Series 2


Episode 1 [2.1]

[Guy has brought a kitten in Mac’s room. He then takes out a gun and points it at the kitten.]
Guy: Wake up, or the kitty gets it. [Pause, followed by the kitten meowing quietly, then he talks to the kitten.] You said it would work.

Caroline: Guy, did you take a cat and a gun into Mac’s ward?
Guy: It was a replica.
Caroline: [Gasps] You brought in a replica cat?
Guy: [slowly] A replica gun.
Caroline: You're trying to get fully reinstated, how stupid can you be?
Guy: Not stupid enough to ask whether or not someone has brought in a replica cat.

Martin is puzzled about Guy's choice of lunch
Martin: You don't like curry.
Guy: No. Ah, not usually, no. But it's Ramadan! [waves the curry under the noses of two nurses] A time for fasting. Yum yum yum! Smells so good!
Nurse: We're Hindu, you nipple!

Episode 2 [2.2]

Angela: Just tell him what happened.
Caroline: He might not believe me. I’ve got no witnesses.
Angela: Well, if he knows his minds gone a bit…blurrg…so just tell him.
Caroline: Oh right. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Hi Mac, I’m er, I’m Caroline. You know, the one you found a bit irritating at first, but then er…well, the thing is you really, really liked me and now we’re kind of a couple. So, there you go, I’ve filled in all the gaps, let’s go to bed.
Angela: Well, maybe in not so many words.

[At an internal tribunal.]
Charles: Isn’t there something else you’d like to say?
Guy: Err…I don’t think so?
Sue: What’s the magic word?
Guy: Abracadabra?
Charles: How do you normally express your gratitude to somebody?
Guy: You want a tip? Is that ethical?

Caroline: Look, we’re all back!
Mac: Yeah, but I don’t really remember who you are?
Guy: Well, as long you remember in what order to put the organs back in in.
Mac: What an odd thing to say say. [Mac has a scalpel in his hand, and starts waving it around.] A one, a two, a one, two, three, four.
Caroline: Yeah, I’m actually a little bit worried now.
Mac: Wuss.
Guy: Oooh…no! Not like that! Don’t hold it like that. Oh my God, the man’s a butcher. Be careful with that bit, that’s the bit they need to…eat asparagus. They won’t be able to eat asparagus if you cut that bit out.

[Guy and Mac’s top five qualities in a woman, to Caroline.]
Guy: Five qualities, that’s easy. Number one, bendy.
Mac: Unpredictable.
Guy: Number two, shaved.
Mac: Must appreciate the genius of the Kinks.
Guy: Number three, slightly anorexic.
Mac: Thoughtful eyes.
Guy: Four, about sort of 5% lesbian.
Mac: Should be in touch with her masculine side.
Guy: And finally, mustn’t be too smelly in the cellar.
Mac: Compassionate.
Guy: [Disgusted] Ugh…So what you’ve come up with is an unpredictable, yet compassionate, slightly masculine, Kinks fan... with eyes?
Mac: I know. It’s an impossible dream.
Guy: [to Caroline as they leave] In the cellar. Down below...

Episode 3 [2.3]

[Harriet rushes into the office.]
Harriet: Oh, sorry I’m late. The kids.
Kim: Took forever to get ready?
Harriet: Yeah, and the traffic.
Rachel: Terrible?
Harriet: Wasn’t it. Then I had to stop off at… [She opens her bag, and a cat comes out of it.] Oh. Well who did I leave at the vets then?

Caroline: I’m just saying it’s a male dominated workplace.
Guy: Bollocks!
Caroline: I’ve got a few other points you can prove for me if you like.
Guy: It’s not male dominated, there are bloody women everywhere.
Mac: Hmm…crunching underfoot everywhere they walk.
Guy: Yeah. Have you ever paid for a woman to walk on you? I have. It’s pointless. Really hurts.
Caroline: Wow, it’s like working with Germaine Greer.

Joanna: Right, what have we got? Anything?
Kim: Oh wait, there’s a complaints file.
Joanna: I knew it! [They open the file. A pop-up paper set of flowers comes up from the file. Both scream at the sight.] Oh damn, she’s good.

Sue: Do I look like a mug? Have I got a handle? Am I made of china? Am I kept in a cupboard or on a small wooden tree? Would you like to put your lips on my rim? You may answer that question, the others were rhetorical.
Angela: This is the chance of a lifetime. If it doesn’t happen now, it may never happen!
Sue: Are we still on the rim thing?

[Mac enters the gents'.]
Martin: [O. O. V.] Hi Mac.
[Mac turns]
Mac: OK, that is the worst "going to the toilet" I’ve ever seen.
[The camera moves to show Martin stuck to the wall with parcel tape.]
Martin: Yeah, Guy said he’d be phoning the gays.
Mac: Which gays?
Martin: Well, all of them.
Mac: The thing you have to understand about the gays, is that they're probably more scared of you, than you are of them.

