For years, I watched this show as a PR whore, who works in Guff PR and drinks too much and laughed!!!
Some fabulous quotes sweetie, mummy loves you!
Eddie: Patsy hasn’t eaten since 1974.
Patsy: A crisp, darling. A crisp.
Eddie: They don’t matter, do they, darling?… Awards, Pats?
Patsy: Oh, Eddy. We’ve been here before.
Eddie: It’s just… you know… I WANT one. I don’t just want one, darling, I NEED one. My career is on a toboggan run of failure at the moment… I just need one. It’s the only thing that seems to mean ANYthing these days… I need one now before the menopause drags me into her gaping jaws. Before my creative hormonal oil-well dribbles to a halt. Before my bottom becomes just a patch-work quilt of monkey glands, darling.
Saffie: But, Mom, menopause can be a very exhilarating and positive experience for a woman.
Eddie: Oooh, yes. And the curse is a blessing and childbirth is painless. No. Unless that gaping hole on my mantle piece is filled pretty soon, darling, I might as well… I might as well lick this light-switch and do us all a favour, darling…
Eddie: I did tell you the facts of life didn’t I sweetie?
Saffie: If you mean that time you sat on my bed and shook me awake at two in the morning, stoned out of your brain, and slurred into my ear ‘By the way sweetie, people have it off,’ then yes, you told me the facts of life.
Patsy: I can get you a man.
Eddie: Well, how?
(and Bubble – I love Bubble)
Bubble: I turned on the, ah, watchamacallit this morning. I want to say telephone. No, that’s not right. You look at it.
Bubble: That’s it.
Patsy: One whiff of a cocoa bean and our customers would fly like vampires before garlic. Jeremy’s must remain a sterile oasis, free from street eaters and coffee carriers. Aseptic and razor-sharp as our customers hipbones. These women shop for lunch! labels are their only sustenance! Their skeleton legs in Manolos have worn trenches down the pavement of Sloane Street. Their arm sinews have just enough muscles left in their arm to lift up a credit card.
And to finish:
So to Heather@NotefromLapland – The Office – alas non!
and Mango Bean – London City Mum – Kath&Kim pah!!
and to Annie – Blackadder – I nearly went for that one!!
But for me it’s Patsy & Adina – Absolutely Fabulous, is the best comedy show ever so blog off!!
