Episode Summary

EDIT
Disturbing the Peace
AIRED:
The inmates are delighted by the apparent departure of Mackay. The delight is short-lived however, when they meet his replacement, an old 'acquaintance' of Fletcher, one, 'Napper' Wainwright. Wainwright soon despatches Barrowclough to the prison farm, because he thinks he's too soft, so the inmates stage a riot to get him back and humiliate Wainwright at the same time.moreless

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Fletcher: I'm working on this book about prison life, from the men within.
        Barrowclough: Prison life? You must be careful...
        Fletcher: Don't worry, it's all very objective. I haven't overlooked the tasks that confront you brave boys in blue and I intend to spotlight your problems just as much as the ones that confront my fellow felons.
        Barrowclough: Ah, good, splendid. And what are you going to call the book?
        Fletcher: "Don't Let The Bastards Grind You Down".

      • Williams: The frog, like me, has an enormous sexual appetite. And when the frog and his mate mate, they're at it twenty-eight days non-stop.
        Godber: Twenty-eight days?
        Williams: Non-stop!
        Fletcher: No wonder his eyes bulge out.

      • Wainwright: I'm prejudiced against liberals, longhairs, pill-heads, winos, queens, slags, squealers, pikeys and greaseballs. Are you in there, sonny?
        Fletcher: Isn't everybody?
        Wainwright: Quiet Fletcher, I was talking to the boy. I said, are you in there?
        Godber: I don't think so. I'm Church of England.

      • Fletch: He's got stripes - we'll have to hope success has mellowed him.
        Wainwright (Speaking sternly to another prisoner): Something to say to me, have you? Well my name's Wainwright; you will address me as Mr Wainwright or Sir!
        Fletch: It has.
