      • (The servants get their first taste of radio.)
        Daisy: Oh, it's beautiful music.
        Mrs Bridges: Sounds more like a parrot squawking in my way of thinking.

      • Diana: No Hazel to put you off anymore.
        James: No, poor Hazel.
        Diana: Does she haunt you from the grave?
        James: No, don't worry. My memories of her are happy ones, much happier than when she was alive.

      • James: He's a splendid fellow, Edward, I must say.
        Diana: My girl is a bolshie, little stuck up bitch. The way she behaves you'd think she was the Queen of Sheba, not a draper's daughter from Kettering.

      • Richard: Hudson, who would you choose, in confidence, Mr Baldwin or Lord Curzon?
        Hudson: Lord Curzon would be my choice.
        Richard: Why, Hudson?
        Hudson: Well, mylord, Lord Curzon is more of a ... is very much a gentleman.

      • Richard: Bunny, don't do anything rash!
        Bunny: What can I do on a Sunday?

      • Richard: James, well, he's always had a deal more charm than what's good for him. And, we must face it, women like Diana, the high-spirited ones, they do need a devil of a lot of looking after.

      • Violet: There was the Prince of Wales. He was wrapped around Mrs Dudley Ward, of course.

        Mrs Freda Dudley Ward, née Winifred May Burkin (1894-1983), was the mistress of the Prince of Wales from 1918 until 1923.

      • Edward: My name's Barnes, like the bridge.

        A reference to the Barnes Railway Bridge, a bridge crossing the Thames, a prominent landmark at the closing stages of the University Boat Race.

      • In the course of this episode there is a change of Prime Ministers in the United Kingdom. Andrew Bonar Law (1858-1923) steps down due to bad health and Stanley Baldwin (1867-1947) takes over.
