…The Musings of a Strange Guy


Mrs Richards: I asked for a room with a view!

Basil: [muttering to Manuel] Deaf, mad, and blind…

[He goes to the window and peers through it.]

Basil: Ah, this is the view as far as I can remember, madam… yes, yes, this is it.

Mrs Richards: When I pay for a view, I expect something more interesting than that.

Basil: That is Torquay, madam.

Mrs Richards: Well, it’s not good enough.

Basil: Well, may I ask what you were expecting to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House, perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically—

Mrs Richards: Don’t be silly! I expect to be able to see the sea.

Basil: You can see the sea. It’s over there between the land and the sky.

Mrs Richards: I’d need a telescope to see that.

Basil: Well, may I suggest that you consider moving to a hotel closer to the sea?! [muttering to himself] Or preferably in it.
