Key turns in lock. A dopey looking girl walks in and embraces a clearly nervous bloke.

Bloke: " Darling you're home ! You're back here with me ! "( Loving cuddle...minor fumbling.)
Dopey Girl: " Yes ! Strangely, I felt compelled by forces beyond my control to return home and completely forgive your constant philandering, drinking sprees, household gunplay and spendthrift Telecaster collecting. Against all commen sense and much advice from my lawyers, everything seems oddly wonderful ! "
Bloke: " So it worked then....thank goodness for the public library system and dear old black magic ! "
Dopey Girl : " Er....what do you mean ? What's that smelly bag thing on the chair ? And why is little Smokies basket empty
? " ( Draws away from him and narrows eyes.)
Bloke: " It's a long story sweetheart and frankly I think you should sit down for it. Ooops...I'll just move the mojo to over here....."
