Trivia

Jean (Judi Dench), who'd been sneaking around to meet an old friend, tells Lionel (Geoffrey Palmer) about it, to which he quips, "Were you on a mission for MI-5 ?" MI-5 is, of course, the government organization of James Bond in the 007 films. Dench began appearing as "M" in the Bond film GoldenEye (1995). Both she and Palmer appeared in the Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies (1997). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Lionel: [reading instructions] Finally, tighten screw D and your wine-rack is ready for use. Hmh. Not bad, not bad at all.
[Lionel places an empty bottle in the rack and it falls to pieces. Jean smiles]
Lionel: Don't hold back on my account.
Jean: I don't know why you get involved with these things; I really don't.

St. Trinian's Girls with the "uh" and the "uh."
2 August 2017 | by medievalmikeSee all my reviews

Harry takes Sandy to a St. Trinian's themed dance, where the women are expected to dress like St. Trinian's Girls with the "uh" and the "uh" (that's what everyone keeps saying). Just the "uh" by itself would have been bad enough. But to have the "uh" as well, that's as intolerable as you-know-what.

Jean goes out to dinner with an old boyfriend who she had dated right after the death of her first husband. He had been out of the country for most of the intervening years working for the Foreign Service. He has also married. He doesn't realize quite how many years it has been since he and Jean last spoke. My impression before this episode was that Judith was grown when her father died. Here, we find out she was a little girl. The old flame only knew her as a little girl, and thinks she still is a little girl until Jean corrects him.
