Default Random quotes for AYBS-A!/G&F

First of all thanks to Sienna for the original idea!

Adding a post for AYBS-Again! (Grace & Favor).

Any quotes from that series you find yourself saying once in awhile or often?

Mine is "Skies all streaky-rain for a weeky!" which I say quite a bit since Ohio is a pretty rainy/gloomy state.

Being English, I find myself saying that a lot!

Nice thread, JIF, looking forward to some good quotes!

i seem to randomly get quotes from this in my head as well as from aybs... the one that keeps popping up at the minute is 'but they were happy' (from when mavis explains to mr humphries about some of the people they end up being)

Slocombe - Nobody is shouting up my skirt saying they recognise the face!

CECIL G SLOCOMBE: I haven't been the Sainsbury's for forty years

"There goes another full bottle of gin!"

Actually I don't say that as much as I would like to!

Whenever someone asks me to do two things, I frequently re-write this one and use it:

Mavis: "Time for you to rise and shine!"
Humphries: "Give me a minute, and I think I can manage a shine."

I usually pick whichever is the easiest or least helpful.


Not quite quotes, but physical comedy I've lifted from Mr. Humphries:

Anytime someone asks me to help carry things, I go straight for the littlest one and groan under the strain!

(Another one of my favorites - although it is used twice in AYBS? and not in G&F - is Mr. Humphries rising up everytime he opens his umbrella. I do that every time!)

That is one of my favorites, but I rarely remember to use it.

I found myself using "Decisions, decisions!" (when Humphries had Malcome's arrow stuck to his hat) on my facebook page today.

MRS SLOCOMBE - Mr Moulterd, will you please keep it down!

MR MOULTERD - That'll be a job with you about.


MRS SLOCOMBE - Mind you I was quite good behind the wicket

MR MOULTERD - Not half as good as you was behind the side screen.


MR MOULTERD - Was it all in me imagination when you was in the Miss lovely Legs Contest in 1942 in Tiverton?

MRS SLOCOMBE - I have no recollection of that

MR MOULTERD - Who won a lobster for coming in third

MISS BRAHMS - How many were there?

MR MOULTERD - Four

MRS SLOCOMBE - There was fifteen! (whispers) Drat!


CAPT PEACOCK - My dickie hit my chin again

MR MOULTERD - Sorry I missed that.

mine would be when they found out that Mr. Conklin wanted to be satisfied and they all looked at Mr. Humphries-
"Well dont' look at me...!

"MR HUMPHRIES: I wouldn't think it was normal having a pump in one's pijamas.


MR hUMPHRIES: My mother's very old fashioned. She thinks I ought to save myself.

MAVIS: I think it's time you cashed yourself in.

MR HUMPHRIES: I've waited so long, I'd probably bounce.

MISS BRAHMS: No, we don't want 'em mashed before they get into the ground.


MUSEUM CURATOR: It's very hard to date him

MISS BRAHMS: I Shouldn't think anyone would want to.


MISS BRAHMS: I've always had a preference for older men, they have more to offer

MRS SLOCOMBE: Yes, but only not so often.
