Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Movie Quote Quiz

Lord Scrumptious: Time's up. Had your chance. Muffed it. Good morning.

Childcatcher: I don't trust a man who makes toys in a land where children are forbidden.

Grandpa: Nasty smelly things, motorcars!

Child Catcher: Come along, kiddie-winkies!

Child Catcher: There are children here somewhere. I can smell them.

Jeremy: Please, Mr. Coggins! You can't sell our lovely car to that nasty man!

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Chitty is taking off from the castle, Caracticus looks down at the toymaker and Peter and says, "Bye bye". If you look closely, right in front of them, a boy runs across holding a stick he stole from one of the cavalrymen. He is waving it around and you can tell it's fake because it flops around like rubber. (02:16:50)

Question: If Truly Scrumptious' father is 'Lord Scrumptious', then as his daughter, why isn't she 'Lady Scrumptious?'. If I remember correctly, she is referred to as 'Miss Scrumptious'.

Lavender

Chosen answer: By rules of courtesy titles in the United Kingdom, Truly Scrumptious would inherit no title. Her parents being Lord and Lady Scrumptious, she would be simply Miss Truly Scrumptious. However, if her father were a baron, she would be called "The Honorable Miss Truly Scrumptious." Were her father an earl, duke or marquess, she would THEN be the "Lady Truly Scrumptious." But again, children of a lord and lady do not receive a title. When the lord dies, his oldest son inherits his father's title of lord. If there are no boys, it might pass to the eldest daughter. In this case, only upon her father's death would Truly become "Lady Truly Scrumptious."
