Funny / Ashes to Ashes (2008)

Go To

  • The "Jackanory" scene from the second season finale.
  • "I promise not to twang his red braces... more than once."
  • Alex dirty dancing with Ray.
  • "It's not like I've SHAGGED AN ENTIRE RUGBY TEAM!"
    • "I bet she has."
  • Chris's reaction to the butt plug:
    Chris: Must have bloody big ears.
    Alex: Wrong orifice, Chris.
    Chris: ... what?
    Gene: It goes up your arse!
  • "They have sex, Gene. Sweaty, muscular, male sex. Get used to it."
  • In 1.07: While speculating on the perpetrators of an armed robbery Gene refers to the idea of a previously unknown gang as the New Kids On The Block, in 1981. Alex gives this a quick lampshade, drops it due to other stress, and is blindsided by Chris calling them the Back Street Boys from East 17 and Ray wants to get them Busted. Bonus points for Chris still somewhat being New Meat.

  • In 1.08: Alex, meet Pink Tank. Pink Tank, meet Unfortunate blue Ford Escort. Glorious.
  • "I'm imagining you imagining paying for sex with me in my imaginary role as an imaginary street whore."
  • Ray going undercover in the gay bar. (A bit Hilarious in Hindsight, too...)
    Alex: It's a great opportunity.
    Ray: Who bloody FOR?
  • Chris's striptease apology to Shaz from 2.01. Complete with Hot Chocolate's "You Sexy Thing" and dialogue. And his tripping on his undies while trying to kiss Shaz crowns it all.
  • The scene in the chip shop where Ray...um. here.
    Ray: [picking up the fried item] Oh you beauty...
  • The cast singing "Uptown Girl" in 3x02.
  • Gene's freakout over the Dutch gangsters destroying the Quattro in the finale:
    Gene: OI! I'M ARRESTING YOU FOR MURDERING MY CAR, YOU DIKE-DIGGING TOSSPOT!

"You have the right to remain silent. Anything you do say will be taken down, ripped up and shoved down your scrawny little throat."
