Notable dialogue

Bet Lynch: "When I come here to the Rovers, it was the first time in my life I felt that I'd found a place where I finally belonged. Jobs came and went, fellas came and went. But at this old dump I felt that I'd found somewhere I could hang on to. Not just a job but a place where Bet Lynch finally amounted to summat. I suppose what it give me was some self respect."
