we can do some other blog. When that’s going to happen, I’ve got no idea.”

PHILIP
“So you want to keep going?”

TONY
“Sure, why not.”

PHILIP
“Me too.”

“Just here at Mabel’s, just last night. They showed up at 3am, got through the window and they went downstairs and they just took the whole safe, just like that.”

PHILIP
“Ouch.”

TONY
“Well I think they’ve got an idea who did it. And you know they’ve still gotta open it first.”

Ain’t no cure
