Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
...May I ask you where you studied?



One-Round:
...Well, I didn't really study any place, Lady... I just sort of... picked it up.



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
You know, I was so surprised when I heard what you were playing. It brought back something that, really, I'd completely forgotten all about: my 21st birthday party. You see, my father had engaged a string quintet to come in and play in the evening; and while they were playing Boccherini, someone came in and said the old queen had passed away. And everyone went home. And that was the end of my party, all that time ago, in Pembroke.


[Silence]



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
Well, if you'll excuse me, I'll run and make the tea. The kettle *must* be nearly on the boil.


[She leaves]



One-Round:
Who's she talkin' about? Old queen who?

[Harry and Marcus are distracting Mrs. Wilberforce while Louis deals with the Major on the roof]



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
It won't do any harm to tell you now that Major Courtney has gone to the police. They'll be here shortly.


[there is a loud crash from outside]



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
Oh! Whatever is that?



Harry:
I expect something fell off the roof, mum.



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
The roof?



Harry:
Probably a... chimney-pot.



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
A chimney-pot?



Professor Marcus:
See who it is, Harry


[pushes Harry out the door]

Professor Marcus:
You're most kind, and if I may say so, you have a very curious and charming house. Such, um, pretty windows.



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
Oh, thank you,


[pointing to a window]



Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
and I rather favour positions...



Professor Marcus:
[interrupting] I always think the windows are the eyes of a house, and didn't someone say the eyes are the windows of the soul?

One-Round:
[looking blankly at his cello] Are we supposed to make noises with these things? What kind o' noises?



Louis:
Who is she?



Professor Marcus:
Not "noises," One-Round, *music*!



Louis:
I said what does she mean, you...


[Professor Marcus shushes him and turns on the record, dancing a bit to the music]

I wonder if perhaps you'd like some tea, Major Courtney?
