    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Neville attempts to swim the Channel from Littlehampton to Dieppe. This means he would have to swim 100 miles, whereas a traditional swim across the Channel is from Dover to Calais, a distance of 'only' 21 miles.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Neville: His mother wanted a girl. She got four boys, so when Bobby came along, she dressed him in girl's clothes. It wasn't until he was in nursery school that he realized he was a boy. We were playing that game, you know, 'You show me yours and I'll show you mine.' He never got over the shock.

      • Neville: Littlehampton to Dieppe! It's never been done before. I can see the headlines now: Rock factory in Channel swim!
        Dorothy: (sarcastically) No survivors found.

      • Neville: Wilf, how far can you swim?
        Wilf: To the bottom.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Neville: (noticing Percy in his swimming outfit) The Man from Atlantis!

        A reference to the short-lived series starring Patrick Duffy which was airing around the time this show was produced.

      • Neville: Are you from the BBC or the other lot?
        TV Reporter: The other lot.
        Neville: Oh, well, beggars can't be choosers.

        In the seventies there were only two British television companies, the BBC and ITV. John Inman was clearly identified with the BBC because of his work on Are You Being Served. This show, his first solo sitcom, was on ITV. Neville's remark is therefore quite ironic.
