  • Quotes (4)

    • Jeremy Clarkson: Some say there are 17 different reasons why he is banned from the Northampton branch of Little Chef. And that his favourite airline pilot is Mark Webber. Mine too, actually. All we know, of course, he's the Stig.

    • Jeremy Clarkson: As we know, for many years, we've been told, er, that Wayne Rooney is the light and the path to righteousness and we must emulate his lifestyle and, indeed, the lifestyle of his lovely wife Coleen. Now, of course, we realise he is a lazy, talentless jug-eared oaf.

    • James May: Actually, I have to agree with you. There needs to be a version of the new Range Rover that isn't for people who want to celebrate the life and work of a potato-faced shopping enthusiast.

    • Jeremy Clarkson: Now my guest tonight began his working career writing pornographical stories for a 'gentleman's' magazine. He then went on to be Communications Director for Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. So really, he's spent most of his adult life working with... penis'.
