LYDIA: Hi Dad… I’ve come to see you… So (she shrugs) here I am. (She is not happy. She walks into the flat and sits down)No… I don’t want any tea… you and Mum had such a barney, it was horrible. Horrible… you were both very nasty indeed… (Confronting her father) Listen, I don’t want to talk, if you don’t mind. Or listen, either. And I certainly don’t want to talk about that… I’m only here because it’s Tuesday … it’s Tuesday tea-time. Which happens to be your time… (She scowls) It’s just the principle of the thing… OK, so I’m asserting what is my right to see you… (She sounds unhappy)
