Episode Quotes

Richard: [repeated line, regarding Mrs. Fortescue] She's lethal with that stick!
Hyacinth: Now, conversation: what do you usually talk about in the car?
Richard: Well, I think you'll find that usually you talk and I listen.
Hyacinth: [pause] Then let's not tamper with a winning system.
Hyacinth: Watch the cyclist.
Richard: I'm watching the cyclist.
Hyacinth: She shouldn't be riding a bicycle wearing skirts as short as that.
Hyacinth: [Richard is looking over to the side] Keep your eyes on the road, dear.
Richard: [looking in the rear-view mirror] But you just told me to watch the cyclist.
Hyacinth: Just watch the road.


  • Goof (continuity error): When Richard parks his car in front of the pub the right side of the car is over the line. The next time you see the car it is within it's lines.
