INSTRUCTOR: Parker, what do you think you're doing?
STUART: Just helping out.
INSTRUCTOR: Is that your team... well is it?
INSTRUCTOR: Well get back to your own team where you belong...move it. Ladies and Gentlemen what we have just witnessed is a classic example of abandoning your teammates.

The instructor is telling the group he is not impressed but they're all scraped through except for Stu who failed the team test. He dismisses the rest of the group but tells Stuart that it's like it says in his file "you're so keen to suck up to authority figures, you abandon your colleagues just like that. You've resigned from the army, from jobs at the hospital and a garage and don't even get me started on this life mechanics rubbish. In fact if I had have jumped to conclusions I'd say you were a born loser. You'd better lift your game otherwise you'll have something else to add to your long list of failures."
David and Lil are whispering across the office. David says he couldn't just leave Karl sitting there on his own. Karl comes out and asks Lil for prescription pads, she hands them to him with saying a word. Harold comes storming into the office announcing he is next as he has an appointment.

Joe has had to leave town unexpectedly but with bucket loads of elbow grease the next few days are promising to be promising"... "The nest few days are promising to be full of critical. CUT"
Toadie's laughing at her.
SINDI: What did I laugh at you when you were in the middle of a client presentation?
TOADIE: Yes the Robson case. If I remember correctly you found it so amusing you had to leave the room
SINDI: Well, yes but he couldn't pronounce his R's.
TOADIE: Well that didn't help me with WOBSON'S WE WEGISRATION OF WESIDENCY WEQUEST now did it.

"My Darling Lou, If there's one thing I never meant to do is to cause you pain but I've done just that and it breaks my heart. The only way to begin to right these wrongs is to let you begin again without me. Oneday I'll repay you and I'll make you proud of me again. Yours with sorrow and love Trixie"
