I forgot "Hospital"...
What with all the pseudo-running from the papparazzi that Patsy does and then going under the knife to look younger for a magazine. And boy do we ever see that knives were involved in the procedure!
Eddy's reason for undergoing surgery is much funnier, of course. Love how they both order drugs from a menu at the hospital. And bubbly...
All the guest stars, too. Even for AbFab it must be a record. Helena Bonham-Carter, Richard E. Grant, Germaine Greer, Suzy Quatro, gosh!
OK, enough name-dropping. Love Eddy's subtle t-shirt - much better than hospital gowns. And that caribbean nurse which had appeared before as a masseuse. The magazine gals were on top form visiting Patsy!
There! I *do* have A favourite episode after all.
Surprised to see so many people who chose episodes from Season 5! Makes me happy
France would be my pick, followed by a number from Season 2 (specifically Hospital, New Best Friend and Poor). I really loved Small Opening too - absolutely riotous! (Although I think you have to have a pretty good knowledge of the first few seasons to get the play.)
My favourites are Small Opening "Oh Eddie, is it... is it a bee?" "Oh it's a small shoe!"
And Panickin' "Minnie? Minnie Driver?" "Yes Minnie Driver is coming here yes," "Is it a dwarf?" "What?" "Is it a dwarf?" "What? Why is she saying that?" "IS IT A DWARF!" "No it's Minnie Driver! She's a huge hollywood star!" "What's she been in?" "She was in good..." "good head hunting!" "I like Minnie Driver she was in circle of friends" "Oh I know who you mean... isn't she one of those ENGLISH actresses, the kind that's always asking for freeeeeee clothes!"
The only episode I really don't like is "New Best Friend"....there's tons of funny lines, but asa story I don't like Patsy & Eddie to be apart. It was a needed episode though because you really get how their friendships work.
As for my favorite definetely "The Last Shout"....(if that counts since technically it's two episodes or a movie)...when Patsy & Eddie are walking down the street in the 60's clothes telling everyone around them to be happy. They both look so good. Plus I really like this 'cause you get to see Patsy's flat for the first and only time. And did anyone notice how amazing the hair was in this episode? Like Patsy's hair and make-up when she came out of the cabin in the black robe was AMAZING! She's never looked so beautiful!!
