  • There were many double entendres in this episode. Love the fun the cast has with the beginning of the new season.

    9.1
    Mr. Humphries is classic in this episode. He is masterminding the entire event. All of the referenences to homosexuality are great. The tux scene is splendid.



    The variety and number of outfits used for one episode is typical. Love the clothes in the beginning and end of the episode.



    Captain Peacock's behavior is typical. He tries to be the upper middle class member that he serves.



    The dialog of the cast watching the royals is great. Betty is a hoot! She is like a child in her excitement.



    The tiara that Wendy is wearing is a nice touch. It has GB for Grace Brothers in it. SHe is the princess of the store.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The long hiatus between series five and six was the result of John Inman's decision to work for ITV in a sitcom of his own, 'Odd Man Out'. Though David Croft was prepared to write Mr Humphries out of the show, the BBC wouldn't hear of 'Are You Being Served' without John Inman.

    • The tiara that Miss Shirley Brahms is wearing has "GB" outlined in it.

    • Captain Peacock's voice in the first scene is reminiscent of Donald Duck, less of a throat infection and more of helium abuse.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Miss Brahms: I have read that Royals married commoners before.
      Mrs Slocombe: Commoners, Miss Brahms, but not dead-common commoners.

    • Miss Brahms: (about her chances of attracting the attention of Prince Charles) I have read that Royals married commoners before.


      Mrs Slocombe: Commoners, Miss Brahms, but not dead-common commoners.

    • Mr. Humphries:(Apologizing for arriving for work in pastel orange clothes, explaining he has his work suit with him in a bag.) In a couple of ticks, I shall be back to my normal self, or as near as I can be.
