Episode Summary

EDIT
Andy has realised that fame is not all it is cracked up to be, when his sitcom receives terrible reviews.

The public, however, give him encouragement. He's recognised by a homeless man and his "biggest fan" in a pub.

But when Andy and his friends head to a classy bar, he discovers that even David Bowie wants to mock him, in the form of a song - "the little fat man who sold his soul".moreless

    • Greg: How's your sitcom going?
      Andy: Yeah good, good.
      Greg: The reviews. Very harsh, very harsh. I think I've got one right here. I've been meaning to throw it away.
      Andy: Throw it away then.
      Greg:(finds review in his wallet) Oh no, 'When the whistle blows: As i watched this abysmal time warp comedy, i half expected somebody to shout "I'm free" and for Andy Millman to exclaim: Mmm Betty, the cats just shat out the worst sitcom of all time'

    • [Andy is talking on a mobile to a crazed fan]
      Andy: Oh, Pete, I've gotta go mate, because life's too short.

    • [Maggie is offering suggestions to a distraught Andy about other television shows he could possibly appear on]
      Maggie
      : There's Celebrity Love Island.
      Andy
      : Why would I do a show that when I watched it, I was praying for a tsunami?

    • [Darren yawns as Andy and he watch an episode of "When the Whistle Blows"]
      Andy: It's bad.
      Darren: It's not bad, is it?
      Andy: It is.
      Darren: No, no. Bad suggests that, you know, it's evil or something. You know it's not.. It's poor. It's rubbish. It's shit. It's a shitcom!
      Andy: It's a shitcom? Well, we've sorted that out then.

    • Andy: [referring to a bad review of When the Whistle Blows] No, don't pop it in the scrapbook. Put the good ones in the scrapbook.
      Barry: What... what good ones?
      Andy: There's no good ones?
      Agent: Uh, best one was the Telegraph.
      Andy: What'd they say?
      Agent: They didn't review it.

    • Andy: I'm an entertainer too.
      David Bowie: What do you do?
      Andy: I'm in a sitcom.
      Maggie: It's called "When The Whistle Blows". Have you seen it?
      David Bowie: I haven't, no, is it any good?
      Heckler: (Off screen) Na, it's shit.
