WELCOME TO JUST A MINUTE!
starring TONY HAWKS, SUE PERKINS, WENDY RICHARD and ROSS NOBLE, chaired by NICHOLAS PARSONS (Radio, 11 February 2002)
NICHOLAS PARSONS: Welcome to Just A Minute!
NP: Thank you, thank you, hello, my name is Nicholas Parsons. And as the Minute Waltz fades away once more it is my pleasure not only to welcome our many listeners, not only in this country but throughout the world. But also to welcome to our programme this evening four diverse, diverting personalities who are going to pit their wits, their verbal ingenuity, their creative intelligence against each other, as they try and speak for Just A Minute on a subject that I give them and they will try and do that without hesitation, repetition or deviating from the subject. And we welcome back after a long absence from the show, that formidable player of the game, Wendy Richard. We welcome back also another forceful player of the game, that is Sue Perkins. And we welcome two exciting comic performers. We have that original humorist Ross Noble. And the other equally talented humorist Tony Hawks. Would you please welcome all four of them! Beside me sits Janet Staplehurst who's going to help me keep the score, and she'll blow her whistle when 60 seconds are up. And this particular edition of Just A Minute is coming from the beautiful refurbished King's Theatre in the Southsea area of that great city of Portsmouth.
CHEERS FROM THE AUDIENCE
NP: And as you've just realised we have an enthusiastic Hampshire audience in front of us to cheer us on our way and encourage us. As we start the show with Tony Hawks. Tony the subject is the wild west. Tell us something about the wild west in Just A Minute starting now.
TONY HAWKS: This town aint big enough for the both of us! Might be the kind of thing you would have heard in the wild west. But as the founding fathers set off on the Mayflower, planning a life in the New World, they would have hoped it might have been rather passive. But as they headed further west, settling new territories, it became wilder and more wild as they...
NP: Sue Perkins you've challenged.
SUE PERKINS: Stumbling hesitation, or when he crossed the territories there was hesitation.
NP: I think...
SP: He felt tired...
NP: I think yes he was trying to get away from saying wilder again, so he hesitated in that process. So Sue you have a correct challenge, you get a point for that of course, you take over the subject, the wild west and there are 37 seconds available starting now.
SP: Before the wild west came the tame west. And before then came the very timid west...
NP: Tony Hawks has challenged.
TH: Ah repetition of before.
NP: Before then.
SP: Damn it, you're right!
NP: Tony you've got the subject back, another point for a correct challenge and 33 seconds available, the wild west starting now.
TH: If you've ever been to Bristol on a Friday night, you'll know what the wild west is like. They come flocking out of the pubs, full of beer and whatever they've managed to get inside those establishments. And they throw themselves around the place. But not just in that particular west country town, but it can happen ah drew ah...
NP: Ross Noble you challenged.
ROSS NOBLE: (Trying to mimic Tony's stumble) Ah totiwaaaah!
NP: Within the rules...
NP: ... of Just A Minute, what do you think your challenge is?
RN: It was a kind of hesitation.
NP: Yes a stumble on language, and so we call that hesitation. All right Ross, 15 seconds available, and you start now.
RN: The wild west was a place where cowboys lived. And it was also a place where Indians lived...
NP: And Wendy...
WENDY RICHARD: Two places, I think.
NP: Yes that's right.
RN: It was just rubbish!
TH: Mind you, we were all going to learn a lot about the wild west if you'd carried on, I think!
RN: Yeah! Yeah that's true!
NP: But if you don't play the game all that frequently, you easily slip up. And Wendy you've got in on the wild west, so we're hearing from everybody in the first round, that's good. Eleven seconds available Wendy starting now.
WR: Apart from football, if there's one thing I cannot stand is movies about the wild west! All those butch cowboys running around in their leather chaps chasing...
NP: Whoever is speaking when the whistle goes gains an extra point. On that occasion it was Wendy Richard so at the end of the round they all have a point and Wendy has two. Ah Wendy take the next round, very apt for Portsmouth, the Navy. Sixty seconds as usual starting now.
WR: The Navy, the senior service of this country! They're all absolutely marvellous! And when you see them in their uniforms especially the ones that have the scrambled egg on their shoulders, I think they are so smart! No wonder many a young girl's head is turned by these handsome men you see... in the correct...
NP: I think the image got you carried away!
