[final line of the last-ever episode]
Norman Clegg: Have I locked the door?
[repeated line: to Glenda, when she asks a naive question]
Edie Pegden: Drink your coffee.
[Compo has just died]
Truly: Are we going to see him?
Norman Clegg: I can see him, fooling about, hands in his pockets, dragging his wellies.
Truly: Are we going to see him before they close the lid.
Norman Clegg: Oh, I'm not so sure about that.
Truly: You'll be sorry. Besides, how often do you get to see something for nothing these days?
[at Compo's funeral, as "The Last Post" plays in the background, Clegg releases a pigeon called Gladys, with a harmonica strapped to its wings, in memory of Compo]
Norman Clegg: Mind how you go, Gladys. Best of luck from all us pigeons.
[the boys are climbing a hill that provides a spectacular view of the surrounding countryside]
Walter "Foggy" Dewhurst: Every time I come up here, the spirit soars! You can't help thinking what a wonderful place it would be to set up a machine gun! Give me a small squad of hand-picked men and I could defend this place indefinitely!
Norman Clegg: How long have you been a nature lover, Foggy?
[Foggy is trying to get Howard in shape by leaping small walls]
Walter "Foggy" Dewhurst: It's people like you who make this country so rich in idiots.
Ros: I was always saved from something serious by my tendency to giggle.
Marina: I must warn you - I'm only available for the next twenty-four hours.
Auntie Wainwright: You don't think I've *always* been a grasping old woman.
[talking about Howard]
Pearl: He's in search of the silent bicycle. It's when they're quiet you know they're up to something.
Edie Pegden: Wesley! Get yerself in here!
Entwistle: Do you know what I like about this? Very little.
[Wally can't pronounce the letter R]
Wally Batty: I'm wready. Yes, I'm wready.
Smiler: There was anger. I've got more personality now.
Alvin: I keep acting like someone who's trying to hide a woman in the house.
Billy Hardcastle: I only joined to do Robin Hood.
Howard: [to Marina] I'd love us to stop and just explore more.
Compo: It's just an ordinary dart.
Walter "Foggy" Dewhurst: It's not an ordinary dart. It's very far from being an ordinary dart. I've prepared it with something to make the creature sleep. Don't worry - I've seen the natives do this in the jungle.
Norman Clegg: Yeah, but they've got poisons growing in the jungle. What have you got?
Walter "Foggy" Dewhurst: The trained soldier learns to make do with whatever's available. You have to use whatever comes to hand.
Compo: All right. What is it tha soaks the darts in that's gonna put it to sleep.
Walter "Foggy" Dewhurst: Well, if you must know, it's Horlicks.
