      • Jean: We never used to go on anywhere.
        Lionel: We didn't have any money to go on anywhere.
        Jean: That's true. I knew I should've stuck to that millionaire.
        Lionel: What millionaire?
        Jean: I forget his name now; Getty or something like that.

      • Jean: What would you've done if we had been offered a house then?
        Lionel: Panicked, probably.

      • Mrs. Bale: (to Jean) But organization is not their strongpoint. They didn't finish the war memorial until 1961.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Jean: (after Lionel) Quisling!

        This refers to Vidkun Quisling, a Norweigan fascist, major, and Minister President until the end of World War II. He held an analagous position to Hitler's. He announced the Germany's overtaking Norway on a news report. He was eventually convicted and executed as a traitor.

      • Sandy: I don't want to play gooseberry

        Gooseberry is slang for an extra person, almost like a chaperone on a date.

      • Jean mentions the Jarrow Marchers, and Lionel correctly remembers them being shipbuilders, but they were also miners.

        The Jarrow Marchers were 200 unemployed men, during England's Depression (specifically 1936), and they marched to Parliment to air their grievances, through representatives. The PM at the time refused to see them or their representatives.
