Oh, sod off, West. I have known Penelope all my life, and I am not about to abandon her or conspire against her, though we may have our disagreements from time to time. You are losing your bearings, sir. You are in the grip of some raving fantasy. All the better, I say. Penelope will soon realize what a tremendous mistake it would be to marry you, and she will dump you with a sigh of relief.
I hope your "Orders" dispatch you to Afghanistan ASAP and some Taliban fanatics blow your silly ass to blazes.
I haven't got time for your rubbish right now.
