 以下はそれほどネタバレにならない程度の第五話のあらすじ。

 < - Lionelと二人で行ったCDショップで義姉(亡夫Davidの姉)Pennyに出くわすJean。人の好いPennyに好意は抱きつつも事あるごとに「(夫を亡くして)可哀想なJean」と憐れみをかけられて辟易するJeanは、Davidと知り合う前にLionelとの付き合いがあったことをPennyに黙っているようLionelに懇願。二人である程度口裏を合わせることに。しかし、Pennyの前で取り決めと全く正反対の行動に出たり話題を逸らすために突拍子もないことを次々と口走るJeanにLionelは - >


 今日紹介する一話も今回YouTubeでは見つけることが出来なかった。


 以下では更なるネタバレあり。


***************************************

[Jean suddenly tries to hide in a record shop]
Lionel: What are you doing?
Jean: Don't look at me!
Lionel: What are you doing?
Jean: There's someone I don't want to see.
Lionel: Who?
Jean: She's in blue.

[Penny finds Jean]
Penny: Jean!!
Jean: Oh, Penny!!
Penny: How lovely to see you!!
Jean: How lovely to see you!!
Lionel: ...

***************************************

Penny: Now, what about you two? How long have you known each other?
Lionel: Ah, well,...
Jean: Just a few months.
Lionel: ...

(Lionel役のGeoffrey Palmer)

[Jean and Lionel talking in the kitchen]
Lionel: What do you mean, a few months?.
Jean: Look, she doesn't know about us and I don't want her to.
Lionel: Why?
Jean: Lionel, she's my sister-in-law. I was married to her brother. You don't think I told him about us, do you?
Lionel: I don't know.
Jean: Well, it stands to reason. Did you tell your wife about me?
Lionel: I shouldn't think so.
Jean: There you are then.
Lionel: I'm sure she never asked. She was the least curious person I've ever met.

Lionel: This "only having known each other a few months" fiction, when did we meet?
Jean: How should I know.
Lionel: Ah, I just thought it might be better if we told the same story.
Jean: Look, just make it up as you go along, all right? If in doubt, change the subject.

Jean: One more thing. If she asks us down for the weekend, we can't go.
Lionel: That suits me fine. I hate staying in other people's houses. You get up at night to go to the loo, you never know which door to open. Why are you so sure she'll ask us?
Jean: Oh, she always does. So just say "NO."

(Jean役のJudi Dench)

Penny: Why don't you two come down to the cottage for the weekend? It's been such a long time and Stephen and I would love to have you.
Lionel: Ah, well,...
Penny: Please, don't say "NO" this time.
Lionel: Well, the thing is, we'd like to, but...
Jean: Thank you. We'd love to.
Lionel: ...

Penny: What does Lionel do? Have you asked him?
Stephen: No.
Penny: Why not?
Stephen: Well, I...
Penny: Oh, I expect it will come up in some way. [Penny rambles on]... Just let the conversation take its course.
Stephen: Yes. I usually do that.

Jean: What on earth are you doing?
Lionel: Brazing a trail. If I get up in the night, I just feel for the plaster.

***************************************

Penny: You had so much going for you.
Stephen: Would anybody like some more coffee..?
Penny: A kind husband. He was a lovely man, Lionel. A beautiful daughter. So much to look forward to and then...
Jean: ... Lionel is a psychiatrist.
Lionel: ...

As Time Goes By E05 05
(Lionel役のGeoffrey Palmer)

Lionel: You suddenly announced, out of the blue, "Lionel is a psychiatrist!"
Jean: I wanted to change the subject.
Lionel: Couldn't you've done something simpler, like throw a chair through the window?

***************************************

Stephen: You forgive me for saying so, but you and Jean seem to be somewhat ill at ease.
Lionel: Do we?
Stephen: I think I know why. You've known each other for a good deal longer than just a few months, haven't you?
Lionel: We knew each other a long time ago, before she met David.

Lionel: Does Penny know?
Stephen: Good heavens, no. Bless her heart. She only talks.

Stephen: I shan't say anything, of course.
Lionel: Thanks.
Stephen: Now if the subject should come up again, we just try and steer it onto something else.
Lionel: Like my being a psychiatrist?
Stephen: Good idea. A fascinating subject psychiatry.
Lionel: Yes, it must be.
Stephen: ... ?!

As Time Goes By E05 07
(左からStephen役のPaul ChapmanとLionel役のGeoffrey Palmer)

Lionel: ... to a layman, I mean.
Stephen: Tell me, how long have you been a psychiatrist, several years I suppose?
Lionel: Oh, yes, several years. But you know, sometimes it only seems like a couple of hours.

***************************************

Penny: I like Lionel.
Jean: So do I.
Penny: Poor Jean!!
Jean: Oh, why "Poor Jean" again?
Penny: Well, I mean, meeting him so late in life. You know how fond I was of David, but I know he'd be absolutely delighted if you've met someone, well...
Jean: After a decent interval?
Penny: Yes.
Jean: Yes, well, I know he would. But, well, now I have met Lionel.
Penny: But so late.
Jean: That's the second time you've said that. We're not exactly in our dotage.
Penny: No, no, of course you're not. And companionship can be a wonderful thing, in its own way. Poor Jean.

(左からPenny役のMoyra FraserとJean役のJudi Dench)

Jean: Penny. I think you ought to know that my relationship with Lionel goes a long way beyond companionship.
Penny: Good gracious! Does it?
Jean: Of course.
Penny: You mean?
Jean: Yes, of course.
Penny: But you didn't say.
Jean: Well, it's not the kind of thing you throw into the conversation right away, is it?
Penny: I think it's wonderful!
Jean: Good!
Penny: But you didn't say.
Jean: No, we've done that one.
Penny: No, but I mean, I automatically put you in separate rooms.
Jean: Oh, oh, oh, no, well, that's fine, that's all right...
Penny: No, no, no! It isn't fine! You should have said! Now, I'll change things round upstairs. It won't take a jiff.
Jean: ...

Jean: Well?
Lionel: One small step for man.

 記念すべきPennyとStephen夫妻初登場のエピソード。

 先日のRocky、Mrs. Bale、そして後日登場するMadgeがその見た目と中身のエキセントリックさで圧倒的な存在感を発揮するのに対して、見た目や中身は平凡のようでいて強烈な印象を残す夫妻。これは実際に作品を見てもらわないと中々伝わらないだろう。

 メチャクチャ笑えると同時に、途中で何度もLionelが可哀想に思えて来る一話でもある。Poor Lionel。


出演:
Judi Dench (Jean Pargetter)
Geoffrey Palmer (Lionel Hardcastle)
