[reading her own tape measure] As I expected. 'Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way.'

Bert: Uncle Albert, I got a jolly joke I save for just such an occasion. Would you like to hear it?
Uncle Albert: I'd be so grateful.
Bert: Well it's about me granddad, see, and one night he had a nightmare. So bad, he chewed his pillow to bits. To bits. The next morning, I says, "How do you feel, Granddad?" He says, "Oh not bad, a little down in the mouth."

Bert: Bert will look after you. Like I was your own father. Now who's after you?
Jane: Father is.
Bert: What?

Bert: Reminds me of a guy I know who got a nice cushy job in a watch factory.
Uncle Albert: What does he do?

[singing] You've got to grind, grind, grind, at that grindstone / Though childhood slips like sand through a sieve / And all too soon they've up and grown / And then they've flown / And it's too late for you to give.

A British bank is run with precision / A British home requires nothing less / Tradition, discipline and rules / Must be the tools / Without them: disorder, catastrophe, anarchy / In short, you have a ghastly mess!

Winds from the east... Mist comin' in... Like somethin' was brewin', about to begin... Can't put me finger on what lies in store... But I feel what's to 'appen, all 'appened before...!

What did I tell ya? There's the whole world at your feet. And who gets to see it? But the birds, the stars and the chimney sweeps.

Kindly do not attempt to cloud the issue with facts.

Mary Poppins: Chim Chiminy, Chim Chiminy, Chim Chim Cher-ee/When you're with a 'sweep, you're in glad company.
Bert: Never was there a more happier crew/Than them what sings Chim Chim Chiree Chim Chiroo! Chim Chim Chiminy Chim Chim Chiree Chim Chiroo...

Horseman: View hallo!
Horse: Oh, yes, definitely. A view hallo.
Fox: View hallo? Faith and begora, it's them redcoats again!

[singing] It's grand to be an Englishman in 1910 / King Edward's on the throne; it's the age of men.

Mary Poppins: So if the cat has got your tongue, there's no need for dismay / Just summon up this word and then you've got a lot to say / But better use it carefully or it could change your life...
Busker: For example...
Mary Poppins: Yes?
Busker: One night I said it to me girl, and now me girl's me wife.
[Wife hits him with tambourine]
Busker: Ow! And a lovely thing she is, too.

[singing] A man has dreams of walking with giants/ To carve his niche in the edifice of time/ Before the mortar of his zeal/ Has a chance to congeal/ The cup is dashed from his lips/ The flame is snuffed a-borning/ He's brought to wrack and ruin in his prime.
