Season 1Edit

The Girlfriend [1.01]Edit

Colin: Everyone else can die, but you cannot - WHY?

Colin: She was so beautiful. She had eyes.........which was good, because the last girl I liked just had skin from the forehead down.

Colin: You stole my imaginary girlfriend!

One Simple Task [1.02]Edit

Frank: Come on, Col, you’re making a mountain out of a... very big hill.

[Frank has mistaken a movie for their life.]
Frank: I was sure that was you. [pause] Did we ever free a whale?

[The pair are going on holiday, and are packing, Colin produces an oar from the cupboard.]
Colin: Ba-da!!
Frank: Why are you taking an oar?
Colin: In case we hire a canoe.
Frank: Yeah, but the canoes come with oars.
Colin: I want to use my oar.
Frank: But why?
Colin: My great great great grandfather gave this to me. It's one of my most prized possessions.
Frank: Yeah?
Colin: Yeah, he gave it to me just a few years back.
Frank: But how could your great great great grandfather have given it to you? He must have died about a hundred years ago!
Colin: He just... ohh, sorry. He's not my grandfather's father's father's father, he's just my normal grandfather. But he's a really great, great, great grandfather. He's really great! I love him!

Colin: Remind the neighbours to feed the cat... yep.
Frank: Col, we haven’t got a cat.
Colin: But their cat’s looking really skinny.

Colin: Frank, what’s wrong?
Frank: [Lying to Col about why he’s upset.] Grandad’s dead.
Colin: [Sits down.] Frank, didn’t your grandad die five years ago?
[Frank nods, then looks confused.]
Colin: I think it’s time you got over it.
[Frank turns to look at Col.]
Colin: Remember? We were sitting at home, and you had to go down to the shops, and I got the phone call saying that he died, and when you got back from the shops I told... [realizes what he said] Ooooh. [cheerfully] Your grandad’s dead, Frank!

Colin: You’re so dumb, aren’t you? You’re such an idiot. You’re so stupendous!
Frank: Col, I don’t think you know what that word means.
Colin: I know exactly what it means. And you’re just jealous ‘cause you know I’m so much better. You know I’m superfluous!

Tonight You Die [1.03]Edit

Colin: You’ve been making an excuse everyday for the last fortnight.
Frank: I have not. That’s not true, it’s only been two weeks.

Video Store Guy: What about Silence of the Lambs?
Colin: Nah, I'm not really into nature films.

Frank: Excuse me, have you got that film? You know, that, um, that film with that guy. You know, that, um, that actor guy. You know, that actor who who’s in all those films. Have you got it? You know, you know the one I mean, oh what’s his name? Um, he’s been in heaps of films, you’d know him, you’d know him for sure. Um. You know, that... actor guy!
Colin: [Looking at a video] Oh, what about Herbie Goes Bananas? Like, who’s Herbie? Is he some, like, psychopath of something?
Frank: Oh, um, hey. Hey! Oh, uh, this’ll help. This’ll help. I just thought, he was in that other film. The one where he, um, where he plays a cop. You know! You know the film I mean, where that actor guy plays a cop.
Colin: [To the video shop guy.] Want me to put it back for you?
Video guy: No, it’s okay. I’ll do it. It’s my job.
Frank: Oh, and he was after that bad guy. You know! Ah, the... And he’s... the um... the actor guy! What is his name? See, the thing is... the thing is... the thing is, that when I say it, you’ll go ‘ah! Yes. Him. I love him. Adore him, the actor guy, yes. I just, mmm. Yes!’ But I can’t think of his... oh, it’s on the tip of my tongue! [Sticks his tongue out and looks at it.] You’d know it. See, the thing is... the thing is that you would know him, he’s got the hair, and the eyes, bit of a nose, and the mouth there, and he... it’s all held together with a... like a face!
Video guy: Shut up!

Colin: I’m warning you! I know jujitsu! And tae kwon do. And various other oriental... words.

Frank: Col. I love you, Col.
Colin: Frank. [pause] Love is a very strong word, for me. [He goes to leave, then stops.] Frank. I... tolerate you. [He goes to leave again, then turns around and they hug tightly.]

