In Season 3 Episode 2, Lionel is telling Rocky a joke about a parrot with no feet. ("So the parrot said, 'No, I didn't see a thing. I got so excited I fell off my perch.'") Rocky replies, "I understand the joke, I just don't think it's funny. In Season 9 Episode 3, Rocky tells the same joke to Mrs. Bale, laughs, and admits, "It's a very good joke, that!"

Charming, soft, slow-paced, believable, delightful. This is one sitcom which never jumps the shark. Dench and Palmer are excellent, of course, but so are the supporting players. (What a shock it must have been to each to have his/her agent call with good news/bad news: "You've got a continuing role in a sitcom, BUT you have to chew scenery with Dame Judi and Geoffrey Palmer.")
