    A Common Assault describes an incident in Italy when he was mugged, and found himself trying to give a statement to the police in bad Italian. The History Boys harks back once more to Bennett's time at school, and shows how the raw material of experience was eventually transformed into the highly-acclaimed stage play The History Boys. Arise, Sir..., finishes on a light-hearted note, in which Bennett muses on the Honours List in typically iconoclastic mode.

Mit dem Verlust der Einrichtung aus zweiunddreißig Ehejahren tun sich ungeahnte Möglichkeiten auf... Mozart spielte in ihrer Ehe eine wichtige Rolle. Sie hatten keine Kinder, und ohne Mozart hätten sie sich wahrscheinlich schon vor Jahren getrennt.

    Non era rimasto nulla, niente di niente. Non solo i gioielli: i ladri si erano portati via proprio tutto, forno con arrosto, moquette, abiti e persino il rotolo della carta igienica. Un appartamento completamente ripulito è quello che si trovano di fronte i signori Ransome al rientro da una serata all'opera; un riazzeramento della vita che porta l'agiato avvocato londinese e la sua pacata signora a reazioni esilaranti e diametralmente opposte. E ancora una volta Bennett si conferma maestro del comico e dell'arte del narrare.
