Memorable dialogue

Jack Sugden: "You're not looking for solutions, you're looking for a scapegoat! Seddon, or me. Or even Gwen, anybody except yourself!"
David Reece: "Seddon crucified me!"
Jack Sugden: "Seddon is a very particular sort of professional. He's concerned with his life and his reputation. He uses other people for his own purposes. If you choose to get involved with that sort of person then you mustn't complain at the consequences. He's not on the artistic board of Oxfam!"
