Quotes:
From "Are You Being Served?: Calling All Customers (#9.4)" (1983)
[Mrs. Slocombe has entered a story she wrote into a contest]
Mr. Rumbold: I think the heroine ought to be ten years younger to make it believable... she takes an herbal bath on nearly every page.
Mrs. Slocombe: A lot of men prefer older women. I mean, what about that Joan Collins in Dynasty.
Mr. Rumbold: Yes, but she doesn't jump into trucks at 80 miles an hour with a spanner in one hand, saying, "Hand over your smoky or I'll put the boot in."
