Pat: If you had won the money, what would’ve you done with it, fifty thousand?
Jack Lynch: go to New York.
Pat: Go to New York?
Pat: And what would you do there?
Jack: Erhm, learn more ’bout breakdancing
Pat: more break.. (silent)… an’ how long have you been doing that stuff?
Jack: Nearly two years now
Pat: Only two years? And you’re that good already?
Jack: (Almost silent), yeah.
Pat: Wow! (Pause). ‘Course all of the great, great breakdancers are in New York, aren’t they?
Jack: (Nods happily), yeah!
Pat. Yeah… Most of them are black as well.
Pat: What would you do? Would you put a little colour on your face?
Jack: Augh! Naah.
Pat: No. No. You’d be the greatest, the first great, great, white, breakdancer… in the world!
Jack. Hunh! Probably will be, he!
Pat: Ahh you’re a great lad, and we all loved yeah! And you were great on our show!
