RICHARD CURTIS: This plot with Andrew and Keira and Chiwe is in some ways the kind of model for what the film was meant to be. l always said that I wanted it to have ten good beginnings, ten good middles and ten good ends. And in fact they've really only got three scenes. They got the weddingthe beginningand then they've got the scene where she goes to his house to see the videothe middlethen they've got the scene with the cardswhich is the end. And that was sort of the idea, that you'd fillet out all the unnecessary stuff in films. And this is the one remaining little extra scenelet.Now let's skip over to the offices of Fairtrade, where Harry is admonishing Sarah over her hesitation to make a move on the delectable Karl. (Really, he's magically delicious.)
HUGH GRANT: l think it could go. [LAUGHTER]
CURTIS: Hugh, you appear to have misunderstood what we're doing here. The film's finished and that's why we're commenting on it.
GRANT: Well, you say that. lt's not out yet.
CURTIS: Will this be one example where the director's cut is actually shorter?
GRANT: We should have a Hugh's cut.
PM: I'm sorry your wife couldn't make it, by the way.
PRESIDENT: So it she. Although she would have been kind of lonely, I'm sure.
PM: Yes, pathetic, isn't it. Just never been able to tie a girl down. I'm not sure politics and dating really go together.
PRESIDENT: Really? I've never found that.
