QUOTES FROM Gordon Pinsent CHARACTERS

Vera says: Wouldn't be too much, would it, if I asked what in the name of God you're doing in our bed?

Murray French says: Sorry. I know it's after office hours.

Vera says: It's not so much the time that bothers me, as the fact that we're all here in bed together. It's the whole threesome thing I'm not that comfortable with.

Simon says: Now, now, he doesn't drop by that often.
