I just love imaging the scenario: LEE: "Halt! What are you doing?" ROBBER: "Erm, wow. See, I'm stealing from you." LEE: "You..! Is your intent to harm me and my family?" ROBBER: "Er, no. No. Just to nick your TV. Some jewelry. Stuff I can sell." LEE: "Right. OK. Well, um, firstly... thank you. For the not harming us bit. But, erm... look, sorry to be a bother, but I'm going to have to call the police." ROBBER: "No, I understand. No need to apologise. 'owever, if I'm being 'onest... Prefer if you didn't" LEE: "Well, see, Kinda have to." ROBBER: "Yeah... I could just leave then?" LEE: "No, no, that wouldn't work." ROBBER: "Well I'm 'ardly gonna wait for the coppers to show up, am I?" LEE: "RIght. Make sense. Hmmmm... Wait! What if I waived this gun around menacingly?" ROBBER: "Are you going to use it?" LEE: "Well, no. Not unless you harm us..." ROBBER: "Which I said I won't" LEE: "Yeah, see.. Can I ask a favour?" ROBBER: "I don't see why not." LEE: "Could you just say you were going to harm us?" ROBBER: "I won't!" LEE: "Oh go on!" ROBBER:"No!" LEE: "Please?" ROBBER: "You'll shoot me!" LEE: "I won't! I promise!" ROBBER: "Yes you will! You said if I 'armed your family, you'd shoot me! So, if I say I'm going to, well, that's it innit? You'd shoot me!" LEE: "Yeah, I would. I would."
