Nicked [1.1][edit]

Sharon: Oh see you've tidied up then.
Chris: I've been waiting for my trousers, took your bloody time didn't ya?
Sharon: Oh I could hardly drag meself away, it was so romantic watching your jeans wrapping themselves around my knickers, it took me right back to when a quick tumble meant more than 20ps worth of hot air.
Chris: Hot air? you can talk about hot time Richard Branson feels like crossing the Alantic in that giant virgin jolly of his...he can come round here, you can talk him up...right do you want a lift to your sisters or are you going to stay here nagging the wall paper off the walls.
Sharon: Hang on hang on I'll just do me face.
Chris: I can't wait that tax disk expires at Christmas.
Sharon: There was 30 quid in here when I went up the launderette.
Chris: No some thieving twerp must have had that away whilst you were adding the fabric conditioner.
Sharon: I didn't take my purse up to the launderette you lying merchant...look that's my shopping money I worked bloody hard for that you thieving you know how many customers I had to short change to scrape that 30 quid together...gunna put it on one of your 3 legged horses was ya?
Chris: What I do with my money is down to me.
Sharon: Your money? you're supposed to be the bread winner here...instead you're nicking the crumbs off my plate...what sort of husband are you?
Chris: Don't start all that least I didn't marry you under false pretences.
Sharon: Meaning what?
Chris: You know.
Sharon: Say it.
Chris: What's the point?
Sharon: GO ON SAY IT!

Sharon: Oooh you bastard [elbows him in the stomach]
Chris: [holds his stomach] You told me ta say're bloody mental. [leaves the room]

Just Visiting [1.2][edit]

Dorien: Look, I know I've got a mouth on me.
Tracey: Like a whale.
Sharon: Sperm whale.
Dorien: I've got a heart of gold, ask anyone.
Tracey: She got a heart of gold, Shal?
Sharon: That's the buzz on the street, Trace.
[Dorien cuts through the stems]
Dorien: And honestly, I just want to be friends.
[Dorien puts the flowers in the vase, only the flowers are visible at the top of the vase.]

Season Four[edit]

Hungry for Love [4.8][edit]

Dorien [dressed in a leotard]: Coo-ee!!
Sharon: It's an OAP from Fame.

Dorien: He doesn't seem interested. I don't understand it!
Sharon: Perhaps you're being too subtle.
Dorien: I hardly think so. When he came round this morning, I opened the door in my underwear.
Sharon: I didn't know you had a door in your underwear! What is it - a tradesmen's entrance?
Dorien: It isn't funny.
Sharon: It is.
Dorien: There I was, standing in front of him, half naked.
Sharon: What happened?
Dorien: Nothing, he took one look at my body and said he'd come back when I've finished the ironing.
Dorien: He just doesn't know what he's missing, a woman of my experience can show him things he'd never seen before.
Sharon: Yeah, but perhaps he's not turned on by liver spots and stretch marks.
Dorien: Well, I'm not beaten yet, I'll have that Bret Warner's amazing technicolor jockstrap hanging off the end of my four poster if I have to prise it off with a crowbar.

Season Five[edit]

The Beautiful Game [5.13][edit]

[Sharon, Tracey and Dorien are playing Monopoly]
Sharon: Your go, Trace.
[Tracey rolls the dice]
Tracey: Four.
Sharon: Which means you've landed on... Dorien's Boobs!
[Dorien and Tracey look perplexed]
Sharon: Otherwise known as the Community Chest.
Dorien: Yes, thank you Sharon, at least I don't have to buy my bras from High & Mighty.
Tracey: Go to jail?
Sharon: Well, that's handy, if you see Chris give him a kick up the cobbler for me, will you?
[Sharon rolls the dice]
Sharon: Nine. Which means I'm on...
Dorien: Park Lane, which happens to be owned by moi, and look, I've got a hotel on it.
Sharon: Knocking shop, more like.

Birds of a Feather: East Side Story[edit]

Tracey: Calm down, we ain't in San Antonio now.
Sharon: Brilliant night, though, weren't it?
Tracey: Yeah! Here, where are the kids?
Dorien: The sun's coming back up, Rosa's obviously has gone back to her coffin. I'd better go, we really must do this again sometime.
Sharon: Great! When?
Dorien: How about when hell freezes over? Ciao!
Sharon: What was that?
Tracey: It was out the back by the pool.
Dorien: Oh my god, burgulars, call the police.
Sharon: We can't.
Dorien: Why not?
Sharon: The filter unit was on police five last week.
Tracey: Let's go and have a look. Give me that bottle.
[Sharon, Tracey and Dorien creep towards the door and find Garth and Rosa in the Jacuzzi]
Tracey: GARTH!
Garth: [stands up] Mum!
[Rosa laughs]
Dorien: Heavens, hasn't it grown?
