(Reprise of the end of ‘Yverdon-les-Bains’)
MARTIN They offered me the job, Arthur. I can start in three months!
ARTHUR: Wow! Skip! That’s absolutely ... just what you wanted! Great!
MARTIN: Yeah, but it’s not great for anyone else, though, is it – you, or Carolyn, or Douglas, if I go and MJN folds.
ARTHUR: Oh, we’ll be all right. We’ll find stuff to do.
MARTIN (hesitantly): Or ... I just might have been joking about getting an offer.
ARTHUR: Oh, right!
(He and Martin chuckle briefly.)
ARTHUR: I don’t get it. Were-were you joking?
(A door opens)
HERC: Ah. They’re in here.
CAROLYN: Martin!
DOUGLAS: Well? How did it go?
MARTIN: I-I-I-I-I was just telling Arthur about it.
ARTHUR: Yeah, but I didn’t completely understand.
CAROLYN: Well, then, tell us! Did you get in?
MARTIN: ... They’re going to let me know.

[Transcriber’s note: For anyone wondering, yes, this reprise must have been re-recorded. Some of the wording is slightly different, and Arthur’s dwagonfwoo lisp is missing.]
