Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Mark: Oh God, the first fianceé challenge and I've got a gun. An actual gun. It's OK, it's perfectly normal, this is the country. This is what farmers do. They go around shooting crows and trespassers and eventually, because of the EU, themselves.

    • Mark: He doesn't have anyone to talk to. He spends all day with the trees and animals. This is what happens when you live too far away from franchised Coffee outlets.

    • Mark: Well, this isn't what I expected. You think you're going to play Simpsons Monopoly and you end up an arsonist.

    • Mark: She's good for me, Jez. She's dragging me into the twenty-first century with its meaningless logos and ironic veneration of tyrants. It's all good, my friend.

    • Mark: Jeremy, a carton of Mars Bars milk, a small bag of marijuana and a pirated DVD of Anchorman is not important stuff.

    • Mark: I'm a bearded concubine!

    • Mark: How the fuck did it come to this? I'm getting married to a woman I may not love and I've got stupid fashionable hair all over my face.

    • Jez: Take it off! Take it off right now!
      Mark: What? Why?
      Jez: Just take it off! We'll talk about why after you've taken it off.
      Mark: What's wrong with this, wearing the same clothes? Are you embarrassed that we're...
      Jez: No! Not that! know, we're clashing.
      Mark: We're not clashing. We're matching. That's the opposite of clashing.
      Jez: It's exactly the fucking same as clashing, alright? Just take it off.
      Mark: No, it's new. I'm wearing it in.
      Jez: Alright, fine if you're taking this down to the wire, fine. I blink. You win.

    • Jez: I am a mother fucker that's literally what I am!

  • NOTES (2)

    • The actor who plays Sophie's brother went on to front UK indie band Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong.

    • Series 4 of Peep Show is filmed on a set. Previously it had been filmed in a real flat, but as it burned down between series', the (real) flat had to be rebuilt as a set.


    • Mark: The truth? You can't handle the truth.

      "You can't handle the truth" is the most famous line from Colonel Nathan Jessup, played by Jack Nicholson, in the movie A Few Good Men (1992) and it is one of the most famous lines in movie history.

    • Mark: Oh God! I'm a firestarter, a twisted firestarter.

      Mark is referring to a lyric from the song 'Firestarter'; a song from the 1997 album 'The Fat of the Land' by Prodigy.
