Patsy: "How much did this set you back?"

Patsy: "Oh, well, in that case, it's fabulous.."

Eurydice Colette Clytemnestra Dido Bathsheba Rabelais Patricia Cocteau Stone, more commonly known as Patsy Stone, is a fictional character on the UK television series Absolutely Fabulous, portrayed by actress Joanna Lumley.
Patsy was the last of a string of children born to an ageing bohemian mother in Paris. She and Edina Monsoon were childhood friends, and since her mother despised and neglected her—regarding her more as a rival than a daughter—she came to rely on the Monsoons for most of her shelter, comfort, and food (though she has only been seen eating twice since 1973). She mentioned that her mother would have had an abortion, though she mistook her pregnancy for the onset of the menopause. The first few years of her life were spent locked in a room, and the rest of her childhood was dismal by Patsy's own description, without friends, parties, or presents. She claims to have blocked out everything before 1968, though occasionally memories come back to her in the form of flashbacks. She is an outrageous, narcissistic, nymphomaniacal, past-her-prime fashion model and "ex-Bond girl" (although her only "actual" Bond films were Bond Meets Black Emmanuelle, Boldfinger, and The Man with Thunder Balls – Joanna Lumley was a genuine Bond Girl in On Her Majesty's Secret Service) who drinks and smokes heavily. She shares a codependent parasitic existence with Edina. This relationship usually results in hilarious, albeit dysfunctional, behaviour and over-the-top conflicts. Patsy was born on 30 October, although her actual age is never clearly divulged; she often states herself to be between 39 and 43. In one episode ("Paris"), her passport states she was born in 1919, although this seems unrealistic. In one episode ("Cold Turkey") a nurse guesses that she is around 65 years old. Patsy also has a sister named Jackie, whom Eddy abhors and who twice tried to kill Patsy with drug overdoses. Jackie intimidates Patsy into stating that Patsy is the elder of the two. In the same episode, Jackie reveals that she is 72 years old, to which Patsy replies "My God, then how old does that make me?"; suggesting that Patsy has lied about her age so often that she can no longer remember her real age.
