  • Quotes

    • Hyacinth: How do you know he's having an affair, dear? Now, look, you can't ruin a perfectly good marriage and jeopardize your Mercedes on account of some unfounded suspicions.

    • Hyacinth: [To insurance salesman] I do like firms that employ people who wear hats. It's very reassuring to be solicited by a gentleman wearing a hat.

    • Daisy: [Reading a book] What's "limpid" as in "He gazed into her limpid eyes"? L-I-M-P-I-D.
      Onslow: Limpid eyes?
      Daisy: That's what it says here.
      Onslow: Almost certainly a disease of the retina. Little scabs on the retina. You get it from reading too many library books and ignoring close relatives who are dying for a cup of tea.

    • Hyacinth: Try not to make a noise in the bathroom, Richard.
      Richard: Was I making a noise?
      Hyacinth: Look, I don't wish to dwell on it, dear, but it's always been a principle of mine that bathrooms should be seen and not heard.

    • Mrs. Councillor Nugent: (while wearing sunglasses) I can't see a damn thing! Mrs. Bucket? Mrs. Bucket?!
      Hyacinth: (barely audible) It's Bouquet!