WR: It did! It did!
NP: You just hesitated there. So Sue you were in first, right...
SP: I was enjoying the reverie though! Ah I saw it in my head and I was going with it. There was a bit of hesitation.
NP: Sue you were the first to challenge and you got in on the navy and a point to you of course. Thirty-nine seconds available starting now.
SP: In The Navy, that famous song done by the famous combo, the Village People...
SP: Not again!
NP: Yes you did it again!
NP: You did it again, Tony you challenged.
TH: Yes repetition of famous.
NP: Famous yes, well done. Thirty-five seconds starting now.
TH: I actually come from a Naval family because my father was in the Merchant navy, a captain indeed. And he used to regale us over the evenings with many a story of how he would come to Portsmouth and enjoy the joys of evening life there. My mother wasn't too keen on some of these! But we did not go into that! The Navy of course is much nicer now than it would have been, say, three or four hundred...
NP: Sue you challenged.
SP: Well just because I felt I ought to! Because it's twice now he's challenged me, and there was a tiny window, a tiny moment when the brain wasn't moving on that might have been hesitation. And please give it to me!
NP: Well Sue, I do have to be fair within the rules of Just A Minute. And as much as your pleading actually...
SP: It's pathetic, isn't it!
NP: No, no, no, no, no, it isn't. It's delightful because the audience laughed and that's what it's all about. Tony, an incorrect challenge, you get a point for that and you have nine seconds to continue on the Navy starting now.
TH: I very much enjoy that famous song, In The Navy...
NP: Ah Ross challenged.
RN: Did he not say that his mother enjoyed listening to the...
NP: That's right.
RN: I think that was repetition.
NP: That's right, yes.
NP: He actually said enjoyed the joys, but ah, that was legitimate, but he did repeat the word enjoy.
RN: Oh aye!
NP: So well listened Ross, you have the subject, you have the Navy, you have six seconds starting now.
RN: Navy blue is one of my favourite colours. It's much better than Army cerise, or the other particular...
RN: It's the Air Force, isn't it! That's the other one! Army, Navy, Air Force. I was thinking of the Sea Scouts!
NP: Army cerise! I think that's a lovely word! Wendy you were in first so you have, oh, clever girl! Only half a second to talk on the Navy starting now.
WR: The Navy, what...
NP: So Wendy Richard speaking as the whistle went gained that extra point, and once again she's moved forward. She's actually just one ahead of Tony Hawks, and then Sue Perkins and Ross Noble equal. Very close! And Sue your turn to begin, the subject, coffee shops. Sixty seconds starting now.
SP: Often at night I wake in a sweat, wondering to myself why are there not more coffee shops in the United Kingdom. There seem to be a huge vacuum in the three shops in my local high street, Starbucks, Costacofee, to name just two, which means you can go just three or four steps and find yourself with a cappuccino or a frappuccino or a mochachino or a decafe filter deluxe...
NP: Tony you challenged.
TH: There were about three or four "or a"s there.
NP: There were three or four ors, yes.
SHOUTS OF "AWWWWWW" FROM THE AUDIENCE
TH: Well normally we let a couple go, but when there are four in a row we step in!
NP: It's all very well you being partisan, but these are the rules of Just A Minute!
TH: It's the tradition!
NP: So Tony a correct challenge, 40 seconds available, you tell us something about coffee shops starting now.
TH: I always order a cup of tea when I go into a coffee shop, because I am something of a rebel figure, and I like to beat the system! But like Sue, I have noticed how many coffee shops there are in this country now and it is disturbing. Although I was reading in a newspaper article not long ago that they are losing money, quite a lot of them. And that's pleasing, isn't it! Anyway I once ordered myself, that's possibly something...
NP: Wendy you've challenged.
WR: Two orders.
NP: You ordered too much.
NP: And that is repetition within the rules of Just A Minute. So Wendy, a correct challenge, another point, and 14 seconds available, coffee shops, starting now.
WR: There are far too many coffee shops about! As a tea drinker, I think there ought to be more parlours for this other beverage, and less of the coffee shop. And the prices they charge! Over a pound for a cafe latte!
NP: So once again Wendy Richard was speaking as the whistle went, gained that extra point for doing so. With others in the round she's moved forward. So you can see if you get in just before the end, and keep going, you increase your lead more rapidly. So Ross, it's your turn to begin, Ross Noble. Oh the subject, diets. Sixty seconds starting now.
