As Time Goes By

Episode #905

With the house to themselves for the first time in ages, Jean and Lionel reflect on their life together. Jean tries to persuade Lionel to write 'part two' of his autobiography, starting when they met again after 38 years and rekindled their romance. Lionel dismisses this idea, convinced that no one would believe the story, but Jean persists, illustrating with flashbacks how each pivotal moment, such as their meeting and his proposal, could be a chapter in the book.
