Notable dialogueEdit

Percy Sugden: "I mean, it was me that insisted on having a special committee for this anniversary. If I'd left it to that lot down at the Legion well they wouldn't have organised anything... and some of 'em have never even heard of El Alamein."
Emily Bishop: "They should live here!"
Percy Sugden: "I beg yer pardon?"
Emily Bishop: "Nothing!"
