Rant: (Hysterically) Us? Today? Presenting a school version of Britain’s Got Talent?
Heck: Why, yes! Oh heck! Didn’t I mention this to you?
Rant: (Exploding) Didn’t I mention this to you? Well, of course you didn’t! Do you seriously think I would have agreed?

Heck: No! No! He doesn’t need an international football star! He asked for us!
Head Teacher: But if it’s too much trouble …
Heck: Oh heck! Of course it’s not! Rant and Heck at your service!
Head Teacher: (To Rant) Mr. Rant?
Rant: Well, seeing as you asked especially for us. (Sighing) How can I say no?
Head Teacher: Splendid! So! On with the show! (To audience) Let’s put our hands together now and welcome our judges – two Year Sixes and two teachers

Heck: (Apologetically to Head Teacher) No offence, sir. But you can sit down now
(Heck shows Head Teacher to his seat)
Rant: And let us get on with it! (Looking at watch) When did you say they take ‘Break’ ?
Heck: Not just yet! We haven’t even got round to introducing the judges yet, let alone the contestants!
Rant: So let’s get on with it, man! (Turning to Judge 1) You are?
Judge 1: Aren’t you meant to introduce us?
Rant: (Aside) Ooh! I can see it’s true what they say about these kids in school today having attitude!
Judge 1: (Pompously) Allow me!
Heck: (Aside, sarcastically) Do we have a choice?
