Doctor In The House (1946)

`Are you going to the nurses' hop?' I asked him. `I've just let myself in for taking the junior staff on Prudence.'
`You bet I am, old boy ! Having recovered from the excesses of Christmas Day I shall be taking old Rigor Mortis along. It's the biggest party of the year.'
I was surprised.
`Is it? I thought it was a strictly teetotal affair.'
`And so it is. You don't imagine the Matron would allow liquor to befoul the chaste floors of the Nurses' Home, do you? It's as dry as a bishop's birthday. This has the effect of making everybody get a big enough glow on beforehand to last them the night, and results in some interesting spectacles.'
On the evening of the dance Benskin and I spent an hour of determined drinking with the Padre before crossing over to the Nurses' Home to meet our partners. Benskin immediately suggested a few scoops. `Bad form to arrive too early, you know,' he explained to the girls. `People think you want to hog all the sausage rolls.' The four of us went back to the King George, which was now full of young men and young women in evening dress taking prophylaxis against a dull evening. We settled ourselves at a corner of the bar. After some time Miss Footte started looking mistily at me and stroking the back of my neck; I noticed that even Rigor Mortis, who had an apparent amnesia about the incident in the flat, was becoming mildly animated.
The first time I looked at my watch it was after ten.
`It's getting on,' I said. `Hadn't we better go?'
`Perhaps we'd better. Where's the Padre?' Benskin leaned over the bar counter. `Padre ! I say, how about a little thisand-that for the hip?' He handed a silver flask across the bar. `There's a long way to go yet.'
