  • Quotes

    • Hyacinth: [After talking on the phone with Onslow] Oh, I hate talking to Onslow when he's only wearing a vest.

    • Hyacinth: [Talking about Onslow] I can't imagine why Daisy married him. You play together as children and have all the strange childish fears about monsters - little do you dream that your sister's going to grow up to marry one.

    • Hyacinth: [Phoning Daisy's house] Oh, it's you, Onslow, how are you? [Pauses while he answers] You needn't go into detail. This is merely an inquiry after your general health.

    • Richard: (referring to Daisy showing up at the church on a motorbike with the 17-year-old) Onslow, I don't want to be personal, but… at the church hall just now… wasn't that Daisy?
      Onslow: Daisy?
      Richard: Your wife.
      Onslow: Oh, that Daisy.
      Richard: Didn't you think it was… funny?
      Onslow: I suppose I did, really. I never knew she liked motorbikes.

    • Daisy: Suppose I just have to conclude that Onslow doesn't love me.
      Rose: Maybe underneath he loves you.
      Daisy: Underneath what? He's got practically nothing on.

    • (Onslow's watching TV)
      Daisy: Onslow, I'm trying to tell you, your wife is in love with a 17-year-old!
      Onslow: That's disgusting, that is. Interrupting a bloke's prime time viewing. Anybody we know?
      (Daisy brings in Rose and the 17-year-old)
      Onslow: (looking at the 17-year-old) I thought he belonged to Rose?
      Daisy: He did… but they found they weren't compatible.
      Rose: Oh, he's nice enough. We just weren't compatible.
      Onslow: How old is he?
      Daisy: 17!
      Onslow: Is he old enough to smoke?
      (the 17-year-old takes out a pack and gives a cigarette to Onslow)
      Onslow: Oh, ta.
      17-Year-Old: Keep the pack.
      Onslow: (taking the pack) Oh, cheers! (to Daisy) Do you think you can keep him interested 'til he's old enough to drink?

    • Richard: (after Hyacinth gets a tie on him) I feel a bit overdressed.
      Hyacinth: I will not have you out there gardening with your shirts wide open. Next thing you know, you'll be looking like Onslow.
      Richard: Sometimes you have to admire Onslow's relaxed attitude to life.
      Hyacinth: Onslow's idea of what to do with a garden is to abandon an old car in it.
      Richard: But he enjoys life.
      Hyacinth: Exactly! What kind of irresponsibility is that?

    • Hyacinth: Just a minute, where are you going, Richard?
      Richard: You wanted the roses deadheaded.
      Hyacinth: Aren't we forgetting something?
      Richard: I kissed you good morning. Didn't I kiss you good morning?
      Hyacinth: It's not that, dear. You're not wearing a tie.
      Richard: I-I-I'm gonna deadhead the roses.
      Hyacinth: I will not have you standing out in the street half-dressed. We have a social position to maintain.
