Under Control

Going The Distance


Fletch: If you want the system to do something for us, give us more freedom, better grub, conjugal visits!
Mr Barrowclough: Conjugal visits?
Fletch: With our old lady, like, all above board, all ship-shape and Bristol Fashion.
Mr Barrowclough: I'm not aware of any prison that does that!
Fletch: Well, maybe not here, but certainly in Holland, and also in America, I believe, where they have a more enlightened penal system anyway. They have these special apartments, where the wife comes to stay and they can manifest their long-felt want for each other.
Mr Barrowclough: You mean they spend the entire time... ?
Fletch: Conjugating, yeah.
Mr Barrowclough: That's more than I'm allowed at home!
