Sgt. Penny: How would you know?
Sgt. Cryer: Listen, I've got someone to make an old man very happy.
[Sure enough, Maggie, along with Miss Newnham, enters the charge room]
Sgt. Penny: Oh, no!
Maggie: [to Penny] Well, if you're gonna be like that, I'll come back later. I don't mind.
Sgt. Penny: [to Miss Newnham] Salmon?
Miss Newnham: Yes, 3 tins.
Sgt. Penny: All a mistake, I suppose.
Maggie: [to Penny] Well, I wouldn't do it on purpose, would I?
Sgt. Penny: [sighs] What on earth are we going to do with you, Maggie?
Maggie: Well, you can start off, by making me a nice cup of tea.

Maggie: I could do with a cup of rose 'ere, love. I'm spittin' feathers.
Sgt. Cryer: Me too, Maggie. Me too.
