Pat Evans: WITH PLEASURE! Oh, and just remember this, Peggy. It was my pub before it was yours. Mine and Frank's. This was my kitchen. Along the hall was my bedroom. Mine and Frank's bedroom. We were happy here.
[Peggy slaps Pat.]
Peggy Mitchell: YOU BITCH!
[Pat returns the slap.]
Pat Evans: YOU COW!

Peggy Mitchell: This man who you're all great mates with is a thief, an extorter... and I wouldn't be surprised if he was a murderer.

Peggy Mitchell: If brains were dynamite, you lot wouldn't have enough to blow your hats off!

Peggy Mitchell: GO ON, GET OUT! GET OUT OF MY PUB!

[Peggy is talking to Sharon Rickman, who has just thrown a drink at her.]
Peggy Mitchell: Den Watts, your precious father, was scum. I knew it, everyone round here knew it, and if she [Chrissie] was married to him she knew it.

[Peggy is talking to Pauline.]
Peggy Mitchell: Your husband was a thief, your son's got HIV, and the whole lot of you are a pack of liars!

Frank Butcher: Peggy, my little passionflower!
Peggy Mitchell: I come all the way to your funeral and you don't even have the decency to be dead!

Peggy Mitchell: Oh, shut up you, peroxide old bag!
Pauline Fowler: Oh, yeah? What's this, then—strawberry blonde at seventy? That's "real", is it?
Peggy Mitchell: Shut up! I'm NOT seventy!
Pauline Fowler: No, but you look it!

[Peggy has found out about Pat and Frank's affair and is to give them their lifetime achievement award.]
Peggy Mitchell: And it's for a lifetime of irresponsibility, deceit, and plain old-fashioned wickedness. And before you all start wondering "Have I gone stark staring mad?", there's something I'd like to read out to you.
[She then reads out a letter from Frank in full.]

[Peggy has just read out the letter.]
Peggy Mitchell: So why are they still here is a bit of a mystery. But one thing I've learned since I've been married to Mr Butcher is never underestimate his capacity to make a cock-up of things. Apologies to all of you who've already received the invitations to the renewal of our wedding vows. No doubt they'll be collectors' items soon. So all that remains for me is to present the prizes.
[Peggy slaps Frank and Pat round the face.]
Peggy Mitchell: Hope you all enjoy the fireworks. Good night.
[She runs off in tears as everyone goes into stunned silence. Phil claps in background]
Frank Butcher: That's it,go on,get out.GET OUT,GET OUT!!!!!!!!

[Peggy has found out that Carla tried to con Grant.]

[She slaps Carla hard round the face.]
Peggy Mitchell: Get outta my pub.
[Clara walks out of the Vic.]
Peggy Mitchell: And to think I gave that rotten cow my special recipe for steak and kidney pudding!
Billy Mitchell: Felt that one from here, Peg.
Peggy Mitchell: Well, thank you, Billy. It's nice to be appreciated.

Little Mo: "Look i know it don't seem like it now but you will have a happy ever after, i know you will!"

Kat: "Come on sweetheart! Tell me a story. Make it about the girl who fell in love, got married and then he goes away and leaves her on her own. And she's hurting so much, that all she wants to do is crawl away somewhere and die. But she doesn't and you know why? Because she's too scared. She's too scared that if she starts crying she won't be able to stop! No, it's alright she knows what to do! She covers herself up so no one can see what a dirty horrible girl she is! Don't forget the happy ending! Where all her wishes come true and she ain't dirty anymore! Where someone loves her and she's not on her own, up 'ere.(Pointing at her head) Where she's OK and she's not hurting. I don't wanna be me anymore! Did you hear me? I... I don't wanna be me anymore!

Den Watts: Getting on your wick, BOY?

Den Watts: Where'd you come from?
Dennis Rickman: You want a diagram?!

[Dennis has received some advice from Big Mo.]
Dennis Rickman: Apparently, you put a penny in a jar for every time you do it for the first six months of marriage, then take one out for every time afterwards. And the idea is it's never empty!

[Jean has been told Sean is back.]
Jean: How long has he been back? How long?!

[Mentally ill Jean hasn't been taking her tablets]

Stacey: Is Lanette your Key Worker?

Jean: You see that's the bit they couldn't explain. How, does a careful man, doing a job he could have done with his eyes closed, how does he fall off of the scaffolding?

Stacey: Mum!

Jean: No but I'm just saying! How does a man like him just...fall? And all smashed up he was, And it was me what had to identify him, and his eyes weren't closed!

Stacey: Is Lanette your bloody key worker?!

Ruby Allen: Do you ever say anything nice about anyone?

Phil Mitchell: You're going to have to face a lot of tricky questions.
Stacey Slater: Why? Is it quiz night in the Vic again?

Bradley Branning: What is it with you? How can you be one thing one day, completely different the next?
Stacey Slater: 'Cos that's how people are, Bradley. You think you know them, you'd trust them with your life, and then they go and change on you.

Ruby Allen: I was a complete bitch the last time I saw you.
Stacey Slater: I'm a complete bitch all the time!

[Ruby is in hospital after binge drinking.]
Stacey Slater [to Johnny]: Little boys, they never learn. And she's gonna keep on payin' the price. Just like her mum, just like her sister.

