    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Stephen: What begins with A, has six Cs, and no Bs?
        Clive Anderson: Is it the Welsh Alphabet?

      • Stephen Fry: Andersen survived to become a tall, gangling, gay, vegetarian writer of fairy tales, who suffered from dyslexia, agoraphobia, and the fear of being burned or buried alive, but some 128 years after his death the discriminating voters at AmIAnnoying.com still rate the tortured hands as less annoying than his cuddly named-same Clive.

      • Stephen (about Hans-Christian Andersen): He was well gay, yes. He was well, well gay. Big, big butter user.

      • Clive Anderson (in a round of Odd One Out with people called Anderson or Andersen): Hans-Christian is the odd one out, because he's dead, and none of the rest of us are at the time of this recording. Pamela is the only one who videoed her honeymoon, so she's the odd one out. I'm the odd one out because I'm here. And Gillian Anderson, bear with me, is the odd one out because she's the only one who isn't an odd one out.

      • Clive: I think I've come up with the right, though possibly also wrong, answer.

      • Clive: It's the one thing men can do now. 'Cause women can do absolutely anything else, apart from open jars. Once women work out how to do that, we're finished.

      • Meera (about octopuses): They use their third right arm to transfer the sperm to the female. Which is kind of handy, 'cause it needs the other seven free to hold the kebab and the remote control...

      • Bill: Is it a conceptual question? The blue whale, a very vain animal, perhaps the largest thing it has to swallow is it's pride.
        Stephen: Or a very gullible animal, it'll swallow anything.

      • Stephen: What do you think is the largest thing a blue whale can swallow?
        Clive: Another blue whale.

      • Stephen (about the Lion's Mane Jellyfish): A sting that can occasionally be fatal.
        Clive: Occasionally fatal? How many times has it got to be fatal to matter?
