Sarah: What you staring at me for?
Mrs Bridges: You know what I think, Sarah? I think you're eating for two. Am I right?
Sarah: I dunno what you're talking about.
Mrs Bridges: Oh yes you do, my girl! I've noticed – I'm not blind. You've been putting on weight, haven't you? Eating in between meals, dropping trays... Feeling a bit dicky in the mornings, I shouldn't be surprised?
Hudson: Is this true Sarah?
Sarah: Just 'cos I had a rotten bit of cake...
Hudson: Sarah, I demand a simple answer – are you, or are you not, expecting?
Sarah: What if I am?
Mrs Bridges: There are, what did I tell you?
Hudson: I am shocked, Sarah. Shocked to my very fibre.
Sarah: It wasn't my fault.
Mrs Bridges: The cry of the hussy, Mr 'Udson – it's never her fault. You're talking to me and Mr 'Udson, my girl. We know you don't get babies by smelling the flowers.
Sarah: It's not fair, you know. It's always me what's put upon, ever since I first come to this house. Go on, sack me. I don't care – wish I could die. You sack me without a character.
Mrs Bridges: Character? It's a bit late to talk about character!
Hudson: Mrs Bridges...
Mrs Bridges: It's the truth. Now, come along, who is he?
Sarah: I'm not saying.
Mrs Bridges: Don't know which of many, eh?
Hudson: Mrs Bridges, please...
Mrs Bridges: Well... the little trollop!
Sarah: Last time you wasn't 'orrible. You was understanding last time.
Mrs Bridges: Last time was bad luck. This time it looks like it's becoming a bad habit!
