    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Jackie Pallo is the only guest star in the entire series who gets a round of applause by the studio audience as he walks onto the stage. Pallo (1926-2006) was, after all, a star of British televised wrestling.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Mrs Slocombe: Having a boil where he's got one, well, it must be painful.
        Mr Humphries: I'm sure we all feel for him.
        Mr Lucas: You speak for yourself! He's been rotten to me ever since I came here and I have had to take it sitting down.
        Miss Brahms: Well, now you've got your revenge, because he can't take anything sitting down.

      • Mr Humphries: I've never boxed in my life. Now, wrestling, that's another matter.
        Mrs Slocombe: I wouldn't have thought you were the wrestling sort.
        Mr Humphries: I was known as Hugger Humphries. They had to pull me off people. I was the 'catch as catch can' champion of the Barley Road Mixed Infants.

      • Miss Brahms: What's so special about today?
        Mrs Slocombe: Today is the day my pussy comes of age!

    • NOTES (1)

      • The gifts Mrs. Slocombe purchased for her pussy's third birthday/coming of age were: a leg of "Southern Fried" chicken, a mink collar with a bell, a record of "Lena Zeffaroni", and a clockwork mouse.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Miss Brahms likened looking for Mrs. Slocombe's clockwork mouse to Peter Pan and the crocodile due to being able to hear both creature's clockworks. (An actual clock in the croc's case.)
