Quotes

#Quote
1I am not, I repeat, NOT a lesbian - even though I'd like to be one when I grow up.
2Fawlty Towers was an enormous favorite. I once laughed so hard with my dad at this series that I actually wet my pants and then my dad wet his. We were in genuine physical pain with laughing. Lovely
3Brit sitcom is usually good character observation and less gags. The Americans love the comedy to be high gag quota and slick.
