Pamela Piggott:
[Talking about her ex-boyfriend]
The bastard walked out on me. Stole my telly, two Picasso posters, and my hair dryer. Moved in with some skinny girl in Kensington... When I found out, would you believe I tried to kill myself?
Wendell Armbruster:
No!
Pamela Piggott:
Yes. I took my week's salary, bought myself a suitcase full of fish and chips and a dozen bottles of Guinness stout, and tried to eat myself to death. Took them hours to pump my stomach out.
Wendell Armbruster:
Was it worth it, for a guy like that?
Pamela Piggott:
It was stupid. But I've learned my lesson: No more fish and chips!

Transcript:
we haven't seen each other
for six months.
The bastard walked out on me...
stole my telly,
two Picasso posters...
and my hairdryer.
There's an apostle for you.
Moved in with some
skinny girl in Kensington.
When I found out,
would you believe...
I tried to commit suicide?
- No.
- Yes.
I took my week's salary...
bought myself a suitcase
full of fish and chips...
and a dozen bottles
of Guinness stout...
and tried to
eat myself to death.
Took them hours
to pump my stomach out.
Was it worth it
for a guy like that?
It was stupid,
but I've learned my lesson.
Good.
No more fish and chips.
I guess there is something...
to what it says
in the tourist guide.
What does it say?
It says,
"ltaly is not a country.
"It's an emotion."
It's certainly been
an experience.
I'm afraid we have
some sightseers.
Please. Where's
your British reserve?
