Singing For Emmet

Hyacinth is dreading an invite to Onslow's birthday party, but changes her mind when finding out she and Richard will be picked up by Rose's wealthy Greek boyfriend. Thus Hyacinth holds a gathering at her house to impress the neighbours as she departs in the luxury vehicle. However her hopes die when a hearse arrives instead.


Hyacinth (looking for a gift for Onslow): "You surely don't imagine that I could present Onslow with something cheap and tawdry in front of Rose's wealthy gentleman friend."

Richard: "Oh, I see."

Hyacinth: "I thought something expensive, but tasteful. [she thinks]  A pair of cufflinks."

Richard: "Cufflinks for Onslow?  He never wears a shirt!"  [She buys them]
