I'm just It's just that I have to No, not yet.
Oh, hi, Marcella.
Sorry, I was just, um What did I miss? Oh, not much, kiddo.

All the muches.
It's been a big week, Marcella.
I'm on a cleanse.
Dear God! What did you eat? No offence.
None taken.
It's the spray.
It's the flowers over it.
It's the flowers over it! OK.
Let's try and refocus, OK? So .
what have we got planned for the week? Uh, call my agent.
Don't stalk Jon.
Caroline, my flat mate, has won an award for her work so I have to go to that, which will be a fun night You sound a bit despondent about that.
Has Caroline winning this award highlighted for you how far away from your professional objectives you are? Are you feeling resentful? You got the mean mouth, kid.
Just like your ass.
I'm not actually that far away from my professional objectives.
I'm going to see my agent-.
When you were stinking out the toilet I was explaining that, so, it's not that.
That's not why I'm not looking forward to it.
So what is it, then? Good evening.
And thank you very much to the CNB for their kindly invite.
So much sweat.
She was like she was in a Tennessee Williams play.
And this time she's written a speech and it's for a worthy cause and the worse thing is, she doesn't even know she sweats.
It's gonna be awful.
Will you excuse me? Not again? Open the window! Don't send lilies, darling! It's not a funeral! Peonies! Marcella, hello! Hi, Pam.
Thank you so much for seeing me.
I appreciate you're very busy.
Not at all.
Not at all.
What can I do for you, darling? Well, I don't want it to sound like I'm complaining, cos I'm definitely not complaining.
Would you like one? I love a satsuma.
They really are the civilised orange.
Uh, no thanks.
Oranges can be very acidic.
Do continue.
Um, I, er, I guess I'm Well I feel like I'm not getting very many auditions at the moment and I'm working in I'm redundant.
And it's great How old are you now, darling? Me? Yeah.
I will have a satsuma.
What was that? What? Did you say you were 28? No! No, come on! It's probably a bit longer than that, I should think! 28, you old charmer! A bit higher, a bit bigger than that, the age.
I was 28 once, though.
These are so easy to peel.
It's almost like the skin is a size too big.
Can you do Scottish? Yes.
Will you say "orange" in a Scottish accent? Orange.
I have no doubt you are very talented.
You have a big face.
And it bounces.
A big, bouncy face is very good for character stuff.
However, alas, it breaks my heart.
I'm just so busy at the moment, we're not taking on any clients.
Don't take it personally.
This bit is just as awkward for me.
It never gets easier.
You're not joking! You are my agent! I've been signed to you for three years, Pam! OK.
I thought I was being paranoid, but no, you have actually forgotten me! Well, I had a problem with opioids for a few years.
Unbelievable! - Hey, Jon.
Just had a very interesting meeting with my agent you might have found - funny.
Uh I'm really sorry about the other night.
Please, please, please, please call me back.
I just I don't feel very well.
That's a nice dog.
What's her name? Pickle.
You can stroke her, if you like.
Hello, Pickle! Hello! Hello, Pickle! Oh, you're lovely! OK.
All right.

Careful of the snot on her coat.
OK, that's enough.
Sorry! Come on, Pickle.
Bye-bye, Pickle! Bye, Pickle.
Oh, hello, good boy! No.
NO! Pickle.

I don't feel great.
I'm sorry about Tania jumping on your car.
I locked myself out.

The most secure locks available.
They meet or exceed modern British BS3621 standards.
