Yellow Pages

A sketch from A Bit of Fry & Laurie

Charming old man enters bookshop, where Hugh and Stephen serve.

Old Man Good morning. Do you have a copy of Fly Fishing by J.R. Hartley?

Hugh I knew it, I knew it.

Stephen I said this morning.

Hugh Would you believe it, we had a whole shopful of them, and now ... Camera pulls back to reveal an empty shop.

Old Man Well, that's the power of advertising I suppose

Hugh Absolutely. Mind you ...

Stephen We do have 30,000 copies of Yellow Pages, can't shift 'em.

Old Man Ooh. Can I order one?

Hugh Well we've got them here.

Old Man No, no. I have to order them you see.

Stephen Well, yeah. All right then. We can order one for you.

Old Man You can? That's marvellous. My name? Of course ... it's Pages, L.O. Pages.

Hugh I never asked him his name, did you?

Stephen No.

Stephen (Voiceover) Good old L.O. Pages.
