Quote du jour/Jean and Lionel in As Time Goes By

Jean has put a booklet together about their wedding arrangements. She hears Lionel muttering: "On page six - get curtains cleaned."
Jean: "Well, we must."
Lionel: "Why?"
Jean: " 'Cause they're filthy. Don't want my wedding guests looking at my curtains saying how filthy they are."
Lionel: "They look perfectly clean to me."
Jean: "That's 'cause you don't look."
Lionel: "Well, I don't peer at them, if that's what you mean."

A variation of this scene plays out in my home quite regularly.


  1. Here too, Nan!☺

    Gosh, I love that show.

    1. It is great fun even after many, many watchings!

  2. I am sure it plays out in most households...including mine.

  3. Oh, so true. Also true of tidying up and putting things away in their proper place.
