Well, he seems very keen to speak to you.
Well, I'm not keen to speak to him.
We split up over a year ago and two weeks after we split up, he went to Vegas and married a girl he knew for six days, on my fucking birthday.
So, now he's ringing, like, what, I'm going to answer the phone? I don't think so.
Come on, you utter spunk basket.
OK, he has phoned four times in the last hour.
It's clearly affecting your concentration.
Why don't you just answer the phone and ask him to stop calling you? And you can stop hurling insults at my vehicle.

So, thank you for checking in, but really appreciate if you keep your distance.
Comprende? What time are you meeting him? Three o'clock.
Hi, Marcella.
Hey, Linda.
I thought you were Gerardo's pizza.
No, just me, I'm afraid.
I've been waiting over an hour.
Probably give them a call.
I have, twice.
I'm scared if I call him again, someone might wipe his arse on my pizza, or worse.
Is there worse? You're so naive.
They could sprinkle it with dog shit if they wanted, babe.
If they used the cheese grater, I'd barely be able to notice.
OK, then, don't call them.
You've got a lot of mail.
What the hell? Oh, yeah.

Well, I'm going to take that as a compliment.
The chain looks a bit like you're about to do a TED Talk on animation.
It's It's not very you.
What you mean, it's not very me? I love animation.
I love the Simpsons.
Marce, what are you going to say if he says he still has feelings for you? That's not what this is.

And she's a mess.
I'm a mess.
I mean, if you wanted mess, I'm Captain Mess.
I'm the mess that mess makes.
Yeah, I get it, Marcella.
You're a wrestling character.
It's just he married the first mess he met after me.
And I mean, she's got all the things I thought he hated about me, and that's a head fuck.
So, you don't like her.
Well, now she's a real person, isn't she? She's all .
nice, and flawed, and vulnerable.
She's taken away my God-given right to hate her.
That's just indefensible.
You know, cos if she was a nice person, she would have the decency to be a bitch.
All right.
Now, Simon thinks we're friends.
I've had sex with that man over 1,000 times.
It's not normal to be friends with someone you've had sex with over 1,000 times.
Um So, you think the amount of times you have sex with someone affects the chances of friendship after? Of course.
Like, probably the most you can have sex with someone and stay friends is twice.
Three times if you're travelling.
# I've got your picture # That you gave to me # And it's signed with love # Just like it used to be The on All right, you're not going to put me off, so You haven't planned anything, you mad bastard, not one single thing.
Do you even know what this does? No, thatthat's the point.
If I overthink it, I won't go, and I really need to get Simon out of my head.
It's not that big a deal, I'm, uh, just heading off, you know, connect with nature.
Connecting with nature? You called 999 that time a robin came through our kitchen window.
Cos I thought it had rabies! Exactly, you thought a robin had rabies.
Right, will he wasn't right, was he? You were there.
You're not right! OK, you're getting on my nerves now.
Don't leave pissed off.
I'm not leaving pissed off.
I've got thicker skin than that, love.
Yeah, I'm going to bloody Marcella, we're only mucking about.
Oh, yeah? It feels like you're trying to humiliate me, actually.
It feels like I'm trying to do something positive Yeah, carry on, carry on.
Looks like she's having a nice time, to be fair.
SHE SNORES Oh, you again.
What do you want? I've got nothing, mate, look at me.
Two days you've been following me round.
