0:06:010:06:07

OK, how do you get us going on a Monday afternoon?

0:06:070:06:12

Just to clarify, not all my team would be in at that stage

0:06:120:06:16

-because a lot of them are part-time students who come in throughout the day.

-OK, OK.

0:06:160:06:21

Julia, you are the weakest link. Goodbye.

0:06:590:07:02

To be voted off first, I did wonder what I had done to offend everyone else.

-Yeah, well, he has to be.

-He likes to think he is.

-Yes.

0:17:570:18:02

-Does he wear the trousers?

-I try and fit in 'em, but they don't fit.

0:18:020:18:06

You have to keep telling him he's the boss at home?

0:18:060:18:09

-So he makes the big decisions, does he?

-I shove him in the right direction, though.

0:18:090:18:15

-Yes. For example?

-For example...

0:18:150:18:18

He can choose to do the cleaning.

0:18:190:18:22

I don't quite see how that works to his advantage.

0:18:220:18:26

-What happens if he doesn't do the cleaning?

-Monday won't be a good day at work.

0:18:260:18:31

-Why Jonathan?

-The mothballs, I think, that did it.

0:18:310:18:36

-Dave, do you make mothball holders?

-Unfortunately not, Anne, no.

0:18:360:18:40

For seven years, yes.

0:18:490:18:52

-It doesn't pay well enough for you to buy a car?

-I could buy a car.

0:18:520:18:56

But I live quite close to where I work, so I ride my bicycle.

0:18:560:19:00

-Has that got an ashtray?

-No, but I could put one on it.

0:19:000:19:04

-Do you smoke?

-No. I could keep my glasses in it, couldn't I?

-Yes.

0:19:040:19:08

-Why Jonathan?

-Just the mothballs question, really.

0:19:080:19:12

Jonathan, you are the weakest link. Goodbye.

0:19:120:19:15

I think I can leave here with my head held high.

0:19:210:19:25

I only got one question wrong on the day, so I don't think I was the worst player.

0:19:250:19:30

Whoever wins it will be a very worthy winner today.
