Big fan of Richard Lewis' "who the fuck are you? [insert name here]?" in Curb.

A favourite is when Larry decides he wants to be a car salesman.

"Who the fuck are you? Willy Loman?"

Haha literally last night watched the one where Larrys being auctioned off for charity and he goes "What is this, Roots?"

I liked it when Larry dips his nose in his coffee and he asks him if he's a goose.

Cornell Crawford: Well choke my chicken! Your name's Pear right? You lived next door to Frank, am I right?

Arlo Pear: Yeah.

Cornell Crawford: Small world ain't it?

Arlo Pear: Too small.

Cornell Crawford: Frank says you're a real asshole and if you fuck with me, I'll kill you, you understand?

My favourite line from Richard Lewis in Curb is when his girlfriend's had an allergic reaction and he says "Know what would match her head? A dress made of turnips and blood." He gets a laugh out of Larry with that one.

HANK: See, Bobby, I have a cousin named Dusty. He’s the one with the beard. Uh, the one on the left.

BOBBY: We’re related to ZZ Top?!

HANK: Not so loud, son! See, rock stars have different morals and values. Now, Dusty’s coming by the house tomorrow. Do not ask him what time it is. He always says "it’s time to rock".

The tiny disdainful wheeze Judge puts in the delivery of "time to rock" makes it magical for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBNwh4KBWLI

There's an American Dad episode where they all go on holiday and Roger the alien disguises himself as an elderly woman named "Abigail. Abigail Lemonparty" who always came to the resort with her husband Omar, but now he's dead and she's brought his ashes to scatter. Anyway, at the end of his subplot he scatters the ashes over the ocean at sunset, exclaiming, "Thank you Omar! Thank you for showing me I can go on without you!" As the ashes blow away he screams,

"I KNOW WHAT YOU DID TO OUR KIDS, YOU MONSTER!" followed by a chuckled, "Why can't I leave things nice?"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9U3TSt67S7w

It's the fact that there's no Omar, no kids, it's all something he made up.

American Dad! again.

"You know how you said, 'Try to be friends with the Senator's daughter?"

"...Yeah?"

"Well, it began like that, and then middle middle middle, and then I sold her to a drug-dealer, the end."

Ted:
Right Dougal, come on, you can't sit here watching television all night, it's a big waste!
*Turns off TV*
Chewing gum for the eyes!

Dougal:
Er, no thanks Ted.

I've been rewatching PhoneShop again recently, it's a bit of a headache in places but I maintain it's a solid sitcom with a great cast. Watching the series 3 opener last night when everyone unwittingly eats a load of weed muffins, one particular line from an extremely pranged out Ashley has had me laughing so much:

"I done a fart, and I didn't know what it was. I started crying because I couldn't understand it."

Ah yeah, David Hoyle is fantastic, græskar. This Melancholic Youth bit is one of my favourites, packed with venom at political complacency. The whole thing need to be watched to appreciate the rhythm, so it's hard to pick a line out of context, but

"... and, yeah, emboldened by wine, I asked a question ..."

(around midway through) says so much in so few words.

Phoneshop was so good, ridiculously underrated. Has Martin Trenaman ever been bad in anything?

Phoneshop's one of those ones I've not actually seen again since I ditched linear telly. by that point it was one of them ones you get kinda fed up watching because it was on the idle repeats merry-go-round of 10-3 telly so I'd just be constantly catching the odd half an episode and stuff all the time. Should bung it on the list of things to rewatch since it's been a while

Fletch, in the Porridge remake? (I'm assuming, haven't watched it obviously, who the fuck would)

edit: oh, he's not fletch. told you i hadn't seen it.

was just out on a bike ride and puffing up a long winding hill when a line from Bottom which I still don't really even "get" came to mind:

"I'll see you in a mo! A sex mo!"

Written down I realise it's pure delivery but christ I was winded laughing.

Haha, I'm trying to recall the scene now and you might be right. If it's not the QI theme then it's some other shitty pleasant library reggae.

Fuck it I'm gonna start a PhoneShop thread. FUCK IT.
