Episode 178 Transcript:

Emma: You’re listening to the Lovely Mass Podcast, your cozy consolation hear. This week we’re dissecting a favourite Consolation watch film for decor and residential inspiration. That is an ongoing collection for us, and this week’s choice is Father of the Bride, 1991, and Nancy Myers Basic. It’s a must to say what yr as a result of it’s a remake, which I don’t assume I noticed once I first watched it as a result of I’ve truly by no means seen the unique. So that will be a enjoyable one to do too. Which wouldn’t be a re-watch for me, it could be a primary watch.

Elsie: It’s constituted of a film from 1950. After which additionally it was remade like final yr there was a Robert DeNiro father of the bride that you just watched. I didn’t see it however I keep in mind you advised me about it.

Emma: Sure, I watched it with my husband and he cherished it much more than I did, I believe, and we each cherished it. It’s so cute. 

Elsie: Nicely, I can not wait to get to Father of the bride. I believe we’ll in all probability do a separate episode sometime sooner or later for half two, which is the like they’re having infants. They’re each so good, I can’t choose which one I like extra, I like them each equal. 

Emma: Yeah, I in all probability like them each equally, however they’re completely different. I like them for various causes. I really feel like Diane Keaton will get extra time in the second and I actually like that. She’s nice on this one too, however I don’t know. Anyway, in the event you’ve by no means seen this one, we’ll let you know slightly bit concerning the plot. You can even Google it, however primarily it facilities round George Banks, performed by Steve Martin, who’s a father. His daughter sort of shortly and unexpectedly will get engaged and he’s having a tough time letting her develop up, and that’s form of what’s occurring in his life. So he’s the daddy of the bride and so they resolve to have the marriage at their home, of their yard. And he’s coping with his daughter rising up, accepting this younger man who’s gonna be a son-in-law paying for the marriage and sort of all of the like humorous little, , properly I’m the daddy of the bride, I gotta pay for, , all these sort of, I believe slightly bit quaint, however I additionally perceive it. 

Elsie: He’s obtained this big quantity of complaining concerning the value of the marriage and cash, which may be very cute. And yeah, similar to Steve Martin having his like freak-out scenes, there’s a really iconic scene the place he begins ripping up the hotdog bun bundle as a result of he solely needs the identical variety of hotdogs and hotdog buns. And I imply, I simply need to say upfront, this film brings out my Steve Martin crush like no different. It’s actually intense for some purpose on this film. I believe it’s certainly one of his greatest healthful film performances. I’ve all the time cherished Steve Martin. We presently watch Solely Murders and I like him a lot, it doesn’t matter what, and Martin Quick as properly. However this film, there’s one thing about it, it’s prefer it was written for, you understand how typically they write a film only for the actor. I didn’t see that within the trivia, however I really feel like they in all probability didn’t actually take into account lots of different actors moreover Steve Martin. He’s excellent. 

Emma: Yeah. I don’t know however he’s excellent at this. 

Elsie: So do you’ve gotten any recollections from the primary time you watched? I don’t, I don’t keep in mind the primary time I watched it. 

Emma: I don’t, I keep in mind rewatching it in all probability like 5 or 6 years in the past and my ideas then, however I don’t assume that was the primary time I noticed it, I doubt it, but it surely might have been. However one factor I keep in mind pondering was like, oh wow, narration as a result of it actually opens with lots of. It actually virtually seems like a ebook as a result of Steve Martin’s character, George may be very like narrating. You recognize, we dwell on this home we blah, blah. He’s simply very very similar to supplying you with a set of the scene, which doesn’t occur lots in motion pictures. I don’t really feel, it’s not tremendous, tremendous widespread. 

Elsie: I used to be already crying on his first opening scene when he’s like, I by no means wanna transfer, I like that we went tenting in our yard. All these little issues that he was saying, oh my god. 

Emma: Yeah, he’s reminiscing about all his recollections along with his kids, which he additionally has a son who’s not totally grown but, so there’s nonetheless like that within the film too. However yeah, he’s simply coming to phrases with getting old and his youngsters getting old and life-changing, which is difficult. However it’s actually candy. So for me, we’re gonna speak about decor and all that, however I additionally really feel like that is the film, not even simply the Nancy Meyers one, however of all the flicks, that simply feels to me prefer it might have been made in my city. I don’t essentially assume it’s made within the Midwest or I don’t assume folks could be like, oh, this feels very midwest.

