[at Gareth's funeral]

Matthew: Gareth used to prefer funerals to weddings. He said it was easier to get enthusiastic about a ceremony one had an outside chance of eventually being involved in. In order to prepare this speech, I rang a few people, to get a general picture of how Gareth was regarded by those who met him: 'Fat' seems to have been a word people most connected with him. 'Terribly rude' also rang a lot of bells. So very 'fat' and very 'rude' seems to have been a stranger's viewpoint. On the other hand, some of you have been kind enough to ring me and let me know that you loved him, which I know he would have been thrilled to hear. You remember his fabulous hospitality, his strange experimental cooking: the recipe for "Duck à la Banana" fortunately goes with him to his grave. Most of all, you tell me of his enormous capacity for joy. When joyful, when joyful for highly vocal drunkenness. But I hope joyful is how you will remember him, not stuck in a box in a church. Pick your favourite of his waistcoats and remember him that way. The most splendid, replete, big-hearted, weak-hearted as it turned out, and jolly bugger most of us ever met. As for me, you may ask how I will remember him, what I thought of him. Unfortunately, there I run out of words. Perhaps you will forgive me if I turn from my own feelings to the words of another splendid bugger: W.H. Auden. This is actually what I want to say: "Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone, Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone. Silence the pianos and with muffled drum, Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come. Let the aeroplanes circle, moaning overhead, Scribbling on the sky the message 'He is Dead'. Put crepe bows 'round the white necks of the public doves, Let traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves. He was my North, my South, my East and West, My working week and my Sunday rest; My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song. I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong. The stars are not wanted now; put out every one, Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun; Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood, For nothing now can ever come to any good."

[Charles comes running after Carrie]

Charles: Ehm, look. Sorry, sorry. I just, ehm, well, this is a very stupid question and... , particularly in view of our recent shopping excursion, but I just wondered, by any chance, ehm, eh, I mean obviously not because I guess I've only slept with 9 people, but-but I-I just wondered... ehh. I really feel, ehh, in short, to recap it slightly in a clearer version, eh, the words of David Cassidy in fact, eh, while he was still with the Partridge family, eh, "I think I love you," and eh, I-I just wondered by any chance you wouldn't like to... Eh... Eh... No, no, no of course not... I'm an idiot, he's not... Excellent, excellent, fantastic, eh, I was gonna say lovely to see you, sorry to disturb... Better get on...

Carrie: That was very romantic.

Charles: Well, I thought it over a lot, you know, I wanted to get it just right.

Charles: How do you do, my name is Charles.

Old man: Don't be ridiculous, Charles died 20 years ago!

Charles: Must be a different Charles, I think.

Old man: Are you telling me I don't know my own brother!

Charles: No, no.

Charles: Ladies and gentlemen, l'm sorry to drag you from your desserts. There are just one or two little things I feel I should say, as best man. This is only the second time l've been a best man. I hope I did OK that time. The couple in question are at least still talking to me. Unfortunately, they're not actually talking to each other. The divorce came through a couple of months ago. But l'm assured it had absolutely nothing to do with me. Paula knew Piers had slept with her sister before I mentioned it in the speech. The fact that he'd slept with her mother came as a surprise, but I think was incidental to the nightmare of recrimination and violence that became their two-day marriage. Anyway, enough of that. My job today is to talk about Angus. There are no skeletons in his cupboard. Or so I thought. I'll come on to that in a minute. I would just like to say this. I am, as ever, in bewildered awe of anyone who makes this kind of commitment that Angus and Laura have made today. I know I couldn't do it and I think it's wonderful they can. So, back to Angus and those sheep.

[at second wedding]

Mrs. Beaumont: Are you married?

Fiona: No.

Mrs. Beaumont: Are you a lesbian?

Fiona: Good lord! What makes you ask that?

Mrs. Beaumont: Well, it is one of the possibilites for unmarried girls nowadays, and it's rather more interesting than saying, "Oh dear, never met the right chap," eh?

