  • From the first episode: "Good God, woman, you strut around like some sort of transvestite Mussolini!"
  • The episode where Joyce and Sheila start a gossip war- specifically, the Running Gag where Jonathan keeps asking what everyone's saying about him, and everyone answers 'Oh, just the usual.'
    Jonathan: I demand to know what you mean by 'just the usual'!
    Sheila: Oh... you know.
  • George declaring that he wants to be remembered as the man who got an apology out of Sheila Sabatini.

  • Sheila ending a tirade to Jonathan with this line: "And stop behaving like a bimbo on steroids!"
  • This quote about Sheila's mother:
    Jonathan: Look, both of my parents are dead. And when they disappeared, one after the other, I spent ages thinking, 'They'll never see me get married. They won't be around anymore, at Christmas.' The one thing- the one thing that made me feel better was that when they were alive, I included them in everything!
    Sheila: My mother saw me get married. We had to stop three times because she was heckling the priest.
  • This bit from when Neil and Jonathan are discussing an affair that Neil is having (paraphrased):
    Neil: I thought affairs were meant to be fun!
    Jonathan: Neil, nobody ever sends Happy Adultery cards!
