The character of Mrs. Slocombe was "LONELY".

This is her private life.

I have no idea, cause U.K. and U.S.A are nations separated by a common language...but a hazardous guess would be "people who go on a trip"?
like vacationers.

You know I never knew it was "day-ayyyy-ayyy TRIPPER"
I thought it was "day-ayyyy TRIPPER" or was it "day-ayyyy-ayyy-ayyy TRIPPER"? ( ala "er, er er, er er er, or er er er er " )

Well at least now, the song makes sense. I did think it was about a girl who ate acid during the day. After all, it was the 60's.

Beatles - Day Tripper Lyrics

Got a good reason for taking the easy way out
Got a good reason for taking the easy way out now

She was a day tripper, a one way ticket yea
It took me so long to find out, and I found out

She's a big teaser, she took me half the way there
She's a big teaser, she took me half the way there now

Tried to please her, she only played one night stands
Tried to please her, she only played one night stands now

She was a day tripper, a Sunday driver yea
Took me so long to find out, and I found out

Day tripper
Day tripper yea


You could read in just about anything you want into those lyrics.

Maybe "Lucy in the sky with Diamonds"?

Here's a new one......

In "Hoorah For THe Holidays" Rumbold was to give the staff 5 choices for a holiday spot. He shows

1. Torremeloni In the Costa Del Sol which is in Spain

2. Monte Lysterol in Portugal

3. Tantalizing Tunisia

What happened to the other 2 ????

I think they are in the same place as the 2 stories on the hotel that weren't shown in the picture!

The way I see it, the staff is seriously disgusted enough with what was offered with these 3 "luxury" locales, that any further "slide show" would be completely unecessary! Besides that.....there are time restrictions per ep, and only so many funny slides/comments can be made. :wink:
