Episode Summary

EDIT
The boys head to the west country for a bank holiday week-end in their home-made motor homes. This is bound to go well...

Thankfully, they've left building sports cars to the Germans, so Jeremy takes to the track in the new Audi R8 V10 Spyder and the Porsche 911 Turbo cabriolet. Andy Garcia is the very big Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.moreless

  • Clarkson owes me for a new set of lungs.

    10
    Okay, here we go. And we're off. Two coupés – Clarkson comparing the engine of one to the sound of Peter Mandelson being savaged by bears...no news worth mentioning...a motorhome challenge, and, OMG, what has Clarkson built? OMFG! That thing is so tall King Kong would wanna climb it! You could stand two horses, one on top of the other, on that! OMFG, he's driving it down the motorway! He doesn't even know how tall it is! The poor motorists! My lungs physically can't produce sound loud enough to express how hysterical Clarkson's motorhome is – I sound like a pack of howler monkeys in St Pauls. Even Hammond and May can't stop laughing. OMFG!...and, oh, it's Andy Garcia with a moustache promoting cleavage...and a pair of idiots, burning down Hammond's motorhome...and Clarkson's effort is over a cliff.



    Most of time the I try to be intelligent, and, yes, colourful, but also lovably neurotic and as sensitive and caring as fairy liquid. I only laugh at fart jokes if they were written by 5th Century BC Greek Historians. Clarkson, however, has just reduced me to a steaming puddle of foetid Neanderthal. My ego was wrecked more thoroughly than his motorhome. And I genuinely feel dirty at having laughed at that.moreless

    • This week's audience figures: 6.1 million, a share of 25.2%. The repeat on the following Wednesday was watched by 1.88 million people (8.5%).

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Jeremy Clarkson: Some say that he's spent all week daydreaming what Rubens Barrichello would look like in a ham slicer. And that he's terrified the BBC will reveal his salary because he's paid in strong pornography. All we know is he's called the Stig.

    • Jeremy Clarkson: After James had failed to wipe his bottom with any dignity, we decided to go to a nearby beauty spot.

    • Jeremy Clarkson: [talking about James riding a motorcycle]: I've seen faster moving icebergs than you. You got behind a bus going up to the A3 from here and he sat behind the bus the entire way.


      James May: That's because, Jeremy, the bus said 'Guildford' on the front and that's where I wanted to go.

    • Jeremy Clarkson: This is a million times better than the old 911 Turbo Cabriolet. Mind you, that isn't saying much because other things that are a million times nicer than the old car include tuberculosis and being on fire. Stuff like that.
