Fawlty Towers (1975)

2 corrected entries in Basil the Rat (a.k.a. Rats)

Basil the Rat (a.k.a. Rats) - S2-E6

Corrected entry: When Basil, Polly and the Spanish waiter are talking in the kitchen, watch as Polly almost slips over on her high heels on rat poison.

Correction: Well there was rat poison wasn't there? People slip on and trip over things all the time.

Basil the Rat (a.k.a. Rats) - S2-E6

Corrected entry: When Mr. Carnegie is running through the list of things he has found wrong in the kitchen, one of them is the lack of a wash-hand basin. However in the episode "Waldorf Salad" Terry is seen washing his hands in the kitchen sink (wash-hand basin) and in this episode when Polly closes the fridge door the sink is visible. So why is Mr. Carnegie complaining about the lack of a wash-hand basin when there is one already present?

Correction: Perhaps he considered just one not enough for the size of the kitchen, thus a "lack" of hand wash basins would be correct.

Quotes

Mrs Richards: And another thing. I expect to be able to see the sea.
Basil: [whispering to Manuel.] Deaf, Mad and Blind. [To Mrs Richards.] Yes, this is the view as far as I can remember... Yes, yes it is.
Mrs Richards: When I pay for a view, I expect something more interesting than that.
Basil: But that is Torquay, madam.
Mrs Richards: Well it's not good enough.
Basil: Well may I ask what you expected to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically across the plain...
Mrs Richards: [interrupting.] Don't be silly. I expect to be able to see the sea.
Basil: You CAN see the sea! It's over there between the land and the sky!
Mrs Richards: I'd need a telescope to see that.
Basil: Well might I suggest you move to a hotel closer to the sea. Or preferably in it.
Mrs Richards: Now listen to me. I'm not satisified but I've decided to stay. HOWEVER, I shall expect a deduction.
Basil: Why, because Krakatoa isn't erupting at the moment?
Mrs Richards: Because the room is cold, the bath is too small, the view is invisible and the radio doesn't work.
Basil: No, the radio works. You don't.
