Quotes

Various Characters: [Stephen Fry, as a woman being interviewed on the street] When the news of John Major's election came through, I was in the kitchen, glazing my buns and Michael, my husband, came through and we broke open a bottle of champagne and, uh, and tried to cut our throats with it.

"God Save the Quens!"
12 July 2011 | by intriguementSee all my reviews

After the weak first two episodes of season 4, "A Bit of Fry and Laurie" is never quite as hilarious as it was in previous seasons, but it is still fun. Stephen & Hugh spend a bit too much time introducing their guests and repeating old routines, but the sketches are plenty funny.

The sketches are: Cold Open: Oprah Winfrey; Intro: Be Comfortable; Guests: Stephen Moore & Phyllida Law; Racecar Driver; Councilman Kenneth Wade ("Family Values and Cleanse Living!"); Mark Bannister; Please Call for British Telecom; Mr. Burmy (so hilarious and cringe-inducing!); Cream Slice; Exterminators; Cocktail: Swinging Ballsack.
