      • Richie: Well done Eddie. I'm sorry I doubted you. Your plan worked brilliantly.
        Eddie: Yes. Shame about old Spurty getting shot by the Gestapo.
        Richie: No, the SPG, Eddie, the SPG. Not the Gestapo. They're completely different things. The Gestapo, er, speak German.

      • Richie: Well, well, well, wonders will never cease. Eddie Catflap's been thinking. Put out some bunting. Organise a street party. Let off some fireworks. Telephone the Queen. Give everyone a week's holiday. The man with no brain's been thinking. Everybody go to the lavatory in amazement.

      • Richie: How does it feel to know that you're a checkout girl and you've reached the peak of your potential?

        Eddie: I don't see why the Romans should get all the credit for that idea, you know. I've been doing that for years.

      • Richie: I thank you to keep your embittered, communistic treason to yourself during tonight's intercourse with Tarby and friends.

        Eddie: I'm not having any intercourse with Tarby and that's final!

        Richie: Well, what a surprise. Four minutes into the episode and Eddie Catflap delivers the most torturous double entendre in history.

      • Richie: The great public claims another weary show business victim. Oscar Wilde, playwright, arrested for his belief. Lenny Bruce, comedian, arrested for his belief. Richie Rich, celebrity, arrested ...
