Kenneth Williams: [about Barbara Windsor in Carry on Spying] I wouldn't confide this to a reprobate like you, were it not bound to frustrate you beyond all reason, but she was a good enough kisser to give me the half hard.
Sid James: You're joking?
Kenneth Williams: Mmmm. The perverse pneumatics of desire never cease to astonish. Hasn't happened to me since Jim Dale went down the stairs on that hospital trolley.

Sid James: [about Ronnie Knight, Barbara's first husband] He knocks about with the Krays, doesn't he?
Barbara Windsor: No he doesn't. I do.

Kenneth Williams: Garbo was shot through a gauze, you know. I should be shot through a gauze.

Sid James: A leopard cannot change its spots.
Barbara Windsor: No, but it can have its balls cut off.

Sid James: I'm an actor, mate.

Sid James: Well, so have I.
Kenneth Williams: I have read a book.
[Sid looks down at his feet]
Kenneth Williams: I have sat on the steps of the Colosseum and debated the nature of man with Sophocles, I have.
[Kenneth farts]
Barbara Windsor: Kenny!
Sid James: Bloody hell.
Barbara Windsor: Honestly! How do you expect to maintain a decent working relationship with people I have no idea.
Kenneth Williams: Rudolph Valentino was a farter. His leading ladies never complained.
Barbara Windsor: They were silent films!
Kenneth Williams: I consider it one of my more singular accomplishments that I can display an uncommon degree of eloquence from both ends...
[He farts again]
Kenneth Williams: ... simultaneously!

Kenneth Williams: There comes a time in every man's life when he can no longer snog young women without appearing something of a dirty old sod, a benchmark you passed in the late 1950s.
Sid James: That is charming.
Kenneth Williams: You've got a very grubby image.
Sid James: At least I haven't got a grubby Moroccan sex life.
Kenneth Williams: Oh yes, go on. Throw your little stones from the ruined greenhouse of your own sad lechery. By all means pronounce judgement on diving splinter of my sexual proclivities if you can catch sight of it through the Epping Forest of your own lustful eye.
Sid James: It's unnatural for a man to fancy other men.
Barbara Windsor: Kenny doesn't fancy other men, he fancies himself. Other men are just the next best thing.

Sidney Balmoral James: Marvelous isn't it. I can't wait to get into my pointed Italian two tones and off down the high street. Makes you feel like a king. Clean dicky dirt, new Peckham, pair of luminous almond rocks, new whistle, nice crease in my strides, Barnet well greased up and flashing my Hampsteads at all the bona palodes.
