** [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech The ensuing argument.]] ---> '''Sybil''': We have used O'Reilly three times in the last year and each time it has been a fiasco! That wall out there is still not done! You had him in to change a washer in November and we didn't have any running water for two bloody weeks! ---> '''Basil''': Well he's not really a plumber, dear. ---> '''Sybil''': Why did you hire him? ''Because he's cheap!'' And the reason he's cheap is because he's no bloody good! ---> '''Basil''': You never give anyone the benefit of the doubt! He's not brilliant... ---> '''Sybil''': Not brilliant? He belongs in a zoo! He's shoddy, he doesn't care, he's a liar, he doesn't care, he's incompetent, he's lazy and he's nothing but a half-witted, thick Irish joke! ---> '''Basil''': [[RightBehindMe Hello O'Reilly]], we were just talking about you, and then we got on to another Irish builder we knew. God, he was awful! ---> '''Sybil''': I was talking about you, Mr. O'Reilly. ** And then O'Reilly thinks Sybil is joking. [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown Not the right reaction.]]

* One of the rare times a guest has a Moment of Awesome over Basil; Basil is not happy about having a Cockney chap by the name of Mr. Brown in his hotel, especially since he is now advertising to the higher classes. He believes Mr. Brown to be an idiot, even going so far as to patronisingly add that Barcelona is in Spain, when explaining the communication problems with Manuel. When said communicaton problems begin as per usual, Mr. Brown turns around and explains the request to Manuel in '''fluent Spanish,''' much to Manuel's delight. Of course, Basil won't admit to his snobbery [[spoiler: and it turns out Mr Brown is from the CID,]] but it's nice to see Basil's rudeness get shot down when it's not called for.

* Another example of a guest being so much more ruder than Basil that we're completely on his side is the bratty boy from "Gourmet Night," and dear lord is he on a roll this time:

-->'''Basil:''' I'm fed up with you, you rancorous, coiffured old sow. Why don't you syringe the donuts out of your ear and get some sense into the dormant organ you keep hidden in that rat's maze of yours?

* In the anniversary episode, [[OnlySaneMan Polly]] finally gets tired of Basil dragging her through insane scheme after insane scheme, gives him a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech ''and'' forces him to pay her out the nose before agreeing to any further plans.

* While it ultimately backfires badly on him, Basil within another rant for Sybil, quickly silences her with a firm BigShutUp in "The Psychiatrist".
