Way off-topic. Best exchange in television-
Roy: Julia told me the story.
Jen: So what happened?
Roy: Her parents died in a fire.
Jen: Oh god, I'm sorry. That's horrible.
Roy: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, it was a fire...at Sea Parks.
Moss: Sea Parks?
Jen: With the-
Roy: With the whales and everything, yeah.
Jen: Oh, okay.
Moss: Sea Parks?
Moss: A fire?!?
Roy: That's right. At the sea lion show, apparently.
Jen: Aren't those shows usually out in the open?
Roy: Well, yeah, yeah, that's what I would have...yeah.
Jen: Lots of water everywhere.
Roy: Yeah, I mean, I would imagine the whales would need a lot of water. I don't think you can have whales in a place where there isn't a huge amount of water.
Jen: It just seems like a weird place to go on fire.
Roy: It's a very weird place to go on fire. A fire? At a Sea Parks
? It's the weirdest thing I've ever heard. I mean, maybe, maybe if there were plastic seats maybe they could go on-
Moss: They don't have plastic seats at Sea Parks.
Roy: How do you know?
Moss: Roy, when I was on holiday I lived
at Sea Parks. It's the funnest, wettest, most splish-splashy place in the world!
Roy: Okay. Did you go and see the sea lion show?
Moss: Three times a day for two weeks.
Roy: And did they have plastic-
Moss: No, it's all stone steps.
Roy: Then what went on fire?!? I've checked Wikipedia. There is no mention of a fire at any
Jen: Do you think maybe she's lying?
Roy: No...No, I mean, why would she lie? And if she was going to lie why would she use this one? A fire
? At a Sea Parks
? It's wrecking my head! I mean, if she had said that her parents had drowned I'd be the happiest man in the world. But a fire? At a Sea Parks?
I mean it's just, it just, aww, it just, it opens up a lot of questions.
Jen: Well maybe you could ask her?
Roy: No, no, no, no. We can never
talk about it again.
Jen: Well maybe you could just-
Roy: No, no. No, no, no. We can never talk about it for the rest of our lives.
Jen: Well, then I suppose you're just going to have to try and stop thinking about it.
Moss: That's another great idea. You're on fire, if you'll pardon the expression.
