Because of the number of long lines to be learnt, there were several rehearsals for each scene. The strange thing was, though, that everyone was fine in practise, but kept forgetting their lines when the camera was recording! In fact at times it degraded to just one single line per take, following by people cracking up with laughter. And on the takes when it was going well either the smoke alarm in the kitchen would go beep beep or my stomach would rumble! But, as always, we got there in the end.
Sue spent most of the evening off-camera, but managed to get a few minutes of screen-time towards the end. By the time we packed up for the night, Mike's leg was numb from sitting in the same position for hours and he was fed up with the comic which he probably knew off by heart after reading it in almost every shot.
