       "The 39 Schleps" : same as the idea but after midnight when the buses have stopped running.
FlyingToaster, Jan 09 2017

       What's a "bus"?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 09 2017

       It's one of those charabancs you use for shooting parties, often though with not so much champagne, sloe gin and shotguns on board.
hippo, Jan 09 2017

       // with not so much ... shotguns //   

       Try the No. 118 after about 2130 ... then again, 92Fs and TEC-9s are more the current fashion.

       Or the Tube..... "Train to nowhere" Savoy Brown.
xenzag, Jan 09 2017

       Or on Southern Region …

       BRYAN FERRY LYRICS "The 39 Steps"   

       Your place or mine What do you want from me And is there time?   

       Where do we go from here I wish I knew Getting too hot to bear Let's keep it cool   

       Where do we go from here I'm in the mood Living on borrowed time Let's make a move   

       Don't ask me why My heart is breaking Don't get me wrong this time Trouble in mind I'm tired of wanting Some other spring some time   

       Don't ask me why My heart is yearning Don't get me wrong this time Trouble in mind My heart is breaking Some other spring some time....

       [8th] my old herring sandwich, could you perhaps clarify which aspects of this idea were not invented solely to satisfy a pun?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 11 2017

       We'll get back to you on that.
8th of 7, Jan 11 2017

       Where stop are you at right now - Mornington Crescent ?
normzone, Jan 11 2017

       Monument (for Bank).   

       You don't get us in Nidd that easily ... we know that Clebb's Gambit forbids successive parallels.
8th of 7, Jan 11 2017

       Not if you've played a Stoker's Treble in the last 10 moves it doesn't.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 11 2017

       Oh yes!
po, Jan 11 2017

       Meet for a pint up the junction?
po, Jan 11 2017

       Calls for a half con!
po, Jan 11 2017

       I hope that's a euphemism.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 11 2017

po, Jan 11 2017

       Bets 8th chickens out
po, Jan 11 2017

       A pint up the junction.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 11 2017

       Mb yes
po, Jan 11 2017

       Come on 8th it would be great!
po, Jan 11 2017

       Yes, well, we haven't. If you had been following the game, you'd realise we started from Mile End on the Central line, subsequently changing at Euston Square for Green Park. Even Sven couldn't fault that one.   

       We ain't frit. Name the date and time, [po]. We'll see your pint, and raise you a Party Four keg of Watneys Red Barrel ....
8th of 7, Jan 11 2017

       From what I hear of [8th] you're more likely to get a small one up Artillery Passage.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 11 2017

       <Eric Morecombe>   

       "Arsenal !"   

       </Eric Morecombe>
8th of 7, Jan 11 2017

       Anywhere on the northern line. Pick your date. xx
po, Jan 11 2017

       //If you had been following the game, you'd realise we started from Mile End on the Central line//   

       I see. Well, then, that would be fine unless we were playing with Stavendish's "pikes and garter" rules. Oh wait - we are. Nobody like a bad loser, [8th].
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 11 2017

       // Pick your date //   

       Gillian Anderson. What about the details for meeting ?   

       // Oh wait - we are. Nobody like a bad loser, [8th]. //   

       Ah, but we played our Joker when we crossed the Circle line ... so there.
8th of 7, Jan 11 2017

       You played your Joker? In the presence of a lady??? Sir, I bite my thumb at thee.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 11 2017

       Po, - anywhere in mind? (Pref on the side of the Thames that has trains, that work).
Ian Tindale, Jan 11 2017

       How about 'Cask'? (see link)
hippo, Jan 12 2017

       Right, that does it...