RN: A lot of people say that crash diets simply don't work. Well this is nonsense. If you drive a small car into a wall, you will find that when they wire your jaw up, you'll be unable to take in any food! You'd have to be pretty much a determined porker in order to get that stuff through the jaws area, maybe with a small syringe or pipet device. Soup is the best because it is mixed up. The solids tend to smack against the grilling. The Weight Watchers is also an excellent way of going about losing weight. Simply get a sniper to watch from a distance, and then every time you attempt to put a large piece of cake or chocolate into your mouth, the laser sighting will go down on to the sticky confectionery type substance and blow it clean out of the palm of your hand! Once the fingers have been removed, you will also find it very difficult to pick... things out of it...
APPLAUSE FROM THE AUDIENCE
SP: I'm withdrawing!
RN: Damn you Perkins!
SP: I'm withdrawing! I was trigger happy, I'm withdrawing!
NP: The audience round of applause showed how much they appreciated it.
SP: Yes I'm withdrawing my objection.
NP: Ross I have to tell you, which won't endear Sue to this audience. You went for 57 seconds!
LAUGHTER FROM THE AUDIENCE
NP: You not only... this is the agony of the show, he doesn't get any points for that! A point for a correct challenge and three seconds on diets starting now.
SP: Ross you can buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz me Ross!
NP: He has buzzed you!
RN: I already had!
NP: What's your challenge?
RN: What's my challenge? Spite, pure spite!
NP: You could have actually had her for repetition of buzz.
RN: Yes, buzz buzz, that was it!
NP: Sue you got your point where you did challenge and got in, for a second there. And Ross has got it back again, you've got two seconds on diets Ross starting now.
NP: Wendy challenged.
WR: A bit of a hesitation there.
NP: There was no hesitation at all! Well tried, you almost got in on the end of each subject, but not quite Wendy. Another point to Ross, half a second to go, diets Ross starting now.
RN: Diets as I said...
NP: So Ross Noble was speaking as the whistle went and gained that extra point and he deserved points in that round which he got. And including one for speaking as the whistle went. So he's now equal with Wendy Richard in the lead, but they're only two points ahead of our equal seconds, Sue Perkins and Tony Hawks. And Tony your turn to begin and what a delightful subject, the World Service. Tell us something about the World Service in Just A Minute starting now.
TH: A friend of mine, John Sweeney, a journalist for the Observer, was driving through northern Iraq when the radio came on and he heard the dulcet tones of Nicholas Parsons saying "welcome to Just A Minute". Is there nowhere in the world where you are safe from this man? He was reporting on the Kurdish troubles and felt this would not happen to him, and yet he was plummeted into depression by the sound of our esteemed chairman's voice. Fortunately I was speaking next so he cheered up a bit! The World Service, not many people know this, is actually funded by the Foreign Office and not from the license fee of the British Broadcasting Corporation which a lot of people would expect to be the case. But no, it isn't, I'm telling you now. So listen carefully and write...
NP: Ross Noble challenged.
RN: Repetition of isn't.
NP: Isn't yes.
RN: Isn't funded by the BBC, isn't.
NP: Right, well listened...
SHOUTS OF "AWWWW" FROM THE AUDIENCE
NP: What do you mean oh?
RN: Now I know what it feels like to be Sue!
NP: The audience are taking sides already. So correct challenge Ross, you have another point of course, 13 seconds available, the World Service starting now.
RN: I really like the idea of African tribesman getting a small transistor radio and being able to listen to this show. And that's the only way that they can learn English. How fun it would be to move into the village to hear them say "it is nice to greet you..."
NP: Ross Noble was speaking as the whistle went, gained that extra point for doing so. He's moved ahead in the lead. And Wendy's turn to begin. The subject Wendy, laundrettes!
LAUGHTER FROM THE AUDIENCE
NP: I wonder why they thought of laundrettes for Wendy Richard. Anyway Wendy talk on the subject in Just A Minute starting now.
WR: My local laundrette does not have charming friendly person like Pauline to help you with your service washes. Oh no! We have a chap called Jeff...
NP: Ross Noble challenged.
RN: I'm going to go for deviation, because you were very very nasty to Peggy and that's not charming at all!
