Kim’s Kafé: Kim stands at her counter while Anji has a fag at the doorway, watching the street.

Anji: There’s Kelli and her little boy outside that new House Heaven shop.
Kim: Well I hope she stays outside, eh?
Anji: They’ve got some nice things in there...
Kim: The prices are not so nice. You don’t have to be no genius to see tings cost twice as much in there.
Anji: But it’s all weekly payments. You don’t have to pay for it all at once.
Kim: My mother always said – ‘Credit brings ya Crosses’. That means big problems, ya know.
Anji: You sound just like my husband...
Kim: Sound like you got a good man, there.
Anji: Uhuh – but I’m glad he doesn’t know about my store cards!
Kim: That’ll catch up with you, Anji, mark my words...
Anji: Yes, ’Mother’. You know what my Dev would call you? A Funpire.
Kim: And what’s that when it’s at home?
Anji: A Funpire – someone who sucks all the fun out of life... Like a vampire, get it?
Kim: Oh, very amusing. I think my sides just split.
