    The one on the right is Richard Gere–slumming it in a catalogue shoot–and she’s embarrassed to be caught sharing the brolly with him.

    Wouldn’t _you_ be embarassed if you were snoogling in the teleporter booth and your brollies got entwined at the quantum level on the way through? For that matter have you noticed how close they’re standing together? Maybe it wasn’t just the brollies.
