Quotes

Stephen: I think it was Donald Mainstock, the great amateur squash player, who pointed out how lovely I was. Until that time, I think it was safe to say that I had never really been aware of my own timeless brand of loveliness. But his words smote me because, of course you see, I am lovely in a fluffy moist kind of a way and who would have it otherwise?

The start of something lovely!

"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.

This episode's sketches are: Cold Open (Tango 1 and Tango 2); Vacation Pictures; Stephen & Hugh Address the Audience (Eye Problems); Privatized Police Force; Argue the Toss/Up the 'Arts'; Deodorant Commercial by William Wegman; Monologue: Stephen's Loveliness; There's Something Wrong with My Suit; Hugh Sings "Mystery"; Executive Breakfast Lounge; Toy Car Salesman; Australian Soap Opera.
