Quotes

Eileen Grimshaw: Tracy Barlow! I mean, even her initials are a killer disease!

[Sally hands Kevin a leaflet]

Kevin Webster: "Websters' Auto Centre"?

Sally Seddon: Yeah, re-branding they call it. All the big firms are doing it. It's all about image these days. Now, the thing about flyers is it's all about the artwork and the larger the print run, the cheaper they are. You can claim it back on tax as an employment expense. I've had 10,000 run.

Kevin Webster: Sal! We are working flat out to try and get work done and you're wasting money!

Sally Seddon: Do you know what you sound like? You sound like a parent whose kids go to Weatherfield High, a parent with no ambition. But us, me and you, we are Oak Hill parents...

Kevin Webster: But what about the lads?

Sally Seddon: Never mind the lads. We'll take on some new staff, we'll expand, because all that matters is our girls. Our maths genius helped with all this. You've been too busy so I got Rosie to help me. I got three different quotes from three different printers, three different thicknesses of paper, one, two or three colours, and Rosie worked out all the different unit costs for me, so we've all been pulling our weight, which is why I need to talk to you about the apostrophe. Rosie was the one who spotted it, she's so sharp - I should have asked her to do the proof- reading. Anyway, it's only a little mistake and the printer's put it after the 'S' in Websters and now it looks like the auto centre belongs to all of the Websters instead of just you! It's going to cost another 300 quid to get it fixed, but I figure only bright spots like Rosie would notice and she's probably going to be your accountant in a few years' time and with you being so busy I'm going to have to start coming into the office and doing your admin full time, but don't worry Kevin I'm not expecting any wages, 'cos you'll still be in charge of the lads, and you do what you're good at, and I'll do what I'm good at, and Rosie can go to Oak Hill, the apostrophe can stay where it is because in a way it's all fate, isn't it? We will be the Websters' family auto centre!

Rita Littlewood: [about Norris's secret book] The hero of his novel has got himself caught up in a menage-a-trois!

Emily Nugent: Oh, really!

Rita Littlewood: Emily, you do know what a menage-a-trois is?

Emily Nugent: I most certainly do!

Rita Littlewood: Oh. Well, the two women involved in this...

Emily Nugent: Love triangle?

Rita Littlewood: Yes. Are a mild-mannered church-goer called Emilia...

Emily Nugent: [subtly shocked] Oh.

Rita Littlewood: ...and a racy, Titian temptress called Reeba.

Emily Nugent: [suspicious] Oh.

Rita Littlewood: [reading from the novel] "Norris jumped out of the moped as Emilia and Reeba alighted the side-car... "

Emily Nugent: That's a big side-car!

Rita Littlewood: "... and hand in hand, the three of them ran barefoot through Chester Zoo. Atop the souvenir kiosk, Reeba belts out a quick rendition of "Paper Moon", whilst Emilia chose this moment - for some solemn prayer."

Emily Nugent: It's not really a page-turner, is it?

Rita Littlewood: You wait till you hear what happens in the meercat enclosure!

Emily Nugent: I like meercats... I've a tea towel with some on - Norris knows that!

[Blanche, their landlady, is kicking Frankie and Danny out of their house, without notice]

Frankie Baldwin: You cannot not kick us out of our house, you looney!

Danny Baldwin: Get up, Frankie. She won't hear you - she's as deaf as a post!

Maya Sharma: I knew it!

[throws some jars at Dev]

[Marvin and Ashley square up ahead of their big fight]

Marvin Maddocks: When the bell starts ringing and the trainer says "Go", I'm telling you, girlie, there's something you ought to know. Your knees are going to tremble, your feet will turn to lead. I'm going to smack your nose into the back of your head.
