NB PC Winsome Winters always refers to his notebook for detail, and is constantly updating it.
SD PC Winters Enters
PC Winters: I have arrived hot foot from the station, Sarge!
WPS Wispy: Foot? Not ‘feet’, Constable?
PC Winters: Oh, yes, ‘feet’ it is, Sarge. Let me just write that down. (there is a slight pause) ‘Feet’.
WPS Wispy: Marvellous. And your reason for running all the way here, Constable?
PC Winters: Ah, let me just consult… my notebook. (there is a slight pause) Feet! No. (Another pause) Ah, yes, here it is. ‘Tell WPS Wispy that Romeo and Juliet are doing the Foxtrot Tango.
WPS Wispy: I see. That’s good. Can you let DC Acey know that Papa’s got a brand new bag.
PC Winters: (writing) Tell DC Acey, ‘Papa’s got a brand new bag.’ Right-o.
SD PC Winters leaves.
WPS Wispy: The boy is a fool, a good-natured fool, but a fool nevertheless.
