    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Before Couples, Clive introduced that they would be playing Different Games, in which different games would be played. Couples and Wrong Theme Tune were the games. When the episode aired on TV, World's Worst was put between them, but in the DVD release, World's Worst is in is proper place, before Props.

      • In Props, Stephen makes like a shot putter, but Clive says, "A very convincing javelin."

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Stephen: (in Rap)
        I sheep very hard, and then I sheep very hard again
        And I sheared a nice little wooly cardigan.

      • Clive: (after Wrong Theme Tune) Well, we'll just end there when we're in at least hailing distance of a taste barrier.

      • (in Couples)
        John: (as Alec Guiness) I wonder if any of the words on the blackboard of life can be said slower than the way I say them!
        Enn: (as Vincent Price) Beyond the stars and the universe shalt thou fly! Thou shalt fly to Obi Wan 'Ke-knob.'

        Enn: (as Sean Connery) Something else is coming through here...
        John: (as Dame Edna) You've got a very hairy bum, haven't you, Sean?

        John: (as Barney Rubble) Why when we bend over, don't you ever see our (blank) coming out from under those funny little things short things we wear?
        Enn: (as Fred Flintstone) Because we're not Sean Connery, that's why!

        Enn: (as Ronald Reagan) Well, you know, I can see a kind of, uh...
        John: (as Mikhail Gorbachev, singing) Eng-a-land swings like a pendulum do
        (joined by Enn) Bobbies on bicycles two by two...

      • (in World's Worst)
        John: Hello, you're still living in the 50's, how extraordinary. Cigarette?
        Enn: You look taller on Spitting Image.
        Stephen: It's a middle class German family, really.

      • Clive: John Sessions, who as far as this show is concerned is absolutely irreplaceable, and goodness knows, we've tried.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Several of the World's Worst bits were edited out on CC/HA!

      • Stephen Fry, John Sessions, and Enn Reitel also appear on the second episode of the Whose Line radio series. Another radio connection- Stephen Fry reuses 1001 Arabian Nights and the line "by many hands" (when Clive asks, "by...?") in Authors.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Frank Richards:
        Imitated by John in Authors, Frank Richards was the nom de plume of Charles Hamilton(among others), who wrote many short stories. The most famous of these is the Billy Bunter series, imitated by John in his turn.
