Notable dialogue[]

Percy Sugden: "Army training's the best there is. When you've prepared spotted dick and custard for one-hundred-and-fifty of 'em under heavy artillery fire and not allowed one lump in that custard, you can do anything."


Betty Turpin: "I think Percy's cooking was invented to stop folks getting ideas, not give 'em them."


Mavis Wilton (to Rita Fairclough): "Yes, I mean it's your decision, your majesty! It's up to you what happens to Derek and me. We're just like your playthings - you pick us up and put us down just as it amuses you! All our hopes, all our dreams were in that shop and you have just cast them aside like yesterday's papers. Well you can find yourself another plaything, Rita Fairclough, you can find yourself another stooge - because neither Derek nor I will ever set foot in that shop again!"
