When Nathan Barley says to Pingu, "Yeah, can't you see she's too fucked to laugh? You cunt", I think that's the only utterance of the word in any media where I've physically winced at the weight and venom of it. It still gets me now. It's brutal.

At the start of an episode of Mr Show with Bob and David. Bob has blown off the show to do his grocery shopping. Whilst in the store he happens to see his substitute on a TV. Upon seeing this he screams "What the fuck". This never fails to make me laugh. He has a fantastic angry swear voice.

"Did he call me Len again?! You address me by my proper title, you little bollocks!"

"Twat! That... was liquid football! SHIT!! He must have a foot like a traction engine!"

bad/good parenting: I showed the latter to my football-crazy 8 year-old son and he literally leaped out of his chair to roll around the floor with laughter. Thankfully, 'yes yes yes .... yes!' and 'thriker!' are the bits he chooses to repeat in public

In Peep Show, when Mark suddenly decides to attempt to get run over in order to avoid marrying Sophie and he lamely calls the driver a "piss kidney".

Thick of It, when Malcom barrages Phil and goes "... You mincing fucking CUNT!"
And Mannion: "I buy The Big Issue out of social embarrassment, not a FUCKING BANK!" The mounting rage is wonderful, and culminates in that series wonderfully.

Stewart Pearson's parting speech about the party being built upon 'a solid bed of cunts' is magic as well.

It is but is the build that really cracks me up.

Every moment of Mannion is gold, but in particular his swearing, and in particular particular his spat pronunciation of "fucking".

"Oh God Stewart that doesn't even FUCKING rhyme"
"Good, that means I won't have to read any more of your FUCKING e-mails"

Rik Mayall on the Bad News album after getting duffed up by Den Dennis (Nigel Planer):

Blue Jam's casual referencing of Esther Rantzen's "Cunts of Gold".

First scripted c-bomb I ever heard in a BBC comedy, and one deployed in reference to a national treasure of a show about which no-one ever publicly spoke ill.

that, and Drop the Dead Donkey's one-two of Sally losing it with 'fuck off George!' - a rarity back then even in C4 comedy, and especially in a studio one. Soon after came Gus's (I think) recollection of George going nuts in a paintball tournament and shouting 'motherfucker'

Just before Charles delivers his I love you speech to the american he dashes out of a door muttering 'fuck it', hard to articulate here but nicely delivered

Bob Mortimer as Keith

A Bit Of Fry And Laurie - Tahitian Kitchen

My favourite swearing moments are always where the swearing is bleeped out or covered up. Florence Nightingale in Big Train, Father Ted getting angry at Dougal in the Song for Europe episode.

The minister they interview in the bomb dog section of The Day Today is a recent favourite: https://youtu.be/jGTPqaNP710?t=170

Another Big Train favourite for me is Mark Heap's "If you ever say anything about me not being married again I'll put your head through the fucking wall"

I can't remember it exactly, and I'd forgot all about it until today, but the guy on Four Lions calling Waj "James fuck Bond" and "FUCKING Mr. Beans" blows my mind.

Hey, watch the, watch the language, you're paying homage to the King!

So, the swearing, and even better, Derek Small's response.

Glad to be of service.  I really like how he gets so angry that he slips out of character and just calls her an old horny slut.

My favourite part is how his volume ramps up so much under the first beep so he suddenly yells BUSTER when it stops

Fun bit of trivia: Because Tony Hale doesn't swear, he was actually just shouting the letters of the alphabet during filming.

I hate dirty language. But in Peep Show when the racist lobs a brick through the window I like Mark's progression from swearing to not. It's in reverse!

Good man
