Subject:        EastEnders

Apparently, there was a Shakespearean reference in the last night's
episode of the UK's most popular Soap, EastEnders. I didn't watch it
(though I'm in love with Sam -- see below) since I was watching Kings &
Queens on channel 5. I found the information in today's Guardian, and
you can find an excerpt from the article at the end of this post. (If
you would like to read the whole article, click the URL at the bottom.)

A photo of Patrick Trueman (Rudolph Walker), who made the reference in
the episode, can be found at:

A photo of Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf) is at:

A summary of the episode can be found at: though it
doesn't mention Patrick's reference to Shakespeare.

So much for EastEnders...

Best wishes,
Takashi Kozuka

Discuss with delicacy. Particularly Wayne.

(2) "There's more to life than having a big bust." (Peggy) Use graphs
graphically. Suggest something else nice in life.

(3) "What do you fancy? An egg and cress sandwich or me?" (Phil) Debate
the relative tastiness of a fat, bald bloke vis-
