: 'Ere Grouty, listen to this. Harry Grout
: Listen to what? Fletcher
: You know Robbie Patten who works in the laundry, well 'is wife wanted a divorce so she goes to the solicitor and 'e says "well, you've got to 'ave grounds". "What's grounds" she says. So 'e says "Firstly, there's insanity", well Robbie's a bit of a dipstick, like, but 'e's not certifiable. "Secondly there's desertion", well 'e's in 'ere, 'e can't go nowhere. "Third there's cruelty", well as you know 'e wouldn't hurt a fly "so that leaves adultery", "what's adultery" she says, so 'e tells 'er and she says "ah. I think we've got 'im there. 'E is not the father of my child!".
: Now we need someone reliable as trainer. Fletcher
: Don't look at me. I've grown disenchanted with the game. Twenty years of supporting Orient does that for a man.
: Now then. Fletcher
: Listen Grouty, if it's about the teeth. Harry Grout
: What? Fletcher
: Well, I realise you are entitled to a first refusal. Harry Grout
: Are you referring to Mackay's missing molars? Fletcher
: I'm assuming that's why I was sent for. I mean, nothing gets past you Grouty. Harry Grout
: Oh no. If you've got them it's your tickle.
: I'm Harry Grout. Oakes
: Everyone knows that. Bill Oakes. Harry Grout
: I know your form Oakesy. You've been moved here from Wakefield where you obviously kept your nose clean. Half-way through a twelve stretch for armed robbery, isn't it? Oakes
: That's right. Harry Grout
: Big tickle, that last job of yours. I hope the money's safely stowed away. Oakes
: Someone's been investing it for me. Harry Grout
: Oh, safe as prefabs then. Oakes
: That's why I want out, I wish to unfreeze my assets and take off to the sun. Harry Grout
: I can see why you would. Oakes
: Naturally there will be the appropriate recompense to your good self. Harry Grout
: Yeah, I like the word recompense. Oakes
: I was thinking... Harry Grout
] No. Let me tell you *my* thinking. 5000. Three before, two after. It's only fair the lion's share should come up first. After taking off to the sun, people are often careless about tying up their affairs. Oakes
: Where'd you want it put? Harry Grout
: Hastings and Thanet Building Society. Bexhill branch. Oakes
: And if you don't spring me? Harry Grout
: Then you get your money back. Mind, I keep the interest.
: Oi, Fletcher. Harry Grout
: There'll be something for you in your Christmas stocking, Fletcher. Fletcher
: Oh, thank you sir. I'll look forward to that, sir.
