  • This is my least favorite episode of Extras, and it still is very, very good! A testament to how great this show is.

  • Quotes (6)

    • Les Dennis: The only people laughing were that bunch of gays. Andy: Nothing wrong with gays. Les Dennis: No, I know. But they'll laugh at anything. No victory making a bunch of gay fellas laugh. They'll laugh at anything. Look at that Graham Norton.

    • Les Dennis: [Calls 'Heat' magazine] I just spotted Les Dennis, the comedian and impressionist and actor Les Dennis. I just spotted him shopping in New Bond Street. Magazine Representative: Doubt he can afford much around there, can he? Les Dennis: Well, he can, because I just saw him, and he was spending a fucking shit-load of cash, all right? So put that in. Make sure you put that in.

    • Andy: Have you got anything for me at all? Agent: Loads of stuff. Do you fancy a panto in Guilford with Les Dennis? Andy: No. What, that's it? Agent: Yeah. Andy: You said there were loads of stuff! Agent: I thought you'd go with that one.

    • Agent: Seriously, talk to me. Andy: Why am I not getting any acting roles? Agent: I've been thinking about this, and I'm glad you brought it up. I've got a feeling it could be your shape. It is a very unusual shape and I'm not sure who would be looking for it. Could you maybe do a bit more exercise? Andy: Could you maybe do a bit more work? Agent: Well, no, we can banter all we like, but, I mean, all I'll say is, if you insist on remaining, you know, a blob, could you maybe at least get a tan? Andy: They're looking for a fat bloke with a tan, are they? What's that for, Oliver Stone's "Story of Buddha"?

    • Les Dennis I even considered suicide. Andy: Oh. Les Dennis: Yeah, actually thinking: I'm gonna end it all - I'm thinking: I'll do it live on telly, that'll show her. And I was thinking about it, Melinda Messenger came in - lovely girl, she was chatting away... Andy: Took your mind off it? Les Dennis: Yeah, I was looking at her tits.

    • Les Dennis: And I was thinking about it, Melinda Messenger came in... Melinda Messenger was a glamour model - a 'Page 3 stunna' to use British slang. She has large, (plastic) breasts - probably a head too, I've never really looked up that high.
