Would I Lie To You? S4E8
David: “Possession: This is my special travel dressing-gown.”
Lee: True! It’s definitely true. We need to hear no more, David.
David: I’m contractually obliged to finish the card. “It’s the one item I always pack when I go on holiday.”
Lee: Could you, er… first thing’s first, could we have the full modelling of the dressing-gown, please?
Rob: He’s having trouble putting it on.
Lee: Well, he’s not abroad. He’s confused.
David: The cord is missing.
Rob: Just hold it as though it were done up, so we get the proper idea.
Chris: Could you mime smoking a pipe and solve a crime?
David: Oh, I’d love that.
John: Where did you get it from?
and yet my first thought was, “that’s an excellent dressing-gown”.
