Sheila and Clive say hi as their video call starts. Clive tells Sheila that Nepal is freezing but beautiful.
SHEILA: You look very distinguished with that beard.
CLIVE: Why thank you. I feel more squished than distinguished, but that's Everest.
Clive says it's very busy up on Everest.
CLIVE: This is like the Waterhole on a Saturday night, only with less oxygen. I am very high in every sense.
Sheila calls him a hippy. She tells Clive that Gary has found religion. She found him doing something on the computer and she thought it was dirty pictures, she almost wishes it was. She tells him Gary's trying to impress another woman by joining a cult. She asks when Clive's coming home. Clive says it will be another week, they've raised money for charity, once they're off the mountain they'll hand over the cheque and take another couple of days to recover. He shows her a bottle of whisky he will also need to recover from, telling her it's strictly medicinal. Sheila tells him about Ned's fight club, and Karl's bike club, she thinks she'll start a club. She tells Clive to keep his voice down as they don't want any more avalanches.
Clive promises he'll be off the mountain soon and he'll shave. Sheila tells him not to, she's just getting used to it. He puts his hand over the side of his face and Sheila tells him off, she hates goatees. She explains there was an Indian man years ago who used to sell curry at the Frankston market who showed her a few yoga positions. They start flirting. He tells her she's being broadcast to the top of the world.
SHEILA:(shouting) I LOVE YOU CLIVE GIBBONS!!
CLIVE:(whispering) I love you too.
They blow kisses at each other.