[Angie is preparing to leave for Spain.]
Den Watts: Come on, Ange, don't keep the man waiting—and DON'T THINK I didn't know all the details of your sordid little plan weeks ago because I did. And, what's more, I've been to see my solicitor—and this time, you ain't getting a penny out of me, because everything's mine. You got that? Mine!

Den Watts: This is the end, Virgil! There's nowhere to run! [...] I have a great desire to break your neck, all right? But I'm not gonna risk doin' time for the likes of you. The only reason Kathy was there, is because YOU—you perverted little jerk—were her boss. She had no choice, and you used that. Never, EVER make an excuse for what you did again. You're guilty, and you're gonna pay, and if I had my way, you would've paid last night! [...] If I was you I'd run and keep on running, because the next time I see you, I'm gonna kill you!

[Den throws the loot down to him.]
Den Watts: Oh, and here's a little something from Lisa!

[Den has been ordered out of the Vic for fighting with Dennis.]
Den Watts [to Sam Mitchell]: Stairs could do with a lick of paint.

[Ian has hit Den.]
Den Watts: I always said to Pete those boxin' lessons were a waste of time!

Den Watts: Anyway, shovel and brush time, let's get this place sorted out before that jobsworth comes back and starts throwing his weight around. What's up?
[He turns around to see the fire safety inspector standing behind him.]
Den Watts: Ooooh, hello again, nice and punctual too. Princess, do us a favour, go in the office and phone up that man, see if you can put him off until tomorrow. Tax inspectors get right up your nose, don't they?

[Den is talking about Michelle.]
Den Watts: You don't know what it was like between me and her.
Sharon Watts: You and her? What you talking about you and her for? This was my best friend! She had her own Dad, what did she want my Dad for?!
Den Watts: Don't you dare give me that look!
Sharon Watts: Oh?! And what sort of look should I give you, eh? You want me to be proud? My Daddy sorts everybody out!

Den Watts: All right, darling, that's enough. Off you go.
Drunken woman: I'm not going anywhere! I'm the maid of honour!
Den Watts: I couldn't care less if you were made in Taiwan! Out!

Kate Mitchell: You sleep in bed with her.
Den Watts: It's either that or the bath.

Den Watts: I can't look after him. Babies start crying when they see my face.

Den Watts: Don't tell me, you're going to nick the bottle openers and get out the bibles.
Dot Branning: I would if I could. This ought to be a sober occasion.
Den Watts: Not much chance of that around here. What do you want me to do, serve holy water with the gin and tonics?
Chrissie Watts: Can't imagine why.

Tommy Grant: I bet you'd love to be standing in my shoes right now.

May Wright: To be partners you have to be equals!
Dawn Swann: Well that's why he left YOU, then!
[May flings Dawn down the steps.]
[This is ironic as one of the main reasons Rob left May was because she never treated him as an equal.]

May Wright: Why don't you go off with Dawn Swann? She'll give you a whole horde of swarming snot-nosed brats.

[Rob has just admitted that Dawn is aborting the baby that he impregnated her with during their liaison.]
May Wright: You know, that's what gets me: that you did it with that sort of slut. Easy come, easy go.

May Wright: I don't know what you ever saw in that chav.

[Rob talks back to her.]
May Wright: Don't you dare.

Rob Minter: Do you know, it never struck me how extraordinarily boring you are.
May Wright [gasping] How dare you speak to me like that, get back here this instant.

[May chuckles menacingly.]
May Wright: Dawn. Dawn, Dawn, Dawn. You'd be amusing if you weren't so tragic. If he loved you that much do you really think he'd have come here last week and made love with me right here on this desk?

[May sees Dawn has escaped from her bonds and believes that Rob was the one who'd released her.]

May Wright [hysterically]: I WANT MY BABY! (hysterically).

[May cradles Dawn's baby, Summer, in her arms.]
May Wright: You're mine. You're all mine.

[May sees Summer in Dawn's arms.]
May Wright: Aww, she looks like Rob.

May Wright: I'm so sorry for everything I've done, Dawn. I became a doctor to help people, not to hurt them.

[May gives Summer toys and laughs upon seeing that she likes them.]
May Wright: Oh, she likes them. You like them, don't you, darling? You see, I'd have been a good mummy. Yes, I would, wouldn't I? A good mummy.

[The police then arrive.]
May Wright: Oh, very clever, Dawn. Let me stay until they arrive. And I thought you were being kind. I could have given her ten times the life that you ever could. Remember that.
[These are her last words on the show.]

[May is cruelly confronting Dawn.]
Dawn Swann: Rob still came back to me.
May Wright: Because I told him too! "Keep the little scrubber sweet", I said to him, "whatever it takes. Who cares, she's only a cheap little tart! What difference does it make?"
Dawn Swann: That's rubbish.
May Wright: Oh really? How many weeks were you away at your mums before he phoned you begging you to come back? A week? Ten days, was it? And where was he meant to be taking you on this wonderful new life you were setting off to? Oh yes, Hull!
Dawn Swann: He told you about Hull?
May Wright: I told him. We agreed.

Pat Evans

[Pat & Peggy are arguing about Frank following his death.]
