My favorite was done on the board, Adian used a old pic I did of Mr. Rumbold as the Grace Brothers Travel Gnome.

I just love how he would always get people's reports all mixed up (i.e. Rumbold: "...and you're supporting an Asian on a broken gas ring?" Lucus: "Would you like ME to write it down for you?").

"He's probably hiding in the lift shaft. Have you tried tempting him with a banana?"

"Well, what you do after store hours is your own affair, but you could hardly carry on with this under our very noses... Do you think she has heard about Miss Brahms?...What?! All three of you?!?"

"Let me write this down... You live in Criplegate... Your mother is an Asian... Your mother has a cough... and you're supporting this Asian on a broken old gas ring..."

"I must try that smile sometime as well..."

"Mr. Lucas has just been telling me about the woodworm in your drawers."

I can't remember the episode for the life of me but it was when Rumbold and Peacock were having an argument when Rumbold said "I'm likely to blow my top" and Peacock replied "By the look of it you already have"

Had me rolled up in laughter for hours that one. He really did drop some absolute clangers.

A few of mine....I hope these aren't duplicates if so....more for laughs:

(Takes off glasses) sometimes I get the feeling that im MISSING something

Rumbold: I guess its up to me to be Solomon
Slocombe: nobodies cutting a baby in half!!
Rumbold: baby?!?! What baby?!?!
I forget how the rest of that one goes but its funny

Peacock: do you mind sir (taking out cigarette case)
Rum bold: no not at all (takes cigarette from peacock...nasty look from peacock)

Rum bold: you mean kneed with a K, ahh yes like kneeding dough...so you needed the jacket to make it more supple, which if you remember peacock is what I said in the first place (I don't think that is exactly right but I know everyone here will know the quote)

Peacock: your spelling it with an N, Mr humphries is spelling it with a K
Rum bold: I am quite aware of how you spell jacket captain peacock
