  1. That is a superb piece of work Jonathan. I want it. Give it to me.

  2. Have you saved up, Bill? (Click image for larger version. It is rather lovely.)

  3. Clear off Robertson. I said it first. And its not about coarse money – its about the appreciation of a fine picture. And I do. So give it to me.

  4. There’s some of mine there, I’ve been told – although I’m not in the catalogue. Probably hidden next to the loo. (shuffles feet, goes red.)
