    • QUOTES (5)

      • Clive: (before Remote Control) Pornography? Um...yes, why not? Uh...well we'll discover why not in a moment.

      • (in World's Worst)
        Tony: Hello, Peter, I'm Tony. Does it matter that you were expecting a woman?
        John: Do you know the poetry of Rod McKuen? It goes...(Clive buzzes)
        Rory: I haven't thought of one, I just need the exercise.
        Jonathan: I just wanted to say that I did lots, but they were all edited out.
        Clive: Well, what a bizarre thing to say on a live program.

      • Rory: (during Remote Control) I got a message from my buttocks this morning!

      • Tony: (in Advertisement) Have you ever wanted to own something that was an extension of your penis?

    • NOTES (3)

      • When Clive mentions a loan shark in F&TS, Tony and Jonathan agree that Tony would be the loan shark and Jonathan says "You've got the tie for it."

      • Advertisement is not seen in the HA!/Comedy Central showings, otherwise the order is intact.

      • In the Remote Control game, Tony uses the penile euphemism 'veiny bang stick.' Back when Comedy Central was HA! and they were first airing the show, the line went unedited. In subsequent reruns a few months later, the entire line gets bleeped.
