Elaine Brunken quotes the classic Glasgow ritual of asking someone
to dance and being accepted as:
> "Ye dancin'?"
> "Ye askin'?"
> "A'm askin' "
> "A'm Dancin'"

There is also the version declining further discussion:
"Ye dancin'?"
"Naw, it's jist the wey ah'm staunin'"

Not a TV show though, Elaine. This was around long before TV - I am
reliably informed :)
