The Family Way (1966)
Ezra Fitton: It's life, lad. It might make you laugh at your age, but one day it'll make you bloody cry!
Ezra Fitton: He walked in 'ere like it were a public convenience
Ezra Fitton: All this reading books he does, it's not natural.
Lucy Fitton: You wouldn't know what natural is.
Ezra Fitton: My father always used to say if it were natural you'd see animals doing it. I never saw a horse reading.
Ezra Fitton: It says here if the Chinese go on increasing, there'll not be enough food left to go around. Someone ought to tell them Chinese to stop it.
Lucy Fitton: Why don't you? They might take notice.
Lucy Fitton: Would you say there was anything odd or queer about a fellow that went on his honeymoon and took his pal with him?
Lucy Fitton: Some men never grow up, do they?
Liz Piper: [softly sobbing]
Jenny Fitton: What's up with you, mum?
Lucy Fitton: It's a big moment for a mother, luv. A daughter's first night.
Liz Piper: [continues sobbing] I just can't believe she's ready about it. I feel there was so much I should have told her.
Molly Thompson: I'll give you a couple of tips, luv. Never show pleasure. You know what I mean, don't you?
Lucy Fitton: Not that there ever is much.
Molly Thompson: Aye, you're right there. Never actually refuse, though. It makes a man feel small. And they take it out of your house-keeping money.
Mrs. Harris: Remember Mrs. Evans, the woman who lived up Canal? She uses to charge her husband.
Mrs. Lee: Eugh, I think that's disgusting.
Mrs. Harris: Oh, I don't know. She used to put the money in a kitty towards the holidays. First year they went to Spain
Lucy Fitton: [bitter about her husband's behavior over their honeymoon] Every blessed morning, off they'd go, happy as sunboys, without as much as a goodbye kiss.
Ezra Fitton: I was never one to take liberties.
Liz Piper: But she was your wife, Mr. Fitton.
Ezra Fitton: I know, but you can still show respect, can't you? I mean, kissing a nineteen year old girl while she's still asleep?
Liz Piper: But she slept beside you all night...
Ezra Fitton: I slept beside my brother Tom for years, but I never bloody kissed him!
