Jerzy Balowski: I'm not really foreign, you know. I just do it to appear more sophisticated. I mean, nobody'd buy Evian water if it was called Blackburn water, would they? Nobody'd wear Kicker boots if they were made in Scunthorpe! Abba? Abba, Swedish? I knew then when they were a Lancashire clog dancing trio! Arthur, Betty, Boris and Angela! Solzhenitsyn, Solzhenitsyn? A former pipe-fitter welder from Harrogate!

"The Young Ones: Boring (#1.3)" (1982)
