[the doctors ask how often the Fawltys can get away for a holiday, but Basil, paranoid over one of them being a psychiatrist, thinks their inquiry is about his sex life]
Dr. Abbott: How often can you and your wife manage it? You don't mind my asking?
Basil Fawlty: [like a deer in headlights] Not at all. Not at all. About average, since you asked.
Mrs. Abbott: Average?
Basil Fawlty: Mm-hm.
Dr. Abbott: What would be average?
Basil Fawlty: Well, you tell me. Ha-ha.
Mrs. Abbott: Well, um... couple of times a year?
Basil Fawlty: What?
Dr. Abbott: Once a year? Well, we knew it must be difficult. My wife couldn't see how you could manage it at all.
