“I got distracted.” You do get distracted easily you know. Your problem is … you lack concentration.

….I don’t know why you won’t make a cartoon about a cat. Do you remember we’d go to the pictures and Smutty would be waiting for us outside the cinema when we came out?

“I don’t remember … I think I was too young. I do remember him liking to sit on the white line in the middle of the road, though.”

“I didn’t think you were particularly fond of cats.”  I don’t know what you’re talking about. We used to have a cat. You remember Smutty, don’t you?
