I didn't like the Phantom Raspberry Blower, but I loved the sketches at the end of the programmes when they were members of an orchestra or Hawaiian dancers - or the Tea ladies.


I also think Ronnie Barker wrote the Breakfast Routine that Morecombe and Wise did to the Can-can

I hadn't heard the news :(:( , (at work, snatching a quick forum catch-up whilst I'm supposed to be having lunch).

I agree Porridge is a classic, and also Open all Hours, I love them both, and I loved the comedy genius of the man, his timing was impeccable, and the dry way he delivered his lines. The partnerships with Beckinsale (oops, forgot his name :oops: ) and David Jason were just brilliant.

And of course, you just can't forget the Two Ronnies

.... it's goodnight from him, and goodnight from me. Fantastic :P

What a sad loss

MO: Suffer from any illness?

Fletch: Bad feet!

MO: Paid a recent visit to a doctor or hospital?

Fletch: Only with my bad feet! ...

MO: Are you now or have you at any time been a practicing homosexual.

Fletch: What, with these feet? Who'd have me?



[the MO has finished Fletch's medical, and points to some specimen containers over on a table]

MO: Now I want you to fill one of those containers for me.

Fletch: What, from 'ere?
