[Laurence puts the Shakespeare play back on the bookshelf]
Laurence: Our nation's culture. Not something you can actually read, of course.
Angela: I got very drunk on champagne at our wedding, do you remember?
[Tony remembers it all too clearly]
Tony: [with feeling] Yeah.
[talking about Demis Roussos]
Laurence: We don't want to listen to that fat Greek caterwauling all night.
Beverly: Just because a picture happens to be erotic, does not make it pornographic.
Beverly: Ange, can you take a little bit of criticism? Now, please don't be offended when I say this, Ange, but I can see what you've done. Okay, you've just sat down in front of your mirror and you've just put your lipstick on. Now, next time, will you try this for me? Now, this is something, Ange, I always used to tell my customers, and it always works. Now, next time, sit down in front of your mirror, and just look at yourself. Relax, and just say, "I've got very beautiful lips." Then take your lipstick and apply it, and Ange, you're gonna see the difference. Because then, you will be applying that lipstick to every single corner of your mouth. Do you know what I mean? Will you try it for me next time?
Beverly: Just sit down in front of your mirror, look at yourself, relax, and just say...
Angela: I've got very beautiful lips.
Beverly: Yeah. And I promise you, Ange, you're gonna see the difference. Okay?
Beverly: Having to do all that breastfeeding and changing nappies would actually make me heave.
Beverly: [about Laurence] To be quite honest with you, he's a boring little bugger at times, actually.
Beverly: Don't you find shopping boring, though, Ange? Oh, I do, I hate it. He takes me down in the car, and I get me wheelie, Tone, and I whiz in, I grab anything I can see, bung it in me wheelie, he writes me a cheque, we bung it in the car and we bring it home, and then it's done for the week, you know what I mean?
Beverly: Don't get me wrong, Tone, it's not that I can't drive; in fact, I'm a good driver, but... Let me put it to you this way...
Angela: Oh it's funny. We were all getting married about the same time as you were... getting divorced!
Angela: He's not violent, he's just a bit nasty. Like the other day he said he'd like to sellotape my mouth.
