Kenny McLeod: Harriet, maybe it’s not working out, this living together.
Harriet: What are you talking about?
Kenny McLeod: Well, there’s not a lot of space here and with me working at home and all…
Harriet: Are you dumping me?
Kenny McLeod: No, I’m just saying I don’t think we should live together.
Harriet: My God. This is extraordinary. We’re having our first row, and you’re dumping me. You bastard! How dare you abuse me like this, Kenny McLeod you misogynistic brute! Women born after 1985 don’t put up with this sort of shit! Ever!
