    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Ann Maddox (Jack's mother) says Penny and Robert have been married for 8 months.

        Amanda Mealing stars as Jessie Christie in this episode.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • (Jack suffers from an inferiority complex where his parents are concerned)
        Jack: I sometimes feel as if I hardly know them at all...I find them rather hard to live up to.They never would impose their Fabian views but their convictions run deep. I suppose it's made me feel rather shallow over the years.

      • (Bea manages to sell Evie her new approach to the collection. All things considered, it's amazing she agreed to it)
        Bea :I know it's not practical to change course now. It would be costly, we'd need to buy new materials, extra staff and even then we could still end up with a hopelessly rushed mish mash. Or, no collection at all.
        Evie :And yet you think we should risk doing it?
        Bea :I just know we should.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Beatrice asks Constance's husband if the painting she is looking at is a Sisley. She is referring to the 19th Century French painter who was a key member of the Impressionist movement.

      • Evie is inspired to use dancers to model thier latest collection because she watched The Ballets Russes in Paris. She is referring to the company that was founded by Sergei Diaghilev in 1909. They were the first group to perform this style of ballet in the West. The British ballet, initiated by Marie Rambert, was not established until 1926, a couple of years after this episode is set. It's no wonder Evie is so taken a back by the perfomance she saw in Paris.

      • Anne says, A nation that cannot afford food and clothing for its children cannot be allowed to pass for a wealthy nation because it has provided a pretty coffin for a dog. She is quoting George Bernard Shaw's 1897 play 'The Man of Destiny'.
