    Fetcher: That's French.

    Nick: It's two hats in one, miss. For parties, [turns the birdie over, making it look like a wedding veil] for weddings. Oh, madame! This makes you look like a vision, like a dream.

    Fetcher: Like a duck!

    Ginger: But... what about Edwina? How many more empty nests will it take?

    Bunty: Well perhaps it wouldn't be empty if she'd spent more time laying and less time escaping!

    Ginger: So laying eggs all your life and then getting plucked, stuffed and roasted is good enough for you, is it?

    Babs: ... It's a living.
