Cos there are no reasons What reason do you need to be shown

28 February 2006


So last night saw the last episode of this season of Life On Mars. Now what am supposed to watch on Mondays? I know, there is Lost, but it’s booooooooring. I want my retro 70’s cop/time travel/maybe just in a coma tv show back.

Anyways, to mark its final episode I’ve decided to list a collection of Huntisms. Yes, the Gene genie certainly had some great lines, but I know there are some I’ve forgotten/didn’t find to steal from other places, so if you can think of any more, let me know in the comments section


  • [to a group of armed men in a deserted cotton mill at night]
    Drop your weapons! You are surrounded by armed bastards!
  • [to some children playing on the street]
    Anything happens to this motor, I’ll come round to yer houses and stamp on all yer toys got it? …Good kids.
  • We’re here to talk about ‘ow yer brother copped it
  • Gene: I’m not a Catholic meself, Warren, but isn’t there something about ‘Thou shalt not suck off rent-boys’?
    Gene (Indicating rent-boy): ‘You could have said that to him!’
  • [Sam asks what year it is. Gene slams him against some filing cabinets]
    It’s 1973, almost dinnertime. I’m having ‘oops!
  • Is there anything more revolting than a dishonest ‘ippy?
  • Sam: I think i’ve got something
    Gene: Number for the special clinic’s on the wall
  • There will never be a woman Prime Minister so long as I have a hole in my arse
  • Sam: I’m the negotiator.
    Gene: I’ll make you a hat!
  • [Gene spikes some fella’s pint]
    Sam: I’m not sure that’s ethical.
    Gene: It’s not, it’s vodka.
  • Sam: If it was to do with football he’d have serious injuries!
    Gene: He’s dead. That’s quite serious.
  • Bloody hell I’ve seen road accidents look more cheerful than you.
  • [after driving his car in hot pursuit across a football pitch]
    Oi Ref Are you blind? Next time move or I’ll run you over!

    Sigh. Fence. Riots, rugby, tinfoil, and now Life on Mars. WHY do you persist on discussing items I am completely unfamiliar with? It's patently unfair, and need I say, inconsiderate.

    But I like you anyway. Good morning (afternoon, to you).

  2. Fence says:

    Morning. And Life of Mars is supposed to be going to <abbr title="United States of America">Na Stáit Aontaithe Mheiriceá</abbr> at some stage so you may become familar.

    You must have tinfoil in the states.

    And good morning, again

    Aloo-min-um foil. Like our word "aluminium" but pronounced in an American way.

    The Mighty Boosh and Kath and Kim were on BBC 2 one after the other last night. Bliss.

  5. anne says:

    Those are ace. Is it also coming to France?

  6. Alan says:

    I am in mourning. And then over the credits they tell you that Dalziel and Pascoe is on next week as if that's supposed to cheer us up or something!

  7. Kelly says:

    Oh yes, we have tinfoil. I was just being smarmy. We do call it aluminum foil, though, which is just stupid, and longer.

    Hi again.

  8. Fence says:

    Sin̩ad РI've heard about this Mighty Boosh thing, but never seen it. Kath and Kim is genius though.

    Anne – I don't know. sorry. But you never know, maybe you'll be in the states soon :)

    Alan – I've been to play, and order my dvd of Life On Mars. Not released for many many months, but it says commentary on every episode. Should be fun.

    Kelly, can you believe that I read your comment and thought to myself, How is US tinfoil longer than- doh! Obviously my brain has switched off.

  9. Sinéad says:

    Fence – check it out The Mighty Boosh

  10. Fence says:

    Sinéad, my connection at work is up and down like a yo-yo so I can't get past the loading screen, but I'll check out the site when I get home.

    Lost is boring? Maddening…but, not boring!!

  12. Fence says:

    So far in season two I'm afraid I'll have to go with boring. Far too much repeating themselves. And what was the deal with showing people sharing food for what seemed like a year?
    Though I have heard that this is where is starts to get good again. We'll see.

  13. NineMoons says:

    I find it best to watch Last while faffing on the internet. That way I don't get as bored. Having said that, I think last week's ep was better than we've had for a while. Which still ain't saying much.
