Hyacinth: Is that the water board?
Hyacinth: Then I'd like to speak to someone in charge. My name is Bouquet.
Hyacinth: Yes, I'll spell it. B-U-C-K-E-T.
Hyacinth: No, it's Bouquet. I want whoever you've got there in a managerial capacity.
Hyacinth: Well, it could be an emergency; I'm not sure, that's what I want to find out.
Hyacinth: Yes, I'll wait.
Hyacinth: Hello! No, it's Bouquet.
Hyacinth: Nah, I didn't say it was an emergency.

Impressing Greeks in Limos
25 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

Hyacinth's desire to impress other people is clearly evident in this episode. Rose has a new boyfriend, a Greek named Mr. Marianopolis, and when Rose tells Hyacinth that she will be picked up in a Limo owned by Mr. Marianopolis, Hyacinth goes into high gear making assumptions about Mr. Marianopolis and how she can look good in his eyes. Until the Limo invitation, Hyacinth had not been keen about Onslow's proposed surprise birthday party. With Rose apparently dating someone wealthy for a change, Hyacinth decides Onslow's gift must be gold cuff links. She also begins preparation for an elaborate luncheon at her home with the Vicar, Elizabeth and Emmet, the Major, and many neighbors attending. Unfortunately, the Greek's Limo is in for repairs and he picks up Rose in a hearse! Hyacinth has a houseful of guests when the hearse arrives. Hyacinth goes into panic mode, urging Rose and the Greek to keep circling the block while she tries to keep her guests from learning how badly her plans have gone awry. She practically collapses from exhaustion at the episode's end, vowing that Onslow's engraved cuff links will be returned to the jeweler the next morning. This is a hilarious episode, one of the series best.
