Maltscouse with recalcitrant old lags

Maltscouse: I think some of you wrongly assumed that I had left you for good. But, as you see, nothing could be further from the truth. Only… I am somewhat disturbed to hear what has been happening in my absence. So now… We’re going to have a new regime here, based not on lenience and laxity but on discipline, hard work and blind, unquestioning obedience. Feet will not touch the floor. Lives will be made a misery. [At the door] I am back, and I am in charge here.[Maltscouse leaves, but as he walks down the corridor, Fletch and Godber start singing]

Fletch and Godber: [singing] For ‘e’s a jolly good fellow, for ‘e’s a jolly good fellow, for ‘e’s a jolly good fellow, and so say all of us. Juddy, Daisy and other inmates: [joining in] And so say all of us, and so say all of us. [Maltscouse smiles proudly and continues to march to the exit] For ‘e’s a jolly good fellow, for ‘e’s a jolly good fellow, for ‘e’s a jolly good fellow… And so say all of us!

    Ahh Grumpy Mick. Hope Daisy is happy. He won’t look near as good in navy blue.

  2. Peter Fuller says

    You surprise! I assumed that you would be aware that all footballers, all women* and almost all men look better in navy blue.
    * the late Sheila Scotter who was never seen in public dressed in any colour combination but black & white was the solitary exception to prove the rule.

  3. Luke Reynolds says

    Peter, I’m not aware of Sheila Scotter. Will be doing a google search. Have to admit Jordan Russell looked much better in navy blue than he did in black & white.
