Please sit down, darling. I must talk to you.
I have something to tell you. I’m leaving you.
Are you comfortable? I’ll just raise the seat.
Root canal surgery, eh? Just relax.
Take a pew! Just a friendly, informal interview.
Why do you want this job, what are your strengths and weaknesses,
tell us a bit about yourself, where do you see yourself in five years?
I DON’T CARE whose fault it was. You can BOTH go and sit on the naughty step.
NO toys allowed, and KEEP QUIET.
Take a seat. I’m sorry to have to tell you that it’s bad news.
You can see the shadow on the x-ray here.
I sentence you to death by electric chair.
You will be taken from this place…
Sit! Sit! Obey orders, dog!
