Are you the demolition man?
You’re the top boss, yeah?
Go ahead, what’s the tact?

You want it blown up?
Can you blow it up, or knock it down?
Whatever you want done.
I’ll blow it up, that would be better. Can you make sure that all my
teachers are in there when you knock it down?
Don’t know if you’ll get away with that now.
Nobody likes them – they give me extra homework on a Friday and
Where are you calling from?
What school in Dublin?

Is this a demolition company or a joe-k factory?
It’s a joe-k factory at the minute... It’s a joe-k factory.
Listen, are you gonna come and knock my school down or what?
Can you FAX me through a photograph or a site plan, or something.
Right, I’ll FAX you through a plan of the school and my teacher’s names.
Yeah – no problem, yeah.
And you just make sure that they’re all in the building when you knock it
You put all their names on it – I’ll give you a page for each individual

It will make a big bang.
Sounds good. Oh listen, I’ll talk to you later, top man.