[Col and Frank are watching Mr Mannox being swarmed by wasps in his car. A person in a mask comes up and starts growling and jumping around them. He eventually stops and pulls off the mask.]
Video guy: Sorry, have I come at a bad time?
Frank & Colin: [They look at him, then each other, and then at Mr Mannox.] He loved that factory.
Colin: Didn’t he, Frank?
Frank: He certainly did, Greg. Greg? Greg, Greg, Gregory Peck! The actor guy! Gregory Peck! [He looks frantically between Col and the video shop guy, the solemnly back at Mr Mannox.]

The Wall [1.04]Edit

Frank: You know the strangest thing about Mr. Wilson? When he comes over he never says anything.
Colin: Yeah, that’s because he is a mute.
Frank: Oh right. [Pause.] What’s a mute?
Colin: He’s a mute - he can’t talk.
Frank: Ohh... No, I’m still not clear on this mute business.
Colin: For some reason he is unable to speak.
Frank: Ohhh... No, I still don’t get it.
Colin: He’s a mute! He’s dumb!
Frank: Yeah, well, I’m dumb too, but at least I’m polite enough to speak to people!

Star Quest [1.05]Edit

Colin: It's gonna be great in there tonight isn't it? With all those pop stars and dancers and actors.
Frank: I wonder if any of the great Hollywood actors'll be there Col, like Charlton Burton.
Colin: [pauses] There's no such person you idiot. It's either Charlton Heston or Richard Burton.
Frank: No, Charlton Burton. There's a Charlton Burton! He was in that film, that classic film, everybody loves it, 'The Long Long Eyebrow.' It's my favourite.

Frank: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will only cause permanent psychological damage!

Colin: I wanna be good out there, Frank! This is my big chance to make a mark in the world! I wanna be remembered. I...I wanna be famous. I wann be a historical figure like Alexander the Great or Scott of the Antarctic or Weird Al Yankovic, you know!
Frank: I didn't know anyone even lived in the Antartic.
Colin: [confused] What?
Frank: [recalling what Colin said] Scott. Scott of the Antartic.
Colin: He wasn't from the Antartic. He was English. He went there on an expedition. Look, we haven't got time to talk about that now.
Frank: Well, why do they call him 'Scott OF the Antarctic'? They should call him 'Scott Who Went TO the Antartic'. I mean, a friend of mine Russell went to Thailand once and I don’t call him 'Russell of Thailand'.
Colin: Can we just get on with rehearsal please?
Frank: And why'd he go there anyway?
Colin: He wanted to be the first man to reach the South Pole, but he was beaten by some Norwegian guy. He froze to death on the way back.
Frank: So, they should call him 'Scott Who Went to the Antartic...But Probably Shouldn't Have'.

The Two Men [1.06]Edit

Frank: I really think we should go out.
[Colin moans unenthusiastically]
Frank: It's worth a try.
Colin: I don't think so.
Frank: Give it a chance.
Colin: There's no way.
Frank: Come on, Col.
Colin: I'm not sure.
Frank: It just might work.
Colin: You really think so?
Frank: You never know.
Colin: I just don't...
Frank: You're coming 'round.
Colin: [enthusiastically] I think I am!
Frank: That's the way!
Colin: Let's give it a try!
Frank: I'm with you!
Colin: So I am!
Frank: Come on, let's go!
Colin: I gotta get ready!
Frank: Good idea!
Colin: I'm hitting the shower!
Frank: I am too!
Colin: [sternly] No, you're not! I like to shower alone. I mean, I like...I like you a lot. And we're gonna go out tonight. It's gonna be great. But I'd rather shower by myself if that's all the same to you. Okay?
[Colin and Frank grin and give each other two thumbs-up.]

Season 2Edit

Primal Warrior [2.01]Edit

Frank: I'm gonna go on a long walk and collect autumn leaves.
Colin: You'd better make it a long walk.
Frank: Why?
Colin: Because its SPRING...

