    I loved the bit at the end of season 2 episode.. something or other, when after going on a mission to recliam Tim's armwork. As Mike closes the gate he says, "Where's Tyres?" and it cuts to a shot of Tyres near a set of traffic lights, dancing along with the beeping sound and the sound of someone beeping their car horn. That made me laugh so much.

    Or the Murder She Wrote bit. Or on the first episode where it pans out of a shot of Tim and Daisy being Shaggy and Velma.

    Season 1 Episode 6 Mike's Lament scene... so classic...

    "The fiberglass on the outer casing was severly damaged in the incident...

    ...15 rocks in my rock sack, Tim... instead of the regulation 5...

    I knew something was wrong when I got her in the water, she was sitting so low... so low...

    I didn't stop Tim! 15 rocks in my rock sack and everyone knew it...

    I lost control of the vessel 2 feet from the shore... I struggled to right her and abandonded at the jetty damaging the canoe's carcass...

    The ramble leader had to dive in and rescue me from beneath the canoe!"


    This show is hilarious, I've been making all my friends watch it and I think it was one of the best shows put out in the last decade...

    I also love the scene near the beginning of season 1 episode 4...

    when Tim dives out the window

    "and I'd do it again I tell you! I'd do it in an instant! Ahh ha-ha-ha!! Ahhh ha ha ha!!!" *smash*

    lmfao

    (Tim is playing Resident Evil)

    Brian: 'So what is this then?'

    Tim: 'Oh this? This is Resident Evil. It's a subtle blend of lateral thinking and extreme violence'

    Brian: 'So, like It's a Knockout?'

    Tim: '...erm...Yeah!'

    I could try my whole life and not come up with a better description of something

    My fav moment (well one of there are so many!) I the food fight near the end of season 2. They are throwing cake at each other and the guy at the piano plays the Bugsy Malone music and they all stop. Fantastic

    Mike dancing at the end of Epiphanies...well really the entire club sequence.

    Brian: "Trying to avoid...clichés...by not actually placing my brush on the canvas. I'm using my penis.
    Tim: "Finally."

    The entire One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest parody in Mettle

    The obscure Taxi Driver reference in Help

    Tim, Mike, and Brian's gunless gunfight in Gone

    Paintballing sequence in Battles, particularly Mike's sacrifice.

    I found the fake fight during that episode when Tim is playing resident evil 3..

    and they start out tht fake fight with the gun sound effects and all.. I thought that was amazing as that video game is amazing, just hearing it.. and then them with the actions and sound effects was hilarious (what episode was that anyone?)

    also, very short moment, but when the Irish guy with bleached blond hair is in the club.. and walks away slowly into the smoke, then runs back out coughing, lmao. (episode?)

    sorry, just watching it for the first time on channel 4 just now, oh man, wish I seen this a long time ago, it looks great... is it on DVD and that?

    Definitely when Mike got shot by the paint ball and spits up yellow blood or green blood.

    I love that scene - especially Twist's "I'm allergic to wheat".

    One of my favourite jokes is a geeky one, because if I remember rightly it's not in an episode, it's on the DVD deleted scenes. It's the one where Brian comes in and asks Daisy what she's doing, and she says she's writing a letter. To which Brian responds "Oh", and we cut to the typewriter to see she's written an 'O'. I'm not trying to be a smartarse, I genuinely think that's one of the best jokes they've had.

    Yes yes yes! So glad someone else found that as funny as I did.

    My other personal favorites:

    The way Nick says "Timmy, fetch me my tools!" and "Bye Twist" (to the painting, in 2.5)

    The way Brian's mail is always opened by someone else

    Bilbo producing a mysteriously-powered answering machine out of nowhere -- and his stock room being bigger than the shop (note the 'police call box' sign above the door)

    Marcia's innuendoes to Brian when he comes up to get his paint roller back

    Too many more to list.. I could go on all day.

    I will be forever be in love with the fake gun fight that everyone jumps into. Nick Frost's granade throw is priceless.

    Season 1 ep. 3 the part when Tim punches Vulva out, I laughed so hard.

    Tim: So what happened last night then?

    Daisy: Well we went to see an interesting piece of contempory theatre, drank an enormous amount of free wine, ate our body-weight in Twiglets and you punched an artist in the face.

    Tim: S*** I'm not supposed to eat Twiglets

    Daisy: Why not?

    Tim: They make me violent
