Jennifer to Brian should be at evens.

How about Alan to anyone? Alan to Clarrie should be in there. I have no idea how likely it is, though, because I am not going to look and see when he is next in the cast.

Ed to Emma, only he’d say ‘it wasn’t your fault’ (or ‘it weren’t your fault’?)

Ruth to Pip.

As the World centres around her she’s bound to find some way she’s responsible.

Who’s going to usr that horrible phrase "don’t beat yourself up "?

When I hear that, I always think: Oh, go on, do, please!

My reaction is more “Can I watch? It must be really difficult to do.”

Or occasionally, “Can I help?”

Too much like hard work, Joe. Let them do it themselves, on the whole.

But if you want to be sure it’s done properly…?

Meanwhile, did anyone have Eddie to Clarrie? I reckon his “Don’t go looking for rhyme or reason” counts

We is twins!

Nope, sorry, it doesn’t. Hope you haven’t already spent the winnings…

Well, Clarrie was definitely on the verge of blaming herself when Eddie stopped her. No skin off my nose, though - I was merely proposing it as the first instance, not claiming the prize.

Soz, joe. But no, we need to hear precisely those hallowed (by frequent repetition at Helen) words. And see proof of ticket purchase, before anyone heads off for a life of idle luxury on the 4s&6d payout.