Colin: I don’t think you’re pulling your weight, frankly!
Frank: My name’s not Frankly!
Colin: [confused] What?
Frank: You dropped the wood!
Colin: [looking around] Where?
Frank: NO you called me Frankly, my name’s Frank Woodley, frankly it makes me uncomfortable.
Colin: What makes you uncomfortable?
Frank: Frankly!
Colin: Yes, I wish you were just honest with me. What’s upsetting you?
Frank: I don’t like it when you drop the wood!
Colin: I didn’t drop the wood! Frankly, I don’t what you’re talking about!
Frank: Don’t call me Frankly!
Colin: Cut the wood!
Frank: I’m not cutting the Wood. It’s part of my name!
Colin: Grab an axe and cut up pieces of timber for me!
Frank: Oh, okay. Why didn’t you just say so!

Colin: You put the apple on your head and I'll shoot this arrow through your head... Through the apple on your head.

The Pool [2.02]Edit

Col: [dressed in the Penguin Man Costume] Hey look, I'm Penguin Man!
Frank: Hello Penguin Man. I wish my friend Col was here. He loves you.

The Easter Story [2.03]Edit

Frank: Do you believe in Harold, Col?
Colin: Harold? Who's Harold?
Frank: Harold. That’s God’s name, everybody knows that. It’s in that prayer: 'Our father, who art in heaven, Harold be thy name'.

Frank: [Holy music is playing.] It was the most beautiful voice I’ve ever heard. It was God’s voice. And God said... [The music stops.] ‘Frank. Frank, go back. You’re just winded, you’re getting completely carried away, now go back.’

Game Show God [2.04]Edit

[Colin and Frank are watching a game show to decide who’s smarter. Colin’s buzzer is a rubber duck, Frank’s is a whoopee cushion.]
TV host: What is a glockenspiel?
Colin: [Squeezes his rubber duck.] What somebody says when they’re trying to sell you a glocken.
TV host: What is the sum of the inside angles of a triangle?
Frank: [Squeezes his whoopee cushion.] Albert Einstein.
TV host: Who created Tom Sawyer?
Colin: Mr and Mrs Sawyer.
TV host: Ichthyology is the study of what?
Frank: Albert Einstein.
TV host: Name three prime numbers.
Frank: Albert Einstein.
Colin: What the hell are you doing?
Frank: Well, I haven’t got very much general knowledge, Col, so I thought I’d try using the law of averages.
TV host: What is the chemical symbol for sulphur?
[Both squeeze their buzzes, but neither answer. Col looks at Frank.]
Frank: Oh, I didn’t actually squeeze my buzzer then.

Frank: I've got beard fear!

TV host: Who created the formula e=mc2?
Frank: [Pause. He eventually squeezes the whoopee cushion.] Albert Einstein.
TV host: [To the contestant.] Hugo?
Hugo: Albert Einstein.
TV host: Correct! That’s it, Hugo...
[Frank looks shocked, Col looks outraged.]
Frank: It was Albert Einstein! And that’s the last question. And I’m the only one that got one right! So that means... that means, I won! I am the winner!

Mother [2.05]Edit

Colin: She may not have been my flesh and blood, but she was still my mum. She was there when I learnt how to walk, she was there when I learnt how to ride a bike... and when I got bullied at school by a kid who stole my lunch money and gave me a wedgie by pulling my undies up my bum, it was her who advised me to give up teaching.

I Love You Baby, Part 1 [2.06]Edit

Frank: That's it, tiger, walk to me!
Colin: Frank, the baby's a week old! Little baby can’t walk anywhere!
Frank: Well, that’s the sort of negative parenting that I've come to expect from you.

