Notable dialogueEdit

Granny Hopkins: "I still can't understand how Mavis managed to catch two Spaniards."
Deirdre Hunt: "Didn't you know? She puts garlic behind 'er ears."


Annie Walker: "You know my views perfectly well on the subject of your marriage, but they have no bearing whatsoever on what we're discussing now."
Billy Walker: "Oh yes, they have. Because if I was engaged to some bird from the Cheshire set and 'er mum had invited me out to Prestbury for dinner you'd be purring like a pussy cat. You still think I'm marrying beneath me, don't yer? And you can't forgive them two for it, and that's the truth."
