Holly: So today when I got home from work I found I'd been burgled!
Holly: It was as big a shock as when I found out Audrey Hepburn was Belgian!
Meridien: Wait... you found that surprising?
Holly: Yes! Yes I did! It's not like they serve crepes during Breakfast at Tiffany's!
Holly: Why does no-one else find that as surprising as me?
Oliver: Well, Holly, maybe they always knew.
Oliver: For example - what's the only two elements that are liquid at 23°C?
Holly: Bromine and mercury! Everyone knows that!
Oliver: Precisely! It's common knowledge because it's odd!
Holly: I don't think you quite get me! Her name's Audrey, not, like, Edda van Heemstra!
Oliver: Actually that was her name originally.
Holly: Once again my mind is blown!
