"Hello, Mr Regan."
"Excuse George and I barging in like this but we had a whisper you might be up to something.....comprende?"
"Me Mr Regan? You should know better than that. I've been clean since the last election. No flies on me."
"Liam - flies gather to you like hopeless lemmings. Now cough it up. Who's this bloke you've been seen around with?"
"Just a friend, Mr Regan. I'm sorry if the impression of wrongdoing arose. You know my little peccadillos."
"It's your little peccadillos we're concerned about, Liam."
"Give him a break Mr Regan. I'm just a tart with a heart and he represents my only chance of redemption."
"Redemption? You'd need a claw hammer to redeem him. We'll be back. Keep the kettle warm, Jes."
