  • Quotes

    • Andrew: Best Thing About being on Neighbours:
      1: They work really, really fast
      2: They can't remember storylines either.
      3: They shoot so far in advance, they exist in a permanent state of Deja Vu.
      4: They have really good coffee on set.
      5: Neighbours girls are really hot up close. And they smell good.

    • Andrew: There's a point in your career as a broadcaster that when people start to put a wig on and rip you off on rival channel parody shows, you really know that you've made an impact. However, when you're asked to play yourself in Neighbours, that means something else all together about penetration into Pop Culture.
