"Bert: Now this imposin' edifice what first meets the eye, is the 'ome of Admiral Boom, late of His Majesty's Navy. Likes his house ship-shape he does. Shipe-shape and Bristol fashion at all times!
Admiral Boom: Time Gun ready?
Mr. Binnacle: Ready and charged, Sir.
Admiral Boom: Three minutes and six seconds.
Mr. Binnacle: Aye, aye, sir.
Bert: What he's famous for is punctuality. The whole world takes its time from Greenwich, but Greenwich they say, takes its time from Admiral Boom. Wotcher, Admiral!
Admiral Boom: Good afternoon to you, young man. Where are you bound?
Bert: Number 17. Got some parties 'ere in tow what wants to see it.
Admiral Boom: Enter that in the log.
Mr. Binnacle: Aye, aye, sir.
Admiral Boom: A word of advice, young man. Storm signals are up at number 17. Bit of heavy weather brewing there.
Bert: Thanks, sir. Keep an eye skinned.
[continues walking]
Bert: Here we are, 17 Cherry Tree Lane, home of George Banks, Esquire.
[screaming and shouting is heard from the house]
Bert: 'Ello, 'ello, 'ello. Admiral's right. Heavy weather brewin' at number 17 and no mistake.
