"I really should have read the runsheet"
"This is rapidly turning into a complete disaster."
It was a simple phoner about reunited families. It turned into "an absolute bin fire" as Marty launched into a story about a family who were reunited after 75 years having been separated in India and Pakistan without having checked the sheet first.