Elsie: It’s presupposed to be a small city in California. 

Emma: Yeah as a result of the opposite home that’s like, , the son-in-law, their dad and mom really feel much more California. And he drives round, I believe you see palm timber however there’s simply one thing about this home and I simply guess possibly the household sensibilities and issues, which is one thing that’s everywhere in the nation, but it surely simply felt to me very like, oh, this could possibly be the place I’m from, which I don’t really feel that lots in motion pictures to be sincere, particularly in motion pictures from sure eras, because it seems like lots of California, New York, it doesn’t all the time really feel very center of the nation. I by no means really feel like this might have been in Missouri, so it simply has a really basic, could possibly be anyplace very relatable, regardless that the home is sort of huge and beautiful, but it surely simply seems like not a totally unrelatable factor. 

Elsie: Yeah, it’s undoubtedly certainly one of my favourite film homes of all time. If I had been residing on an infinite funds in LA, that is the film home that I might strive all the pieces to get, it’s so wonderful. It’s such a fantastic home, however I believe that our new home, one of many issues I preferred about it’s that I used to be like, it has slightly tiny little bit of father of the bride. I believe it appears to be like slightly bit extra like a unique film home. It has slightly tiny bit, and I’ll add extra over time, particularly the picket fence, I believe I can add that this yr. It’s actually a basic, lovely house. I’ll hyperlink in our present notes, there’s this weblog that I like to have a look at referred to as Hooked on Homes, and so they have an entire publish concerning the father of the bride home and so they simply do film homes and so they sort of simply clarify what’s actual places, what’s a sound stage. It’s simply sort of fascinating for nerds like us. So, yeah, I’ll put that in there and you’ll have a look at footage in the event you haven’t seen it shortly or you have to refresh your self. It’s a fantastic, iconic white clapboard home. So let’s discuss concerning the decor. Oh my God, there are such a lot of good elements of it and I’ll say that they do present the inside sort much more within the second film. While you have a look at the photographs, simply have a look at each of ’em as a result of it’s nice each methods. However my favourite factor about this film is that they present a scene the place the home is roofed in snow, and it’s such as you actually haven’t seen a home till you’ve seen it coated in snow, proper? So the outside of the house, certainly one of my favourite issues about it, has shutters. It’s so cute and it has lots of vines rising on the entrance of the home, and lots of flowers rising, which I believe is so basic and exquisite. Anytime I’ve ever talked to a landscaping particular person, they hate it and so they suggest in opposition to it and I suppose it probably has its points. However certain this home, appears to be like so good on there that it simply makes me wanna like develop vines on my home. 

Emma: Yeah, I imply, they’re all through the film prepping to have the marriage outdoors, or a minimum of a part of the marriage is outdoors, in order that they’re wanting it to look actually manicured and all that. However I additionally assume the outside, they do such a fantastic job of doing the identical factor with the exteriors, they do the inside, which is, it simply seems like very lived in. It doesn’t really feel like they simply purchased this home, or this film crew simply pulled as much as this new home and it doesn’t actually have a lot character. I don’t even know if it was another person’s home, I don’t know. We’re in all probability gonna speak about that within the trivia, however I simply really feel prefer it seems like folks have been residing right here for 10, 20, 30 years, it seems like that. It seems like they planted these roses years and years in the past and now they’ve the entire bush. It feels very cozy. I personally am not a lot of a landscaping exterior crops particular person as a result of we don’t even mow our personal yard. We rent somebody to try this. I simply should not have a inexperienced thumb, however I do love strolling by folks’s homes who do. So I so admire it and I aspire, however man it’s not my period for it. Perhaps it by no means might be, I don’t know, we’ll see what occurs in life and preserve my thoughts open to it. However I might like to stroll by this home as a result of I believe it could scent wonderful. I simply assume it could look lovely and yeah, they present us a scene the place it’s snowy, so that you sort of get to see the completely different seasons and that’s enjoyable. 

Elsie: Subsequent time we go to LA we should always attempt to take an image there and simply be that loser for one minute as a result of it’s my favourite home. I do know it’s annoying that folks try this, however one time on your very favourite one possibly. 

Emma: Hey, I by no means promised to not be annoying.

