I was browsing through Birkin's book again last night (which I am doing rather obsessively now) and found this wonderful detail on p. 99:

"Little Mary opened. . . and . . . . [a]s usual, it contained a sprinkling of lines contributed by the boys, including a remark from Jack. When stuffing himself with cakes at tea, Sylvia had warned him, 'You'll be sick tomorrow.' 'I'll be sick tonight,' replied Jack cheerily, and went on stuffing."

So lines provided by the actual Davies boy ended up in the FN screenplay. Nice.

Interesting. You know, I haven't looked at that book since I saw the movie - I should do that!