WR: I've never been nasty to Peggy in the laundrette! She had the cheek the other week to come in and complain...
RN: (laughs, then in Cockney accent) Leave it out! You're bang out of order!
WR: ... about the prices, about the price of the service wash in my laundrette!
NP: Right, I should explain to all our listeners on the World Service! At this present moment, Wendy Richard is referring to Pauline, the character she plays in East Enders...
WR: East Enders goes abroad Nicholas! A lot of people, I get fan mail from all over the world, don't worry!
NP: The Kurdish tribes don't get it!
RN: But I, but I...
NP: It doesn't go to China, does it?
WR: Give it time! Give it time!
NP: Give it time, yes. So Wendy he, you weren't deviating within the rules of Just A Minute. So you keep the subject, another point of course, and you have 50 seconds still to talk about laundrettes starting now.
WR: On one occasion when my own personal washing machine at home broke down, I had to go into the local laundrette. Not one person came to my assistance. I didn't know how to work the machine in there. And I could feel these women...
NP: Ross challenged.
RN: Was that repetition of machine.
NP: It was I'm afraid.
WR: I think it might have been, sorry Ross.
NP: No, don't apologise to him Wendy, because he's happy. He gets the subject, if he wants the subject. Anyway, 33 seconds available Ross, laundrettes starting now.
RN: There's a laundrette just up the road from here which has got one of the most amazing services that I've ever seen. Not only can you wash your clothes, but there is a pool table, right next door to the equipment. They sell, oh they don't...
NP: Tony Hawks you challenged first.
TH: I think that was a hesitation.
NP: There was a hesitation.
RN: Yes the reason I hesitated was that I thought how many people on the World Service are going to know about the local laundries?
NP: Tony you have laundrettes, and you have 19 seconds starting now.
TH: In America I understand that they have singles laundrettes where they've worked out this is a good place to meet people. But the sight of somebody's spoiled underwear going round and round...
NP: Sue challenged.
SP: Repetition of round.
TH: And I said spoiled instead of soiled.
NP: I know! I noticed it! Nobody picked you up on it.
TH: What's the difference?
WR: You were obviously using the wrong washing powder!
NP: And I suppose it depends how soiled they are. If they're so soiled they become spoiled.
WR: Nicholas, don't let's go down that road!
TH: Spoiled underwear is underwear you take out to dinner, always let it have its own way, give it everything it wants...
NP: Right so Sue you had a, you were the first to challenge, correct and er eight seconds on laundrettes starting now.
SP: I'm a big fan of Tony's idea of a singles laundrette where one turns up late at night to meet a significant other whilst the tumble drier goes round and about and...
NP: So Sue Perkins was then speaking as the whistle went and gained that extra point. The situation now is very close. Ross Noble's just in the lead, followed by Wendy Richard, one ahead of Sue Perkins, one ahead of Tony Hawks in that order. Sue it's your turn to begin. The subject is the content of my pockets. I don't know if you have any pockets but tell us something about that subject in this game starting now.
SP: For those listening on the World Service, I'm not actually wearing trousers. Instead I've opted, in this rather hot environment, for a thin cammasol, some fishnets and some unfeasibly high kittenmules. I don't wear spectacles. In fact the long tresses of my blonde hair flow down my enormous curvaceous figure, 36, 24...
SP: Don't interrupt me! I'm pl... I'm enjoying the moment!
NP: You've challenged?
SP: I was just explaining I don't have pockets!
NP: No but it was good fun within Just A Minute, wasn't it. But deviation yes because her description was contrary to what part of...
SP: How dare you!
NP: The blonde tresses do not coincide with that delightful dark black hair that you have um...
SP: As opposed to my light black hair?
WR: That's rubbish, dark black hair, how can you have light black?
SP: You're saying...
NP: You do have light black hair.
SP: Black is black!
NP: You can have light black or dark black, I mean the Highland people of Scotland have very jet black hair and it's referred to as jet black, that's very dark. You can have a less dark...
WR: She hasn't got jet black hair, she's got brown hair! He's got, his hair's nearer black than hers!
SP: She's got brown hair, the man there has got white hair...
RN: There will now be a short interval!
NP: There's no point, and they'e fighting! Ross Noble has jet black hair for our listeners who want to have a visual image of the people here...
RN: Mine's actually brown hair dyed! So in many ways I've got light black hair.