Fiona: Quite right. Why be dull?

Mrs. Beaumont: Thank you.

[pause]

Fiona: The truth is... well, the truth is, I have met the right person, and he's not in love with me, and until I stop loving him, no one else really has a chance.

Mrs. Beaumont: Oh, what a shame.

Fiona: Yes, isn't it?

[another pause]

Fiona: I was a lesbian once at school, but only for about fifteen minutes. I don't think it counts.

Father Gerald: Let us pray. Father, you have made the bond of marriage a holy mystery, a symbol of Christ's love for his church. Hear our prayers for Bernard and Lydia through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Goat, eh, Ghost. One God, forever and ever, Amen.

Matthew: This is his first time. He's a friend of the family.

Charles: Ahhh, Excellent!

Father Gerald: Bernard and Lydia, I shall now ask if you freely undertake the obligations of marriage. Bernard, repeat after me. I do solemnly declare that I do solemnly declare that I know not of any lawfully impediment...

Bernard: I do solemnly declare that I do solemnly declare that I know not of any lawfully impediment...

Father Gerald: ...why I, Lydia...

Bernard: ...why I, Bernard...

Father Gerald: Whoop, sorry! Why I, Bernard Godfrey St. John Delainey...

Bernard: Why I, Bernard Geoffrey Sinjin Delainey...

Father Gerald: May not be joined in matrimony to Lydia John Herbert.

Bernard: May not be joined in matrimony to Lydia Jane Herbert.

Father Gerald: Lydia, repeat after me. I do solemnly declare that I know not of any lawfully impediment why I, Lydia Jane Herbert...

Lydia: I do solemnly declare that I know not of any lawfully impediment why I, Lydia Jane Herbert...

Father Gerald: May not be Johned in matrimony...

Lydia: May not be *joined* in matrimony...

Father Gerald: to Bernard Geoffrey Siddle... Siddle Delainey.

Lydia: to Bernard Geoffrey *Sinjin* Delainey.

Father Gerald: I call upon those persons here present to witness... that I, Bernard... Delainey...

Bernard: I call upon those persons here present to witness... that I, Bernard Delainey...

Father Gerald: take thee Lydia Jane Herbert... to be my awful wedded wife.

Bernard: take thee Lydia Jane Herbert... to be my *lawful* wedded wife.

Father Gerald: *That's right*... *That's right*. May Almighty God bless you all in the name of the Father, the Son, & the Holy Spigot... *Spirit*.

Congregation: Amen!

Gareth: Bravo! Bravo!

[Everyone cheers]

Tom: Oh, I don't know, Charlie. Unlike you, I never expected "the thunderbolt." I always just hoped that, that I'd meet some nice friendly girl, like the look of her, hope the look of me didn't make her physically sick, then pop the question and, um, settle down and be happy. It worked for my parents. Well, apart from the divorce and all that.

Fiona: Slut.

Charles: Really?

Fiona: Used to work at Vogue. Lives in America now. Only gets out with very glamorous people. Quite out of your league.

Charles: Well, that's a relief. Thanks.

Gareth: I've got a new theory about marriage. Two people are in love, they live together, and then suddenly one day, they run out of conversation.

Charles: Uh-huh.

Gareth: Totally. I mean they can't think of a single thing to say to each other. That's it: panic! Then suddenly it-it occurs to the chap that there is a way out of the deadlock.

Charles: Which is?

Gareth: He'll ask her to marry him.

Charles: Brilliant! Brilliant!

Gareth: Suddenly they've got something to talk about for the rest of their lives.

Charles: Basically you're saying marriage is just a way of getting out of an embarrassing pause in conversation.

Gareth: The definitive icebreaker.

Bernard: How's it going, Lyds?

Lydia: Bloody awful.

Bernard: Oh dear, what's the problem?

Lydia: I was promised sex. Everybody said it. You'll be a bridesmaid, you'll get sex, you'll be fighting 'em off. But not so much as a tongue in sight.

Bernard: Well, I mean, if you fancy anything, I could always...

Lydia: Oh, don't be ridiculous, Bernard. I'm not that desperate.

Charles: Let me ask you one thing. Do you think - after we've dried off, after we've spent lots more time together - you might agree *not* to marry me? And do you think not being married to me might maybe be something you could consider doing for the rest of your life?

Carrie: I do.

Young Bridesmaid: Yes.

Scarlett: What's his name?

Young Bridesmaid: Dolph. He's good at table tennis. What about you?

Scarlett: No. Afraid not.

Young Bridesmaid: Why not?

Scarlett: Don't know. Because most of the blokes I fancy think l'm stupid and pointless - and, so, they just bonk me and then leave me. And the kind of blokes that do fancy me, I think are drips. I can't even be bothered to bonk them. Which does sort of leave me a bit nowhere.

Young Bridesmaid: What's bonking?

Scarlett: Well, it's kind of like table tennis, only with slightly smaller balls.

Tom: When Bernard told me he was getting engaged to Lydia I congratulated him, because all his other girlfriends. had been such complete dogs. May I say we are delighted to have so many of them here this evening. I'm particularly delighted to see Camilla who many of you will probably remember as the first person Bernard asked to marry him. If I remember rightly, she told him to sod off. And lucky for Lydia that she did.

Carrie: Well, the first one, of course, not easily forgotten - was kinda nice. Two - hairy back. Three, four, five. Six was on my birthday in my parents' room.

Charles: Which birthday?

Carrie: Seventeenth.

Charles: We've only reached seventeen?

Carrie: Oh, you know, I grew up in the country. Lots of rolling around in haystacks. Okay, seven. Mmm. Eight, unfortunately, was quite a shock. Nine, against a fence. Very uncomfortable. Don't try it.

Charles: I won't.

Carrie: Ten, oh, was gorgeous. Just heaven, just - oh - he was wonderful.

Charles: I hate him.

Carrie: Eleven, obviously after ten, disappointing. Twelve through seventeen - the university years. Sensitive, caring, intelligent boys. Sexually speaking, a real low patch. Eighteen broke my heart. Years of yearning.

Charles: I'm sorry.

Carrie: Twenty, oh, my God! I can't believe l've reached twenty. Twenty-one, elephant tongue. Twenty-two, kept falling asleep. That was my first year in England.

Charles: I do apologize.

Carrie: Twenty-three and twenty-four together. That was something.

Charles: Seriously?

Carrie: Twenty-seven, oh that was a mistake.

Charles: Suddenly at twenty-seven, you make a mistake?

Carrie: Yes, he kept screaming. It was very off-putting. I nearly gave up on the whole thing. But, Spencer changed my mind. That's twenty-eight. His father, twenty-nine.

Charles: With his father?

Carrie: Thirty, eh! Thirty-one, oh, my God, Thirty-two - was lovely. And then my fiancé, that's thirty-three.

Charles: Wow! So, I came after your fiancé?

Carrie: No, you were thirty-two. So there you go. Less than Madonna, more than Princess Di - I hope. And, how about you? How many have you slept with?

Charles: Maybe we could just - skulk around here for a bit and then - go back down.

Carrie: Now, that's a thought. I don't usually skulk a lot; but, I suppose I could skulk if skulking were required. Do you skulk regularly?

Charles: No. No, I don't normally - think of myself as a skulker but...

Carrie: Well, why don't you come in and skulk for a while - and we'll see?

Carrie: I noticed the bride and groom didn't kiss in the church, which is kind of strange. Where I come from, kissing is very big.

Charles: Is it? Yes. Well, I think you're right. We are probably more reserved. you know, 'You may now kiss the bride' isn't actually in the Book of Common Prayer.

Carrie: I always worry l'll go too far, you know, in the heat of the moment.
