METALLIC VOICES: Go and move that tree
so we can set up the table for the bells.
Get a move on, stupid appearance.
-Miss, I've got my hand up.
-Yes, Tracy Sneddon, I can see that.
The glare from your sovereign rings are practically blinding me. What is it that you want?
Is it true you can't get pregnant if you have sex standing up?
You... You... You... Is this a joke?
-I'm serious, Miss. That's what I heard.
-Who...? Who said...?
Tracy Sneddon, the day you stop looking like you're dressed to turn tricks in a Turkish bordello
is the day I'll answer your so-called serious questions
about se... About...About...standing up.
Miss, sometimes you hear a lot of different stories about it.
You'd think a biology teacher would tell you straight what the facts are.
Yes, well, I suppose I should be... sharing the wisdom of my experience.
Here! That's not what I meant.
Now, to answer your question, Tracy Sneddon, yes.
You can be...
impregnated if you're...
in a position that's...
Right, that's enough! When I say that, I mean...
I don't... It's not erect... I don't mean... There's the bell.
And I must go to another class.
-Miss, this is your class.
-Yes, I've also left... I've left a pie in the oven... That's the phone ringing.
Here, do you mind o' this one?
# Well, hello there and how do you do?
# You're the prettiest lady I've seen
# Well it seems to me that recently You must have been a beauty queen
# We're gonna buy you a drink Do you enjoy champagne?
# Baby, this one's for free
# What's it gonna take For you and those diddies
# To come right home with me?
# No need to wrap them To come back home with me. #
-I love songs about tits, do you?
-Oh, aye, aye...
-What are you daein' up so early?
-If it was any of your business, I'd tell you.
-If you must know, I'm waiting on a letter. ..Anything for me, pal?
Wait a minute...
There's cash-and-carry rubbish and that. It's no' fur you. Aye, three.
Leccy bill and a gas bill.
-That's a bastard when they all come thegither like that.
-Cut! That was great, guys. ..What's your name?
-The script says, Ronald, that you say, "Aye, three."
-Not, "That's a bastard, all thae bills."
-I didn't realise there was a script.
-There is. "Aye, three."
Right. I used to work on the High Road. They never use a script. They walk on, say what they like, then...
-Back to your position.
-Show the second letter, OK?
-Hold it up.
-We're going to go close up on that.
-OK. ..You, er, Johnny Beattie?

And wan o' them's a very, very important letter.
Cut! Can we get another postman?
-What's wrong with that? Is that me sacked?
-No, we'll get you something.
-I was panicking there.
-You can keep that in if you want. Postman sacked - that's a good gag.
-Can we go again?
Hoose for sale. Big question is, is it offers over or a fixed price?
-The one round the corner - offers over 72, went for 92.
-Am I sacked?
-No, I'll get something else for you to do.
This bloody seat's kickin' my starfish in.
-What are you daein' up so early?
-If it was your business, I'd tell you.

-Anything for me, pal?
Here... I recognise this writing. Do you?

-I'll give you that, Alistair. It's some hike.
-At first glance, you might say, "What is there to see here?"
-but like all the rest of Scotland, just underneath the surface, bubbles a fabulous history.
-In 1824, two farmers quarrelled about where one's land ended and the other's began.
-The result was
that they built a makeshift fence, a border if you like, just to separate their territories.
This very fence stands as evidence that the dispute is far from settled.
But hillwalkers can cross the fence, because both the landowners appreciate that it would be silly
-to let their dispute spoil people's enjoyment of this countryside.
-It's common knowledge amongst hillwalkers
to get themselves over the fence by three o'clock,
because then...it's electrified.
Couple of fannies.
