Trivia, Quotes, Notes and Allusions

Quotes (6)

  • Announcer: I'd just like to apologise to all those of you who may have noticed a drop in the quality of the transmissions. I think perhaps we're bringing too many American programmes. Detective serials, that kind of thing. And they're perhaps not as good as the English equivalent. Or perhaps we're all getting a little bit older. Or perhaps some of us are on drugs and not very perceptive.

  • Announcer: (about the new BBC drama) This programme is unusual in that it is not adapted from a well-known Victorian novel. It's actually based on some wigs left over from another production.

  • Bertha: Hello, Mrs O. How's widowhood been treating you? Mrs Overall: Oh, I mustn't grumble. I sometimes think that widowhood is God's way of telling me to come off the pill.

  • Announcer: We'd like to apologise to viewers in the north. It must be awful for them.

  • Gail: Do you know the facts of life? Carl: Some of them. Gail: Which ones do you know? Carl: Gravy, I know how that is made.

  • Kitty: Making friends is a matter of give and take. I give my friends advice and they take it. I never speak behind people's backs. If I've anything nasty to say, I pop it on a postcard.
