A friend in the U.S. sent me this with the enticing heading, "You're everywhere here!"
'Make sure you don't do anything to damage the Gristmill brand!' Wayne Hope said to me on my first day directing The Librarians. He was, of course, joking.

'Would you like any music with your MRI, Mr Hope?' asks the extremely chirpy guy from Dorevitch Health. It's not a question I expect while I’m pulling my pants off in a small hospital cubicle. 'Are you packing any titanium?' maybe, but music with my MRI? 'No, but I’ll have the rocket and pear salad.' There is silence from the other side of the cubicle. Don’t piss him off, I think, he'll be the one controlling the radiation dial in a few minutes. He eventually pipes up again. 'Mr Hope, if you could pop on the provided gown with the opening at the back and, please, leave your underwear ON.' Clearly, the underlining of 'please' and 'on' indicates there have been nasty free-balling incidents here in the past.
