Postman Pat[edit]

  • [first lines] Oh, thanks, Jess. It wouldn't do to forget my hat on such a lovely morning.
  • Oh, Alf. Not again.
  • [to the PATBOT 3000] Well then, good luck. And remember, the most important thing for a postman is... [PATBOT 3000: Speed, Efficiency, Ruling the world.] Well. I was going to say being friendly. You know the human touch.
  • Oh Muffins.
  • I don't feel like a very happy man.

Edwin Carbunkle[edit]

  • [first lines] Lots of wasted time, space and energy here, Ben. Not sure even my machines can save this place.
  • You are...Postman Clifton.
  • Wool gathering. (laughs) That was rather good.
  • My uncle was eaten by Dingos, Mr. Brown.
  • [While showing Mr. Brown an image of the UDM 3000] This programmable postman is 10x faster than a human. The perfect worker.
  • [After the meeting with Mr. Brown] SDS will use my robots, Mr. Brown. And once they've replaced your postmen, I'll replace you. [laughs evilly]
  • [Breaking the fourth wall] A robot would never embarrass the company like this.
  • [After watching Pat's performance on TV] Yes. Yes, they do.
  • [Introducing the PATBOT 3000 to Pat] The PATBOT 3000. This mechanical marvel will be taking over your postal duties. Temporarily, of course.
  • [To Stagehand Robin] Lose the cat.
  • [To Mrs. Goggins] Madam, this is private property and you are trespassing. Shall I ring someone to show you out?
  • [After firing all of SDS' human employees] [chuckles evilly] Robots, report for duty. We're taking over this operation. At last, no more inefficient humans cluttering up my mailroom. Now that everyone loves Postman Pat, they'll turn a blind eye as I replace every deliveryman in the Special Delivery Service with my glorious money-making machines! [laughs] Profits will skyrocket! The board of directors will retire that weak-kneed Brown AND PROMOTE ME TO CEO! And I won't stop there. We'll diversify into other businesses. We'll make automated Bank Tellers, Robotic technical support, even COMPUTER ANIMATED MOVIES! [laughing evilly] FLY, MY PRETTIES! FLY! FLY! Today England, TOMORROW, THE WORLD! [laughs evilly]
  • [To Pat] Oh, no. You're not ruining this now. I've finally got that fool of a CEO where I want him. If it were up to him, SDS would stay a quaint little delivery service dedicated to Customer Service and The Human Touch. Bleh! [Pat: But I-I thought that's what all this was for. To help keep SDS the way it's always been.] Your publicity was to make people love Postman Pat. [Shows Pat a video of Patbots marching out of the SDS Sorting Office on his Phone] Now, I can replace all of SDS's human workers with Patbots! And when I become CEO, SDS will become the biggest, most Profitable company in the world!
  • [To Mr. Brown] Give me the SDS, Brown. The days of lovable friendly mailmen helping quaint country characters with their stupid little problems is over. The future belong to machines. AND TO ME!!! [laughing maniacally]
  • [last lines] You can't do this to me. I'm the future! I'll just move to America, I'm not even a bad guy there, YOU'LL SEE! I'll be back!, I'll Be Back I'LL BE BACK!!! Nobody understands genius.

Ben Taylor[edit]

  • [first lines] Pat! Am I glad to see you.
  • [as the people of Greendale confront him about the PATBOT 3000's behavior] Look, I know he's been a bit off lately, but this is Pat we're talking about. He'd never let us down on purpose.
  • Pat's under a lot of pressure. I'm sure he'll be back to normal once this telly business blows over.
  • Pat, you're not going along with this are you?

Julian Clifton[edit]

  • [first lines] Sorry, Dad. I'm practicing the trick shot you taught me.
  • Are you sure, Dad? I'm getting pretty good.
  • Dad, I don't play for Pencaster yet.
  • [after hearing You're the One is coming to Greendale] Dad? Did you hear that? They're coming here!
  • Dad's muffed it. Hasn't he, Mum?
  • Jess? Oi, Jess!
  • [after seeing all the people of Greendale at the sorting office] It looks like everyone in town's here. I wonder what's going on Jess? [Jess meows 'I don't know']
  • [after the PATBOT 3000 has fired Ben Taylor] Dad, you can't do this. Ben is your best friend. You've always told the most important things in the world are friends and family. Didn't you mean it?


  • [repeated line] Meow.
  • Hmm?
  • Mmm-Hmm!
  • Mmm-Mmm!
  • We? Mmm.


