    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • In 1945 Parkie was 21. (See episode 21 Today) Yet there is no mention of this on his birthday cake or during the radio broadcast from his mother.

      • Beaumont: They'll want us to do extracts from the show. It stands out a mile.

        This could be an inside joke. The radio sequel to Croft & Perry's Dad's Army was called It Stands Out A Mile and was co-written by Michael 'Captain Ashwood' Knowles.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Captain Ashwood: (smelling an envelope) This is from Fiona. She wrote it on Wednesday.
        Colonel Reynolds: How do you know? Does she use different perfumes for every day of the week?
        Captain Ashwood: No, she does the bathroom on Wednesday. It's Jeyes Fluid.

      • Parkin: My mum's cakes were always terrible. My dad used to feed them to the ducks and then watch them sink.

      • Sergeant Major: (listening to Lofty without seeing him) When you hears him, he's a handsome, six-foot tenor. When you sees him, he's a little, fat mushroom. I mean, he's known round these parts as the Singing Coconut.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Captain Ashwood wants the broadcast to resemble the modern crazy shows with catchphrases like 'Can I do you now?' That phrase came from It's That Man Again or ITMA, the weekly comedy show with Tommy Handley that premiered in 1939.

      • When the men discuss the importance of having a public school education to get a job in the BBC, Nosher mentions Stainless Stephen. Arthur Clifford Baynes (1892–1971) was a Sheffield comedian who performed as Stainless Stephen.