Elsie: That’s true. It’s in Pasadena and in line with Hooked on Homes, they use two homes to movie. I believe that the yard is a unique home after which the entrance yard is that this home. So, the basketball is definitely from the opposite home, however I really feel like that’s an enormous a part of the nostalgia of this home is the scenes the place they’re enjoying basketball collectively and the film has lots of little flashbacks the place it reveals his daughter Annie as slightly woman, after which he realizes she’s a lady and it’s going forwards and backwards and it’s tugging at your heartstrings. Not too long ago our daughter requested if we might get a basketball purpose at our new home, and I similar to about misplaced it and I used to be like, I’m gonna make it look similar to the daddy of the bride. I sort of simply wanna make Jeremy into Steve Martin from Father of the Bride, is that unhealthy? 

Emma: No, it is best to do it. In case you might do it, do it. 

Elsie: It’s an aspiration. It’s so romantic. I like the basketball scenes. It’s certainly one of my favourite stills. It counts as its personal room, I believe as a result of it’s so particular. 

Emma: It additionally has the additional advantage of all of the stuff you simply stated, but in addition it reveals off the sneakers as a result of he owns a shoe enterprise referred to as Sidekicks. So that you’re seeing the tennis sneakers as they’re enjoying basketball. However yeah, we additionally had a basketball purpose in our driveway rising up. I keep in mind enjoying with our dad, we’d play horse lots. The place you’re like attempting to make the hampers and spell out horse, issues like that. You had been extra into basketball than I used to be, however I’ve recollections of that. So I believe that’s a part of it too, is I’m like, yeah, that’s a factor. All households have the basketball purpose within the driveway. That’s not essentially true however on this film, you get to see it and it sort of hits house. 

Elsie: I adore it. One other favourite a part of this house is the kitchen. It’s talked about usually. It’s form of similar to the idyllic American kitchen, whenever you analyze it whenever you’re actually trying, it’s very cluttered. It’s not that nice, but it surely’s the sensation that it offers you after they’re having scenes in there’s actually, actually good. So yeah, I actually wanna perceive what it’s that makes that excellent kitchen feeling.

Emma: Yeah, I agree. While you actually have a look at it, it’s a huge kitchen however you’ll be able to sort of inform from the skin of the home, it’s not gonna be a small kitchen. In order that’s not essentially stunning. It doesn’t really feel like there are any super-expensive finishes. It’s not like they’ve these loopy marbled counter tops or something. It feels sort of relatable, though it’s a very massive kitchen. 

Elsie: Kitchens within the Nineteen Nineties had been actually completely different than now. There have been completely different countertop traits, I believe there are butcher counters. They usually actually didn’t have a stable floor and marble. 

Emma: Yeah. It was extra like tiled counter tops. That was extra in.

Elsie: Yeah, it was like tiled or butcher or regardless of the different sort of fake-looking marble is named.

Emma: Laminate. 

Elsie: Yeah, laminate. In case you actually have a look at nineties motion pictures, you actually don’t see granite or quartz or marble until they’re displaying that it’s like an vintage kitchen.

Emma: And even just like the home equipment on this home, the oven and range prime appears to be like very nice, I don’t know the model. It sort of appeared like a KitchenAid to me, however I don’t actually know. However then the fridge is like this black facet by facet. It doesn’t actually appear to be something, all that particular. It doesn’t look crappy or something, however I simply imply all of it appears to be like relatable, good center class, not like loopy fancy, not like, oh, it is a restaurant kitchen and cooks dwell right here. It doesn’t actually really feel that method, however on the identical time, it does really feel like an actual household there who cooks as a result of it’s a little cluttered. In a great way, I believe in a homey method, there’s like pans hanging above the island and so they appear to be they’ve been used. They don’t appear to be a model new set that some set particular person hung up proper earlier than they began taking pictures. Simply doesn’t all look tremendous matchy, matchy. So it feels actual, regardless that it’s not, it’s a film.

Elsie: Yeah. It’s an excellent feeling kitchen. One other factor that’s sort of all the time in a Nancy Meyers film is an out of doors eating scene, and so they have a fantastic out of doors eating scene with candles and it simply each time see them, I’m like, why don’t we eat outside with candles? We simply don’t try this and I wanna try this. It’s like an aspiration that’s so attainable. It’s easy, however I simply don’t try this. So yeah, it’s one thing that I actually need to incorporate. 

