I’m doing all the work in this former relationship

Stewart Thorn We need to talk. Things clearly haven’t been right between us for a while, so I just had to bring it up. Because be honest – you wouldn’t have said anything, would you? If it had been down to you, we would have just carried on as normal, hanging out with our respective friends and having fun, just as you would expect any two young, single people to do – as if there was nothing... 

It’s such a nice day, why don’t we take this open heart surgery outside?

Dr Henry Bozeman, Cincinnati Free Hospital It’s performing life-changing heart surgery like this that makes me glad I went into medicine. There’s nothing more rewarding than knowing that the gentleman laid out here could live well into his sixties because of the coronary grafting procedure we’re carrying out. And to be doing so on such a delightful spring day, well, it just makes you feel grateful... 

If we save just one child with this project… It probably won’t be worth it

By Justin Forsyth, Director, Save The Children At Save The Children, we’re committed to ensuring that children  everywhere have access to proper healthcare, food and education. That’s  why we’ve worked to secure £100 million of funding to pay for free school  equipment for at least half of the 1.7 million children living below the  poverty line in the UK.

It’s hard to believe that was six years ago now. That’s right – six years since Becky and Al got together at the grad ball (finally). Six years since... 

Does anybody want to talk about anything other than territory?

Dr Doolittle Morning all. You’re sounding rather excitable this morning – what’s ruffled your feathers? Just my little joke there. Seriously though, there does seem to be something the matter. Hold on – it’s territory again, isn’t it? I knew it. I don’t understand why you insist on bringing it up – it only leads to disagreement. Now don’t oink at me in that manner, Gub-Gub. I... 

I think I’ll go with the salmon

Brown bear Now, let’s see what we’ve got here. Say, the salmon sounds good – I think I’ll go with that. Does that come with asparagus? No? It’s okay, I probably wouldn’t eat that anyway. Potatoes? It comes with potatoes, huh? Well all right, that sounds pretty good to me. I think I’ll be focusing in on that salmon, but maybe I’ll have time for a potato or two. Wait a minute though,...
