    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Gino offers Tony an 'incentive' of a bottle of 1997 Coeur de Cuvée to help him with the auditor. This is a good champagne.

      • Tony offers Miss Merchant lunch at The Ivy. This is one of London's top theatre restaurants, opened in 1917 by Abel Glandellini and Mario Gallati.

      • The English game-show host Les Dennis plays himself in this episode. He's found stealing everything he can from his hotel room.

      • Gino gets on the wrong side of the visiting auditor, Ms Merchant, nicknamed "The Ball Cruncher" - and she lives up to her name.

      • There is a good scene in this episode when Tony the cool Concierge leads the staff in a capella version of the song Under the Boardwalk.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Tony: Well, believe it or not, outside of the hotel I never do anything illegal or immoral. I drink tea, play with the kids, and watch crap television. The point being, I'll bend the law for the guests, not myself.

      • Tony: (on the stock audit) First of all, I find the term 'bribe' to be offensive.
        Jackie: What would you rather we call it?
        Tony: The more commonly used term is 'incentive'.
        Gino: This is why he is the best man for the job.
        Tony: Now, let me see if I understand this. Your stock figures are nothing but a bunch of random numbers plucked out of the sky.
        Jackie and Gino: Correct.
        Tony: And you'd like Miss Merchant to validate these figures, and in doing so jeopardise her career as a respected and honest auditor.
        Jackie and Gino: Correct.
        Tony: Okay, one question for you: what is in it for me?
        Jackie: Of course, your incentive.
        Tony: Oh, you do learn fast.

      • Charlie: I didn't know Derek had kids.
        Tony: Neither does his current wife. He's got about six of them. Six different kids from six different lap dancers.

      • Thurrock: (at Reception) Could I just have a room please? Is that possible? Could you just reach over and press those little buttons of yours and make it happen?
        Anna: Sir, sarcasm is the lowest form of wit.
        Thurrock: I'm tired and it's all I've got. Now, give me a room!

      • Gino: (about the auditor) I have three bottles of Scandinavian melon liqueur that was banned six years ago. In laboratories, it made monkeys blind, but supermodels can't get enough of it. I'm arrested if she find my supply.

      • Derek: (to his son) How's your mother?
        Adam: Dunno.
        Derek: Well, when's the last time you saw her?
        Adam: Dunno.
        Derek: Last week, last night, what?
        Adam: Well, I don't know. When was the last time you saw her?
        Derek: 1987.

      • Anna: Ms Merchant.
        Gino: The Ball Cruncher!
