Notable dialogue[]

Alec Gilroy (about Raquel Wolstenhulme): "She's always washing things out and hanging them up to dry, you know. She leaves her shoes where you'll fall over them. Also, I think she must be moulting - there's hairs everywhere. I opened the fridge this morning Jack, she's got her tights in there. She reckons it stops 'em laddering. And the scent... it's everywhere. Between 'er and Bet, my nasal passages are in rags... absolute rags!"
