Building up a true moment of Grand Guignol, when Mark and Jeremy go away on a canal boat during a weekend. A mind-blowing series of comic events feature Jeremy eating ‘turkey drumsticks’ and then covering up accidental slaughter, incineration and Aurora’s dead dog story.

During 2006, it was being rumoured that the show would not be commissioned for a fourth series, but, a huge DVD revenue collection from earlier series inspired the fourth series to be commissioned.

Jeremy:: I am… with Free… the Paedos… can’t we call it something… and…

Super Hans – Yeah?… Or… compromise… and…

This is an amazing piece of creativity that innovates the art forms. The dialogue is worth hearing repeatedly.

This dialogue indeed was a fun collaboration between the writer and the producer.

  1. Episode 5 of Series 4:: Holiday

Mark:: Jeremy… are many things… hole in the wintry… my bare hands… of a dog… you killed… is not one…

These lines narrate the incident when Jeremy goes to hide a dog that he had killed accidentally. Then, Jesse suggested that he ate it. The idea seems most ridiculous ending up on screen. The script is an enriched version of sarcasm blended with intense creativity.
