I do think that Susan demonstrates that dry wit, especially when dealing with Roger. The sequence in SW where she finishes his sentences is a classic:

“Can I tear the paper off?” said Roger. “Good. Garibaldi. That’s squashed flies. What about opening this box? We’re bound to want to. . . .”
“Shut up just a minute.
One bag of potatoes. . . . What’s that other bag?”
“Beans,” said Bridget.
“Three slabs of sticky cake. . . .”
“A whole box of chocolate,” said Roger. “Nut and raisin kind, in slabs. Let’s . . .”
“Leave them alone,” said Susan.
