out of season. Melvyn Hayes replys. Rita
continues to hassle him"out of season, our can

Hayes retorts "yeah well, we've had a very hard
Undetered Rita carries on"I'll have a pound of
them mate" banter is hurled back at her"nah
African foot rot".Rita looks puzzled, "African
foot rot?" she cries,but still persists in
trying to buy from the stool.
Rita get's told off again."ere look ere, if yer
don't want the goods, don't muck em' about". Rita
fires back "But I do want em', I wanna buy em
that's what I come ere for". they get more
shirty with her until Hayes fills her basket up with melons
and pushes her away.
As Rita leaves she is seen and heard shouting "You're
crackers, that's what's wrong with you, you're crackers,
Gertcha" she slowely dissolves into the crowd,
and is not seen again.
Rita gets listed in the colourful credits at the end of
the film. And her mop of flaming red hair stands out a treat.
