Notable dialogueEdit

Tracy Barlow: "So when's the party then? You know, to celebrate? Isn't that the trendy thing to do these days? I expect you'll even get cards... 'To Ken and Deirdre, Congratulations on your divorce!'"


Vera Duckworth: "I've just seen our Jack... in a hearse... a big, black one."
Curly Watts: "Well they usually are... Look Vera, are you taking anything?"
Vera Duckworth: "Certainly not! I mean, I know me mother - God rest her soul - nicked a few tins of salmon off Alf Roberts, but I mean she were getting on a bit."
Curly Watts: "No, no. I meant in the way of medications... pills. I read somewhere that hormone replacement is very popular amongst women of a certain age."
Vera Duckworth: "I'm not taking so much as an aspirin. And I'm not hallucinating if that's what yer thinking. I do know when I see me own husband in a hearse."