I Love You Baby, Part 2 [2.07]Edit

[Frank almost cuts Colin's towel to change the baby's diaper.]
Colin: Hey, what're you doing? That's my towel!
Frank: Eh? Oh, I didn't even realise. I just grabbed the first towel I saw.
Colin: [grabs Frank's towel] Well, why do we have to use my towel?
Frank: [swipes his towel from Colin] Well, why do we have to use my towel? [throws it onto the table with Colin's towel]
Colin: [chuckles] Look, this is ridiculous! This is so petty! Look, it doesn't worry me whose towel we use.
Frank: Well, it doesn't worry me either.
Colin: Okay, well if it doesn't worry you and if it doesn't worry me, we've just gotta use one of the towels. So let's just use, unhhh... [grabs Frank's towel] ...your towel.
Frank: [throws his towel back on the table] Col, don't start that again please. We haven't got time for that nonsense. We're in a hurry. Pass me...your towel.
Colin: [hands him Frank's towel, cheekily] Okay, there you go.
Frank: [realises it's his towel and places it back on the table] Hang on...
Colin: Okay! Fine, we'll use my towel. While we're arguing, the little baby is suffering in there with a dirty nappy! Why don't we just make a decision? We're using my towel. [grabs his towel and takes the scissors] It'll be better this way anyway. [prepares to cut]
Frank: Good. [stops Colin] Why would it be better this way?
Colin: Well my, towel's more hygenic. It'll be cleaner.
Frank: I think my towel's cleaner.
Colin: [throws his towel on the table] Alright, we'll use your towel!
Frank: Well, you turned around rather quickly!
Colin: Okay, we'll use my towel!
Frank: Good. [to the baby] We're gonna use Col's towel!
[Colin takes Frank's towel and rips it in half.]
Frank: That was my towel.
Colin: Oh, was it? Oh, sorry. Well, it doesn't matter anyway.

Colin: Get rid of the ploppy pants!

The IslandEdit

Frank: I can feel it in my bodice!

Frank: Mrs Pickles, me and Colin are going to Hawaii for two weeks, could you please remember to feed our cat?
Mrs Pickles: Okay.
Frank: Thank you Mrs Pickles.
Mrs Pickles: Okay.
Frank: [Climbs down steps. Stops.] Oh. Mrs Pickles?
Mrs Pickles: Yes?
Frank: I just remembered something fairly important about our cat.
Mrs Pickles: Yes.
Frank: We haven’t got a cat.
Mrs Pickles: Okay.

Frank: [Climbs steps. Knocks on door.] Mrs Pickles?
Mrs Pickles: Yes?
Frank: Mrs Pickles, I just came up with a brilliant idea. While we’re away, buy us a cat and remember to feed that!

Colin: Captain Fargas! Captain Fargas! What the Fargas is going on?

Frank: We’re on the island.
Colin: Yes.
Frank: Your tie.
Colin: Yes.
Frank: What about your microphone? It’s not, is it?

Colin: Pointers for surviving in a tropical environment. Look it says here, um, beware of the following plants…
Frank: [Gasps.] The following plants? I’ve never heard of following plants! What do they do after they follow you? Do they grab you and devour you with their woody limbs?
Colin: No they do not!
Frank: Do they eat you into their timber teeth?
Colin: No they don’t!

Colin: How did you learn how to climb a coconut tree?
Frank: 'Cause, once I was watching Getaway.
Colin: Getaway!
Frank: With Catriona Rowntree.
[Colin pretends to feel himself up.]
Frank: [Laughs.] We think we’re hilarious! Yes. And I saw the Fijians climbing them so I watched how to learn, I learned how to, I saw them! But there’s no coconuts.
Colin: What?
Frank: Must be the wrong season or something.
Colin: Bummer.
Frank: Maybe we can chew on these luscious palm fronds. Oh no, they taste all plasticy. You know what that tastes like?
Colin: What?
Frank: That tastes like the shade cloth you get at Bunnings. Lowest prices are just the beginning but unfortunately nutritional value isn't the ending.

Colin: Why don’t we split up into two groups…
Frank: Oh! [Waves his hand in the air.]
Colin: What?
Frank: Can I be in your group?

Frank: Don’t do anything stupid.
Colin: Yeah.
Frank: Like for example, if a fly lands on me check and walks across my top lip don’t go [sniffs loudly] and suck it up my nose. ‘Cause that would be stupid.
Colin: That would be stupid and dumb and wrong.
Frank: I did that once. It was stupid. [Goes to walk off stage but turns around.] No I really did do it. It was a weird moment. As it was walking across there I just couldn’t help but think, I reckon I could catch that! And I went [sniffs] and I caught, and I did! It was stupid.

