Fiz Brown: "Excuse me, Mr Baldwin. Well if she's Lippy and she's Bolshie and she's tea lady and she's biscuit monitor, who am I?"
Danny Baldwin: "Well you, my darling, are obviously the ex-catwalk model who fell on hard times, did a spell as a lap dancer but then got yourself a proper job. The other girls pretend to like you but behind your back they bitch about you something rotten, and that is because of their jealousy of your stunning good looks."
Fiz Brown: "Yeah, that's me!"
