    That film has stood the test of time very well. Watched it with the kids’ recently and they loved it.

    WISE MAN #1: Well– well, we must see him. We have brought presents.

    MANDY: Out!

    WISE MAN #2: Gold. Frankincense. Myrrh.

    MANDY: Well, why didn’t you say? He’s over there. Sorry the place is a bit of a mess. Well, what is myrrh, anyway?

    WISE MAN #3: It is a valuable balm.

    MANDY: A balm? What are you giving him a balm for? It might bite him.

    Aww good times. RIP Terry
