The things I love about Episode 1 of Series 1 of Spaced (in no particular order)

1. Brian's delivery of the 'so you had sex before you kissed' line
2. Tim & Daisy's expressions every time they think they're about to get rumbled (and the way they both say 'shit!')
3. Tim's explanation of his 'The Bear' comic
4. The cuts between scenes as the evening gets progressively later, and the use of props in the captions.
5. Daisy's comment about the rubbish and Tim's reaction.
6. The cut away to Mike flicking the elastic band at the cat (yessss!)
7. The Mice-Spider bit and the accompanying hitchhiker style graphics.

For a first episode it zips along well and for me is probably the 2nd funniest episode of this series (after ep 6 which is simply legendary)

8. The way Tim and Daisy get away with the fact that they had sex before they kissed, when they're clearly expecting to get rumbled.

9. Tim's expression when he realises he might be able to win back Sarah by playing up the fact that he's going to live with Daisy.

10. The fact that Daisy's method of tidying is exactly the same as mine: start tidying, get bored, and put a load of random stuff on (like rubber gloves and a stupid hat you found in the bottom of a cupboard) to cheer yourself up.

11. Mike tactlessly chucking Tims box of things into the back of his van.

Of course, she's a woman.

Should I have just shot myself instead?

13. Mike's salute and ''sahh'' to Tim outside Sarah's house

Love the running joke that a place like Tim and Daisy's flat can be rented for 90 a week. (as said by Simon on the commentary :: that's how i found out about it, cos i didn't get it at first)

Hehe...I love the explanation of how Tim got his scar!

Yes, cheeky bugger.

My highlights are:

Tim and Daisy's syncronised crying in the cafe (and singing along with "Getting know yoooou..." just beforehand. tongue.gif )

Tim sticking up for himself to Sarah - "If you don't like it...that's too baaaaad."

Seeing Daisy talk to herself when she's alone...I do that!! happy.gif

The Shaggy and Velma poses.

Tim and Daisy interrogation at the table by Brian and Marsha.

Heee - that was one of mine. wink.gif Also:

- Tim's Spidey impression in the montage
- the saliva dribble on Daisy's chin
- Tim's attempt to "Wha?, I, nnn, pshhht!" off Sarah's question before launching into his impassioned explanation of how much he loves her. (Nice try.)
- Brian: "Don't....ask her....if she wants to talk about it."
- Marsha: *exhale* "Bitch."
- "It's a little more complex than that" (both times)
- The fact that we never really find out why Daisy kept popping out of her bedroom at the end. (We know Tim was going for his FHM, but what's Steiner got up her hoodie sleeve, hmmm?)

The bit were brian's explaining his art

"like sausages?"

Ho! laugh.gif

The fact that they go to the extent of staging holiday photo's a la Green Card in order to get the flat and then Daisy's disappointment when they were not utilised in the interview;
Daisy -(sliding photo across table to Marsha) 'Don't you wanna see our photos?' Tim- (laughs nervously and retracts them.)

14 - "anger... fear... aggression"

- "...Watercolours?"

-Daisy's line after Tim has asked 'Do you like my comics?'

''Yeah, yeah. Oh yeah that reminds me actaully I was talking to Marsha about the rubbish...''

-Brian walking towards Tim naked except for a cowboy hat and the way Tim says 'Hello'
-On the commentary the way that Simon and Jess talk about how the line 'Do you mean am I gay?' Doesn't really make sense since it follows the line 'Do you rent downstairs?'
-Brian's unsure 'No' after Tim asks him if he's gay
-'Look, modern science fiction can be pretty interesting. The thoughts and speculations of our contemporary authors and thinkers have probably never been closer to the truth' (Cut to aliens outside Fantasy Bazaar laughing)
-''I have no memory of christmas 1979. Then again I have no memory of Christmas 1994 either'' ''Oh why not?'' ''I don't know''
''FHM voted her sexiest woman in the world in 1996'' ''What about you?'' ''I wasn't placed''

Just a few of the best bits.

When the two Girl Guides are saying "It took forever.... and ever.... and ever" I love the red smash cuts of Tim and Daisy's screaming faces. Very sinister.

>>-On the commentary the way that Simon and Jess talk about how the line 'Do you mean am I gay?' Doesn't really make sense since it follows the line 'Do you rent downstairs?'<<

*snerk* Yeah, the line should really be "do you park in the rear?" or something to that effect. laugh.gif Not...really...funny....though...

As far as the 1.1 commentary, then definitely the baby photos bit. (Simon, on his own pics: "cute, cute, cute, CUTE!"....and on Jess's, "evil, evil, evil, EVIL!")

I think it does make sense kind of. Brain obviously had sex on the brain, the horndog. biggrin.gif

It's kind of similar to the Big Train sketch from series two, where anything anyone says Mark Heap simply responds to by getting offended and saying "was that some reference to me not being married?" before eventually clipping off his own finger.

I think the fact that it doesn't really make much sense is why it's hysterical. The look on his face is genius, and the follow up lines just hammer in the comedy.

Forgot to mention Daisy's strangled "We're so busyyyyy" during the interview with Marsha. laugh.gif

The part that made me continue watching.

My fave bit of Beginnings is the montage in the diner, the best one being when Tim uses the bottles as eyes.

The best bit about it is that its the beggining of the greatest show ever made!
