Quote of the week

A choleric hotel owner and manager, Basil, his sharp-tongued wife, Sybil, an art student/waitress, Polly, and a Spanish handyman, Manuel, who hasn't learned much English yet - a stay at this hotel is sure to be an experience of the other kind.

Basil Fawlty comes back from a short trip. Before he went he hired a constructor to put a door to the kitchen in the wall. Unfortunately instead the door to the dining room is gone. Too bad Basil didn't hire the constructor his wife had insisted on, and it won't be long before she's here ...

Basil: What am I gonna do? She's gonna be back at lunchtime.
Polly: Shh. Now wait.
Basil: I'm a dead man. Do you realize?
Polly: Easy!
Basil: You're dead, too! We're all dead!
Polly: Don't panic!
Basil: What else is there to do???

Fawlty Towers, UK, 1975 - 1979
