Turner:
And, erm, here's the order for tomorrow's consignment. Somewhat larger that I expected: 212 bars.



Henry Holland:
That won't worry me, sir.



Turner:
Dependable to the last. I'm going to miss you, Holland.



Henry Holland:
You're very kind, sir. I shall always have the happiest memories of the dear old bullion office.



Turner:
Has Mr. Applecrumby spoken to you about your holiday?



Henry Holland:
Yes, sir. I'm going to Paris.



Turner:
Paris, hey? You're stepping out, Holland. Wonderful isn't it, what a little extra money will do?



Henry Holland:
Yes, it's going to make a big difference to me.

Oh yeah? How much is it worth?



Pendlebury:
Ten pound, to those who can afford it.



Sidewalk Vendor:
