    I saw quite a few of the Carry on stage shows while on holiday with my family during the late 60’s and early 70’s. Though I remember little now, one of the funniest moments of this play happened when Charles Hawtrey as Dimple was handing out pills to a line of reluctant patients……“One for you, one for you and one for you…” At this moment a young child cried out in the audience and Hawtrey replied…"No none for you…! One for you, one for you….and so on. This comeback brought the house down with laughter. I don’t think I had ever heard anything so loud.
