    • QUOTES (5)

      • Judge: May we continue?


        Hancock: Yes, by all means. You carry on, mush.

      • Hancock: Don't do that, please. I was just working up to a crescendo then. Never interrupt anybody when they're getting up to a crescendo! It can be very nasty.

      • Hancock: Does Magna Carta mean nothing to you? Did she die in vain?

      • Hancock: Ladies and gentlemen, we are gathered here today to sit in judgement of a fellow human being, but before we have the temerity - nay! audacity - to take it upon ourselves to judge another, surely we must first judge ourselves! Are there any of us so pure in our own personal wives - lives - that we can dispassionately - nay! objectively - nay! dispassionately - judge another, and therefore I submit ...
        Member of the Jury: Oh, get on with it.

      • Sid James: Let's have a game of cards.
        Hancock: Put those things away! We're here to decide whether that poor wretch out there is innocent or guilty.
        Sid James: Oh, let's cut for it and get off home - anything under a seven, he's guilty.

    • NOTES (1)

      • The episode is a satire on the Reginald Rose play of the same name. That piece started as a live television play in 1954. It was turned into a film starring Henry Fonda in 1957.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Hancock describes the proceedings as 'just like The Verdict is Yours'. This television show, which ran from 1958 until 1963 in England, showed fictional trials. The judge, lawyers, witnesses and accused were played by actors. The studio audience decided on the verdict.
