The walk, pushing out and the hosepipe.

1. "Do you want to go for a walk?" asks Nick as he comes in from work. I've had my face pressed up against a computer screen all day, so of course I'm keen.

2. We see violets and celandines and one pansy growing between the bricks of the pavement.

3. In a Channel 4 documentary about early film, Paul Merton shows this 49-second beauty by the Lumière Brothers -- L'Arroseur Arrosé. It's a simple conceit but it made me laugh. As Paul Merton commented, it works very well in film because it isn't the sort of gag you can easily do on stage.
