What's your favourite Fast Show phrase?

Having recently embarked upon a 'favourite Monty Python sketch' thread, I thought I'd follow it up with a 'favourite Fast Show phrase'.... which was nice.

(edit) I did put a poll to this, but I included too many poll options! So... 'Which was nice', 'Suit you sir', 'Does she WANT it, Sir?', 'Scorchio', Heth-eth-eth-eth-eth-eth-eth' etc. etc.

When the announcer at the end says "That was the fast Show" :?: :?

I must confess that I never really got into the Fast Show in the way I had done with Harry Enfield etc, so didn't take to any of the catch-phrases at all :oops:

I must admit, I'm the complete opposite. I always thought Paul Whitehouse was the more versatile of the two when they were working together. I never really rated Harry Enfield, but the gradual character development in the Fast Show was always a source of interest, but there again, I've never had the most conventional sense of humour, whatever that is! ;-) My favourite character (as opposed to phrase) was Arthur Atkinson; a wonderful pastiche of what made people laugh in the 40s etc. and Tommy Cockles' introductions complemented it 'brilliant'ly! ;-)

Areas, a few years back.

"Today, we will mostly be playin' "Three Saints"!"

Bemused looks all around. Clearly all the banders present rehearsed on Friday nights and had never seen the first series of the Fast Show!

By far the best sketch featured the two "Steptoe-esque" old geezers cutting a small girls skipping rope in half.
LMAO.
