Ted. What shall I do?
lack. I have a good idea.
Ted. What is it?
lack. You get under the seat till he's gone. I’ll sit over you and hide you with my legs. He’ll never see you. As soon as he’s gone, you can come out.
Ted. He’ll be here any minute. Shall I get under the seat now?
lack. Yes, you’d better. And don’t move while he's in the carriage. (Ted gets under the seat. The ticket collector comes along. Jack hands him two tickets, his own and Ted’s.)
Insp. Whose ticket is this one?
lack. Oh, that’s my friend’s.
Insp. Where’s he gone?
lack. Nowhere. He’s under the seat.
Insp. But what’s he doing there?
lack. Oh, he’s fond of travelling under the seat, aren’t you, Ted?
Ted (getting out from under the seat). All right. I’ll pay you back for this. Just you wait.
