AbFab special: Gay

I watched it again this noon, and it's such a brilliant special with so many fab quotes! :lol:

My favorite scene has got to be the one in the hotel room, when Eddie tries to remove that paperclip... ''It's alright, we're married!'' It's the best possible example of the old married couple they sometimes are, haha. I also really like the fact that we finally get to see Serge in this episode, and that he turns out to be the male version of Saffy. ''Darling... Being gay is the best excuse you'll ever have for not being boring.

Genius.

Re: AbFab special: Gay

I loved Gay! There were so many truly funny moments in it, but my favorite of all was the Lady Nicotine bit where Whoopi kept wanting to sniff Jo's hair. Whoopi Goldberg is beyond amazing...she's definitely one of the funniest people on the planet and she seemed to fit right in with Jen & Jo.

Re: AbFab special: Gay

Is that my office? is still my favourite line. The way Whoopi says it is just so hilarious :lmao:
I would totally love to see her together with Jen and Jo in something, they worked brilliantly together.

Oh, The Strand - what a great place to go for AbFab filming location spotting! Surely you must have taken loads of pictures for us to see... :brows:

Didn't take any inside Strand as I was too busy shopping, and it has changed vastly since the filming of Gay. Photos are on FB and Flickr though!

Great photos, really! I wish I could visit these cities in the future, too.
By the way, did you see "The Good Wife" filming there? I just love this show!

Love the pictures of NYC - well done! They might have a changed a few things but at least that bookstore is still called 'The Strand'. I like it so, good. :lol: Did you buy anything fabulous there? (or got itchy eyes?)

Re: AbFab special: Gay

I bought a few books, a really cool NYC rucksack and some postcards. Great store, they have every book in print that they can stock and they will also order any book for you.

I did see The Good Wife being filmed at THe Plaza, but no stars unfortunately. I'll let you know when the episode airs!

Oh yes, please do so. Too bad you didn't see Christine Baranski or Julianna... but to see the actual filming must have been fun, too!

Did you know they were filming at this location or was it just a co-incidence? I wouldn't mind running into Christine either :wink:

Re: AbFab special: Gay

Ahh, I love love love Gay! I remember the first time I saw it, I got all lightheaded with excitement over the Blondie songs used throughout and was really pleasantly surprised to see Rob Roth making a cameo at Fashion Week.

Of course, I love Debbie even if she is only there fleetingly but my favourite part is when Patsy says "I can do that!" and Eddie burns the bar down :lmao:
