    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Jon: (F&TS, Carry On film) I understand you are selling this property. Has it got a big behind?

      • Jon: (in Film Dub, after one of the tin men gets the door shut on him) Well, bang go my chances of scoring tonight!

      • (before Authors)
        Josie: I'm going to go for Jackie Collins.
        Jimmy: Somebody should! With a pick-axe.

      • Clive: Most of the elements present in the final show are present in this experimental version; though you will notice, I hope, that I'm not introducing it at all; it's introduced by my identical twin brother who's looking very, very, uncomfortable.

      • (F&TS, Disney)
        Josie: Why don't we sing our favourite song?
        Jimmy: Okay.
        Josie: You start.

    • NOTES (5)

      • Differences in the pilot and the rest of the series:

        F&TS was called Genre Option by Clive.

        In Film Dub, there was no scene set by Clive, instead, John and Jimmy just made up one based on the film they saw.

        In Song Styles, Josie held a microphone while John just sang into his lapel mic like in the rest of the series.

      • Jon Glover and John Sessions appeared on episode six of the Whose Line radio show.

      • The set was blue in the pilot and the buzzer sounded different. If you want to know what it sounded like, think of it this way: be VERY, VERY glad that it was changed.

      • This was the only time in the UK series, besides compilations, that the credits were not read. It was a little odd too, as Jon Glover was declared the winner, yet still didn't read the credits.

      • This was the pilot episode, but it was shown at the end of the first series. On the DVD release, it is the first episode listed.
