I use the phrase "i'll nick your brylcreamed arsehole sunshine!" a lot, and in a wide variety of contexts, and my wife now uses it as well.

I cannot remember for the life of me where it's from - something to do with a policeman shouting at a ne'er do well - but it is ingrained in  the Trouser household lexicon

I used "equals pequals" in conversation the other day. Thought it sounded a bit odd said out loud before it dawned on me this was Jez and Mark's version of "even Stevens" and not in common usage. My colleague either knew their Peep Show or were too polite/bored to ask.

I used Ollies 'A lot of weather we've been having lately!' quite a lot.

Me and most of my family use 'Scorchio, scorchio'  when it's hot. That's well racist now isn't it

"There's your answer, Fishbulb"

I once said that to a friend who doesn't like The Simpsons (I know, right?) and got a very puzzled look.

As others i'm sure have mentioned on here previously, I am fond of describing people as "scum, subhuman scum," which may come across as judgemental to non-Partridge liking types (scum, subhuman scum).
Such a funny line, but I too have discovered that use of this line is audience specific.

I agree it is audience specific. I'd go further to say it's Partridge specific, because you need the Alan context to appreciate the specific misanthropic context in which it was originally used.

Otherwise it just sounds like an absurdly inappropriate criticism!

Can't believe no one has said 'What if your arm bursts?' yet.  I always use that in 'what if...' scenarios.

Yes, all the Cooganisms above, I'd say 'I'm doing it! I'm doing it' is the most popular one.  I'm sure people who hear it know it's from something.  At least I hope they do.

Lots of Simpsons ones.  Perhaps the most used is 'Cornsnaggit'.  Grandpa Simpson says it a lot but I use it if I stub my toe on something.

From Python 'Whining hypocritical toadies' gets a good few outings as do 'Oh no 'es snuffed it!' and 'No, no I've got enough swimming pools already thanks' from Spitting Image.

Me and my dad will also slip in a 'He's his own best friend' when we're describing someone.

"Ooh, pardon!!"

At least, I have to keep reminding myself it's a comedy pastiche of a comedy phrase

Moon on a stick.

I used this just yesterday, and had entirely forgotten that it's not a 'real' expression. No wonder my work colleague looked at me a bit odd.

And its corollory - "Cumulonimbus!" Lots of Fast Show ones have entered my vernacular. Now we're in December I'm looking forward to saying "Turkey? It's just a fat bastard chicken!!" quite a lot.

I say "proof if proof be need be" too often because I forget it's a nonsense phrase from The Day Today.

Yeah this one.  It’s a really bad habit, and I’m sure one that has caused people to silently judge me.

Don't know if you saw last nights FA Cup draw but every time yer Paul Inces of this world pulled a ball out of the bag he'd make an 'Oooh, pardon!' noise.

Do you want Fanny or do you want the Guv'nor?

I think it's from the Every Which Way films but we also enjoy a good 'My arrrrrrrrrrrse!'

Whenever anyone is labouring a point that has already been sufficiently made and understood, or if something's going on that I'm not very keen on continuing, I've been known to say "Are we going up to Z on this?" I've said it so many times I forgot where it came from, and when the KMKY CDs were reprinted last year I got a wallop of a laugh hearing it in its original context.
