    2. The north is better than the south.

    3. Gossips might be quite annoying but how is anyone going to find anything out without them?

    14. And Mrs Walker would not have stood for any of this nonsense.


    15. Nobody actually knows what Fat Brenda from Streetcars looks like.

    But it's probably something like this.

    16. The middle classes are evil.

    17. All of them.

    18. Your mother will get progressively sluttier with age.

    19. Belts tell many stories.

    20. Sometimes the biggest dramas can arise out of the little things in life.
