Gerry Standing: I'm game as the poacher said when they shot him.
Gerry Standing: Now Stanley left the factory for a bit of the other, right?
Jack Halford: Right.
Gerry Standing: But he forgot his mobile phone. So when he gets to his girlfriend's flat he realizes he can't find it, so he dials the number, like you do when you lose your phone. Now the fire started in the kitchen area, and he'd left the gas on. The phone rings, ignites the gas. Well it's like when you turn on a light bulb. When a mobile phone rings, it *can* spark electricity. That's why you get all these notices telling you not to use 'em near petrol pumps and stuff. So the call sparks the phone; the spark ignites the gas. Well, it's obvious, isn't it?
Supt. Sandra Pullman: You clever boy.
Gerry Standing: Well, thank...
Sylvia Ackerman: [protesting outside] A husband and wife should be together for life.
Brian Lane: Well, seeing as how Stanley's an innocent man shall we give him a break and not put forward Gerry's theory? Let him stop inside.
Jack Halford: Be the humane thing to do.
Gerry Standing: I can't handle that for the next two years.
