“Just ignore them, they’re not worth the effort of biting. Let me take you away from all this. I have some nuts in my office if you’re hungry.”

“You’d think they’d never seen a chipmunk before. Have I ever told you how good you look in stripes?”
Jack stalked off to his office, Ianto on his shoulder, leaving the others staring after them, speechless.
