Thanks very much for the comment about Blanche. There's no doubt that she will be missed on the show not just because of her impeccable timing and killer lines, but also her chemistry with characters like Ken, Deirdre and, most recently, Simon. We kick off this edition of TGIF (Tony Gordon, It's Friday) with Blanche in mind as we check out some of the more memorable lines from the past week.Onward:
Roy ponders the basic instincts of man and beast:
"I was just thinking how we all gravitate to our natural habitat"
(for Eddie Windass, that would be the gutter)
Rosie meticulously outlines her career path for John Stape:
"I wanna be a doctor"
(I wanna second opinion)
Kelly gives cross-dressing Graeme some pointers about accentuating his cleavage:
"Just shove some chicken fillets down ya' bra"
(...until your cup runneth over, I presume)
Bill Webster confronts John Stape after hearing Rosie's cries for help:
"You just made the biggest mistake of your life, pal"
(studying the works of 17th century English metaphysical poets?)
Becky checks the contents of her handbag before going drinking with Claire:
"Fags, emergency fags, lighter, matches, mobile, lip gloss..."
(Yup, she's all ready for Y2K)
Norris is affronted by Emily and withdraws his culinary skills:
"Oh, well, that’s the last Chicken Kiev you'll be getting off me"
(ask Graeme about chicken...)
Sean draws a reasonable conclusion when he sees the coppers pull up outside the Webster's:
"It’s the fashion police. They've finally come for Rosie"
(anything you wear may be used as evidence against you...)
Deirdre wants to know more about Ken's job as a store Santa:
"And do you have elves?"
(yes, but if you wash with this special soap, you can get rid of them)
Thanks, as always, for stopping by. Have a great weekend. See you next week here at the Hip.
