Quotes

Eddie: [to Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton] Well, see, the trouble with you is you're not giving me anything. You know, if you want something from the tabs, you gotta give 'em something back. You're just kinda flatlining nice and sweet, are you? And they want a little bit of a heartbeat. They don't wanna know your mum's your best friend, do they? They want it to be some one-armed, lesbian assailant seeker! They want the full cellulite shots! They want a forty-in-the-bed party with your Spice mates! They want ...

The fifth series is off to a good start!
11 April 2007 | by (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

"Cleanin'" is a good start for the fifth series. Edina awakens to hear a radio personality (voice of Jane Horrocks) talking about vomit on her shoe. Patsy joins Edina in the remodeled bathroom, and Edina explains a few of the new features. The bathroom now has a swimming pool, a seeing-eye toilet, and a shower that includes a sound system and wax cycle! They also discuss how things have been since Saffy's been away on a trip. Llewella Gideon ("Hospital" and "Death") returns to the show as a tanning beautician, and she uses an extra large nozzle to give Edina an all-over, spray-on tan. Edina and Patsy find some time to watch morning television after Edina's tanning session. They tune in to watch Fern Britton hosting Katy Grin. Katy is promoting her new book, "My Iraq," and Fern happens to have a clip of a mishap in which Katy was pulled under a passing American tank. Patsy persuades Edina to indulge and live it up while Saffy's still away, and they hop into a chauffeured Hummer for some breakfast and shopping. Their morning out is short-lived when Edina gets called into the office, which is now in her sitting room at home. Edina gets "briefed" by Bubble, and then meets with client Emma Bunton (former Baby Spice of The Spice Girls.) Bubble informs Patsy that Catriona and Fleur are waiting to see her in Edina's kitchen. Emma came to inquire about new projects, but the ideas of pressing the Lotto button, "Celebrity Millionaire," and "Celebrity Weakest Link" don't interest her. Meanwhile in the downstairs kitchen, Patsy finds out that Fleur was going to complain that Patsy doesn't work as hard as she and Catriona do. Patsy soon puts Fleur in her place, and grumbles a threat. Emma mentions she used to go to school with Saffy, and she asks when Saffy will be returning from her trip. They consult Bubble's calendar, and learn Saffy will be coming home that very day. Edina gasps with joy over learning this, but Patsy belts out a howl of disgust. They all decide to clean up the house for Saffy's return. Mrs. M. arrives to help with the cleaning. Eventually Eddy, Patsy, Bubble, and Mrs. M. lose focus on the task at hand, and Emma attempts to get them back on track. Saffy returns from abroad to greetings from her friends and family, but Patsy is sour and leaves quickly! The rest of the group follow, and Edina then has some time alone with her daughter. Edina seems defensive; almost like she's trying to provoke a confrontation with her daughter. She notices Saffy has put on a bit of weight, and during her outburst she learns Saffy is pregnant.
