Episode Quotes

Dennis: What, did ya make that?!
Oz: No, but it's nice isn't it!

Neville: Whatever happened to your Hazel, Barry?
Barry: Oh, haha.... she left me. Yeah, she did this Open University course and well, she got caught up in that whole movement that confused emancipation and liberation with sleeping with other women.
Neville: Never!
Oz: And she never let ya watch?
Barry: I always wondered why she was a Melissa Etheridge fan!

(Talking about Hazel, his ex-wife)
Barry: Actually, I saw her a year back. She was trying to change a rear tear on the hard shoulder on the M6. So I tooled up in the Bentley. Course, she'd had no idea of how successful I'd become in the meantime.
Moxey: What did she say?
Barry: Well, she just stared at me... in utter disbelief.
Neville: But ya helped her change the wheel?
Barry: Nah, pig off! It was pissing down! I just said well, well, well Hazel, that'll teach you for being a lesbo!

Episode Goofs
Lord Wharfedale referred to the Transporter bridge an 'an antiquated ferry that can only take a dozen cars'. The maximum the bridge can actually take is only nine.
