Presenter: You have a new theory about the vector?

Martin: Can I just say here Chris that I have a new theory about the

P: Exactly. (He gestures but Martin does not say anything).  What is it?

M: Where? (looks round)

P: No, no your new theory.

M: Oh, what is my theory.

P: Yes.

M: Oh what is my theory that it is.  Well Chris you may well ask me
   what is my theory.

P: I _am_ asking.

M: Good for you.  My word yes.  Well Chris, what is it that it is --
   this theory of mine.  Well this is what it is -- my theory that I
   have, that is to say, which is mine, is mine.

P: (beginning to show signs of exaspiration) Yes, I know it's yours,
   what is it?

M: Where?  Oh, what is my theory?  This is it. (clears throat at some
   length) My theory that belongs to my is as follows (clears throat
   at great length) This is how it goes.  The next thing I'm going to
   say is my theory.  Ready?

P: Yes.

M: My theory by M. Elk.  Brackets Sir, brackets.  This theory goes as
   follows and begins now.  Vectors are just like lists only they have
   a longer name and the names of their accessors are not the least
   weird.  That is my theory, it is mine, and belongs to me and I own
   it, and what it is too.

P: That's _it_, is it?

M: Spot on, Chris.

P: Well, er, this theory of yours appears to have hit the nail on the

M: And it's mine.

P: Yes, thank you very much for coming along the list.  Thank you.

M: My pleasure Chris...

P: Next week Guile's newest rats nest...

M: It's been a lot of fun.

P: Yes, thank you very much.

M: Saying what my theory is.

P: Yes, thank you.

M: And whose it is.

P: Yes, thank you -- that's all -- thank you .... collapses next week.

M: I have another theory.

P: Yes.

M: Called my second theory, or my theory number two.

P: Thank you.  Guile's newest rats nest...

M: This second theory which was the one that I had said...

P: (the phone rings; he answers) Yes, no I'm trying...

M: Which I could expound without doubt.  This second theory which,
   with the one which I have said, forms the brace of theories which I
   own and which belong to me, goes like this...
