And we're back. We took a trip to Paris at the end of February. We've also gained a new correspondent-E from Germany has graciously contributed new transcripts. So check back every other day for fresh quips.

Here's Richard's take on Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles's upcoming royal wedding in Britain.

Richard: Now, weddings are often elaborate events, steeped in cultural traditions.

Monita: Yes, yes, they are.

Richard: Good, we agree on that! Now, couples often try to put their own personal stamp on their special day.

Monita: Well, how can a bride and groom express dedication to the environment as well as each other? Mallika Kapur takes us behind the scenes of an eco-wedding.


Monita: I think that's quite admirable, I think it's very nice, I mean, they're doing their bit in their own little way.
Richard: Fine. I was going to talk to you about the royal wedding.
Monita: Well go on then.
Richard: April the 8th. CNN will have full coverage, we're hoping to be live in Windsor, where the wedding is taking place. Now, now, this more interesting stuff.
Monita: Oh, sure. Yeah.
Richard: We'll be live, we might even be there for CNN Today, when the ceremony takes place, which we won't see, and then we'll be seeing them afterwards. Well, I mean, we won't be seeing them, I mean –
Monita: I think we understand. I think it's a great, I think it'll be a great show, it'll be a great time for them.
Richard: A SHOW?! A great show? It's a wedding!
Monita: Yeah, but come on, everyone's going to be watching, so at the end of the day it's going to be a great show. I mean, not necessarily for them, but for everyone else.
Richard: [Juggles imaginary items and sings the circus theme] It's not a show, it's a wedding!
Monita: All right, well, let's hope we have some good weather for them [transition to weather]
