Madge emerges from the room, angry with Lou about being up half the night at the police station.
LOU: Talk about the third degree, she gave me a worse grilling than the police.
MADGE: There wouldn't have been any grilling if you'd told the truth.
LOU: I did tell the truth. They let me go didn't they?
MADGE: Oh they let you go. Obviously you told them something you didn't tell me.
LOU: The truth, that I was a meeting with the bank manager.
MADGE: Rubbish. If you'd been to the bank manager you wouldn't have had to keep it secret in the first place!
DOUG: Yeah Lou, why would you? That's something I don't understand either.
LOU (giving angry looks at Doug): Speaking of grilling, why don't I make us some breakfast, ay?

Lou is tired of Madge giving him the cold shoulder. He explains he was with Norelle, he had to tell her to back off and stop pestering her. So he took Norelle out to lunch to tell her that Madge is the only woman for him.
MADGE: Are you saying that you spent two and a half hours incarcerated in the police station rather than tell me about Norelle?
LOU: I told you you wouldn't believe me.
MADGE: I don't! I can't believe that you'd rather be grilled by the police than face me. Oh you big dope!
