If anyone ever says “six months” my internalised response is “SIX MONTHS??! TO RAISE MONEY FOR A JAM FESTIVAL ISN’T THAT RATHER STUPID?”

But there’s only a few people I know who I could actually say it to.

I've just been looking for a bit of Alas Smith & Jones (the cabaret duo at the end) when I stumbled across this and realise that I still say, "An' all that an' everything else" frequently to this day.

"Of that, there's no doubt."  I fear I say it way too much, and probably with a Partridge lilt, without any sense of where it comes from. (Is it the radio show?)

Also "proof if proof be need be" - I know where that comes from, but with no sense that some other people may not.

I have this with eighteen months (and the boardroom drugs sketch from Brass Eye). I also enjoy balancing a lighter on its end, very deliberately.

"NEVER FUCKING ROLL ON THE SHABBAT!"

"SHOMER FUCKING SHABBOS" is a phrase which has been rattling around in my head for the past couple of days.  Thinking about it, I don't think that a single week goes by where at least one quote from The Big Lewbowski doesn't enter my mind.

A friend of mine is partnered up with a lady called Catherine, and whenever he mentions her, part of me wants to respond with "Oh, Catherine! You're so BLOODY HEAVY!" from Adam and Joe's toy parody of 'The English Patient'.

Probably a few from those, actually, such as "you little tin twat!"

A friend and I have this exchange on a regular basis
Hey, I'm not messing with your special lady.

She's not my special lady... she's my fucking lady friend. I'm just helping her conceive.

It is, but he also says it in one of the sports reports in On The Hour and I think a few other times in the early 'canon'. It's one of those stealth catchphrases, like Lee and Herring's "sorry, I didn't think".

Trabuch and I must be a lot alike, as I say "of that there's no doubt" AND "proof if proof be need be" probably every week.

The passive/aggressive way he says, "It's a good idea, I agree with it." is superb.

It's so obvious that he has been overruled at some point and forced to say it, but that backstory only exists due to Coogan's delivery of those 8 words.

Oh, two from Spaced...

In response to a question about what I think of something: "I like them, I think they're good."

When I want to tell someone to go somewhere: "Go there."

Oh, and from Withnail & I..

"Alright here?"

Saying "I AGREE" in a heavy Welsh accent, like John Thomson in the foyer in the Steve Coogan video.

Scouse accent! I also do this, as well as "TOO UNREALISTIC!"

Similarly, I've reflexively agreed that "I love pubs on the way back" to some bemusement at my Roy Mallard inflection!
