Mrs Richards: And another thing, I asked for a room with a view!
Basil: [muttering to Manuel] Deaf, mad, and blind...
[He goes to the window and peers through it.]
Basil: Ah, this is the view as far as I can remember, madam… yes, yes, this is it.
Mrs Richards: When I pay for a view, I expect something more interesting than that.
Basil: That is Torquay, madam.
Mrs Richards: Well, it's not good enough.
Basil: Well, may I ask what you were expecting to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House, perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically—
Mrs Richards: Don't be silly! I expect to be able to see the sea.
Basil: You can see the sea. It's over there between the land and the sky.
Mrs Richards: I'd need a telescope to see that.
Basil: Well, may I suggest that you consider moving to a hotel closer to the sea?! [muttering to himself] Or preferably in it.
Mrs. Richards: Now listen to me. I'm not satisfied, but I've decided to stay here. However, I shall expect a reduction.
Basil: Why? Because Krakatoa isn't erupting at the moment?

Yeah, he had voice problems right through Lovetown. Australia had a few cancellations too. After the 20 and 21/10/89 gigs in Sydney, a doctor basically told him that if the next three shows (also in Sydney) went ahead, he'd ruin his voice completely, so they were postponed until after the New Zealand shows and held on 17, 18, and 19 November.

The first show after the postponement was 27 October 1989, Adelaide, which BEG saw in person.

Nope, which tells me it probably wasn't him.

The simple solution is just to post less, you know. You don't need to publicly disagree with/prove EVERYONE wrong...

Easily one of the best scenes ever.

Also, I love:

Mrs Richards: Didn't God give you eyes? Why don't you use them?
Polly: Because it runs the battery down.

That's the only place I can have seen it, and I definitely remember seeing it. I don't think I've watched it more than once, either.
I just remember thinking that I had that song on my comp somewhere... and having no idea what it was called.

Maybe I should, you know, watch the DVD sometime. It's got plenty of songs I know I'll enjoy!

Wow, Ali, your career as a comedian is off to a flying start!
