‘Mrs Slocombe, are you free?’ ‘Yes, Mr Peacock, I’m free.’

Vale, Mollie Sugden, she of Mrs Slocombe, the Groan Dame of Are You Being Served?

Mrs Slocombe’s great contribution to Anglohumour was her pet routine, as in, ‘Animals are very psychic; the least sign of danger and my pussy’s hair stands on end.’ So it was that, on Wednesday nights during the seventies and eighties, at some simultaneous moment across the green dark land, millions of English could be heard snorting into their Horlicks. Good times.
