A game!

Let’s have a bit of fun/brain teasing.

See if we can remember who said what…,…

"a little light refreshment, Mr Shifter?’

‘Are you local?’

‘I want a clean shaven man’

‘I think I’ve got a lamppost attached to me mac’

‘Are you married?’

There you go, a few to kick the game off.

Add your own, please.


I thought ‘are you married?’ was Audrey Hepburn to Cary Grant in Charade.

No idea of the others. And I’m probably wrong anyway.

What about ‘gentlemen don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses!’


Oh bother,

My lack of culture has been found out. I would need help from mr & mrs Google so had to dis qualify myself.

who said “fish are friends” ? This should show my intellectual level.

The only cultural stuff I did at school was Macbethand to get us idiot boys interested they showed us Roman Polanski’s very violent film.

Ignorant Mick

It ain’t culture! Just daft telly stuff!

Keep guessing.


I googled Mr Shifter and now know which bit of my mushy brain to search

Was that the one with Keith Chegwin in as a young boy- we called it MacBreath because it was, we did it at school also… No idea about quote

Christmas is such hard work. Hello to all xx

Answers will be revealed in due course…don’t think too hard…there no Macbeth… Nor Roman Polanski!


Know 2. “Coo-ee Mr Shifter” was from the PG Tips adverts that ran for years “Dad. Do you know the piano’s on my foot?” “You name it son. I’ll play it” “Are you local?” was the Shopkeepers in the “local shop for local people” in League of Gentlemen.

The complete "PG Tips"advert is on ‘youtube’:

I don’t know any of the above (and I’ve resisted Googling), so here’s a couple for more ‘senior’ members…

"I see you shiver with antici… …pation!"


"When I’m good I’m very good, but when I’m bad I’m better".

Don’t know, but Steven Tyler sings this line in Falling in love is so hard on the knees…

Mae West?

Well done Sue, buy yourself a prize.


I’ve just checked out Steven Tyler on Utube. It’s plagiarism, he stole it from a legend…

One quote that made me snigger like a schoolboy.
