"Spaced: Leaves (#2.7)" (2001)
Tim: Okay listen. When we get there let me do the talking. I *am* the only one here who's capable of serious communication, so - Sorry, sorry. That sounded bad. I didn't mean to suggest that you aren't good communicators. Alright, Mike?
Mike: [grunting] Yes.
Tim: Brian?
Brian Topp: [Brian makes an unintelligible noise.]

Brian Topp: What are you going to say to her?
Tim: Well -
[dream sequence begins]
Tim: Marsha, they say that the family of the twenty-first century is made up of friends, and not relatives, and if that's true, then you're the best aunty I've ever had!
Marsha Klein: Aw.
[Marsha hugs him and gives him a quick peck; they pause, look at each other, and begin kissing deeply]
Brian Topp: Tim?
Tim: [returning from the daydream] Aaaaaaahhh!
Brian Topp: You alright?
Tim: Yeah, I'm fine. Why wouldn't I be fine? Light's green.

[Brian squeaks]


"Spaced: Chaos (#1.5)" (1999)
Brian: Chaos Theory!
Tim: Eh?
Brian: The predictability of random events. The notion that reality as we know it, past, present and future is actually a mathematically predictable preordained system.
Daisy: So somewhere out their in the vastness of the unknown is an equation... for predicting the future!
Brian: An equation so complex as to utterly defy any possibility of comprehension by even the most brilliant human mind, but an equation nonetheless.
Tim: Oh my God!
Brian: What?
Tim: I've got some fucking Jaffa Cakes in my coat pocket!

[Tim, Daisy and Brian have all just watched the original Star Wars trilogy]
Tim: Brian, did you notice that everything that transpired in those three films - and I *mean* everything - can be attributed to the actions of one very *minor* character?
Brian: Who?
Tim: The gunner on the Star Destroyer at the beginning of the first film.
Brian: How come?
Tim: [know-it-all] Well. Hmmhmmhmm. Because, if the gunner *had* shot the pod that C-3P0 and R2 were in, they wouldn't have got to Tatooine, they wouldn't have met Luke, Luke wouldn't have met Ben, they wouldn't have met Han and Chewie, they wouldn't have rescued Princess Leia. *None* of it would have happened.

Brian: Excuse me.
Mike: Let's play!


"Spaced: Epiphanies (#1.6)" (1999)
Brian: Let's weave!

Brian: Can I borrow your video recorder?
Daisy Steiner: What you going to do? Stick it to a canvas as a piece depicting a nation of cathode junkies, selling their imaginations for quick-fix media hits from the Blockbuster syringe?
Brian: No, I want to record "Ready Steady Cook."

Brian: I'm working Tim, working. Do you understand?
Tim: No, sorry. Got me there.
Brian: Trying... to...avoid...clichés by not actually placing my brush on the canvas.
Tim: Wow. Right.
Brian: I'm using my penis.
Tim: Finally.


"Spaced: Battles (#1.4)" (1999)
[Brian is literally wearing a painting]
Tim Bisley: You've got some paint on you.
Brian Topp: It's a literal tribute to the self-reflexivity of Rembrandt.
Tim Bisley: Did he like it?
Brian Topp: He's dead.
Tim Bisley: Bloody hell, that really backfired.

Brian: [enters, wearing a painting] Can I borrow a teabag?
Tim Bisley: [not looking at Brian] Only if you bring it back.
[sighs]
Tim Bisley: You can have a teabag, Brian, you can't borrow one.
[turns to look at him - pauses]
Tim Bisley: You've got some paint on you.

Brian Topp: What are you playing?
Tim: Tomb Raider 3.
Brian Topp: She's drowning.
Tim: Yeah.
Brian Topp: Is that the point of the game?
Tim: It depends what mood you're in really.
Brian Topp: What sort of mood are you in then?
Tim: Well, I got a letter from my girlfriend this morning three months too late explaining why she dumped me. It was full of you'll always be special and I'll always love you platitudes designed to make me feel better while simultaneously appeasing her deep seeded sense of guilt for running off with a slimy little city boy named Duane and destroying my faith in everything in the world that is good and pure.
Brian Topp: So it didn't really work then.
Tim: No, it made me want to drown things!


"Spaced: Change (#2.2)" (2001)
[Brian is in his room, getting very into his painting, breathing heavily. The phone rings, he answers it]
Brian: Hello?

Twist Morgan: How are you?
Brian: Very well, thank you.
Twist Morgan: I miss you.
Brian: Miss me too.

Twist Morgan: [Giggles] So don't forget to wash your sheets.
Brian: Right.
Twist Morgan: And your penis.

Brian Topp: They, er, arrived just before you did.
Tim: You Lando!


"Spaced: Dissolution (#2.6)" (2001)
[on Twist]
Tim: She's shallow, Brian. She's like Cordelia out of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," and latterly "Angel," the spin off series which is set in LA.
Brian: Don't know what you're talking about.
Tim: Brian, you're such a square!

Brian: I'm not an accessory, Twist. You can't just pick me up when you need me.

Brian: It's a bit more complex than that.
Daisy: Tim does cartoons.
Tim: It's a bit more complex than that.

Daisy Steiner: Do you rent downstairs?
Brian: You mean am I gay?
Daisy Steiner: WHAT?
Brian: You mean am I gay?
Daisy Steiner: No, I meant "Do you rent the downstairs flat?"
Brian: Oh. Yep, sort of.
Tim: Are you gay?
Brian: Hmm?
Tim: Are you gay?
Brian: [in deep contemplation] No...

Brian: I do.
Twist: A whole Brian, with a 'w'!
Brian: Oh.
