Mmmm girl, you best watchya morals.

"I love England in a heat wave. It's a different country. All the rules change... you know what I mean. People are more at ease-- a couple of day's sunshine and we all become Italians..."

"It was always the view of my parents that hot weather encouraged loose morals among young people. Fewer layers of clothing, a thousand more places to meet. Out of doors, out of control. Your grandmother especially was uneasy when it was Summer. She would dream up a thousand reasons to keep my sisters and me in the house."
