Notable dialogueEdit

Leonard Swindley: "We've had our little brushes from time to time over the years. Minor skirmishes in the battle of life. Due in the main, and I freely admit this, to very high standard which I've set for myself and on which I insist in others. Some people have called me finicky..."
Ena Sharples: "I've 'eard 'em."
