DCI Jane Tennison: So what do you think?

DI Frank Burkin: About what, sir?

DCI Jane Tennison: My voice suddenly got lower, has it? Maybe my knickers are too tight. Listen, I like to be called Governor or The Boss. I don't like Ma'am - I'm not the bloody Queen. So take your pick.

DI Frank Burkin: Yes Ma'am.

[George is talking about a day out with his mother when he was a child]

George Marlow: Just as we got to the gates. The lads they all saw it... The wind blew her wig off.

Moyra Henson: [begins to laugh] You're kidding me? Blew her wig off? No...

[she bursts into hysterical laughter]

George Marlow: It wasn't funny, Moyra!

Moyra Henson: [laughing] I'm sorry.

George Marlow: Dad ran down the road to try and get it back.

[Moyra continues to laugh]

George Marlow: Mum just stood there. I didn't know she had no hair... Well, Dad tried to help her put it back on, but he got the parting on the wrong...

[Moyra continues to laugh hysterically]

George Marlow: Underneath all that glamour she was... ugly. Like she was someone I never knew.

Moyra Henson: Did all the kids see it?

[George nods]

Moyra Henson: Did she ever mention it again?

[George shakes his head]

Moyra Henson: I've never said anything; it's always been obvious to me, I mean... Just thought it was old age. How long has she been bald then?

George Marlow: Dunno, she never mentions it. Still pretends, always telling me she needs a good shampoo and trim.

Moyra Henson: Just goes to show you - the Rita Hayworth of Warrington was really Yul Brynner in disguise.

[they both slowly burst into laughter]
