TV meme, day 24


Day 24 - Best quote

My love for language-based comedy means I have many, many favourite quotes, but most of them aren't as funny when read out of context or if the characters are unfamiliar. Therefore I'm picking only one today, Basil talking to himself in the Fawlty Towers episode "Communication Problems" (1979).

Several variations can be found online, but Belgian TV conveniently repeated the episode last Monday, so I sat poised, pen in hand, to check whether I had the quote word-perfect. I hadn't, but I do now.

"ZOOM!"
"What was that?"
"That was your life, mate."
"Oh, that was quick. Do I get another?"
"Sorry mate, that's your lot!"
