Yeah, well I don't just up to her and say "Hi, Rachel, it's me, James, the fat guy who won 2 shows in that recording back in March." Somehow, I don't think that would work. I meant she probably recognises you because she's seen your face at lots of the recordings, but as you don't speak to her that...

I was going to say I don't think she feels the same way, but she still remembers me from when I did my show, although I think she has forgotten my name which isn't too surprising, considering I only won 2 shows, but there you go. That, and the fact you've been to loads of recordings since your shows?

I can fight off Ralph's amorous advances on my own thanks, I don't need James as a bodyguard.
