I'm not sure why you're choosing to pick me up right now. To be honest, I really don't want to know. You've got your problems, you've got your reasons, and I'd rather not have to sit here and have to dissect every one of your insane desires that you get in that funny head of yours after you've had a drink.

I'm not just a passing fancy. You know that. I've got my stakes stuck firmly in the sand here. Whether or not you want to try to make this happen or not is up to you. I'm not exactly keen on going anywhere.

That's the spirit! Make 'em work for it.

[She crosses her legs. Did somebody say drink?]

Although a drink does sound lovely, if you're offering, darling. Roberta. [She offers out a hand.] And you've drawn your line in the sand and are getting right grumpy about it, I'd say.

[She smiles saucily as he shakes her hand. Not quite purely professional, that. Although she is married with children. Never you mind that. But she grins wider as he speaks.]

Broadchurch? Is that anywhere near Blackpool? [innocently.] I went there on holiday once, it was lovely. [She raises an eyebrow of her own.] Why, what have you to be grumpy about, Policeman Alec Hardy?

[Oh, best not look so suspicious at her or she'll smile even wider at him. He is rather entertainingly adorable, after all.]

Mm, Dorset...I don't think I've ever been there after all. Professional criminals, Mr. Hardy? I would think the amateurs would be much< easier to catch. Or shall I start calling you Mr. Holmes, instead?

[Sorry. She's enjoying needling him. He has a nice bristle. She gets a little twinkle in her eye...and then presses her lips together for a second, studying him. She whuffs out of her nose after a second and the hard, searching look in her eye goes away, to be replaced by more charm.]

You can correct me on mistitling you but have no qualms at all passing judgements over what sort of woman I am within two hours of us meeting, hmm?

What are you looking for here? [She coughs.] ...Detective Inspector?
