1 Tsk.
It was right here, I know it was.
Can we go? My fingers are frozen.
I just wanted to get you a lovely book from my favorite bookshop.
Excuse me, when did the bookshop close? Oh, a terrible blow to the community.
It really brought us together, though.
We did a round-the-clock vigil.
God, I wish I'd been here.
We all do.
Mum, could we go back to the hotel and watch TV? Yeah, let's go back, get warm.
Oh, I see, you're You're not from here.
Come on, Em.
Let's go.
Dorothy? What is this pink card doing on all my tables? Can you not use our establishment to promote yourself? You're making me sound like a prostitute.
Clearly not a very good one.
- Dorothy.
- It's Dolly.
Why don't you just embrace your birth name? Because I don't like it very much.
But it three syllables.
Three syllables, and you only use two.
Why all the hiding? What are you hiding from? Well, I was trying to get people to come to my show, but you're saying I can't.
Well, sorry for asking you to do your job, Dorothy.
This is gonna be so weird, Em.
Can we please just take the kids somewhere that hasn't changed since I was little? She doesn't work here anymore anyway.
I'm sure she doesn't.

- Hi.
- Hi.
So, you're back.
For Christmas, yeah.
Yeah, it does seem like yesterday since your dad brought you here for mousse au chocolat.
And now, look, you're here with your little ones.
They're dying for mousse au chocolat.
That's why we're here.
I don't like chocolate.
And to see us, I hope.
Dorothy! Shit, why'd you let me come here? - I'll get her.
- No, no, don't worry.
I think it's better not.
We just came for the mousse, and my son doesn't even really like chocolate, so I think it's better if we just should we just Oh, look, here she is.
Et voilà.
Doll and Em.
Gosh, what a surprise.
Is it really? I didn't think you worked here anymore.
Well, that must be a huge relief to find out that absolutely nothing's changed.
Don't be silly, Dorothy.
She's been promoted from kitchens to front of house.
- How are you, Doll? - Yeah, really, really good, thanks.
We just came for the chocolate mousse.
And to show them where my dad used to bring me when I was little.
Yeah, my dad used to bring me here, too.

Edgar thought that Jessica Biel would be better at playing the englishwoman than me.
I'm sorry.
It's good to see you, Doll.
Yeah, you, too.
Do you want Dorothy to get you a table? Oh, God, no.
You know what? It's I think we should just go.
The kids are so tired.
Would it be all right if we took it to go, maybe? Oh, a doggie bag? Tsk, tsk, tsk.
A "foamy latte", perhaps? No, we're fine.

I think we'd better kidnap her, Jen, bring her back before she takes herself even more seriously.
Sorry, was I did you guys have a meeting? Did I interrupt something? No, no, no.
No, I'm not being and I know it's a cliché, and obviously your husband is excluded from this, but they haven't got much irony, have they? Really.
I remember I was at a party in L.
once and someone asked me if I was an actor, and when I said, "yes, but not a very good one" It was as if I'd actually said, "I eat babies.
" I mean, maybe they just agreed with you.
I should go.
This is for you.
It's tiny.
Oh, you're so sweet.
You shouldn't have.

Mind your head, please.
Get on the boat, right to the front.
where the bee sucks, there suck I in a cowslip's bell I lie there I couch when owls do cry on the bat's back I do fly.
For I have lost my daughter.
A daughter? When did you lose your daughter? In this last tempest.
Oh, wonder.
How many goodly creatures are there here.
How beauteous mankind is.
Oh, brave new world that has such people in it.
'Tis new to thee.
Oh, I should be pinched to death! Go, Sirrah, to my cell.
As you look to have my pardon, trim it handsomely.
I will, sir, and seek good grace.
Oh, what a thrice fool am I to take this drunkard for a God and worship this dull fool.
Oh, go to.
Be free, and fare you well.
- Dolly, well done.
- Hey.
And you.
It was good tonight.
- Well done.
- Congratulations.
Nice to meet you, bye.
- Doll, hey, well done.
- You, too.
It was so good.
- You know Noel, right? - Hi.
- Hi.
- What? I wouldn't, um wouldn't take you for a theater goer.
Yeah, he's not.
He missed it.
- Oh, right.
- Yeah, it was really weird, actually.
I got a bit late and they said that I'd missed the ferry.
Is that normal for theater? Well, I don't know.
It's my first play and it's "The Tempest.
" I am supposed to be an Eastern European ferryman from the 70s, so I am a bit confused, too.
- Eastern European? That's amazing.
- Doll? I really wish I'd seen it now.
I can do an eastern European accent.
Yeah, but not like that.
That was really realistic.
- And I was really good - That was so great, Doll.
You were brilliant.
The whole thing was.
I can't tell you.
It was just I had no idea Oh, that's really sweet.
Thank you.
- I got you a present.
It's nothing.
It's silly.
Em, you can't just fix everything all the time.
In fact, sometimes you make it a lot worse.
Look, I'm sorry I made you my assistant, okay? I wasn't trying to fix you.
I just thought I might cheer you up or something.
Turned out to be a complete disaster, not just because you're the worst assistant ever But because I lost my best friend.
I'm gonna go.
Em? You don't have to put yours on now or anything.
Oh, no, it's too big.
No, it's perfect.
We look a lot older now.
Quite a lot older.
Are you getting naked? Wow, they are such cool T-shirts.
Did you get permission from those kids to use their image naked? Well, no, it's us when we were little.
Oh, wow.
We should probably update that image, though.
It's a bit old, a bit '70s.
Maybe we should, uh, you know.
I mean, I'm not a photographer, but I've got quite a good bath.
What I'm saying is we could have a bath together.
Not in a sexual way.
A bit more, you know, fun.
Bubble beards.
Bit of splashing about.
We could do it here.
I've got bubble bath on me.
I could just pour it over you.
Wow, you guys are really into it.
Guys? So, you know, come back to me in about five, yeah? I really did love the play, Doll.
It was amazing.
- Really? - Yes.
It was just what going to the theater should be like.
It was a real adventure, you know? I wish I could do something like that.
- You could.
- No, I'm just Doll? What? Nothing, it's silly.
What? Why don't we do something together? Oh, I don't think it's a good idea.
No, no, I mean as equals.
Be in a play together.
Write a play together.
Just do something ourselves, have an idea and put it on.
We could go and write by the sea somewhere like Virginia Woolf and just write and write and write.
Stay in a lighthouse.
Yeah, oh, my God, that's perfect.
I'll get Lauren to start looking into properties on the coast.
- Who's Lauren? - My new assistant.
