Whats the program?

Most programs have some kind of a catchphrase, so for a little light relief post a line and others guess the show.

For starters "Weak lemon drink"?

It was Stewart Lee and Richard Herring's "Fist Of Fun" and the character "Simon Quinlank" played by Kevin Eldon

Correct! Anyone got any other lines?

Here's an easy one: "I don't think so Tim"

How about this easy one:
"You wouldn't let it lie!"
?

"Weak Lemon Drink" was the 'catchphrase'? by Simon Quinlank who's just been on Hyperdrive. Doesn't look much different TBH.

I don't know, but I have some vague memories from the two ronnies or the morcambe and wise era of show?


And yes, Home Improvement is correct Krish, very comprehensive answer (I wouldn't have known the actor)


Try "I have a cunning plan.." ?

Yes, thought the balderick quote was too obvious, how about "I've made a huge mistake" ?

It was Morcambe and Wise.
Near the end of each show Eric would say:-
"there were two men sitting in deck chairs and one said to the other... "
Ernie would interupt him and say "you can't tell that joke here"
Eric "can't I ?" (raised eyebrows)
Ernie "no"
Eric "oh" (slumped shoulders)
I met Ernie Wise once or twice and on one occasion I asked him if there was a punchline to this joke. He said there is, the rest of it goes:-
"it's nice out isn't it ? "
"yes..... I think I'll take mine out"

Boom Boom
