Mrs Kirk: "So tell me about this Zoe. I didn't quite get your gist earlier, you said something about her inclinations?"
Betty Eagleton: "Well, to be honest, and I'm not one to gossip, but she's not quite like you and me."

Betty Eagleton: "She's a..." (whispering) "...lesbian."
Mrs Kirk: "A lesbian! My Patrick's working for a lesbian!"
Terry Woods: "Nice one, Betty."
