Notable dialogueEdit

Ken Barlow: "It seems to me that Baldwin's only got to snap his fingers and the women of this household behave like idiotic infatuated adolescents. I don't understand it. A little weasel like that!"


Susan Barlow: “Mike and Deirdre?”
Ken Barlow:  “Tried to take her from me, and he nearly did. All in the name of what he calls love. The word that springs to his lips as easily as his smile. It’s not what I call love, Susan. That’s the man that I want you to stop seeing!”
