Alex: Rupert, you getting so excited about the news that there
could one day be a gene therapy to reverse the ageing
process... I mean it's just ridiculous...
Rupert: Oh, easy for you to say, Alex... You've still basically got
your youth... You can't imagine what a development like
this coming on the market might mean to someone of my
age... I've got a totally different perspective... What 'til
you've reached the other end of your working life like me and
you're wrinklied and your hair is thinning and going white...
You see you don't appreciate what you've got until you're faced
with its loss...
Alex: What, your automatic cushy status as a "grey hair" at client
meetings who doesn't have to do any work?
Rupert: Quite... And if I stayed old-looking everyone would think I
was too poor to afford the treatment... Eek! Hell! Blooming
research should be banned.
