A room with a view
Memorable quotes from Fawlty Towers http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072500/quotes
Mrs. Richards: [standing next to the window] And another thing: I asked for a room with a view.
Basil Fawlty: [aside to Manuel] Deaf, mad, *and* blind.
[to Mrs. Richards as he makes a show of inspecting the view]
Basil Fawlty: This is the view as far as I can remember... Yes... Yes, this is it.
Mrs. Richards: When I pay for a view, I expect to see something more interesting than that.
Basil Fawlty: That is Torquay, madam.
Mrs. Richards: Well, that's not good enough.
Basil Fawlty: Well, might I ask what you expected to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House, perhaps? The hanging gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically...
Mrs. Richards: Don't be ridiculous. I expect to be able to see the sea.
Basil Fawlty: You *can* see the sea. It's over there between the land and the sky.
Mrs. Richards: I'd need a telescope to see that.
Basil Fawlty: Well, might I suggest you move to a hotel closer to the sea.
Basil Fawlty: Or preferably in it.
Mrs. Richards: Now listen to me. I'm not satisfied, but I've decided to stay here. However, I shall expect a reduction.
Basil Fawlty: Why? Because Krakatoa's not erupting at the moment, or...
At least I had a room with a view today when staying the night at Sognefjord hotel http://www.sognefjordhotel.no/
