Tie Up The Biggest Loose End

The Cherry plot strand from the start should surely figure in the last 30 seconds. Not only does the 11th rule of comedy state that you have to tie up every such hanging storyline but it enables Ian to take centre stage. Perhaps something like:

DAWN
It's over. We did it. All the siblings thoroughly ticked off. That's a victory.

IAN
Not all.

DAWN
All the ones we wanted to find, though. We've done something important and now it's over. Finished. Done. Finitio. I'm going back to Coventry. I've got to go home. The time is right.

IAN
Yes. That's what you've been saying since Calais.

DAWN
You're coming with me like you said? There's my box-room with your name on it.

IAN
Dawn, thank you, but no. I said yes before but now I just said no. I'm going to continue the search.

DAWN
You what? Alone?

IAN
With, er, Cherry. In her car.

CHERRY
Dawn, we'll take it from here. We've already got a plan. Scotland for Wim Pelvus and back to Looe for Bibi Muntz. Thanks for your help and goodbye.

DAWN
No way. No bloody way. I'm coming with you.

IAN
Cherry's car has only got two seats.

DAWN
I thought you had a Cherry?

CHERRY
No, that's just my name. I've got a Honda.

DAWN
I'll follow. Michael? Pack up. We're following a Honda to Scotland. You can sit in the front if you like.
