Talking Most Unforgettable Rumbold-ism

What's your most unforgettable Rumbold-ism through the entire series ?

Mine was those moments when he keeps playing the piano and Humphries calls out fondly - "Mr.Rumbold!"...

Also, what is the song he plays instead of Night and Day in the "Night Club" ?

'I am aware of how you spell jacket.'

Basically, the whole scene about kneeing trousers cracks me up

"Stop playing with the phone, Peacock..."

"I'd better take this bottle back to the wine department or they'll charge me."

"Put it down. No, I don't want that put down... I don't want you to put down 'Put it down'."

"I'm worried about my nose catching the sun."

"Do I gather that you, a married man, have been 'casanova-ring' around?"

"Well, we have two lady floor walkers. Which one don't you fancy?"
