David finds Meg in the office and they get onto the subject of Hugh. "That's a sensitive subject because he's your
husband. You weren't to blame, you were just an innocent bystander. Let's let sleeping dogs lie," suggests
David. Meg starts laughing. "That amuses you," says David, a little puzzled. "Sandy thought you
might phrase it, let lying dogs sleep," says Meg and they both laugh. David asks when Hugh will be coming back to the

asks Tish. "Mr Hunter," answers Tish. "No, his first name?" asks Celia. "Well it's David actually," says
Tish. "David Hunter. Um, that has an interesting ring to it. Married I suppose?" asks Celia Warren.
"Well no actually. He was though," says Tish. "That's another thing we have in common," says Celia. "Shall
I get your coffee? For one," asks Tish. "Yes, for the moment," says Celia.
