The ceremony over it is time for the speeches. Laura's father Nigel gives a measured, well-received one. Paul is nervous and halting, not helped by Laura's vicious asides about his homosexuality. Last to go is Steve, who tries too hard to be funny and annoys some of the guests. It is also just his bad luck that Laura chooses to walk out of the room during his contribution after making nasty remarks to Paul, who follows soon after.
