Maggie O'Toole: Oh no. It's something else.

Pig Finn: Maggie.

Maggie O'Toole: Finn. Oh no, sorry love, it's still there.

Michael O'Sullivan: Will you excuse me just a minute, will you Jim? I have a bit of an upset tummy coming on.

Jackie O'Shea: Michael O'Sullivan was my great friend. But I don't ever remember telling him that. The words that are spoken at a funeral are spoken too late for the man who is dead. What a wonderful thing it would be to visit your own funeral. To sit at the front and hear what was said, maybe say a few things yourself. Michael and I grew old together. But at times, when we laughed, we grew young. If he was here now, if he could hear what I say, I'd congratulate him on being a great man, and thank him for being a friend.

Annie O'Shea: I have a chicken leg left over.

Jackie O'Shea: Is there a greater twist of fate Annie? To win half a million and the next minute die from the shock of it.

Jackie O'Shea: It's a premonition, Michael. A vision.

Michael O'Sullivan: It's a chicken dinner.

Jackie O'Shea: It's obvious Michael. He wants us to claim the money. Share the chicken dinner. Share the winnings.

Michael O'Sullivan: What a great man he was.

Jackie O'Shea: Yeah, and his spirit's in me head.

Michael O'Sullivan: What'll you do with the ticket?

Jackie O'Shea: Well, he wrote his name in the back Michael. We pretend to be Ned, and we claim the half million.

Michael O'Sullivan: [pretending to be Ned Devine] A big win is it?

Jim Kelly: Ned, you've won six million eight hundred and ninety four thousand, six hundred and twenty pounds. How does that make you feel? Take your time now, there's no rush. It's a great shock to the system I know. Just give yourself a moment to get used to the idea. So what do you think, Ned? Well it was a roll over week. The jackpot wasn't won last week, so they carried it over to this week, and you were the only winner. Were you aware of that, Ned?

Michael O'Sullivan: No.

Narrator: Saturday evening, and the universe is much the same as at any other point in the history of the world. The planets and stars orbit and spin, and do everything that is expected of them. On earth, as the sun sets, millions prepare for a weekly event that is much less predictable. In sixty three countries around the world, dozens of lottery machines spin hundreds of lottery balls. It takes seconds for the winning numbers to be selected... seconds for the losers to realize they've lost. But for the winners, it is an event that will undoubtedly change their lives forever... lucky sods!

Jackie O'Shea: I'm not a great man for telling things the way they are. I mean, I've been known to add a little color to stories and riddles for the benefit of those who will listen. Yet here tonight I can swear that all I've told you is true. The money will be claimed and divided equally between the fifty two of us. Now it was wrong, to think I could claim the money meself. That's not what Ned wants. He wants us to share the winnings. A nest stake for us all. So now if the lotto man comes to the village, you say that Ned Devine is alive and well, and you point your finger to Michael O'Sullivan.

Kitty: Jackie.

Jackie O'Shea: Yes, Kitty?

Kitty: How are we gonna recognise the lotto man when he comes?

Jackie O'Shea: He sneezes.

Kitty: Sneezes?

Jackie O'Shea: Sneezes. He gets hay fever when he's in the country.

Lizzy Quinn: Enough of the sneezing. How much has been won?

Maurice O'Toole: To Ned.
