This video is from the comedy The IT Crowd. Jen knows nothing about computers and boys decide to play a joke on her. They pretend that the box is the internet and Jen should present it at the bosses’ meeting.
These are the words.
What is it? / This Jen, is the internet. / What? / That’s right. / This is the internet? The whole internet? / Yep. They offer a loan of it so that you could use it in your speech.
It’s so small. / That from other surprising things about it. / Hang on. It doesn’t have any wires or anything. / It’s wireless. / Oh, yes, everything’s wireless nowadays, isn’t it? So I can really use it in my speech. What if someone needs it? / Oh, no, no. People will still be out to go online and everything. That’ll still work. / Oh, good. / I tell you. You present this to the shareholders and you will get quite a response.
Can I touch it? Oh, it’s so light. / Of course, it is, Jen. The internet doesn’t weigh anything. / Ha ha, ha ha, no, of course, it doesn’t.
Hey, what is Jen doing with the internet? / Moss said I could use it for my speech. / Are you insane? What if she drops it? / I won’t drop it. I’ll look after it. No, no no no no no, Jen, no. This, this needs to go straight back to Big Ben. / Big Ben? / Yeah, it goes on top of Big Ben. That’s where you get the best reception. / Well, I promise, I won’t let anything happen to it. / No, Jen, I am sorry. With the elders of the internet would never stand for. / No, Roy, I spoke to the elders of the internet, not one hour ago. I told them about Jen winning Employee of the Month. And they were so impressed that they wanted to do whatever they could to help.
Wait a minute, the elders of the internet, the elders of the internet know who I am? You’ve got to let me have it. / No, Jen, I am sorry. It’s just too risky. / Oh, please, Roy. / Oh, well, Moss? Has it been completely demagnetized? / By Stephen Hawking himself. He sends his congratulations, by the way. / Well, if it’s OK with the Hawk. / So, can I have it? / You can.
Oh, don’t forget your speech. / Oh, thank you. / Shh! / Slowly.
