Quotes from

Mrs. Kite: [talking about their daughter Cynthia] She just wants a bit of fun.
Fred Kite: Yes, and she makes sure she gets it.


[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: He's a new man. He hasn't got used to the natural rhythm of the other workers.
Waters: What you call their natural rhythm of work is neither natural, rhythmic, or anything very much to do with work.
