  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Victoria: If a gibbon could talk, it would be an attractive version of Norman. He's embraced the idea of the plunge neckline and applied it to the back of his trousers.

    • Victoria: (about Oberon, the builder) He's just not very bright. His lips move when other people are reading.

    • Victoria: The neighbours, they're a nuisance. They're sex counsellors. They bang on the bedroom wall if you're not doing it.

    • Jean: (explaing the manifesto of the Jean & Barbara Party) Libraries. More large print novels, especially Jackie Collins.
      Barbara: That's for my grandad. He likes smut and he can't focus.

    • Graham: I was in the Guides and the we went camping, and someone spotted my underpants and I was sent home. I was unpopular at boarding school because I had my mother with me. I was ostracised at Oxford.
      Reporter: Why?
      Graham: Possibly because my bike had stabilizers.
