    • QUOTES (4)

      • Dominic: It's an unpopular view these days, but I'm saving myself for marriage.
        Susan: That's alright, Janey likes a challenge.

      • Ben: ...and then, without warning, he gives me two fingers! Yes, two fingers! I haven't heard language as foul and obscene as that since I forgot Susan's birthday.

      • Abi: (of Roger) He's a whizz around the kitchen, yesterday he showed me how to tenderise my loins.
        Ben: I'm saying nothing.

      • Fat Hilary: (about Nick after Susan boasts he's a Chief Executive at a merchant bank) Oh, really? Couldn't tie his shoelaces when he was 10.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • People: Delia Smith and Gordon Ramsay

        Abi: We're going to see a demonstration by that cook off the telly; the one that swears like a dockside navvy.
        Ben: Oh, yeah, Delia Smith.

        Delia Smith is a renown chef who hosted a cookery show on BBC One for many years before leaving to become a director for the Norwich Canaries football (soccer) club. Her influence is so great, merely using an ingredient or implement can cause it to sell out in stores.

        Abi is really referring to Gordon Ramsay, another influencial TV chef famous for his foul temper and bad language in the kitchen.
