Postman: It's for his nibs - postmarked Summerisle. Got a bit of skirt over there, has he?
McTaggart: What him? The only woman he's interested in is the Virgin Mary.
Postman: Oh? I thought he was going steady with Mary Bannock?
McTaggart: Steady's the word. In two years he hasn't so much as tickled her fancy. He's keeping himself pure for the wedding day!