Colin: Gee, nightfall comes quickly on this island. Must be something to do with no daylight savings in Brisbane.

Frank: I can’t stop thinking about homos. Lots and lots of lovely homos. It’s my favourite Lebanese dip.
Colin: Hummus!
Frank: Hummus!
Colin: It’s pronounced hummus!

Frank: Col, I’ve gotta be honest with you.
Colin: What?
Frank: I’m a little bit uncomfortable about how much swearing there has been on the show.
Colin: What?
Frank: In the show, there’s been too much swearing.
Colin: We’re on an island. We’re dying alright?
Frank: Yes but there, you know, we’re a very visual act. And so often, you know, sometimes kids come.
Colin: What?
Frank: There might be kids here and you know what? We’re not setting a very good example with all the language. I don’t feel like, are there any kids here tonight? Any kids at all? Here you are. What about this little, what’s your name mate? James. How old are you James? James is nine. He’s nine. You’re a role model for him.
Colin: If I’m his role model, he should get out more. I swear. There’s plenty of other role models okay?
Frank: James, I just wanna make it very clear to you okay? That um, even though we’re swearing in our show, a little bit, we’re certainly not encouraging you to ever use the word fuck.
Colin: What are you doing?
Frank: I need to make this clear. Don’t ever say fuck James. Don’t say fuck.
Colin: What?
Frank: If you said fuck James, that would be very bad. But we can say fuck because we’re in a show. In shows you can say fuck. Once, James, once we were in this show called the chickens. And it went for eight months. It was like a festival show. And it went for eight months and in the whole show all we ever did was go ‘fuck, fuck, fuck,’ it was a great show! But it was a show. Can you see the difference? You know, in a show you can say fuck, but you should never. Like for example, if your mum ever says to you ‘come on James it’s time for bed.’ Don’t turn around and go ‘that’s fuck.’ Don’t. Because if you, if you said that James, if you said that, do you know what that would be? That would be fuck. And I can say that 'cause I’m in a show. And I’m sure your father agrees with me, at least I certainly hope he does because he’s, he’s quite a large muscular man!

Frank: Are we going to do a song?
Colin: I’m doing a song. Piss off.

[Every time the word 'salt' is said, an ominous noise happens.]
Colin: We’ve gotta make some changes. We’ve got food, we’ve got water, what we need is leadership.
Frank: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Colin: So I’ve had a bit of a chat with myself and I reckon from now on you should call me something like, um, king. Okay, and um…
Frank: Col?
Colin: What?
Frank: There’s no way in the world that I’m ever gonna treat you as my king. [Colin gives Frank a nipple cripple.] Stop it, you’re hurting me your highness.
Colin: Okay that’s good. I’ll be King Col. ‘Old King Cole, what a merry old sole, what a merry old sole was he.’
Frank: Have you heard the second verse? It goes ‘Old King Cole, what a massive ass hole.’ Why do you get to be king? It’s not fair.
Colin: I’m you king, do not insult me! [Bam, bam] I said insult all right? I didn’t… [Bam, bam] I didn't say salt alright, I… [Bam, bam]
Frank: You’d better stop doing that mate or he’ll assault you. [Bam, bam] And he can do that cause he’s the king. He’s the sultan! [Bam, bam.]

[Trying to kill a chicken.]
Colin: What was your idea hummus boy?
Frank: You’re not gonna regret this king kong.
Colin: I hope I’m not.
[Frank retrieves the fire extinguisher and sprays the chicken.]
Colin: Hey, hey!
Frank: Gotcha!
Colin: What are you doing?
Frank: I’m eating the chicken.
Colin: You can’t kill the chicken with the fire extinguisher! That fire extinguisher is not on the island you idiot. It was from the theatre.
Frank: Col, we’re starving to death. I don’t think now is the time for rigid adherences to theatrical convention.
Colin: Look you idiot, if you can kill the chicken with the fire extinguisher that means if you want sweets you just go into the foyer and get a Kit Kat!
Frank: Well, I can’t do that 'cause I don’t have any money, because my wallet went down in the plane. Get a bit of brainage!
Colin: Give me the chicken.
Frank: No.
Colin: Give me the bird!
[Frank gives Col the middle finger.]

