The 77

"They're turning a mountain into a molehill, Bernie, they're makin' far too big a deal out of it altogether..."

"Are you sure you don't mean..."

"Exactly, Bernie, that fuckin' bitch is exaggeratin' and making stuff up and she's not even her baby..."

"But mountains, Mary..."

"That's right Bernie. Social fuckin' services she's sayin'. Social services me granny! Those children were the best behaved children in Coolock..."

"The thing is..."

"I know, you're right."

"No, the thing is..."

"What is it Bernie?"

"You MAKE a mountain out of a molehill. You don't turn a mountain into a molehill!"

"Ah jaysus! Is that what I... Ah jaysus Bernie. I'm some eejit. But that's what they're doin'. They're turnin' a mountain... Which is it again?"
