Clive: “It was nice meeting your ‘friend’ today.  I just wanted to talk about something. Your granddad said the same thing to me when I was about your age…”

Jasmine: “Oh god, is it ‘the talk’? Because it’s a little late for that…”

Clive: “No, no, not that.  Well, maybe that.”


Clive: “There will come a time soon in the future when your mother and I will be retiring. And maybe by then you’ll be settling down too.  One day, you and your kids will be inheriting the place.  Jasmine, do you know what a legacy means…?” 

Jasmine: “Yes, but you’re going to give me the inspirational, parent-child speech stuffed with meaningful tear-jerker anecdotes aren’t you.” 

Clive: “Yes. Yes I am.”  

Jasmine: “Then I’ll need more than sparkling water for this.”