NP: I didn't want to bring your, your personal secrets into this, but er Sue's in utterly natural and it's a light black or a dark brown. I don't mind, it doesn't really matter within Just A Minute. So who challenged?
TH: I did about an hour and a half ago!
SP: I was trying to get to a point!
NP: Deviation yes yes, the description was not accurate. Forty-two seconds for you Tony on the content of my pockets starting now.
TH: The content of my pockets depends on how I'm going to spend the day. And today I was coming to Portsmouth so naturally I filled it full...
WR: We had two days didn't we?
NP: Well he said today and then he said day.
WR: I wasn't sure, is today one word or two?
NP: No, it's a hyphenated word but it's become, I think it's become one word.
TH: Today is one word. There's no hyphen in it. I'll spell it for you.
NP: There used to be...
WR: In that case, I beg your pardon.
NP: No, in my youth it was hyphenated, probably, I don't know...
TH: Well we can't go back that far!
NP: So now it is joined up and today and day are different words Wendy. So well tried...
RN: It's very hard to hyphenate something on a stone tablet as well!
LAUGHTER FROM THE AUDIENCE
NP: That got the indifferent response it deserved! Tony, an incorrect challenge, 33 seconds available, the contents of my pockets starting now.
TH: I tend to carry hair dye depending on whether I want dark black or jet hair. And on this occasion...
NP: Ross challenged.
WR: Two hairs.
NP: No he didn't get to the word hair actually.
WR: He did.
NP: Did he?
WR: Depending on what hair you want...
NP: Oh yes right, well listened Wendy, well listened.
NP: Twenty-five seconds, the content of my pockets starting now.
WR: I have very little in my pockets, because otherwise I find that you just fill 'em all up with rubbish. Sort of cigarette packets, lighters, rolled up kleenex, dog biscuits, depending if one is going to take one's favourite pet for a walk. It all depends also on what...
NP: Tony challenged.
TH: Ah repetition of depends.
WR: And struggling like mad, Tony! I thought you'd never press that buzzer!
NP: Right, a tough subject then, Tony, correct challenge, another point, the content of my pockets, six seconds starting now.
TH: Full of money because I'm coming to Portsmouth and I want to go to the laundrette where they have...
NP: Ross challenged.
RN: I think he said full before.
NP: Yes he did say full before.
NP: Of all kinds of things. Right at the beginning when you started Tony. Well listened. Oh there's a buzz going around the audience. Oh they're getting aggressive. Right so three seconds are available for you Ross on the content of my pockets starting now.
RN: I have fluff in my pockets, that's right, Alan Freeman...
NP: So Ross Noble is pushing further ahead, another point for speaking as the whistle went. He's slightly increased his lead over Wendy Richard and Tony Hawks equal in second place, followed closely by Sue Perkins. So it's still quite a close contest as we move into the final round. And Tony your turn to begin. The subject, toffee. Tell us something about toffee in Just A Minute starting now.
TH: I'm not exactly sure how you make toffee. But I imagine if you took some butter, water and something else...
NP: Ross challenged.
RN: Yeah well he just doesn't know, does he! And not only that, you can't just imagine it! You can't! I'm no cook but you can't sit there and go "oh imagine that, oh, I've got coffee".
NP: In Just A Minute, if a subject is suddenly thrown at you, whether you know about it or not, you have to try and continue to speak on it. And he can admit his ignorance on the subject and still keep going.
RN: I guess so.
NP: So within that context, he wasn't actually deviating.
RN: Okay but within the context that I want, he was!
NP: We enjoyed the interruption but it wasn't a correct one. Tony another point to you, 51 seconds, toffee starting now.
TH: I wonder if any of this lovely audience in Portsmouth have done what I once did, biting in to a toffee, expecting it to be soft, only to find it was very hard indeed. My teeth hurt quite a lot after that incident. I'm going to work that into a magnificent anecdote...
NP: Ross you challenged.
RN: He was already starting to hesitate, deviate, all at once!
NP: So what do you want, your challenge?
SP: You're predicting!
RN: Yeah! I'm working in the future.
SP: You're like a Just A Minute soothsayer!
NP: You can't have psychic challenges.
RN: Okay sorry.
TH: I think that Ross has got something... just because he knows how to make toffee, he wants to get in!
NP: So give me, give me...
