This is something I've thought about for a while so the other day I sat there writing down everything that Rumbold said and then it dawned on me... There were only 3. I wonder if one of the lost ones was "Costa Plonka" ???? :lol2:

In "New Look", first Rumbold takes credit for the fountain then Peacock takes credit for it. Who's idea do you think it was originally ????

'We all think and it goes into your tank."

Given that I'd say it was Peacock's idea.

Here's a question...in "Anything You Can Do" the staff meets in Mr. Rumbold's office and Mr. Humphries states that common is as common does...then he says he doesn't know what it means but his mother would always say it when his dad wiped his hands on the tablecloth or something. I know there was another time when he mentioned his father (can't think of it at all!)...but in "Heir Apparent" (I think that's what the episode was called) it's believed that OMG was his father.

Thoughts?

Well, No wonder he's confused! ( I wish I could say that like Dean Martin used to)

I don't understand what your question is? Maybe you can re-read it and clarify. ~~Tids

I think she is asking us which other episode Mr.Humphries mentions his father in besides "Anything You Can Do".

In response to your question, I believe it is "The Hand of Fate" when he mentions his father noticing something funny about him when he was younger. Does that answer your question Amy?

I was just pointing out another instance of the writers not really sticking with certain plot issues! It always really bothered me!

And yes, dazzlestar, that does help answer my question! I couldn't think for the life of me where else Mr. Humphries mentioned his father!

Okay Amy...I get where you're coming from now. You're wondering about exactly WHO fathered Mr. H. Since he'd mentioned his Dad blowing his nose on the table cloth in "AYCD". THEN...when we get to "Heir Apparent" his Mum mentions some men who COULD have fathered Mr.H. and OMG wasn't one of them....and it appears to the viewer Mr. H. has never even MET his Dad. Don't get too hung up with continuity on AYBS? or you'll be up all night! :mrgreen: Rememember....the writers never expected fans to be nit picking the plots 30 years later!

Who knows, maybe Lucas paid Mr. Mash off before hand so that his
true name would remain hidden.

Now that could be a reasonable reason

In "50 Years On" Lucas seems perplexed when Peacock tells him about the Grace Brothers traditions of the departments clubbing together for buying presents for these occations. Now Lucas was there for 5 years so far so shouldn't of he known about this tradition ????

He probably didn't care to pay attention, lol.
He missed getting a luncheon ticket on "Christmas Crackers", remember?

Yeah, but the luncheon ticket was a one year thing. For 5 years Lucas should have been aware that everyone on the floor had a birthday and that they should have been collecting for everyone, not just Slocombe.
