Quotes

[first lines]
Eddie: [to Saffy] Why didn't you wake me, sweetie? Well, I'm not going into the office today because Bettina and Max are coming, and I've got to clear the whole house up for them darling. Anyway, did I tell you Bubble's not there anymore, she's gone. I mean, someone offered her a pathetic junior post at 'Marie Claire', so I accepted for her. Let them pay her, darling, while we've got no work on. So, darling, sweet... Sweetie? Honey?
