Storyline

Highlights include a puppy who has had a hard life: the conversational pull of the Book of Genesis versus that of girlfriends' breasts; and a retirement home resident who, at 94, decides he wants to suck the marrow (or more specifically, the oral sex) out of life. The pleasant boys from M.I.5 are back to treat each other with love, and the taxation minister is heckled by no other than Tony of Plymouth, avenger of the poor. Written by Anonymous

"A Bit of Fry and Laurie" sets the gold standard for comedy sketch shows. Stephen and Hugh are best friends who have appeared together in many productions. They write and act all the sketches. In the first two seasons, they are occasionally aided by one or two other actors. Sometimes, one of them cross-dresses to create new characters. However, the vast majority of sketches consist simply of two Englishmen experimenting with different ideas. But Stephen & Hugh are so ingenious and work so well together that each sketch feels fresh and exciting.

The sketches are: Margery's Had a Fall; Snipper; Oh, Leave it Out!; Who Told You That You Were Naked?; Control & Tony; Responsibility Television; Irish Joke; Cocoa; Tony of Plymouth.

This episode has a lot of great moments - the way Stephen's character lilts the word "God," the adorable puppy Snipper, Fry and Laurie's attempts to brainwash their viewers, Hugh as a cranky old man/Stephen as a nurse, and the hilarious duel at the end. An excellent conclusion to the first season!
