But Tom doesn't live in a garage...

Steve: "I'm taking a handbag on the sunrise walk."
And I wasn't there, so I'm going to report that he did.

Christine: "I'm with it!"
The funny thing is that she doesn't see why this is a quote...

Alison: "Don't mess with me!"
She comes from Croydon...what more need we say?

Adam: "This flapjack tastes of peppermint"
Laura had made us a cake with a whole bottle of peppermint essence in. Everything was tasting of peppermint.

This could explain a lot...

Don't worry, Angela, we love you really.

Unfortunately I don't know who she said this to...or why they were molesting Steve...

About Steve...

Laura: "That phrase makes me want to punch everyone"

We had wondered what all the noise was...

Christine: "I looked at the lettuce, and it was wobbling"
This managed to occupy her for quite some time...

Steve: "You can chew and write, but you can't talk and write."

Alison: "There are no corners"

Steve: "Why is she eating herself?"
I'd appreciate it if anyone could tell me the context of this one...on its own it rather scares me...

Steve: "When I go off and have a lie down, it all descends into a seance"

Katie: "I'm going to be a pastatenerian"
Apparently they refuse to eat pasta...

Katie: "Hang on, vegeterians eat meat"
You see, it comes from the Greek vegetos, meaning to sit very still and throw things at sheep. Yes, of course they had a word for that...well, they do in Welsh...

Laura: "Pasta is being sentenced to 5 years in jail"
Pasta wasn't too popular by the end of the meal...
