‘If I’d married someone else I could have had five lovely daughters instead of five sons.’

‘Do you think I should wear a jumper, so they take me more seriously?’

‘How good was that crustless quiche we had at mine?’

‘Mate, you weren’t having a bad trip. You were just having a bad moment in a trip.’
