"Fawlty Towers: The Psychiatrist (#2.2)" (1979)
Sybil Fawlty: It's a relatively new profession, psychiatry, isn't it?
Mrs. Abbott: Well, Freud started about 1880.
Sybil Fawlty: Yes, but it's only now we're seeing them on the television.

[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.
Basil Fawlty: [affronted] Well, as you've asked, two or three times a week, actually.
Dr. Abbott: A week?
Basil Fawlty: Yes. Pretty normal, isn't it? We're quite normal down here in Torquay, you know.
