‚Äú Sometimes I'm patronising. Sometimes I'm sarcastic. Sometimes he's (Nigel Benn) hot-headed. Sometimes Nell says nothing. Sometimes Uri dramatises little things like farts like he's an alien who's never seen one before. Sometimes Tony misses things because he's slightly slower. Sometimes Tara is like a child who's never been able to make a cup of tea. Sometimes, sometimes we are all like that, OK? That's life, that's personalities. ‚ÄĚ
