    Any quotes you guys know of that presents Mr Birling as a social climber in Act 1 of The Inspector Calls? So far I have:
    "Same port you father gets from him"
    "Good dinner too, Sybil. Tell cook from me."
    "Giving us the port, Edna?"

    Not a quote, but his provincial accent reveals his background, in stark contrast with his current situation.
