„The same procedure as last year“ Zum Mitsprechen: Der Dialog zu „Dinner for One“

Von Christopher Bredow | 30.12.2015, 22:52 Uhr

 Dinner for One: Der Sketch „Der 90. Geburtstag oder Dinner for One“ mit Miss Sophie und Butler James ist zu Silvester seit Jahrzehnten Kult. Der lustige Dialog zwischen Miss Sophie und James versüßt jedes Jahr wieder neu den Jahreswechsel. Wir haben den Text von „Dinner for One“ zum Mitlesen und Mitsprechen.

In „Der 90. Geburtstag oder Dinner for One“ feiert Miss Sophie (May Warden) ihren 90. Geburtstag. Dazu hat sie ihre Freunde eingeladen, die inzwischen allerdings alle verstorben sind. So sitzt sie alleine an der langen Tafel und wird von Butler James (Freddie Frinton) bedient – der zudem auch die Rollen der Gäste übernimmt und für sie mittrinkt. Im 11-minütigen Sketch sorgt James damit für einige Lacher. Rund um Silvester zeigen die dritten Programme den Kultsketch mehrmals im Fernsehen.
