What's Edward doing nowadays?
Oh, working ... the same thing.
How d'you mean, the same thing?
Oh, working very hard.
You know them quite well?
Of course.
And what did they suggest ... I mean, what can
we do for you?
Oh, nothing. But actually I wondered if you'd
put me up.
Well, I don't know. I mean frankly, I'm a bit doubtful.
About what?
Well. I don't want to be discourteous, or anything ... but after all, you could be anyone ...

Haven't I? No, I suppose I haven't.
