        Manny: Yeah but what if that doesn't work?
        Fran: Yeah, yeah, what are you going to do if that doesn't work?
        Bernard: You want to know what I'll do?

        (Manny tuts)
        Bernard: "...when this zany pair team up with bitchy, neurotic neighbour Pam things are sure to be a riot of laughs". Where do they get this crap?

        Bernard: Why does it have to be fancy?! I just want sausage, mash and a bit of cake. Not twigs fried in honey or a donkey in a coffin!

      • Bernard: Ha-ha! Naughty little passport! Hiding in the crisps again!
