      • Miss Brahms: Think of the fun we could have, not having to come to work any more.
        Mr Humphries: I'd spend all in day in my garden, tending it and trying out my gnomes in new positions.

      • Mrs Slocombe: (about her forced retirement) They'll never get anyone with my experience in underwear!

      • Mr Rumbold: This is our Mr Humphries, who's head of the men's counter.
        Miss Featherstone: We've never met, but I know of him by reputation.
        Mr Humphries: Yes, it tends to travel in front of me.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Although this is the first episode shown in the tenth series, it was the final episode taped.

        For the tenth season, all episodes were taped in the summer of 1984 but were not shown until the late winter and early spring of 1985 due to a strike at the BBC.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Mr Humphries: A handbag?

        This simple line by Mr Humphries in drag gets a huge laugh because the audience recognizes the reference to Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. In that play Lady Bracknell, the aged head of a noble family, reacts in horror when she discovers that her niece's fiancé was found as a baby in a handbag at Victoria Station.
