Jack: Knock knock.

Terry Doolittle: Leave me alone.

Jack: I'm sorry. Unavoidably delayed in London. Queen thanks you.

Terry Doolittle: [typing] Frankly, I don't give a shit about the queen. I did give a shit about you however. I sat in that restaurant feeling stupid. And hurt.

Terry Doolittle: [stops typing] I mean, what happened to you? All you had to do was come and say "hi" or "thanks" or something. I mean you just left me sitting there. But no, you sent me to a restaurant with shitty bread sticks.

Jack: Sorry. I still want to to take you to dinner.

Terry Doolittle: [typing] Next time I'm in London, I'll look you up

[first lines]

Male Broadcaster: [click] ... House has issued a series of clarifications of several of the President's statements at his nationally televised news conference last night. In addition to responding to a question about abortion with a three-minute answer about taxes and confusing his Attorney General with his Chief of Staff, the President apparently forgot that Hawaii is a State, referring to it as, "one of our strongest allies in the Pacific." A White House spokesman explained that the President had been thrown off by the intensity of the previous question. And finally, FBI agents have arrested Air Force Sergeant Michael Prescott in connection with a plot to sell weapons secrets to an unnamed foreign government. Prescott was arrested last night in a Staten Island supermarket. Turning to weather, the city remains in the grip of a cold spell. The temperature in Central Park dropped to 36 degrees overnight. The current midtown temperature at 6:59 is a brisk 39 degrees. Next news and weather again at eight o'clock. Now back to the hits on New York's "more music" station.
