*looks up from paper, shakes head bemusedly*

About time we repaired the decor.  But, I'm not one hundred percent sure of that color choice...should take it up with the Board...

Incidentally, why are we all fixing our own drinks?  What we need isn't just a doorman, but a barkeep.  Where has all the good help gone?

*gazes morosely at vegetables and cheese, and their lack of opposable thumbs*

I don't think those will help with that problem.

I respectfully suggest that you not read the back page.  It's especially boring...

Dangerous?  How?  Turns out it's riddled with secret hiding places and escape routes.  No wonder the Realtors want it; they want to concoct their own nefarious schemes here!  Never!

*has a thought*

Oh no!  Doesn't one of those passages lead to the ladies' tea room?  We have to block that quick...don't want those monsters getting in there...

<Strikes Forehead with palm in theatrical despair>

The standards in this place are slipping by the hour! Not only are we assaulted by the  "Realtors from Outer Space" and infested by Females, now we have to put up with blasphemous Pratchett quotes! I shall compose a letter of complaint to the club secretary this instant, I distinctly remember that Club rules limit the intoning of the Holy Words of the Master to alternate Thursdays. Today, being a Wednesday, we are strictly limited to the scholarly works of Robert Rankin for our quotation needs. Cease and desist woman, lest you be banished to Penge! (I've never been there myself, but I've heard it's a nice place.)

Dead in here. We're having mimosas and petit fours for tea if anyone's interested.

Well, gentlemen, I feel it is my duty to make sure that the ladyfolk are not accosted by Realtors next door, seeing as during a half-naked drunken pillow fight they may not be in top form to defend themselves... yeah, that's it.  So if anyone needs me...  *enters the secret passage*
