Gotta be Compo rolling down the hill in a tin bath for me
Fallen through the bar!
You were only supposed to blow the blahdy doors off!
OMG! You killed Kenny! You bastard(s)!
Comedy plotting (in it's purest form) and the choreography required to make it work at it's absolute pinnacle.
Where the guy goes "Fuckin' 'ell"! Thats great
Now it's David Mitchell with the flu pooing and Johnson coming in
is that... regular pooing, mark?
the moment Peep Show became Terry & June.
Just googled it and they look delightful
that child's body in a burnt-out car.
Louie and the doll
Louie and the bin men
Kramer doing the pinky toe on the bus incident
George doing the golf ball in the whale bit
Funkhouser telling Seinfeld the 'your cunt is in the sink' joke
Anything with Larry and Leon
The banana stand/crane game culmination in Arrested
i was literally crying with laughter throughout, wonderful stuff
Can't find any clip online any more. Shame.
Alan Partridge's conversation with a Currys worker: "You ought to have a basic grasp of Latin if you're working in Curry's"
Tucker walks into office. There's a box on the table.
It's a birthday cake with `HAPPY BIRTHDAY C*NT` written on it.
TUCKER: Well this could be from anybody.
^ One of the pinnacles of human achievement that.
(maybe not even best in that episode), but it did just get a proper out-loud chuckle from me as I remembered it.
I don't know what the name of the particular comic device is, but I get a particular lob-on for when something big happens and the character involved reacts unexpectedly (usually based on a small detail).
Best example I can think of it is in the Royal Tenenbaums when Owen Wilson rags that car down the road, smashes it into the house, careers through the window, destroys loads of stuff and then looks down and says `hey... where'd my shoe go?`. That.
'twas David Renwick
to be men, stop messing around, meet someone, settle down, start planning their lives ahead
then jerry breaks up with his next date because she eats her peas one at a time
it wasn't weird
look out for MN in the credits, and all shall be revealed
Or all of Chardee MacDennis.
"He bangs that really old chick and they play that song from the eighties, day bow bow"
but it's impossible to choose from numerous bits of Partridge/Thick of It.
Currently just laughing at the idea of Tucker saying 'fuck you, Andy Pandy, I *am* the loop' to Ollie. For some reason just him calling Ollie 'Andy Pandy' puts me in fits of giggles.
"What do you want, boy from the Secret Garden?"
make this absolutely clear - even if they DO say 'Jehovah'.
life of brian isn't allowed, everybody ruined it
There are loads more. I can't even deal with it.
How much fun can you have for a pound?
Also totally lost my shit when they brought shooting stars back and finished the episode with Jack Dee seeing how long he could keep a dead blue tit balanced on his head whilst 'feeling the full force of opera'
was when they put the lead singer of Let Loose in a massive dustbin and hit it with cricket bats.
Watching that at my desk was a bad idea...
at work to check if one of them is the sketch where Bob Mortimer talking to Matt Lucas and Matt Lucas keeps shaking his head about so all his skin wobbles. It's either genius or the height of stupidity but it gets me every time.
Any of the sketches where none of them can keep it together are gold!
but the Thick of It is quite good but absolutely no better.
or when Kramer does karate on Seinfeld
laughing out loud at friends
turn it some more!!!
it wont go!!!!
Anyone who claims to hate Friends is only lying to themselves. (The fact you all know all the lines pretty much proves this)
Certainly don't think it's anywhere near the pantheon of greats and couldn't really tell you why it was quite so successful though.
For lowest common denominator, please see aggressive_passive's witty and insightful posting in this thread...
I'd say it's more that it's way too mawkish and sentimental in an era where it seemed like that had very much had it's day.
Brooklyn Nine Nine

ROSCOE: Ah, Marlon! Stop broadening your mind by reading about Vikings on Encarta. I have a real-world phenomenon to show you
(MARLON smashes the Amiga with an axe, until all its components are at one once again with the dust and the air, as all things shall be when we are all long dead)
MARLON: I wish there was a simpler way to switch computers off
ROSCOE: There shan't be one in our life time, I shouldn't imagine.
MARLON: So what did you want to show me anyway.
