Stupid scenes from my life, volume confused boyfriend

[sitting on the sofa, watching tv with puppy]
Berian [coming in through door]: Ooh, Have I Got News For You. They must have filmed this before he died.
Me: Before who died?
Berian: Giles Coren.
Me: Why?
Berian: Well, he's on this show.
Me: Uh, that's not Giles Coren. And Giles Coren's not dead.
Berian: Oh, no, sorry. I meant what's-his-name Freud.
Me: What are you talking about? That's Gyles Brandreth.
Berian: Oh.
[there is a brief silence while show-watching takes place]
Berian: Giles Coren is dead though.
Me: No, he's not.
Berian [slipping into man-explaining-to-silly-girl voice]: No, Giles Coren is actually dead.
Me: Since when?
Berian: Since quite a few years ago.
Me: The bloke who writes twatty restaurant reviews for The Times? No, he isn't.
Berian: Oh! No! Alan Coren! Alan Coren is dead!
Me: [merciless piss-taking]
