  • Quotes (54)

    • Lee: (To Duncan) Just out of interest, when you finish having sex, do you say: "I'm out"? Duncan: Yeah. Frankie: The worst thing is his foreplay, which is "I'm in for 40%".

    • (On Jeffrey Archer writing all of his stories with a felt-tip pen) Dom: Hang on. He wrote a book when he was in prison. So all we need to know to work out if this true is, can you get felt-tip pens in prison? Natalie: Anyone? Lee: Frankie, you'll know this. What can you get in prison? Frankie: It depends just how much loving you're prepared to give.

    • Angus: Yes, it's the truth, Dom was at school with Osama bin Laden and still remembers those happy playground games like tag, stuck in the mud and die, infidel, die.

    • Angus: One useful tip, when spotting a liar, is that they often give themselves away by a variety of facial movements, unless, of course, the question you ask them is: "Have you had botox?"

    • Angus: John's right. Yes, apparently, it was a lie. Pam St. Clement was not a member of the British abseiling association and has not abseiled down mount Rushmore. Although, she did mount the north face of Frank Butcher.

    • John: I think it's false, but go for true if you wanna go for true, because you said you've never.. Lee: Alright, hissy mother, alright. Alright, then we'll just go with you. John: No, no, no. Lee: No. You've made your bed, you can lie on it. I doubt it very much, but John's always right. David: I don't understand why we have to sit here and watch this shit. Now, for God's sake make your f*cking mind up!

    • David: Very obsessive-compulsive people can sometimes do that, they sort of file their various excreta. John: How would you know? David: How would I know? John: About filing those sorts of things. David: Well, I'm a knowledgeable man, and it's part of my knowledge. You know, if I-- If I knew how I knew everything I knew, then I'd only be able to know half as much, because it would all be clogged up by where I know it from. So I cannot always cite my sources, I'm sorry.

    • David: (about Madonna) Maybe, by removing the toilet seats, she's created this sort of mystique, "oh, she has to remove her toilet seats, otherwise people will want to sell them", and in reality no-one would want to sell something that her old arse had touched.

    Trivia (2)

    • This is the only episode in which the Special Guest Person stands next to the panel near the audience. In the other episodes, the Guest Person stands between Angus and the panel.

    • Angus ends this episode with the line "We leave you with the news that...". This is the same way he ended almost every episode of Have I Got News For You when he hosted.

    Allusions (5)

    • Angus Abraham Lincoln once said: "You can fool some of the people all of the time, or all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time". Mind you, he also said, "I'm looking forward to going to the theatre tonight". Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was the President of the United States when he was assassinated while attending a stage production at Ford's Theatre.

    • Claudia: (about David) I'm sitting next to Quincy! Claudia is referring to the main character in Quincy, M.E. (1976-1983), a medical examiner who would solve cases by finding small clues that everyone else had overlooked, and investigating those clues until he got to the truth.

    • Angus: Companies think carefully about who should endorse their products: if it's men's cosmetics, they get David Beckham, if it's women's fragrance they get Scarlett Johansson and if it's frozen sheep offal in batter, they get Kerry Katona! This is a reference to Kerry Katona being the face of frozen food supermarket, Iceland.

    • Angus Bruce only has one picture in his house. It's a picture of himself which he keeps in the loft, which remains youthful while Bruce gets older and older. This is a reference to Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray about a man who wanted eternal youth, and bartered his soul to get it!

    • Anton I recently hung a picture in Bruce Forsyth's bathroom. Lee Did you do the adjustments while he just stood behind you, saying, "Higher, Lower" This is an allusion to Bruce's Play Your Cards Right