Emma: Yeah, I guess your women would actually wanna try this too. They love consuming outdoors, candles make it much more particular. 

Elsie: Sure. Okay. So about the lounge. Not too long ago I requested my husband, Jeremy, what do you concentrate on such a couch? And I confirmed him a white slipcover couch, like a Nancy Meyers. It’s sort of in all her motion pictures. There’s sort of by no means some other sort of couch moreover these white slipcover sofas. It’s very basic. I don’t see as a lot of my mates utilizing them although. It’s slightly little bit of an old-person factor, proper? I requested him, as a result of they’ve them round and it’s fascinating. It’s undoubtedly an fascinating factor for somebody like me who switched sofas so many instances, this appears extra washable, one thing completely different, appears extra long-lasting. Looks like it’s not attempting to be the assertion of your room as a result of I’ve a factor for coloured sofas, which doesn’t all the time work out as probably the most long-lasting buy choice. So anyway, I confirmed him the image and he was just like the strongest response. Completely not, he was like, no method and he by no means does that. So yeah, I used to be curious what you concentrate on them as a result of I believe I’m 50 50 truly. I wasn’t attempting to speak him into it, I in all probability might have. I used to be simply gauging the temperature and it was chilly as ice. Yeah. I’m curious, what do you concentrate on the white slipcover couch factor?

Emma: I might like to know extra from somebody who has one or simply critiques, I suppose as a result of my impression is that they’d be simpler to scrub as properly. So if that’s truly true, then I’m like, Ooh, that’s fairly fascinating as a result of we’re a family that has youngsters and canine and I let Oscar eat snacks on the sofa typically and , we get crumbs, all that. So yeah, I would like issues which might be fairly washable. I additionally don’t have a powerful sense of what these prices are versus among the different couches that we are inclined to gravitate in direction of. However the principle factor that places me not ice chilly, however extra within the center or possibly slightly scorching, is I like the concept the sofa is just not essentially the assertion within the room as a result of I simply are inclined to wanna have artwork or colourful throw pillows, or actually, I’m a type of folks now the place I like wanna put out my Halloween throw pillows after which my Christmas throw pillows, my all yr spherical throw pillow. So I sort of like a sofa that’s gonna exhibit my seasonal decor and like the opposite issues within the room, I sort of preferred that concept. However once I’m procuring, I haven’t shopped for a sofa in fairly a while, however I do sort of transfer in direction of the coloured ones or extra of a press release piece as a result of they simply actually stand out. They only look extra fascinating than a boring sofa. I suppose not, these are boring, however , much less of a press release.

Elsie: Yeah. Nicely, that’s fascinating. Within the nineties decor books, you understand how Elise has the nineties decor books factor she does on Instagram? They all the time have them, so possibly it is rather like a really nineties factor, however I do know they’re at Pottery Barn and locations like that, so I don’t know. I’m keen on our listeners, we’d love to listen to what you concentrate on these sofas as a result of I don’t know, I believe it’s possibly considerably polarizing. And when you’ve got them, please ship us a message and inform us what you assume, if it’s higher, if it’s laborious to maintain clear something, we don’t know. We’re clueless. However yeah, I’m interested by our new house, , it’s like slightly extra conventional and I’ve not picked out any kinda couch but, and I must, and it’s like, what do I do? I don’t know. Anyway. Okay, so my favourite second from the entire film, is that if I had been going to make a wall artwork of 1 nonetheless within the bathtub with the swans in it. 

Emma: I knew you had been gonna say that, yeah. 

Elsie: Oh my god. Yeah, I need to be an artwork painter. It’s simply so cute, it’s iconic.

Emma: Yeah. It’s the second we had been like, oh man. 

Elsie: I adore it. Okay, so different cozy inspirations from the film, may be style, meals, drink, or something. I actually assume Diane Keaton is sort of a fashion icon. I need to be all the pieces about her from all ages she’s ever been in her day. 

Emma: All the time and Ceaselessly. Yeah, each film she’s ever in.

Elsie: She’s the last word girl. 

Emma: Yeah, she actually is. She actually is and he or she appears to be like lovely on this film. Not stunning.

Elsie: One in every of my favourite issues is that the opening credit of the film, the producer and all that is rather like champagne bubbles for like 5 straight minutes and I don’t know, I suppose I didn’t discover it up to now, however this time I used to be like, that’s truly so cute, like lovely.

