ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS EVER MADE.
(I have to go to bed now but I needed to get that out there)
"No bloody mini bar!"
I fucking adore Ab Fab! I think Panic Room in series five is my favourite episode. I really thought it had found its feet again for that series after being quite shit in series four.
One of my all time fave shows with 'Poor' being my favourite episode of any television show ever. Fact!
GO FOR IT EDDY!
"Is he from Gabon?"
"But why? Why did you burn all my books?!"
"WE WERE COLD!"
"Is It a bee?"
Saffy actress: "This is the story of a self raising flower"
Patsy: PISS OFF!
"How do I look?"
"Like a zeppelin in a condom."
"Where are the photos? Where are any photos of me?"
"WELL WE DIDN'T HAVE CAMERAS IN THOSE DAYS!"
I love this show.
I LOVE AbFab!!!!!!
There's not a single episode I don't know the whole script of....
"All dull as dishwater daughter-induced stress, alright?"
Saffie: "What do you want, a big, fat, ugly, armless statue????"
Eddy: "I've got arms"
This is the funniest quote from the whole series.
Also: "YOU LITTLE PIECE OF DRIBBLE PISS"
And the scene where Saffy's friend is asking her about her teacher-crush:
"Do you want to kiss him? DO YOU WANT TO SEX HIM?!?"
*Saffy slaps friend over the face, causing friend's glasses to go flying*
Yes! I like that they made both Saffy and Sarah/Titikaka damaged in their own ways in the later series - because really, growing up among all that who wouldn't be? Saffy being a cow to the actors in her play (especially the poor girl playing her) was particularly good.
'Abort abort abort I said! Chuck it down the pan and bring me....'
'...A knitting needle?'
'A knitting needle!'
I love her face when she slaps her after saying that!
Bubble is the best!
"'Oover Vacoom's broke, fell out t'window when I was doin' sills!"
"Nicole is weeping with regret!"
Oh I love Bubbleisms. I always use "I shall make a note of it in my pad"
"It's not just for life, it's for Christmas"
Also love when Edina refers to Saffys dad saying "God, I hope you're not inviting that bloody, bollocky, selfish, two-faced, chicken, bastard, pig-dog man are you?"
I've yet to meet someone who doesn't like 'Ab Fab.' I turned a few friends on to it, and they love it. It's so damn quotable!
I loved every time Edina, clearly drunk out of her mind, would protest "I've had one drink!" usually before slamming an empty bottle of alcohol on the nearest available surface.
Or from the 'France' episode: Patsy - "The last mosquito that bit me had to book into the Betty Ford clinic."
And I can honestly say that I almost died from lack of oxygen watching this show, from laughing so much. I only recently saw 'The Last Shout' for the first time and Patsy and Eddie's fight in part 1 nearly finished me off.
The recurring gags are what made the show, I think. Like trying to get out of a car and all of the staircase gags.
One of the funniest moments for me is after the kitchen burns down and Edina is told it could have been caused from a cigarette. "PATSY". The image of Patsy lifting her head up will stay with me forever!
I love when Eddie and Pasty go rug shopping and Patsy gets stuck in the rug-display thing and comes out with a bent cigarette.
And the airport luggage conveyor belt! One of the funniest moments in the history of television.
