Gareth: Scarlotta! Fabulous dress. The ecclesiastical purple and the pagan orange symbolizing the mystical symbiosis in marriage between the heathen and Christian traditions? pause Scarlett: That's right.


Gareth: We had the most delightful girl at our table. Carrie, apparently her fianc?'s terribly grand and owns half of Scotland. How about you? Charles: I seem to be stuck in the wedding from hell, ghosts of girlfriends past at every turn. Next thing I'll bump into Henrietta and the nightmare will be complete. Henrietta: Hello Charles. Charles: Hello Hen, how are you? Hen bursts into tears

George the boor at The Boatman: If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels but have not love, I am as a sounding gong or a clanging cymbal. Gareth: Good point.

Henrietta: Charles! Charles, we must talk. Charles: Right. Henrietta: The thing is, Charlie, l've spoken to lots of people about you. Everybody agrees you're in real trouble, Charles. Charles: Am l? Henrietta: You see, you're turning into a kind of serial monogamist. One girlfriend after another, yet you never really let anyone near you. On the contrary... You're affectionate to them and sweet to them. Even to me, although you thought I was an idiot. Charles: I did not. Henrietta: You did. I thought U2 was a type of submarine. Charles: In a way, you were right. Their music has a naval quality. Henrietta: Be serious, Charles. Give people a chance. You don't have to think 'I must get married', but you mustn't start every relationship thinking 'I mustn't get married'. Charles: Most of the time I don't think at all. I just potter along. Henrietta: Charlie! Oh, God! The way you used to look at me! I just misread it, that's all. I thought you were going to propose and you were just working out how to leave.

I remember the first time I saw Gareth on a dancefloor. I feared lives would be lost.

I think we both missed a great opportunity here.

In the name of the father, the son and the holy goat. Eh... ghost.

It's hell out there. Matthew's trapped with an evangelist from Minnesota.

Ladies and gentlemen, I'm sorry to drag you from your delicious desserts.
There are just one or two little things I feel I should say, as best man. This is only the second time l've been a best man. I hope I did OK that time. The couple in question are at least still talking to me. Unfortunately, they're not actually talking to each other. The divorce came through a couple of months ago. But l'm assured it had absolutely nothing to do with me. Paula knew Piers had slept with her sister before I mentioned it in the speech. The fact that he'd slept with her mother came as a surprise, but I think was incidental to the nightmare of recrimination and violence that became their two-day marriage.
Anyway, enough of that. My job today is to talk about Angus. There are no skeletons in his cupboard. Or so I thought. I'll come on to that in a minute. I would just like to say this. I am, as ever, in bewildered awe of anyone who makes this kind of commitment that Angus and Laura have made today. I know I couldn't do it and I think it's wonderful they can.
So, back to Angus and those sheep.

Matthew

Matthew: Sorry we're so late. The others are just parking the car, I thought we'd all go with Tom. Charles: Late? So late? Matthew: Yeah. It's 9:45. Charles: 9:45? Matthew: Yep. 45 minutes until "I do".

Oh, I don't know, Charlie. Unlike you, I never expected "the thunderbolt." I always just hoped that, that I'd meet some nice friendly girl, like the look of her, hope the look of me didn't make her physically sick, then pop the question and, um, settle down and be happy. It worked for my parents. Well, apart from the divorce and all that.

Scarlett

Scarlett: [At wedding one, the bride walks down the aisle] Isn't she beautiful? Fiona: Scarlett, you're blind, she looks like a big meringue.

Serena: Excuse me? points out Charles's brother, who is talking to Charles in sign language Who's the boy over there? In the grey? Matthew: Name's David. Serena: watching David admiringly He's something of a dish, isn't he. Matthew: I've always thought so. Serena: Why are they... why are they...? mimicking the sign language Matthew: Oh, the dish can't hear. Serena: Gosh... Matthew: Yeah. Silent, but deadly attractive.