Frank: Have you seen Lord of the Rings?
Colin: No.
Frank: That trilogy of films, that’s the most successful trilogy of films in all history and you know why?
Colin: Why?
Frank: It had a happy ending. It won 11 Oscars 'cause it had a happy ending. 'Cause Frodo gets the ring and he throws it into the volcano at the end he destroys it. It’s a happy ending. He gets it back. Into the volcano with that big eye. I don’t know what that was all about. And he destroys it. It’s a happy ending. He goes through all those trials and tribulations but at the end he gets it back. He throws it in. it’s a happy ending. IT TOOK HIM NINE, FUCKING, HOURS! But he gets it back, he gets it in. it’s a happy ending. It’s happy. It’s a happy ending.

Frank: [Grabs the fire extinguisher.] Col, come over here.
Colin: No, don’t muck around with that okay, seriously, no seriously don’t muck around with that.
Frank: I’ve come up with a new end for the show.
Colin: Yeah, but I, look, we can talk…
Frank: You know how it ends?
Colin: Yeah, but…
Frank: It ends by me going ‘TAKE THAT!’ [Tries to spray Col with fire extinguisher. Nothing happens.] Okay, TAKE THAT ALL ONTO YA! AND YOU CAN ALL TAKE IT ON YOU! Well, that’s a bit embarrassing. Because I don’t know how to MAKE IT ALL BE TAKEN ON YA! I thought I just, must have been out of stuff. Unfortunate, isn’t it. It would have been much better if I could have made it BE ALL TAKEN ON YOU! You know. I could have made it be TAKE THAT ON YOU ON YOUR BODICE! You know. That would have been better. If I could’ve um, TAKE THAT! TAKE THAT ONTO YOUR SKIN SO YOU GET A COLD BURN WHICH I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW YOU COULD GET UNTIL ME AND CLEM WERE MUCKING AROUND WITH THIS BEFORE THE SHOW, AND I GOT ONE!
[Colin turns and walks to the side of the stage. Frank follows.]
[Colin drinks a bottle of water.]
[Colin finishes his drink and walks back to the centre of the stage.]
Colin: [There’s a long pause. Colin beckons Frank over, and says rather calmly,] If all the village idiots, in all the villages, left their villages, and formed their own village - OF IDIOTS - in that village, YOU would be the village idiot. [Another pause.] Take that into your backface.
Frank: Actually Col, I think you should TAKE THAT! [He whacks Colin in the face with the extinguisher.]

Colin: I did eat him, but I didn't kill him. He was already dead when I ate him. And I ate everything there was of him. His arms, his legs, his head, his little ball bag. I ate everything, Your Honour. And it wasn’t that tasty.

Colin: The relevant thing here is that I ate Frank, but I didn't kill him. And may I say when I did eat him I had the worst diarrhoea I’ve ever had in my life. Which proves once and for all that Frank really did give me the shits!

Frank: Do you sense their enchantment?
Colin: I sense their bewilderment!

Colin: Don't call me that!

Frank: You know, that's typical of you. Every single time we get into an argument, you always get so hung up on... the truth.

[After desperately searching for food, Frank resorts to eating the sand.]
Frank: Awwwwwwww! I hate it when there's food in my sand!


Colin: Out of all the audiences we’ve played to, you’d easily have to be… one of them.

Colin: I get sucked into the dickhead vortex.

Frank: C for Colin and F for –
Colin: Fuckwit.

Frank: Hi guy, try Thai high pie, bye!

Frank: He said, you sprinkle it on your shoulders and on your head, and the birds, they come and eat. And I, you know, I thought that sounded really sweet. So he sprinkled the bird seed on me, and the birds came. THEY WERE EMUS!!!

Frank: I’m a no bum talent, and you’re a no talent bum.

Frank: He turned my nanna into a scoopy bum!

Colin: Don’t you ever suck me again!

Frank: How do you come up with these ideas? Where do you find them in your, from behind your face? The Great Wall of China.
Colin: I just read about it in a book.
Frank: Oh, I’m hoping one day to read a book.
