Pete. I need a drink.

Simon. (From the corridor) Speak the magic words and I shall appear.

Simon storms into the room. He is wet and agitated.

Pete. Hello…

Simon. I assume by your Poundland costume and unsupported shrieks that I’m in the right place.

Pete. Mr Holiday. It’s a pleasure to meet you. I’m a huge fan.

Simon. I don’t think so. Most of my fans would have already poured that drink.

Pete. What will you have?

Simon. Let’s invent something. Take a healthy double from those three bottles on the left. Give them a stir and call it whatever you like.

Pete. Perhaps we can call it a Holiday?

Simon. Don’t make me sick. I’ve already got a headache.
