Blanche Hunt: "Like Postman Pat do yer?"
Simon Barlow: "It's me favourite."
Blanche Hunt: "Really? So long as you remember it's a work of fiction - 'Early in the morning. When the day is dawning' - Yer real Postman Pat rolls up about noon wearing a pair of shorts and his breakfast... and, if he's not chucking elastic bands like confetti, he'll be rifling through your birthday cards for ready cash. Or... leaving yer valuables out on the step."
Ken Barlow: "Blanche!"
Blanche Hunt: "He's entitled to the truth - nowt but propaganda is this. And as for Mrs Goggins - she'll be cowering behind three inch glass with a baseball bat under the counter, assuming that her Post Office hasn't been shut down, of course."