Episode 4 [2.4]

Guy: [To Caroline] You’ve got paperclips stuck to your hand.
Caroline: Have I? [Caroline lifts up her left hand. There are paperclips stuck to it.] Oh, must be a full moon; my hand goes magnetic.

Caroline: Swiss mouth, shut!

Caroline has reluctantly agreed to let Guy move into her spare room
Mac: A sabot, or sa-bot, was a kind of wooden clog worn by impoverished French workers, and as a protest against the Jacquard loom-- which they thought would take away their jobs-- they'd throw their sabots-- or wooden clogs-- into the delicate machinery to destroy its workings, from which we get the modern word sabotage.
Guy: Yeah, alright. Now you've harshed my buzz, have you got a point?
Mac: Well, if your plan to move in with Caroline is, in any way, an attempt to sabotage our relationship, I will hit you in the fucking face with a big wooden clog.

Episode 5 [2.5]

[Mac and Caroline are ready to kiss]
Guy: Can you get a verruca on your penis?
Caroline: I can’t, can you?
Mac: Never tried, pretty good at most parlour games though.
Guy: A friend of mine fell knob first into a foot bath at a swimming pool, he was wondering, that’s all. I’m not interrupting anything am I?
Mac: Just the evolution of mankind.

Episode 6 [2.6]

Murrat: You queen!
Karen: (embarrassed smile) No!
Murrat: Yes! (indicates her hair) Brian May! Queen!

Joanna: You’ve kept notes! Tell me you haven’t written down what you’ve did to my cousin?
Alan: Not really.
[Joanna takes Alan’s notebook and reads it herself.]
Joanna: “Damaged heron.” Somehow that’s worse.
Alan: Give it here.
Joanna: No, that’s going to the same place as my cousin.
Alan: Oh that’s terrific, where am I supposed to jot down my useful ideas?
Joanna: On your knob end? You wouldn’t need a huge amount of space will you? Oh here’s a useful idea for you, don’t kill dwarfs with herons.

Episode 7 [2.7]

[Sue is kissing the ventriloquist's dummy.]
Sue: Live, damn you, live!
Dummy: Fuck off! Save yourself for Dr. Macartney.
Sue: Yeah, I know you're right, you're right; but, Mac and Holly...what are we going to do?
Dummy: Destroy her!
Sue: Yes, good, how?
Dummy: Leave it to me.

Alan: Let’s have sex.
Joanna: We have to keep away from each other!
Alan: Let’s have sex separately.

Mac: I think my son's hair is dyed.
Martin: Oh, right. Well, have you checked to see whether his collar and cuffs match?
Mac: Martin, he's four years old.
Martin: Yeah, I know.
Mac: But if it is dyed, do you see what that means? Do you see what that implies?
Martin: Means he's probably quite vain about his appearance? Oh my God! He's gay!

Episode 8 [2.8]

Guy: [As Caroline takes a towel and wipes the mirror without reading the message.] No!
Caroline: What?
Guy: You spoilt it.
Caroline: [Brushing her teeth] Spoilt what?
Guy: The mirror, I'd written in it.
Caroline: Really.
Guy: Yes.
Caroline: Wrote what?
Guy: It doesn’t matter now, but if you must know it was, 'I love you.'
Caroline: You bloody narcissist!

Mac: All I’m saying is that you’ll never be a one-woman man.
Guy: That’s rubbish, I am.
Mac: Are you?
Guy: Yeah.
Mac: What about that new blonde girl in ENT, nice or what?
Guy: Not interested.
Mac: Not interested?
Guy: No. No, I’ve changed.
Mac: Oh great. What about Graham in dermatology
Guy: Changed as in, “I think I’m ready for commitment.”
Mac: Fantastic. I’ll sign your commitment papers for you today.

The Secret Policeman's Ball Sketch

Mac: You look a bit like a fairy.
Guy: [Points to Mac and Sue] Pot, kettle. Kettle, pot. That's the introductions out of the way.
Sue: Really? Who's this, then? [Get up off the gurney and talks to the patient] Oh, no, you don't, little lady. Uh-huh. Think we might've met before. Come on, up you pop. Off your trolley!
Guy: [Points to Sue and the patient] Pot, kettle. Kettle, pot.

Misc quotes

Joanna: “Criminals always get caught in the end, don’t you watch TV?”

Boyce: [To Martin, after he denies he offered a ride on his motorbike to a prostitute.] "Well, there was someone straddling you mate, maybe you should check your rear-view mirrors more."
