      • Hugh: (On Germany) At this point we should point out that we wouldn't wish to associated with the views of Nicholas Ridley.
        David: No, because Nicholas Ridley is so patently an arsehole. The sort of man who, when you see him like in a hardhat on a building site, you think "Oh, he looks a bit of an arsehole in that hat." And then you realise; it's not the hat.

      • Rob: I'd like now to do a reading from Heathcote Williams' classic conservation poem "Whale Nation." Now, those of you who are already familiar with this poem may perhaps notice that I've taken the liberty of adding one or two of my own lines here or there, but I trust you agree with me that this doesn't interfere with the poem's original meaning in any way. "Whale Nation":

        Out of the body of one whale is made oil, jewellery, clothes, medicine, soap, furniture, cosmetics and ornaments. (pause)
        What a bargain! Try getting all that lot out of a panda.

      • Top Cat: In the "Sex Talk" segment, when Steve is talking about bestiality, he goes over to a large dustbin and Rob pops up and does an impersonation of two of the characters from the popular cartoon series "Top Cat."
