MRS. SLOCOMBE: That’s how I met my husband, during an air raid. The bombs were raining down and I saw his face lit by an incendiary. He threw me on my face and said, look out, here comes a big one!
MR. LUCAS: I suppose there wasn’t much time for chatting in those days.
Ha ha! Another double entendre from this classic British comedy, first making its TV appearance in the 1970’s
Mr Lucas, who was regularly put down by the more senior members of staff, was young, penniless, womanising junior salesman. He usually had some witty retort, as shown above.
And the title of this post… one of Mrs Slocombe’s many infamous quotes.