RN: Sorry I thought it was a bit of hesitation.
NP: There was a bit of hesitation. So the benefit of the doubt goes to Ross on this one. He has 33 seconds on toffee starting now.
RN: I am an expert on making toffee. My father was a master toffee maker. And as a child he taught me the ways of that particular profession. He gave me a tiny toffee hammer, and I felt like Thor the Norse God but not quite as powerful because it was much more confectionery based which was a little bit sad, it has to be said. If you take condensed milk and leave it on top of...
NP: Ah Tony challenged.
TH: He's going to give the wrong recipe!
LOUD LAUGHTER FROM THE AUDIENCE
NP: So what is your actual challenge?
TH: Um frustration!
NP: The thing is that he could give the wrong recipe...
WR: But then it would be deviation because he's not talking about toffee.
RN: I didn't give the wrong recipe yet though.
WR: You were going to give the recipe for fudge!
SP: He was giving the recipe for some sorts of Norse Gods playing with some enormous...
NP: Please, he can give the wrong recipe, and not know anything about it. He can give the wrong recipe but still talk on the subject of toffee and you can say at the end that was...
WR: He can't! He's talking about making fudge, as soon as he said condensed milk, we knew...
NP: All right!
RN: You didn't, you didn't let me...
NP: I try to be fair, I try to show the wisdom of Solomon here...
WR: I know how to make toffee!
SP: So do I! No-one's ever asked me!
NP: But you've got to challenge correctly to get it...
TH: Sue, you and I let's go for a drink after the show, you tell me how to do it...
WR: I know too!
TH: ... because I'm not having his recipe!
RN: I'm just...
SP: Can I just say you haven't even mentioned the thermometer that is absolutely essential in making toffee!
RN: I'm going to give you a bit of wisdom on the toffee making...
NP: But you haven't got the subject because last time I did give the benefit of the doubt to you Ross...
RN: It's just as well to be honest with you!
NP: Nine seconds Tony on toffee starting now.
TH: I don't think Ross's Dad was a master...
NP: Ah wait a minute, Ross challenged.
RN: Deviation, he was!
NP: How can we know? How can we know that? That, occasionally, I do have an impossible decision. So because I don't know if his Dad was a toffee er...
TH: Yes but Nicholas I said I don't think his Dad was a, so really it is irrelevant whether he was or not.
NP: That's very true, yes.
TH: And his Dad wasn't a master toffee maker!
RN: You take that back!
LAUGHTER FROM THE AUDIENCE
TH: I withdraw that, that was underhand and unfair.
NP: That's right. So you've got another point...
NP: And you have seven seconds on toffee starting now.
TH: My mother was a mistress toffee maker! And she used to go out many times in the er...
NP: Oh Sue, Sue you challenged just before the whistle.
SP: Just hesitation.
NP: No there wasn't actually.
WR: He was hesitating!
SP: It was, thank you Wendy!
RN: I thought it was as well.
SP: There was a stumble. You can ooh and ah, but I'm last and I've got to do whatever it takes to get a point! I'm working with nothing here!
NP: Sue you've got the audience on your side and now you are going to have the benefit of the doubt and so you have half, no, one second on toffee starting now.
SP: Surrounded as I am by...
NP: So Sue Perkins speaking as the whistle went gained that extra point. And the final situation is that Sue Perkins who hasn't been with us for quite a while, but came back with a flourish and a charm and a different appearance...
SP: And I'm in last place Nicholas! And there's no nice way to put that! But I do appreciate the time and trouble you're taking to do so! Thanks!
NP: I don't think you must feel like that Sue, because you're only just one point behind Wendy Richard who was in third place. And she was only two points behind Tony Hawks who was in second place. But three or four points ahead of them was Ross Noble, so we say Ross, this week you are our winner! It only remains for me to say thank you to our four fine and exciting and delightful players of the game, Tony Hawks, Wendy Richard, Sue Perkins and Ross Noble. And I thank Janet Staplehurst for helping with the score, blowing her whistle so well. We thank our producer director that is Claire Jones. We are indebted to Ian Messiter who created this game which we enjoy playing. And we are very grateful to our lovely audience here in the King's Theatre in the Southsea who have encouraged us in our antics magnificently! From our audience here in Southsea, from me Nicholas Parsons, and our panel, good-bye, tune in the next time we play Just A Minute!
