Eddie: How did you actually catch this fish?

Richie: I didn't actually catch it Eddie, no. I sort of found it. It was floating upside-down on the surface of the water.

Eddie: So it was dead already?

Richie: Well it was on its way out, yes. It was coughing very violently, bringing up this extraordinary green bile. It had this wild panicked look in its eyes, and it was foaming at the gills.

Eddie: Was this in Bluffman's Cove?

Richie: Sort of, sort of. It was in the latrine.

[Cardboard Shark Fins are dragged along the front of the stage]

Richie: Oh Eddie! It's obvious that there is no escape for us that way. We can't go into those murky waters with the creatures of the deep. We'd trip over that bit of wire.

Eddie: Or we'd get a rather nasty paper cut.

Richie: Well, then, I think it's our duty Eddie, as citizens of the world, yes, but above all as Englishmen, with a song in our hearts and a twinkle in our eye and major league tackle in our M & S Y's, to defuse this bomb.

Eddie: Don't you mean it's our duty as lily-livered yellow-trousered shit-your-pants scared-o girlies, who've just discovered they're sharing a very tiny island with a 15-megaton nuclear device, to defuse this bomb?

Eddie: Well, you were the one who sawed the captain in half.

Richie: HE was a volunteer.

Eddie: No, no, HE was trying to stop the show.

Richie: Well anyway, the trick worked brilliantly! We sawed him in half!

Eddie: Yeah, I think the essence of the trick is in the joining back together.

Richie: Details, details. It's in the sawing where the real essence lies, and we accomplished that with panache.

Eddie: No we didn't, we were hacking away at him for hours!
