Annie Walker: “I’m well aware dear. Mrs Ogden would try the patience of Job himself, but I would have expected Mrs Howard to show a little more restraint. A woman of breeding does not bend to insults. She can make her point quite effectively without ever raising her voice. My Jack knew that.”
Betty Turpin: “I bet he did!”
