Patricia Routledge plays Hyacinth Bucket, a woman who pretends to be upper-class but isn't. To align herself with Britain's top ten percent, Hyacinth insists her surname is pronounced "bouquet." Her attention to cleanliness, candlelight suppers, and a desire to sing gives pain to her husband Richard and their neighbors.
|Season 5 / Episode 10: - The Hostess|
Onslow: I don't remember tearing your dress off. Are you sure you were with me?
Daisy: Do you mind?
Onslow: I don't usually tear your dress off.
Daisy: I've noticed.
Onslow: You've usually got it off before I get through the door. Heh heh heh!
Daisy: It was one of Rose's engagement parties! Yeah.
Onslow: Well that doesn't narrow it down much. Your Rose has had more engagement parties than I've had bags of crisps.
Rose: I heard that!
|Season 5 / Episode 9: - The Rolls Royce|
Rose: Why is Onslow reading the Financial Times?
Onslow: I like to keep an eye on the economy. A bloke in my position has to wonder how long the country can afford him. If we don't get the economy right, people like me are gonna be in trouble! It's the duty of all of us to be concerned about the shrinking pound.
Daisy: And when I married him, I thought he was just a sex symbol.