ROSCOE: Here. It is a science phenomenon. Look a Cadbury's Spira is in mid-air. Do not you be too tempted, even by the fact that you can't get Spiras anymore because they discontinued them even though they are like one of the coolest designed chocolate bars there ever
MARLON: In my view, children born post-the date of discontinuation are missing out on an architectural landmark as well as a confectionarial one
ROSCOE: Alright settle down m8
MARLON: I WANNIT (leaps towards the levitating bar)
ROSCOE: No Roscoe you have to---
(MARLON falls through the bar)
ROSCOE: No Roscoe has falling through the bar into a parallel version of Earth! Who knows what is at the other end of that bar? A version of the Earth perhaps where its like normal Earth but everyone has an exploding arse? Or one where Hitler won the World Cup. But I must go through with him because I dont like the idea of paying both our shares oof the rent ESPECIALLY IN THE COLURENT CLIMET
(ROSCOE falls through the bar)
(TRIGGER looks around)
MARLON: Roscoe we are in a strange new Earth
ROSCOE: Yes it seems like the same as normal Earth but everything happens an hour later
MARLON: Now I have to wait ages for Pointless to come on
ROSCOE: Maybe Pointless is presented by a massive gopher in this parallel Earth
NAZI MAN: YOU VOT IST THE TIME
ROSCOE: Don't tell him it is quarter past nine
Brent's role play on the team building day surely.
Likewise Extras has justvtoo many good bits to choose from, notably catching darren and barry with the pen.
A-HA-AAAARRGH! What a year it’s been for Dante. Fires. Maybe you’re here tonight with a wife, or an old flame. But what is the burning issue? Hit your targets or you’ll be…fired. But today is also about FUN. HAVE YOU ALL GOT YOUR FUN PACKS?! I’ve got one here…I’ve dropped it…I’ve got a list…here. It should contain a torch, a Curly Wurly, a book of stamps, a free digital watch with denim strap, a vodka miniature, a BIC-style razor, and a copy of the Daily Express…OOOOH, IT’S A GOOD PAPER. Now first award tonight is for the best Christ…not Christ, er sorry…I keep saying Christ. Er I know some of you may be religious, and to those people I apolohoowergh…[hits the glitter explosion button]…Sorry I was supposed to hit that later…just wait for it to finish...A glittering year ahead. You might want to read your Daily Express. Don’t shine that torch in my face, mate. I’ve just lost a pint of blood. On, now. As we look back at a fantastic year for direct vent stoves I’m going to be sick again heurghwer…heurghwer...heurghwer…ohoooer…heurghwer…you know that feeling when there is nothing coming up?...heurghwer…heurghwer…ohoooer…heurghwer August bucked the trend for a downturn in fireplace sales…heurghwer…heurghwer…oh god… heurghwer…Ah, I sound like the devil. Foot’s come out my shoe. That’s not going back in, again. Do you want some more glitter? [another glitter explosion] Two grand that cost. I was going to give out some awards, but that’s not going to happen. I mean, look at me. Go and eat some coffee, drink it. It’s soup you can eat. Lots of liquid.
“Go to London! I guarantee you'll either be mugged or not appreciated. Catch the train to London, stopping at Rejection, Disappointment, Backstabbing Central and Shattered Dreams Parkway.”
but the scene in the lift when his wife has said she won't appear in his canal holiday promo....
Lynne: I could play your wife.
The little pissed off look he does when they get out the lift kills me every time.
Michael: Me, I'd, I-I-I'd have an, an Apache attack helicopter.
Alan: Oh, great.
Michael: Aye. I'd gan back to school. But first I'd take out the labs and then I'd type into the attack computer 'Mr Cragg, chemistry teacher'. Blow 'im to bits.
Alan: Yeah, I know the feeling.
Michael: And then I'd go looking for Tom Donaldson. I'd be hovering just down the road from his house, there. And he'd see us, but I'd duck down behind the trees, and he thinks he's safe, right? And he's just about to put the key in his front door, and I come up from behind the hedge, 'Hello, you bastard.' He panics, right? And he goes in the house, so I get the 30-millimetre canon and I take out the fish pond, coy carp in there couple of rounds each, right? And then I just tilt the helicopter over to one side and the machine-gun bullets is chewing up the drive, right? He comes out. 'Oh no! Not me Triumph Stag! I've just had it resprayed!' I cut it right in half, right? And then he goes, 'Ahhh!' He runs up on to the garage roof. I say, 'Right. This is for you, Tom.' He goes, 'No, no!' He's begging us, he's begging us man, 'No, please don't!' And then I fly off to Cornwall and I just smash in the sea in a big ball of flames.
Alan: Sleep well, Michael. Erm, who's Tom Donaldson?
Michael: Oh, he's just a mate.
