: Fakes, that's all they are, sitting there staring in their crystal whatsitsnames. Sid
: Balls. W.C.
: I quite agree!
[disguised as a fortune teller Sid is prognosticating on W. C. Boggs and Miss Withering's future

[Miss Withering tests out Mr Boggs' new toilet seat
: Well Miss Withering, how does it feel, comfortable? Hortence Withering
: Yes I think so Mr Boggs. W.C.
: Good, good. Comfort before beauty, that's what I always say. Sid
: It a bit big in the bowl, ain't it? Charles Coote
: It is only 2 centrementres more than our last model and I'm sure we shan't fall out over that. Sid
: Its falling in I'm worried about! W.C.
: No, no! I live your overall design Mr Coote. Charles Coote
: Oh thank you Sir. Hortence Withering
: May I get off now please? W.C.
: Yes of course Mrs Withering, and thank you you have been most patient. Sid
: Yes like Jove on a monument, and what a monument! W.C.

: Do you mind if I try it? W.C.
: No, go ahead.
[Sid gets out his paper and starts moving around from side to side on the new toilet

: Ere... Look at this very slender this pedestle... Isn't it? Charles Coote
: It's streamlined! Sid
: What for, wind resistance? Charles Coote
: In any case the thickness has nothing to do whatsoever with the tensile strength. W.C.
: I hope your right Mr Coote. I have had bitter experience of what happens when one of these collapses, or rather my poor wife had, God rest her soul.
: How about some food? Beattie
: Well I could make you some beans on toast or something? Sid
: No, nothing too elaborate, thank you.
