'Some sort of commodity called for on a daily basis'

We recently got hooked on "Cranford," a BBC miniseries about a small English town in the 1840s, full of gossips and hijinks and very handsome young doctors. I was lead to it by a friend who (POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT) let me know that it winds up with Miss Matty (Dame Judi Dench) making ends meet by opening a tea shop in her home. Which she decides to do in this scene, declaring her purpose triumphantly ...

"I never did like the notion that the world is round. ... It makes me feel so giddy."

Love it!
