Now this imposin' edifice what first meets the eye is the 'ome of Admiral Boom, late of His Majesty's Navy. Likes his house ship-shape, he does. Shipe-shape and Bristol fashion at all times!
ADMIRAL BOOM
Time Gun ready?
MR. BINNACLE
Ready and charged, Sir.
ADMIRAL BOOM
Three minutes and six seconds.
MR. BINNACLE
Aye, aye, sir.
BERT
What he's famous for is punctuality. The whole world takes its time from Greenwich, but Greenwich, they say, takes its time from Admiral Boom. Wotcher, Admiral!
ADMIRAL BOOM
Good afternoon to you, young man. Where are you bound?
BERT
Number 17. Got some parties 'ere in tow what wants to see it.
ADMIRAL BOOM
Enter that in the log.
ADMIRAL BOOM
A word of advice, young man. Storm signals are up at number 17. Bit of heavy weather brewing there.
BERT
Thanks, sir. Keep an eye skinned.
BERT
Here we are, 17 Cherry Tree Lane, home of George Banks Esquire.
BERT
'Ello, 'ello, 'ello. Admiral's right. Heavy weather brewin' at number 17 and no mistake.