  • I'm gonna have to keep an eye on this Postman Pat.
  • You should have stuck to letters, Pat! You need to be willing to stop at nothing to make in showbiz! I learned that from Hannah Montana.
  • Jings, Crivens and help ma boab. He's a robot.
  • This is just too good to be true! Postman Pat's a cheat! Robots can't enter talent competitions!
  • Oh my allergies.


  • A talent agent with only one client?
  • Thought I sing a song.
  • I've had a few dancing lessons too.
  • Oh yeah, that was good. [Wilf hits his head] Ow! What'd you do that for? [Wilf: Don't clap for your enemy!] But he's good.
  • [while playing a video game with Jess] Pat, your cat's amazing. He's already beaten Wilf's high score. What's his name?
  • Mmm-hmm. Charm, love. Got it.
  • [after Wilf snatches his game console from him] Hey! I was playing that.
  • Oh yeah, it's great, Wilf. You deliver mail, have a cat and be nice to people. Every now and then you can rescue a sheep. It's the highest game around. Totally massive.
  • [after turning off the Patbots with Carbunkle's phone] Please. Easiest game ever.


Michael Lam: Hi, Pat. Hi, Sara. Hey, Julian. [Amy: Hi, Michael.] [singing] Oh I am the very model of a modern major general of information vegetable...
Ajay Bains: Yo, yo, yo. Check it! MC Ajay has a sick beatle drop on y'all. Innit?
Reverend Peter Timms: To forgive is divine.
Ben Taylor: Mr. Carbunkle, Pat if our very best postman...
PC Arthur Selby: Alas, poor Yorick! What's all this then?
Ted Glenn: Oh, yes, folks have often said how much I look like Michael Bublé.
Major Forbes: No, it's Justin Bieber you wanted to be.

[Lizzy hands Pat a pink letter for Father Christmas]
Pat: It's a bit early for letters to Father Christmas isn't it?
Lizzy Taylor: [whispering] I want to avoid the rush.
Pat: Well this is a very special letter.
PC Arthur Selby: Hmmm.
Pat: I'll make sure it gets delivered.

[Pat and Jess arrive at the Greendale post office where Mrs. Goggins the postmistress is outside with some parcels]
Mrs. Goggins: Good morning, Pat.
Pat: Hello, Mrs. Goggins. Any local deliveries today?
Mrs. Goggins: [hands Pat 2 small parcels] Just these, Pat.
Pat: [takes the parcels] Thanks.
Mrs. Goggins: [hands Pat more parcels] And a few things to keep in mind today, Pat. Michael's repainting his shop. So you mustn't use the letterbox.
Pat: Got it.
Mrs Goggins: And Julia Pottage has a dreadful cold. So don't ring the bell.
Pat: Right. That's all then?
Mrs. Goggins: Have a good day
Pat: Thanks. Let's go, Jess.
[Jess, buried under the parcels meows annoyed. Pat then drives away as Mrs. Goggins wave bye to him]

[Cut to night, Pat & Jess return home after work]
Pat: Oh goodness, Jess, what a day. Do you think Sara will be very disappointed about canceling the trip?
Jess: Meow.
Pat: Well maybe she wasn't looking forward to Italy all that much.
[Sara opens the door with a book, chef's hat and fake mustache]
Sara Clifton: Bonegerno.
Jess: Meow! [hides under Pat's legs]
Pat: Uh... oh. Sara? Are we having a fancy dress party?
Sara Clifton: No silly, I just wanted to get us in the mood for our holiday. Come in or as they say in Italy; [speaks false Italian] Oh. Or maybe that's something about a hedgehog. Oh I'm so excited, Pat. Did you know Italian is one of the most romantic languages? [Pat & Jess look at each other nervously] I've been looking at hotels. They're a bit expensive.
Pat: Sara, I um...
Sara Clifton: But we've been looking forward to this trip for so long.
Pat: I-I have to tell you something.
Sara: Oh, me too, Pat. I think we should go to Venice first.
Pat: Right. Only one small thing, a man from head office..
Jess: Mmmm. Meow?
Pat: ...Came by today.
Jess: Meow!
Pat: Smoke?
Sara Oh! The Caprese Salad! [runs into the kitchen] Oh no. [clattering noises are head]
Pat: Need some help love?
Sara: Oh no! I'm all right. Thank you!
Pat: [to Julian] Does one actually cook a Caprese Salad?
Julian Clifton: She does.


  • He's really taking off!
  • Me-ooowww!
  • Do the Pat-Bot!