Emma: It’s, yeah. And it actually units the scene for this film’s a few wedding ceremony and celebration and romance, ? Yeah. 

Elsie: Yeah. It’s cute. The opposite factor is the marriage tent so ever since we’ve got been beginning to put together to maneuver to our new house, which does have an acre and a half. I dunno if I’ve stated that earlier than, it’s a fairly large yard. I don’t know if I might wanna say this out loud, however I’ll. Cuz why not? I’m obsessed that I would like certainly one of my youngsters to get married in our yard and I believe it’s from this film. I’m obsessive about it although and it’s like, that’s not an affordable obsession to have as a result of it’s not likely your alternative and also you shouldn’t be into 

Emma: Yeah. Forcing one thing like that. Perhaps they are going to, however yeah. 

Elsie: And it could possibly be one thing else too.

Emma: What about this although? What if we lease a type of tents for some sort of celebration? Or, I imply, I’m gonna flip 40 in a pair extra years. We could possibly be Emma’s birthday, a fortieth celebration, otherwise you and Jeremy have an enormous anniversary celebration in the event you wished to or one thing the place, ?

Elsie: I’ll make this type of fortieth celebration the scale of a marriage, that’s positive. 

Emma: Okay, nice. Nice. There’s nothing I like greater than lots of consideration on my birthdays. 

Elsie: Yep. I’ll provide you with a 10-minute-long awkward toast similar to I did at your wedding ceremony. I’ll do all of it. 

Emma: Oh my God. All I imply is if you would like a type of tents in your yard, I guess we will provide you with a purpose.

Elsie: Yeah, no, that sounds good. I agree. Just like the scenes with the greenery across the doorways and it’s simply so cute.

Emma: Yeah, we gotta do it within the spring or summer season. It will possibly’t be my birthday now that I’m occupied with it. That’s in January. That’s not gonna work. We gotta do one thing within the spring or summer season, possibly for our mother. Anyway, we will discover a purpose to place that tent in your yard. Don’t fear about it. 

Elsie: Yeah, that sounds actually good. 

Emma: We might get some swans too. 

Elsie: May we actually? 

Emma: I’m certain we might, please. I don’t know what it prices, however yeah, I’m certain we might. 

Elsie: It sounds nice. Right here’s my bank card, signal me up. Okay. 

Emma: I like his little automotive, his like sports activities automotive that he drives round. I’m not likely a automotive particular person.

Elsie: What sort of automotive is that? 

Emma: I don’t know, yeah, we’d need to look it up. It’s so cute. I used to be gonna say, I’m not likely a lot of a automotive particular person. I simply drive a Subaru and I’ve for years and I adore it. Like, I don’t care. I might by no means get myself a flowery little automotive. It’s not an indulgence that I personally need, however I do like how a lot he appears to love it and he’s driving round. It’s like his particular little factor, clearly. And I sort of similar to that vibe. I get it. After which additionally, I really feel like this film ought to get credited for just like the dad sneakers as a result of he’ll put on this type of particular tennis sneakers due to his shoe firm. However I really feel like that’s the dad shoe look and I really feel like this film may be just like the origin story or one thing. 

Elsie: That’s true. How come that folks say that Tom Hanks is America’s dad as an alternative of Steve Martin?

Emma: I don’t know. Most likely Steve Martin’s pissed about it. No, I don’t know. 

Elsie: I really feel like he sort of earned it. 

Emma: You would have multiple dad. They may each be the dad. 

Elsie: That’s true. Why not be like Mama Mia? That’s positive. Okay, so I had down, did this film age properly, or did it not age properly? I believe it aged very properly on the spectrum of Nineteen Nineties motion pictures, which is what we’ve largely been rewatching not too long ago. I believe it’s up there on the very prime. I believe it’s very watchable. Even Martin Quick’s efficiency, I don’t know if they’d put that in a film now. However I believe it’s so unhealthy that it’s good and it sort of works. I don’t know. What do you assume? 

