    How appropriate that this should appear here on Thursday. On all the other nights we’ll just have a big trough of baked beans and garnish it with a couple of dead dogs.

    This exactly why I could never get through more than the first episode of Fawlty Towers, because Basil is such a dick and it is inscrutiating to watch.

    Aw, you missed ending it with Basil thrashing the car with a branch!

    Don’t mention the war!

  5. Sybil: Perhaps it would be simplest to have [Manuel's rat] put to S-L-E-E-P

    Manuel: SPLEEP?!

    I think I could place just every single one of those Basil-isms. Perfect.

    “Cloth-eared bint” is one of my favorite phrases of all time.  I never knew what it meant until the Internet came along.  It sounds really bad, but it’s actually just a vaguely pejorative phrase meaning “inattentive girl.”  I suppose the male form would be “cloth-eared yob.”

    Never got to use either one of them in real life so far, but some day. . . .

     That’s right, just smiley faces here. No criticisms, please. What do you think this is, the internet?
