Quotes from

[Stanley is sitting on his fork-lift truck]
Knowles: Come on, Squire. What's the trouble?
Stanley Windrush: Damn thing won't go.
Knowles: Oh you've done it now. You forgot to plug in, didn't you?
Dai: [gleefully] I saw that last night. And when Charlie saw it, he said "There's a bloke who's going to have a flat battery in the morning."
Stanley Windrush: Well if he saw the plug was out, why the devil didn't he put it in?
Knowles: Demarcartion, Stan. Not his job. He mustn't go doing work that belongs to other people, must he?
Stanley Windrush: I thought we workers were all solid together.
Knowles: Squire, you need educating. He's in a different union. He's in the Amalgamated, we're in the General.
Stanley Windrush: Well what's the point in having *two* unions?
Knowles: Blimey. When was you born? How would we go on for wage claims? The Amalgamated gets rise, so the General puts in for one. If the General gets it, then the Amalgamated starts all over again. So it goes on, you see - like leapfrog. Otherwise we wouldn't none of us get a rise, would we?

Major Hitchcock: We've got chaps here who could break out in a muck sweat merely by standing still.

Fred Kite: I see from your particulars you was at college in Oxford. I was up there meself. I was at the Balliol summer school in 1946. Very good toast and preserves they give you at tea time, as you probably know.
