“It wasn’t my fault the cops turned up.”
“No? So why we sat here?”
“We made bail, didn’t we?”A thoughtful pause.

“What are we going to do now?”
“I don’t know. What d’ya want to do?”
“Haven’t you got any more ideas?”

“That’s ‘cos every idea you have is stupid.”
“Well , you come up with something, then.”

Silence fills the next few moments …

“OK. What day is it?”
“Thursday. What’s that got to do with it?”

“ … nothing?”
“Think again!”
“The benefit check arrives?”

“So, let’s invest it – and get rich.”
“You mean stocks ‘n’ shares ‘n’ stuff like that?”
“See. Now you being stupid. – We want a quick return on the cash.”
“OK, Warren Buffett, how we gonna get rich?”
“We gotta have a plan … “
