I was everyone from a zookeeper to Charro from The Love Boat. The several appendices to the book include the full text of the self-penned "interview" issued by Paul McCartney with the pre-release copies of his first solo album McCartneythat effectively announced the band's breakup in April ; a discography of Apple Records releases; a list of the Beatles' achievements as recording artists ; and text of several British news articles about Apple. It is, of course, the arrival of the Unidentified Guest — who later turns out to be a psychiatrist — that convinces Edward that he wants his wife, Lavinia, back, and that he should end the affair he has been conducting with Celia. As a way of patching things up, Harcourt-Reilly gets Edward and Lavinia together to discuss their marriage, and the two of them confess to their extramarital affairs Edward with Celia, and Lavinia with Peter.

Chamberlayne, a lawyer, is present at the party, along with Celia; also in attendance are their friends Julia a talkative older womanAlex a traveller who recounts a number of exotic tales of his adventures abroadPeter a screenwriterand an Unidentified Guest played by Alec Guinness in the original production. Our best cocktails for a crowd have something for every season, whether it's a summer favorite like a frozen margarita, or a fall classic like chilled cider punch. Celia tries to convince Edward to sever all ties with Lavinia and strike up a proper relationship with her instead. It is for the very well not the sick.

Edward tells her that he wants his wife back, and this confession and his explanation for it leads Celia to see him differently. Let me therefore, remain a stranger. She is already a patient. So get ready to get creative and have fun because with my method for the best way to raise a glass, everyone — the host include — can get sip their way to the best party ever! Everyone's alone — or so it seems to me. Throughout the act, he sees and consults with Edward, Lavinia and Celia.
