  • Richie and Eddie haveto sneak into next Doors flat to get rid of an illegal gas pipe.

    This is possibly the most brilliant episode of the series. It is just so funny. When they are trying to convince the gas man and when they thinked they have killed him is just hilarious. When they sneak into the flat they both get distracted from their task has eddie is raiding the fridge and Richie is being his usual dirty self in their neighbours bedroom. There is not a dull moment from start to finish. This is definetly a series classic.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Eddie is hitting Richie over the head, he either drops or throws the saucepan on the floor, in the next shot it is back in his hand. (This is probably due to the number of takes they had to do for any one scene during the whole three series, if you watch Bottom Fluf you'll know what I mean!!)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Eddie: (Writing in the Gasmans journal) Uhh... No problem with the meter in this flat, don't check for another three hundred years. Nice people, especially the bloke with the glasses who was not holding a frying pan. Uhh... Nice atmos altogether really.
      Richie: Alright dickens get on with it.
      Eddie: (Still writing in journal) Left in high spirits, to indulge in my hobby of Bus surfing.

    • Gasman: How do you keep it so warm in here then?
      Richie: Uhh... We make love. Uhh not together, on our own!

    • Richie: Right... I'll bet another weeks worth of washing up.
      Eddie: I'll see your weeks washing up, and I'll raise you four trips to the Laundrette, 3p in real money and one cleaning and disinfecting, right round the back of the lavatory bowl.
      Richie: Well that's cleaned me out.
      Eddie: Right, what you got?
      Richie: Right, three pairs.
      Eddie: What do you mean three pairs? We're only aloud five cards!

    • Eddie: Here we go then. Three mugs of steaming cold tea... better drink it before it gets warm.

    • Eddie: I'll just put the kettle on.
      Gasman: "Put the kettle on"?
      Eddie: Oh, um, put the kettle on… the floor.

    • Richie: Oh, Eddie. Answer the door.
      Eddie: I don't have to, mate, (Holds up bet slip) not for the next 6 years.