Emma: Yeah, I believe that’s the one factor that I’m like, I don’t learn about that accent alternative or what sort of character he’s doing precisely, however he’s doing his factor, I’m unsure about that with the getting old, I don’t know. After which I additionally assume it’s simply not as conventional now that, the daddy of the bride pays for the marriage. However I additionally assume this film doesn’t deal with it, there are usually not actually lots of sexist feedback about it. It’s extra, I take into consideration a person who’s getting old and coping with that and seeing his daughter develop up and stuff. So I truly assume all of that age like very well and good. However I do assume in the event that they remade it, I imply they do have a brand new one now, but when they’re making it proper now this yr, a few of that will dialogue and issues would in all probability change. However I don’t really feel like something in it makes me really feel like, Ooh, that is so dated and that’s not good. I believe it sort of works and ladders as much as the theme of the film. 

Elsie: I utterly agree. Okay. Do you wanna hear some trivia? 

Emma: Sure. All the time. 

Elsie: Okay. This one is tougher to seek out lots of trivia on, however I’ll present you what I’ve. So the primary piece of trivia is that Eugene Levy seems in each movies, Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride, half two from 1995, however as completely different characters in every. 

Emma: Yeah, that’s true. That’s humorous. 

Elsie: Yeah, I didn’t discover that. 

Emma: I didn’t discover that and now you’re saying, I’m like, yeah, that’s true. That’s actually humorous. They only actually preferred working with him. They’re like, we should convey him again. However , we had this completely different character we’d like, so. Yeah. 

Elsie: Yeah, I believe if I had been making a film, I might in all probability choose Eugene Levy each single time, it doesn’t matter what. In order that is smart. Okay, so the daughter on this film is called Annie and within the Guardian Lure, the Nancy Meyers model, the daughters are named Annie and Halle, that are the names of Nancy Meyers’s daughters. Cute, huh? Sure, so I’ve already stated this earlier within the episode, however that is my primary most coveted film home. Truly, possibly I might give it a tie for, I don’t know. I don’t know, however I’ll say, that is my primary most coveted film home in California. That is the one, it’s similar to, it’s so iconic. It’s so wonderful, and I simply love that it’s an actual home that somebody will get to dwell in, whoever they’re, good for them. 

Emma: I agree. Yeah, and identical, it may be tied with, It’s Difficult, Meryl Streep’s home. However I don’t know. I do really feel like this one feels extra, like could possibly be within the Midwest to me, not simply Southern California, regardless that it’s in California. So I don’t know, however yeah, I like this home a lot. I like this kitchen a lot. The whole lot about it. 

Elsie: Yeah. It’s a really basic century house. Okay, so that is fairly widespread, however the entire interiors from the film are a sound stage, so none of them are actually in that home. All of it’s simply began from scratch, and I believe they did a very good job. They’re like stained glass and woodwork and it feels very, very genuine for a historic house, particularly styled within the nineties. And yeah, simply the correct quantity of litter. Which I believe makes it really feel much less like a film set and extra like somebody’s actual house.

Emma: Agree. Yeah. They did an incredible job.

Elsie: Okay. So that is only a micro element that I similar to love, however within the first film there’s truly, in the event you look intently within the kitchen behind her sink and stuff, there’s truly cow print tile on the partitions with little cows on it. After which when it comes again for the second film, it’s switched to impartial tile. Isn’t that cute?

Emma: I didn’t discover the cow print tile. Yeah. Now I wanna re-watch it once more simply to see the tile. Yeah, I didn’t discover that. That’s fascinating. 

Elsie: After we had been in highschool, certainly one of our shut mates, his mother had a cow-themed kitchen that was a ten, prefer it was not slightly bit cow themed. It was a ten out of 10 cows-themed kitchens. 

Emma: I had one other buddy whose mother had a pig kitchen. All pigs. Yeah. Why did my kitchen have a theme? What’s improper with me? Now that I’m occupied with it? 

Elsie: Within the nineties, I believe folks considered their kitchens slightly bit extra like a nursery the place you had a theme and I don’t assume folks do sort of anymore. However yeah, I believe the cow factor is humorous as a result of it’s change into a development, once more, like a Gen Z development not too long ago, the previous couple of years. And it’s not for me, but it surely’s like I see that it’s there and I acknowledge that it’s trending. 

Emma: I prefer it for the nostalgia, I need to say. However there isn’t a method in hell if I had an entire pig kitchen, that Trey would come house and be like, that is completely positive, and I’m not gonna remark about this, there’s no probability.

Elsie: Yeah, it’s fairly delicate although, cuz you don’t even actually discover it. However now you’ll, now you’ll see it.
