    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The people at 165 Eaton Place discuss the possibility of the USA entering the war. At the time of these events, shortly after New Years Day 1917, Woodrow Wilson, re-elected on a platform of not getting involved in the conflict, would soon start his second term. As he no longer had to worry about any election, he could focus more on the problems in Europe. Also, at the start of 1917, the Germans resumed unrestricted submarine warfare, something the USA had forced them to give up after the sinking of the Lusitania. These two events made the USA's entry into the war more likely.

      • Goof: Richard Bellamy leaves the drawing room and as he goes he turns down the gas lighting and shuts the door behind him. A minute or so later when he takes Edward towards the room the door is open and all the lights are blazing.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Hazel: I'm so much more worried about James this time. You see, Richard, on his last leave - for all sorts of reasons - I found a new respect for him which makes me love him so much more. I really love him.
        Richard: That's as it should be. After all, he's your husband.
        Hazel: (hesitantly) Yes.

      • (Hudson is delighted to hear that his master will become a lord.)
        Hazel: That has made his day!
        Richard: Well, it's rather made mine too.

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Hazel: Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile.

        Hazel quotes lines from the 1915 marching song "Pack Up Your Troubles", written by George Henry and Felix Powell.

      • Sir Geoffrey Dillon: In the words of that popular song, "Everybody's doing it".

        "Everybody's Doing It" was a 1911 hit for Irving Berlin.

      • Mrs Hamilton looks forward to seeing Chu Chin Chow during her visit to London. Chu Chin Chow was a musical comedy by Oscar Ache and Frederic Norton that opened on The West End in August 1916 and ran for five years, a record at that time. The name of Frederic Norton must have stuck in the scriptwriters' minds because in season five the character played by Gareth Hunt was called ... Frederick Norton.
