    • Elaine: There's a patient waiting.

      Elaine: Hello! I've come from Delabole. There's no point going and then coming back later. I may as well start now, inn it.

    • Doc Martin: Right. You, hold this and shut up. You, get off the phone and find the stopcock and you, either go back to Delabole, wherever that may be, and don't come back, or go and find a mop and work out how to use it.

      Doc Martin: What.

    • Aunt Joan: If you wanted a chocolate-box village, go to the Isle of Wight. This is a real place.
