The year: 1966. The place: Swinging London. The venue: a *gear* party in Kensington. Jim Dale flits among the *happening* party guests wearing a lavender paisley shirt and tie and black comedy sideburns. He is a Justin de Villeneuve type. The music soundtrack is Sexy Groovy Hammond Organ Vol 38.
Kenneth Connor is dressed like a 1920's film director. Bernard Bresslaw is wearing a flowery dress, a hat with feathers in, a curly wig and is carrying a hug tote bag. They are conversing.
Bernard (pointing at a young woman dancing in a white crocheted mini dress): "GORBLIMEY REG! LOOK AT THE KNOCKERS ON THAT DOLLY BIRD! I THINK I'LL ASK HER FOR THE NEXT DANCE!"
Kenneth, aka Reg, muttering angrily: "Sshhh, keep your voice daahhn! You'll give the game away! Do you want us to be booted ahht?"
Bernard: "Sorry Reg!"
Bernard (raising pitch of voice to womanish hysterical falsetto): "GORBLIMEY REG! LOOK AT THE KNOCKERS ON THAT DOLLY BIRD! I THINK I'LL ASK HER FOR THE NEXT DANCE!"
