(1/7  Radio Goodies)



19* Graeme: "This is my latest and most ambitious plan so far, the most daring stroke in the history of human endeavour.  (points to diagram)  These are giant hydraulic jacks spanning the channel, this is the navy and the QEII.  Teams of miners will tunnel underground from east to west, and then … then comes the big push!"

(5/1  The Movies)



22* Roman Emperor:  "Why didn't you book the Christians?  It's a good family show!"

(5/9  Rome Antics)



23* Tim: "Perhaps we could frighten them by broadcasting messages to them in their own language. If only we had an Eskimo phrase book ... ah, here's one!"

(6/1  Lips, or Almighty Cod)



24* Graeme (about his building plans): "That's the whole point, you fool.  Look, do you realise that the rent on that place is going to be 4000 pounds per square foot.  And that's per minute!"

Bill: "Nobody can afford that, can they!"

Graeme: "Well of course they can't, so there's no point wasting money putting doors and windows in, is there!?  Goodness me!  As a matter of fact, there's no rooms in there either and that's so the squatters can't move in ... I've thought of everything!"

(5/13  The End)

85* Graeme (putting a dog into the breeding basket, which contains an elephant): "Here you are darling, in you go.  Close your eyes and think of Crufts!"

(5/5  Frankenfido)



86* Bill (laughs): "God blimey, how about Stonehenge?!  What a waste of money that was.  Two thousand years it's stood there ... still doesn't fly!"

(5/9  Rome Antics)



87* The kinky Roman Emperor (after one of his countrymen has thrown a carrot at him): "Who threw that?!  Was that you?  Cheeky!" (… and later after catching a zucchini) "Was that you again?  Was it?!  (chuckles)  Like it!"

(5/9  Rome Antics)



88* Bill (enthusiastically): "I'm gonna write music ... music from my heart, music that's in my blood, gut music, music you can feel in your intestines, sounds that grab your giblets, rhythm that sends you tapping your bowels, swinging your pancreas, bursting your bladder!!"

Graeme (revolted): "I'm gonna be sick!"

Bill: "Just wait 'til you hear the music!"

(6/2  Hype Pressure)



89* Tim (on the fate of Graeme in the year 2001 and a bit): "I'm afraid he went a couple of years later.  He was put away for having an unnatural relationship with his computer!"

(6/6  2001 And A Bit)



90* Tim (reading out the revised scouting badges): "Or you can go for your Wig Spotters badge ...(incredulously)  WIG SPOTTERS?!"

(and a little later …)

Bill (enthusiastically): "I'm going for my Cheering Up Lonely Young Housewives Whose Husbands Are Away At Work badge!"

(7/3  Scoutrageous)



91* Park Warden (announcing into megaphone): "All right, you druids.  Time's up.  Druids off.  Have you druids got no homes to go to?!  It's flasher's hour as from now, 9 o'clock.  Come on you flashers, let's have you!"

(8/2  U-Friend Or UFO)



92* Graeme: "Ah, but have you got any real proof (of Arthur C.Clarke's existence) - footprints, close encounters, droppings?!"

Tim (frustrated): "Typical scientific narrow mindedness.  Just because I can't produce a little heap of 'naughty Arthur' on a shovel!"

(9/3  Bigfoot)





93* Tim (telling Bill not to rescue Graeme - to sad violin music): "No Bill, the friend we once knew is gone.  That ... creature out there sinking in the ocean is something else.  The hapless victim of his own terrible thirst for power.  Let him go.  He ... would have wanted it ... this way."  (respectful pause)

Bill (scornfully): "No he bloody wouldn't!!"

(1/7  Radio Goodies)



94* Tim (trying to find out who the Music Master really is): "I have a little trick up my sleeve that sometimes works"  (turns to Music Master)  "Who are you ?!"

Music Master: "M.J.Congleton.  17 Acacia Ville ... heh heh heh, oh no!  You can't trick me as easily as that!"

(2/5  The Music Lovers)



95* Bill (to an outraged Mrs Carthorse): "Shoosh, shoosh, come here, c'mon, come a bit closer, c'mon ... Knickers!"

Mrs Carthorse: "Oooooh!" (collapses in shock)

Tim (shocked): "You've killed her!"

Bill (dismissively): "Yes, good!!"

(2/11  Gender Education)



96* (Tim and Bill are chanting "What a load of rubbish!" after watching Ken Russell's film)

Graeme (pretentiously):  "No, no, no.  Didn't you feel that it had a certain surreal symbolistic quality, just captivating the very futility of life, death, indeed the very existence of God himself, indeed reflected in the microcosm, didn't you feel?"

Bill (slightly taken aback): "Load of old cobblers!"

Graeme (fiendishly): "Certainly!"

(5/1  The Movies)



97* Bill (disgusted at the thought of going to Australia in search of Rolf Harris):

"Nah, not Australia.  I mean, that's full of abos and dingoes and upside-down jokes."

Tim: "Shhh Bill, we must prepare for the trip.  Look out half a dozen jumbucks, pack two, no three coolibahs in the tuckerbag.  Graeme you'd better go and whack the diddle-o while I ... press a clean pair of billabongs.  Now ... Awstrailya ... heeere we come!"

(followed by Bill almost cracking up with laughter!)

(5/6  Scatty Safari)



98* Graeme: "And I shan't even allude..."

Tim: "Allude not!"

Graeme: " To my wee cousin Hamish who has a black sporran in the Scottish martial art of Hoots Toots Och Aye The Noo!"

(5/7  Kung Fu Kapers)


99* Grand Master of Ecky Thump's wise saying: "There's nowt wrong wi' owt what mitherin' clutterbucks don't barley grummit!"

(5/7  Kung Fu Kapers)



100* Bill (drunkenly trying to burp): "Won't come!"

Tim: (full as a boot too): "Have another swig of this.  That'll bring it up."

Bill (takes a swig): "Oooh that's horrible!  What is it?"

Tim: "Turps!  Turps for burps!"  (sings with Bill)  "Please release me, let me go!"

(monster burp from Bill)

Tim (delighted): "Thar she blows!  That's my boy!  Nobody light a match!"

(5/13  The End)



101* Graeme (to Tim on phone): "G'day sport, what can I do ya for?! ... This is not a funny voice, I'm talkin' Australian.  That's right, you are speaking to Kerry Thwacker. ... Yes, Kerry Thwacker, sports-mad international.  No, no, Mr Garden would do a much sillier voice than this!"  (demonstrates)  "Whack the diddle-o blue!  Pull up a jumbuck and take the weight off ya billabongs!"

(8/3  A Kick In The Arts)

I think that #8 is wrong.  Wasn't that Hospital for Hire, and not Invasion of the Moon Creatures?

Yes, that's correct.  A Wig Spotters badge for you and a sip of the magic elixir for me!  I'll fix it up right away.

In #71, I was under the impression that Graeme says "padgy-jim jams" not "piggy-jim-jams"  at least that's the way my entire fabric of existence has been constructed upon.

It's been a few months since I've opened up this file to check the comments, so sorry about the late reply Aefgoth and Flippa.  I've just had a very close listen to the episode sound track (with my ear glued to the TV speaker!) and "piggy" it is, I'm afraid.  Sorry to deconstruct your entire fabric of existence!
