Janet and Eileen
Eileen is comforting her sister Janet, who is grieving over the death of her husband Ivor. However, her job is made quite difficult due to Janet breaking out in tears every time Eileen mentions the slightest word that reminds Janet of Ivor. At first they are simple things like penguins and a mug, but soon it continues with much more absurd things such as the name Ivor which makes Eileen cry out: Ivor! That's the name of Ivor!". And when Eileen uses the word 'Yeah', Janet cries out: "That's the word Ivor used to use, when he wanted to answer in the affirmative. When he wanted to respond in a casual manner as an alternative to a more formal 'yes'." Eileen eventually gives up.
