(Mr Carnegie is in the kitchen, crouching down by the fridge sniffing the little bits of food on the plate)

Basil (bemused) - "Er, can I get you the wine list?"
Mr C - "Pardon?"
Basil - "Oh don't worry have a look around, there's some stuff in the bin you might like, you know, cold rice pudding, potato peelings that sort of thing - not exactly Hote Cuisine but i'm sure it will fill you up"

(Sybil Enters)

"Ah Sybil may I introduce the man who's opened our new self-service department....Mr?"

Mr C - "Er Carnegie"
Basil - "Mr Carnegie....Gourmet scavenger...from?"
Mr C - "Er - the Public Health Department"
Basil - "....yes er where were you born Scavenger or down here in the West Country?"

Major: She's a fine woman, Mrs Fawlty.
Basil: No, no, I wouldn't say that.
Major: No, nor would I.

Basil — There is too much butter on those trays.
Manuel — Que?
Basil — There is too much butter on those trays.
Manuel — No, no, Mr. Fawlty, uno dos tres.

Hello, I am alive! Maybe I can spam the thread now.

Would you like something to drink before the war?

I have also stayed one weekend, in the Gleneagles Hotel in Torquay, where J.C and the other Pythons had the misfortune of coming across the worst hotel manager they had ever seen, who was also, THE RUDEST too. And of course, where John subsequently got the idea for F.T

Yes - I live just a 10 minute drive from this hotel, but I just HAD to go and stay there one weekend!!
*enviously hates you*

Some of the scenes are just too good for words:

- Major thinking he's talking to a moose head when it's really Manuel.
- Basil locking Manuel in the burning kitchen.
- Basil's Nazi march.
- The end of the hotel inspectors episode.
- Pretending to talk to Mrs Richards and then yelling in her ear.
- Stepping on the duck in the Gourmet Night episode.

And the best scene ever made for television: Basil beating up his car with a tree branch!

Upon learning the German guests were speaking to him in German.
Basil: Oh, German? I thought there was something wrong with you!

I'm just watching The Germans right now.

Major's rambling about some woman: I must've been keen on her; I took her to see India ... at the Oval!
