Bill Hooper:
I decided they really piss me off, women.



Roger Miles:
What do you mean?



Bill Hooper:
What? All this relating. Relationships. Inter-relating.



Roger Miles:
That's what they're good at.



Bill Hooper:
Oh, don't get me wrong, I always endorsed all that. I used to argue Feminism against women. I was such a good boy, you know. I even joined the men's group once. God, that was really depressing. Endless whingeing. It's not like the women's group, they enjoy themselves. They used to meet at our flat. I used to hear them haranging one another or roaring with laughter while I was making the bloody tea. I really envied them. I knew at the time they were right to be angry. They were absolutely justified, never disputed that for a moment. All the same, they really pissed me off.

Jane Powell:
[watching a riot on TV] What do you expect if you keep taking people's jobs away?



Mark Varda:
Got nothing to do with it.



Jane Powell:
What do you mean?



Mark Varda:
They don't want jobs. At least not the kind they're qualified to do. So even if we did manage to open all those steel mills and dog biscuit factories, we wouldn't get them to sign on.



Jane Powell:
Are you saying they don't want to work?



Mark Varda:
Oh, I dare say they wouldn't mind being president of IBM or a TV star. Or John McEnroe.

Mark Varda:
Tell me something. Just as a matter of interest. Have you had anything similar in your own life?



Bill Hooper:
What do you mean?



Mark Varda:
Separation. Divorce. A friend losing a child?



Bill Hooper:
Yeah, I suppose so.



Mark Varda:
Thought as much. It's always the way. The crony in the background vicariously working out his anger, or her. It's much more commonly a women.



Bill Hooper:
Is it?



Mark Varda:
Anyway. Hope you're feeling better now.



Bill Hooper:
Tell me something. Does the name shitbum mean anything to you?
