Listen, Elsie, just to relax proceedings,

0:25:440:25:46

It's difficult, isn't it?

You're going to help me out.

Do you know what I mean?

0:26:450:26:47

That's good. That's lovely.

0:26:470:26:49

It looks good. It looks good. Elsie, would you run your fingers

0:26:520:26:55

up and down Bernie's chest, like that?

0:26:550:26:59

Do I do that to Elsie?

0:26:590:27:00

No, you don't, no. No. No.

0:27:000:27:02

And, Elsie, as you are doing that, I want you to say, very romantically,

0:27:020:27:07

"Eeny, meeny, miny, mo".

0:27:070:27:09

LAUGHTER

0:27:090:27:10

Eeny, meeny, miny, mo.

0:27:100:27:13

That's as far as you can go.

0:27:140:27:17

I think you'd better stand up. I can see the agony on his face.

0:27:170:27:21

Can't you be more romantic?

0:27:260:27:28

My underpants are all twisted up. I can't move.

0:27:280:27:30

When you are with a lovely girl like Elsie,

0:27:300:27:32

the first thing you always do is offer the lady a drink.

0:27:320:27:35

We sell a lovely wine here in the bar. It's a lovely wine.

0:27:350:27:37

-It's a mixture between muscatel and hock.

-What's it called?

0:27:370:27:40

Muck.

LAUGHTER

0:27:410:27:44

Elsie...

0:27:460:27:47

-It's up to you, Elsie. You're going to act now.

-Yes.

0:27:480:27:52

I want you to be very romantic and act this bit for me, all right?

0:27:520:27:55

-Put your arms round Bernie's neck.

-Please, Elsie.

0:27:550:27:58

Oh, Elsie.

0:27:580:28:00

And I want you to say, "Bernie..."

0:28:000:28:02

-Yes, Michael?

-No...

0:28:020:28:03

LAUGHTER

0:28:030:28:06

Elsie is going to say this.

0:28:060:28:08

You say, "Bernie, I want what I want when I want it."

0:28:080:28:13

LAUGHTER

0:28:130:28:14

Can you remember that?

0:28:140:28:16

I'll cue you in, all right?

0:28:160:28:18

-Action... Take one!

-Which one shall I take?

0:28:180:28:20

Oh, stop it!

0:28:200:28:21

"I want what I want when I want it." Action!

0:28:210:28:24

I want what I want when I want it.

0:28:240:28:27

-Very good!

-Oh, Elsie! What a move!

0:28:300:28:33

All right?

0:28:340:28:35

Now...

0:28:350:28:37

-Now, you answer her.

-Well, you'll get what I've got when I get it!

0:28:370:28:40

Elsie, thank you very much!

0:28:400:28:43

A kiss for my little partner there. And one for me, Elsie.
